Adorable, clean, quiet & comfortable rooms, several amenities and a great staff to boot. I'm out of town a lot for my job and don't usually leave reviews but this place is one that I'm happy to put my recommendation behind. Prices are reasonable, area is safe and beautiful view.

my daughter and i stayed here in sept. It was peaceful, comfortable, a/c was cold, the views were amazing. Sits right on the kern river. Hummingbirds on the patio was a plus for me. The location was outside of kernville............ just far enough. Definitely recommend. A fanastic end to a long family vacation

The room was large. Had a kitchen area. Shower worked. A/c was really noisy and was having trouble with the 100 degree temps, but the room was not hot, just not super cold. If you don't mind driving to dinner, this is a good place.

Nice clean room. Cute fishing theme decor. Friendly helpful staff!! Great location above the river. Very close to check in point for River rafting. Air conditioner worked great!! Only negative was the too soft beds as I prefer a firm mattress.

The room had a great comfortable bed with nice soft linens. The kitchen area has a microwave, mini fridge and a small sink to wash dishes. The lodge provides plates, cups, glasses,...

I definitely recommend this place. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the area all around is very clean and free of litter. It's very easy to see that the owners/managers run a first class place here. In-room wifi is strong. The hotel backs up directly onto the Kern River and there are several nice, clean spots to sit and have a...

I was here assigned to a fire. When there is a fire near Kernville, there are few rooms as the firefighter, helicopter crews, and tourist are competing for a limited number of rooms. Often you take what you can get, and some hotels and resorts are better than others. Sequoia Lodge is great, it is nicer than several others we...
