“Nice place in a quiet setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

This is an older hotel. We had four people. Our room was near the road with 2 bedrooms and a connecting bathroom. Each bedroom had a television. The main room had a table with a refrigerator and microwave, Rooms and bath were clean. Breakfast consisted of pastries, cereal and fruit that you picked up in the office. If you are an early riser, get your breakfast the night before and bring to your room, as the office is closed in the morning. The check in clerk was friendly and knowledgeable about the area.

Not as generic as the other motel in town. Well maintained but certainly not chic. Kind of a rustic 70s look. Very clean! Pool is not fantastic and you should really plan on going elsewhere for breakfast.

My brother and I stayed here while visiting Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon. We booked through hotels.com and ended up with a 'cottage'. The place had all the essentials, 2 beds, kitchen, and bathroom. There was also a window unit air conditioner. An added perk was the TVs also had a DVD/VCR and the office had movies to borrow. There was a complimentary breakfast which included fruit, bagels, muffins, snack bars, juices, and coffee. The place also had a pool. The ranch is on a farm that has sheep and goats. The location is minutes away from Sequoia National Park. Three Rivers is a small town. There are like 3 restaurants and a convenience store. I highly recommend you plan ahead and buy things beforehand bc the convenience store is pricey. Overall, we had a great experience and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Get a cottage

If you are looking for the "upscale, loaded with amenities" hotel...keep looking. But if what you are seeking is a very nice, clean, comfortable place to stay near the Sequoia Park, this is it!! The cottage we stayed in was spacious, well maintained and equipped with a small kitchenette. when we first arrived and noticed the animals at the rear of the unit we had concerns about the smell. To our surprise there was no odor and the animals were a pleasure to watch. The pool was available although we did not have time to use it. We did take time to sit in front of our cottage and have morning coffee. To me this would be an ideal place to spend several nights and enjoy the beauty of the Sequoia Park. The young lady who handled our check in and out was very nice and accommodated our request. The only negative thing we noticed was the units are equipped with window AC, which was a little noisy. Otherwise good......

Room Tip: Some units are stand alone, while others are like duplex, etc. We chose a stand alone.

The staff at this motel was exceptionally friendly. The property has a very positive atmosphere. The units, however, are quite old and worn. The beds in #2 were way too old and soft to have a comfortable night.

Thank you for staying with us and for your review of our property. You were correct in stating that those beds needed to be replaced and if fact they and several others were replaced just after you stayed with us. Sorry that happened after you stayed with us!

Three Rivers is a very small town with just a handful of restaurants and hotels/motels. We stayed here one night on our way to Sequoia National Park. We loved it. It is a big space with lots of green grass, a nice size pool away from the road, and cute cottage style rooms and cabins to stay in. Beautiful views from all over. Parking is right in front of your cottage door. We were greeted by a nice lady, her daughter and their dog. They had a continental style breakfast that you can take in advance for the next day. It was almost like being on a small farm as they had friendly goats and sheep that you can pet.

We passed the other hotels/motels on our way into the park and we all agreed that this place looked the nicest and the quietest. My teenage girls loved it. Other places had their pool between the parking lot and the main road. Lazy J Ranch is tucked away and we loved the charm of this ranch-style motel. Great value too.

This place is GREAT for families. We had a cabin with a full kitchen, 2 double beds and 2 twins at a very affordable rate. It was quiet, had a pool that the kids loved, a grassy area for badminton, volleyball and play, and goats and animals the kids could enjoy. Continental breakfast could be picked up anytime to accommodate our schedules and the staff was very friendly. They had DVDs and VCR tapes to lend at the office and had a very family-friendly selection. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Any would be great.
