Our first night on the way to Sequoia National park. I was really happy to have booked this place.A very cozy, clean and dogfriendly place. A quiet place with a nice garden area. Breakfast was ok, Wifi was good when you head into Sequoia it is gone! Staff was helpful we arrived a bit early.

I pre-booked this motel for a one night stopover from Yosemite to Los Angeles and it was perfectly placed to enable us to drive through the Sequoia National Park and have an evening's rest before travelling on the next day. We arrived in the dark to a friendly lady in reception who checked us in very easily, explaining that breakfast... More

We loved staying for a night in this charming and friendly family run motel. In fact, we liked it so much we looked for a second night but of course it was fully booked - not surprising given the great value for money this place offers. The setting is beautiful, nice pool, very friendly staff, decent continental style breakfast and... More

The rooms were perfectly adequate for an overnight stop. We didn't manage to get breakfast as the office was closed when we returned from our day out and we left too early the next morning. We slept well though and would recommend the pizza factory for good pizza nearby!

The Lazy J is really a slice of Americana. You don't find many places like this anymore. Nothing glitzy, nothing trendy about it. (I should note, though, that the flat screens are brand new and dependable wifi and a good breakfast buffet are free.) Obviously, the Lazy J has been around for a long time, and has been lovingly preserved.... More

We spend one night at Lazy J's after a long day in Sequoia National Park. We enjoyed the refreshing swimming pool and the comfortable atmosphere of a typical American Motel mixed with a small sheep farm. The river is in walking distance and invites for a swim. The rooms were very clean, spatious. WLAN was provided (kids!). For breakfast we... More

The Lazy J Ranch is in a pleasant, scenic location with a good, deep swimming pool. The lady in reception was very helpful and informative. We had two huts/rooms which were fine with ok beds, but pillows rubbish. Close to Sequoia national park which is a lovely park and a must visit. Three Rivers has a couple of places to... More

We found lazy J Ranch to be a quaint little ranch nestled below the mountains with a comfortable charm. It had an authentic motel feel about the place, it was clean, the beds were comfortable, pool was very nice and had a very deep end and it was perfect for the end of the day! Great view of mountains with... More

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!
