Amanda the Hotel Manager was very helpful when Expedia's 3rd party didn't properly book the reservation. She gave us an upgrade and let us check in at 9am while the normal check in time is 4pm. This was extremely helpful since we were traveling with our 2 newborn twins. When we got back from visiting ...

We only stayed one night because we were on a road trip. But I wish we could have stayed longer! What fantastic room! Of the many hotels we stayed at during our road trip (including Vegas and San Fran), this was by far the best. We had no idea our room would have a HUGE jetted tub! Great surprise! ...

Pocket Guides: Independent Hotels in Yosemite National Park

There are over 100 independent hotels in and around Yosemite National Park, so whatever your requirements you’re likely to find an independent hotel that suits you. Most of the major towns and villages close to the park offer independent accommodation.

Independent Hotels near Yosemite

You’ll find independent Yosemite accommodation in both rural and town locations. Choose a small inn in the country with a pretty garden and a homely atmosphere, or a historic hotel in the heart of Jamestown, a former Gold Rush hotspot with some excellent local museums. Looking for something bigger? Look out for spacious independent resorts that offer extensive landscaped grounds and masses of leisure facilities, from spas and pools to on-site restaurants.

Getting Around Yosemite National Park

If you have your own transport, exploring Yosemite is easy – but even if you don’t, there are good local bus services that will take you straight to Yosemite Village. Most visitors start from here. It’s home to the Yosemite visitor centre and is a good gateway to the iconic sights of Yosemite Valley, including Yosemite Falls, El Capitan and the Glacier Point lookout station. In the summer months, free shuttles from Yosemite Village will take you to some of the most popular attractions.

Easy Hikes: Exploring Yosemite on Foot

Hiking is one of the best ways to explore Yosemite, and there are over 800 miles of trails to explore. You don’t have to be a hardened hiker to get involved – popular easy routes include the trail to Yosemite Falls, North America’s tallest waterfall. The loop trail to Lower Yosemite Fall from Yosemite Village takes around 30 minutes and is mostly flat.

Yosemite Shopping: From Souvenirs to Local Art

If you appreciate the personal touch of an independent hotel, you’ll also enjoy browsing some of the small independent shops in Yosemite’s towns and villages. Look out for local art galleries in Mariposa and Oakhurst, and a wide range of souvenir and craft shops in Yosemite Village itself.

There’s so much to see and do in Yosemite National Park. Choose one of Yosemite’s independent hotels for a comfortable base with a distinct local flavour.
