“Over promises, under delivers”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

A group of five booked the "honey moon house", which was promoted as a two story house which slept 6 people. In fact it is an integral part of a larger building, has no views, is right next to the road, no privacy, is opposite the office. Honey mooners be warned.

The furnishing were average, mixed, rickety, dusty. The art deco kitchen clean, functional, and must have been built in the 70's. the air conditioning could only be adjusted by management: it was set on cold (was too cold) when we arrived, so had it turned off. Later when it was hot, management could not turn it on ! Worst of all the single toilet and shower were in the same room so we spent the entire stay waiting or wondering for it to be available. The breakfast was very basic.

This hotel is right outside of Sequoia, and we couldn't get anything in the park. It was horrible. The staff at the front desk were very nice but the room was horrible. I'm usually not picky at all but this was cinder block walls and just bad- for $200 a night!

I loved this place. Adorable old skool furnishings. Stayed 3 nights. Very clean and simple. It was over 100 degrees and they did provide us with a fan on top of the air conditioner which saved out sweaty butts. Very close to the park. Will definitely recommend this place and will stay here again.

We stayed here one night and liked the place. The room was spacious, clean and had a fireplace. The bathroom was very clean and roomy. We only spent one night so did not get a chance to explore the grounds. I would stay here again.

The Lodge exceeded my expectations.Spacious rooms, clean and comfortable, coffee and tea machine, fridge with cold water.Nice swimming pool opened late night.Fresh pastries and cereals, coffee and juice for breakfast - but some milk will be great if served.The location is perfect for one night if you go to Sequoia Park from the South. The road to/from Sequoia with stunning views is soo curvy that it takes at least an hour to reach the elevation of 7000 feet to enter General Sherman trail.I can not imagine driving up and down every morning if you choose that Lodge for more days to explore the Park.

We stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting the National Park. I have to agree with other reviewers who say the hotel is definitely from the 70s. Absolutely fine though, and quite nice that this unique kind of accommodation is still to be had. Nice and clean, and I would consider staying here again. The pool was ok and we had no complaints about our stay. Perfect location for a visit to the Park. There are fairly limited restaurant options nearby but the hotel staff were able to make a good recommendation.
