My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Pine Cone Inn. The décor was charming and the room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Loved the retro umbrellas around the pool. The Kern River Brewing Co is down the street and the Country store is across the street. It is also walking distance to the Kern River and Circle Park... More

The Pine Cone Inn was one of cutest and most pleasant places I have stayed. My room had a memory foam bed, delightful after a long day touring Yosemite. The staff was extremely friendly and the rooms were very very clean and well kept. Its like a little boutique motel in a very sweet little town. I'mrecommending it to my... More

Stayed in room 4. Large single room with a large and confortable bed. Everything clean and complete. A 4 star advice, however, the airco/heater kept ticking all night and the shower needed gravity to produce a small stream of water. Other rooms may be good, but number 4 needs some attention.

We booked this place because we wanted to arrive and just eat, drink and swim and relax. But, the restaurant and lounge arent open-only for special occasions. From the photos on their website, you would think they offered that. Very vague, almost done purposely to dupe you. The guy at the desk was helpful and the beds okay, but bad... More

A nice place to stay to enjoy Lake Isabella or the Kern River. Very nice managment, rooms were clean and comfortable, good bed, refrigerator, microwave, and good TV. I got my car key wet while fishing and couldn't get in, or start my car. The manager, Ivan, went into his kitchen and returned with a bag of rice to draw... More

Wow! Did we ever have a fabulous time at "The Cone!" I stayed there three nights at the end of June with my hiking group (about 30 of us altogether) and we occupied every room in the place. The manager and the owners could not have been more hospitable. My favorite part? The sparkling swimming pool--such a welcome sight after... More

Took a vacation to Kernville to do some local hiking and a kayak trip with friends. The hotel is close to the market and the brew pub. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and we had both a refrigerator and a microwave in the room. The pool is clean, and refreshing, with good seating and tables. There is also a... More

I recently took a group to the Pine Cone Inn and we filled up the place. Roberta and Ivan took spectacular care of us. It's an older retro style Inn but the rooms were upgraded and clean. The pool area was spacious and had a perfect setting for a group or large family...complete with a BBQ. What made our stay... More

After seeing the back of the sign of this place I thought it was closed down. Not only are they opened but they take pets too! The room was very clean & spacious. The bed was comfortable. The owners are putting a lot of care into this place & it shows. I would stay here again.
