Nice and quiet place with good and clean rooms in the reasonable driving distance from the park entrance. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a comfortable stay in Yosemite and doesn't want to spend a small fortune for renting rooms in Yosemite Village. Restaurant nearby is

The Yosemite Westgate Lodge was a nice, clean place to stay and comfortable after a long day of visiting and hiking in Yosemite. Our room had two beds plus a little sofa and table with four chairs plus a microwave and fridge. A bonus was the washer and dryer that was made

Stayed, again, at the Yosemite Westgate Lodge on 12/22 and 12/23. The owner upgraded us to the Bridalvale Suite upon check in. What a nice surprise! While their prices have increased quite a bit over the years (especially the in season rate) the rooms are clean, comfortable and

I’ll start off with the bad.. Air conditioning was not working when we checked in. Called reception who told us they reset the system. A while later it stopped again. Two phone calls later the owner came around to the room. The owner first pretended that the AC was functioning

We had a great experience! Room was big, clean and comfortable. It had nice touches like a fire place and hot tub! The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The location was close to the attractions. I would highly recommend.

I do not recall any public transportation being available at or near the Westgate Lodge. If I were you - I'd call the lodge directly and ask them what's available. Good Luck. - Ed

I don't think you will be able to work properly. The hotel where we stayed, did not have an internet connection. They will allow you to use their PC in the lobby but only for checking flights and email but can't surf. Hope this helps

what's the best way to see Yosemite in 1-2 day?
If you have only 1 day. drive the valley loop. short hike to lower Yosemite falls, short hike to mirror lake on the north side of the creek, visit Ahwahnee hotel. If you have 2 days, there are a number of other hikes that are excellent. If Tioga Pass road is open, it's a must see drive. Avoid July and August if you ca. It is a spectacular place to visit, no matter what time of the year.

what's the best way to see a lot of Yosemite during a 1-2 day visit?
To get the most on a short visit is to stay in the valley. The guided tour of the valley loop is fabulous. We also loved the bus service to hop around to several different stops in the valley.

"We had an accessible room (not sure why). It was huge."
"Rooms with double twin bedas are larger and with more windows."
"we stayed in 104 and liked the room. 2 Queen bed."
"No elevators, if you have trouble with stairs, ask for a first floor room."
"Away from the pool is probably the best location for noise reduction"
