Travelling from Palm Desert to Sequoia

How long should I allow for this trip, intending to stay at Montecito Lodge? Is it feasible to stay at Montecito and see both Sequoia and Kings Canyon? Or is it advisable to stay in different places?

"How long should I allow for this trip," do you mean how long will driving time be? 6 hours iif traffic is good traffic. Or do you mean how many days in the park? Min of 3.

Yes you can easily stay at Montecito and see both parks.

Thanks. I meant driving. I assume the road to take is the the one through Bakersfield? Or is there a way in from the 395?

From Palm Desert take shortest way to I10,. not via 111 and Palm Springs. That's timeconsuming.

No there's no way in from 395. Drive via Bakersfield. There are roadwotks from Three Rivers on 198 but maybe they are gone when you are visiting.
