At the end of May there are not a constant flow of tourists to this awesome area. The Lodge is centrally located to Sequoia Park and to Kings Canyon. Wandering day trips and lazy lounging both are accommodated here. Currently under new management the lodge has been given a sprucing up, remodeled in a budget woodsy feel and plans for wifi in the rooms are underway. As of this writing wifi is accessible only in public areas. That creates evenings of everyone privately focused in the public areas. :) There are some ranger activities and living history presentations here.
There are blissfully, no tv's. The rooms are clean, spacious and function well. It is not fancy. I wished for a balcony of which there are none. Staff is polite and fairly efficient. There is one restaurant which tries hard and meets the middle fairly efficiently. The market has unappetizing food and could make a better business with keeping current to food trends and flexibility. If you have high expectations of a luxury resort this is not for you. If your focus is this magnificent area and you want a comfortable clean place to stay consider JM Lodge.
