We stayed two nights while visiting Yosemite and everything was fantastic from check-in to check-out. Front desk is friendly, professional and helpful. This was the cleanest hotel we have stayed at in a long time! I am very picky when it comes to hotels and I will recommend staying here to everyone! Breakfast is continental but is a very good variety and there are muffins and fruit out if you leave early to drive into the Park. The bed is comfortable and our stay was quiet. Did I mention how great this hotel is? You will not be disappointed. Thank you to the Awesome Team at Yosemite Southgate! Read less

We spent three weeks in the US travelling. This was the second best hotel out of 13. Good space - overall well run. the breakfast could be improved. it is quite a way from Yosemite Valley which is reflected in the nightly rate but 1:30 hours drive each way along winding roads .....

Utterly disappointed, worst customer service ever. Reported broken shower tap to the front desk lady but no body showed to fix the issue. while checking out when I enquired about my request the same receptionist lady was extremely rude and so disrespectful while answering. She denied completely and lied that she never answered my phone complaint. A/C tripped issue every other hour. The lobby restroom (both) were dirty and full of garbage I mean I don’t know how come they have any star for this property. When I called the receptionist he said call me back as I am busy right now, I mean why would I call you back? I am providing you a room number and you are the one who is busy so it’s Hotel staff responsibility to call me back… I will not recommend this place to anyone My entire trip got ruined by this property and stay Read less

Great location to the south entrance of Yosemite NP. Once you get in the park, it's another 1 hour plus to the Yosemite Valley. Beautiful scenic vista's along the drive.

Great location to the south entrance of Yosemite NP. Once you get in the park, it's another 1 hour plus to the Yosemite Valley. Beautiful scenic vista's along the drive. Oakhurst is a great small town with plenty of amenities, i.e., grocery, restaurants, shopping. Hotel room was very clean and spacious with a very comfortable bed. Room included a refrigerator, microwave, and mini Kuerig. Breakfast was very basic and underwhelming. If you want a delicious breakfast, go to Bee's Bakery and Cafe in town! Emmanuel at the desk was super friendly and welcoming upon our arrival. Read less

May 4, 2024 Paula T Romsey, United Kingdom

The hotel was ideally situated for visiting Yosemite. The room was large and clean with very comfortable beds. Our one complaint was the breakfast which used paper plates ,cups and single use plastics. We stayed for 4 nights and the breakfast offerings were the same each morning. This let a very nice hotel down.
