Very clean and comfortably furnished 1 bedroom suite with full kitchen. Cute landscaping and BBQ area. Our Lab loved playing with Rocky and Rollie. Dinner was fun at the Brew Pub most conveniently located across the road... Thank you Crystal, Rose and Jet for extending your gracious hospitality to us and our friend visiting from Germany.

Hello, thank you for your descriptive review of room 203! We've worked hard to upgrade the apartments into the 21st century with flat screen tvs, brand new futons and brand new heating & AC (just to name a few). The apartments are our pet-friendly rooms as your Labrador has come to find out. Our staff enjoys making new friends! From... More

Had a great time staying at the kern lodge. Checking in and out was very easy, and the lady with dreads that worked there, who helped us out, was very friendly and informative.i would definitely stay here next time I'm in kernville and am not camping.

Our favorite place to stay in Kernville, great for families!! The rooms with the kitchenette are perfect, especially when you have such an amazing store (the James store) right across the way. Not to mention the Kern River Brewing company right next door!

Hello, thank you for your review! We often receive questions regarding the locations of restaurants and grocery stores, as well as rafting and fishing companies. Suffice it to say we're close to most everything Kernville has to offer! Even the downtown shopping center is a mere drive (or walk!) over the bridge down the street from us! We're glad you... More

We spent 2 nights in "The Meadows" room, a really cool rustic room with a kitchenette and even a private patio. It reminded us of great family cabin memories yet had all the modern day amenities. A suprisingly spacious bathroom and the kitchenette was outfitted with most the essentials. They even had a toaster on the counter for us after... More

Hello, thank you for your review of room 114!

Our group stayed here for one night, in fact we filled the hotel. The rooms were comfortable, clean and well equiped and the staff helpful and obliging. In close proximity was a store, a gas station and a brewhouse.....everything we wanted. We would love to have spent longer here to explore and would definitely return sometime in the future. The...

Only had an overnight stop at this motel but the owners made us really welcome. We shared a lodge which consisted of lounge/diner/two bedrooms and large bathroom. Everything was clean and in good condition. There is a store nearby for groceries and a few places to eat out. It was a place that we good have easily stayed for longer.

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

Hello, This was a wonderful review with so many details! The only thing we wish to clarify is that all of our rooms come with a mini-fridge (among other amenities), and the bigger rooms have a full-sized refrigerator.
