3/5 Okay

Traveled with partner
Convenient location to Sequoia and Kings Canyon. Rooms have no air conditioning except wall heaters. Weather was cool so we opened the window and put the table fan in front of it to sleep comfortably. Staffing is obviously a problem with Covid 19. The room was not ready at 5pm because housekeeping had not gotten to it yet and the front desk clerk seemed very stressed. WiFi doesn’t work In the rooms. Only signal was available in the main lobby.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Location was amazing and the staff was fantastic. The food nearby was rather overpriced for the quality, but there's a microwave and hot water in the lobby, and a fridge in the room, so I do recommend bringing food. Loved all the rocking chairs outside. There really is no wifi in the rooms so it's perfect for getting away, but the wifi is plenty sufficient in the lobby if necessary.

Close to both parks. Food was good. Had only one microwave in the lobby for all the guest. TV did not work the first day. No internet in the room and barely worked in the lobby.
