As far as I know, many people who visit Sequoia/Kings canyon don't come to this area. If you book a room here, you are commited to driving the dead-end 30-mile 1 hour winding road. But, seriously, this is the most beautiful drive in all of Sequoia and Kings Canyon. And the trails in this area are the most beautiful for day hikers. Zumwalt meadow is an easy hike in the area, offering views similar to Yosemites. To be fair, the rocks aren't as dramatic as Yosemites, but the lack of crowd gives it a different feeling. This is definitely my favorite place in Sequoia/Kings Canyon.
The room is very clean. Yes, the walls are paper thin. There is quite hour policy in place 10pm-7am. Though, at exactly 7am, you'll hear a lot of noise. Our room was directly above the snack-bar. In the morning, every time someone enters or leaves the snack-bar by opening the door, some kind of AC in the snack bar kicks off, and makes a huge noise. So, try to avoid the rooms directly above the snack bar.
The place closes at 8PM. So, you must be here before 8pm to check-in! The food at the snack bar is not bad. The server is very friendly. Of course, if you stay at Grant Grove, then John Muir has a real restaurant.
