Except for the fact that you are in repose at nearly 10,000 feet, which is great for the acclimitization at night.
And as far as "bang for the buck" goes, TPR isn't a charity. I have too many sentimental attachments to the place, especially the older cabins, to object. Lee Vining may have other, cheaper, rooms for the evening, but I don't think there's much comparison.
Julia and her team have always done a tremendous job of making me and my family feel welcome. I hadn't heard that they were having a tough time getting set up this season, but I hope they can open soon.
Maybe the downtime will give them an opportunity to modernize the website.
