“Very relaxing and friendly in a beautiful setting on the Kern River.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2011

The owners were very accomodating and friendly. The entire property was well kept-up. Nice outdoor areas to relax and enjoy the mountains and river. Plenty of tables and chairs outdoors. We had a great game of "Hearts" on the patio. Rooms were cute with small kitchens (sink, refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, dishes and silverware.) Everyone was very friendly--fun talking to the guests in the common areas. It was a great experience and we will return and stay longer. The people in Kernville were really friendly too. Good restaurants. Don't miss the Museum in Kernville. It is a gem!

Kernville is a beautiful area and this is a great place to explore. The Kern River is just down some steps from the lodge and Pat and Keith make you feel very welcome..

The rooms have fridges, microwaves. coffee makers (excellent coffee!) and are serviced every day, There are gas-fired bbq's outside. Everything is close by, there's a store about 2 miles down the road that sells most things you might need as well as fishing tackle and freshly cooked bbq'd chicken. I really enjoyed staying here and if I'm in the area again then this will be the place I'll choose.

Excellent place, very friendly owners, great location. My room was artfully decorated (fly fishing was the purpose of my trip to Kernville), the kitchenette had all the amenities, and the bed was very comfortable with one of those over-the-mattress extra layer of fluff.
I will come back with my family for sure!

My husband and I always go there for our yearly trip to the Kern. The Staff is great and are very caring. So peaceful there. The place is always clean and great. It's our home away from home. We love it there. My husband and I always catch fish there too. Thank you Sequoia Lodge for being a great place. Till next year.

Room Tip: Use Samon Eggs or Power Bait to catch a fish.

This is a marvelous find along the Kern River, the place is clean and very, very accommodating, and the proprietors are very nice and helpful as they can be. I would heartily recommend this motel to anyone that is in the area. In the summer you would want to have a reservation since the Kern River Valley fills pretty rapidly, and there is only one handicapped room here, so if you need that, reserve early.

The property as well as the staff were delightful... we could not have wished for more on our halfway mark from Yosemite to Vegas. We could have driven straight through, but it would have been rushed so we decided to take the scenic route through the Sequoia Forrest and we are so glad we did. This hotel is right on the Kern River and was a wonderful place all around.

Room Tip: Ask for a room closest to the river..

What a great place, convenient to Sequoia National Forest. Excellent fishing, big healthy rainbow trout waiting to be caught. Nice little garden with paths down near the rushing river. A patio overlooking the river, with hummingbird feeders where we watched the birds for hours. Be sure to have a steak dinner at Johnny McNally's, 10 minutes up the road, and don't miss the Trail of 100 Giants, just about 45 minutes away. Pat and Kieth were so friendly, we felt like we were staying with friends, rather than in a hotel. We hope to be back soon, and stay longer.
