Luckily we only stayed at this well over priced dump for 1 night.The location is with out a doubt a lovely setting but the old ramshackled lodges that you have to bed down in are Dreadfull! Our AC worked but it was beyond belief how much noise it gave off.Also,the food is very average but very expensive because they can.Its... More

Fortunately we only had to stay one night. We were embarrassed that foreign travelers might think that this place is the best we have to offer. Grounds had discarded items scattered about, room with two beds meant you could not get to the closet without climbing over the bed. The night we were there, there was a band which started... More

I just stayed there for three nights. We were in the cabin with the river view off the big back patio. We caught trout on the river below. We saw a Mother black bear and her two cubs right below our patio. We ate breakfast everyday over the river and had BBQ steaks on the patio one night also. The... More

It’s a sin. This hotel is located in such a perfect spot: just a mile or two from the southern entrance of Sequoia National Park, alongside the gorgeous Kaweah River. The problem is that this lodge is old & crappy. If the owners were to raze this mess and create a cozy and vibrant new “Gateway” to Sequoia National Park,... More

We stayed here 3 nights in June. I have to say, if all you are looking for is a place to sleep at night, it is ok. They have a beautiful spot on the river, but you can only enjoy it if you stay in the riverfront cabin or go to their overpriced restaurant. There is no safe spot to... More

I absolutely do not recommend this lodge. It is totally overpriced for what you get. The staff is unfriendly and not a bit helpful. But what really matters is the room itself. They said its all renovated, with new carpets, but it wasn't, it looks very old and lousy. Bathroom was a mess. Hairs from other people everywhere. Urine spots... More

We stayed at the Gateway March 27 & 28th. Everyone was very nice and welcoming. The rooms had just been redone and was very nice. Has a beautiful dining area along the creek. We were told to make ourselves at home and had a nice stay. Would stay again.

We booked 2 nights and had a terrific time. Everyone went out of there way to see our stay was a great experience. Met the owner Glen, who showed up at our door with a free bottle of champagne. The river was outside our back door with all the sounds of nature. We took our 2 small dogs and they... More

Thanks for taking the time to write such a nice review. We have spent over $100,000 in room renovations this year, so all our rooms have a fresh new look. If you want to come and have a great time with great food and drinks, this is the place to stay. More

Stayed here for a family trip to Sequoia. Looked good on the internet, but when we got there it was terrible. Rooms are old. Shower wouldn't drain. A guy tried to plunge it and left, never came back. Couldn't find anyone it the morning to check out. Maybe they were prejudice, or just didn't care because they had my money... More

We understand your concerns. We have just completed a $100,000 renovation of all of our rooms. Floors, ceilings, walls, sinks, counter tops, art, fixtures and even light switched and plugs. The Gateway was originally built in the 1920's and prior owners did only what they could to keep things going. My wife, Susan has gracefully redecorated all of our rooms... More

We ended up at the Gateway when, thanks to Obamacare, the Sequoia National Park was shut and we could not get in to the lodge we had booked in the park. Glenn saved our bacon, and we had one of the best nights in our 3 week trip to the States. Admittedly the rooms are not the Bellagio, but Glenn's... More
