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

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
