Not luxury, but all lodging in Oakhurst seems to be of more or less the same basic quality. We appreciated friendly personell and free basic breakfast. We enjoyed the small town feeling of Oakhurst with some restaurants and a great microbrewery "Southgate". Still, close to the south entrance of Yosemite.

Despite being a little over an hour from Yosemite Valley, the hotel was worth it. Great hospitality and service from staff, room was great (despite a few wrinkles in the carpet!), and the amenities were pleasurable. Not only did they have a pool and hot tub, they also had a weight room, steam room, and dry sauna free to use!... More

Close to the South gate Yosemite(about 30 min drive time to the entrance). Keep in mind that from the park entrance you still have about an hour drive to the park village area, and the entire drive is snake loops. We chose this hotel because of its relative close proximity. Any closer and we would have to artsy in the... More

We booked this hotel within 2 weeks of our travel. Very few places have openings then. Considering the price we paid, we were pleasantly surprised at the spaciousness and comfort of the rooms were booked for our friends and us. The staffs were very pleasant and helpful. The reception area was modern looking and clean. The location of the hotel... More

The reasons I chose this hotel were the positive reviews and the fact it had interior corridors which I felt was important because I traveled alone this trip. The original name of the hotel was the Shilo Inn so I new the location was very central in Oakhurst. The room was impeccable, however there were no laundry bags or kleenex... More

Handy for South gate Yosemite, this is why we chose this Hotel. Our room was large & clean & the breakfast was ok. We had a room on the ground floor, &, like others have said, the person above us seemed to walk around the bedroom a lot of the night, the floor boards creaking. If we stayed again i... More

We stayed in this hotel while in vacation and for some reason after a month with my reservation booked the "had a problem with my credit card".

Unfortunately we were very surprised to see such a welcome. When we entered the hotel, the man at the desk suddenly shout as there were no available room without asking us if we have reservations or not. He even didnt say anything for a welcome. Unfortanetly Very rude.

We stayed in the Southgate in early June. I found it online and thought it looked OK. The reviews here were OK, so we booked. It is not the fanciest of places. But it does the job. The room was clean and the staff was nice. There were cute restaurants close by (Di Ccio's). Again, not the fanciest of places,... More

This is very close to south gate of Yosemite thus location was a big factor why we chose this hotel. They are undergoing renovation thus the front desk and breakfast area were a little bit of a mess also we got a room in a corner and couldn't connect to wifi at all (thus dropping one star for it )...
