My family and I stayed here after a day in the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks after coming down from Yosemite. Just south of the town of Three Rivers and just outside the parks southern entrance. Plenty of eating options in town. The room itself was fine - basic but clean. A pool, playground, and animals will keep the...

Used Lazy J as a base for exploring Sequoia National Park. It was a great stay with the rooms being clean and a good size. They had a gas fire which was nice during the cold night. Staff were very helpful with recommending dinner and providing a complimentary breakfast.

My family and I stayed here when visiting Sequoia and Kings Canyon. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The room was a perfect size and the bed were comfortable. Not as clean as I would have liked it as we had some large insects on our floor. It didn't bother me too much. They also have...

Three Rivers doesn't have a lot of places to stay and this was the first time for our family and a go-to if we're ever up that way again. The room was clean and quiet with ample parking for the moving truck my husband was driving. Three kittens frolicked nearby which was a plus! We'd certainly recommend the Lazy J!...

Stayed here for a weekend trip with 4 friends to visit the park, but what we didn't expect was staying at a cozy little camp! Mountains in the back, stream through a meadow, tetherball, and a pen full of goats--this place was a fantastic getaway from LA and the people at the desk were so nice (and their cats were...

Visited the area to visit Sequoia National Park and stayed at Lazy J Ranch for two nights. Owners and staff of the motel were extremely friendly and helpful detailing attractions and restaurants in area. Motel is not fancy and could use some updates but it was perfect for the occasion of hiking a national park. Appreciated the perfect hiking continental...

This inn not for everyone; if you are looking for bells and whistles you will be disappointed. What it does offer is a family who runs it like you are a welcomed guest. They were friendly and fun to chat with and told us about the area. There are sheep and goats on the property which we loved petting. The...

This motel reminds me of old fashioned Motor Court Motels from the 50's. You do not find many of these places as clean and neat as this one. The setting is great! We visited in January but a summer visit with small children would bring out best of this place. It has a swimming pool, volleyball court, horse shoe game,...

This was a fine place to stay for the night. We arrived super early and were allowed to check in early. The room was clean, it had what we needed and the cleaning staff were very happy. You can take your continental breakfast to your room if you're checking out before 9:30 am. Breakfast was granola bars, hot oatmeal, v8,...
