We stayed in a room with a king size bed (room number 5). We paid $200 for 2 nights, including tax and 10% for AAA members.
The girl in the lobby, Victoria, is very helpful and knowledagble.
The room was clean and cozy. there are two doors, the back faces the river. You have a table and chairs outside, and if the weather is good, it's great to sit there and relax.
There is a restaurant (Gateways restaurant) next to the lodge. They have good food (didn't try that, but that's what everyone says) although it's pricy. We decided to drive to Visalia for dinner every day (40 minutes).
The bed was very comfortable (firm matress), the towels pretty soft. The airconditioner is very noisy and if you need to turn it on (heat,cold) you can't sleep. The shower is very small but it's OK.
There is a new unit that they build in the lodge, called "Falcon" which is supposed to be new and fancy. If you are looking for a fancier accomodation, ask about that.
