Comfortable and clean. Fairly basic though it had other outdoor facilities which I did not use. Internet connection reliably worked when I sat on the bench outside the office. You collect your breakfast from the motel office by 9pm. The choice was limited - no cereals apart from some rather nasty oatmeal mixes, though, given the room rate, not unexpected. I suggest you buy some cereal and milk in advance elsewhere. My main question is whether it is the best option for seeing the two main sights. The motel as close as you will get to the General Sherman giant sequoia, though even then it is about an hour away up a tortuous road. However Kings Canyon is much further. It takes about two and half hours to the end of the canyon beyond Cedar Grove (take route away from the mountains), so a motel on the road in from Fresno to Squaw Valley (not THE Squaw Valley!) would be much closer. Although you would miss out on the General Sherman, there is another group of giant sequoias in from the park entrance (General Grant Grove). While not quite as big as the General Sherman, I recall the General Grant is about the third biggest and so might be an adequate substitute. This would allow both sights to be covered on the same day. The Mexican restaurant, Serranos, is not recommended.
