We arrived Monday afternoon, the government shut down at midnight. We were allowed to stay through Thursday afternoon if we had wished, but the park service had all of the "attractions" barricaded, so if we did stay, we would basically be confined to the valley floor unless we wanted to crash the barriers like they did in Washington at the Veteran's Memorial and since we weren't in a protesting mood, we made a Plan B and headed for San Francisco.
When we arrived at the lodge at 4 PM and asked for an early check-in, we were told the room was not ready. I knew better than this and since I knew what building we were going to be in, I did a little recon and discovered that house-keeping had already finished in that building. It's outrageous that check-in is that late in the afternoon anyway but why not release the rooms when they are ready?
The room was tiny and all of the electrical outlets were in disrepair. Plugs were falling out the outlets on their own accord the outlets were so worn. Out room was 3903 and it was the 2nd closest room out of the entire lodge to the central area with the foos and front desk, literally 10 yards but this was the luck of the draw.
