Americas Best Value Inn - Mariposa Lodge

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

On arrival, room was very hot. AC wasn't on. Wr turned it on and were out for an hour. It was better, but didn't really get comfortable till about 4 hours later. Left a note for housekeeping to leave it on during the fay and no further problems. Overall room had a dated look. But was plenty comfortable for our needs.

Couldn't have asked for much more. We stayed two nights as a launching place for Yosemite. The beds were extremely comfortable (we had trouble getting up and out to the park) and the bathroom was clean and nicely tiled. I was also pleased that after realizing that I had left my wallet on the table next to the bed when we went to breakfast, nothing was missing from it even though the housekeeper had come and gone.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Mariposa Lodge. It was clean, beds were comfortable and the flowers and landscaping were beautiful. The Sugar Pine Cafe a 2 minute walk was fantastic. Great breakfast. We ate there every day.

My husband and I stayed at the model for a night before visiting Yosemite National Park the next day. The location was excellent, and Mariposa is a lovely small town less than an hour from Yosemite National Park, with a reasonable choice of restaurants and shopping. The staff were courteous, the motel was right on Hwy 140 and easy to find, and the room was clean. My husband found the bed too soft for his back, but I thought it felt fine. I only wished they provided breakfast and the wireless internet was faster. Overall, I would say it is excellent value for money.

Great place to stay, close to park. Only did not provide breakfast as most do but that was the only thing. Other then that it was excellent.

This is a very nice hotel. A little older but we'll maintained. Easy check in.

This place is located very convenient for access to Yosemite. It has everything we need. I've visited many national parks and stayed in many hotels near or inside the park. This one deserves the best choice for the bucks. The room is clean and nice. The price is very reasonable as well. Definitely will consider stay here again for the next Yosemite trip.

Everything was at its best, except WiFi connection which was pathetic...

Don't. Take the room near road as too noisy by traffic starts 7:00am. Though traffic is less after 9:00pm. WIFI is poor.

Excellent Rooms and cleanliness for a motel. Only a one our drive to yosemite and thus an ideal Place to stay the night before or after you have visited the park.

Room was clean. Air conditioner ran a bit noisy, but I was glad it was working after a hot day at Yosemite. Much cheaper than staying in the park.

Very nice, cozy place to stay. Walking distance to restaurants, shopping, etc. The parking is kinda tricky, but other than that, nice place to stay.

Staying here was perfect for my husband and me. The hotel is great for visiting Yosemite. You can go from the hotel to the park and back easily in a single day. This hotel has large rooms and are exceptionally clean. Restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel, as well. It would be nice if there were a fitness room, but walking in the area can make up for that.

When we began our search for a hotel close to Yosemite, we were disappointed that we couldn't get any closer than Mariposa within our budget, but once we arrived we concluded that Mariposa was the best choice. It provides more food options, balance, value, and breathing room than the park and the isolated hotels closer to the park.

This was a great motel EXCEPT for the thin walls. The action heard from the rom next door might sounded as if it was two feet away.

We were tired from our trip to Yosimite and looked on the map for a town to go to. We chose the Inn after looking it up on the Internet. It was clean and safe and the town was sweet. Local food was good. We enjoyed our stay.

Location of the hotel was convenient. Comfortable beds and spacious room for the two of us. The cleaning staff did a fantastic job. The shower trickled and took twice as long to shower. The bath fan did not work so leaving the window open to air out the steam was the only option. Wifi was advertised but was very weak and it was hard to get a hold of front desk.

We stayed here while visiting Yosemite. It isn't far away and was a very nice little town and a very comfortable place to stay. Definitely worth the price in a very friendly town.

I know Mariposa is a small town as it is but America's Best Value in was a perfect retreat after being in Yosemite all day. It is conveniently close to everything (walking distance) and had the perfect amenities for us....IE coffee maker, fridge, desk. For the price, this hotel was totally worth it1

This was a great place to stay while visiting Yosemite. one of the closest outside west park entrance. The pool was a small and location of hot tub was not the best, but overall nice and clean, very friendly person in the office. I would stay at this location again
