This spot is a perfect fit for day trips into sequoia. Very friendly and welcoming. We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed the proximity to the park. Rooms are nice. Enjoyed the fridge, coffee maker and microwave in our room. Restaurant's and gas stations are close too. Fyi there are personal charcoal bbq's to use also which I thought was... More

Great location close to Sequoia in a nice friendly town. It's great value for the room - didn't know what to expect, but the rooms are an ok size, clean, and are all located around the communal green/pool area with parking spot right outside your room. Staff are friendly and helpful and there are some animals on the ranch. If... More

I went to visit family in nearby Porterville and intended to visit nearby Sequoia National Park. This was only about 9 miles from the park entrance. The drive up the 198 was serene. It is a very picturesque place. About the room: I was pleased that for the price we had adjoining rooms with a Queen bed in each. Several... More

Overall the room was great for the price. Our bed was way comfortable! Very friendly family oriented motel and we got to bring our black labbie! Would be so happy to stay here again. Super close to the National Park and they have a continental breakfast to get you ready for the drive and scenery. I loved that they had... More

Nice room. Clean. Inexpensive. Friendly staff (as well as friendly dogs and goats) and a picturesque, quiet setting. Only minutes from the park. A couple of minor maintenance issues (burned out bulbs and a warm fridge) were easy to overlook. Wifi was not working.

My wedding party stayed at this place. They were very friendly and helped greatly the entire time. All of my friends enjoyed the stay. The cabins are small and clean. They are organized in such a way that it feels like a little community. I would highly recommend this hotel to any visitor.

We've been here a couple times now, and great experience both times. Staff is friendly and check in smooth. We got a cottage next to the ranch side and it was large and REALLY clean. My girlfriend reviews resorts all over the country and she was impressed. We had endless fun and entertainment watching the goats and sheep playing outside... More

For the uninitiated, Three Rivers is south and about 15 miles outside of the Sequoia National Park. You have to drive up hill and there are lots of switchbacks that can make you carsick if sensitive to that kind of driving. Hence, driving back and forth after each days visit can be rather trying and tiring to say the least.... More

The room was clean, quiet and comfortable, staff very helpful and pleasant and the breakfast is usual basic motel fare, but there are other options nearby. overall it is a good value place to stay. However, it really depends what... More
