My family stayed here for one night and chose it because of its location close to the entrance of Sequoia National Park. Before making our reservation, I read the reviews on Trip Advisor and checked out its own website as well. I have to agree with some of the other reviews in that its website is nicer than the actual property is in reality.
The "cabins" are actually little mobile homes. Our cabin was decorated nice enough ... a bird nests theme ... but it could have been cleaner. There were spider webs (with spiders) in many corners and the shower wasn't as clean as I would have liked. Also, the shower was very low, so while it was fine for children, adults have to crouch down or else hit your head on the shower ceiling. Toiletries were limited to a little bar of very drying soap - no shampoo, lotion, etc. Not even a box of tissue. The coffee service wasn't so great either - just a dusty little coffee maker with 2 pouches of "Cafe Parisienne" coffee.
There was an air conditioner in the room which blew cool air, not cold, but enough to make it comfortable. The t.v. was fine - good reception. Of our two beds, one was comfortable and the other one was hard as rock. It was quiet at night, so no complaints about noise. We were able to park our car right outside the cabin which was convenient.
We didn't use it, but the pool looked clean and if we had stayed longer, I'm sure we would have tried it out. Chris in the office was friendly. I only spoke with her briefly to get the key and pay for the room.
Overall, I'd say the motel is decent, but for over $100 a night, I expect a bit more. Three nights later we stayed in a place in Pismo Beach for only $30 more and got pure luxury (see Mission Inn of Pismo, if interested). But in this area, you are a bit limited in choices. I'd check around some other places first before staying here again.
