The place is very clean spacious it has kitchens and big refrigerator which is great for a trip to the mountains we cook there. But the air conditioning makes a lot of noise it was hard to sleep, shower has little water and is very hot, it is difficult to take shower, TV does not have good programming.

You reach at the property late evening or night to find out that there is no front desk. Just a board saying check in is at another hotel 2 miles away. This is very inconvenient. Plus there is no communication from the hotel beforehand providing these "special" "wierd" check in instructions. In general the room was ok, clean. But anything you might need assistance with, you would need to drive 2 miles and ask them. Coz there is no mobile reception, qnd the wifi is spotty. My hot plate was not working. We ended up not cooking at all, rather than go back 2 miles and complain about it. So, if you love to be on your own, solving your own problems yourselves without the help from the front desk, this is the perfect property for you! Just imagine, after checking in, if your key doesn't work ... what would you do?

Nice two bed room located right off the main road. Perfect location just a short drive from the Arch entrance to Yosemite National Park. Red Bud has access to the amenities of Cedar Lodge (check in location) just down the road. Would stay here again and I recommend as a budget hotel.
