Pros: We stayed in the detached queen sweet cabin and it was perfect. A cozy, natural wood laden studio with an efficient kitchenette and a luxurious bath - the bed was very comfortable and the gas fireplace added the finishing touch to a private and romantic weekend. Exactly what we were looking for.
Pros: Warm cozy room on a cold snowy night. What else could you want? Picked up keys for the cottage at the bar. Staff very friendly. Bar food was excellent
Pros: We stayed in the separate cottage which was lovely, with our own garden area outside.
Cons: No TV and no breakfast.
Pros: There were some nice home made quiches and fresh fruit left for us in a small kitchenette area for breakfast. The room was warm & cosy looking.
Cons: Having booked a room in the main hotel, we found the hotel locked up and not open; there was a note stuck on the front door instructing us to go to the bar, in another building close by. We had arrived at the Dorrington after 6.00 pm, after a long journey from Santa Monica. We were tired. It was also my birthday on the day we arrived. The bar girl told us that a small log cabin had been prepared for us. It was very sweet, but there wasn't the restaurant we were promised with the hotel booking, nor a tv in our room. On checking out at 9.00 am, the next day none of the hotel or bar stuff were available to hand in our keys. We ended up giving them to the post office lady, who operated an office attached to the end if the bar area. We should Not to be sold something we were not getting. We were disappointed with the whole experience.

Pros: Ambiance. Friendly staff.

Pros: Staff n owner very helpful and friendly. Made us feel like friends. Town was very peaceful but lots of activity to do. And only 5 mins from Big Trees where we attended a wedding. Great time can’t wait to go back.
Pros: Room simplicity and location
Cons: I expected that bedding will be changed every day, not only towels.
Pros: The room is very small for two people to move around and not bump into each other. There are only two hooks to hang clothes and one folding luggage chair which barely fits into a space by the door. There is an air conditioner of some sort just outside room 12 that turns on at night and runs until morning, very loud! Street noise is also very loud. There should be side table lamps, not just overhead lighting that is piercing and does not provide ambience. Refrigerator is low to the ground and the size hardly worth the space it takes up under a counter.
Cons: Improve upon the complaints listed above

Pros: Location was easy to find and right on the 4 Highway. Very close to Murphy's and Calveras Big Trees. Room was warm, clean and tastefully furnished. Staff were also very helpful and friendly.
Cons: Unfortunately, the walls of the Timberline Lodge are seriously paper thin. Wow, could hear audibly every word of our neighboring room's conversations as if they were right in the room with us. Coughing, sneezing, laughing, watching TV etc could hear everything. Wish the sound proofing was better!

Cons: Room kind of small for the price
Pros: Bed was a nice size king bed. However, it randomly vibrates and there us no control switch.zRoom temperature controlled by fireplace. Nice touch.

Cons: Very basic room, old carpet, very small for 4 people. We left and simply went home.
Pros: Think of it as a version of hostelling but for all demographics - from single adults to families with adolescent children. If you aren't chatting with the other guests you are missing out.
