I recently stayed here while visiting with a friend to see Yosemite. The location is very convenient. It’s about 15 mins from the entrance. There is also a restaurant next-door called Lucky Bucks, that serves reasonably priced food and beverages. They offered a late check in as we were driving in from LA. It was very easy to find and the office was being attended, even at night. Under normal circumstances the pool and fire pit would have been open, but during Covid, those were closed. The rooms have small refrigerators, hair dryers and coffee makers for your convenience. Housekeeping was not done daily but could be requested. It was a comfortable room however be advised it is only two stories... we were on the first floor and there is a place across the street that houses roosters that go off very early in the morning. If you are a light sleeper, I suggest ear plugs. Also, the first floor is next to the parking lot so you hear lots of noises from patrons coming and going from the park at different hours.

Good location for North side Yosemite entrance

Very clean and spacious rooms. Added perk of fridge/freezer combo in the room. LARGE bathrooms and plenty of towels. DISH television offered clear service and hotel wi-fi was strong. Road construction between hotel and Yosemite so plan accordingly. The neighboring Cafe was open and anxious to serve; our dinners there were good and well-portioned.

We had a pleasant 2-night stay at the Yosemite Westgate Lodge and will not hesitate to stay here on future trips to Yosemite. The rooms were fresh, clean, and roomy; the room temperature was perfect and the beds were comfortable. A café serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner is conveniently located a short walk across the parking lot. It is a quick trip (12 miles) to Yosemite’s Big Oak Flat Entrance. Then a lovely trip down to the valley. On the way stop at the Merced Grove for a nice hike to see some of the park’s notable Giant Sequoias. As our stay coincided within the second week of Yosemite re-opening after the Covid shutdown, we were pleased to see the motel staff practiced proper safeguards at all times. Well done Yosemite Westgate Lodge.

The hotel is nicely located about 20 mins from Yosemite National park entry and 10 mins from the Rainbow Pool which I highly recommend for a day in the water. Rooms were very nice with modern equipment, microwave, lights with USB chargers, fridge, a/c and even a in-room safe. There is a playground for kids and a poo although they are closed now due to COVID. Also, there not many close locations for food so make sure you bring some snacks or food with you. Finally, during Covid pandemia be AWARE that you need to make reservation for Yosemite well in advance: they are limiting visitors and without reservation you cannot go in. We did not go in, were upset (no fault of the lodge) and don’t want the same to happen to you. However, notification on the hotel websites would be very appropriate to let people know about this requirement.

beyond expectations

The room was so spacious, two queen sized beds, an eating area, desk and a full couch. You're not weaving your way around these items either, there's plenty of room to spread out. I was amazed to say the least, especially for the price. The bathroom/shower area was also spacious. I liked how the towels were stored on a wooden wall fixture with separate compartments for each one. They were rolled nicely and looked (and were) clean and fresh. Everything in the room was clean, i really appreciated that. I have already recommended it to family and friends and will stay there again for sure.
