Very nice rooms (they called them duplexes). Quiet. Very homey folks. A little girl was in charge of the desk until I asked a "hard" question. She went and got her mom. Their living quarters are right there behind the main desk. Gave me their desk copy (last copy) of the Park Brochure. They leave a note on the door... More

The location here is at the edge of town. It was quiet. The rooms & cabins were spread out. Our room was small but it was clean & the bed was comfy. Breakfast was not very convenient. For some reason our GPS did not find this address. The pool looked nice, but we were too tired to take a dip.... More

I'm torn as to how to review our stay... It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't great either. We stayed in room four. It was a nice size for the 3 of us and the dog. We had a small kitchen. The bathroom was a bit tiny and had a pocket door that didn't close properly, which would have been ok... More

Located just before Three Rivers on the way to Sequoia National Park. It is an old fashioned establishment but the cabin we stayed in was clean and had everything we needed. The reception staff were helpful and friendly. We were given a map of the town with all the places to eat. Would be happy to stay here again.

Booked this based on the high Tripadvisor ranking. Didn't get the high ranking at all, ranked as the worst hotel of our 3 week trip. The location and set-up of the place is nice with buildings around a central place. The negative is that the hotel has not had any updates in possibly the last 25 years. It looks and... More

The Lazy J is the exact type of hotel you'd expect to see in a tiny town just outside a national park. It's quaint, no-frills approach to lodging was the perfect compliment to a couple days of hanging out with the sequoias. The room was clean and comfortable, and the orientation of small buildings lent a cozy quality to the... More

Cute and quaint. Clean and well taken care of, just not updated. Family/owners were very friendly and accommodating. Swimming pool looked nice although we didn't use it. Breakfast was kinda silly and they don't open the office until 9am, so if you want it before then, they tell you to grab it the night before. There was a couple fruit... More

So reminiscent of days gone by. Lovely setting in a horseshoe configuration around a large swimming pool with open grassed area for children to play. There is also a children's play area and outdoor games to play. Short stroll to a lovely river too. The rooms are clean and spacious and get this, they have mouthwash, shower caps and make... More

I pre-booked this motel for a one night stopover from Yosemite to Los Angeles and it was perfectly placed to enable us to drive through the Sequoia National Park and have an evening's rest before travelling on the next day. We arrived in the dark to a friendly lady in reception who checked us in very easily, explaining that breakfast... More
