I stayed there for two nights but because I was not certain I would end up in Visalia at the end of my second day of sales calls had to re-book and got a different room. The room on my first night was nicer than my second. The bathroom and shower fixtures seemed newer and did not leak. I also... More

The hotel was cool and the customer service was great. The down sided was that the rooms were a little outdated. The bathrooms were clean but needed an update and the TV seemed like it was 15 years old. Nice pool deck and decent affordable restaurant.

We arrived here around 9pm, after a tiring day touring King's Canyon and Sequoia. Room was basic and a bit dated, but ok. Old style TV, no fridge or microwave. Outside pool which we didn't try, but the gardens looked nice. The hotel restaurant closed just as we arrived, so can't comment on that either, and ended up in the... More

I stayed here while visiting a friend in Visalia this past September and was looking for a nice (but cheap) place to stay. We'd been staying in Motel 6 for the past week and this was the most welcome change. Front desk staff were very welcoming and friendly. Our room was on the first level with a door opening to...

The price was good and the hotel was well taken care of. We loved the garden area and the staff was very friendly. They also have a restaurant and bar on the premises which was really convenient. Next time we are in Visalia we will be sure to stay here again.

Get what you pay kind of hotel. Ok room. No microwave or refrigerator. Bathroom door wont lock.No temperature control. The beds were average and there was only 1 pair of soap for showering. No breakfast. Although there was no road noise, people walking and chatting in the corridor, felt like they were inside our room. Free wifi sucked in the... More

Thank you for letting us know what you didn't like. Concerning the bathroom door had you let us know we would have fixed it or relocated you to another room as all our bathroom doors should lock. Our Inn does not advertise that we supply refrigerators and micro-waves in rooms. We offer a full service Grill on our property with... More

We had two garden view rooms on the ground floor. The rooms have a door from the parking area around the back, and another door onto the garden in the middle. The gardens are a delight. It would have been nice for each ground floor room to have had their own seating so we could have enjoyed sitting outside to... More

Thank you for your review. I am most certainly sorry you had a problem with the room. I cannot imagine what the "odor" was but not having the room number I have no way of checking this out. Our garden area have padded benches on each garden section and there should have been ample benches for you and your traveling... More

The Lamp Lighter is a very nice place. Nothing fancy, but a clean comfortable room. Good service at the front desk too. The rooms are nice, though the TV is a throwback to the mid 2000's (small crt tube). But since I just used the room for sleeping and showering it was fine. The free wifi is pretty awful though....

Had a very relaxing couple of days here. The rooms are a good size with big comfy bed. The room has fridge and microwave and are clean. There is a large pool on site was good to swim in. The hotel has lovely grounds and is well kept. Highly recommend.

We started at King's Canyon and spent the day touring this and Sequoia National Park. We passed several hotels priced at $149 nt and up, outside Sequoia National Park that looked in need of major renovations so we were pleasantly surprised when we saw the Lamp Liter Inn priced at $69nt.The grounds are immaculate and extremely well groomed. The lobby... More
