“Lovely location, but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We always enjoy staying in cabins or lodges when we visit national parks, so we looked forward to our stay here. The location is a wooded area that has a nice meadow nearby where we watched multiple deer. Of course being in nature can cause a couple issues one might not encounter elsewhere. We had to deal with an aggressive raccoon that didn't seem to like us sitting on the cabin's deck. Once we chased it off it was quite enjoyable to sit out and marvel at the night sky. Once we went to bed we realized the catch and release trap in our cabin had been successful in its job--made it difficult to fall asleep until we found an employee to properly take and release the critter elsewhere. After that it was a nice restful night.

My friend and I stayed at The Grant Grove cabins in June 2014 which was part of a 14 day road trip around the center of California and we were happy with our stay - The cabin itself was very clean and cubby... We had one of the cabins that don't have a bathroom but the actual bathrooms were fine. The showers were AWFUL! There was only ONE that was open to at least 20 other women for the 2 days we were there (the other two were out of service!). Unfortunately, we never showered fully and we washed our feet and hair in the sink outside of the bathroom! We had dinner in the restaurant which was the worst experience I've ever had at a restaurant in my life! but I'll save that review for the actual restaurant - The best thing about the whole experience was the store that is on the premise - Since we had to leave our dinner at the Grant grove restaurant we had to eat meat and cheese from the store on our side porch.. BUT we made the best of it - We had a fire each night and we bought hot dogs and buns from the store (and beer!) - Its close to most attractions, but next time I'll just stay in Sequoia National park because that's where we spent all of our time. I'm only giving it 3 stars because we LOVED the room, it was extremely clean which we appreciated a lot and the bed was very comfortable.

Room Tip: Just plan on not showering if you want to stay in the cabins.

We stayed in the tent cabins. For $60 they provided a nice cabin building with a secure tent roof. Two double beds, very spacious. The bath house was a small walk away but not bad. No electricity in the tent cabins.

Going up the mountain was an awesome experience in its self. Wow! The curvy roads were in great condition and the views were incredible! At the end, we were over 6,000 feet above the ocean! The stay at the cabins was wonderful, exactly as its was describe in their site. The park is an incredible experience for all ages.

Room Tip: Ask for a cabin close to the common bathroom.

Pros
-excellent location at Grant grove, equal distance to Cedar grove and Sequoia Giant forest
-pretty location and layout
-very friendly and helpful staff

Cons
-Despite the cost of the cabins, you still have to pay for the shower
-Not sufficient number of showers (3) and toilets (1 working one) for the cabin area
-No fridge in the cabin
-It was pretty cold at night at the end of June and we did not dare to ignite the ancient looking gas heater
-wifi in the lobby was OK, but only one couch was not inviting or sufficient for guest
-no cell coverage (for most) and the public phone don't work
-general store poorly stocked

Room Tip: If you can afford it choose one of the lodges/hotels

Grant Grove cabins are great. Charming and clean in a beautiful setting. The housekeeping staff was terrific. Cheerful and friendly. They really cared about taking care of the guests. The reservation office staff seemed distracted and confused. We rented three cabins for three nights several months in advance with repeated follow up requests to be placed next to each other. The explanations as to why they didn't accommodate the request varied depending on who we talked to. One of cars was running dangerously low on gas and the reception person didn't seem to know that emergency gas was available at the lodge. We ended up sending a second car all the way to Hume Lake to purchase a gas can for $18.00 plus $10.00 for 2 gallons of gas. The dining room was clearly understaffed and the quality of the food mediocre at best.

Room Tip: The lodge area just across the meadow from the cabins is noisy with beverage machine, air conditione...

We rented tent cabin, much cheaper option vs cabin.
The location was right next to the parking lot, a big plus.
We were given a lantern at front desk, another plus
the cabin has 2 double beds, and you can fit a cot between for 5th person.
You also get a shelf drawer...no need for it for us.
We stayed 3 nights, plenty of good sleep.
There are few Sequioas on property and bunch of big rocks for kids to climb.
The visitor center, restaurant, local market are short walk away.
We were very satisfied with our stay.
Bathrooms need TLC, but we are tough campers,it did not bother us.

Room Tip: cabin 303 was close to the parking, you might want to ask about the cabin you are getting, some cab...
