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

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... More

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... More

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... More

After a week hiking and traveling about Yosemite this was a nice place to end up. Other lodging this week had been acceptable but Southgate was a step above. It's kind of far from the main hot spots for the park. Wouldn't want to make the trek back and forth to the Valley each day. Complimentary breakfast was a little... More

In need of major refreshing, with smelly carpet both in the room and allways. However, clean and functional for the purpose (a night of sleep on the way to Yosemite). Decent value considered the location.

We drove here from the Fresno airport and spent four nights while visiting Yosemite National Park. Our rooms were on the first floor with sliding glass door access to the pool area, where we spent our evenings after each day's sightseeing.
