We are very happy with our experience. We stayed two nights at the cabin. It was very cozy. Cabin 1 has a separate living room space. Bedroom has amazing views & has plenty of closet/storage space. The kitchen is equipped with everything [plates, cups, forks, spoons, pots & pans]. AC & heater work great. We love that it's walking distance...

Two nights in our "cabin". Yes it was a little dated, but so comfortable. We collected our breakfast the previous evening and met the lady owner. She was lovely and showered us with oranges..lovely. We took advantage of a drive into the mountains which supported the Sequoia trees..another plus. If we were to improve the accommodation it would be to...

Our family has been coming to the Lazy J once or twice a year for almost 30 years. In fact, for several years we held Thanksgiving there, so beautiful and relaxing is the setting. We book one of the double rooms (1 queen in one room; two queens and a sofabed in the other) that are connected by a kitchen....

We stayed here after an early season winter storm disrupted our camping plans at Lodgepole. The rooms are pretty dated, but adequate. Fridge and microwave were helpful for traveling with kids and picnic supplies. The continental breakfast was not exciting, but not a huge deal. Out back of the hotel is river access, with a beautiful view of the foothills....

On our way from Barstow to Sequoia NP we had a stop in Three Rivers. We planned one night but made it 2 because of the Lazy J Ranch. Very comfortable attached cabins in a serene surrounding. There was a very nice little swimming pool were we spend almost an entire day just relaxing. A complimentary breakfast was served but...

I stopped here for a few days to see the Big Trees and do some hiking and found this gem of a motel. The people who own it take great pride in this place, it is clean,comfortable and reasonable priced. I enjoyed a few days in November and I am sure in warmer times the pool is delightful as are...

We had a great experience staying here for 1 night while seeing Sequoia Park. Checkin was very easy, and they gave great advise on how to spend a day and a half outside as well as a large selection of videos to watch in the room. The setting was perfect with beautiful scenery, river along the back and about 2...

I liked it. I think another review got it right: it's got a nice vibe. Sure, it's not the most modern but it was clean, functional and quiet. And a nice welcome from the owner. Three Rivers is not humming with excitement in out-of-season October and my eating experience was not fantastic but that's no fault of the Lazy J....

The not so good: It is a bit outdated, breakfast is poor and offered either after 9AM or in the evening before. We used the second option as we rose early for the park. The loundry machines were rusty. The good: Clean room, nice beds, clean property, nice swimming pool, great location and surroundings, Reception was okay, didn't help too...

No motel rooms available so proprietor offered a cottage at motel prices provided we didn't cook. The compendium was full to the brim of helpful interesting history and other information. It took a while to read all the articles provided. Rooms were well appointed, and the grounds exceptional, in an otherwise dry and burnt landscape. Breakfast was available at reception...
