Me and my girlfriend stayed at this lodge one night and had the most amazing time! The area in which this lodge is situated, by the banks of a lake in the midst of the Sequoia National Forest, is simply breathtaking! The lodge offers the opportunity for many activities that include paddle boating and kayaking on the lake which is... More

Finding family vacations that are affordable and fun for all the ages in our family, 4 boys ranging from 6-16, can be difficult. Going to Montecito Sequoia Lodge for our vacation this year had absolutely EXCEEDED my expectations. We found the rooms in the lodge PERFECT for our large family as they were rustic, many beds with adjoining rooms for... More

Our trip to Montecito Sequoia exceeded even the best reviews on TripAdvisor! The physical beauty of the location was spectacular. Equally beautiful was the warmth and fun-loving spirit of the staff and the other families in residence. It was amazing to be offered so many activities to enjoy and learn, and also have the option to just relax. I loved... More

The lake is so beautiful and the location is excellent, but they don't have house keeping. They don't clean the guest rooms. My daughter didn't want to take a shower because bathtub and shower curtain were so filthy. All towels, pillow cases, and sheets were all dark green and make it hard to tell if they are clean or not.... More

We went with kids to the Summer Family Camp, and judging by a few bad reviews, were prepared to grin and bear it. IT WAS FANTASTIC! The hotel is a lodge. It is not a 4-star hotel. But it was clean and comfortable, and so much better than camping, even in an RV. I heard that they constantly are upgrading:... More

Montecito Sequoia Lodge is a camp (lodge style) in an absolutely beautiful scenic area of Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park. The word "hotel" doesn't do it justice. It is much more than that. It is a TERRIFIC place to spend family together time with many special activities planned for the entire family. We recently had our 5th wheel in need... More

When planning my trip to Montecito Sequoia the first time, I was confused by the mixed reviews. After my family stayed 4 nights in May 2007, I was shocked that anyone could say anything bad about this resort- until our second visit the following year. Our first trip was over Memorial Day weekend. The weather warm (although not warm enough... More

Can't argue with the location - right in the middle of the national park. The immediate surroundings are also very beautiful with a picturesque lake and plenty of trails to walk on. But the inside area of the main lodge is absolutely filthy bordering unsanitary conditions - old dirty carpet and kitchen floors, unsightly arrangement for the used kitchen utensils,... More
