We stayed here on a road trip through south-west USA and were really pleased with the hotel (motel). The accomodation is quite a way out of Groveland (half way between Groveland and the park entrance) but there is a restaurant next door if you don't want to drive back to town. The room was perfectly ok and the pool/jacuzzi were...

A nice place for a night. It is rather close to the national park entrance and apparently to one that is not too busy so there is little traffic into the park. It takes about an hour to get to Yosemite village. Rooms are spacious and nice, also rather quiet. There is no breakfast and also no WiFi. The next...

Our family of 5 slept comfortably here. The rooms are spacious and clean. There is a restaurant next door that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and other nearby places to eat that are very good. The outdoor pool was great for the kids and they have a small playground. This hotel is about 15 miles from the park entrance, but...

The hotel facility is not bad, bed is comfortable, shower is warm. But the worst thing that can happen is an angry hotel manager. My friend arrive late at the airport and I have to drive all the way from san francisco to the Yosemite westgate lodge. The road is not a easy drive at night and we are all...

I stayed over at the Yosemite Westgate Lodge during Labor Day weekend from Saturday - Monday. Right at checking in I was charged $45 more than what my original amount should be. They made 100 excuses even though I had a print out of what the total amount was with all the taxes included. We got to hotel on Saturday...

My family of 5 stayed here on a last minute off-shoot of our vacation.
