Spent 2 nights here after searching for almost all near affordable accommodations with attach bath near or inside the Yosemite. Camp Curry is a tent while Ahwahnee and Wawona with attach bath have steep prices. Wow. Well looks like nothing compares. There's 10 units inside this lodge. Unit no 1 to 6 are in twin-cabins. Unit no 7 to 10 are located inside a single building that also housed the manager office and the ice machine.
1.Affordable price in super expensive Yosemite (you know what set apart accommodation prices between Yosemite and Yellowstone)
2.We got cabin no 4 with LCD TV (who watch TV while in Yosemite?), minibar and a microwave.
3.Ice machine is located near the manager office and you can fill up your ice chest with it.
4.The pool is great.
5.Pretty quiet at night (after 10 PM, you hardly hear any traffic).
6.Big room with a couch and 2 big beds.
1.After returning on the 2nd day, the manager told us that the cleaning lady did not have the deadbolt key of our cabin so it was not made up (we didn’t see any cleaners in day 2 and 3).
2.We were also told that we can do our laundry free using the laundry room of the place. The laundry room is open 24hrs and you can pick fresh towels from there.
3.The place is located a bit up a hilly terrain and there's no fencing around the property. So it’s quite scary to walk around at night (who knows what might be lurking behind the bush?)
4.The drive to Yosemite valley from here is via a very winding road up the mountains (fit for F1 drivers). Speed limits are for the most part ignored here and aggressive drivers are abundant. It is not uncommon to be tailgated by big pickup trucks or SUVs if you are following the speed limits. This scares me the most (I come from country where most cars have 1 liter engine with astronomical gas price).
1.The flooring are tiles and was quite dusty (looks like not mopped up) and would left marks if you step it with wet feet.
Overall, this is the cheapest place to stay in summer with proper room and attached bath. The manager is a nice lady who would always recommend tips on Yosemite.
