We stayed for three nights, and the Lodge was kind of what we expected. The central location was the main reason for staying, with the hotel being pretty average after that - nothing particularly bad, but nothing particularly good. Appreciate that they needed to rebuild...More

No advance warning that only food available in the park is from a food truck while construction underway . Lodging average at best. Cleanliness average. Staff seems ready for season to be over. Very poor showing for NPS and we love touring our National Parks....More

Please don't be tricked by the name 'lodge'. This is a cheaply built Premier Inn-style property with no character befitting the name of 'lodge' in a national park. Enjoy listening to everyone else shower, flush their toilet and talk in the room next door as...More

We stayed at the John Muir Lodge this September 2016 in a king deluxe room on the first floor. Check in was very slow as there was only one person on duty. However, staff was very nice. It is important to be patient. Our room...More

Actually, our review indicated that cleanliness was not a problem. The hotel is dated and service is spotty although friendly. Please be aware that we stayed in the lodge itself and not one of the cabins.
