“Hotel needs updating from plumbing to decor.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

I wish we could say great things about this hotel because the staff were lovely but it's dated, the rooms feel old, the curtains felt grimy, the bath seemed dirty because its bottom is so scuffed. The showers were a nightmare because the taps were unreliably giving out hot and cold water. The breakfast was simple but fine. The coffee was great. One of our party saw a mouse/rat beside the vending machine and although we slept soundly, we would not go back.

So disappointing! Beautiful location, but it doesn't make up for... Room windows were cracked top to bottom and TAPED to keep from falling, dirty and didn't lock to leave our belongings safe. Carpet was filthy. Beds were hard. Pool should be condemned, surface is so slick our children kept falling. Jacuzzi was cold and full of dead skin. Great continental breakfast, nice grounds. You may have to wait to use the BBQ as there is only 1. Large piles of trash/debris out our window. During breakfast during a spill clean up, the staff cleaned the floor with a towel, then used the same towel on the food surfaces. BEWARE- there is an old building and a new building. New one looks nicer. Pictures on web were of new building. Manager ignored us as we complained and let his staff handle our problems so we signed out and PAID for a night we did not use. He obviously had heard it before. Problems are systemic! Planned on staying 4 nights, stayed one.

Very good hotel for the money. Good location close to the park, good size rooms, a fun swimming pool and very nice folks running the place.And a 5 minute walk to a beautiful river beach....and the best best restaurant in town is just a couple of miles from the Motel.

Room Tip: Go for the King size bed rooms.

This place tries hard but appears to suffer from a short and busy season near Sequoia and Kings Canyon. The hotel is old and pretty tired. Mud Swallows have formed nests in the eaves over the rooms which keeps the bugs down but their leavings make for a kinda "skeivy" walkway. The air conditioner in the next room didn't work at all. Our either frose us solid or left us melting in 100 degree hear. The toilet was so slow we just kept the plunger in our room. The beds were so so. The breakfast is pretty minimal was poorly set up: eg pick up bread on one side of the room and make your way thru the crowd and tables to the toaster on the other side. A third counter was being used to store dusty, old plastic plants and the little fireplace was decorated with a kinda grim plastic wreath. The rest room off the breakfast room was not labeled and did not have an automatic door closer so while we ate breakfast, children leaving the rest room regularly left the bathroom door open to the food area.Yuck! The WiFi worked less than half the time and we were forced to leave our rooms to use the breakfast room to access Wifi. While we worked on the computer, my husband kept hearing the sound of water running. We figured out that thesound he was hearing was from the toilet off the breakfast room. It too was broken and they were losing water at about a gallon a minute. The property is well located to the park. While I understand the challenges that the seasonality presents these owners, I have to say that next time I'm going to try to get a room at the Comfort Inn down the road.

Room Tip: Go down the road to the Comfort Inn!

Need to upgrade EVERYTHING. There are so many to mention but I will only write about the most upsetting experience! My nephew got hurt from the swing. The chain broke and he fell while swinging up - landed on his chest and had a minor cut and scrape on his arm. When we reported it to the night staff, the guy in the office told my sister, "It's just a cut!" It was a painful cut. I saw my nephew flew off that swing...I know it hurt him bad. No sympathy whatsoever.

We stayed at Western Holiday Inn during our 3 week trip across the US. The motels is just a short jaunt to Sequoia National Park and it does have great views. Be that as it may, the beds were uncomfortable, the carpeting was very dirty (socks and feet were black from the rug), the overstuffed chair in the room was so soiled I didn't want to sit in it, the dresser had so many handles off it not all the drawers could be opened to use, there were long black hairs in the tub area, and to beat all the water pressure fell to just a trickle after just lathering up. Would ot recommend this motel.
