This was a great place to stay when visiting Sequoia and Kings Canyon NPs. Rooms were in duplex, so the duplexes were in a horseshoe around lovely grounds and the pool. It was fun to sit outside and listen to the kids laughing and playing in the pool. Continental breakfast was adequate. We picked it up in the office and...

We stayed in this hotel for one night during the 4th of July weekend when visiting the Sequoia National Park. The hotel is about 3 miles from the park entrance. It was so good that 2 of our husbands wanted to skip camping and stay here the whole time. There is river access and a pool and volleyball court and...

Right on the highway when driving into Three Rivers from Visalia and parts west. Really a sweet place. . .Felt right at home. Nothing fancy but remember this is country. Great place to stay when visiting Sequoia National Park, Mineral King and Lake Kaweah. Very pretty grounds and a nice pool.

We travelled around California for a month in June 2016 and used to roughing it if required but this was the worst place we stayed. We wanted to make the most of the parks so picked here to stay here. After a big walk in Sequoia NP we arrived at the Lazy J ranch about 6.30pm. We asked the receptionist...

Arrived after a long drive, easy check in, nice staff. We requested a different unit to be nearer the river and the young lady was great, think we ended up in a better place. All clean but a bit tired and seemed lacking a lttle maintenance, lighting was poor, tv patchy gtreat views out the back over river and mountains....

First time visitors and we absolutely LOVED the place! It's a perfect way to "camp" without doing the tent camp experience but yet still have the feel. Yes, the rooms are a little dated BUT it's no different from other actual hotels. The pool was a huge plus and the cottages had lots of shade! Staff was very friendly and...

The rooms are nice in size, but overall the place just needs maintenance and attention. The "playground" consisted of an old swingset and a slide with a "keep off" sign on it. The office wasn't open in the mornings, even by 8 am, so we weren't able to get breakfast items. The laundry room dryer was broken, and looked as...

We stayed at Lazy J this week and loved it! It was clean and well kept. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the chairs in front of our room to be able to sit and relax after a long day in Sequoia. Appreciated being able to get snacks/breakfast the evening before. If...

We've stayed at this hotel twice in the last few years. Both experiences were good although the upkeep of the rooms has declined somewhat over the years. The location is great with lots of open space. The grounds are well taken care of and the pool is wonderful. It s a very large property and doesn't give you the feel...

This was a great place to stay while visiting Sequoia National Park. It was minutes from the entrance and right at the edge of town. Quaint little cabins, extremely comfortable, and very nicely furnished. Goats and sheep out back to visit. Quiet, peaceful, a bit of heaven...
