“Great property in a fantastic location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

I wish we had stayed longer. It is so relaxing there. The location is great, whether you want to drive to the park or just simply chill out around the property. Staff was very friendly and we would definitely recommend it. The price was fantastc too.
bear in mind that there are not many choices to eat in Three Rivers, but this is a different story.

We are very happy with our experience. We stayed two nights at the cabin. It was very cozy. Cabin 1 has a separate living room space. Bedroom has amazing views & has plenty of closet/storage space. The kitchen is equipped with everything [plates, cups, forks, spoons, pots & pans]. AC & heater work great. We love that it's walking distance from the river & there are plenty of trails to take walks on. Lazy J's is pet friendly and that is a plus when traveling with my pup. We love coming here and can't wait to visit again. It's the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. We wouldn't change anything about Lazy J's because its what makes it unique & special.

Two nights in our "cabin". Yes it was a little dated, but so comfortable. We collected our breakfast the previous evening and met the lady owner. She was lovely and showered us with oranges..lovely.
We took advantage of a drive into the mountains which supported the Sequoia trees..another plus.
If we were to improve the accommodation it would be to remove the "disposable" approach. Glasses were plastic cups and so on.
But...it was good and..we would go again

Room Tip: All rooms seemed equally good

Our family has been coming to the Lazy J once or twice a year for almost 30 years. In fact, for several years we held Thanksgiving there, so beautiful and relaxing is the setting. We book one of the double rooms (1 queen in one room; two queens and a sofabed in the other) that are connected by a kitchen. We pile in food, pets, kids and then hole up, hoping for rain. It's a wonderful place to do a whole lot of nothing. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the Kaweah River and, when the sun is out, the view of the Sequoias is breathtaking. This last trip was right after a winter storm and Sequoia National Park was frosted with snow. Three Rivers, especially during non-summer months, is a quiet, one-street town that has really fun places to eat, should you want to go out. This is the perfect family place to stay.

We stayed here after an early season winter storm disrupted our camping plans at Lodgepole.

The rooms are pretty dated, but adequate. Fridge and microwave were helpful for traveling with kids and picnic supplies. The continental breakfast was not exciting, but not a huge deal.

Out back of the hotel is river access, with a beautiful view of the foothills.

Cabins are only about a 20 minute drive to the Sequoia entrance - rating reflects the convenience factor.

Would stay here again - reasonably priced for this area. Not luxury by any means, but a good home base to explore the foothills area, and the kids really love the open grounds.

On our way from Barstow to Sequoia NP we had a stop in Three Rivers. We planned one night but made it 2 because of the Lazy J Ranch. Very comfortable attached cabins in a serene surrounding. There was a very nice little swimming pool were we spend almost an entire day just relaxing. A complimentary breakfast was served but don't expect to much.

I stopped here for a few days to see the Big Trees and do some hiking and found this gem of a motel. The people who own it take great pride in this place, it is clean,comfortable and reasonable priced. I enjoyed a few days in November and I am sure in warmer times the pool is delightful as are the grounds. All and all a great place to stay
