Hi--I'm trying to make reservations for 2A/1CH for June 2013. Our plan is to spend 2 nights in San Francisco, 2 nights in Yosemite, 1 or 2 nights in Sequoia/Kings Canyon, then drive to the Los Angeles area for the remainder of our trip. I want to pay less than $250/night for a 2 Q or 2 DBL bed room (don't want a tent cabin & must have a private bathroom) and this is what I found--
Yosemite Lodge @ Falls for 1 NIGHT ONLY @ $228
Yosemite View Lodge (El Portal) @ $189/mt view or $229/river view
Cedar Lodge (El Portal) @ $212
Best Western Gateway (Oakhurst) @ $160
Any pros/cons? If we reserve YLodge--would 1 night (two 1/2 days) give us enough time to see the main areas of YNP? If we reserve YViewLodge--is the river view worth the $30/night extra? If we reserve the BW--how would we divide our time in YNP to limit backtracking?
