I can see why prior reviews were mostly positive but mixed. It's a great location right outside the southern entrance to Sequoia National Park, along the main road, but the setting on the river overcomes any road noise. Breakfast basket had some nice fruit. Everything worked well, including an HD TV with a massive number of channels. WiFi was a mystery, never quite worked over the two days we were there, but the hosts let us use their guest computer in the office. Our room (king mini suite) was one reasonably big room with a nice window that looked out on the river. It's an older property and has some deferred maintenance, but nothing serious. We ate breakfast at a picnic table set right on the rocks by the river, that was a big highlight out back. For the price (about $250 for two nights), it was valuable.
