“close to Sequoia”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We spent 3 days in Tulare to be able to visit Sequoia. Always appreciate the refridge and microwave at BW especially when we are on the road. I agree with the former report that the breakfast was good but in a crowded area. That is often the case at breakfast time in the hotels that provide breakfast! Nice to have 2 for 1 drink tickets. We were not able to use those but felt the special drink prices at $8 and $9 were steep. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful.
Our favorite place to dine was Figaros Mexican Grill in a strip mall near the hotel.

Room Tip: always an upper floor is quieter. We had partiers next door on Sat night but with the AC and TV we...

I found Best Western Plus, Town & County Lodge, while browsing online, as I was coming from the San Francisco Bay, planning my birthday/vacation time, to visit with my niece and grand niece whom are living in a neighboring town, with in-laws. I sure happy I booked this room for 3 nights. My room was clean and comfortable, staff friendly as well a guests, too! Enjoyed a hot breakfast, with many choice, each morning. Also used the pool which was nice as well. Also, there are so many stores, eating choices, etc, which are all so close. If you don't like lugging your stuff up the stairs, then don't stay on the 2nd floor, as there is not a elevator. Minor complaint about the room (I stayed 3 nights), would like to had towels racks (notices in room even say, to be green, re-use towels), which I would have, if I could dry them. Also, a little space, around fridge/microwave area would be nice. Bottom line, YES, I would recommend and YES, I would/will be staying again.

Room Tip: Only tip I have, if you have lots of stuff to get in your room, stay on the bottom floor, as there i...

We stayed at this Best Western on June 8th. We arrived around 4:30 p.m. and check in took at least 45 minutes. There was one gal at the front desk and she was too busy answering the phones than checking in new customers. Terrible customer service.

The room was nice. It had a king bed, chair with ottoman, desk, a/c, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and alarm clock. The bed, pillows and linens were comfortable. The room looked clean.

Andrew in the lounge was very personable as we were the only one in the lounge. We had hoped to have dinner there but they didn't serve much more than bar snacks, so be prepared to eat elsewhere.

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.

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.
