  • 6.0.Good

    Paid a lot of money to stay every time I was in the lobby I heard complaints from others with only a I’m so sorry that gets old after while. We had just a couple of issues that we weren’t happy about. Water for the shower barely came out seriously it just trickled out and to top that they requested for us to only take a 5 minute shower. Only had decaf coffee in our room. Two days before we left they started to use only half the amount of coffee in the lounge because they were running out so the coffee was weak and tasted like water. The food they made at their make shift restaurant because of California’s COVID policies and not very good and definitely not worth it so we microwaved are breakfast and dinners… lots of fun not really did I forget to tell you that we’re on vacation. Best thing the park and canyon are breathtaking.

    Very convenient location right in the park, quiet and surrounded by beautiful nature. As expected, wifi was available only in the lobby, but enough to access emails. Texting/calling was not possible. The restaurant close by exceeded our expectations, food was delicious. Overall very good stay for our family if four. I would recommend.

    Convenient location to Sequoia and Kings Canyon. Rooms have no air conditioning except wall heaters. Weather was cool so we opened the window and put the table fan in front of it to sleep comfortably. Staffing is obviously a problem with Covid 19. The room was not ready at 5pm because housekeeping had not gotten to it yet and the front desk clerk seemed very stressed. WiFi doesn’t work In the rooms. Only signal was available in the main lobby.

    Location was amazing and the staff was fantastic. The food nearby was rather overpriced for the quality, but there's a microwave and hot water in the lobby, and a fridge in the room, so I do recommend bringing food. Loved all the rocking chairs outside. There really is no wifi in the rooms so it's perfect for getting away, but the wifi is plenty sufficient in the lobby if necessary.

    It was a one night stay as I was riding through. Don’t expect cell or wifi service. Wifi Best in the lobby. Not a 5 star hotel but worth it.
