We have stayed here once before. I like the location, away from the congestion of Grant's Grove and convenient to the Sequoia's and Moro, Beetle and Sunset Rock, and the meadows. Plus, it is cooler where it is. My primary complaint here is loading and unloading. the bldgs. (3 of them) are located separately from the main "lodge", which houses the restaurant, front desk and a small gift shop. It is about a 300 yd walk thru shrubs and trees to the sleeping qtrs. The bldgs. are 3 stories and you come in on the "2nd" floor and the "1st" floor is upstairs and the "3rd" floor is down. There are no elevators, so plan accordingly. We were on a 2 week adventure including a conference, so we had lots of stuff. There is a service road that runs right beside the bldgs. where you go in, but it is not supposed to be for guests...although a few did do this. The parking area is separated into three sections, two (I think, may have been three) upper lots with the walk up between the bldgs., and a lower overflow lot. The problem here is if you are not in the lot in front of a particularly bldg., you have to haul stuff down to the walkway, to go back up to the one you are staying in. They do have luggage carts that end up sitting in the parking lot, or up in one of the bldgs. The trick here is that you have to leave someone with your cart and luggage as you shuttle it up or down if you are not on the "2nd" floor. I preferred to be on the top floor so you did not have to worry about leaving window open at nite or when you go out for the day since it is not at ground level. And lastly, you have to take everything food wise in to your room so bears do not get try to get in your car. And they are there. we saw 5 adjacent to lodge while eating dinner.
Although this may sound like I am complaining, I am really not...just be prepared for the setup. I really like the place and hope to return. It is very peaceful and relaxing, away from things.
