Disliked: Staff & service
We spent 3 nights while visiting Yosemite Park. The accommodation did its job. It was a clean and quiet space to rest after a long day in the park. There were a few things that disappointed us: 1. We had to pay $10 per day to use wifi internet in no more than 2 devices. This is so inconvenient and kind of nuts for 2021, specially in a place with poor cellphone service. 2. We stayed there in September 2021 and they were not offering housekeeping "because of covid", which is bs since no one in the staff was wearing a mask. So clearly, their safety or the guests safety from covid was not their priority at all, unless when it is to not provide services that we expect to receive. 3. Also, not sure if it is because we were staying after Labour Day, but the diner was closed, the only option nearby for breakfast was a pretty decent biscuit sandwich and coffee in a small coffee shop (?) in the premises. 4. Not so important, but also a bit annoying, is that the shower has not enough water pressure. Apart from those inconveniences our stay went well. The staff at the reception was nice and we didn't use the amenities (like the pool) so I can't comment on those.
