Although people generally stay here on their way into the park, the surroundings of this lodge could make it a destination unto itself for people who enjoy sycamore trees, chaparral plants, and a fast falling river. The room itself feels like a beige time capsule from a few decades ago and was not as clean as I would have liked. Still, the overall experience was quite positive for me. Staff are clearly focused on offering a superior value in an idyllic location with friendly service. They are closer to Sequoia National Park than any other option in Three Rivers. I enjoyed their very unique amenities, including whole coffee beans and a grinder in each room, free telephone calls anywhere in the U.S. and homemade muffins. I visited in the off season and management kindly allowed me to leave my car parked at this property as I explored Sequoia NP with friends who arrived to Three Rivers in their own vehicle. Patricia, who staffed the front desk during our stay, was genuinely considerate and helpful.
