The location and drive down King's Canyon is amazing. However, the lodge is below average at above average rates (perhaps typical for many NPS properties). There aren't any other lodging options in the Cedar Grove area. Our room was very basic with thin walls (could hear the guy in the next room snoring), drab decor and a very simple bathroom. The bed was acceptable and the room was clean. There was intermittent wifi access (a bonus as I didn't think it would be available).
The staff wasn't overly friendly (with one exception) and services close rather early. There is a basic cafeteria with high prices and limited hours. The indoor seating area was no better than that of a Taco Bell. A general store is present with a decent selection of goods.
In summary, a substandard property in a beautiful area. I will probably check out camping sites in the area for my next visit.
