We had a very unfortunate visit that seems to be getting more unpleasant: Our car was essentially totalled by a bear; management was indifferent and the young blonde woman at the front desk seemed to be smirking about our misfortune.
The shortest version is that we are aware that bears can be a problem IN YOSEMITE-- but had no idea that the problem was as extensive or had spread well beyond park boundaries.
One window was ripped out and all four doors had to be replaced.
The maintainance crew was great, helping us patch our car together to get back over the mountain but also told us that the bears at this time of year were voracious, fattening up prior to hibernation and had damaged another car the week prior.
Thanks for the heads up--NOT!
There was a sign--about 8x10--that was NOT especially noticeable. (Could they maybe make it smaller?)
The owners reaction--days later 'the other people who's cars were damaged took responsibility'. . . .to which I responded 'other people, why didn't your staff warn us of the imminent danger?" --her response was essentially "Tough luck" (and --hey--thanks for the timely call back).
Upon my request she did commit to 'making a better effort of warning customers of severity of the bear problem in the area'
We won't ever be back nor will we encourage our friends to visit.
