When one goes to a national park with family, sometimes you have a need to stay at a lodge/hotel instead of roughing it (car-camping.) Most national parks do not have much choices in lodging and Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park is no exception. There is one lodge within Sequoia Nat'l Park boundary, i.e. Wuksachi. (There is Stony Creek Lodge but that's within Sequoia National Forest.) It's fairly modern (less than 15 years??) and clean. It is probably the nicest lodging inside Sequoia/Kings Canyon boundary. It has a decent restaurant that you need to walk to from the lodge. That's about it. It's all nature from there, surrounded by sequoia trees and birds and nature. Lodgepole Village (not really a village but just one market/cafeteria/campground/trails to a fall) is within 10-20 minute driving distance and Moro Rock/Giant Forest is close as well.
If you can camp instead of staying at a motel/lodge, that's awesome. If you are not a camper or want to sleep on the bed for a change, this is it in Sequoia National Park. It is over-priced, Yes, but what isn't inside National Park? That is the price one pays for the comfort and warmth in the middle of nature.
