I feel I should disclose from the start that we visited for one night during a heat wave: it was 109 degrees the day we visited. That may have colored my feelings about the place, however: We stayed in a king room. Very small. Cinderblock walls. Drab decor. The bathroom was 4 feet square; shower is 2 feet square. If... More

The Buckeye Tree Lodge is located at the base of one of the entrances to Sequoia National Park. It is what you would expect of a property at this location: Motel 6 décor at rip-off prices. But we indulged, despite our better judgement. This motel is the “Not Quite Motel,” because so many things did not quite work. They provide... More

The owners are incredibly gracious and accomodating. The roaring river lulled us to sleep every night. The landscaping is lovely from the buckeye trees to the blooming cactus. The pool is refreshing. The rooms are not fancy but they are clean and comfortable. And Sequoia National Forest is literally around the first bend. We enjoyed our stay very much and... More

Wonderful location! Rooms o.k., clean, not too small. The view is worth every cent! We had one of the groundfloor rooms, just some steps away from the river. BBQ place is on the motel ground. Breakfast basket is fruit and muffin, we brought our own stuff(did the shopping in Visalia), coffeemaker in the room. You can hear the river day... More

We stayed at the Buckeye's sister property, the Sequoia Village Inn, right across the street. The people there (for both properties) are great--they're even sending back the toothbrush we left behind.

We stayed at the Buckeye Tree lodge for two nights on the first stage of a round trip - LA - Sequioa - Yosemite - SF - LA. We were absolutely mesmerized by the view from our balcony upon arrival. And it got better! The sunrise over the mountain across on the other side of the river was an experience... More

Almost at the entrance of Sequoia NP, the location is very convenient. Very good room and very friendly and helpful staff. The room has a small fridge, is spacious, clean and cozy. Parking has enough places for the guests, but often some spaces are ocuppied by not educated costumers of the restaurant across the street. A good experience overall and... More

This is an annual trip for us to Three Rivers and as always the Buckeye Tree Lodge goes above and beyond to ensure we have a great time. The rooms may not be high class but they are comfy and clean. The owners go out of their way to make us have a great time since there are about 20... More

Falcon is like a miniature custom home for guests to stay in. It's gorgeous inside and out. Surrounded by the foothills of the Sequoia National Park it's like a fantasy retreat. The granite countertops, faux painting and incredible wood furniture make this little gem a must for any traveler. It's a home away from home! The staff are courteous and... More

The other reviews explain pretty well. This room was basic. Two beds, table and chairs (a bit wobbly), tv, microwave, and fridge. On first look the chairs and floor are stained but feet remained clean after walking around barefoot or stocking feet for hours. The river out front of the room and the little grassy area are splendid and quiet.... More
