One should tamper expectation when staying at a national park lodging. Expect high prices given the location at similar level of comfort. No exception when it comes to this location. Downside particular to this building (main lodge) is you can hear the noise (shower, flushing toilet, heater in winter) from your neighbors and even possibly the whole building. It bothered my wife a lot and me to a limited extent. Also there were a lot of family with young kids and expect a lot of children noise. I was there with my own young children so that didnt bother me too much.
If you want to escape the cabin fever, lobby has lots of puzzles and rocking chairs with a small fireplace. Oh gotta mention the restaurant: slowest service and not-so-good but edible food. We ate there 3 times as choice is really limited and it was painfully slow. But again unless u wanna cook at the picnic area or want to settle for instant cuponoodle, what choice do u have?
Wuksachi lodge in sequoia is nicer but 40 min farther away from Grant Grove and this time we wanted to make GG a central location for our trip. Limit your expectation on food quality/service time/night time noise and you will enjoy your stay.
