I'm so sorry your stay with us was not up to our standards. We do offer 46 free channels in our rooms and we do not have any channels that you have to pay for. We do not have an elevator but even if you are on the third floor you would only have to go up one flight of stares. I am sorry this was an inconvenience and if it was brought to our attention we would have moved you to a room with no stares and would have fixed your TV or moved you to a room with a functioning TV. Again I am so sorry your experience was unsatisfactory, we do strive to do all we can to make our guests happy. I hope you will come stay with us again so we can improve your experience.

Two night stay for Yosemite site seeing

This is more of a motel set up with a one way traffic flow around building. Do not try to cross the road on foot best done by car (drop off and complex Y intersection). Somewhat colder time of the year, blankets on the beds were quite thin and no extras were in the room storage closet. Bathroom was very well renovated. Breakfast was done near the pool in a separate building / room. Large concentration on bulk offerings here which should possibly be rethought for health and sanitary concerns. To many shared bulk food items, ketchup bottle, yogurt, cereal dispensaries, etc. Waste bin locations moved closer to the door opposite side of serving area. Better control over plates, cutlery etc. Reuse of Ceramic plates used primarily in dining hall. Town has a few dining and touristy options. Liquor store across the street. Close to Yosemite.

Did not stay

Pros: See above notes
Cons: See above notes
Location: See above notes
Got to hotel at noon. Proceeded to our destination (Yosemite Park) and found the park was too far away from the motel. (42 miles). When I tried to cancel our reservation I was told the reservation had been made thru Expedia and a one night stay penalty would be charged. When I insisted it had been made thru Travelocity and gave them the Travelocity confirmation number they still insisted it was an Expedia reservation. They called me back a few hours later and told me that because of the mix-up they were going to cancel the reservation with no penalties charged. This showed class and we appreciated the gesture. Due to the great accommodations offered for the price we would definitely stay there when in that area again.

Loved Mariposa

Pros: Comfortable, nice pool, nice breakfast room. Close to a park.
Cons: can't think of anything
Location: just about an hour away from Yosemite, The weekend we were there the town of Mariposa was celebrating a butterfly festival that was fun.
The directions said take highway 99 to highway 140. When we got to 140 the off ramp was closed. Panicking we called the hotel and they were so great. Told us how to go around and get back on 140. We got to Best Western Plus just fine, and the staff was pleasant and efficient checking in. The next morning my travel companions and I were amazed how the breakfast staff was friendly, helpful and did everything to make breakfast a pleasant experience. They really seemed like they enjoyed being there. Will stay there again.

So-so

Pros: Free breakfast
Cons: poor wifi connection
When I changed number of sleepers, the manager asked $20 more than reserved at first. Somewhat expensive in total for considering general quality. The 2Q bedroom had a table with chairs. Wifi connection was not strong. Continental breakfast was provided in the small lobby, which was very crowded with people then, and the food was so-so.

far from yosemite national parks

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: Nothing close, Noisy, Poor breakfast, internet is very very very slow
too far from desirable yosemite national parks. at least 1.5hrs away from the nearest one. not worth the savings compared to other hotels which are a bit more expensive but very close to the site. you would think it is priced cheaper considering its distance from the parks. i would rather pay more next time but be close to where i want to explore.

OVERCHARGES

BE AWARE: this motel charges extra for childen upon checkout. I had a Bestwestern.com invoice (booked 5-1-12)for 2 guests and 2 children ages 17, 13 yrs old; total for stay: $354, but the motel charged $398 and would not acknowledge the reservation invoice rate (neither would Best Western Customer Service). It seems the motel charges additonally beyond stated rates.
