“Great place close to Sequoia National Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

We had been on the road for a number of hours heading to Sequoia National Park. It was a pleasant surprise. The check in and out was very prompt. The breakfast was exactly as expected. Enough choices with hot foods as well. Andrew at the lounge made us feel extremely comfortable. We would recommend to anyone wanting a pleasant stay near Sequoia National Park.

Very nice experience. Friendly, helpful staff. Nice room. Only complaint, you couldn't take breakfast back to your room. The breakfast was excellent, except that it was so crowded, there was not much room to sit and they kept running out of food, which they did replenish, but you had to wait for it.

I live in the sf Bay Area. I come here often to visit family. Booked a room online. Turned out needed it one day later. I called the hotel 2x To be told "call the call center " emailed the CS as well as called. Went to check in to be told I was being charged for the prior night with no concern. 9 hotels in the area. CHOOSE ANOTHER ! They don't care ! I'm even a diamond member and still treated like dirt. This is a very small town. What a shame.

BWTulare, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Town & Country Lodge, responded to this review, June 7, 2013
Thank you for sharing your experience regarding the no show reservation at our hotel, we apologize for the inconvenience this caused you. We strive to insure that our guests have a pleasurable experience with our hotel from the time a reservation is made to the time our guests check out. I would like to provide an explanation in hopes that you’ll understand it was not our intention to disrespect you in anyway.

You reserved with Priceline and were charged by them the moment the reservation was made. Since it was made through a 3rd party company and not directly with us, we our bound by terms and agreements to not alter the reservation. Although inconvenient, the guest must call the 3rd party company to make any changes or cancellations. Once the 3rd party makes the changes they either send a new reservation or call the hotel directly and our staff can proceed forward.
In this situation, we never received an updated reservation from Priceline, thus couldn’t make the change, and the end result was a valued guest extremely inconvenienced.

I do hope you will give us a call so that we can discuss this situation and determine a solution that will make the worse experience you’ve had into an inconvenience made right by the hotel.

We booked this hotel through Hotwire and stayed there on our trip from Yosemite to Las Vegas. When we arrived late at night around 9pm, we were more than pleasantly surprised. The hotel has free parking and a huge parking lot. Check-in was quick and we had the first room around the corner - definitely a plus if you are tired after a long trip! The room was spacious with two queen size beds and the shower was super refreshing.

As a big plus, this hotel includes a bar, where we were able to get a burger and fries and a few beers before going to bed. Thumbs up to Andrew, such a nice barkeeper! We also had some nice talks with some of the other hotel guests. Many seem to be regulars at this hotel and you can tell that from the athmosphere. The hotel bar was also really cheap for a hotel, and they had 2-for-1 coupons in the hotel room, so you could end up spending $3 for two domestic beers. Breakfast is served in the same room and was satisfying. They offer both hot and cold items and a waffle maker.

There is so much more to the hotel that we were not able to check out, such as the outside pool. I have to say that the hotel was a more than positive surprise and that I would stay there again and again.

Room Tip: None of the rooms is located towards the street, so they are all quiet.

In town to visit family in Visalia and Tulare and Sequoia NP, we selected the Best Western in Tulare and happy we did. The room was large enough to earn the term "mini-suite" and be quite comfortable. The fixtures, carpet, paint and all were in good condition. The lines and towels were good, and freshly laundered. The King bed was in good shape although pretty hard for our tastes.

Breakfast was hot, with choices from an English muffins to several cold cereals to scrambled eggs with fried potatoes and sausage links. The fridge was small but kept stuff cold, though the freezer wouldn't quite freeze the three 12 oz water bottles over night. The microwave did popcorn just right! The staff was pleasant and helpful. We left a camera charger and they called and said they would mail it to us.

Our three nights were nice, and this one will definitely stay on our options list!

Another enjoyable stay at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Town and Country Lodge. This motel was booked full for the weekend. However, the service was excellent as usual. I have stayed in most of the other motels in the area over the years. Prices may be a bit cheaper but, with everything included, I always return to this Best Western motel. Personnel from the front desk down to the care takers are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are always very clean. With the addition of the new key card system, it adds to the safety of the guest. The breakfast that is offered in the morning is very good with a lot of choices. I will be back to stay at this motel in the coming months. The front entryway remolding adds to the appearance of this motel.

We have family in the area and end up visiting three or four times a year. We used to stay at the one star, discount motel next door but, the noise, clientele and lack of cleanliness drove us over the BW about six or eight years ago. We've never looked back. Never had a bad experience. And, we can bring our dogs - though we are VERY respectful of the property, clean up after them and follow all the lodge's rules about pets.

The service is always great and management at this BW makes sure that things never get out of hand.

Plus, over the years they keep remodeling and improving!

Room Tip: Their online reservation system has never failed us. Always the best available rates.
