    I’m writing this primarily to tie-up a many-month feedback lapse: One of the lodge employees, with a name-tag denoting Josil, very kindly provided my wife and I a set of lengthy explanations to a long list of inquiries. A lot of detail garnered from her personal experiences helped us significantly. This was while we were staying at the lodge where where she worked as a receptionist, not the restaurant-portion.However, in coming here I’ve seen a perplexing mix of restaurant reviews. There must be some variability in chefs! To provide our tip on that balance – the restaurant was fantastic. The portions were large – much larger than expected! Very pleasing when you’ve been traipsing about the Sequoias all day. (Also worth noting – they provided gluten-free options, a must for my wife.) The workload on the wait-staff was quite high, but provided great service despite this. Equally important, the ambiance of the place was lovely and perfectly suited the external environs/views thereof. A high-ceiling open space, stone slab and timber construction, centered on a large, radiant fireplace.

    This is one of the absolute best places to stay in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Sequoia National Park Every time we stayed there was a memory of a lifetime. I recommend this place to anyone who visits the Sequoia National Park.

    We just ate dinner at the lodge restaurant. I didn’t have a reservation, but the hostess told us we could be sat in about 15 minutes. After waiting for a about thirty minutes, despite being about 5 feet away in direct view of the hostess stand, the hostess acted like she had never seen us before. The dining room was almost empty at this time. The food arrived quickly and was adequate, but the entree portions were miniscule. I’ve had much better for much less.

    2 stays, no complaint. Giant Forest Lodge in 1957 and 1961 was among the Big Trees, but is no more. Even our camp ground in Giant Forest has been closed — for good reason. But I don’t agree with the man who say he would rather rent an RV. My rooms, in two separate buildings, for my stays were excellent, and who can complain about walking 200 yards to a quite satisfactory dining room. I gave it only four stars only because the rooms are several hundred yards from the dining room. On our second stay we had wi-fi in our room for free!

    Awesome! Great People and what a wonderful view! I would love to visit again during summer this time. Stop at Wal-Mart and buy some chains for your car before going. Just a good idea as they may be required. We had a wonderful dinner and breakfast at the Lodge. Great times!
