The rooms were clean and quiet. It was 101 outside so we kept the air on all night. They offered prepackaged foods for breakfast (more than most these days). We swam in the pool and hot tub. My biggest beef was that the pool was full of bugs. We got out the net, and cleaned it ourselves so we could go in. Lots of tour buses come to this hotel, because it is nicer than most in the city.

No frills but adequate

The best thing this property has going for it is its proximity to Sequoia National Park, which is only a 12-minute drive. This along with the fact that there are few other hotels in town is reflected in the price. You have to make peace with the fact that you'll be paying top dollar for an extremely average hotel. The property is dated with rooms that could use a renovation. Our room was spacious and clean but had a couple of odd quirks - both the bed and the toilet were very low. The toilet led routinely would not stay up. The shower is the old style with a curtain (in these germ-conscious times, I wish hotels would get rid of showers with curtains altogether). Breakfast was designed to be grab and go due to COVID, although there were many people crowded in the lobby's dining area. The room had a microwave and fridge, so we were more than happy to eat there away from the crowd. The food selection was adequate - microwaveable breakfast sandwiches and vegetarian burritos, plus pre-wrapped muffins and yogurt. Staff were friendly and consistently wore masks. There were signs posted on the entrance to the hotel advising that masks were required in the lobby, but at any given time there were usually several guests who weren't wearing them. Housekeeping services were not provided due to the pandemic, which was fine with us, although I had to ask for more soap and shampoo from the front desk as not enough was provided for 2 people over a 3-day stay. One routinely annoying issue was that the exterior door around the back of the hotel did not work properly with our key cards. It was frustrating to return from a long day of hiking with our arms full of stuff and not be able to get into the building. We encountered numerous other guests who had experienced the same issue and we all helped each other get the door open. On two separate occasions, we had to go to the front desk because our key cards had stopped working. The issues might not seem like a big deal but when you're paying luxury hotel prices, it's irritating.

Better than expected

Traveling during covid times is challenging. We had never stayed at a Comfort Inn anywhere prior to this one but our experience made it likely we will try them again. As someone astutely pointed out, accommodation anywhere near Sequoia Park (let alone in the park) is difficult to come by. Three Rivers is only 6 miles from the park so the location is quite good considering. Maybe we were lucky but the room we had was quiet and comfortable on the far end of the 2 story building. Although there is no elevator and it can be a challenge hauling luggage up stairs, we prefer to have no one "walking on our heads". The staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. For Covid times, the "grab and go" breakfast offered more than usual compared to, say, Holiday Inn Express and Home 2 Suites: sausage and egg biscuits, yogurt, burritos, fresh fruit. Our room was clean and comfortable. There was an issue with a squealing toilet but it was promptly fixed.

Not many options here ...

Three Rivers is a tiny little town, which is the gateway to the Sequoia NP. There are not many options for accommodation and Comfort Inn seems to be the only franchise hotel here. High room rate stems from the limited availability not the quality of property. PROS: 1. Location is convenient - Only 10 min. driving to the park entrance. (Keep in mind that you still need to drive another 30 - 40 min. to get to the main attraction area) 2. Plenty of parking space 3. Good size of breakfast area - Yes, breakfast is provided. Due to COVID-19 restriction, there were not many food options (in July 2021) though. 4. Wi-Fi connection is better than average. 5. Quiet in the nighttime as long as your next-door guest is quiet. 6. Outdoor pool is available. CONS: 1. In-room furniture and air-conditioner are definitely out-dated. 2. Since the town is small, there is not many options for dining either. So, we brought our own foods. Although the hotel webpage states that room is equipped with microwave and mini refrigerator, there was no microwave. Also, the refrigerator was smaller than typical hotel-room ones. There are two microwave in the breakfast area that you can use. 3. There is no elevator. So, if you're bringing in lots of stuffs (typical for a family with little ones), you don't want to book a room on the second floor.

We had a quiet room on the 4th floor. Employees were very helpful. They offered tips and info for Sequoia NP and Kings Canyon. Breakfast buffet was delicious---just as nice as the pre-covid ones. Very nice and clean.
