The location was great. The room was clean and comfortable and having a restaurant close by was convenient.

This was my 3rd time staying here and won't be the last. The manager is super friendly. He got us into our room even though we were way early for check in. Seemed genuinely interested in what we were doing during our stay.

This property is conveniently located in close proximity to Yosemite National park, especially the Hetch Hetchy area. Close to the highway- but you do not hear the highway. They do charge a fee of $5 due to their remoteness as it makes it more difficult to provide things. Well- pool was closed, hot tub was closed, no breakfast provided... For the price you pay you just get the room. That's pretty much it. Noise insulation could be better- you do hear your neighbors. The rooms were newly renovated. And property was in a great condition. It is a motel though.

Pros: Clean room etc... Easy check-in, friendly people at the desk; very good restaurant nearby Cons: One towel had a big yellow spot on it; it was definitely after the laundry... There were a lot of clean ones, but for 150 a night... time to use different laundry maybe?

Went to Yosemite for a couple days, called the lodge that I’m going to arrive at 2am, stuff was friendly and helpful, left a key with my name to pick up. A room was big and clean.

Close to the entrance of Yosemite. That was the reason of our stay.

Great place, nice and clean.

Great, safe little lodge in the mountains. Not many dining options other than Lucky Bucks next door, whose hours were inconvenient. But down the road a bit there’s The Hungry Bear. Much better hours and has a market, gas and shopping all right there. Yosemite Westgate Lodge is a great place to stay! Felt safe and loved the amenities! Also, our room was ADA compliant and VERY spacious!

We planned to book this the last minute and were unsure if it was kids's friendly as we were traveling with a 5yr old and an 8 yr old. The room was clean and it has a small play area for kids. The lodge hotel doesn't have a restaurant by itself, but there's a restaurant adjacent named Lucky Buck which serves fresh American breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I loved the location, the Lucky Buck diner is always a good place to eat they have vegetarian options which is rare for being in the mountains. Wasn't a fan of the extra $5 charge on my card that I wasn't informed about. I don't know why it isn't included in the price of the hotel.

This was a nicer, clean, updated motel but I still believe it was overpriced for the location. Nearly an hour to Yosemite, no amenities or breakfast, just 2 keurig pods. Also had to wait outside in 30 degree weather waiting in line to check in with what I presume were the grumpy owners. All in all I’m glad we had a clean place to stay but I’ll definitely look into other options next time around

Great location near Yosemite Gate and right next to very good restaurant. Biggest complaint was no table in the bedroom. Bed and shower were both very good.

Recently completed a stay at a junior suite, served as our base for a two-day trip to Yosemite. Our room had everything we needed for four adults and a one-year-old child. The hotel appears to have been recently updated, yet still maintains the charm of a lodge. Because of COVID, room service was suspended, making us feel a bit more comfortable. We took advantage of the in-room microwave to heat up food. Overall very decent stay. The lodge is about an hour drive from Yosemite Valley.

Dear Gediminas, We appreciate the time you took to leave us a review. We are so glad to know that you chose us due to our proximity to Yosemite National Park. We do hope you had fun there. It upsets us to know that you had issues regarding the noise coming from the neighbors and surrounding areas. It is sad to know that the on-site amenities such as the hot tub were closed during your stay. We will ensure that we do improve our hospitality services and sincerely apologize that you weren’t served breakfast during the stay. We will surely try to resolve the issues you faced during your stay. Kind Regards, Yosemite Westgate Lodge Management
