We stopped here on our way back from a hike before getting to our campsite in Lodgepole. We saw they had pizza. So we thought we'd treat ourselves and save cooking on the grill for one night. There was only 1 table seated, eating. A couple in from of us waiting for a cashier. After 5 minutes, I told them... More

Extremely loud! The rooms are small and have no fridge or microwave. The showers are always cold. Front desk staff treated us very poorly and didn't bother to look at their paper work to verify our reservation and gave us the shoulder shrug. Extremely unpleasant. It is filled with screaming kids that will not let you sleep at night. The... More

We would strongly advise anyone to save their hard earned money and avoid this overpriced dump. Either rough it and camp or stay at the infinitely superior Watsuchi Lodge down the road. Sequoia National park is stunning but everything else sucks about the grandly and misleadingly named Stony Creek Lodge. The staff at reception were utterly bored and managed to... More

I was scared to stay in this place after reading the numerous negative reviews. Once we were in our room, (strongly scented with air freshener that was not very appealing) I was appalled to find it was just adjacent to the guest "lounge," the gift store/grocery (that has everything you need for your visit to Sequoia), and then right outside...

So the first impression I had of our room was the smell of urine that engulfed you the moment you stepped inside. I smelled like someone had peed on the rug the night before we got there. Once we kept the windows open and sprayed some perfume it seemed to subside but it was down right disgusting. I wouldn't walk... More

This is a convenience store with two gas pumps and some rooms on the second floor. The "restaurant" is open for pizza, 6-7PM. That's it. The front desk closes at 7PM. The building is run down, including the rooms. They tell you that hot water takes 15 minutes to get to the room in the morning. Room prices, for what... More

This facility really doesn't have that much going for it other than its location. It IS located between Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Park, that should be your main reason for deciding to stay here. We stayed here for two nights and had a nice oppurtunity to explore both National Parks without the long drives back and forth... More

The most disappointing stop-over during our 15 day trip and we were expecting more for the price we paid. The lodge accomodation was severely lacking with poorly furnished rooms with paper thin wall - we could clearly hear every word, sneeze and snore from the guests in the next room! The dormatory style set-up was totally inadequate and not too... More

We spent so much time out and about in the park we only needed a comfortable place to stay the nights during our 4 day trip, and this was just perfect. I just had to use the extra blanket to make the bed comfortable enough for me, but my husband slept fine without the extra padding.

I'll start off by saying that I preferred the nearby Montecito Sequoia Lodge, but if you aren't into the kid/family dynamic, then this is your place for a comparable price. If this place was not where it was and so convenient to Kings Canyon and Sequoia, it would be in the 2-3 star range. Having said that, it is a... More
