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

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.

Right in the middle of that area, it helps as base camp for many excursions. The lodge is well kept and ensures a convinient and comfortable stay. Useful and well positioned location to enjoy walking and visiting the sequoia forest and the broader sierra region. Walking in the wild requires guidance and attention, staying on the main trekking routes seems... More

We stayed here for one night on a trip that also included Yosemite and Death Valley. The room was very comfortable with a bathroom that appeared to have been recently remodeled. Very nice lobby with free wifi and balconies with rockers. We purchased the package that included the breakfast buffet. The buffet included any breakfast food that you could want.... More

Having had less than perfect accommodation at Housekeeping Camp in Yosemite the preceding day (uninterested staff, a ripped cot-bed), we were worried that John Muir Lodge might be similar. The contrast could not have been starker. The bedrooms and common areas were just what we wanted, the setting was perfect and not overcrowded and the staff were welcoming and helpful.... More

Check in at the registration desk near the village gift shop and then take the short drive up the road to the lodge. Muir Lodge is an attractive building and has a nice community ambiance. As you enter there are slide rockers and chairs on the front porch. The great room is inviting with a fireplace and scattered seating areas... More
