Yosemite Gateway Motel, Lee Vining
Very Good8.0
An average motel with a great location. Ideal base for visiting Yosemite National Park and Mono Lake. Terrific diner across the road. However, the rate was a little high compared to its quality.

The bed was great. The room was clean. Very noisy and didn't feel very safe. There was no ac but a water cooler.

Nice room with a view
We were pleasantly surprised. The property grounds showed its age however we had a great room. It was very clean and it appears there had been some remodeling done inside. We had a great bed and were able to sit outside on a patio with a view of Mono Lake

Gorgeous view but otherwise unimpressive
Breathtaking views of Lake Mono and convenient to eastern gateway to Yosemite. Room was small, dated, and uninviting. Bed was hard and uncomfortable. Overpriced for what you get.
