We picked this motel based on reviews and they were spot on. This is not a fancy motel. However, It is clean, friendly staff , and the location can not be beat. The is a beautiful river that runs along the back of the property. We headed into the the small town for coffee each morning and then off to Sequioa. Our stay was 2 nights.

Wonderful Stay at the Lazy J

This is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places we have ever stayed. It is set near the enormous lake and near all the citrus groves in the area. The lady who checked us in gave us lots of information about the area including restaurant and information about Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks which are just a 15-minute drive up the road. We had a little cottage which was attached to two others. There are also individual cottages which I suspect have kitchenettes. The pool is large, beautiful and inviting. The resort is beautifully landscaped and there are turkeys roaming about the place. There was a laundry room next to our room which had one washer and one dryer. The staff uses them during the day, so they are available when people return from the parks. There were two chairs on our front porch for relaxing and just listening to the birds. There is a play area for the little ones and a disconcerting sign warning of rattlesnakes in the area, just so you know. We had our two little dogs with us and were charged a minimal amount to have them in the room. When making the reservation I got the last room with two double beds. We slept well. There was a coffee maker, small fridge and microwave in the room and a large round table. The only thing we didn't care for was that there were two large living room type chairs around the table. We had to bring in take-out food so would have appreciated regular kitchen chairs so we could eat at the table. A little nook held the coffee maker and there was room for our laptop and a chair. We loved everything about the Lazy J Ranch. The area is incredible and the National Parks a real treasure. Book way ahead to insure you get a cottage at the Lazy J.

Out of our 7 day trip this was our favorite place that we stayed. Wished we could have stayed longer. The ranch is so cozy and welcoming! It has sheep and goats and a couple cats, plus turkeys that sleep in the trees! The River access was amazing and so fun to explore. We stayed in a room that has 2 full beds PLUS 2 twin beds just for our family of 4. If you’re going to explore the Sequoias I highly recommend this place to enjoy more nature.

We found the front desk staff to be very friendly and helpful. Turtle (the cat) is great. The location is near Sequoia National Park as well as a grocery store, coffee shop, and some restaurants. I appreciated the location and the price (for this area). They don't offer breakfast, but you don't have to drive far for it. I would highly recommend checking out Kaweah Coffee and the Village Market. We found the bed to be fairly uncomfortable. There was a space heater to heat the room, which wasn't ideal. I could get my wheelchair into the bathroom to get to the toilet, just barely. This might not work well for other wheelchair users. In fairness, the person I spoke with to make the reservation disclosed that the room is not fully accessible. There's a bathtub, which made me happy. All in all, I considered it a toss up. I would consider staying here again, but my partner would not.

Great location

Beautiful and convenient location near Sequoia NP. There are amazing views of mountains and lake (which was really a swollen river). The cottage and everything we needed including a kitchen. The only downside was the pool as green and full of algae.
