We stayed here while visiting Kings Canyon N.P. and Sequoia N.P. The Spalding House is a lovely historic home located in a very nice neighborhood within walking distance of downtown Visalia and many restaurants. The B&B has two bedrooms: The Spalding Suite and the Aviary Suite. Our hostess was Peggy, the owner of the bed and breakfast. We stay exclusively at B&Bs so we know what to expect and what we like and dislike. While I hate to write a negative review in light of all the good reviews, I found The Spalding House lacking in several areas. We stayed in the Spalding Suite, which is a one bedroom with a queen bed, private bath with a shower only and a separate sitting area. Our room faced the street. Although it wasn’t a “major” thoroughfare, it had enough constant traffic throughout the night to be noisy enough to disturb sleep. There was also late night noise from nearby neighbors, obviously not Peggy’s fault, but it woke us throughout the night and early morning just the same. We spent two pretty sleepless nights here. I think the Aviary Suite, which faces the yard, would be quieter. Breakfast was good, but basic. Not offered were amenities common in bed and breakfasts nowadays--a common room with a television (there is one and I guess guests can use it, but we weren’t told that), refrigerator, ice, coffee and tea available at times other than breakfast, menus for local restaurants, brochures on things to do, etc. for guests. Although guests can use the living room and library, those rooms were “locked” at 10:00 p.m. There are no phones or televisions in the room, but the inn does have high-speed internet. Just be sure to ask for the password in advance. Peggy is a gracious, sweet woman, but I think she could use a hand in running the B&B. We requested breakfast at 7:30 a.m. one morning and at 8:10 a.m. were still waiting. I think Peggy forgot. There was an issue with our 3-night reservation (even though we called or emailed to confirm several times), resulting in our having to move to another room the third night. As this was the end of our 14-day vacation, and given the noise issue and sleepless nights, we opted to cut our stay short. Some B&Bs are more "hands off" and if that is your preference, I think you will enjoy your stay here as the home really is beautiful and close to downtown.
