Best Western Plus Yosemite Way Station Motel

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

NICE LOCATION AND EASY TO FIND. THE ROOM IS OLD BUT VERY CLEAN. I RECOMMAND.

Convenient for us. Benefit of fridge and microwave inside room. No hotel services but free breakfast was not bad-yet at other Best Westerns there was more food choices for breakfast. I would stay there again. Restaurants in town-we particularly liked 1851 and a burger place nearby.

Friendly staff and great location near Yosemite. I highly recommend stopping by the town Visitor Center as they can tell you which paths are closed etc and are a great resource, especially if it is your first visit.

The hotel was pretty quiet. The walking distance to the Pizza Factory has very good foods. The hotel is conveniently located close to the 140 hwy, which has a very nice view going to the Yosemite National Park.

Everything was good enough comparing with other brand motels. However, facilities were not good as much as other BW plus at other area. Everyone was so kind and friendly.

First room they gave us was not cleaned, but they gave us anothet room. Hotel staff was very nice, and made us dinner reservations, and gave is a coupon.

We stayed one night this week on our trip up CA49 to see gold country. Mariposa is also a great place to stay if you can't get a spot in Yosemite. The hotel staff were very accommodating of us and our dog, Bobby. The complimentary breakfast was very good and we had fun.

Very nice hotel. We had a large group (15 people) in 4 rooms. Very comfortable stay and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Best place in Mariposa I know of.

Easy to get in and out of the hotel parking lot in order to drive on the main street thru Mariposa. Very quiet, comfortable room. This was our 3rd stay here.

As stated above, nice location with easy access to and from all venues in the town. The staff was excellent, friendly, very knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms very, very clean, everything was in working order and I felt very safe while I stayed there.

The Best Western Plus in Mariposa was fine and I'd recommend it for any Yosemite tripper looking for an affordable place to stay. Mariposa itself looked pretty cute, but we weren't there during the day to enjoy it. The room was clean, with a couch, fridge, desk, and a shower with nice water pressure.

I stayed here 2nights to visit Yosemite National Park on Saturday and Sunday mid March. The distances for both gates to enjoy Yosemite Valley and Mariposa Grove were very good. Both were just around one hour. But vent fan in bath room was too noisy and additional door lock for keeping private didn't work well sometime. (The main lock was ok) Internet speed on Wifi was not so fast to watch videos.

We stayed in this hotel to be ready to go into Yosemite by bus which we caught down the very interesting street. While staying there we got to go to a museum of the gold rush and beyond very interesting and well done museum and informative docents.

A little bit far from the park entrance, but close to the Mariposa village, dining is easy and the price is quite reasonable

Clean, safe, plenty of restaurants in Mariposa for the evenings. A good lower-cost location for day-trips into Yosemite Valley... so long as you don't mind a ~1hr drive into the valley each day.

The room was great. The only complaint was that the trash bin that was located in the parking lot close to our room was overflowing.

Very nice hotel. I recommend strongly when visiting Yosemite Park

Hotel was okay, best part of the stay was breakfast. Rooms were small, though not much time spent in the room. Located conviniently near Yosemite. Go for it if you want a cheaper get away.

one of the nearest and most affordable place to stay at when visiting the Yosemite national park. It was actually our second time staying here. From the last time I was here, all rooms are renovated, from fresh wall paint, headboards to flat screen TVs. Nobody can beat the price.
