My son and I stayed here over the Memorial Weekend 5/30/2016 in Room 8 for 2 nights. For the price of $131, it was not worth it. But all hotels were overpriced for the memorial weekend so we had no choice. The room was very small. The ad said you can request for a small cot or bed but they... More

I was lucky enough to be told about this place threw a friend, and I am glad he told me about it. Its located right next to the river. I watched the rafters going down river from my patio while I sipped on a beer. So relaxing. The service from check in to check out was great. The family run... More

We called last minute, and wanted a place over looking the water--with a dog. We were given room #9-closest to the water. Close to everything in Kernville. Certainly not fancy, but it worked. Probably best midweek between the weekend warriors. Owners were nice, and we slept well.

The room could be described somewhere between quaint and tatty depending on what you like. I liked it. The setting was like something from a wild west movie set in a lovely town. The people were friendly and although breakfast was just a few nibbles to start the day off with it was accompanied by coffee that the owner was... More

I have visited Kernville dozens of times, either camping or getting a room. The family that runs the place are great. I will definitely stay here again. Hotel is close to shopping and great restaurants. Thanks Annette!

We stayed here one night, we had two rooms, the hosts (Owners) were very friendly and professional and ready to do what ever to make our stay enjoyable. The continental breakfast was a nice touch and available early in the morning. The rooms were clean and comfortable and ready when promised. The location to town, restaurants and the river was...

The rooms are taken care to reflect warmth, cleanliness and charm. The Owners, John and Annette go out of their way to see you have everything you need for an enjoyable stay. They are right on the river, and a quick walk to town. Stores are downtown to shop for gifts and up the hill across the bridge for food... More

Even though the lodge is located next to the river, the accommodations were less than adequate. The room had no blankets on the bed; the toilet broke (we had to manually flush the toilet; the floor had a hole in it under the carpet; the television is from the 90's; the lamps didn't work right; the remote control stuck and...

This inn was very comfortable. Old style. But the bed was good and the place was clean. Right next to the river and eateries. A great stopover for a couple if relaxing days. Wifi good. Quiet as well. Showers and other amenities great.
