I can't think of a lot to add that hasn't already been said but will try. Overall this is a somewhat unique, obviously family run property that gets you away from the cookie cutter chains, whether that is good or bad, you decide. I was greeted kindly at reception, which was efficient. We had to walk up the stairs to... More

The lady on reception was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and clean with a large spa bath and separate walk in shower. There was a good choice of food for breakfast including fresh fruit from their garden. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We enjoyed talking to the couple who run this inn. The rooms are clean if a bit dated. We arrived late at night after a long drive from Disneyland. What made our short stay so unique was talking to the couple the next morning about all of the interesting plants growing on the property- lots of citrus trees of various... More

The Garden Inn is not your run of the mill motel. The rooms all have patios and are tucked away surrounded by beautifully manicured gardens of flowers and fruit trees. The owners are delightful and happy to give you a garden tour and explain each plant if you're interested. The complimentary breakfast was extensive and the owner's wife, who mans... More

This hotel has easy access on and off Route 99. It's a little tucked away, but when you get to it the first thing you notice are the beautiful grounds. There are fruit trees, roses, manicured bushes, and flowers all over the grounds. The owners are extremely hospitable and friendly. My husband and I stayed one night and when we... More

I am very surprised by the reviews here and elsewhere with this hotel. My wife and I travel a lot and stay in relatively nice hotels (i.e., Hampton Inns, Embassy Suites, Marriotts, etc.), this was pretty well below those standards. First, the good. The owners seemed to be nice people. I had relatively little contact, but she seemed very friendly... More

To visit Sequoia and Kings Park we booked 2 nights in the Garden Inn. It is a small and great place to be, big rooms (we got an upgrade for a 2-room), pool and wirlpool. The garden had lots of trees with different fruits which were served next morning as breakfast. The owner were very friendly and helpful to us... More

We stayed one night here on our way to Yosemite based on prior Yelpers remarks. All the good remarks were true. The grounds were filled with fruit trees and blooming roses and other flowers. The Hostess was lovely and greeted us each time she passed by. The pool was clean and very comfortable. The room was lovely with a mini-fridge... More
