This is an OK hotel placed in a beautiful national park, which I guess explains why it is on the pricy side. The room was OK-just OK-neat and clean but no TV or WI-fi. When we first checked in I was washing my hands and heard a drip, drip, drip and there was a leak under the sink and the carpet under it was saturated. You could see the vacuum marks where the maid had just vacuumed over it but hadn't noticed or didn't care. Anyway, I called the front desk and they sent someone right up-and the guy replaced a broken connector. No one dried the carpet, so I just had to keep putting a couple of towels under the sink to soak up the moisture. By the fourth day, it was starting to stink, but we were checking out so it wasn't a huge issue. The porches at the end of the building are nice so bring your own wine and sit and enjoy the trees after a long day of hiking. The restaurant is pretty bare bones as far as food. Frozen hamburger patties, bottled salad dressings, etc. I would have preferred at least a good sandwich or a barbequed chicken breast-but you are a captive audience-so there probably isn't much incentive to improve the choices with fresh ingredients and innovative cooking. The park is absolutely gorgeous with dozens of great hikes and little crowding. We took a hike up to Little Baldy and it was one of the best views I have ever seen in my life! Amazing! The Sequoias are awesome! We were also lucky enough to see quite a few bears along the roads eating acorns in the trees. We even ran into one on the trail to Misty Falls-a little scary-but a great story to share.
