The best thing is the location. My room was basic with torn chairs and old carpet with crumbs on it. No soundproofing in rooms - can be very noisy. No check in until 4pm and I wasn’t even allowed to confirm my booking until then. So quiet all day, then queues at 4pm. Main issue is with the “dining room”which was filthy. Food everywhere, on the tables, the carpet and my table had a slab of butter or similar on a chair! The food also comes in carry out mode. Personally, I wouldn’t stay here again, although there may not be many other places to choose from.

Loved our stay here

Quaint older lodge in a great location in Sequoia! I understand many things need updated but the lodge is clean, unique and has many positives including a beautiful lobby with free coffee, tea and games. We loved it!

We had an amazing 3 night stay at the John Muir Lodge! The location is excellent, the rooms were clean and the lobby was nice with free coffee and board games. The WiFi worked great and the staff were kind and helpful. We would return again if visiting the park.

Awesome Time at John Muir Lodge in Kings Canyon National Park!

Great furnishings and soft comfortable beds! The rustic setting was very beautiful. It was nice sitting by the fireplace in the lodge great room. It is within walking distance to the museum, restaurant, store and gift shop in Grant Village.

Let me start with the positive. Staff and employees were all kind, respectful, and helpful to the best of their capacity. Lobby is comfortable. Room was reasonably clean. Unfortunately, the negative is much longer. Chairs in the room all need to have better cushion. Sinking into one’s chair is not comfortable. Some people wouldn’t be able to stand themselves up after sitting in those chairs with worn out seats. The coffee was bad as though someone put their dirty socks in it. Those are the worst things about the room. Grant Grove Restaurant charges regular restaurant prices for the food but doesn’t give regular restaurant quality food. We ordered personal size pizzas the first night and the toppings were scarce even though we paid full price for them. The next morning for breakfast we ordered scrambled eggs, hash browns, and bacon and sausage. The toast was dry without butter having been put on it, the bacon was extra thin measuring about 1/16th of an inch and the sausage tasted like cardboard. Dinner that night comprised of hamburgers and a chicken sandwich. Sounds simple, right? They were all bone dry and lacking in flavor because of that. If you choose the possibility of going to the lodge I would recommend you call them and ask if they’ve fixed the problem with the chairs especially if you have mobility or flexlibility problems. Also, be aware that you are taking a chance with the food at the restaurant, or perhaps take some food from home and save yourself some money.
