We lucked into a room on the top floor the night of July 4. The room was better than average, with plush bedding and a decent TV (but no HBO). My chief complaint would be the rattling air conditioner, and eventually I just shut it off and opened the sliding door (although then there were people on the lawn talking until 1 AM). The hotel has a private beach from which we watched the fireworks, and a decent pool and hot tub. I felt sorry for the 80,000 day trippers who were trying to get off the mountain that night down a two lane road - good luck!
One strange thing is the highly variable pricing. We'd been told a second night would cost $300, so we packed up and were checking out when the front desk person said the room was now $149! I also didn't believe her when she said the hotel sells out for July 4 every year shortly after the previous July 4, it sounded like a sales pitch. After all, we got a last minute room.
