We got to spend two nights here while on our week long visit to California. This was not our original plan but the itinary was disrupted and we didn't make it to Yosemite as planned. So instead we by chance booked the room here and got it for the following night as well. There is a restaurant on site, owned by the LampLiter, that is good and within walking distance of the rooms. The rooms are situated within a pretty, quiet, landscaped area off the highway but you'd never know it being there. The staff was outstanding to us and even stayed open until we arrived at almost 1 a.m. having gotten lost driving from San Fran the previous night. As soon as we got checked in, I had to get online to check tickets for Muir Woods (Sequoia Forest) that hubby wanted to see the next day, and the clerk let me use the lobby computer for the tickets. We went to bed and were back up for the tour that morning, which had a shuttle pick us up at the door. This was a comfortable, private tour bus that made several pickups just for this day trip. The drive itself to get to Muir Woods was over an hour but the scenery was gorgeous. When we got into the park I realized that I had only bought a ticket for us to get in, not to get back, and the shuttle driver, after dropping everyone else off, took us to his dispatcher office so we could get on the list to get back on the bus. They were all very accommodating, and it was crowded in the park that day. We stayed in the Sequoia forest for awhile, took our pictures and enjoyed the educational museum that they have. While waiting for the return bus we spoke to the park ranger on duty who gave us our trip route for the next day, which was to go back to the San Fransisco area to see the Redwood Forest. He was very helpful and the bus trip back was scenic, spotting a brown bear feeding by the roadside, and passing acres of lemon and orange groves. We dined at the aforementioned restaurant that night. There was an inviting outdoor pool but we didn't bring suits. The next day I had to print boarding passes and the clerk helped me with all of that, letting me use his personal laptop and the hotel's printer. They gave us our fill of coffee and wished us well as we had several hours' drive ahead to get back to the city.
