We recently attended a wedding here and were very impressed. Although it is somewhat remote, about 30 miles east of Fresno, the grounds were well maintained, the facilities large enough, and the staff were terrific. Everything needed for a wedding seemed to be provided. Although guests are able to reserve overnight lodging on site, we chose to return to Fresno.... More

I recently traveled to Wonder Valley Resort from Southern California to attend a wedding for a close friend of mine. Being in the hotel business myself, I had some high expectations for the property. Upon arrival, I was immediately in awe at the beautiful grounds and the surrounding foothills. Its a very nice and peaceful setting. A great get-away from... More

We were on a tour and the Wonder Valley Ranch Resort was the place we were scheduled to stay before going to see the huge sequoias at Kings Canyon. This place is truly "wonderful". They treat you like royalty, have planned activities, great food, beautiful grounds, and the staff is super friendly and helpful. I can't wait to go back.

Was here for one night for a wedding and while reception at the front desk was great, the rest of the experience was sad. The hotel is just for weddings, there are no restaurants and no vending machines anywhere nearby.

I purchased the 2 $39 groupons which was for a hour trail ride for two. Due to the favorable response, i could not book a Saturday event for 4 people because they were booked, but they agreed to waive the expiration, that meant we missed the wildflowers blooming. The girl in the office was incredibly rude because I printed my... More

We stayed here for a night as we couldn't get any accommodation inside the King's Canyon park. It is about 45 mins drive from the park.
