There are practically zero hotels and restaurants in the park---and that is just fine with me. The lodge is a series of large and small cabins around a main lodge building. The main building has some rooms but, most importantly, the buffet style meals are served here for all the guests. One never knows who will sit down at your table and that's part of the fun. The rooms are fairly basic but comfortable. Most importantly the location and views are fantastic. I would return in a heartbeat.

I stayed here for two nights while visiting the national parks. The location in relation to Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks literally can't be beat, and the price was reasonable for the location and the fact that meals are included - a key amenity since there are hardly any other food options in the National Park area. The Lodge facilities cover a large area and include many activities that are mainly geared toward families with kids, as families are a significant portion of their clientele. There's a beautiful lake at the site as well. Check-in was smooth, and although the parking area is a bit far from the rooms, it was possible to unload (and later load) cars at a much closer spot before re-parking them in the main parking area. My room was in the Sugarpine Lodge building, a few hundred feet from the main lodge. The room was small but efficient, with a comfortable bed - as well as a bunk bed for families - and a large bathroom. There was a mini-fridge/freezer, microwave, and coffeemaker in the room. I found that the gas wall furnace wasn't working when I checked into my room, and notified the front desk clerk when I went to the main lodge building for dinner, and they fixed the issue by the time I got back to my room (pilot needed to be lit). After that, the furnace worked fine, which was important since it got below freezing at night in mid-October - glad I brought an ice scraper for my car windows in the mornings! There are no TVs in the rooms at Montecito Sequoia, and there is no cell service there. They do have wifi, though it was rather weak and intermittent in my room. However, the wifi in the main lodge building proved to be much better. One of the daily activities is a casual wine and cheese hour at the main lodge's spacious lounge room. Another was an after-dinner campfire and s'mores. Dinners and breakfasts in the large dining room were surprisingly good - I missed lunch there as I was on the road in the national parks. It's all buffet-style, with plenty of options, including a big salad bar at dinnertime. I really have to hand it to the staff for cooking up such good meals for a large number of people. The tables are all large, which encourages sitting with other people staying at the lodge, and it was fun to talk with several couples and groups who had come there from other parts of the US as well as from other countries. Beer or wine is extra at dinner, but reasonably priced - I got a bottle of Tioga Sequoia Brewing General Sherman IPA both nights I had dinner at the lodge, and it was quite nice. Overall, I was really pleased with my stay at the Montecito Sequoia Lodge. While I know I didn't take full advantage of the many activities there (since so many are family / kid oriented and I was traveling solo) and it's not a particularly cheap stay given the somewhat rustic accommodations, I still felt I got fine value considering the unbeatable location and fun mealtimes. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

A last minute find that was very charming. We stayed in a cabin that was just beds. Our bath house was a very short trek to another building. Breakfast, lunch and dinner served in the main building. Buffet with shared tables. The food was delicious with an unexpected variety. Salad bar was very good. There were leftovers in the kitchen should you miss a meal and want to heat something up on your own. S'mores by the fire, a lake with canoes and a beach to play/dig on. Wine and cheese each evening pre-dinner. Very friendly, helpful staff with a variety of activities for all ages each day. The wifi was good at the main building but you are without any signal anywhere else. When We repeat this trip to see the areas we didn't get to, we will stay here again.

A great all around experience. Particularly fun to watch families and children enjoying themselves with almost no sign of video games. Our accomodations were very nice and we enjoyed wine and cheese every night as well as "communal dining" during which we met some very interesting people. We would definitely return.

We stayed here for three nights in September 2019, some of the rooms/cabins have shared bathrooms but ours had a private bath, which was big and functional with plenty of hot water, nice toiletries and big squishy towels. The room had a kingsize bed and two bunkbeds, a coffeemaker and plenty of room for storing clothes etc. The main lodge was a wonderful experience, table football, table tennis, board games, books, television (although I never saw it being used) and a bar which hosted a free wine and cheese tasting every evening. The food was plentiful and freshly prepared each day, three meals to which you could help yourself, and if you were hiking you could help yourself to make up a lunch. The views were awesome - enough said. Theres a swimming pool, and a hot tub. Each night a bonfire with s'mores for the kids. I believe in high season they have quizzes and party games but not while we were there. The staff were without exception helpful and charming. All in all it brought back memories of a simpler time, happy memories. It felt safe. Yes it was a bit 'tired' after the summer months but it was none the less charming and I wouldn't hesitate to return.
