Ivan: Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are thrilled that you loved your renovated guest suite. Our staff loves what they do, and happy guests are their focus. Our breakfast is continental and offers a little something for everyone (because sightseeing isn't as much fun on an empty stomach.) For heartier full-breakfasts, there is a restaurant on site. We'd love to host you again if you come back to Yosemite. Remember to book your stay at YosemiteSouthgate.com where you will always find the lowest rates anywhere online, and use the promo code: tripadvisor to save even more! Thanks for Staying at The Southgate, Raj Owner Yosemite Southgate Hotel

This is one of the best-run hotels in hospitality industry, where you are saving $20 - $50 per night on not paying a part of their franchise fee...of which they have none. A beautiful, solid, highly-professional operation!

It will take about 35-40 minutes to drive to Mariposa Grove (the first and immediate attraction in Yosemite from the south entrance). Plenty of parking there but may be very busy in June of course. Another 40 minutes drive to the Valley floor - always busy there because of eating places (very poor ones I might add). Glacier Point lies between the two places but will require you to turn off the main road about 15-20 minutes after Mariposa. Denny's usually open quite early but the Southgate offers a free breakfast.

If you are visiting on the weekend, plan to use the YARTS bus or one of the tour companies based in Oakhurst. Single car traffic into the valley backs up causing long delays and pollution in the valley. I recommend bussing in, ride the hop on/hop off shuttle around the valley, then bus back to Oakhurst.
