The room was very cozy and comfortable, and service was great. The receptionist also helped us with the local sight-seeing and finding routes to the 100-Giants. I would recommend to friends and family!

Hello, I'm so very sorry to hear your stay was not to satisfaction. The upper row of rooms that I suspect your stay to be in were built in 1955. I'm not quite sure what you mean by "run down", but I will agree that...More

The whole staff is very friendly/accomodating. As for rooms, I'd recommend 111 (sequoia tree), 113 (Manzanita) or if you want some more space there is rooms 110 (kern river) or the 301(the duplex). Those are all options with... More
