The room we had, unit 2, was upstairs, quiet, spacious, clean, and fairly private. Upon checking in, we were greeted warmly and felt immediately at home. The room has a microwave and fridge, and they supply a 'breakfast basket' with a muffin and sweet roll (could be healthier options!), fruit, drinks but the coffee beans and the grinder in the room was a nice touch, except I worried about waking up other guests when I ground it at 6am!
The pool looked inviting and clean, the grounds have a lovely river right behind it, so that was cool! We left our windows open at night and slept to the roar of the river.
We didn't watch TV but there was one in the room. They had games available to borrow from the office so we did that instead. I saw that in the office they also had movies and books to loan. Overall I would say this was the nicest place in the area and definitely had the nicest people! We would stay again if we were in the area. (But if you are hiking in Sequoia like we were, be aware that there's a major elevation change from the hotel to the hiking areas!)
