This hotel was excellent. The staffs allowed us to check in early before heading to Yosemite. The room was nice and big with microwave, sink, refrigerator, and coffee maker. The bed was comfortable including the sofa bed. They also have a gym, indoor sauna and steam room. They have a pool outdoors and jacuzzi which is closed in the winter.

Nice hotel, very friendly and helpful staff, very spacious rooms. The hotel is clean, the breakfast is OK. Lots of restaurants and shops close-by. Great location for visitors of the Yosemite National Park. The only complaint is that the intermediate floor/ceiling was not sound-proof and the people in the room above ours were making a lot of noise during the...

First hotel on our two week long road trip for which I have no complaints. Room was big and clean. Location was close to the Park. Service was friendly. The only thing is that the continental breakfast was a little bare. Would 100% stay again.

The rooms are standard and nicely appointed. We got the king suite and it was very comfortable. The staff is amazing. The night porter, who I believe was Gretchen, was so helpful and very awake at 1 am when we checked in. She was full of information and suggestions for our visit to Yosemite National Park. The continental breakfast is...

Very good value for money, we expected a basic motel but it was much better. Big room, fridge and microwave, gym, sauna, spa available, excellent wifi and free continental breakfast. I would go again without any hesitation for our next trip to yosemite.

With no real plans , we were off to Fresno for business followed by some fun at Yosemite. Worked all day in Fresno and headed toward the south gate of the park on 41 north. We reached Oakhurst and drove in to the Yosemite South Gate motel. Welcoming and with vacancies we checked in, were offered a 2 queen bed...

More three and a half stars than just the three, but just not completely a four star experience, the Southgate Hotel and Suites is a good choice for everyone visiting Yosemite and going via the south entrance. The drive to the park entrance is easy and no more than twenty minutes. Oakhurst as a town has few memorable things to...

On the way here, we checked in to the hotel next door. As soon as i seen this hotel i thought to myself why didn't i choose this particular one? When we called them we booked a room for the same price and better and friendly customer service. They also had a wonderful steam room which was my first time...

One of the most expensive hotels and our last on our 2 week 4000 mile road trip and definitely one of the best. 2 queen beds with enough space to put 4 and another single. Good coffee, kitchen sink, microwave, fridge. plus a bathroom sink. Good size bottles of soap, not the typical tiny bottles that could Bearley wash an...

My husband and I got a late mid-week deal for a great price as part of our California road trip. We were using the Southgate as a base to explore Yosemite. We have stayed in a number of similar places but Southgate offered the best value for money out of all the places we have stayed. We were pleasantly surprised...
