“The views were spectacular!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

This is a place worth driving to. You will decent to the lowest area of Sequoia and will get really beautiful views. Near the end you will pass Grizzly Falls which can be very active in the spring.

“Worth the extra time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

This is not on the Main Generals Highway. It is at the end of a 30 mile stretch of winding mountain roads. But it is worth it. You will want to have reservations before you get here. The rooms are ok and the AC doesn't work great, but it is cool at night even in Summer time. Nice and quiet and lots of trailheads nearby even for just day hikes. You will want to bring food, the only food available closes around 8. They provide free water refills, you cannot drink the tap water. The store and restaurant do not rip you off like in other parks.

“Village? It's one building.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

If you head towards the "road's end" in kings canyon, 7 miles before the end you reach cedar grove 'village'. It's a single building with perhaps 20 rooms on the second floor with a corridor down the middle plus a store and eatery on the first floor. The store cashiers are the hotel clerks and work the eatery too. On the plus side it sits near a clear cold scenic river and the store is well stockade and the food at the eatery is surprisingly good. On the downside, if you are looking for comfort and pampering this is not the place. However its a good break after an hour of curves and hairpins on the winding kings canyon road.

“Good place to stock up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Visitor's center with helpful rangers and supply store. And who doesn't appreciate over 4 bucks for a bag of ice! Pizza place open late.

“A park lodge you can afford.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

All the basics embedded deep in the canyon. Snack bar/restaurant with dining both inside and out.

The only “major” shortcomings were the paper-thin walls (combined with noisy neighbors) and that the food service and office didn’t open until 8:00 a.m. (or after, as it turned out). For a facility that serves people most likely to be up with the sun, it seemed strange to not have any coffee or other services until after most people were on the trails.

But you are deep in one of the prettiest places in the country. What more could you ask for?
