"Decent Hotel"
Nice hotel pretty close to the west gate entrance. We went during off season and just spent one night. The hotel was clean and everything was remideled and updated. The toiletries are generic and I was glad I brought my own. Of course it's not the Hilton in San Francisco but still much better than a motel 6. The restaurant next to the hotel is closed thanksgiving through February and there is no convenience store close by. Thank goodness we knew this ahead of time and brought food and snacks. There is a microwave and fridge in the room. There's a nice small playground and plenty of grass area, if it wasn't dark when we arrived the kids would have played football out there. The pool was also closed for the season but probably would have been fun if the weather were warmer. Overall nice and clean, definitely served well for an overnight stay. Of note, there is no early check in. We arrived at 10 am but were advised we could not check in until 11 am. No biggie we just went into the park and checked in when we came back in the evening. It would have been nice to be able to unload some of our luggage though and with other hotels we think it's nice to check in early to get it out of the way.

"As close as possible to the park"
We spent only two nights, but it was enough for us to live it. We think that it worth each cent we spent. That's all. If you need something sophisticated, have a look in other places. Three main points: good location, clean room and new furniture. Perfect.

"okay room but..."
The room was okay but thats about it. There was nothing in the name of amenities. While they can not help with the fact that there is no mobile network there as it is a remote area, the absence of wifi (or atleast internet kiosk) and phone service (go to reception and pay $2 for every call) was an absolute shock. If you like to be completely cut off from the outside world while on vacation, this is the place for you. Otherwise, avoid this hotel if you can. PS: There was no breakfast either so, that was an added inconvenience too as you dont see too many places there where you can eat.

"Nice location"
The bed was not as comfortable as I would have expected. There is absolutely no internet or mobile phone connection, so plan accordingly. This hotel does not offer any wifi service at all, so you're basically all alone if you were hoping to stay connected to anyone at home or work. Not necessarily a bad thing, but you do need to plan for that.

"Could offer more"
We were a bit disappointed with no wifi and also no food/breakfast offered. Closest dinner was 11 miles away in Groveland. Not really what we were looking for at the end of a big day. Suggest for anybody going to stay in Groveland or Coulterville with more facilities.

"Good Stay, and Will Come Back !"
The room is very clean, more than a 3-star hotel. The lodge has a great location to Yosemite Park about 20 minute driving when the weather is sunny, and located in a tranquil location - We love it. Also, my daughter enjoys the Hot Jacuzi Tub at night very much. The only suggestion that if they can have WiFi, I will rate them as a 5-star.

"Relaxing get away"
Hotel is in a town whose signs say the population is 50. Peaceful, forested area. A roadside restaurant is next door. At this time of year (week before Thanksgiving) there were about 5 or 6 families in the restaurant and one server. Room had microwave and fridge. Wi Fi was not working. It is about 37 miles from Valley floor or 1 hour. It is the closest place without booking a room in the valley itself. I was very happy with the place. It had a hot tub. I did not try it, but the kids of other families appeared to be loving it

"Nice place to hole up for a weekend."
This was a great little hotel/motel, in close proximity to Yosemite, and Groveland. It's an easy drive either direction, and groveland is a great town to grab eats after driving or walking around yosemite for the day. It's only about 15/20 minutes to Yosemite, and there are plenty of other great hiking spots nearby.

"No WiFi"
Stayed 2 nights, everything was ok. Prices pretty high, but then again, it's the closest hotel outside of yosemite national park's westgate. Why they don't have WiFi, I don't really understand, since they are able to receive online bookings, so there must be some kind of internet connectivity.

"Just outside Yosemite"
My sister and I stayed at Westgate to be as close to Yosemite as possible so we could utilize our entire first day. This was the perfect place to stay - it was very clean, had all the amenities we needed, and convenient. Note that they do no have internet and cell phone reception was non existent on our AT&T phones but I had enough extended service on a Verizon phone to let our mom know we arrived safely... so thankfully we had done our research and planned our time in Yosemite in advance since we wouldn't have been able to get on any sites/maps. But it's the perfect place to rest, and enjoy the fresh, chilly air first thing in the morning! And the hot tub looked inviting should you want to rest the legs after a day of hiking!

"Great location for day trips into Yosemite"
This hotel is in a good location if you're looking for something outside of the park that is reasonably priced and not too long of a drive to get into the park. The staff were helpful & friendly. There is a restaurant next door that serves breakfast & it also has a bar & pool table. The address says Groveland but it is a good 15 minutes to drive into town.

"Go Somewhere Else"
Upon approach, I thought we were coming to a Motel 6 or similar. The lobby parking was at the doorstep of a simple lobby. We were greeted (if you want to call it a greeting) by a somber man who probably never has a good day. He checked us in and summarized by saying, "no smoking, no pets, no wi-fi." Thank God the rooms were nice but there is nothing else that I can say that relates to a positive experience.

"Nice accommodations close to Yosemite"
We enjoyed a two night stay at the Yosemite Westgate Lodge in October 2014. After an adventurous and scary car ride to its location on Hwy. 120, we found the hotel very comfortable and clean. The staff was able to fulfil our late request for a ground floor room since their are no elevators. Located in a very rustic setting, the lodge was almost vintage. An excellent restaurant next door was very welcoming and offered a fantastic menu at great prices. We highly recommend the Yosemite Westgate Lodge and would definitely stay there again. But beware . . . The Hwy. 120 drive to the lodge is very challenging and should not be taken lightly. Only an experienced driver should be behind the wheel.

Average accommodations and a full hour from the valley floor of Yosemite. The northwest gate is not the one to use if you are at all acrophobic. It's a steep, winding, scary drive. Better to enter from the south---hwy 41.

"Motel Could Not Provide Services They Advertised."
We picked the Westgate Lodge in no small part because they were one of the few hotels near Yosemite that advertised free wi-fi. When we signed in and asked for the wi-fi password, the clerk pointed to a sign on the desk that said that the wi-fi service had been stolen by Yogi Bear. I'm sure they thought this was amusing, but I failed to see the humor. Both my wife and I have jobs that, unfortunately, do not allow us the luxury of being completely out of touch for any length of time. Since cell phone signals are virtually non-existent at Yosemite, we knew we needed to have wi-fi access on this trip. They refused to offer a discount and refused to give us a refund when we decided to leave early due to the lack of service. They'll be hearing from my credit card company.

"Nice lodge in the moutains"
This hotel is near Yosemite National Park, and comes with the atmosphere of mountains which I liked. The staff was friendly, and the rooms (my party stayed in 3 rooms) were clean. I saw many cute bear carvings and statutes on the premises, but missed the real ones (I was told there were a mama bear and two cubs). The only regret is that the Wi-Fi service was not available. That had been stolen by Yogi bear.

Close to Yosemite park, about 30 mins to west gate and an hour to the center of the valley. there is a restaurant next to the motel they are open from 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM which is very convenient but the service was kind of slow, we got there at 7:00 AM for breakfast but ended up waiting about 50 mins after order.
