“Last minute reservation, Pat was wonderful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2010

Beautiful setting, our room was small but the bed very comfortable. The room had everything we needed. We were in room #10 which is next to the ice maker, which was noisy, but I am a very light sleeper so I would return, but would try to get away from the ice machine and probably one of the king rooms.

The hotel is exactly as pictured on the web site. Staff was very friendly and
greeted us immediately. The bed was just right firm. There is a wonderful pathway leading to the river from the back of the hotel. Nice and rustic.
Would recommend this to anyone wanting a quick luxurious get away.

Stayed here two nights and was very pleased. The lodge is right on the river, so you can walk down a few stairs and step right into the water. The rooms are very clean, have a kitchenette and all the amenities a kitchenette should have. There is Dish network cable and free internet. 5 minutes or so from rafting/hiking tours. Great place to stay!

Stayed 2 nights here with my 9 year old son for our annual Mother Son vacay with some whitewater rafting and fishing. The Sequoia Lodge is right on the Kern which was a perfect spot for fishing. However, the water is rushing there so I had a hell of a time untangling my line over and over and his (It would have probably been better fishing had I known what I was doing.) You can't really play or swim right there, because of the rushing water. But you can walk or drive a short distance to a nice area suitable for swimming. Across the street from the lodge is a general store with fishing supplies, fishing licenses, groceries and great food. Had a tritip sandwich for dinner and a breakfast burrito the next day for breakfast, Yum! We had a great time, I think I will come back next time on my motorcycle as you can park directly in front of your room. My son's favorite part of the hotel was the little, tiny baby frogs he found each night by the steps to go down to the river.

Our cousins own a nearby campground. My husband is disabled and unable to camp. We tried the Sequoia Lodge as a camping alternative. We were both very pleased with the cleanliness of the room. Not in the least bothered by insects. Air conditioning worked great. Compared to the stories of others in our party, who stayed in motels closer to Kernville, I would not stay anywhere else!

Stayed 3 lovely nights in great room #17. Very clean, Nicely redone. All rooms spick and span, very good beds (We had 2 queens). Microwave, frige and coffee maker. Fantastic River sounds all night. Just as we expected from web site, even better. Bring corkscrew and own wine glasses.. May be a bit hustly and bustly during high season, perfiect now in early spring.

We spent the weekend after Thanksgiving at the Sequoia Lodge. It was lovely. The lodge is a short walk up from a beautiful spot on the Kern River. Our little family was there to fly fish and we loved being right on the river. There is a patio that overlooks the river where you can enjoy your morning cup of coffee or even grill out on the grill provided. Our 7 year old son enjoyed playing there as we loaded the car. There are rooms listed as closer to the river, but only by a few more steps. Our room was #16 and when we go back we'll request that one again. Looking around, we figure you really couldn't go wrong with any of the rooms. Ours had a fridge, coffee maker (with REAL coffee mugs!) a microwave and sink and a little table that seats two, also a good sized t.v., two comfy queen beds and a bathroom with a shower stall. Everything was clean and cozy. There is also a general store right across the street where we bought a fishing license, sling shot & a cup of coffee. (the store was closing up after the weekend for their off season) The lodge owners were very friendly and personable. We thoroughly enjoyed it and are so glad we found this spot. We will definitely go again!
