As another writer said, the rooms are dated. They do have flat screens in at least one room that has Satellite tv. I wish that they had more to offer in terms of amenities-they provided a fruit basket and a gas station pastry per day. Rooms also had a dated coffee maker plus grinder for their provided coffee beans. I... More

Stayed here for a night after doing a whizz through the sequoia national park. Rooms are (as noted elsewhere) a bit dated but spotlessly clean and comfortable. The back lawn runs down to the river and the terrace is well cared for. Reception rent DVDs at a very reasonable $3 a night - but don't expect the latest releases. We... More

Right off the entrance gate to Sequoia, an hour drive to the main sights. Nicely overlooking the river with some pretty mountains around. Nice pool which the kids enjoyed. We had a mother bear with two cubs in the parking lot which was amazing. Rooms however were quite dated - 70ies style - but clean. No real breakfast just some... More

We are a family of 5 just returning from our trip to se sequoia national park and we stayed one night at buckeye. We loved it! Our room was more spacious than any best western or related motel. The beds were super comfortable and the bathroom was as well. They provided fresh coffee beans and grinder to make yourself a... More

The Buckeye Lodge was recommended in Fodors and well rated on Trip Advisor and other sites. I was a bit surprised when we checked in and both the exterior and interior were cement block. (I don't think I have stayed in a cement block room since college!) The pool looked very nice, although we arrived too late to use it,... More

Just outside the entrance to Sequoia National Park. A nice room with pine paneling and pine furniture, and a balcony that overlooks the rushing Kaweah river. At check in I got a basket with fruit and muffins for the following day's breakfast. It had all the amenities -- microwave, refrigerator, coffee machine, free wifi, -- and yet still managed to...

The rooms here are small, but have all the usual amenities--mini frige, microwave, coffee maker and grinder(coffee beans are provided and you grind your own), TV, and free WiFi. What sets this place apart is the location( right outside of Sequoia NP) and the beautiful grounds. A patio is a step outside the door and it overlooks the river. Native... More

This turned out to be a pefect choice for the end of our trip. The location is excellent and its situation with views of the river is particularly pleasant. The staff were extremely helpful with recommendations and advice. There is a restaurant next to the lodge which offers a varied menu of good quality and is reasonably priced. The only... More

Stayed here for only one night, in the Blossom cabin, on the way to Sequoia National Park. It was a great location, great atmosphere. Quiet, relaxing, and a little garden next to river with a tree swing was icing on the cake. It's on my list of places to return to.

Not a better location exists in Three Rivers. The location is perfect especially if planning on going to the park. The view and walk out to the river is the best there is. We wished we could of stayed longer so we could spend more time at the Lodge. We would go to the park during the day and return... More
