After hiking Alta Peak, we knew we wanted to stay in the Giant Forest area rather than have a long drive. While considerably out of our price range, we decided to stay here for it seemed to have gotten fairly good reviews.
When checking in just before 5:00 pm, there was a short wait. The attendant was adequate, but not overly friendly. As the deli and snack shop were closed for the season as Lodgepole, we quickly made reservations for 5:15 at the dining room. We were not excited about this as we were already over budget on the lodging.
We quickly unloaded our things and got ready for dinner. The room was nice, but there were some concerns about a dirty carpet. It is a trek to get from the parking lot to the room...pack lightly or use the luggage cart. We were in the Stillman building lower level.
We both ended up getting soup and salad for dinner - and were happy with it (although it was still over $30 for the two of us). They sat us next to the window which was nice, but there was no big sweeping view (just forest). We figured they would try to rush us out to get the window seat available for someone else, but indeed they didn't - so we just sat and enjoyed.
The lobby area did have functioning wifi; there were a few couches and seats outside. The wifi did not work in our room. There was a television.
The beds were okay; the bathroom nice (good water pressure, hot water, fan). All linens were clean. We were tired and had no problems falling asleep...therefore, it seemed quiet to us! It was chilly the night we were there, but it did seem that they had a window AC...also a ceiling fan an oscillating fan on the desk.
We did not go for breakfast, but they had a limited continental and full buffet option listed the night before. Moro Rock and General Sherman were just up the road in the morning! With an early start, we had Moro Rock all to ourselves. It is a high price to pay, but it is a nice location.
