Lovely building and grounds, great staff they could not have been more accommodating and very large welcoming rooms. When we next visit Yosemite we will be staying here. It's also quite well situated for going into Yosemite via south gate. Great value for money. Completely recommend.

Stayed here for one night. The site of the hotel is convenient in our stay-over whilst visiting the nearby park which is only just up the road. The staff were absolutely charming. The room was spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable. A great pool is also available. The breakfast space and choice is a bit limited but there... More

Pros: The hotel is a good solution to visit Yosemite (it is located 20 minutes to the access to the park, however there is more road to do to see the main attractions); rooms are big and the king bed is very comfortable. Wifi worked well. Cons: the furniture should be renewed - it is quite old. For breakfast they... More

Nicely appointed and conveniently located on the road to the Park. Staff was generally warm and helpful with just one hiccup at check-in related to my service dog. Free breakfast was pretty basic (bread & small pastries, hard-boiled eggs, juice and coffee machines, small yogurt cups).

We had a very comfortable and well appointed room. There is a small reception and breakfast room and they offer complimentary coffee all day. There is also a nice pool outside. In the morning the breakfast room was crowded so we ate at Denny's which is about 20 yards away. They give a 10% discount if you show your hotel... More

We had a spacious room with pleasant decor and good temperature control (important in the summer). We used the large minifridge with freezer, and there was also a microwave. The bed and furniture were comfortable, but the floors were squeaky. We appreciated having two sinks outside of the bathroom. The wifi was very poor--almost useless. Also,we tried calling the front... More

After a day at the park, we arrived to friendly staff and an incredible room! It was large with a vanity, sofa, and bar area. The pool was nice to cool off in and the hot tub soothed the aching muscles. We also enjoyed dinner recommended at Southgate Brewery! Breakfast was fine to get us started on our next journey....

I realize that when you're looking for a place to stay near an entrance to Yosemite in the summer, you're in a seller's market, but this place really takes advantage. It's expensive for what it offers, it's not well maintained, the so-called free Wi-Fi is useless, so-called free breakfast is so over subscribed by guests that you can't even squeeze... More

Barbara: I wanted to show you that we're listening. I appreciate that you stayed with us at The Southgate and left us a candid review. I recognize that rates might appear high, but during the Summer, rates are high everywhere. Our hotel actually provides one of the best deals around--our rooms are larger than the competition. We have a pool,... More

The room was fine the customer service was rude and condescending. The pool looked dirty we didn't bother with it. The continental breakfast was OK. The location is their best selling point, not too far from the park and several decent dining locations nearby.
