On a recent trip to the kern river we stopped in at McNally's Lodge and Restaurant. The service was very nice. The food plentiful however my ribeye was a touch over seasoned and a touch underdone but very good never the less. A little pricey but affordable.

A couple of friends and I had dinner here on the banks of the Kern River. A real old school place with a rustic feel. A nice full bar and pleasant staff. The filet with butterfly shrimp was excellent. Also good drinks and ok wine list. It is fun to have great food in a very out of the way... More

Stayed in a fifth wheel trailer and was very comfortable. The air conditioner was great and bed comfortable. We ate twice at Mcnallys and food and service was very good. They had a well stocked bar for drinks. Most of the little things we needed, were flund at the store. We plan to go back.

We stayed here before moving on to see the Big Trees. Just to shower and rest up after a long day's drive. We stayed in the "cabin" not the camper. I have seen negative things about the campers on here, but the cabin is only a little more expensive and quite luxurious, lol relatively speaking. It had plenty of room... More

You're not there for the room, you are there for the surroundings! A fantastic steak house next door, a walkway bridge that crosses the beautiful Kern River, a patio to sit and sip your cocktail, and views of majestic mountains & tall trees. The room compares to a two star hotel, like Motel 6, but the quiet & beauty of... More

We stayed here because all the motels in Kernville were full. McNally's did not have a motel room available but had a small travel trailer. Trailer was clean but old and cramped. It cooled off at night and we needed heat, but the heater once we found it, did not have any instructions on how to start it. Consequently did... More

McNally's Fairview Lodge is located 15 miles North of the city of Kernville on the Kern River. We only spent the night but our cabin was accommodating and comfortable. We stayed on a Saturday night and it was a quiet, beautiful, star filled evening. We got a great night's sleep too. The Kern River is but a few steps behind... More

This place is very very special. First off the restaurant can cook a steak as well as Ruth Chris, it's amazing how good it is in the middle of nowhere. If you're here and you don't have a steak you are totally missing out. Second, if you're in this country you're probably a camper, hunter, or fisherman who loves a... More

This motel and restaurant is in an out of the way spot (there's no mobile phone or wifi access), but nonetheless seems popular with locals and visitors alike. Our room was good value and of a good size; it was a little bit dated and worn, but perfectly serviceable and included a useful (but noisy) air conditioner. Our room rate... More

This place is the pits. We are on the road about 150 days a year and this so-called motel is the worst of the worst. No TV, no ice machines although they wll sell you a small bag of ice and a cooler. The beds sag to the floor. The curtains?? are a mess as are the blinds. I cannot... More
