“Good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

Good hotel(motel) close to south entrance to Sequoria park, clean if a little tired. Well welcoming staff, has small pool, no restaurant, close to road might be noisy. Simple but satisfactory breakfast.

Spacious room with all utilities and facilities. Economical. It is close to Sequoia National Park. The only thing I didn't like was there was not enough drinking water. We have to carry our own water there.

So would you like to travel back in time to say oh, 1970? Then this is the place for you.

The room was very clean, they had also turned on the heater (air conditioner unit) before we got there which was nice as it was about 45 out.

We got the king room with a mountain view, well the view did have a mountain in it, behind the utility pole and electric lines! I attached a picture. The king bed was old but not really uncomfortable. The sheets were not a high quality, but they were clean.

The decor was a throw back in time, from the wallpaper, to the bathroom heater (dont turn it on unless you like the smell of burning hair), to the bedspread and dog bedecked wallpaper in the bathroom. Defintely the old hotel smell was working hard in that room!

Now all this would not bother me if the cost was in line with the accomodations, $88 per night in the off season was high for what we got. I would $40 would be more than ample.

The "breakfast" was coffee and poor quality pastries, and something that looked like orange juice

Rooms are dirty, including bed sheets. Over priced for what you get. We stayed at their family suite. It was falsely advertised as a free standing house with fireplace. Call before you make your reservations. This house was not free standing of course, and no fireplace. Property has so much potential, but those rooms will not allow me to revisit that lodge.

I just loved this place. Went there quite late when it was all dark outside already. It was lovely to wake up and see the view, all the mountains and nature.
Room was nice and comfortable.
Breakfast was usual continental but in this place it looked so much better :) to have a coffee with view like this.
Reception staff was really friendly.

The shower worked, had hot water, the conditioner was fine, had a great sleep. You even get breakfast if you want in the lobby. Internet was below average or at least mine was like that, i barely could load tripadviser, it is for free. Close to places for chain rentals.

Room Tip: I booked th. expedia

Stayed here 2 nights in early October. Here is what I saw as the pros and cons (full review to follow):

PROS: location close to Sequoia National Park; excellent service; mini-fridge; clean room; separate heater in bathroom;

CONS: no place to eat dinner on-site; parking was awkward; continental breakfast not served until 8 AM; external spiral staircase was difficult to navigate with luggage; our room was next to highway (noisy);

We had reserved ahead of time on-line and arrived on a Weds evening around 7:45 PM. The woman at the front desk could not have been more friendly and helpful - checking us in quickly, walking us to our room and pointing out our parking space, giving us helpful information about local eating establishments. The next day we spoke with another employee who was very helpful with directions to the local market and taking our postcards to mail for us. Cannot say enough nice things about the people there.

We headed out to dinner - eating establishments are at least a mile away, but several are located along the main highway and easy to find. Back to the hotel to park and unpack; our parking space was underneath the room, which meant it was covered, which turned out to be nice the next night in the rain, but with a curb along one edge and a column on the other side, I had trouble navigating our on-the-large-side rental car into it. For rooms A-E, a spiral staircase leads up to the balcony that runs across the front of the rooms - it was an experience getting our long duffle bag and other luggage up the spiral staircase. Was even trickier getting down it when it was wet from rain. Other than that, I thought the spiral staircase was quirky in a cute way.

Our room door was a sliding glass door, which I also found quirky and unusual, but not in a bad way. It opened into the main room which contained a double bed, 2 nightstands, small table with 2 chairs, fireplace (I believe you are charged extra if you wish to have a fire, but could have been reading the signs wrong), a dresser with a TV and clock radio located on top and several lamps. There was a small enclave to the side that had a place to hang clothes, a mini-fridge, a coffee maker, and the entrance to the bathroom. The bathroom had a shower stall, sink, counter top with 2 shelves, and a toilet all lined up along one side. On the opposite wall, down near floor level was a heater built into the wall that you could turn on with a timer for 1/2 hour or so - NICE when getting out of the shower. I liked the exposed beams in the main room as they made it feel like a cabin. The concrete block walls in the bathroom took away from that feel and felt utilitarian (institutional). Decor in general was shabby and dated, but hey, we were only here to sleep and I can't see the walls/carpet when it's dark. It was clean, and that is more important to us. We had to unplug a lamp in order to plug in our laptop, and the clock was unplugged with no available outlet to put it in, so in this way the place seemed outdated and in need of an upgrade. There is no cell phone reception here, but free wireless access to the internet is available. Wi-fi worked in our room. There is a pool, but I can't review that because we didn't use it.

We slept OK - it was impossible to get the room completely dark because of the sliding glass door (there are blinds covering it, but they are not the room darkening kind) and there was quite a bit of noise from the highway (rooms A-E are right along the highway, except for a row of palm trees that separate them). But the bed was comfortable, and I wore earplugs.

The next morning, we went to the lobby for the continental breakfast. There were packets of oatmeal with hot water available; danish; mini cinnamon rolls; some fruit; coffee and pink lemonade. There is a small sofa with coffee table and some scattered chairs around the lobby, but most people opted to take their food back to their room to eat it. The 8 AM start time for the breakfast seemed late, but was not too much trouble for us that morning. The next day, however, we wanted an early morning start, so we had to get breakfast on the road.

Overall, we thought the price we paid (about $60 before taxes, etc off-season through Priceline) was a little high for what we got, but it was the cheapest in the area, and we would likely stay here again if we are ever in the area again. We might look into paying a little more for one of the other rooms that is not next to the highway, though.

Room Tip: Rooms A-E are probably their budget rooms, since we tend to go for cheapest, and that's where we...
