I realize that this is an old motel...but bugs and rotten fruit are another thing altogether. The place is old. The location is wonderful, on the river, but the grounds have not been kept up. There were bugs on our towels and the little basket of a muffin, a packaged danish and two pieces of fruit (one moldy) was our... More

Small, very clean motel with a large room with a microwave, sm refrigerater and coffee maker. It is about a 1 mile drive to the entrance of the beautiful Sequoia National Park. There is a restaurant next door and a few small restaurants a couple of miles away. The rooms are facing a beautiful river. The staff was very helpful... More

My partner and myself spent two nights at the Buckeye, which is literally the last structure before the entrance to Sequoia Park on route 198. Very efficent check-in (we paid a little higher price because of summer rush), a clean , simple room. Small , cabin-like feel, but with all amenities - ac, fridge, microwave, tv,dvd player. There were no... More

We booked on short notice and were able to get a room here for one night and one night across the street at the sequioa village inn... More

Great location to Sequoia National Forest. We (two adults, two girls 6 & 7) stayed in room 1 for three nights. although the room is a little tired, the property is perfectly located along the Kaweah river and you can listen and relax from the patio or "lawn" area in the back. The daily breakfast baskets consist of fruit juice,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as our base for exploring Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. We throughly enjoyed the Buckeye. Everyone was so helpful and the view is tremendous. It was so relaxing on the patio watching and listening to the river.we almost did not want to go explore the parks. It was wonderful to sleep. The muffins... More

We booked the mini king suite in desperate need of a relaxing getaway. We got it. The roaring river and the lawn in front is perfect for relaxing on a blanket or at the tables and grill provided. We sat on the shared deck and watched a family of deer graze across the river as the sun went down. Falling... More

Just what the doctor ordered! Hard to believe this little haven of natural splendor is only a 3 hour drive from home in N. Los Angeles county. The view of the river from the rooms is splendid and the sound of the rushing current does wonders to lower the blood pressure and put one at ease. I spent 3 nights... More

We were visiting Sequoia park during Septmber 2008 and found this hotel via the Tripadvisor site. The hotel is greatly located, near to the entrance of the park. At the backside of the hotel one has a very nice view on a river and on the mountains of the park. The rooms are clean, though a bit "outdated", but who... More
