We landed at the Cedar Lodge by fate. We had originally planned on staying in a yurt at a campground near the 120 entrance to the park, but the fire burned it down and closed 120, so we decided to just drive 140 and see what we could find, which led us to the cedar lodge.
Price was fantastic ($100/night) although we were there during the fire, after labor day and during the mid-week...I hear it runs up to $250 during peak season. Room was large and clean, and had a fridge and outdoor porch. Another odd feature, was a 2 person shower and jet tub. We laughed about it at first, but loved it after 12 hours of hikng through the dusty park and both got to clean up at the same time.
Bottom line, is this a 4 or 5 star hotel? No, but neither is anything else around Yosemite...This is actually on the higher end of hotels we checked out in the area, and a solid 3 in my book, and location is 10 minutes from the park entrance. Check out my pics, we thought it was great for the price
