“A Fantastic Stopping Point.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

When we saw the isolated location of this motel we were surprised but we pulled into the large free carpark and entered. The receptionist was excetionally friendly and helpful and gave us lots of information about the Sequoias that we were planning to visit. We were amazed when we saw our room. It was large and clean with a lrge bathroom with storage that surpassed any that we had in more expensive accomodation. There was a small pool with chairs that was perfect after a hot July drive. Free wi-fi was also handy. A walk across the carpark led to Dennys which was handy in the evening and offers a discount to residents of the hotel. The motel serves a buffet breakfast which had a good choice and a comforatbale place to sit and certainly was good value for us since there were four adults and we had accomodation and breakfast for less than £75 in the height of summer.

The walls of the accomodation seemed very thin and we could hear noise from other rooms but it was not enough to cause us any problems.

We stopped in Porterville on our way from Death Valley to Sequoia National Park. We arrived early evening and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was great and the bed was luxurious. The serve a great breakfast. As we were there mid week they did not seem too busy. Vicki, the lady in the dining room was very helpful with tips for our trip to Sequoia. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms seem ok. We stayed on the side where the Walmart trucks drive by and thought this w...

Very nice and spacious rooms. Nice variety at breakfast and they even have a laundry room. I will always stay here.

Room Tip: I've had rooms facing the pool and facing the parking lot - both are quiet.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

clean, comfortable, friendly - appreciated the extremely clean & deluxe bathroom and the very comfortable bed. We had the free breakfast, but would skip next time as carbo-loading is not our favorite way to start the day. We ate eggs & some very greasy bacon; could not recommend if you are picky about what you eat, but the other folks in the dining room seemed to enjoy it, as did the friendly fellow in the elevator who especially mentioned the famous cinnamon rolls & the coffee. We would definitely stay there again if we were ever in need of sleeps in Porterville, but might ask for a room not facing the parking lot because of the ambient light at night.

Room Tip: If light bothers your sleep, as it does mine, be sure to bring an eye mask.

We stayed at this hotel about a week ago and we were so impressed with the employees and the care they took to make our stay comfortable. It was all that you could ask for in an overnight stay. They have very good size rooms, clean, courteous and a good breakfast. We would definately stay there again.

Room Tip: Do not stay on the side of the WalMart freight yard where the trucks come and go.
