I have stayed at the Buckeye Tree Lodge twice. Even though the rooms are dated, they are clean enough. The supreme attraction is the hotel is right on the river. There is a charcoal grill available (restaurants in town are mediocre) and several sycamore trees shade the yard. Each morning I woke up, ground my own in room coffee (grinder... More

We stayed 4 nights and had a wonderful time. The room had fresh coffee beans that we ground ourselves. It opened onto a back lawn that overlooked the river, which was accessible via a short path. We sipped our coffee and bird-watched every morning. Between the sound of the river and the songs of the birds, it was idyllic. Orioles,... More

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay here, despite the rainy / snowy weather in the national park. We had a standard queen room, which to my surprise had a small kitchenette, table and chairs. The room was clean and came with adequate utensils and crockery. There is also a couple or chairs outside, so you can enjoy the... More

My wife and I just came back from 6 months in NY and were looking for some downtime near Sequoia. We searched for cabins and Buckeye came up. The lady who helped us was very thorough and helpful in finding a cabin to fit our needs. We stayed in a small cabin named Hummingbird, perfect for 2 (and a small... More

We were planning to camp but it was so cold we decided to stay here instead. Nice room with a balcony that looks out on the river. This is a great location to access Sequoia NP - the closest you can get to the park. Unfortunately the main part of the park is a 45 min drive from this entrance,... More

Very helpful staff, free long distance phone calls, and fresh coffee beans with the grinder! Rooms are a little bit small but this place is located right on the river within 1 mile at Sequoia national Park. Not many people sit in their rooms with Sequoia so close. I would certainly stay here again.

This is a beautiful setting with the river close by. I enjoyed my stay. The only negatives, I believe customer service needs some friendly improvements and the beds need comfort improvements. A little improvements and I would rate it excellent.

We were going to stop in the sequoia national park but luckily it was booked out. Found this little motel just outside the park at more than half the price. The room we had was a double queen with heaps of room, it has a separate little alcove for eating, with a microwave, refrigerator, coffee grinder and beans, and percolator.... More

We stayed two nights here and enjoyed its excellent access to the National Park - the entrance of which is only 5 minutes drive away. The property has a pleasant location on a riverand some rooms actually overlook it. Our cottage was on the other side of the road. It was very clean and well appointed andhad a pleasant outdoor...

Price wasn't too expensive, it made sense to stop outside of the park and start early the next day rather than pay the inflated prices for accommodation in the park. Room was a bit dated but Ok for the price. Note there's not a great deal of choice for dinner locally, either it's expensive or not very good.
