The other reviews are spot on, this place is dated and shabby, with nearly no amenities or charm. And its expensive too - not to mention the fact that they expect you to take out your own trash after paying $250 a night! But, the location alone is enough reason to stay here.
The condos are only around 20 minutes from tunnel view (with a stunning drive), and 30 minutes from the valley floor. And it is perfect for some of the great hikes around glacier point. If you can't get into Yosemite village, can't afford the overpriced luxury lodge and want no part of sleeping in a tent at Curry village, this is not a bad option. Wawona is good for seeing the Redwood groves, but one day is more than enough and its over an hour to the valley.
Despite my criticisms of the rooms, they do offer a clean, safe place to sleep, have full kitchens (which is good if you plan on long days/sunsets as many in-park restaurants are not open so late), and enough space. Mine had a Murphy bed which was surprisingly comfortable and a very nice sofa, as well as a grill on the porch. Forget wifi, even though they claim to have it - I got no signal at all. The bathroom was small and plain, but did have warm showers.
If I went back I would look into Yosemite village first, but if that were sold out I would return to Yosemite West.
