Spacious room, comfortable sofa bed

Posted Jan 6, 2018
Pros: Spacious and comfortable room. Hotel staffs are friendly and helpful.
Location: Yosemite National Park
We have 7 people in 2 rooms. Each room has a king bed and a sofa bed. The sofa bed has different structure than the ones used in most other hotels. It is very sturdy and comfort. Even with the sofa bed stretched out, the room is still spacious. On the same street, walking a few steps away, there are a lot of restaurants, bars and stores. It is about 45 minutes driving (winded route) to the attractions at Yosemite National Park. We were there for New Year Eve and New Year Day. There is no snow so far this season so the driving was pretty easy with our rental minivan.

Newly renovated

Posted Dec 6, 2017
Really like the newly renovated hotel. What I really like, are the floors in the room. It's not carpet anymore. The environment is fresh and clean. Definitely recommended!

Hi Caroline: Thanks for the awesome review! It sounds like you stayed in one of our newly renovated ground floor rooms. As you mentioned, the ground floor rooms no longer have carpet; we opted for laminate. However, the upper level rooms still have carpet passed the tiled entry. And during this first week of 2018, the reno continues as we are installed brand new furniture throughout the remodeled guestroom. It sounds like you have stayed with us before, and we can't wait to see you again! Best regards, Brandon Associate General Manager

Family vacation to Yosemite.

Posted Nov 27, 2017
Pros: Room Size.
Cons: The microwave in the room was very old.
Location: Tenaya Lodge is very close by, about 15 mins drive from the hotel and it's very beautiful.
We stayed here for 3 nights, rooms are large, we were 5 of us. We had to pay $25 per night extra for an extra child. They did provide us an additional roll on bed and space was very comfortable, there is a Denny's within the property which is very helpful. Oakhurst is a small town about 16 miles from the South entrance to Yosemite National Park. It takes about 1.5 hours to reach Yosemite Valley from this hotel. Overall the stay was very comfortable, staff was very cooperative.

Hi there Assadullah: I would like to take a moment to clarify a few of our charges. We do not charge $25 for extra children. Standard rates at our property include a double occupancy. One of your children was above 12 years of age, though was not accounted for on your original booking, which is the reason for part of the additional fee at check in. The room you booked offered one king bed and a sofa bed. You opted for an addition/rollaway bed at check-in, which we offer at $15/night due to a limited supply. That aside, we are glad that you found our property and staff accommodating. We strive to provide our best customer service at all times, and are glad to have made such an impression with you. We wish you the best and hope to see you back in Yosemite very soon. Best regards, Brandon Associate General Manager

Comfortable stay

Posted Nov 25, 2017
Staff were quite friendly and helpful. Wish continental breakfast was just alittle hardier but all and all fine - you could go to the Dennys in front if hotel is you want more.

Hi Chery: Thanks for staying with us at Yosemite Southgate Hotel and Suites! We are very much a seasonal business in the sense that winter months are slow in comparison to summer months. As such, we do have make a few cutbacks during the slow time. During summer, breakfast does contain some additional items, such as hard boiled eggs, additional fruits, etc. The Denny's located in the corner of our parking lot is also taken into consideration because many guests wish to start their day with a meal accompanied by table service.

Overall excellent experience. The thermostat in the room was difficult to figure out and the continental breakfast is subpar. I'd still recommend though.
