Our stay at the Lazy J was just the right spot for everyone in our group. Our youngest group member was 1 year old and our oldest was 78. There was something for everyone. The kids swam, fished, rode bikes, climbed rocks, hicked, played volleyball and in general just had a great time hanging out and playng in a very... More

We had damage to our house and work was being done over the weekend and decided to stay up in the mountains in Three Rivers. Read reviews here and thought this would be a great place to stay. Upon arrival the lady who checked us in was friendly. Thought it was a bit odd to pick your prepackaged breakfast selections... More

Husband, 10 yr old daughter & I enjoyed the Lazy J immensely. Its overall atmosphere felt very homey welcoming and relaxing. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. The two double bed room was well cared for and clean. Maid service was excellent. Amenities such as dorm size fridge, microwave oven, in room coffee pot and standard TV were all... More

We stayed in cabin 2 with full kitchen, which turned out to be a good choice as there are limited eating options in Three Rivers. The cabin was immaculate and came with it's own a/c and franklinstove fireplace. Close to the pool area and farm animals behind it. Very cool to wake up to the sounds of sheep and the... More

My wife and I stayed at this property in mid-May and had no complaints-but no high accolades either. We found most of the reviews posted either excessively glowing, or excessively negative. The Lazy J is a nicely maintained, quiet, vintage motel within a convenient drive of Sequoia NP. The grounds are very nice and the rooms are spotlessly clean. There... More

My husband and I stayed here for just one night, and wished it had been longer. We paid about £70 for the night and it was definitely worth it. The rooms are arranged as little lodges around a lovely grassed area with a swimming pool, and it's right next to the river which you can stroll over to, with great... More

This is a wonderful place to stay! I checked in with my three children and my dog. The cabin was quaint incredibly clean, quiet and comfortable. with a great view of the surrounding mountains. The grounds are extensive, with a pool, a badminton court, a tether ball, the wonderful petting zoo and plenty of places to stroll. The ladies who... More

After blowing through Three Rivers the previous weekend on a road trip i decided to take my wife there for the weekend. I researched all the hotels in the town and compared that to my memory of the place. Lazy J Ranch was number one pick on Trip Advisor so we booked. We arrived late Saturday night and found our...

My husband and I needed just a place to sleep, so that we could get into Sequoia in the morning. We feel like we stumbled on a gem. We called a couple of days ahead of time, got a room, even negotiated a small discount, and had a great experience. Besides the normal in room appliances our SPOTLESS room had... More

Finding economical lodging near any of California's national parks is quite the challenge in the high season of early to mid August. I was quite happy to find not just that, but lodging that was comfortable and fit with my goal of getting away from my typically fast-paced and stressful life. The Lazy J sits at the edge of Three...
