“Overpriced due to location?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Stayed here as it was near Sequoia National Park. A bit pricey if you compare to your standard city hotel. Old school check in with a piece of paper and a real key. Nobody was there at checkout so we used the drop box.

This review is for Room 5 only, not attached to the main motel. The office is attached to the main motel. It took us a minute to find it as the sign is small.

The Good: This room is essentially a large studio cottage. Good room for 3. Full kitchen. The was a pull down full size bed, so this would be good for a family of 4 max with small kids. A couple of sitting chairs next to a wood burning stove. The A/C did a great job in 100 degree weather. You own parking space right next to the unit and a small porch. Decent free Wifi.

The Bad: We had an ant problem. The TV is old and had poor reception (not a big deal as we were there for the Sequoia's. I didn't see a phone in the room, but I didn't loo either. The bathroom sink is a bit small with no real counter space. Pool is small. The slow drive into the park to see the big trees is about an hour of really windy road. You may want to double check the north entrance if you are coming from Northern CA.

We stayed in Cabin 4 a two bedroom cabin. It was a bit small, especially the second bedroom, as we were two couples with a toddler each. But otherwise we loved it, the patio was awesome for a late night chat.
Even though the entrance to Sequoia is only 4 mi it takes over an hour to get to the Giant Forest Museum where most of the attractions are located. And it is a winding hard to stomach drive with hairpin bends.
Better to stay inside the park if possible. But this worked out great for us for a last minute trip plan.

The lady was super helpful and friendly. Basic utensils available in the kitchen too. No dishwasher though.

this motel is very convenient to the exit of Sequoia National Park. It's very over priced, however, with no amenities in the room. In fact, it was the priciest hotel of our trip. The sink is right in the room next to one of the beds, so you wake anyone else sleeping in the room when you use the sink. The pool was non operational as well. The proprietress was very agreeable, but you would do well to go a little farther down the road from the park exit and stay at one of the hotels available there.

Not too far from the Giant Forest, confortable and amazing rooms and very nice the swimming pool. The propretary is very gentle and helpful.
The price is not so cheap, but it's a good deal if you consider the place. Unfortunately there is no breakfast, just the coffee machine in the room.
No possible to book and check the availability on line, u have to write emails to the proprietary, but she answer very quickly.

Our family had a great experience here and would stay again. If you want to get away from the commercial atmosphere and feel like another "number" stay here. (Just don't forget your shampoo). We loved the "woodsy" feel and our room had its own theme. Super cute rooms. If you are looking for flat screen TVs and a breakfast at your doorstep don't stay here. A bakery is. 5 miles from the hotel.

This place was just wunderful. Is is small, but very cute and one has an wunderful garden in front of the cabin, where one can sit at the evening and drink wine while watching the stars.
Outstanding was the motel warden! She was very nice. Ask her for a bottle opener, and you get wine glasses without asking. Such service is missing at most places.
If you are near this place and look for a motel this here is the place to go!

Room Tip: We were at the "Room for 2" and it was very nice!
