I have never stayed in a more disgusting place than the McCambridge lodge. The railings that blocked the drop off down a steep cliff were broken. Broken down cars in the parking lot. Stained and broken down mattresses and box springs. Stained and burnt carpeting. Stained furniture. Spiders and webs behind bed. A spoon was dropped between stove and cabinet, was mopped around so many times it has a black outline of spoon. This establishment allows dogs but none of the dogs were leashed and the dogs growled, barked at and tried attacking our small children. Just overall disrepair and don't forget the roaches!! I have pics of it all. Run, don't walk away from this place.

I would have rated this a 4, but I was unable to stay in the room during the day because the AC was unable to cool the room to a reasonably comfortable temperature. Otherwise, the room was adequate and a good value. The people working there are extremely nice.

We reserved the hotel the same day I arrived at the Kern Valley for one night. The hotel is well situated, right at the skirts of a tiny town of Kernville. I got a room overlooking the lake, quite a nice view from the window. The room has two queen beds with cheap but firm and comfortable mattresses, which is a big plus on my opinion, so we could take a really good rest. The hotel seems to be rather old and not well maintained, but the room and carpet were clean aside from couple of permanent stains which didn't bother as. Also the room has all amenities we needed, even a small range and a fridge. Considering the cheap price for the room compared to the other nearby hotels, this hotel has a great value for budget travelers. By the way, the manager is a very nice and accommodating person.

We stayed in various standards and prices of accommodation during a 4-week tour of California.

We really liked this place. Yes, outside the McCambridge is tired and in need of a lick of paint, and Yes, the staff aren't dressed up like the front desk at The Best Western, but everyone is very friendly, the room was clean and comfortable, and few places good beat the view when enjoying a drink in the little pagoda at the back overlooking the Kern River valley.
