This is a simple motel in Kernville and is the best place to stay. They're friendly, clean and efficient. While it's not fancy at all, it is comfortable and good value and they have a pool. We got to Kernville twice a year and stay...More

Thank you for your review! It's true that we've remained humble with our decor, keeping with the rustic feel, but overall I believe you're right. We have simple amenities depending on the room (such as the standards in rooms 101-107), but we have done a...More

The whole staff is very friendly/accomodating. As for rooms, I'd recommend 111 (sequoia tree), 113 (Manzanita) or if you want some more space there is rooms 110 (kern river) or the 301(the duplex). Those are all options with... More
