The Buckeye Tree Lodge is ideally located for the national parks - only about 1/4 mile from the entrance to Sequoia. This makes it perfect for early starts, beating the crowds in the parks. It does mean that Three Rivers (which is very spread out anyway) is quite a way away, but there are good restaurants nearby.
The accommodation is slightly old but not shabby, and the rooms are very spacious, offering all you need for a comfortable sleep (big bed, air con & fan, coffee-making facilities, good TV). Additionally, there is a very nice little swimming pool with loungers out front.
The best thing though is the views of the valley and hills, and the river out back, which offers great wading, dipping, and sunbathing.
