Yosemite Hotels Give Gas Rebates to RoadTrippers

As gas prices continue to rise, many businesses throughout Madera County, California’s Gateway to Yosemite National Park, are offering discounts aimed at taking the sting out of filling up to go on vacation.

“Many hotels and attractions know that families still want to take trips, but are looking at ways of doing so without impacting the family budget,” reports Jarrod Lyman with the Yosemite Sierra Visitors Bureau. “These incentives, when combined with the central location of Madera County, make the region very attractive for vacation seekers.”

Yosemite National Park is a family favorite road trip destination in northern California. Local families know there are ways to save by staying a bit outside the park, and driving in to enjoy the many national park sponsored summer activities and events.

This summer, there are discounts at several popular hotels. The Madera Valley Inn in Madera, known as the historic gateway for Yosemite National Park, is a perfect spot for day tripping to Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. They are offering a $25 gift card redeemable at numerous businesses including gas stations with any three night stay.

Even smaller properties are offering discounts. The Yosemite Sierra View B&B in Oakhurst is offering a $10 travel incentive for any two night stay, as is the Sierra Mountain Lodge bed and breakfast in Ahwahnee.

Others, like the Springhill Suites by Marriott in Madera are going all out, offering the “Cars Eat Free” package. Stay with Springhill Suites by Marriott, Madera any day between June 1, - August 31, 2011 and your stay will include a $25 “gas” card redeemable at any station accepting the visa logo.  Package is priced at $134night mid-week and $114/night on weekends.   A $25 gift card is earned for every night stay you book.

“It’s the perfect way to explore Yosemite and the surrounding area,” adds Lyman. “By saving money on gas, families can see more of the waterfalls in Yosemite, take a train ride aboard the Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Rail Road enjoy Bass Lake, tour the Madera Wine Trail or explore the Fossil Discovery Center in Chowchilla.”
