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.

Located at the base of the mountains and individual cabins for all guests. Plenty of sheep to keep the kids occupied. Swimming pool on the grounds. Plenty of room for the kids to roam and play. Cabins are in a semi-circular location right off the road but still very quiet and laid back. Stayed two nights and AAA members get... More

The Lazy J is a very friendly, clean and comfortable place. There's a nice area to sit looking out on the lawn and lots of room to mill about. It is very reasonably priced. It isn't fancy, but is well cared for. I would pick this over a noisy chain motel any day. There are some decent places to eat... More

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
