The hotel is located in downtown, historic Visalia, about 35 miles from Sequoia National Park. They provide free covered parking and free breakfast. There were some interesting characters hanging around the public parking structure, but I didn't really view it as dangerous. The suite is large with a separate sitting area equipped with a desk, sofa bed, and an additional TV. It is perfect for families with kids, especially teens. The pubs behind our room got a little noisy on Saturday night, but the AC covered most of the outside noise. Lots of great nightlife, shops, and restaurants within walking distance. We drove up to Sequoia (Three Rivers) and stayed at that "comfort" Inn and we wished we had just stayed in Visalia the entire trip!
