Stayed here one night board only - the choice for a place convenient for Sequoia is limited so I effectively picked this at random based on the fact it had a swimming pool and fell into my price category. Note the hotel is at the far east of the town Check-in was friendly and efficient - they supplied a wifi... More

We stayed in Cabin 2 mid-August 2014 and were very impressed! The place was spotless (as in, it would even have met my very picky mother's cleanliness standards!) and perfect for our visit. We were a group of 4 (senior, couple in their 40s and a child) who wanted to be near Mineral King for hiking. The sleeping arrangements accommodated... More

Stayed here two nights while visiting Sequoia National Park. Sheets were clean and fresh, rooms were worn and a bit musty. Very hot when entered the room - would have been nice if they could have kept the air on, at even a reasonable temperature (I would have been happy with 80). Noisy neighbours - I know, not their fault... More

The main room had a table with a refrigerator and microwave, Rooms and bath were clean. Breakfast consisted of pastries, cereal and fruit that you picked up in the office. If you are... More

Not as generic as the other motel in town. Well maintained but certainly not chic. Kind of a rustic 70s look. Very clean! Pool is not fantastic and you should really plan on going elsewhere for breakfast.

My brother and I stayed here while visiting Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon. We booked through hotels.com and ended up with a 'cottage'. The place had all the essentials, 2 beds, kitchen, and bathroom. There was also a window unit air conditioner. An added perk was the TVs also had a DVD/VCR and the office had movies to borrow....

If you are looking for the "upscale, loaded with amenities" hotel...keep looking. But if what you are seeking is a very nice, clean, comfortable place to stay near the Sequoia Park, this is it!! The cottage we stayed in was spacious, well maintained and equipped with a small kitchenette. when we first arrived and noticed the animals at the rear... More

The staff at this motel was exceptionally friendly. The property has a very positive atmosphere. The units, however, are quite old and worn. The beds in #2 were way too old and soft to have a comfortable night.

Thank you for staying with us and for your review of our property. You were correct in stating that those beds needed to be replaced and if fact they and several others were replaced just after you stayed with us. Sorry that happened after you stayed with us! More

Three Rivers is a very small town with just a handful of restaurants and hotels/motels. We stayed here one night on our way to Sequoia National Park. We loved it. It is a big space with lots of green grass, a nice size pool away from the road, and cute cottage style rooms and cabins to stay in. Beautiful views... More

This place is GREAT for families. We had a cabin with a full kitchen, 2 double beds and 2 twins at a very affordable rate. It was quiet, had a pool that the kids loved, a grassy area for badminton, volleyball and play, and goats and animals the kids could enjoy. Continental breakfast could be picked up anytime to accommodate... More
