Just came back from our trip to Sequoia. Stayed at this lodge on July 5 for one night. Very unhappy with the room stayed. Appeared that they're hiding some facts to make us reserve for this so called the "Suite" with 2 kings & 2 bunks. We're two families of two adults (couples) & two boys (total 8). They offered my friend the "Suite" and she asked them about the difference between the suite for 8 and two single rooms for 8. They told her there's no difference except that the rooms for the suite has a connecting door between the two rooms. When I called few days after to make a new reservation for another family (a single room with a King & a bunk), I asked about them the suite again & was given the same answer. So, I'd like to make it clear here what "a suite" with 2 Kings & 2 bunks means at Montecito: there's only one bathroom between the two rooms. So, 8 people will have to share the same bathroom. Since it's a shared bathroom (with a sink, a shower & a toilet) between the two rooms, there should be a close door for each room for privacy purpose but that's not the case. The room without a window (yes, without window) has a close door but not the other one. Yes, no close door for the room!! This is a lodge without air-conditioning. No window!!! Worse is that the toilet is old & clog after 3 uses!! We ended up have to use the toilet in the lobby to ........
I agree with the other visitors about the location and activities available at the lodge. I wouldn't have given a poor review if it's not because they're hiding some facts about the suite. It could be that no other visitors will want to reserve it. We'd have reserved 3 separate rooms with a King & a Bunk each & be happy visitors. Another thing to mention here is that the bottom bed for the bunk was very low.
