This lodge is located at the heart of Kings Canyon. I would give 5 star for its location, but I would like to give no star for how they operate the business.
Here's my experience..
After an hour of twisted mountain drive, I was told by hotel manager that the hotel was overbooked and there are no room available for my family to stay.
I made confirmation call the day before the trip. I also had confirmation letter from the hotel saying that a room is reserved for two nights stay in CedarGrove Lodge. However, regardless of all the confirmation they gave me beforehand.. they simply had no room to give out. They were explaining that there was mistake in their system, and they found the mistake couple hours before my arrival.
According to the manager, only thing they can offer me was in Grant Grove area, 30 miles back the way I came from.. going through twisted mountain drive AGAIN.
I asked if this was first time they are making mistake like this. His answer was 'yes'. And he's fully aware of problem in their reservation system.
Since I didn't get to stay at the hotel, I wouldn't know how their normal room service is.. But, if anyone is considering to stay at this hotel, you better prepare to find out surprise at last minute. It certainly ruined my vacation plan in Kings Canyon.
