My wife and two sons and I took off for a 3600 mile road trip which took us through places including Kings Canyon. What a beautiful place and especially in the evening. We weren't camping so we winged a room every night. From Texas to Arizona, to California, to New Mexico we never had any issues finding a room. Of course the Sequoias National Park lodging was all booked up and packed with tourist. We decided to head down to Kings Canyon for the second half of the day knowing we would need to come back up and out of the parks to find a place to stay and THEN return if we wanted to see much more of the parks we hadn't seen yet. On the way down Kings Canyon we stopped and checked on a room here. Its nothing fancy, clean beds, nice little balcony looking at the canyon wall on our room to the top right side facing the lodge entrance. Clean bathroom and hot water in the shower. NO INTERNET or cell phone coverage which I thought was a PLUS! No TV another plus. No AC but it got plenty cool in the evening even in late July. It was a very quiet peaceful night sleep for a reasonable rate considering the location. We were up early and back into the Sequoias within 15min. If you have been you know it could be well over a grueling hr ride up to the Sequoias after entering the park.
So its all about what you are looking for and if its a place to put your feet up in the middle of a peaceful and BEAUTIFUL fresh air nowhere and enjoy a nice drink and a stogie (or whatever is relaxing for you) on a quiet deck as the sun creeps away from the canyon walls and following that with a quiet nights sleep and an early start then I say bah to all the naysayers that have given this little treasure bad reviews. Great little find and a good quiet hub to see more of both Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks on short notice without camping.
