From its beginnings as a chain of motels back in 1946, Best Western has expanded considerably and now has thousands of hotels worldwide. Best Western was once well known for its budget-friendly hotels but nowadays it offers a lot more with seven types of hotels ranging from beautifully-designed boutique hotels to family-friendly accommodation and well-organized business hotels.
Choosing a Best Western Hotel near Yosemite
There are several two- and three-star Best Western accommodation near Yosemite National Park. Try the towns of Sonora and Angels Camp to the east, Oakhurst and Mariposa to the south or Mammoth Lakes to the west, each with a Best Western inn, hotel or motel to base yourself as you explore the 1,200 square miles of national park land. Use Expedia to help you work out which place to stay is right for you based on your need for indoor or outdoor swimming pool, hot tub, restaurant, bar or gym in your hotel.
Visiting Yosemite from Your Best Western Hotel
If you’re keen on keeping your carbon footprint down, you could hop on the shuttle bus from Best Western hotels in Mariposa, Oakhurst and, in summer, Mammoth Lakes to take you into Yosemite National Park. Snow cuts Mammoth Lakes off from the Tioga Pass of Yosemite during winter, but can either enjoy miles of skiing and snowboarding in Mammoth or take a very scenic drive up to Yosemite Valley in a couple of hours. Yosemite Valley, where you’ll find the visitor centre, is packed with beautiful spots to visit. A 30-minute walk takes you to Yosemite Falls, and you can see some of the best views in the park from Glacier Point. Take time to visit Sentinel Bridge, Valley View, El Capitan Meadow and Tunnel View for some equally stunning vistas.
Choosing a room in one of the Yosemite National Park Best Western hotels places you very well to explore the vast park and great value facilities, so you can really unwind and enjoy your holiday.
