Its not easy this!
Curry Village is booked out, all the reasonable priced options anyway.
Looking like camping is a non runner now, so looking at other accommodation. Anybody familiar with Cedar Lodge / Yosemite View Lodge? Similar, EUR300 for 2 nights give or take. I'm confused about reviews on location, on all places, not just these 2. Somewhere might say 5 mins to the park, while another will say 30 mins to the centre of the park, I'm thinking anywhere claiming to be close to the park means the boundary, so you'll be further again before you're properly inside it or near the main attractions?
Have seen other places, some alright, some not great, so although as M5 said, i could take the chance on a cancellation, I don't want to miss out, then be in some crappy enough motel, i may as well be in one of the 2 i mentioned, which have pools, and the river, etc, as going to be there 2 nights.
Idbatterim - considered Tahoe but not happening i dont think now. San Fran - Napa - Yosemite - Vegas - Grand Canyon - San Diego - Santa Barbara.
