“Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We stayed for a night in this hotel before going to Sequoia National Park. The room was big and comfortable though the place is a bit old but is clean and well maintained. Breakfast was ok and the staff are pleasant.

Room Tip: choose a garden room a little bit more in price but worth it

My family and I stayed here recently on our trip through California. The staff (those we spoke to on the phone, front desk, housekeeping, and restaurant) were all very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, well-maintained, and comfortable. The grounds are very well maintained and provide a very pleasant, relaxing atmosphere. The pool was great after a full day of hiking in Sequoia National Park.

The King rooms overlooking the garden and pool are clean and comfortable. As we were hiking in King's Canyon we had a parcel of dehydrated food sent to us at the hotel to pick up on arrival. When I called a few days before to find out if it had arrived the staff couldn't find it. After calling the sender and obtaining the name of the person who had signed for it, they eventually found it. We went on a first hike and left some things behind in the same box. A week later, they again didn't have a clue what had happened to it and were at complete loss as to what to do, complete lack of initiative. One of the manager eventually found it. We had breakfast there, not very good. My pancake was horribly sweet and tasted of something straight out of a packet; the hash brown wasn't cooked properly. Dinner was quite good but the service was very slow, despite the fact they weren't many customers.

Room Tip: The rooms furthest away from reception are the quietest. The king rooms overlooking the garden and p...

We appreciate the time you took to submit this review . The Lamp Liter does have a shipping and receiving and we did have your parcel logged in as received however it was a bit difficult in locating your parcel but of course we did locate it. To say there was no "initiative" I must disagree as I was at the front desk when they received your call and we made every effort to locate the parcel and did so within a reasonable amount of time. I regret you were not happy with your food at our Grill. Perhaps eating rich food after a diet of dehydrated food was to much of an undertaking but I digress. I thank you again for your review and for your patronage.

I recently stayed here at the Lamp Liter, and totally enjoyed my visit! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed the grounds, they were beautifully maintained! The food on site was also very good! We enjoyed an afternoon at the very clean pool, it was peaceful and relaxing. I would highly recommend this location to my friends and family

Room Tip: I always request rooms away from the main road!

For anyone looking for a relaxing and meticulously landscaped getaway, Lamp Liter Inn in Visalia California is your bet! From the moment you arrive you are treated like family. There is never any rush, just total comfort and relaxation. Lamp Liter Inn also offers complete and beautiful banquet accommodations with a darling restaurant, delicious choice of food and first class customer service.

Room Tip: All rooms are very fabulous. I like the rooms closest to the pool.

We stayed here for one night on our way to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. We got exactly what we hoped for (a peaceful, comfortable night), with the bonus of a large outdoor swimming pool, very nicely landscaped gardens, and restaurants and shopping at the mall just across the main road. We had to make a night-before change in our travel itinerary. Searching online, we saw that this lodge was offering great rates and had very good reviews. As other reviews say, it is an older, basic facility, but it has been kept in good condition, with the landscaped grounds and pool being its best feature. There seem to be 4 bungalows by the garden pool, but we stayed in the main buildings. Free wifi in the rooms. Classic 2-story building with outside entrances. There is no breakfast, but there is an shopping center across the street with a Starbucks, KMart, supermarket, and several small restaurants. We had a better/more-authentic-than-average Mexican dinner at El Rosal. The staff was friendly and efficient. The evening clerk told us about El Rosal. Our only issue was the Google Maps gave us incorrect directions. You should take the County Center Dr/Main St exit from Hwy 128, not
Demaree St.
