This is a unique motel with some wonderful characteristics. The current owners have landscaped with a wide variety of fruit trees, making for a very attractive exterior. The fruits from those trees are served then served as part of the free breakfast. We had grapefruit, pomegranate seeds, pineapple guava and jujubes. Not many motel breakfasts include those! The rest of... More

We booked based on the 3 star rating and good reviews. Based on our room last night, neither are accurate. This is a 2 star / 6 rating at best. The room (182) was large and sparsely furnished with older worn out furniture. Leather Futon type couch was sagging at both ends. Fridge was unplugged. Bathroom was not clean by... More

The grounds of this hotel are extremely lovely and full of fruit trees. The rooms are clean and well maintained. One of the more interesting facets of a stay here are the owners, an Asian couple who are into Chinese medicine and herbs. They are happy to share some of the more interesting fruits offered and uses in health -... More

Ok, so the smell is lovely and the source is the extensive landscaping throughout the property- citrus blossoms and roses. Very well maintained grounds. On the plus side: clean, reasonably priced and friendly. On the not plus side: run down area of town and er, run down area of town. About the only drawback- no near restaurants or walking. I'd...

We stayed here for one night on our way to Yosemite National Park, WiFi works fine. Breakfast was very good, just a pleasant stay all around. The owner was so nice and friendly, in the morning he gave us fruits that they grew on the property, fresh Guavas and other rare Chinese fruits. He even gave us a bag of... More

Stopped overnight on route to Sequoia and wished we had stayed a few more nights. The managers were warm and friendly and it felt a very pleasant and calm peaceful atmosphere. The place was spotless. On arrival we were upgraded to a suite near the swimming pool, it was a perfect way to spend an early evening after travelling. Breakfast... More

They property Appears to be a former senior living establishment. The "rooms" are one and two bedroom apartments. There is a great deal of inconsistency here. You can see where they have put some money into the property, but frequently there are finishing items that were not completed. Our first night the bed was very comfortable and the bedding was...

The couple that runs this place are passionate about their "Inn", the garden and their service. We enjoyed both the "over all" garden feeling and all the details and the fresh fruit served at breakfast. The host is more than willing to explain his never ending garden project and show you the details if you're interested.

Nice hotel, with a beautiful fruit garden and lots of roses. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Rooms very spacious and clean but very noisy due to busy road near by. Breakfast with lots of fruit from the garden, however a real coffee machine would be a plus. I didn't find the pool area very inviting.
