“The perfect place to stay overnight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2011

On our way to Kings Canyon we bumped into Cindys Snowline Lodge in the evening hours. It is a very charming place, and the owners gave us a good price for a very clean and comfortable room. They are very friendly and welcoming people, and are currently hard working to renovate the building, after the former owner had left it in a very bad state. We had a nice self-made dinner and breakfast on the porch. Free Wi-fi is included, but too slow for online phone connections.
Bring some earplugs along if you have a soft sleep, the frogs make quite some noise during the night.

This place is fascinating! If you want to get away from the tedium of standard motel chains, try it for size. The rooms are clean and spacious with fabulous old-fashioned, handmade furniture. Bull-frogs chorus from the garden is a bonus, as is the log-cabin style porch. Friendly and fantasically helpful owners, who even went into town for us to pick up dinner and a couple of beers. Smoking is allowed on the front porch. Downstairs is still a work-in-progress but has intriguing objets d'art, like a manequin on the piano dressed up to party! If you want somewhere to remember for all the right reasons, that you could base a book on, stay here. We both loved it!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking porch are best.

yndi's is the friendliest place we have ever stayed in. Even during renovation, which is slowly transforming potential to greater amenities, Cyndi provides all the comforts of home in an ultra-clean room. If you are looking for the Ritz this isn't it, yet. If you are looking for hospitality in a rustic and friendly environment, it is Cyndi's. I spent evenings gazing at stars from the upstairs front porch and in the morning enjoyed coffee admiring the mountainside. Cyndi bent over backwards to make my wife and I comfortable to the point we stayed five nights instead of the planned one or two. When we visit Sequoia again we will never stay anywhere else. By the way the Lodge is 10 minutes at max from the Park entrance.

My husband, and I, Stayed 2 day's at cyndi's snowline lodge, the rooms are warmly decorated,
very clean, we loved that you awake in the morn to go out on the balcony, pour a cup of coffee, drink in the sunshine, and sound of birds...
Cyndi has worked hard to change some of the bad reviews, from owner before her.
We found our stay one that left a warm, and memorable feeling!
We would recomend her lodge to all!
If you are looking for luxurys of home.. Tv this wont be for you.
If you came for the beauty that surrounds you, a beautifull place nestled in the mountains,
with great access to all Sequoia National park has to offer, I suggest cyndi's snowline lodge!

Snowline motel changed ownership last week. The new owner was a bit confused (our reservation had been lost) but nice enough. The room was quiet and clean, no moldy smell the sometimes exists in old motels. The bed was comfortable and the linen was new. At $85.00, I thought is was worth the money.

I booked 2 nights with my husband in this hotel but it was a complete disaster.
It is a very old style hotel and the bed (I would rather say old mattress) was so uncomfortable that we couldn't sleep all night. Also, I have to stay that the room wasn't very clean.

There was one table and few chairs on the balcony but they obviously were not cleaned for weeks.
We wanted to check out the following morning and of course we didn't get back the money we payed for the second night. But even then we decided not to stay any longer. I wasn't looking for any cosy or luxury place to stay at but it was pretty bad.
And I didn't even mention that there are very thin walls so I don't have to say how noisy it was.
We payed $90 per nights but it is well overpriced.
I do NOT recommend this place!!
