Paid over $200 for a $100 room at best, apparently because this is in a national park. However, the "nearby" areas (aren't really nearby) are just as high if not more so until you get into Visalia or other areas of the San Joaquin Valley....More

Comfortable, traditional park lodge. Clean, nice staff and conveniently and beautifully located. Only reason it’s not 5 stars is that it’s a bit pricey and the WiFi/internet did not work in the room. The nearby restaurant has very average food.

Actually, our review indicated that cleanliness was not a problem. The hotel is dated and service is spotty although friendly. Please be aware that we stayed in the lodge itself and not one of the cabins.
