We spent two comfortable nights here while enjoying Sequoia National Park. The staff was helpful getting us into our reservation a day early as we had to end our backpacking trip unexpectedly due to altitude/ weather problems. The property is older but mostly well maintained. The continental breakfast was mostly packaged pastries, but they did have a good amount of... More

Although the front desk clerk was nice and affable, it couldn't cover up the fact that the room/cabin was sub par. After coming back from dinner in Three Rivers, I discovered that my bed had no fitted sheet on the mattress. The other bed in the room had a sheet. I chalked it up to an over site on the... More

This was the perfect place to stay. Quiet, clean and so nice and comfy. Air conditioning, WiFi, breakfast, a nice pool and the cutest goats that my daughter just loved. Very friendly owners took the time to chat and tell us where was good to eat. we will definitely be back.

This reminds me of the motels from the past. They are cabin style rooms with some single cabins and some double adjoining cabins. The rooms are clean and set in a spacious setting with a central area containing an outdoor pool. Lots of grass areas and a net for volleyball or badminton. Children will like to visit the goats and... More

Spacious and clean appartement with kitchen. Friendly and efficient checkin. We liked the pool and our daugther especially loved the goats in the backyard. A small table and some chairs were available in front of the appartement. A subway and a supermarket are only a few miles away. Breakfast is simple but ok.

The Lazy J Ranch -America's Best Value Inn is an old motor court type of lodging, with two rooms to each building. Parking is directly in front of your room door, and porch areas have two chairs and a table. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the A/C kicked out enough cold air, and everything worked as it... More

We stayed here 20 plus years ago and decided to stay again while visiting Sequoia National Park. It is now run by the original owners daughter Julie and her family. Julie is very friendly and helpful, especially in recommending a place for breakfast!! Jackie who works the office in Julie's absence is very friendly and helpful as well. We had... More

My wife and I stopped here for the night on our way to Sequoia National Park. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. With a mix of older furniture and lamps in the room, looking over our parking space to a grassy area with swings, we felt we were back in the 60's. The owners have some farm... More

This is a nice property with the highlight being a beautiful pool area with a gazebo and large lawn area in the center of the property. Our room was reasonably comfortable but we were invaded by a variety of insects. The spiders in the bathroom were a bit much...

Found the lazy j online when making a spur of the moment trip to sequoia park. Found the bed comfortable and the room well taken care of. Glad we found it, finding a clean place matters to me. Took a walk to the river in the back, very nice.
