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.

My husband and i received a coupon for the Southgate hotel when we visited the information center across the street. We decided the deal was too good to not check out, especially after researching local rates. We were happily surprised. The front desk staff were extremely nice and helpful. Our room was large, clean, and the bed was very comfortable.... More

After researching stays inside Yosemite I realized the only reasonable priced hotels are outside the park, with Oakhurst being the closest to the South entrance to the park. Note that drive from here to the center of Yosemite will be 1.5 hours without traffic. Hotel room was larger than normal, nice in-room amenities, pool, spa and daily breakfast were good... More

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.
