Where do I begin..... Definitely not worth the four stars from TripAdvisor. Let's begin with the bed that could use a mattress pad... or three. The bed is so hard that both my hubby and I have been walking around for two days stealing the ibprofen bottle from each other. Next would be the hot tub, or rather the cool... More

Friendly service and rooms were large. Free parking and nice swimming pool. Breakfast was good with plenty to choose from. About 20 minutes to the south entrance to Yosemite. But about an hour to the valley of Yosemite. Windy roads with high speed limits in some areas, so be careful driving this road. If we visited again, I'd try to... More

I had a very pleasant experience staying at this hotel. I read reviews to see if early check-in was possible and noticed the only reviews left about it mentioned that they weren't allowed early check-in and the hotel was super strict about it. I made me wonder if they even bothered calling a day ahead of time to ask for... More

+ free park for the car; swimming pool - the room was old and had a bad smell; the breakfast was in the lobby with the guests bumping each other trying to reach the food. There were trays to take the food to a dinning room that we didn't use because we aet in the room. We have been 19... More

The hotel looks nice when you arrive, however some small problems accumulated and caused us to leave the hotel with an unsatisfied feeling: Breakfast: a small buffet is offered in a small side area of the lobby, then you take your stuff to a dinning room which was so small that a big part of the guests took their food...

Henry: I wanted to take the time to address your grievances and apologize that you had such a poor stay at The Southgate. Our rooms are the largest in the area and are set up as mini suites where the sink and vanity is part of the room so we're sorry if you found that to be unusual, but we... More

We had very little expectations from this hotel as our travel agent had informed us that Yosemite has very limited and overpriced accommodation. Therefore, We were pleasantly surprised to have such a spacious comfortable room with a massive bed and complementary breakfast. It's in a great location for exploring the national park and little gems like bass lake and cedar... More

The hotel has a old smell, and the décor is in need of an update. The towels are so old that they rip when you try to dry yourself with them. The spa is just warm not hot. The pillows are worn and uncomfortable. The only thing new in the rooms are the tolletteries and tv. For $300 a night,... More

This was the worst hotel of our whole trip around California and Nevada. And it was one of the most expensive we stayed in a $200 for one night. Ok the location close to Yosemite can account for the price to some extent, but the room was poor, tired, outdated and frankly smelled funny, mainly the air con, which we... More

I suppose being close to the amazing Yosemite means you can cut a few corners - like looking after your guests. Firstly this is a decent, basic hotel with great rooms and nice little extras in the form of the little pool area and self-service breakfast, which was did the job. 20-30 mins from south entrance depending on traffic and...
