Booked this based on the high Tripadvisor ranking. Didn't get the high ranking at all, ranked as the worst hotel of our 3 week trip. The location and set-up of the place is nice with buildings around a central place. The negative is that the hotel has not had any updates in possibly the last 25 years. It looks and...

The Lazy J is the exact type of hotel you'd expect to see in a tiny town just outside a national park. It's quaint, no-frills approach to lodging was the perfect compliment to a couple days of hanging out with the sequoias. The room was clean and comfortable, and the orientation of small buildings lent a cozy quality to the...

Cute and quaint. Clean and well taken care of, just not updated. Family/owners were very friendly and accommodating. Swimming pool looked nice although we didn't use it. Breakfast was kinda silly and they don't open the office until 9am, so if you want it before then, they tell you to grab it the night before. There was a couple fruit...

So reminiscent of days gone by. Lovely setting in a horseshoe configuration around a large swimming pool with open grassed area for children to play. There is also a children's play area and outdoor games to play. Short stroll to a lovely river too. The rooms are clean and spacious and get this, they have mouthwash, shower caps and make...

Our first night on the way to Sequoia National park. I was really happy to have booked this place.A very cozy, clean and dogfriendly place. A quiet place with a nice garden area. Breakfast was ok, Wifi was good when you head into Sequoia it is gone! Staff was helpful we arrived a bit early.

I pre-booked this motel for a one night stopover from Yosemite to Los Angeles and it was perfectly placed to enable us to drive through the Sequoia National Park and have an evening's rest before travelling on the next day. We arrived in the dark to a friendly lady in reception who checked us in very easily, explaining that breakfast...

We loved staying for a night in this charming and friendly family run motel. In fact, we liked it so much we looked for a second night but of course it was fully booked - not surprising given the great value for money this place offers. The setting is beautiful, nice pool, very friendly staff, decent continental style breakfast and...

The rooms were perfectly adequate for an overnight stop. We didn't manage to get breakfast as the office was closed when we returned from our day out and we left too early the next morning. We slept well though and would recommend the pizza factory for good pizza nearby!

The Lazy J is really a slice of Americana. You don't find many places like this anymore. Nothing glitzy, nothing trendy about it. (I should note, though, that the flat screens are brand new and dependable wifi and a good breakfast buffet are free.) Obviously, the Lazy J has been around for a long time, and has been lovingly preserved....

We spend one night at Lazy J's after a long day in Sequoia National Park. We enjoyed the refreshing swimming pool and the comfortable atmosphere of a typical American Motel mixed with a small sheep farm. The river is in walking distance and invites for a swim. The rooms were very clean, spatious. WLAN was provided (kids!). For breakfast we...
