          Great staging area for exploring the redwoods for anyone who prefers a hotel to camping. Great restaurant. Food was excellent but a bit pricey, but that's what you pay for good food in the middle of a beautiful wilderness area.

(I've looked and looked for that on your website). Are (male) guests permitted to wear berets in the dining room? Do you have an AARP rate? Thank you for your assistance!
