1st - The Good... The setting of the hotel is lovely. The golf course is a very nice touch. The food at the dining room was very good, both breakfast and dinner. Coyotes and 3 large buck deer outside the room.
Now the Bad... The hotel was built in the 1800's. We assume electricity was added in the 20's or 30's. It hasn't been updated since. No T.V.'s, no Blowdryer use. Wooden floors that transmit sound from 10 rooms away. Tiny 1" sq tile in the very tiny bathroom. Sink was approx 1.5' in diam, with barely enough room to put a glass or razor. A 'quaint' claw foot bathtub with a shower curtain that sucked tight to the body when water was turned on. Paint peeling from the ceilings. We could hear everything our neighbors said or did. The metal pipe heater unit on the wall would start making very LOUD noise as soon as the 1st shower was started in the morning. Sounded like someone banging under the building with a sledge at 6:00am... And the worst thing, the hotel is 30+ miles from the Yosemite Valley over an unreal mountain drive. Being from Florida and having stayed in numerous 4 and 5 star hotels around the world I was appalled that our National Park system would have the audacity to charge $180.00 plus Calif tax for a room that you could find on any roadside in any seedy part of any small town for no more than $40.00 a night. Terrible!!!
