About 6 months before my Sons "destination" wedding, I took on the responsibility of finding adequate lodging for the bridal party as well as block out rooms for the attending wedding guests. My son, his bride-to-be and I checked out several local hotels in the Lemoore, Hanford, CA areas -- which is in Central California and fairly remote compared to where most of us lived - So. Calif. where anything you want is pretty much a phone call away. I'm not sure what my expectations were going in, but I suspected I would have to compromise some of my standards. By the end of the day, and after visiting many hotels in the area, we chose The Sequoia Inn. From that moment forward until we all checked out the day following the wedding, we were treated like royalty. Although I dealt mostly with Dottie, (Front Desk Supervisor) and Leighanna, (Hotel Manager), the entire staff -- Kdawn, Monica and the Head of Housekeeping, Martha -- took such good care of all of us -- that I feel as if they are all now family members themselves. A pending wedding scenario can present some of the most challenging of circumstances. Expectations are high, emotions can be delicate and raw and sometimes tensions can often tip the charts. But every step of the way, Dottie and the staff treated our entire guest list with patience, grace, care and concern. In fact, if one didn't know differently, one would have thought it was one of the staff's family members getting married. As the title of my review says -- from the Bridal party to all the wedding guests, young and old, it is not possible for us to have been treated better! The Sequoia Inn is not a fancy-smancy, glittery light, bells & whistles kind of place. It's much better than that. In a modest, yet supremely classy way, the Sequoia Inn offers everything one could want in a home away from home... it's clean, peaceful, safe, comfortable, conveniently located and affordably priced. Equally if not more importantly, it has employees that are happy to see you and take pride in what they do for a living. Thank you Sequoia Inn for being such an important part of what turned out to be a truly perfect weekend -- we will all be forever grateful!
