Our grandkids enjoyed running around looking for Big Foot. Very scenic drive. The grandkids got sick from the drive. have some Dramamine on hand. The river running near by was beautiful would be very pleasant to just sit and watch.

Room Tip: didn't have a TV. no phone reception either. which is fine for us.

We loved our stay here. This hotel is at the end of the park road. Beautiful scenery! It was definitely the prettiest drive in the park. The hotel was very clean and simple, but the walls were extremely thin. The best thing about the hotel was the river running right along side. It was great to sit by and have a picnic at the tables. At night we left our window open to listen to the roaring sound. The building runs with its end to the river instead of the rooms facing the river. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Get there early, the rooms are given out on a first come basis. They start assigning them on the end...

Cedar Grove is in a very unique area and also very remote. Considering the remoteness, it was a lovely surprise. The scenery driving to the motel was spectacular. We enjoyed several hikes including Mist Falls, Lookout Mountain and the Hotel Creek/Lewis Creek Loop.

Room Tip: We always choose the upper floor to cut down on noise.

Scenery driving to hotel and at hotel breathtaking. Many hiking trails available to satisfy different levels of fitness. Food acceptable but basic. Hotel clean and staff friendly and professional. Bring games to play at night if hiking hasn't worn you out. Would definitely go back.

This is the second time we have stayed here in 2 years and we stayed in room 21 - Patio room both times. We love the location and that's why we chose here over the actual accommodation. The room is perfectly fine but they need to attend to the little things like the lights above the bed missing the glass screen so the bulbs are exposed and on top of your head. It would really improve overall impressions if things like that were attended to.
We couldn't get a wifi signal as that was out but that didnt concern us too much, it might others.
The food from the fast food counter was surprisingly nice and much appreciated after a long day. We forgot that there was a microwave as we could have brought our own healthier food.

Room Tip: The Patio room is nice but sitting out will mean you get eaten by the mosquitos!

Wonderful experience! Really out of the way. If you find yourself staying at Cedar Grove in Kings Canyon, you were really trying to have this type of experience, as it is not one of those places you stumble upon easily. If you enjoy the challenge of getting to the end of the road and appreciate nature, go for it! The glacier formed canyon is similar to Yosemite, without the crowds and the amenities. If you prefer gourmet dining, I would recommend the nearby Sequoia Wuksachi Lodge, instead.

Cedar Grove Lodge is the only non-camping accommodation in the actual canyon of Kings Canyon National Park. While it was built along the magnificent Kings River, it was situated so that only 4 of the rooms face the river - a real design error. The accommodations are clean, but minimal. There is a small restaurant and a store where you can purchase food, some camping equipment, and Kings Canyon t-shirts. The hotel was just taken over by the Delaware North company which I understand is planning to make improvements in the property. The Delaware North employee that we met was courteous, helpful and professional. Kings Canyon is a gem visually and a wonderful place to camp, hike, horseback ride and relax.

Room Tip: Pay a little more when you book your room and ask for a room facing the river.
