Great staff, clean cabins and a wonderful atmosphere. The kids loved the large pool and seeing the goats and sheep in the back fenced area. There are limited options this close to the park, and I highly recommend this to anyone in the area. We would stay here again!

We were very pleasantly surprised by the Lazy J Ranch. Three Rivers is super convenient for trips to Sequoia. The hotel has about 18 rooms set around a pool. Rooms weren't big, but had everything we needed, and were very clean and tidy. The hotel staff were welcoming and friendly, and they had a large selection of DVDs that you... More

Our family stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is comprised of individual cabin style rooms of average size. Some rooms have a view of mountains, others did not have much of a view. The 2 cabins at the end were quite close to the only road in town and pretty noisy with traffic. The very loud air conditioner did... More

This was a great place to stay when visiting Sequoia and Kings Canyon NPs. Rooms were in duplex, so the duplexes were in a horseshoe around lovely grounds and the pool. It was fun to sit outside and listen to the kids laughing and playing in the pool. Continental breakfast was adequate. We picked it up in the office and... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night during the 4th of July weekend when visiting the Sequoia National Park. The hotel is about 3 miles from the park entrance. It was so good that 2 of our husbands wanted to skip camping and stay here the whole time. There is river access and a pool and volleyball court and... More

Right on the highway when driving into Three Rivers from Visalia and parts west. Really a sweet place. . .Felt right at home. Nothing fancy but remember this is country. Great place to stay when visiting Sequoia National Park, Mineral King and Lake Kaweah. Very pretty grounds and a nice pool.

We travelled around California for a month in June 2016 and used to roughing it if required but this was the worst place we stayed. We wanted to make the most of the parks so picked here to stay here. After a big walk in Sequoia NP we arrived at the Lazy J ranch about 6.30pm. We asked the receptionist... More

Arrived after a long drive, easy check in, nice staff. We requested a different unit to be nearer the river and the young lady was great, think we ended up in a better place. All clean but a bit tired and seemed lacking a lttle maintenance, lighting was poor, tv patchy gtreat views out the back over river and mountains.... More

First time visitors and we absolutely LOVED the place! It's a perfect way to "camp" without doing the tent camp experience but yet still have the feel. Yes, the rooms are a little dated BUT it's no different from other actual hotels. The pool was a huge plus and the cottages had lots of shade! Staff was very friendly and... More
