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

Loved staying here - will always have great memories of this place. My kids loved the pool, the room was simple but clean. Close to many attractions and good food. I would definitely stay here again!!

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

This is a yearly thing. and this is where we stay. We could not have asked for better weather. Just sitting outside of the room, in the chairs provided. The rooms are small, but large enough. They are nothing fancy and don't need to be. This is a very laid back place . Very peaceful, even with the road right... More

We are in the middle of a 3 night stay here and are enjoying it so much I thought I would review early. Although older than some, it is much better than the usual motel marketed by this chain. The rooms (NON SMOKING) are of decent size and although a bit dated are quite pleasant, ours was spotlessly clean and... More

This motel has a really nice setting with a swimming pool and parking right outside your door. The room was basic but comfortable and clean. You pickup breakfast from reception so it's not a sit down breakfast or anything special but works if you want something on the go. The windows just had blinds so you get the sunlight in... More

Lazy J is a quaint little place where the rooms are split up between a bunch of little single floor buildings. My friend and I really loved staying there. It was very relaxing, and the staff was super nice. They even have little goats you can go see. This is a great place to stay if you're visiting the Sequoias.... More
