8/10 Very good

Great location for visiting Sequoia national park. Rooms were very outdated and refrigerator didn’t get cold enough. Shower appeared to have mold at the top and there was not enough parking as people visiting the restaurant park in the hotel parking. There needs to be signs stating lodge parking only.
