Cannot speak highly enough of Montecito Sequoia Lodge. We were so pleased we booked this accommodation which is inside the park as it's a long drive in and out. We had a beautiful corner room looking out over snow-capped mountains. It was spacious and clean. The big surprise was the 3 meals a day all included in the price. We'd like to make special mention of the chefs who excelled on all 4 days of our stay by producing a different selection of dishes at every meal, plus....if we were unable to eat in for lunch, an enormous packed lunch was supplied. We stayed in May, so just after the ski season and before the school camps, so the place was fairly quiet. However we loved the communal eating and enjoyed meating people and chatting around the tables and around the huge log fire. The staff were constantly on the go but always pleasant and friendly. This is a brilliant place to stay to explore both Sequoia and Kings Canyon. This was our first trip to California from Australia and we were blown away by the spectacular scenery. Visit General Sherman Tree, Mono Rock, and walk the Kings Canyone river loop walk. Lots to do and see.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room with mountain views.

In a nutshell, this is a school camp - the main lodge has slightly tired accommodation in an unflattering colour scheme, but you get a good sized room with queen bed, and a bathroom with a shower and bathtub.

The best thing about this place is that it's chilled out, there are activities for children and adults, and all meals are included. The food was variable - pretty mediocre on the first night, but very good on the second and third night that we stayed.

Its much better value off-peak - it was $169 on Saturday night and $109 on Sunday and Monday night. Almost everybody here has young children - this is not really the place for a romantic getaway.

The main rooms include comfy sofas, fires, table tennis tables, table football and play-mats for young children with lego and other toys. There is free wifi throughout the lodge.

The worst thing was that the common areas were a bit dirty - the floor in the main room looked as if it could do with a good mopping - nevertheless we enjoyed our stay - extended it by a night and would recommend it to others with children.

Stayed here with a friend recently. We came mainly for the cross-country skiing which was excellent. Well groomed and maintained trails with excellent snow conditions. We skiied both days and loved it. The food was abundant and good with a plenty options. Staff was friendly and helpful. Don't come here unless you like kids. It's definitely geared towards families. They have lots of winter activities and classes for all levels. The only drawback was the room was subpar. The sheets were clean and the bed comfortable but the room could have used a good scrubbing. The water pressure was super low in the shower and bathroom faucet. Since we were there for only one night, it was manageable. This is not meant to be a fancy resort style but I would have preferred a cleaner room. Don't come here if you are looking for a quiet place to relax as the kids are all over the place. They seemed to be having a ball. Again, this is a great unpretentious place to bring your kids. They will get to experience fun and recreation like the generation before them grew up with. They offered a yoga class on Sunday morning which was taught by a visiting instructor from the coast. The class was excellent and a great complement to our ski activities. Will definitely come back here to ski. Not sure about staying overnight.

This has turned into a family winter tradition! This is one of our most favorite vacations every year...the rooms are spacious and CLEAN...the food is gourmet!...the scenery....well if you have to ask, you won't understand...a little pricey before Christmas, but after the new year, prices drop dramatically...We do miss the old owners, as they were so nice, you felt like they were family...they new owners are great and helpful too!...last year we got in late due to a blizzard and being escorted in...The owner made sure they left the dinner food out so we could all get a hot meal (delicious by the way)...did I mention the 24 hour pantry?...hot chocolate, sandwiches, deserts, all available 24 hours...WE LOVE IT!

We really enjoyed our stay at Montecito Sequoia Lodge! Wonderful place with lots of activities that are included in the price of your room. My husband and I were able to get in on the last 30 minutes of shooting at the rifle range and the staff person was very pleasant and patient. The room was small but clean. Our bathroom was big and very clean with new fixtures and I have included pictures. A buffet breakfast and buffet dinner are also included in the price and the food was very good. We really enjoyed the big fireplace in the lodge and also enjoyed the campfire in the evening where they provided the supplies to make smores. Only wish we would have had more time to enjoy the activities offered here. With everything that is included it is definitely worth the price and we will stay here again if we return to the area.
