Cousins sorry for the delay I have been gone more than home lately.
I can speak for the Oakhurst area. There are several options for lodging. Starting from the South and working North towards Yosemite.
The Chukchansi Casino. It is right off HWY 49 8 miles from Oakhurst and 25 from Yosemite. Rooms are fairly new and anyone who stays there loves it. They have a good cheap lunch and Dinner Buffet. Rooms will run you $150.00 to $250.00
Next up the hill is in the town of Oakhurst. There is Best Value (stay away!!), Comfort Inn, Days Inn, and Oakhurst Lodge. These will cost in the $100..- to $150 range. Also there is Best Western and Shilo Inn. These are about $25.00 more but a lot better and you will enjoy them more.
Up the hill and to the right about 6 miles is Bass Lake. A very nice Lodge. It will cost $175-$200. A very beautiful place right on the Lake. Ducey is the place to eat there. Dinner is a little $$ but very good. Breakfast is $6.99 for their Ham and Eggs, with all the fixin. The Ham is supposed to be 16 oz, but I think it is bigger than that.Of course there is many more items on the menus. It is a good place to visit and eat no matter where you stay.
Tenaya Lodge is next. It is in the $190.00 and up range. Very top of the line. The Last is inside the Park Wawona Lodge. It is in the $170 to 250 range. An older but well keep place.
I did not use these links to check prices. I just listed what people have told me. The prices might be higher or lower.
If you have any question ....please ask.
October will be a good time to visit.
