Lazy J Ranch-Americas Best Value Inn
Ranked #2 of 6 Hotels in Three Rivers
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 February 2014

We were here for 2 nights and it was nice to be in a ranch style setting instead of a usual hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful with information about Sequoia National Park. The room itself was very clean and bed and pillow were comfy and the whole place felt homey. They provided breakfast and laundry services as well. Would stay here again.

My wife and I reserved a cabin (#4) for 3 days/2 nights for the MLK weekend in January 2014. We were very pleased with the property. It is "old school" but very well maintained and clean. Open spaces, secure. I am concerned about my convertible parked at night at most hotels but I had no worries here at all. We had a detached cottage with parking slot, fully stocked kitchen, table, full size fridge and mico-wave. We had a flat screen TV with DVD player and couch. Wi Fi worked well. Our cottage was to the back furthest from the road. Could not really hear traffic. Could just hear river in the back. They have larger cottages/cabins as well as individual rooms (Duplexes it looked like). We brought our own food and took advantage of the Weber barbecues available (with supplied charcoal and ignition chimneys- all at no charge) which can be wheeled to your unit. Great for cookouts! The two chairs and table just outside the front door in the "yard" for are perfect for taking in the view and air over a favorite beverage or coffee in the morning. Peaceful, relaxing, and quiet. Animal pastures behind. Very friendly owners live on property. Light breakfast (pastries, oatmeal, bagels etc) and DVDs for free use in the rooms are available. Very comfortable beds with down pillows. We did not have pets but heard they are okay.

Felt like we went back in time to the "good old" days. Open, comfortable, relaxing, and welcoming. Terrific value for the money. Definitely will return.

Great location for entrance to Sequoia National Park. Some good bakeries in town on the way. Lots of Europeans staying here on their motor tours.

Room Tip: Call for questions. We preferred cabins in back 1-6. Would pick #4 again.

The cottages and the staff were just what we needed after a long drive from SF. The location couldn't be better; close to both the Sequoia Nation Monument and Kings Canyon. The kitchen had all the cooking supplies we needed; including great cast iron pans! Full size fridge so we were able to shop in Visalia for the long weekend and not worry about shopping after a long day hiking. Staff is wonderfully friendly. Rooms are clean and well presented. I will be coming back!

Room Tip: Rent a cottage if you like to have the flexibility of cooking during your stay.

I am so glad I found this cute little charming inn! It's the first inn you will see in Three Rivers. We came here with my mom and dog for the Thanksgiving wkend to visit and hike in Sequoia.
We love their big landscape ranch style as you drive up. They have swings and tetherball for the kids/adults and a goat ranch in the back.
If we ever come back to visit Sequoia, this is a def stay.
The only bad thing is their thin paper towels! Bring your own towels!!!
Breakfast, you pick up at the check in counter. My mom enjoyed the oatmeal packet and fruits. My husband enjoyed their pastries and our dog enjoyed the bananas! =) These were a great touch for our hikes in Sequoia.
There is not much to do at night and not much restaurants either. We drove 45 min to the casino (Tachi Palace) each night for food and gambling.

If you're looking for high luxury the Lazy J probably will disappoint you. However, if you are a seeking clean economical, family operated motel, the Lazy J is excellent. We stayed here for 3 nights in July 13 and loved it. We normally prefer upscale but Lazy J was a great place. It's location allows for easy drives into the parks and 3 rivers but keeps you out of the crowds of the park facilities. We'll stay again if we revisit Sequoia, the pool was well kept and enjoyable. The rooms were clean, spacious and overall more than adequate.. The Lazy J is Throwback to the days of Family owned American roadside motels where families can enjoy themselves without overcharges and crowds.

During our 25-day across the country we stayed 2 nights at the Lazy J. I would say that it was the most restful, relaxing place we stayed. The setting is gorgeous, and the hosts very welcoming. We, also, visited in the off season and didn't get to enjoy all they had to offer, but would definitely return given the opportunity.

My husband and I stopped here for two days and loved it. The owners are very nice and friendly. There is a river/stream to walk to and fish. They have a pool, bbq's that you can use, horse shoes and tether ball. The room was nice and comfortable. Several restuarants in Three Rivers. Also there are several other places close by to fish at too. If you want a nice, quiet place to relax this would be it.
