“over priced motel with no amenities”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

this motel is very convenient to the exit of Sequoia National Park. It's very over priced, however, with no amenities in the room. In fact, it was the priciest hotel of our trip. The sink is right in the room next to one of the beds, so you wake anyone else sleeping in the room when you use the sink. The pool was non operational as well. The proprietress was very agreeable, but you would do well to go a little farther down the road from the park exit and stay at one of the hotels available there.

Not too far from the Giant Forest, confortable and amazing rooms and very nice the swimming pool. The propretary is very gentle and helpful.
The price is not so cheap, but it's a good deal if you consider the place. Unfortunately there is no breakfast, just the coffee machine in the room.
No possible to book and check the availability on line, u have to write emails to the proprietary, but she answer very quickly.

Our family had a great experience here and would stay again. If you want to get away from the commercial atmosphere and feel like another "number" stay here. (Just don't forget your shampoo). We loved the "woodsy" feel and our room had its own theme. Super cute rooms. If you are looking for flat screen TVs and a breakfast at your doorstep don't stay here. A bakery is. 5 miles from the hotel.

This place was just wunderful. Is is small, but very cute and one has an wunderful garden in front of the cabin, where one can sit at the evening and drink wine while watching the stars.
Outstanding was the motel warden! She was very nice. Ask her for a bottle opener, and you get wine glasses without asking. Such service is missing at most places.
If you are near this place and look for a motel this here is the place to go!

Room Tip: We were at the "Room for 2" and it was very nice!

My wife and I spent one night while visiting Sequoia National Park. We arrived late but the owner was very accomodating and friendly. The room was basic but nicely decorated and comfortable. Bedspread was little worn, wall air-conditioner was loud, and fixtures/tile were dated. Breakfast was not included, but we visited a nearby bakery called "We Three" for a delicious meal. Wi-fi worked better outside near the pool, but not in our room. Still, we recommend to others if they were looking for decent, budget acomodations.

We spent there just one night, but we have only positive memories from this little motel. Friendly staff, basic but nice rooms, small clean pool (great for relaxing after the long journey), and delicious breakfast in the nearby "We Three Bakery" (which was recommended to us by the owner). The motel itself is small and rather old, but it has some charm (part of it comes probably from the surrounding scenery)

I think I can recommend the Sequoia Motel as a very good choice if you can cope without all the amenities of the expensive hotel. If you are just looking for a quiet, relaxing and friendly place to stay close to the entrance to Sequoia NP - you will like this motel.
