Stayed there twice. The owners Carla and Lewis Evans think nothing of arguing in front of the guests. They are rude to everyone, sort of equal opportunity. One example: "the lock on my door doesn't operate" response "you're lucky, some people don't even have a lock". Another, my daughter petting their vey social dog: "don't pet that dog!" We had...

The rustic lodge is an ideal place to enjoy solitude. The area has lots of bear activity, but many have not seen any bears. The trails are just superb but some are strenuous. At 6000ft altitude most activities tend to be strenuous. The restaurant is not great but in the wilderness the food that was offered was acceptable.

We have visited this business several times and experienced rude service each time. The owners are belligerent and not interested in making the visit a positive experience. The ice cream/food is over priced and served with hostility. I recommend continuing into the canyon and stopping at Cedar Grove. The experience there is much more enjoyable.

No, I am not talking about the lack of wifi or TV. I left the windows open, and the mosquitos came in and ate me alive. Other than that it was a nice place. There was cold beer, nice grub, and a fantastic chocolate shake.

First off, it should be understood that this is an old-fashioned lodge owned by a outdoorsy man. This is not a hotel owned by a huge company and it should not be compared. The owner was quiet, polite, and took pride in his 1938 building, classic 1928 working gas pumps, over 300 historic photos, and his dog, Cougar. The owner... More

My husband and I stopped in here for lunch after a long day of traveling since it was listed on the park map. The food was subpar and the attitude of the management was even worse. The manager was extremely rude during our meal. After taking our order, he made it a point to make fun of my name after... More

This was the poorest value for our money that we have every had. We stopped here without realizing that there was a delightful hotel just down the road about 30 minutes. Since we got there right at 5, we were not able to get anything to eat so headed to the other lodge. Our dinner there was delightful and the... More

We were tent camping and decided to "lodge" for one night. The owner went to town for the night immediately after renting us a $100 room. It was a bedroom. There was a very small bath. The room was too hot to start. Then the sun set and wind began to blow. It got cold. We couldn't figure out how... More

129$ per night is around 120$ too much for this dump. Stay away from this terrible place: old worn out beds, very small cabins, bad smell, cold, poor food, no wifi, no cell phone access, no nothing actually. Except: Located far out in the wonderful nature in Kings Canyon.
