We took a 4 day trip to Yosemite during the Labor Day weekend and wanted a place to stay for one night as we headed back home. The hotel doesn't look like much from the outside but has a surprisingly attractive lobby area. Our room was spacious and clean. We had a king bed with a pull out queen sofa bed. The sofa bed was EXTREMELY uncomfortable and […] two of us ended up sleeping on the floor instead. We were looking forward to getting into the spa to soothe our muscles.after much hiking, unfortunately the spa is very small and crowded and the water temperature was nowhere near hot and more like tepid bath water. We were happy to find out that the hotel has a steam room and sauna and both were working at not crowded. The staff was friendly. There are a variety of places to eat in close proximity.

"Big room, comfy beds, forgetable hotel&location"
I stayed here during my first visit to Yosemite and I wasn't thrilled. There is nothing wrong with the hotel, but also nothing special: staff is friendly, beds are comfortable, rooms are huge (although our had some humidity smell), installations are old, breakfast is included but nothing to look for in the morning. Location wasn't great either. Oakhurst […] is a small town with a few shops and restaurants, which are decent but not exciting, and it takes more than 30min drive to get from there to the entrance of the park. Considering that we already had to drive from/to San Francisco, and that visiting Yosemite includes quite some driving inside the park, to drive to/from the hotel was annoying. If I go back I'll try to stay inside the park. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Had a very comfortable stay. Rooms clean,plenty of clean towels and nice comfy bed. Didnt use the breakfast....too crowded and I need protein in the am! Could use new carpeting is the only negative comment.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

the staff was very pleasant, and we had a nice stay for 2 days and breakfast was good. ,We would stay their again and recommend this hotel to our friendsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Security deposit was $100 per room . Way too highGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel caters to the tour buses so be prepared. The breakfast is low on fruit, there are two waffle makers and several juice-drinks .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst customer service ever received"
I booked the hotel for my wife thru Hotels.com. I got a call from my wife the day she and kids were supposed to check in. My wife said that hotel clerk would not allow her to check in because reservation was booked under my name and her name was not listed under "guest " Hotel clerk refused to talk to me and demanded to contact hotels.com and change […] booking info. My wife even presented insurance card to show that she and I are spouses. When asked for Supervisor, they said he/she is not there. After spending good 30 minutes., my wifewan and kids were allowed to check in No apologizes from hotel staff. For God sake, they could have call me to confirm if I booked hotel or they could contact hotels.com But they did not want lift their fingers at all.. Bad and rude and obnoxious attitiude NEVER WILL STAY Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room -good size and clean-Bathroom smelled mildewy"
We had a nice stay. Kids liked pool and waffles at breakfast. I used the itty bitty health club. Luckily, I got their one elliptical. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There are about 3-4 restaurants very close to restaurant, which seemed like a much bigger town than the Northgare side of park. You are about 30-40 minutes from park gate.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Yosemite"
Great services. Breakfast can improve.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel near Yosemite south gate"
Stayed only one night so could not explore all that this hotel offers. But seemed pretty nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Spacious room with ample free parking"
Room was very spacious with more than sufficient drawer/closet space. It was nice to have the sink outside the bathroom, so that it is convenient when you have a family staying in the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"satisfactory-great location mediocre breakfast"
Clean, but no sheets or blankets on pullout sofa. Excellent location, but continental breakfast was lacking for the type of hotel it presents as.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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

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
