I booked 2 nights in this hotel. The first night, they didn't have my reservation even though I got a confirmation e-mail from their website AND a reminder e-mail. After (long) investigation by the staff, their software did something wrong and booked me for another date and another room... Hotel was full so they didn't have a room for me,... More

This lodge was an excellent find for us. What else can you ask for, sounds of the river, continental breakfast delivered to your door, microwave, refer and friendly/helpful staff. Best proximity to the park. We slept with our door open so we could hear the river all night. Even some trails leading you right down to the river. We even... More

There are outdoor tables and chairs to enjoy the nearby river. There are also charcoal grills so you can do an outdoor barbecue. Room was very clean and comfortable. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. In fact one of the people in the office said she would move her car so we could park right next to our... More

I loved this hotel. Quiet and comfy. The pool area is very nice. My husband, daughter and I stayed here August 2014 after visiting Sequoia National Park. I liked the little breakfast area with the coffee grinder and treats. Bath large and modern. Personally, I prefer places like this to fancier hotels.

Rustic lodge in the mountains with an awesome view next to the river. If fact, one can hear the river in your room. Businesses in Three Rivers are spread out over a number of miles. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

What a great find! This little hotel backs onto a gorgeous river, has a lovely atmosphere and very friendly helpful staff. Our kids loved the yard with the swing and couldn't get enough of exploring the rocks at the river. The room was cozy, clean and warm, beds comfy, and the breakfast basket a very thoughtful touch. The restaurant nearby... More

The Buckeye Tree Lodge advertises itself as the closest motel to Sequoia Park. It is, but only by a few 100 feet. There are other lodges which are also less than half a mile from the park entrance. However, it is a good place to stay but it is plain, dated and a bit warn but VERY clean. We had... More

I booked this place after seeing it pop up online after a search of my own, and I booked it on their website. I liked that it was only 1/4 from the entrance to the park, and photos of sunshine and grass were too good to pass up. While the Lodge is somewhat antiquated and could use a facelift, who... More

We stayed one night here as we were taking a road trip and had built in some time to visit Sequoia National Park. This lodge is so convenient for the entrance to the park; it's literally a few miles down the road. It was priced well ($122 incl. tax for one night) and the room was well equipped. We had... More

We made a last minute decision on the day of our travel, and we booked the king suite (#2) via the lodge's own website. I was worried that it was too last minute, so I called the lodge to double-check the reservation. Thankfully everything was falling in the right places, and the owners were giving us detailed answers to our... More
