Deze accommodatie is gelegen in het Sequoia Nationaal Park.
• Internet in de gemeenschappelijke ruimtes
Sequoia National Park is opgericht in 1890, als tweede nationale park in Amerika, na Yellowstone. Het park grenst aan de noordzijde aan het Kings Canyon National Park. In het park ligt Mount Whitney, na Mount McKinley in Alaska met 4417 meter de hoogste berg van Amerika. De meeste reizigers die dit park bezoeken gebruiken het nabijgelegen Visalia als overnachtingsplaats.
"Good Option inside Park"
May be the only option inside the Park. It worked well for us as we had only one day to visit the park and enabled us to get an early start to visit some sites before sunset, which in November was around 4:30pm. The accomodation was comfortable. Rooms are a fair walk outside from the main lodge but we found them to be adequate for an overnight stay, clean with enough amenities. The lodge has a gift shop, a bar and restaurant. Food is pricey but what can you expect with a fairly remote location. Wi-Fi worked ok for us in the lodge but was spotty in the room. Breakfast had the usual choices, either 'continental' or 'full buffet'. Not included in the room rate.
"Location is all this place has going for it...."
If you want to hike and be able to quickly get into the Sequoia and King Canyon parks...this is a great location......but..... They advertise wifi...it is about as close to an outright lie as possible. It runs at dial up speeds (seriously...not joking), drops you about every 5 minutes, and I had no ATT service so there is no backup plan... really sucked because I had to work a little and ended up basically not being able to ... The food at the restaurant (the one and only) was average. You need to make your reservations PRIOR to arriving else it is unlikely they will have room. You can eat in the bar but there is VERY limited seating ...like 15 seats of 5 tables. There was a large group that arrived got really drunk and stayed in the bar watching football for hours...there was not a place to eat....we ended up eating in the lobby of the hotel. If you were expecting a big roaring fire...not going to happen. The lobby has a small wood burning stove. All those negatives...but we had deer walking through the parking lot and tons of "animals" running around....and the location is great... The front desk staff and bartender were awesome and apologetic...
This is what was good: - We had a superior room which was very large and comfortable. - We ate in the dining room all 3 nights there and the food was quite good. - There are good walking trails directly from the hotel. - And of course, Sequoia National Park is beautiful. On the negative side: - Wifi was virtually non-existent - The staffing in the dining room was poor and those they had were generally inexperienced - The check-in procedure was not good. It took forever, and the guy checking us in was robotic, just repeating his spiel without smiling or even making eye contact - There is very little good outside space for hanging out. There are 7 Adirondack chairs and 2 benches on the large covered porch but nothing over by the 3 sleeping buildings.
"Great food & atmosphere!"
This lodge was exactly what we needed after a rather cold day in the park. We did a few hikes and were longing for warm and comforting food. The lodge delivered. Service was rather slow though. Staff friendly & prices ok. Loved the fireplace in the lobby!
Staying at the top of the world near the largest trees in the world was a real breath of fresh air. It's not the swishest hotel but considering how remote it is it's amazing they manage to run at all. Staff were ace, food was good and the room comfy and warm. The real winner is the environment, you're in a place of pure raw nature, hence the bear warnings. As a base to explore the Sequoia and Kings Canyon it's ideal. A comfy place to chill after a days wandering in the woods.
