“Nice rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We stayed here on our way to Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Parks. We got stuck in SoCal traffic on the way, so did not check in until 9 pm. The staff were very friendly and our room was great, with a very comfortable bed, but there was really no place to eat nearby. We were directed to a gas station on the other side of 198 that had a Quizno's and Pizza Hut, but those were shut down by the time we got there. If you are coming in late, make sure you eat beforehand.
There is just one washing machine and one dryer, so if you are planning to do laundry here, you may have to wait. We were happy that laundry was even available. We did not use the pool (again, we were too late), but it looked nice. Breakfast was fine - waffles, yogurt, and coffee that disappeared quickly but was also replaced quickly, so very fresh. By the way, if you get a room close to the registration desk, you will be awake early. The staff use a cart to prepare for the breakfast, and it rumbled down the hall several times before breakfast was served. My husband is an early riser anyway, and I wanted to get on the road, so not a huge deal, but if you want to sleep in, ask for a room in a quieter spot.
Visalia was a good stop on the way to the national parks, but if you plan to enter the parks on multiple days, you may want to stay in one of the parks. The accommodations aren't nearly as nice, but you would only have to join the lineup to enter the parks once.

This hotel is conveniently located off of Highway 99 and the 198. The room was very clean and the bed wonderfully comfortable. The price was reasonable considering this Is summer. Breakfast items were just ok. Front desk very friendly.

My room was very big with a king bed, oversize chair w/ottoman and a work desk and chair. Everything in it was spotless and one of the best rooms that I've stayed at in years. The location was very quiet and next to a nice park and golf course. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. Great complimentary breakfast with lots of choices. I highly recommend this hotel.

We wanted to go to Sequoia Nat'l Park and Kings Canyon Nat'l Park on a tight budget. The hotel is a smaller hotel but it is quiet and clean. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The pool is small but one of the cleanest clearest pools I have seen at a hotel in a long time. It is not very far to Visalia if you take Hwy 63. Don't take Hwy 99 into Visalia. It was a great hotel and a great way to stay within budget.

My wife and I stayed at this property four nights during a visit to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. I'd have to say our experience was mostly positive, but still mixed.

Service at the front desk was cordial and efficient. The property has indoor corridors and an elevator, so it’s not as motel-like as some Comfort Inns. It’s also set off from the highway and located at the edge of town, so it’s pretty quiet.

Our room was clean and spacious enough, and contained a refrigerator, microwave and flat screen TV, but the free wireless Internet signal was a bit spotty. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were almost comically small. The appliances and plumbing worked fine, but the towels were rather thin. The nightly rate was very reasonable.

The complimentary breakfast area offered a decent variety; available items included scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit, and yogurt. The staff sometimes had a hard time keeping up with demand during the busy periods – for example, they ran out of coffee three of the four mornings we were there.

All in all, we had a pleasant stay. However, if you are thinking of using this or any other Visalia hotel as your base while visiting Sequoia National Park, you should understand that while it’s about a 45-minute drive to the park entrance, there’s an additional hour of driving from the entrance over narrow and winding mountain roads to reach the Giant Trees. If you want to cut between 30-40 minutes from your commute, you might consider staying in the small rustic town of Three Rivers.

While the Wifi was problematic, and I miss the old staff had been there for years and seemed to have disappeared, this hotel is still a GREAT deal! The carpeting in the rooms is brand new, the rooms are exceptionally clean, and the current staff still very helpful. The complimentary breakfast is of good quality and with many options. We go into Visalia a few times a year and this is still my hotel of choice.
