Overpriced and slightly dirty

Made reservations here for a one night stay to visit the Sequoias. The views from the back porch are gorgeous, but that’s the only redeeming factor. Food was extremely overpriced. Rooms are in desperate need of renovation. There was dust and cobwebs on the fan, behind the TV, etc. TV remote didn’t work. Random toothpick was in the nightstand? I worry about the overall cleanliness of this place. In addition, the door to our room didn’t seal at the bottom and lets in a large draft (can be bad in the winter time when we are staying). Overall for the price of what we payed, this place is a no from me. They should be charging closer to $100-150 a night instead. Wouldn’t stay here again.

Great food - did not stay at Lodge

Staying nearby we were looking for a place to eat and the minute we walked into Gateway Restaurant we felt right at home. Local bought us a beverage hearing we had traveled far and all those in the bar were friendly and fun. Food and drinks were very good and done well. Like it so much we went back the next daya and ate again - buying t-shirts too! Great place - Kyle was wonderful!

This place makes you want to come back!

This restaurant and lodge makes you want to come back. I did just that, 6 weeks later. The owner and staff are exceptionally friendly and eager to please. The food is excellent and the views are even better. Stayed in room 6 (this trip) and room 7 last time. Both offer great views of the river and surrounding mountains. Thank you Glenn, Susan, Kyle, Ruthie and Lauren!

Cheers to the Sequoia Location and Tesla Charging

Enjoyed our recent stay. Great value at $99 per night. And with the big hills of Sequoia National Park, it was great starting out with a full charge thanks to the two onsite Tesla destination chargers. We also enjoyed the restaurant. We drank in the bar upon arrival and ate lunch before we departed the next day. Great food and river views. We’ll definitely stay here again.

Was not what I expected

Stayed at the Gateway Lodge in room 1 thinking I would have had some access to the river other than the Restaurant, but NO! The room I picked was the closest to the hiway. It was not so bad except for the antiqu ated mini fridge & the hard bed, the TV was maybe 28" but I was able to hook up my laptop & watch Netflix. The Wifi was descent that is why I am giving them 2 stars instead of 1. Bang for the buck $$$$ it was the worse I've ever experienced. I would not ever stay there again, a lesson well learned. $199 on weekdays & $249 on weekends? Who are you kidding?
