“If you have to stay in Porterville”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011

My elderly parents live in Porterville, so we visit there regularly. There are 2 decent places to stay: the Best Western and the Holiday Inn Express. Both are relatively new and include a do-it-yourself continental-plus breakfast. Clean, big room. Shower head non-adjustable; awful for short folks.

Room Tip: We had the room right by the breakfast bar. WAY noisy in the mornings.

We had to come up to Porterville for a funeral so needed a room pretty fast. The staff is AWESOME! We wanted a room next to my parents and they got us that, wanted a later check out time and they gave us that. Had a free continental breakfast and the gal that was working in there was helpful and extremely pleasant for our mourniful day. At check out time I told them our room number and said we were set and said we were taken care of and good to go.
The rooms were a little small had a room with two queen beds. The bathroom was stocked well and quite spacious.with a nice shower. The closet were a little two small for all our suits and dress clothes to be hung in. They do supply a nice size safe and a really nice size refrigerator. That was a plus! They have a good little microwave and supply wifi even though I did not bring my laptop. The beds were extremely comfy but my son's bottom bed sheet was a little small and kept popping off. The could update there televisions to flat screens with better reception though. The furniture was quite nice marble finishes everywhere.
All and all it was better then I expected. Stayed quiet and peaceful for an unpleasant trip.

Room Tip: Two stories with no elevators or a least I didn't see any. So if you have a lot of luggage I sug...

I would agree with some of the other comments on here. It was a little bit pricey, but the hotel is nice, big rooms and very clean. A good hotel.

Good place to stay. A little too pricey though. Room was a bit warm but turned on the a/c and ended up sleeping fine.

We stayed here for 4 nights and found it to be a good hotel. Finding the hotel is a challenge because the road leading to it is real funky. The breakfast was good and plentiful. Check-in and check-out were friendly and fast. Clean rooms. Good laundry facilities. Nice people. We would certainly go back if we are ever in the area again.

In spite of the "funky" roads, we are glad you made it to your destination here at the Best Western Porterville Inn. We are located in Central California about a mile east of Hwy 65, just off the Hwy 190 (take the Jaye Street turn-off). We're happy you found our Continental Breakfast so satisfying. Each morning our staff puts out a bountiful array of ice cold juices and milk, hot coffee, tea and cocoa, white or whole wheat toast, Enlish muffins, bran muffins and Danishes, fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs and the best hot waffles in the West. The Best Western Porterville Inn offers large, spacious rooms, lots of amenities, free Wi-Fi and much more. Our friendly staff is awaiting your arrival once more.

Fair price. Clean, spacious rooms. Friendly staff.

We only stayed overnight on our way from the Sequoia National Monument to L.A. Needed a place to sleep. We found that in the Best Western in Porterville. The hotel has a nice courtyard pool. The grounds are kept neat.

Staff was very helpful. Front desk staff at night and in the morning was competent. More significantly, you could sense that the staff "reads" the guests to determine how they can best help.

Porterville is not much to right home about for a tourist destination. The hotel, and our pleasant stay there will prompt us to remember the town longer...

We sincerely appreciate your taking the time to write a review of your stay at the Best Western Porterville Inn. Even though we might not be the travelers' final destination, our strength lies in the fact that we're only about a half day's drive to many California/Nevada areas such as Los Angeles (Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Universal Studios, Disneyland, beaches); San Francisco (Pier 39, Golden Gate Park and Bridge, Napa Valley, wine tasting); and, of course the lights and fun of Las Vegas. Many guests have used us as the "hub" of their California vacations staying several days at a time. We're just minutes from the Giant Redwoods in Sequoia National Park, lakes, streams and rivers, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, golfing...and, if that's not enough, take part in the many festivities, tours and exhibits as our historical city celebrates its 150th birthday! Porterville - a page right out of cowboy history!

My wife and I spent a Friday night in this hotel and were very pleased with all aspects of our visit. The front desk staff were friendly and the check-in was quick . The room was very nicely furnished and clean. The breakfast offered a nice selection of cereals, breads, pasteries and beverages in a spacious and clean setting. A very good value. Had we been able to cancel our disappointing accomodation in nearby Springville the following night we would have returned to this hotel in an instant!
