We recently took an extended trip through California and Oregon visiting National Parks. I like to stay in the actual park and not try to “commute” from outside the park. For Kings Canyon, I chose John Muir Lodge. John Muir Lodge met our basic needs but was not one of my favorite locations. Our rooms were clean and nicely decorated... More

For a corporate organization like Delaware Northern, they seemed have done a good job. They did a good job in scheduling their staff people employed at Sequoia, They solicited this response after asking us to comment on Travel Advisor our thoughts on our stay.. I do want to say t heir survey was one-sided, i.e., their survey was to meet... More

This lodge isn't cheap, but it's the nicest in-park lodge I've ever stayed at. I think it's less than 15 years old and it shows. It's modern, clean, and comfortable with a TV, phone, and fridge (not common in park lodging). There is wi-fi, but it's only in the lobby (and probably in the rooms closest to the lobby, too)....

The trip was wonderful. Loved the scenery and all the tall trees. Took cave tour and it was really nice. The mountains and valleys were beautiful. Wished we would have seen some wild animals. Did see some deer one morning while having coffee outside the lodge.

We arrived here after a long trip and hike in Sequoia national park. We got checked in by a guy who seemed to be in a hurry and didn't have time for us. At that moment we got told we even had to pay for the showers, but oh well. When we got to the cabin, we noticed it was... More

Stayed in one of the 8 cabins for 1 night. Cabin looks a bit ran down from the outside but is clean and well maintained from the inside. It has a small porche and in the morning i daw deer running around. There is a restaurant onsite with decent food . Wifi doesnt reach the cabins.

My husband and I spent one night at the Lodge. It was a clean room simple but everything you needed was there. The buffet breakfast was quite good and there was fruit to take with you as you left. A pleasant experience.

You can walk to everything or grab a shuttle. If stairs are an issue, request a first floor room. Good location to base out of to see the area. The staff was excellent. Dinners were great, breakfast was diner level. If you are looking for more modern rooms, stay in the Wuksachi Lodge, if your looking for character, this is... More

We are in the first leg of our trip here in Kings canyon and staying the night at the John Muir Lodge. I reviewed prior to reservations and reserved a 2nd floor room, newly renovated and facing West and the woods, not the parking lot. Our room is nice and you can tell it's been redone. So far it is...

We had an amazing time, it is a beautiful area, and a well kept lodge. The staff was great, always willing to help out. The room was clean and well stocked towels and toiletries. I would have given a 5 but the breakfast buffet was awful.
