“Reasonably clean, but needs a refresh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2015

Visited in February 2015 with the wife for a long weekend vacation. This is a small motel built probably in the 1960s. It is reasonably clean. However, it is time for new carpet, flooring in the bathroom, bed, tv, chairs. This is a budget motel, and for $90 with tax, it was ok for the price. Given this was off peak time, it was slightly high, but maybe I am too cheep. The staff was nice. The location is close to the park.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a fireplace, but they do charge extra for using it.

Quaint little place which was ideal for my wife and me who were there to see Sequoia NP.
The rooms were a little dated but clean and the staff was very nice. The views were spectacular and the rates were reasonable. I'd definitely recommend this place!

The hotel was convenient to the Saquoia National park. That is the only positive thing that can be said about it. The rooms and bathrooms were filthy and when travelling with two babies cleanliness is of the utmost priority, it was as though when the hotel was built that was the last time it was cleaned. Breakfast was a poor excuse of a meal and what was offered was very limited, there where no tables to sit at so it became a juggling act.

This hotel has been one of the worst i have seen during my trip through the us.

The blanket smelled horrible and had an ugly white stain, which I hope was toothpaste, the bathroom was very dirty, too.

On top, the staff was kind of unfriendly in my opinion.
The breakfast was free, but they provided only some cinnamon rolls and doughnuts and orange juice. nothing for kids of people that try to eat healthy. but it was free.

Stayed here in mid November. Rates were very cheap. Room were unique, with painted cinder block walls, and slanted wood ceilings. But they were clean and the accommodations were as described. My girlfriend and I like slightly quirky places like this, so we thought this hotel was a great stay. They staff were all very friendly. The showers weren't great, but they got the job done. It's very close to the sequoia national park as well, which is why we were in the area.

My colleague and I stopped off here during a book tour ('Climate change and global policy regimes: towards institutional legitimacy' - thrilling title, eh?). As a researcher in forest policy and management, getting to see General Sherman et al was a lifetime ambition. Shame about the 'fiscal cliff' as most ranger stations were shut, but the trees, if not the forest (over-trampled) were impressive. Sierra lodge was cheap, cute and chintzy, the room 1980s decor, with the inevitable 'deer about to be shot' picture on the wall, plus ancient TV and fridge. Great! Breakfast was pretty basic (not good for gluten intolerants). Highly recommended if you're not fussy and are looking for an American motel experience, next to stunning scenery. Good value for money in my opinion.

Room Tip: Take the rooms on the down side, not the road.
