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.

First ..its Ginas Sierra Inn..Out of 6 hotels and one night stuck in a car..This was the best..sweet ..comfortable..warm..The owner and side kick gal still make me smile when I think of our trip..Just hanging flowers could use a drip and the back has endless ways it could be used..Yet maybe it should just stay as is..It would be fun...

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

Sierra Inn was suprisingly inviting. The rooms are just big enough, very clean, and dog friendly. Gena, the owner, was more than accomadating and went out of her way to make my stay comfortable she even took care of my dog while we went for pizza. And, did I mention the home cooked meals served in the restaurant, let me... More

After driving through Fresno and realising it was a dive regardless of what side of town your on we headed like many to the national parks ... Deciding that we were tired, hungry and it was getting late we risked a motel ... It looked like something from a horror film... Thankfully the owners were accommodating and very friendly. The...

We stayed at the Sierra Inn cabins down by the Go West Deli. At first I thought Go West was a bar, but Gina quickly corrected me. Boy - Do I miss the Go West breakfast sandwiches. Anyway, my better half is wheelchair bound and Gina insisted on giving me the key to cabin two and getting my betterhalf inside... More

I have read some bad reviews for Gena's Place. We stayed in room 3 for 3 nights and it was fine. The air con worked well and was not too noisy and the shower also worked fine. The bed was comfy and clean and looking at my photos now the room looked warm and cosy. The food was yummy and... More

Today, we can only look back and chuckle at my gullibility. Sierra Inn is a clapboard mistake by the highway, probably built in the early 1900s from tin and saw-board. Unwittingly, I made a reservation the day of, by phone, on Memorial Day Weekend - they said they'd had a cancellation. Planned to drive 4.5 hours to Sequoia Nat'l Park... More
