Didn't really know what to expect from the Pine Cone, but it was just a cool place to stay. We basically took over the entire motel (only appx 11 or 12 rooms) for a management retreat (also used the banquet facilities for our meeting room). The rooms were super clean, had cool retro wood paneling (and pink bathroom tiles), comfortable...

I visit Kernville periodically for work and was there over the weekend for a memorial service of a co-worker. I took my husband and daughter and our room (#12) was large enough that we each had a room. The decor can only be described as retro - wood paneling and retro furniture. The bed was extremely comfortable and I usually...

This is a great place! Everyone is so friendly. The office is stocked with coffee, tea, and some snacks and a cat to greet you. The rooms are very clean. They go the extra mile with little touches. The beds were fantastic. We will come back for sure.

Spent the weekend here, Friday afternoon to Sunday. Found this wonderful little hotel to have some big features. The owners and facility are dog friendly and made gracious accommodations for our 12-week old puppy. This was our first venture out with our new dog, and with our experience at the Pine Cone, we have hope. Our room was large, and...

So delightful! The rooms are super comfortable. The mattress was great. I even asked where I can get one. Go there! The natural beauty in the area is breathtaking. Take time to walk near the river. If you are a bird watcher bring your binoculars.

I had the best time at "the Cone" this summer. One might not expect such a gem in the middle of nowhere, but prepare to be mildly amazed. The rooms are clean, the appliances modern, and there are innumerable touches of quality at every turn. Your hosts, Roberta and Josh, have an impish sense of fun and imbue it into...

I brought my friend up for the SoCal Rafting Tour. I picked this motel because it had good reviews. I was not disappointed. The front desk person, Kylie Rocha, was very charming and friendly. When I asked for extra pillows, she didn't hesitate to provide them. The hospitality crew led by Pablo Serreno was also very helpful. This was definitely...

Stayed after the local fire, but booked before it started obviously. Had to see the fireworks on July 2nd in nearby Lake Isabella. No way were we going to not go. But there were tons of fire vehicles, which was no big deal. There were even firefighters staying at the Pinecone Inn. We checked in to the nice Australian and...

If you're planning on visiting Kernville, the Pine Cone should be your first choice of places to stay. We had a large group, that we ended up with almost the entire place to ourselves.
