“Just what it should be - clean, quiet, comfortable!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Clean, Quiet, Comfortable, and Affordable.
Not much else to say!
One thing I would like to note; Ceiling fans in hotels often bug me with their noise, and in Tulare in summer, you really NEED that fan or the AC to be on all night! To the great credit of the Charter Inn & Suites, the fan in my room could have been installed on a nuclear submarine it was so quiet!
I'm a cold weather animal, so I can't blame them for the heat, but can credit them with buying quiet fans!

Breakfast was a bit "average", but it filled a traveler up in time to hit the road!

We have stayed in several motels in the Tulare area and this last time, we stayed at the Charter Inn & Suites. I believe this is the best motel we have stayed in, in Tulare. And the price couldn't be beat. The staff is so accommodating and friendly. The rooms are spacious and clean. It's an easy on and off Hwy 99. Within walking distance of shops, a movie theater, and restaurants. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay while in Tulare.

Room Tip: They are converting all rooms to non-smoking. We had a non-smoking room that had previously been a...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

During our roundtrip through the West of USA, we stayed in this hotel to visit the big trees in Sequoia NP.

It turned out to be an excellent choice. It was the cheapest hotel of all our bookings, even with a nice breakfast. The location for the parks was OK (almost 1 hour drive), but it was near the highway and near a big outlet centre and supermarket. The swimming pool took care of some cooling down.

The people of the hotel were very friendly. Especially Jennifer helped us very good. We forgot our passports in our previous hotel and she offered me her private cellphone to call that hotel because it did not work out with the landline. Big thank you for that!

I would recommand this hotel to everybody who wants to visit Sequoia NP. Best value for money hotel of our trip!

Room is large, sheets are clean but carpet is really dirty. Air cond/heater is very noisy. Breakfast is fine, bread, bagel, waffle, yoghurt and lots of coffee and juices. There isn't much to do in Tulare though, we travelled to Visalia for the farmer's market as the one in Tulare us on another day. Found a really authentic Mexican restaurant called Vejars, fantastic food. Very popular. We stayed here for a night before going to the Sequioa National Park the next day. Its slightly more than an hour away. Would stay at Three Rivers if we have the chance to do it again. Its much nearer to the park and the nearby Lake Kaweah is beautiful.

Awesome place for money, best place we stayed at over 10 days. Very nice, GREAT breakfast, free wireless wifi. Refrigerator in the room that worked! The breakfast had bacon, eggs, waffles with strawberry and whipcream topings, yougurt, lots of coffee and juice. THe rooms were very clean and very spacious!! Close to restaurants but not walking, try the Black bear diner just down the street. (by car)
