Ellie is right both area are worth seeing. If you go by tourist count most go to Yosemite. The valley is really something to see. If you are in early Oct, or during a dry fall you can go to Glacier Point. After the 1st snow it closes.
If I had to choose one it would be Yosemite, but I grew up backpacking there. She is my first love and the place I call home. Kings Canyon/Sequoia has much to see and you will not regret going there if you can just do one place.

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.

If you go to San Francisco try to see Muir Woods. It's truly beautiful.
