On entering our room we were shocked. It was bleak. There wasn't even glass in the bathroom window - only a plastic sheet stuck badly to the frame. There wasn't much right with the place so we decided to go to the bar and get drunk. That's where the night changed and this became one of the best nights we've... More

With little planning my husband and I decided to stay at Gena's for the night. Like the reviews say, it's an older inn, with small rooms but the price was good, rooms clean and air conditioned. It was all we really needed. To our great delight the people running the place went out of their way to accommodate us. They... More

We were coming down the mountain a bit later than planned. All the restaurants were closed in the park by 8, and we had our 17 month old son with us. The receptionist at Grant Grove had called Gena's for us, it was now 8:45. Gena kept the kitchen open for us, and waited for us to arrive. When we... More

Very small rooms but very clean and comfortable. Restaurant and bar with pool table and karaoke on site. Gena is great! Very nice and helpful had a problem with the a.c. unit and she had it fixed within minutes! Would definitely stay again. Thanks Gena!

After a bunch of chain motels, this one was a welcome change. We were able to check out the room before deciding to pay, service was great, there's wifi in the restaurant next door, the area is quiet, and the rooms were clean. It's all a bit dated, but that was part of the charm for us. The shower could... More

This is by far THE worst motel I've ever stayed in. Where do i begin? Filthy room, dried bugs all over the bed, worn out sheets, pillows and mattress. Hole in the shower floor, TV didn't work, very small room, extremely small bathroom. Very thin walls, drunks sat on the bench outside the room, karaoke until 2am. Couldn't get out... More

This place was much better than expected. Front desk was friendly at check in. Rooms were clean, they even had the ac on when we got there so the room was already cool. Breakfast was just the basic waffle, Danish, cereal, ect. One day they did have cantaloupe and watermelon this was very nice.

The room is tiny, but for the price and location it is a steal. $40 a night in the off season and $60 a night in the summer. About 10-15 minutes from kings canyon it's a good place to stay if you're not staying in the park. Staff very friendly.

I read the reviews for this place and thought it would be a nice stop over to Kings Canyon. The staff was very friendly and accommodating but that's all I can say. The only thing remodeled about our room was the door lock. The room was small and dirty, holes in the wall, stains on the carpet and a shelf... More
