“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We really enjoyed this place. Room was very nice. Location was prefect for us. Close to the national parks and outlet stores within wlking distance. There are plenty of fast food restaurants just around the corner and an IHOP straight across.
Wifi was fast and reliable, even in the room. Breakfast was very nice too.

Found this place on Pet Friendly hotel site and what a find. Clean, friendly and good rates. Breakfast was great, as was happy hour and they even provide bathrobes with all the amenities of a high price hotel. Love this place and will be back for sure.

We enjoyed our visit and were pleased with everything. We had plenty of room. The breakfast was good although I think they could have done a better job with the eggs. We ate at the end of the breakfast period and things were getting scarce.

This hotel had a lot going for it: clean, spacious suite with a comfortable bed and comfortable sofa (some hotel sofas are awful), very quiet (Room 327), free Internet, table and chairs, desk, free local calls, ironing board and iron, hair dryer, one bathrobe, cable channels, clock, good lighting for reading, good water pressure and plenty of hot water, a pool, good A/C, elevator, lobby with comfortable chairs, decent breakfast (sausage, eggs, cereal, waffles, fresh fruit, juices, coffee, milk), safe parking, near several restaurants, plus helpful and polite staff. We've traveled a lot and this was very comfortable and downright inexpensive. We've paid twice as much for this quality and comfort. Would definitely stay here again. BTW - They allow pets, but we never saw or heard one. We have no complaints at all!

Room Tip: We always wear ear plugs for hotel stays.

We had 2 nights here, using it as a base for day trips into Sequoia, King's Canyon and Yosemite. The hotel is perfectly clean and pleasant. It offers a breakfast (limited selection available but we enjoyed making our own waffles in their machine!) in its very overcrowded lobby area. You can't walk anywhere from here for dinner, except IHOP next door. The pool is small and a bit grubby but my daughter enjoyed a swim at the end of the day. You can get a very nice beer in the hotel lobby, which was appreciated after a day of driving.

There is a small laundry room, which was quite handy.

One tip - you can go over the road to Smart and Final and pay $3.50 for 35 bottles of very nice spring water - much better than paying $1.75 each along the way - and very useful when walking in the parks!

I left my UK plug converter and iPhone charger behind and when we asked for it to be sent on to Los Angeles the hotel said it was never handed in, so either the maid decided to keep it or the cleaning wasn't thorough enough for her to even notice it, and the next guest decided to keep it. Not sure which of those options makes the hotel look better!

I don't write reviews very often, but I think this is worth sharing. We had a guaranteed booking for a night. When we arrived late evening the desk clerk told us that the hotel was overbooked and we had to move to another hotel. When we asked how this can possibly be when we have a guaranteed booking the desk clerk said there have already been a few guests this night who also faced overbooking. Pardon, but do you really think it makes us feel better, when you tell us that you treat many of your clients that way? To make things worse, the room in the other nearby hotel was a worse category than the one we had booked AND payed for. The clerk (Hector) was neither helpful nor friendly.

To me this business practice is absolut inacceptable in the hospitality industry. As a guest I expect that everything runs smooth and I am treated welcoming. This experience in the Charter Inn was the opposite as we had to carry our luggage back to the car, drive to another hotel and get in all 30 minutes later into a room that was worse than what we had payed for and that we did not selected.

To Charter Inn management: If you really think you have to do overbooking in order to maximize your profits, then develop a process that works for your clients. Like calling clients with guaranteed bookings before you take their rooms away and ask if they would accept to move to a room of at least equal standard when they get a small voucher or whatsoever for their inconvenience.
