It’s a really good base for Yosemite and would have warranted a 5 star review but for unfortunate incident at check out where I was accused of having had dogs in our room and thus I was to be liable for a pretty substantial cleaning bill. I assured hotel that we were wholly innocent but was told there was video footage. I asked that this be reviewed before we left and thankfully another member of hotel staff recognised that offence was committed by people occupying room opposite ours. Not much of an apology received (in fact none).

But the hotel apart from that was really good. We had a really comfortable room with a large balcony overlooking mountains. The hotel facilities were good with a small swimming pool and a laundrette facility and everyone up to checkout friendly and helpful.

Okehurst itself isn’t especially lovely though there are some decent places to eat nearby (Southgate brewing company really good) but the point is to spend most of any day spent here in Yosemite, which is truly one of the most beautiful places on earth.

This hotel has large rooms with comfortable beds. The room has two sinks with mirrors one in the bathroom. This is great for families trying to get ready in the morning or night. You have a large desk if you need to work and great wifi. The bathroom had plenty room to put your toiletries, towels and clothes as you bathe, wonderful! There is also a dressing table, it is just so spacious. It is a great place to be your base camp for Yosemite as we paid more than double for the cabin in Yosemite park. The staff was efficient and friendly. Everything was great we really enjoyed our stay. The drive was not that bad, little long but not that bad for the price. I got a good deal online booking with the hotel several months ahead. We are a family of three, seniors with a 23 year old son.

Could not fault this hotel. Good size room with refrigerator and elevator access if required. The included breakfast was basic but adequate. Yosemite about 30 minutes drive away and lots of restaurants within a short walk or drive.

Thank you for the PERFECT SCORE REVIEW!! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel. Our breakfast is continental and offers a little something for everyone (because sightseeing isn't as much fun on an empty stomach.) For heartier full-breakfasts, there is a restaurant on site. We'd love to host you again if you come back to Yosemite

Make sure to book direct at YosemiteSouthgate.com for the lowest rates available. When you're here next time, check out our hot tub, pool, and sauna. See you soon!

Great friendly staff, clean rooms, nice lobby, excellent clean pool, spa or hot tub next to pool is perfect! Priced right, and next to Denny's. Family environment, and accommodating culture. Will definitely go again if it has rooms available.
