“It's a Comfort Inn - it's pretty much as you'd expect.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

The Three Rivers Comfort Inn is in a handy location on the way up to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, which, I suspect, is their main business.

The rooms are pretty average - a bit worn, but fine for a night. Everything worked except the wi-fi, which was really dodgy in the evening, although it was OK in the morning. The air-con was very noisy and we had to turn it off to get any sleep.

Breakfast was very crowded - it was Labour Day weekend and there was a large Japanese group in, so I guess that was fairly unusual. The food was OK - again, pretty standard motel fare.

All in all - fine for a night or two, but that's all.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post a reveiw for us. WIFI is a difficult thing up here in the mountains and we have gone to great expense to provide what we do have. I know that a great majority of our guests are back in house by night fall and catching up on emails and watching movies, downloading things etc and that does slow things down vs the day time when most all guests are in the park. That being a very busy holiday we did have 100 % occupancy and things do get a bit crowed here for breakfast but we do keep it open for 3 hours so hopefully everyone can enjoy the breakfast.

We are getting a facelift this year with paint and new furniture and have already replaced many of the air conditioners; so I do hope that you give us another opportunity to give you a place of rest and comfort in the future.

Warm Wishes,

Shelly Matlock
Manager

The hotel is shabby: dirty carpets, dingy towels, awful shower curtain, cloudy pool... I would not choose to stay here again. Our king room was large, and quiet for near the pool. The small back parking lot was convenient.

Dear Guest,

I apologize for your negative experience while at our property. I can only hope that you logged a complaint at the front desk so that we could address these issues with the housekeeper that attended to your room. Just as a note... we would have gladley moved you to another room so that your experience here would have been much improved. All hotels will offer this courtesy to guests who are displeased with anything about their room.

Warm Regards

The Comfort Inn was very nice, clean and in a good location to visit Sequoia National Forest. Staff was very helpful. Provided us with names of restaurants in the area. Check in and out was extremely efficient....they were well prepared for the number of guests that evening.

We stayed here recently while visiting Sequoia National Park and it was as close to the park as we could get since everything inside was already filled. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself was a bit dated and seemed a bit under typical Comfort Inn standards.

The hotel is in a good location within Three Rivers, we twice did the easy walk across the street to the grocery store and Mexican restaurant which was decent.

The room was of a decent size but it was very strange that the only window that allows natural light had just a blackout curtain and not a sheer curtain that still offers some privacy and light. It was a bit depressing in the room with the shade closed so people don't just look in as they pass by. Would have been nice to have a mini-fridge.

The internet was pretty useless most of the time. We couldn't consistently connect and when we did it still didn't seem to be working well enough.

Rooms are clean, yet still have that cheap cleaning product smell. For a comfort inn, it is average. Good for a nights sleep. The pool and jacuzzi were a welcome relief after a hot day hiking in the National Park. Breakfast is advertised a bit more than it is, and very very crowded.
One of the better options in the area on the way to and from the national park.
Also serves as a stop for anyone wanting to take the shuttle into Sequoia National Park.

After driving all way long from Yosemite, we arrived to Three rivers.The first thing that we saw in the hotel was the swimming pool full of people enjoying the red sunset. Amazing! Regarding the room, it was big, with the crib that we requested, with microwave, fridge, coffee maker, TV and the common amenities of a room. The breakfast was included (nothing special).

The location of the hotel was also very good, few minutes from the park, and walking distance to few restaurants.

We stayed in the family suite, or apartment. This really could be a great room. The room was not clean. The dining chairs had dust and a straw from a previous guest stuffed in the cushions. The only cork screw was kept at the front desk. There were only two forks and 2 dinner plates. When told, management responded that the previous guest must have taken them and offered paper plates and plastic knives and forks. The king bed in the bedroom was OK but the other two beds off the kitchen should have been retired years ago. There was no dish soap or dishwasher soap. The whole room was wired with motion sensor switches, which is fine, but the kitchen one was broken and there was no way to turn the light off. We had to cover it with paper so that the light would not go on every time we rolled over. The toilet ran and ran. There was also an ongoing leak under the kitchen sink. Also, like most most complimentary breakfasts, there was little to no choice for the gluten free. Access to the park is great from here but location can only get you so far. Wake up over there guys!

Dear Guest,

I apologize for your uncomfortable stay with us. We have addressed the missing items in the apartment in hopes that they are left as part of the suites amenities. The sensitivity of the auto lights have been adjusted as well. We found no evidence of a leak under the kitchen sink though. In regards to Gluten Free food, corporately; the properties in the Choice Hotels family is so rarely asked for those options that it is not mandatory for us to stock them.

Thank you for your cander as we do see every review as an opportunity to shine and or improve. I hope that you arrived at your final destination safely.

Many Blessings,

Shelly Matlock
