"Place to stay in Oakhurst"
The management and staff were so accommodating and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Near Yosemite and room is comfortable"
We had a nice stay and it's about 40 minutes driving to Yosimite. Hotel staff is nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel is OK but......"
Hotel is ok and staff are nice. The only complain I have is if you end up below guests who have heavy feet or with kids, you'll hear all the stomping on the from from above. Other than that, the hotel is conveniently located near grocery stores, restaurants, and fast food.Genuine Expedia guest review
The free breakfast is quite minimal given how much they charge for the room. The pillows were not that great. Other than that, I don't have too many complaints.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Large rooms, poor WiFi connectivity"
Our room was very large, clean, and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was adequate, although there was an insufficient number of tables, so many had to eat sitting in sofas in the lobby area. The coin laundry was also inadequate for a hotel of this size: there was only one washing machine and one dryer, so guests had to wait all evening to use […] the facility. The WiFi connectivity was not available both evenings we were there. We were able to connect only on one morning when most guests were away. The check in process was extremely slow, because only one clerk was available in the early evening when many guests were coming in. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"very clean and close to the park"
staff were friendly and with complimentary breakfast, surrounding you will find a lot of restaurants to choose from and less than 20 miles from the national park so it's convenienceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was perfect for what we wanted which was a hotel near Yosemite NP. The staff were very friendly. The hotel was near lots of restaurants for dinner. The room was fine, a bit dated for the cost but you pay for being near Yosemite. The Wi-Fi did not work so good. The morning complimentary breakfast was nice, just not a lot of options.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"All see sights"
Cleanliness of roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great staff, desperately needs update"
Pretty much everything about this hotel is in desperate need of an update. AC will keep you awake unless you're exhausted. Lighting in the rooms looks like it was bought from the same supplier as the local jail, incredibly harsh and old. Bathroom fans sound like leaf blowers at full blast. Oh, and wifi hasn't been working for weeks I'm told. Only […] redeeming feature was the staff who did everything they could with little they had to work with. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Everyone was so nice. We were driving in and Didn't get there till 1am. The man behind the counter checked us in quickly and got us a cart for our bags. Regular breakfast fare, and clean rooms. Close to Yosemite and little stores to get essentials. Also only a two hour drive to sequoia national park.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good price and location"
For the price, it is better than Wawona hotel. less expensive for better amenities with complimentary breakfast and no hassle to take out everything from the car. more choices of restaurant around too. will definitely stay here the next time we go to yosemite.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel and close to Yosemite south entrance."
It would be better if room floor carpet was little more clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good place to stay"
Staff was very friendly and efficient. Breakfast is good, but get to it early to avoid long lines for the waffle maker.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel is old and staff was rude and unhelpful"
Hotel is old and staff was rude and unhelpful, will not come again. The Best Western next door is much better!Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is run down. The fire alarm kept going off in our room. Pipes are visible from the ceiling. The house keeping staff is stingy with soap, shampoo, and pillows. The management needs to invest more money in house keeping staff and maintaining the building.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel near Yosemite"
Convenient location, clean rooms, good breakfast, good service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was perfect roomy, nice view, clean! Would stay here again!Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything was good. The hotel is very close to the south gate of Yosemite National Park. Make sure you fill up the tank at the gas station around the hotel. It takes about one hour to get to anywhere in the park from the hotel. So get up early.Genuine Expedia guest review
we enjoyed our stay. The breakfast was a little crowded, but very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"decent price and not too far from Yosemite"
The good: relatively close to Yosemite, very close to Bass Lake, decent price. The bad: long long waits at the reception counter, same at breakfast, staff kind of indifferent, internet wifi REALLY POORGenuine Hotels.com guest review
NIce stay in late June, 2014. Hotel is not fancy, but in good condition. Staff very friendly and helpful with tips about Yosemite. Room set up nicely with 2 sinks, separate from shower/toliet area--super nice when you have 5 people getting ready in the morning. Basic breakfast, no hot food other than waffles. It is only 15 minutes or so to the south […] entrance/Mariposa grove area, but at least an hour to Glacier Point, and 1 hr 20 min or more on very mountainous, winding roads to get to the valley. Plan accordingly, leave early (and bring Dramamine if you are motion sensative!). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything good, great location, good staff people, nice rooms, beautiful lobby.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Conveniently Priced, Great Service"
Yosemite Southgate was an immaculately maintained location with friendly staff, great breakfast, and comfortable beds. They are one of the less expensive hotels in the area, but I felt that my family received great ammenities, services, and rooms. There is one small complaint, and that is its location isn't entirely ideal for yosemite visitors. Expect […] to drive 30-45 minutes just to enter the park from oakhurst.

"Great location and horrible service!!"
I was shocked that at how rude the front desk staff was to me and other guests. I arrived early and was told to come back at 4. When I asked how to get to Yosemite the kid at the desk looked at me like I was an idiot and pointed at the road. Luckily there was a visitors center right across the street with wonderful people who guided us. When I returned […] to check in I was only given one key. I asked for a second one and the girl just walked away....the couple on the side of us asked about currency exchange and were told, "were not a bank." I could go on and on. The staff is horrible and they seem to hate tourists. The hotel was not bad. It was a little dated but clean, safe and large rooms. Management should find a few friendly people and this could be a great place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice could be better"
The problem I had is with the wifi service or lack of signal strength and speed.Other than that problem everything else was fine.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great family hotel"
We enjoyed three days at this hotel in two enormous rooms with our four kids. Great staff, place to do laundry which was needed after hiking in yosemite, and fun pool to cool off after long days.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to Yosemite"
lots of room, a washer and dryer was much needed. It is coin-operated and had to wait turn, but was so glad to finally wash. Comfy bed tooGenuine Expedia guest review
"stop and rest"
greeted by friendly staff who is informative about the amenities and nearby restaurants. breakfast is okay, missing the proteins, mainly carbs, nice at least to have some hard boiled eggs, appreciate the 24 hours of hot water and coffee and tea room is spacious and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Staying at Southgate Hotel in Oakhurst"
Stayed for one night at the hotel and had a great time. With the exception of a slow internet access everything was satisfactory.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel... Great location"
Located just outside the park... Room was big, clean and bed was comfortable. Hotel staff was very friendly. Wifi could have been better but it was included.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our stay was great, personable, friendly and helpful staff, except the room we stayed has a musty smell.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We spent one night The staff was very helpful. We wanted to change the room to more quiet one and immediately we got another roomGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good for Yosemite visit"
This was a nice hotel for the price compared to the lodges in the park that I looked at for our visit to Yosemite. if you are going to spend multiple days at the park, it may be worth it to splurge on a park stay or camp, but this hotel was a nice, short drive to the gate.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was large and very comfortable. Equipped with a sink and microwave. Breakfast is continental but Denny's is across the parking lot. Staff were very helpful. We were on a 6 week road trip staying at many places. Would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Will stay again."
Very clean, great staff looked after me. Large room and well prepared.Genuine Expedia guest review
Clean, large, quiet, comfortable room. Also they met my preference.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Bathroom door unable to close; worst breakfast with zero protein. Make sure you don't pay in advance through hotels.com: you will not be able to cancel any staying night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very good value but far from Yosemite Visitor Cent"
Overall, we liked this hotel. Our room was big with two queen size beds and the hotel was clean. It served a simple breakfast with bagels, muffins, fruit, coffee, juices, yogurt and make-your-own waffles. The service was excellent, but the distance from the park Visitor Center was about 1 and a half hours! At night, the road is long and windy. But it's […] close to gas stations, supermarkets, and restaurants. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Large comfortable room, convenient location"
The room was large, clean and comfortable. It's situated reasonably near Mariposa Grove. The internet was frustratingly slow. The breakfast is terrible. Dining options nearby are not great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pleasant, and handy for entrance into Yosemite Park. Staff helpful regarding times and distances.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Need a seating area"
They provide a skimpy breakfast, but no where to sit down. They should have a few tables and chairs. A sofa, loveseat and thats's it. Besides that, everything else is good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Was fine for what we needed."
For what we needed, the hotel was fine. We had 2 of us in a 2 bed queen room. The room was very, very large and would be perfect for a family to stay in. The room was outdated in regards to linens, furnishings, etc. I gave it a 3 because when I picked up the pillow, there was a large piece of hair on both sides of the pillow ( I have short hair)... […] and both the green blanket and sheets were wrinkled. The linens looked worn and made sure to kick off the blankets just in case. The hotel was quiet and there is a Denny's in the parking lot. We were there as a quick overnight after going to Yosemite and getting back kind of late. The pool area looked alright and the free breakfast was as "continental" as one would expect. Would we stay there again as a quick overnight to Yosemite? Yes. Would we choose that place again if something was in the same price range and better- no. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My family will stay here again :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reasonably OK hotel for 1 night"
It's a reasonably OK hotel for 1 night. Room is clean. Outdoor pool and Guest laundry are available. I have total 6 people including 2 9-yo kids, thought a family suite for 5 people would be enough, but hotel did not accept hence I had to pay additional $150 for the 2nd room which is a big surprise. Location is 26 miles from the valley which is inconvenient. […] Outdoor pool is only open from 9AM which is not good for the travelers wake up early but leave the hotel also early as indeed we are not coming for swimming at the hotel - should be open earlier so people can enjoy a bit from their busy schedule of visiting the national park.

"Reminded me more of motel"
The phone interaction was nice enough. The "in person" encounter was lacking. For $183.00 a night I really expected excellent customer service. I did not find out about the 20% Denny's discount until I overheard one of the counter people telling someone...and that only happened after the person asked if Denny's was open 24 hours. People there seemed […] to "have" to work there and not as thought they "wanted" to work there. The room decor is old, really more of a motel feel to it...I really could not see anyone staying there for more than one night, two at the very most. I will try another hotel the next time I am in Oakhurst on business. The continental breakfast is actually ok...there is just not a place to sit other than on lobby couches which do lend themselves to eating...unless you are really good at balancing a plate and coffee on your lap. Employees there had trouble making eye contact, thanking people, a smile would have been nice, opening doors for people who are carrying "stuff" as they approach the door...just the really simple things. I facilitate customer service classes...I would be willing to help the staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We only stayed one night, but was really pleased with the quality of the hotel, and the level of service from the staff. Great proximity to Yosemite's south gate (hence the name of the hotel) and Mariposa Grove. Convenient little town to eat a decent dinner, stock up on snacks at the local grocery store, and grab a quick Jamba Juice in the morning before […] a long day of hiking in Yosemite Valley. I knew it wasn't the Ritz Carlton going into it (nor should it should be), and it definitely exceeded my expectations. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Located close to Yosemite national Park"
Booked this hotel late when I had the urge to go visit Yosemite paying a much higher price than the hotel is worth but I can't blame them for that, everything is booked solid way ahead of time in this area this time of the year.Genuine Expedia guest review
A comfortable place to stay outside Yosemite. It's about 20 or 30 minutes to the park entrance and a bit over an hour to the valley. Groceries, restaurants, et al all nearby, and the rooms are perfectly comfortable. I'd definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in the area"
Even though its expensive, I think they are fair compared to other hotels in the area. Location was good. Breakfast was good. Clean rooms. Overall great experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Stayed one night on the road to Yosemite"
Overall a very good hotel. The front desk staff in particular were very good. We found some long black hairs in our bed which leads me to believe that the bedding had not been changed from a prior occupant. This we found after sleeping and we are both blondes. Not good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
