This is a cinderblock nightmare. Built and decorated in the '50s. $139 for two double (not queen) beds whose mattresses are at least 30 years old. From the duck border around the ceiling to the pink and yellow tile in the bathroom that features a three foot square bathtub this is a place to run away from.

From the highway this place looks really nice. The room however had a very 80's feel with an old TV and old decor, but there was a lot of room and it felt really cozy and clean. Refrigerator, microwave, coffee, tea and water were all included in the room which was nice. I can't remember the name of the lady... More

Last week I called to make a reservation. Michelle was very helpful and politely answered all of my questions. When we got to the lodge, we were treated like family. The room looked, smelled, and felt really clean. During breakfast we had an amazing view of the mountains, and the staff shared some really neat trails with us. If you're... More

We didn't have a reservation, but we had the chance to get a room. We received a very nice welcoming, and we got the key at 10 AM for the coming night. She spent a good night of sleep after a day at Sequoia National Park, very close to the motel !! In the lobby , there is a library,... More

but needs a lot of work. It feels like someone cared about this place up until the early 90s, but then suddenly gave up. Illustrating my point, the lobby library didn't have one issue of "Time" magazine beyond 1995. And the Scooby-Doo villain they have working as a groundskeeper (although I suspect he's one half of the husband/wife tandem that... More

Spacious rooms, clean, 4 big fluffy pillows per bed, extra pillow and blanket in the room, TV, screaming fast WiFi. Typical motel breakfast (pastries, oranges, oatmeal, coffee, tea - they had hot chocolate!!!) but fresh and plentiful. Board games in hotel lobby. A/C unit in room difficult to set right - too hot or two cold. Very pleasant stay otherwise.... More

Nice room, the only thing was the heater in the bathroom didn't work so it got a little chilly getting out of the shower but everything else was just right. Friendly service, little breakfast included in the morning which wasn't much but the porridge & coffee us up for the day of mountain hiking ahead. Really lovely location with a... More

Yes, it's a bit old-fashioned, shabby and run-down — and the breakfast (instant oatmeal: add your own hot water, and some small Danish) is pretty basic — but it's clean and quiet, the rooms are a decent size, and it's only a couple of miles from the Park entrance, which is why you're there...

There is not much to Three Rivers! The Sierra Lodge is located on the north edge of town - if there is an edge and around 3 miles from the entrance to the National Park. Hotel is well sign posted. Reception was efficient and friendly. We booked room 2 in the single story block and away from the road, looking... More
