Whether your passion is hiking, fishing or relaxing, there is plenty to be had at or near this Best Western in Mariposa.
Situated in a park-like setting, there are seven excellent restaurants within walking distance, including fine dining options. Friendly staff members at our 24 hour front desk are happy to offer recommendations and tips to guests for their travels. From casual strolls, to fishing, to Zipline Adventure Ranch, there are hours of fun to be had for the entire family.
Visit Mariposa Grove or 3 other groves of the Giant Sequoias. Photographers especially enjoy the incredible bounty of Mother Nature that surrounds this Mariposa/Yosemite area.
