Nice clean room. Cute fishing theme decor. Friendly helpful staff!! Great location above the river. Very close to check in point for River rafting. Air conditioner worked great!! Only negative was the too soft beds as I prefer a firm mattress.

After reading the reviews for the Sequoia Lodge, we decided to book a room for our one night stay in Kernville. The reviews were right on! This is a great place to stay. Susan (one of the owners) at the front desk was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable and had a rustic decor. It comes equipped... More

We spent one lovely and peaceful night at this great lodge. The entire facility was very clean and well appointed. We stayed in room 105 and loved it. The room had a great comfortable bed with nice soft linens. The kitchen area has a microwave, mini fridge and a small sink to wash dishes. The lodge provides plates, cups, glasses,... More

Friendly owners on premises. Quiet, single-floor motel so no elephants overhead. It was 102 out but the AC worked great. Next to river. Very cute and clean little cabins for a good price. Comfortable, shady sitting areas all around well-groomed property. They even had a couple grills and a fish cleaning station. I would definitely stay here again. was on... More

I definitely recommend this place. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the area all around is very clean and free of litter. It's very easy to see that the owners/managers run a first class place here. In-room wifi is strong. The hotel backs up directly onto the Kern River and there are several nice, clean spots to sit and have a... More

Check in was easy and staff were friendly. It is a little outside of Kernville, but easy drive. The hotel is directly next to the river. Walk down the steps and the river is right there, no one else on river, great swimming holes, quiet, beautiful, clean. The hotel has several sitting areas outside and really nice and clean. Room...

I was here assigned to a fire. When there is a fire near Kernville, there are few rooms as the firefighter, helicopter crews, and tourist are competing for a limited number of rooms. Often you take what you can get, and some hotels and resorts are better than others. Sequoia Lodge is great, it is nicer than several others we... More

Quite the little gem. Susan was great with booking and met us when we arrived. Deck overlooking the river is great for sundowners. The room looks like it was refurbished recently and is clean. Coffee is provided and water is in the fridge. The reason for 4 stars is I stayed in Room 5 and the aircon and fan are... More

From the parking lot, to the room, it is inevitable that the owners care about their property. Besides the fact that the rooms are very clean , their are extra touches everywhere. It is also nice to be out of town on the river. You can not go wrong with this property.

What a gem! This lodge is just outside of town so its really quiet and peaceful when the rest of town can get pretty hectic. Perfect little rooms with really comfortable beds plus thoughtful amenities such as coffee and popcorn. Spotlessly clean and well-kept, Oscar & Susan (and dachshund, Chico) take pride in this establishment and it really shows. Beautiful... More
