As soon as we checked in we knew this place was good. Lovely lady on reception who gave us advice on Yosemite and where to go (official Yosemite visitor centre is right opposite as well!). We then went to our room which was fantastic. A huge room with sitting area, large bed, kitchen area, spacious bathroom, flat screen TV and... More

Everything is nice. Nice room, big and comfortable, clean bedding, refrigerator, and microwave. The wifi speed is also ok. The surprise was the free sauna. Love it. The price is great for the value. Another good thing is the shopping center next to it. We bought fruits before going into the Yosemite.

We only stayed here 2 nights but we were impressed with the hotel. It isn't a huge place but there are decent enough facilities and the rooms were surprisingly big. Nice comfy king bed, quiet room (we faced the back rather than the road), extra sofa area, modern TV, nice little kitchenette and fridge. The pool was cold but there... More

We stayed only over night at this hotel, but the experience was nice enough that if we ever get back in that area, we will stay there again. The room was clean, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast was amazing. It had waffles! I have a thing for waffles. It was actually the first non-cold... More

Phoned on our way to the hotel and Brandon was very helpful on which route was best to take to get to the hotel. We arrived earlier than expected and the girl at the front desk told us and another customer the rooms weren't ready as people were just checking out, this was at 2 pm. Not a problem as... More

Visited with family and friends, Location of the hotel is good, little far from the Yosemite valley to my liking. Staff is very good and helpful, Rooms are specious. Its a value for money hotel. Only disappointment was the wifi, it was very slow.

I stayed Yosemite Southgate Hotel in March 28-29, 2015 with my friend. At that time, Ms. Carolyn Quitter, your hotel’s staff, helped us to jump our car. I really appreciate her helpfulness and friendliness. When we left hotel, suddenly, my battery of my car did not work. We asked her about car battery, and she helped us quickly. She drove... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we got here. We didn't expect it to be so roomy and nice given the price point. We had a comfortable stay and would definitely recommend this hotel. Convenient location, too, near the south entrance of the park and close to restaurants like Denny's, etc.
