We were planning to goto Sequoia and was looking for a place to stay which is closer to the park. Stony Creek fits the bill perfectly. It's 20-30 min from the major attractions and situated in the edge of the park. The accommodation was basic and they had free WiFi. The rooms were clean and Spartan. We could not find... More

Stony Creek Lodge is a quaint, cozy little lodge on the main drag of General’s Highway. It’s nestled in the forest; the lodge is in an ideal location – about 10 miles from the Kings Canyon entrance and about 10 miles from Sequoia’s big trees. Don’t let the rustic charm of this place fool you. The rooms are small, with... More

Great Location, friendly staff and would stay here again. Easily booked a room for one night online, a little expensive but figured it would be worth it being so close, especially on the Memorial holiday weekend. It would have been nice for the automated email confirmation to include the address and check-in time. Make sure you call (before you get... More

Quite expensive for what you get. Room is small, outdated and very basis (not even a chair). However a tv with lots of channels, that you ofcourse hopefully don't need while you want to enjoy either Sequoia of Kings Canyon which are both beautiful. We arrived at 7, the front desk was already closed and our key was taped to... More

The room offers quite a lot despite it being a lodge. Even toiletries. There is no hair dryer because of electrical issues. But front desk has one. Water takes 15 minutes to get hot, if you are the first in the house in the morning. A dated interior, but ads to the charm of a lodge. The place closes at... More

Nothing special about the place. It's a pretty typical, small, and budget-quality lodge you'd expect to find in a U.S. National Park. Service is casually adequate and the staff is friendly. It's conveniently located near many of the trails and sightseeing spots. Great for early morning hikes before all the tourists from outside the park arrive. Has a self-service gasoline... More

If you are thinking of staying here don't. We recently stayed here for one night. We arrived late in the evening when no one was on site. Our key was taped to the front door with instructions. When we went to our room we found that the bedding and pillowcases were dirty. The pillowcases had something that looked like blood... More

If the price was not so high (405$ for two nights taxes and breakfast included), it could be a place to recommend visiting the Kings Canyon. It’s a strange place, the location is quite perfect, you can have dinner for about 10$, the service is ok, but for this price you expect a better room.

What an absolutely stunning location and backdrop. Sequoia is a magical place and I would recommend anyone to go there. Just don't stay at stoney creek lodge. Where do I start, the young girl on the front desk, we got there about 3pm. First words not hello or how are you, but checkin is at 4. Just to make sure... More
