great location- right on the kings river. make sure to pay just a little extra to have one of the 3 bottom rooms that face the river. the room was small, clean, and used only for the location. absolutely gorgeous surroundings- the room itself? meh. you can't beat it though. (there isn't much else there!) i didn't like how the... More

Yes, electricity does go out at times, but who cares. The staff is wonderful and serves up plenty of food from the microwave during these times. The rooms are dated but very clean. Beautiful breezes or a/c. Scenery getting there is definitely worth the trip. This is not a Hyatt, but certainly MUCH better in so many other ways. A... More

Great location if you are visiting the cedar grove area of the park. Rooms were big, very clean. Cafeteria was not the greatest ! Though given the remote location of this place, food was pretty cheap. They even provide complimentary coffee during breakfast ! Check in time is 4.00PM. When I visited, there was no one in the reception before... More

We loved it here! It stands in such beautiful location right next to King's river. You can hear the water flowing at night if you keep the window open. Short drive to many awesome trails in Kings Canyon. We spent 3 days here, but we were so sad to leave. We will definitely come back! Snack bar was really yummy... More

Let me qualify this by saying I stayed here at end of season...I mean the very last days of operation. I believe that has influence over my experience in some ways. Let me start with registration. Check-In starts at 4pm sharp - no earlier. The gal who handled the registration was friendly. My critique is not about her, it's about... More

Cedar Grove Lodge is in one of the most beautiful locations I can think of. It's great that there is a hotel to stay at way out in King's Canyon, and I'm grateful we were able to find a room there. The accommodations were very dirty and outdated, however. I would have preferred driving into King's Canyon for the day,... More

Accommodations at CGL are adequate given the stunning beauty of Kings Canyon, but cosmetic updating of the lodge would be appreciated. Spent one night and found the staff to be welcoming. The food choices at the snack bar were quite tasty and served its purpose: nourishment to get out and see more of the surroundings. Rooms are quite dated and... More

Our arrival was great as we were met by a helpful gal named Diane who made us feel welcome and appreciated. We'd raced the clock to get to the hotel by 9:00pm, but Diane said that she'd always wait for everyone to arrive before she headed out for the night - which showed us immediately that the Cedar Grove had...

This lodge is located deep inside Kings Canyon. Had a room facing the river and the staff was positive and helpful. It is "rustic" but comfortable. There are many trails nearby. It is located about an hour from Grants Grove and another hour to Sequoia National Park. Spent 4 days here and did lots of hiking. Would recommend bringing some... More

Don't set expectations too high! Cedar Grove Lodge is decent value for money, I suppose, when compared to other options in the parks system. It has a wonderfully tranquil location next to Kings River, though, it does need an overhaul & a deep cleaning. Request a river-view deluxe room, which happens to have a mini-fridge unlike our parking lot view,... More
