We should have trusted the reviews on TripAdvisor.com before booking, but it was too late. I was nervous prior to arriving since all the previous reviews were so bad about this place. Well, all the reviews were correct.
Stony Creek Lodge is by far the worst place I have ever stayed. We actually stayed 3 nights. My wife and I were disgusted and very frustrated, but what could we do. All the other places in the park were already booked.
The first night, the electricity went out for a few hours. Then there was no hot water for 24 hours. That meant taking cold showers.
This place would be okay if they only charged $50/night. Unfortunately, they charge around $140.
I have learned from my mistake. I hope I can help others by not making the same mistake I did.
