“Good Hotel, Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I have no clue why you would want to go to Tulare, it looks much closer to Sequoia than it is and that was the mistake that I made.
I booked a couple of nights at Charter Inn as they were dog friendly. The hotel was very clean and modern . The staff were very friendly and accommodating and they serve a breakfast buffet in the morning.
OK the drive to Sequoia was 45 minutes but the hotel was really good and relatively inexpensive so we actually didn't mind.

Room Tip: The Pool area can get loud so book a front facing room

This was a superb place for a stop off en route to L.A. It was comparatively very cheap and the room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. There are a few restaurants and shops within walking distance of the accommodation. Would definitely recommend this place.

Stayed here for one night after a day trip at Sequoia Park and we were pleasantly surprised. We chose this hotel because of its affordable price.
Hotel room was spacious and clean.
Staff members were helpful and friendly.

We were trained by other places not to expect much when one stops for a night in an inexpensive hotel, but this one was a complete surprise. The room was very spacious, clean, with high ceilings and lots of air. Staff was very accommodating, smiling and just upbeat. They have a small "bar" table in the lobby, so you can get a glass of wine to sip in the evening. Breakfast was actually edible, and included whipped cream and strawberry preserves for waffles. Items were replenished regularly, and when I had to ask for one, the hostess brought it right out.

A side note: the 99cents store across the road is a little gem for folks travelling with kids. We got bunch of fruits and snacks for the kids, and the prices were very nice. It's a liquidation store, so I am sure selection varies from day to day, but we were pleased.

Tulare is not a nice place, but they have tons of chain type restaurants and shopping. I-5 runs through it, so there you go. The Charter Inn and Suites was a nice hotel. Good services, good staff. Clean and the breakfast bar was good and well stocked. The price was right.

Could not fault this place, clean, comfortable and excellent value. I am guessing this hotels main customers are the business trade. Our room had air con, fridge, free wifi, premium TV channels Breakfast is very basic but there is an ihop next door.
