Great location to park, food at the resturant was good and the service there was good. Place was a little dusty, needed a good deep clean. Place is older and it shows. Location was great. Sits right on the river.

Bad experience
We didn’t stay once in the room we decided to leave due to the condition of the room. The AC was old and dirty. Impossible for us to spend the night we lost our money too bad.

Older quait property with gret location
The hotel is older yet still quaint. It is the closest accommodations to the south entrance to Sequoia Nat'l Park. The location is VERY scenic and peaceful. Food in the restaurant was good though a bit pricey. Service was GREAT and people very friendly. Would stay here again.

Our cabin was right on the river. We enjoyed sitting on the deck in the morning enjoying a cup of coffee and in the evening sipping a glass of wine while enjoying the rushing rapids of the river below.
