We checked into a river room a few hours ago. Stayed the night before just before Johnston bridge - pitched a canopy and slept under the stars. True, it is the 4th of July weekend, but equally true, Kernville is not a "hot" spot this late in the season because the river is low - temperature is HOT!!! - and the bugs are biting. So, here is my beef. We are paying 145+ with taxes. When ya go above $100 in Kernville , you better have working internet and something to make one fee special. The room is fine and looks like the pics.Bed is so so. Pillows really stink ( very small and not too soft), bathroom is tiny and the ceiling fan doesn't work.
Upside - the general store is literally right across the street and the rive is 75 yards or less in back of the lodge. Nice spot to throw in a tube or lure.
I'll post some pics - but I would not recommend this room to anyone at $145. The room is worth $85-$100.If they think raising the rates on a holiday is a wise move - it's not.Just warrants a so so review with blunt honesty. Oh yes , most important - the WIFI stinks! I am on my verizon 4g card right now. When I rang the front, they said to walk out side or near the front office and try and connect and then hope it stays connected after getting back to the room. Now, that's a joke.....
Wish I could a better review here - but it is what it is. Would 100% try an alternate place next time ( we come every year). Nothing here deserving of loyalty.
it's all the same! every room is really a river room. Don't pay extra because they tell you...
