My husband and I stayed at the Sequoia Motel in Three Rivers, CA to be close to Sequoia National Park. The location was perfect, only 4 miles from the park entrance. Our room was clean with fairly new renovations. Chris greeted us as we drove in and quickly got us registered. She was ready with restaurant suggestions and offered other local information. The description of the motel said limited water and limited internet. There was plenty of water. We didn’t need or miss the internet. I would recommend the Sequoia Motel especially if you don’t mind basic accommodations. It wasn’t fancy, but it was very adequate. The swimming pool was clean. We were told to be aware of the “meat bees” when eating outside. I had no idea what a meat bee was, but had a rude introduction to them when I was swarmed as soon as my roasted chicken arrived. The bees didn’t bother my husband’s food but wouldn’t leave mine alone. We had to move inside to finish our meal. All in all we had a fabulous time visiting the Giant Forest...at which I felt like a hobbit! Sequoia Motel is a great place to stay!

A little gem
We called late during a busy season to book and the place I called first was full but recommended this place. I'm not sure the curb appeal does it justice. The owners have done an outstanding job loving this place. The rooms are updated, clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The shower is very nice. The location is perfect. The grounds are lovingly cared for. I would definitely go back!!

Decent place to stay near Sequoia National Park
To drive from this Motel to Sequoia National Park Giant Forest Museum is about 1 hour. One of the closest unless you do camping.
The owners of this motel are very friendly. Place in general is clean but don’t expect too much if you are used to high end hotels in big cities.
Lighting in room is quite dim, but if you are just hiking in the park and sleep here, it probably doesn’t matter. There’s no study table. WiFi doesn’t exist in the room. You have to stand in front of the office to get decent signal.
Shower room is very small. If you are big and tall, you might have trouble with showering.
Outside the motel is a garden. See pictures. There’s a swimming pool but too cold to use. Maybe summer ok.
There are chairs and table outside each room, so you can sit outside and relax if you want. See pics. Plenty of parking space.
Entrance to motel is very tricky at a road curve. Be careful!
There’s a small fridge inside but no microwave.

A little behind the times
The Sequoia Motel is a throw back to the mid 20th century. It’s pleasant enough for what it is, a family run roadside motel close to the south entrance of Sequoia National Park. It has three major flaws. First there is no wi-fi in the rooms. Wi-fi is supposedly available outside the motel office. I mean literally OUTSIDE in the open air. We didn’t bother. Secondly the are no refrigerators in the rooms. That’s not so bad we always bring a cooler. But get this, there’s no ice machine! Ice packs are available at the office. We bought ice instead.
So yeah, the place was OK but it’s 2018 not the 1960’s.

We stayed at the Seqoai Motel in Three Rivers, a very friendly place a 30 min. ride from Sequoia Park, It's rustic yet perfect for the area, nice family restrauant near by with good food. A nice pool and sitting area outside, we enjoyed sitting there in the morning before the temp. went up.
