“good location, lovely setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

John Muir lodge is very pleasant and a great way to enjoy the real sequoia. It is simple but nice and is in a good location in grant grove village, with various good food options around, including a small supermarket.

This is a great rustic way to enjoy the Sequoia National Park. We used the package option and first enjoyed the BBQ Dinner. Upon arriving check-in was very smooth - as was check-out. We were very impressed with the lodge building and the rustic feel of the furnishings. It made for a great evening to go for a walk to further enjoy the natural beauty and then return to the "log cabin feel" lodge. Very clean, employees were very friendly, and the scenery can't be beat. Be sure to note the lack of TV or air conditioning if those are "must haves" for you. Otherwise, it is a great way to stay in the park!

This hotel was clean and quite. The best part is the location. It is minutes away from several nice hiking trails within the sequoia forest in the Grant Grove area. The staff was friendly and helpful.

The hotel is about to go under a major renovation. It is clean and quiet. It needs a facelift. I think considering the lodge in Cedar Grove, this hotel is overpriced. It does not have an air conditioner in the rooms.

If you come up from Three Rivers, you can get a hike in before getting to the lodge. The drive and trail behind the lodge is surprisingly nice, with a fantastic view at the end. The lodge looks a little like a nice nursing home in the hallways, but the rooms are quite nice. The lounge is cozy, and the porches are great.

When you are not in a hurry, live here and enjoy the sweet air and quietness. Reach the Panoramic Point for a sunrise panorama, and visit the giant trees. The meadows scattered around are also breath taking.

Room Tip: Just any room. Pick one on ground floor if you have heavy luggages.

Good location in the entrance to the park make a day in the park a much easier and enjoyable visit. Woke up early and refreshed for a day of sightseeing and hiking. Excellent lodging and amenities for a park.

Room Tip: reserve early to get a room
