We chose this facility because it is located half way between the attractions at Kings Canyon NP and Sequoia NP. And indeed it is. Which mean driving a fair distance to reach either. This is a no frills lodge run by the NPS which means very basic accommodations. However, we found the Cedar Grove Lodge in Kings Canyon to be superior in terms of amenities, cleanliness and friendliness. It was also less expensive.
The positives: you are very close to some of the most spectacular scenery in the world; there is reasonably priced gas available; there is a general store with a fair amount of food, essentials, etc.; there is also a relatively inviting lobby in which to read, have coffee, etc.; continental breakfast.
The not-so-positives: the room was passably clean and had a VERY stale odor to it; one rather dim light fixture for the entire room; no AC; you are right on the busy main road; the young staff were, frankly, a bit odd--as if they were unacustomed to helping/interacting with guests.
The verdict: will try other lodging next time around.
