I was staying with a friend for 3 nights at the yosemite south gate hotel and I can recommend it. It has big clean rooms, a decent mattress and I am happy to say, that my room had no bed bugs (I always check for bed bugs these days). The hotel has a spa facility, which I did not use because I was too tired from hiking but it looked nice. Room 208, which we had, has a huge balcony, which is lovely for sitting outside with a glass of wine. As far as I could see, most rooms did not have a balcony. A tiny negative for this room is the location next to the ice machine, but I did not mind that, because I always sleep in Hotels with earplugs.
People have written quite a bit about the breakfast and I agree that the selection is not great. Also there is a bit of a problem with the seating, but we did not notice it that much because the hotel was not full due to the rim fire. Personally I would have preferred it if breakfast would not have been included (with a lower price for the rooms of course), but at least the waffles were very good.
The hotel is about 15-20 Minutes from the south entrance of Yosemite. It takes about 70-80 minutes to the Yosemite valley but this goes for pretty much all the hotels around Yosemite. Oakhurst has pretty much everything you need and is a nice little town.
