Three Rivers is a rustic place and from the looks of the reviews on Trip Advisor, a lot of the motels are....rustic as well. When I was looking, there were high prices ($120 or more) for hotels that had many reviews talking about how dirty the rooms were, the staff is not helpful and that they would not even stay for one night.
The Sequoia Motel is not that place. It is less expensive, it is very clean, and Chris, the proprietress, was friendly and helpful. The main difference was the Sequoia Motel could not be booked online, so I had to actually pick up the phone and call to inquire about availability. And I am so glad I took that extra step rather than just booking one of the last two sketchy options available for my last minute booking!
Chris was prompt and friendly in confirming our reservation and checking us in. The room smelled very clean when we walked in and it looked clean throughout. The pool was pleasant, and the rooms were comfortable, partly because they were sort of kitschy. It's a motel - it's not fancy or upscale in any way. But, in comparing to other options in Three Rivers, none of which are upscale, nor have advanced amenities (there is little network access and wifi is not strong throughout the town), most of which cost more and all of which seem a lot sketchier in the cleanliness and customer service departments, I would suggest Sequoia Motel without hesitation.
