I might start by saying that we have never stayed in the rooms, we have been to the restaurant numerous times so thought, at the very least I might comment on that part. They serve a great prime rib which over the years I almost always had until I decided to try their misc fish plates. They were great as... More

We stayed here one night based on Trip Advisor reviews; however, this is one place I will not go back to. While some of what was said is true - nice view of the lake, clean enough, friendly staff - a lot was left unsaid. The place is in need of some upgrades and there were problems. The TV only... More

The Lodge is a pretty intriguing place. A family run Lodge & Restaurant overlooking Lake Isabella offers friendly hospitality in clean & spacious rooms with tasty home cooked comfort food. Very friendly staff and beautiful view of the lake. If you are going river rafting this is the place, definitely a must after a day on the lake or rafting... More

We ended up stopping here as night was dropping hard and I was a little tentative on driving the dark, curvy road at night. This is an interesting place directly across from Lake Isabella and a campground, with a fantastic view. We saw one other motel about a mile down the road, and after that was about 32 miles before...

We were on our way from San Jose to Death Valley and stayed in hotel just to have a good sleep. I called to reserve right from our way. It worked for our family with two kids(9 and 7yo). we had a room with one king and two twins - just perfect. You can get a dinner, which the lady(I... More

This place is all about LOCATION. We found it by chance on our way through the Sierra without any prebooked hotels. Usually we stay in 4 or 5 star properties, but Paradise Cove looked like a movie set from the street- so we gave it a try. Yes - it is not the Ritz. But: stay her for one night... More

This lodge / motel / hotel has a fantastic view from the rooms (Lake Isabella) and that's just about it! The bed and towels were OK (and clean) but everything else had a 'dirty feel' - even the TV handset! The amenities were sadly lacking - some of the electrical fittings looked positively dangerous - no coffee maker and the... More

I feel really bad giving this place a bad review because it's a family run joint, which I try to support, and the people working there are incredibly nice. The other disclaimer is that we stayed there in March and everything around Lake Isabella is clearly there for summer tourists. We were just passing through on the way to Death... More

Travelled to Lake Isabella and met family before heading up to Sequoia Nat'l Park. We stayed in the Paradise Cove Lodge/Hotel, directly across from the lake. The view of the lake from the hotel is just beautiful. I believe our room was around 74.00 per night. The rooms are decent enough. Ours had two beds, a king and a double.... More
