Pushing 80, my mid-fifties daughter and son and I did our second five-day backpacking trek together, Rae Lakes Loop, starting and ending at Cedar Grove Lodge stays. The facility provided just what we needed, a relaxed informal beautiful setting to jump off and return to with fellow hikers. The management and staff couldn't have been nicer in helping us with...

Our family trip to see the giant sequpia trees was a wondeful experience and glad we stayed at Cedar Grove Lodge. The lodge is very family friendly and a great place to get away from everything (including internet). The trails are easily located and the guided tours very educational. We found the food at the lodge convenient and not too... More

Affordable place to stay in the middle of Sequoiapark. Rooms are small but comfortable beds. What I liked most was the quietness -sleep with the window open and hear nothing but the river running... WiFi did not work but I did not expect it to work in such a remote place.

Beautiful setting by the river. However arrival was quite confusing with a peculiar scramble by the staff on check-in. The cafeteria is definitely limited and the food a bit of a "last resort." The place is basic and aged, with thin walls and worn fixtures, but the beds were comfortable and the staff were mostly earnest if quirky. Nonetheless, I... More

We stayed here since this is the only lodge in kings canyon national park. The lodge definately needs some maintenance. Old can be charming, but in this case it means dirty and not taken care off. We don't want luxury when staying in the wilderness, but we do expect some level of quality when paying 130USD per night, even in... More

Good day - Sorry to hear that you had such a poor experience at Cedar Grove. You are correct it is such a lovely location and we just took over as the management company of this property and have some great plans for remodeling for the 2015 season. While remodeling is always a good thing- cleanliness and good food should... More

We slept in a patio room and could hear the river at night. Very soothing and very relaxing. The hotel manager really understands hospitality and she was a delight. While the menu is limited, we enjoyed our meals at the restaurant. A great stay!

Very old lodge that definitely needs some upkeep and updating. AC was off for a day and spotty at other times. They did give me a credit for the inconvenience. We had a bottom room which had a patio and fridge and micro which is good to have. One day we did not have maid service by 4:30 and had... More

Our grandkids enjoyed running around looking for Big Foot. Very scenic drive. The grandkids got sick from the drive. have some Dramamine on hand. The river running near by was beautiful would be very pleasant to just sit and watch.
