Nice stop between Sequoia and Yosemite
Great rustically designed lodge. The night manager John was wonderful . He lit the great fireplace and we enjoyed a relaxing evening. They also have cabins available although I didn't see them inside. Rooms were very comfortable with nice amenities. The restaurant was very nice. We were lucky that there was no snow and we could drive directly to Yosemite...the road is closed much of the winter. Always check road conditions before you go.

Too much noise
If you want a heating system that roars all night, bed lights that don't work, an overhead room light you can't see under, staff that don't act on concerns, one single public space in which to sit, which also serves as a lobby, a reception area, a kitchen and eating area, no advance warning that you are on your own for food supply and preparation as the lounge didn't even supply a mug or a knife and fork, this is the place for you. All at an overpriced AUD $300 per night.

Cabins in the woods
These cabins are so cute and a really great place to stay if you're going to the area. Check in for the cabins is done in the lodge. The cabin we stayed in had two beds, each with plenty of warm blankets. The heater did not work, but there was a space heater that really kept us warm. The patio area had a picnic table and a stove. We made a fire each night and sat outside to enjoy the cool mountain air. Bathrooms are not inside the cabins, they are just a short walk away. We brought some food with us, but there was also a camp store and a restaurant. If you want to eat at the restaurant, I would suggest going early since it is the only one around. It was really a perfect stay.

We spend 1 night at John Muir Lodge in the fall. We chose a "rustic cabin". The cabin was indeed rustic but was well heated. Apart from the beds, table and rocking chairs, there is nothing else. No bathroom (toilets and coin 6-min hot shower are located in a separate common building). There is an outdoor terrace with fire pit for the brave ones. At first, as it was getting quite cold at night, upon arrival, we had doubts. But in the end, the cabin was perfectly fine. Super quiet. Lovely settings. Rustic in a good way. Perfect for a simple night in the woods.

We stayed at the “Rustic Cabin with Shared Bath” and really enjoyed our stay. Didn’t expect much as it is a cabin, but we were positively surprised how nice it was. Beds were really comfortable and the room was really warm (some comments saying that the heaters didn’t work). Staff at the front desk, restaurant, and elsewhere were really friendly. Will recommend this to friends and family.
