This is probably the best place to stay in the area, all new updates including the pool, hot tub, TV's, beds pain and carpet at very reasonable prices. They have definitely upped the image of Best Western in the US and the Tulare lodge is a fine example. They have a full bar and limited food, plenty of good restaurants in walking distance. Definitely make a reservation as the hotel is usually busy, moreso in the week than on the weekends. This is also a great place to stop before you head into the Sequoia Forrest, they can help you with routes, info and recommendations.
