Not sure where to start. The buildings are immaculately maintained, there is a fire pit area for family/group events and outdoor swimming pool, wheather permitting. Did I say that this hotel shows the pride of ownership?. All of the walls, doors and other woodwork are exquisitely lacquered and beautiful. Most rooms have a fridge and some sport a full kitchenette.... More

51 of us pre booked our rooms and it was a pleasant surprise the rooms were clean and well maintained the down side for me was the fact that there was no hot water in my room and very low water pressure ... After a long hot day riding my motorcycle the shower was needed. My wife and I suffered... More

Hello, I'm very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with the shower in room 106. I have been informed that the Front Desk was never contacted about this issue; therefore, it was not resolved. Had our staff have known about this problem, I assure you that we would have handled it as soon as possible. We hope... More

This is a gem of a place in a location that is both simple and beautiful. Rooms are basic and motel style, and a little worn but that adds to the charm. They are clean and well maintained with air conditioning, fridge, dryer, tv etc. The greeting was functional and clear from a young receptionist. Our departure was a little... More

This place was transported straight out of the 1950s. A charming little motel that has been immaculately maintained. Comfortable bed, quiet a/c, a nice little front stoop swing to drink your coffee in the morning. The Brewery restaurant next door has fantastic beer and solid American food. It was my favorite place we stayed in our long tour of California,... More

Nice mountain room. Pine walls and comfy beds with a swing on the deck! We rode motorcycles there so as soon as we arrived we jumped in the pool and enjoyed cooling off!! The staff was very nice and helped us find places to eat closeby. It was great!

My buddies and I stayed here for a weekend in July. We stayed in room 110 which accommodated 8-10 people. From the outside, you wouldn't think that this room was big, let alone accommodate 8 people. Boy, we were wrong. This room was like a second home. You walk in to a huge living area with couches, flat-screen tv, and... More

My friends and I were looking for a place that can hold all 8 of us. I was skeptical at first, but when I got there it was great. My friends loved it too. Definitely beyond our expectation and worth the money. There is a grocery store across the street, a brewery right next door, and down the street was... More

After much research I decided to stop in Kernville en route from Yosemite to Las Vegas. The plan was to arrive late afternoon and then go rafting in the morning before continuing to Las Vegas. However there was no water and so no rafting! Kernville seems to be a little known hunting, shooting, fishing gem. The Kern lodge was comfortable... More

We went to Yosemite which was boring. We left early because we were bored and my husband found a place to visit. He picked Kernville because our last name is Kern. We were invited to use the big house which is breathtaking and so peaceful. Kernville is a place that has no fast food restaurants. All or most of the... More

Friendly staff and animals. Unique rooms with plenty of amenities. Excellent fire pit and BBQ area as well. Also steps to Kern River Brewing Company. Walk over and grab some tasty food and delicious craft beer!
