We stayed overnight while on a road trip. It's location is nice, across from the river, but that is inconsequential unless you book a room on the river side of the motel. I cannot speak for the other rooms, but I would not recommend the queen rooms. There are only 2 queen rooms and you cannot tell from the room... More

The front desk and housekeeping were excellent. The room was clean. I was stranded in Kernville due to car troubles. Prescision Automotive in Lake Isabella was fixing my car and recommended the Kernville Inn. I stayed there one night, Monday, August 1. My car was going to be ready on Tuesday, the second. I asked if I could leave my... More

Great price, clean room, comfortable beds, friendly staff, nice grounds, pool, good location, just what we wanted. We didn't want fancy or anything below average! The Kernville Inn was perfect for our needs and would go back without any hesitation.

We stayed here for a long weekend with a group of friends. The rooms are clean, the bed is comfortable, and the location is great. There are a few shops to wander through in the area and the main draw is the river directly behind the inn. Cheryl's next door is a good spot for a meal, as well as... More

Kernville Inn 8 ladies of my motorcycle group made reservations for 4 rooms several months ago. We arrived on Saturday 6/18 around 4PM. We checked in and unloaded our bikes to our respective rooms. We were surprised to find the little fridges open and warm. We all had things needing to be kept cold so having to first close them... More

Five guys on a motorcycle adventure. Our needs are basic: clean, dark, quiet, and with safe parking for the bikes. This motel is of the older fashion design with all one story rooms in an L shape around the yard. Great fun sitting on the veranda watching the antics of the squirrels. All criteria were met but there is no... More

A quaint, rustic motel best suited for couples. Sleeping area adequate but bathroom needs major update. Bathrooms like large closet. No kleenex. Price was not bad for the holiday weekend. They have two adirondack chairs per room that our group put in a large circle in the front of our rooms so we could watch all the activities going on... More

We booked a last minute trip and stayed at the Kernville inn. When we pulled up I was scared, the place looks less than impressive from the street, however I was totally charmed when we got our room. It was very spacious, with a small kitchen and slider that went out to a private enclosed patio with a grill if... More

I have to admit that I have a soft place in my heart for the Kernville Inn. We stay here every year in October on our annual motorcycle trip to Death Valley. The rooms are comfortable in that old school riverside log motel way. Porches and chairs allow one to sit outside and visit or just enjoy a nice evening.... More

The room was a decent size with a comfortable bed and plenty of parking. The door to the room was tricky to open and the shower cubicle was tiny. Plus there was nowhere to hang your clothes except a coat rack. However it was clean and ok for one night although it was a bit noisy. Free wifi was good.
