“It's alright but would not stay there again”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We chose this place for its location, that's its major feature and that's how they can charge what they charge for their rooms.
Other than that, it's a really old motel, the rooms are smelly and tired and not very practical. To go to our room we had to go up some spiral staircase which is not pleasant at all when you need to bring some big suitcases to your room. We're in our thirties, so it wasn't much of a problem for us, but I could see how it could be really challenging for some people.

The most uninterested office ladies! Cockroaches in suite! Smelt like mold. Maid service doesn't actually put fresh sheets on! The rooms are absolutely filthy. If your looking for a breakfast your choices are tang and nasty pastries. When waiting for a taxi cab back to the airport I asked for water and was told there is some a few miles away! Every morning we stayed they decided it was a good idea to start construction at 9 am pounding the floors above us. Over priced dump! When asked about swimming in the river I was told it was stagnit... IT'S A FLOWING RIVER! She told me to go the park to do so because up there the snow melt is still flowing.... Really?.. We had two rooms with 8 total people one suite but only allowed a 2 towels for the pool unless you bickered at them to grab more for you. Don't stay here there's plenty of other choices nearby.

3riversgirl, front desk at Sierra Lodge, responded to this review, August 31, 2013
These guests were allowed to use private cell phones of the employees, a front desk person got them a private tour of the Sequoia Park with lunch included. When one of the guests got sick it was a front desk person that called and got them in to the local clinic.
A yes they were told that swimming in the river when its low with extended 100 degree temperatures can make people sick because its slow and stagnate in places. We have water bottles for sale if requested and every room is stocked with free water that's replaced every day.
Our hotel has never had cockroaches. Our staff went out of the way for these guests, even one of the housekeepers stayed late to clean their room because they wanted their kid to be able to sleep in.

My first impression was that this hotel was in a great location, well-positioned to get to Sequoia National Park. After that, my impressions went down.

Our motel room was very tired looking although it was clean and functional, and adequate for a one night stopover. We had a quiet night's sleep and the bed and bathroom were OK.

Breakfast was really poor. It consisted of packets of cereal (but no milk other than single-serve portions for tea/coffee), sliced orange, and tired looking Danish pastries served on a display cabinet. We went elsewhere.

Very pleased I booked this hotel. So convenient for sequoia park. It takes so long to come through and the last downhill section went on and on. Motel well laid out, good sized rooms. Everything clean and tidy. Comfortable beds. Only observation was that the decor and furnishings/fitments rather dated. That said happy overall and would come back again, though not sure for more than one night. Friendly staff and places to eat locally. Pizza factory good pizzas if a limited atmosphere. A takeaway place really but you can eat in.

We booked 2 nights here on a 17 night US trip, it was not good by any standards and expensive. I paid for a suite but the bedroom had no A/C the kitchen was cramped and my childs 'queen bed' which was what was advertised was a bed settee which we has to make up ourselves. The breakfast was the worst I have ever experienced in a hotel. The staff uninterested. I would not recommend it at all

I slept like a baby but my relatives could not sleep because of the noise. I think there are some animals arround and they are very noisy. I love this feature though... my relatives are more city-people. is one hour far from Sequoia Natl. Park, so it is great for one day visit to the park and one-night stay.

A group of five booked the "honey moon house", which was promoted as a two story house which slept 6 people. In fact it is an integral part of a larger building, has no views, is right next to the road, no privacy, is opposite the office. Honey mooners be warned.

The furnishing were average, mixed, rickety, dusty. The art deco kitchen clean, functional, and must have been built in the 70's. the air conditioning could only be adjusted by management: it was set on cold (was too cold) when we arrived, so had it turned off. Later when it was hot, management could not turn it on ! Worst of all the single toilet and shower were in the same room so we spent the entire stay waiting or wondering for it to be available. The breakfast was very basic.
