“A decent place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

After trying a few motels for an overnight stay we came across this place. Excellent value for a large quiet room. Happy to recommend it. The staff were helpful and it was clean and spacious ..........

We had a good stay, with the Sequoia National Park about 40 minutes away. The motel was good value for money. Rooms were very clean, in good condition and had a refrigerator, air conditioning and free wifi. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance - try the Hometown Buffet. Would like to have tried the pool, but it was too early in the season - it looked inviting.

After travelling both the PCH and Route 66, this was a stopover en route back to San Francisco. The room was clean and adequate for 1 night, but noisy patrons arriving at all times of the night did not afford a good nights rest unfortunately, but this is not down to the hotel staff, just rude inconsiderate patrons.
Staff were ok, but not very friendly, watching everything you put in your mouth at breakfast as though they were counting the pennies (or cents) as you did so.

Visalia doesn't seem to have many motels but Econo Lodge was good value for $60 per night. It was comfortable, clean and reasonably well appointed for the price. As with all roadside motels it's best to ask for a room on the second floor away from the road. The "hot" breakfast was the standard budget motel waffle. The only downsides were the air conditioning sounded like a helicopter landing in the room when first switched on (it quiet ended down after that) and as you stagger to the bathroom in the middle of the night the movement sensor suddenly switches on the bathroom lights and extractor fan. This is guaranteed to not only wake you up fully but to disturb anyone sleeping in the same room.

Clean room, new flat screen TV, microwave, fridge. Typical motor lodge hotel. Easy on the budget.
Yes, it's an older building but newer hotels in the area cost twice as much. Owners were friendly and helpful.

If you are looking for just clean bed and private shower, this is a place to be. Building was outdated. Room has mini fridge, microwave, wifi with a very poor connection and old furnitures. Has noisy AC too. Breakfast consists of cereals,danish,toast,milk and juice. Lady employee not so helpful. Neighborhood looks scary esp. at night. Good for a short stay and for those on a budget. An hour drive to Sequoia Park via hwy 198.
