The Southgate is a case of you get what you pay for--sort of. Its strong points are it is very close to the south entrance to Yosemite (about 20 minutes), the staff is pleasant and helpful and the rooms are large and have lots of amenities. The furniture is neither good nor bad--and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast, well, the... More

Overall, our family thought this place was fine. We stayed 3 nights for a weekend getaway to visit Yosemite. We went on a tour of Yosemite one day which picked us up at the hotel, and we went horseback riding the next, which was about 30 minutes away. We rented two mini suites (one for the kids and one for... More

My party and I chose this hotel because it was budget-friendly and had good reviews. We were not impressed by any means, in-fact, I would have rather paid a little extra to have a better hotel. 3 key points about this hotel and my experience: 1- Upon entering the room, it smelled very musty, the carpets were stained and looked...

Stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Yosemite each day. About 1 1/2 hour drive to get to anything in Yosemite. Despite the high prices within the park, I would stay somewhere IN the park next time. Daytime desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. Our room was large and there were 3 adults in our group. I liked that... More

I stayed while they were doing construction which was no problem being they were not working at night while you were in the room ( they worked during the day while you were out sight seeing) and as far as windows being covered in plastic who cares the blinds were closed at night ! The staff was great made dinner... More

Check in friendly and quick. Elevator (the only one in town) very slow. Room clean and bed comfortable. Continental breakfast that you can eat in breakfast room or take up to your room. Walking distance to eating places and shops. Great base location for Yosemite.

Reasonably priced, very nice hotel in a great location, situated just a couple miles from the entrance to Yosemite Park. Hotel is quiet, with large rooms, and 24 hour Denny's is right on the property! I booked it at the last minute and Amber was extremely helpful. I also forgot my phone charger when I left, and the hotel graciously... More

George: By George! You hit the nail on the head! Your review is awesome because not only is it a perfect score review but it highlights exactly what we are trying to achieve at The Southgate. We are positioning our hotel to be the best value stay right outside Yosemite National Park. We are the only interior corridor hotel with... More

We arrived on a recent Friday afternoon and got our room immediately. As others have said, it was large and clean. There was work going on outside our room, but not a problem since it ended before we returned from dinner. On Saturday morning my wife wasn't feeling well and wanted to sleep in for a while. At 9am the... More

Dear Guest: I wanted to apologize for your poor stay because of the recent construction work we had going on at The Southgate. We just completed redoing the entire exterior of our hotel and our hotel looks fantastic now from the outside, but clearly it took alot of work to do this and I am so sorry that the construction...

Very rarely do I write hotel reviews as I am in the events business and stay at more hotels than most people will in their lifetime.. but this I have to do. We booked directly with their website. It looked great and maybe it would have been if the owners of this hotel believed in being honest. When we got... More

Well taken care of hotel. Rooms were huge and very clean. Great location with lots of dining options around. Great place to start excursion into Yosemite. Frond desk was very helpful with park tips and a wine bottle opener for my wife.
