Family of 2 adults and two young teens, we were visiting Sequoia National Park. Didn't feel like paying the summer rates of $180-$220/night in Three Rivers. No point. Drive just 30 minutes to Exeter and pay $70 week nights, and $75 weekend rate. Don't get ripped off by the tourist prices at Three Rivers.

The hotel is very clean. Two big queen size beds and a very effective air conditioner. Unlike some places the sheets aren't threadbare, and the lightweight blanket is very comfortable. The mattress is nice, firm enough that it doesn't sag, or the two people spend the night bumping into each other.

The shower fits us over 6 foot tall comfortably. [Most hotels put the shower in a bathtub and the water comes out at a height suitable for pygmies.] The rooms are much more spacious than typical roadside hotel/motels. Even has a large wardrobe & hanging space where we could fit four huge suitcases. Many hotels, two people can't pass each other in the room. An earlier guest commented that the bathrooms are small; on the contrary, they are big enough, and have ample head-height that it doesn't feel claustrophobic.

Very clean and tidy grounds, nice little pool. Sensibly the modernisation not only provides fridge, microwave and flat-screen TV, it also includes double-insulated windows. Great for noise reduction and environmentally sensible in this climate. We noticed that all light bulbs are energy-efficient compact fluorescents. The office has a sign say "Certificate of Appreciation", as the Kaweah sponsors the local police K-9 unit. Good community spirit.

Also enjoyed the meals at East - West Restaurant 1/4 mile back along Park Street.

70$ for a clean room, nice swiming pool, ice machine, lcd, double bed. After similar quality for 200$ in Grand Canyon we are very happy. Nice town with pizza and msny more restaurants with no crowd at all. Like it. Near Visalia.

I really loved staying at this quiet little family-run motel. The room was very clean and I felt safe. As a single woman traveling by herself, it is important to feel comfortable and safe in your surroundings, and this place fit the bill. Staff was friendly and accommodating. I was very pleasantly surprised.

Room Tip: I stayed in a room that was in the center of the complex and it was quiet.

great price, ultra clean and walk to downtown. Exeter is what america used to be, and this place reminds me of that. why pay more for less, let's hear it for family owned motels. great place to ride from, great area. good antique pricing, we travel a lot and this is a great place for the money

Nothing special, but a great place to spend the night, get a good shower, good nights sleep, and not have any surprising events. The train is a bit loud, but isn't very active at night, so it raelly didn't matter.

Fine place to stay, great value.

Exeter is a really nice teensy downtown, too, with lots of nice places to eat, and a good walking business district.

Not many places to stay here. This one was cheaper. Didn't expect much. Found a clean, roomy room. Quiet and off a quiet street. Manager went out of her way to help us as we were there due to car trouble. Definitely recommended!

Room Tip: our a.c. took a while to cool the room - might want to check a.c. first.
