We stayed at Stony Creek lodge three nights at the end of July 2012. The room was large (for two persons we had two queen beds plus one small bed) and clean; the only thing we missed was a fridge. The stuff was helpful and kind. The breakfast basic but food eatable. We visited restaurant to eat pizza once.
Many people here complained about furniture etc. We found rooms comfortable and perfectly adequate for several nights. I recommend to take a room facing north in the summer because the south facing rooms were hot at the end of the day.
The Lodge is an easy and enjoyable 30 minutes drive to both Sequoia Lodgepole and King's Grant Village. The location is perfect but staying in Wuksachi Lodge would be better as most of attractions are near Lodgepole. We once ate dinner at Wuksachi lodge.
The Lodge's small store has basic supplies but is expensive (as in other national parks). Thus, a fridge would be very useful. That's our only serious complaint in addition to the room price which was high in the summer, but there really is not much choice in Sequoia. Staying in Grant Village would place you 1 hour drive from Lodgepole which is too far. The same for the Three Rivers.
We would also appreciate a possibility to walk near the lodge after the diner. As it is, there are no trails in the immediate vicinity that we know of and the only possibility was to walk along the main road, which is not a good idea, or toward the camping site.
We saw several deers nearby and on the parking lot of the lodge. The nights were quite and we felt safe.
We would stay there again.
