Travel Blogs from Three Rivers
Ridgecrest to Three Rivers sees a short drive in comparison to yesterday with a mere 180 miles to be covered. We leisurely wake up and have breakfast only to discover the US is potentially going into shutdown in 12 hours time which for us means no national parks will open. Seeing as we are headed to do a week around the national parks this could be …
We drove into sequoia national park on very winding roads, but luckily only a short distance! Unfortunately there were roadworks, so they only opened the road once, on the hour, for people to get into and then out of the park. We watched an interesting film about black bears in the visitor's centre, but didn't see any real ones. I watched a film …
We visited Lone Pine where they filmed a lot of famous cowboy films (including The Lone Ranger). I could see why as it's an amazing backdrop, with the highest mountain in the US in the background and amazing rock formations. Dominic and Monty made their own mini cowboy film! While I was walking between the silent rocks I was thinking of the film ' …
After a much needed oil change for the car we headed south on highway 1 or the Cabrillo Highway or The Pacific Coast Highway depending on the source. There may be no other road in this world that is so exhilarating to drive. Soon after the Monterrey Bay the highway hugged the Pacific with drops of hundreds of feet into the blue water with white …
Death Valley to Three Rivers
Late last night after a very slow upload, we were on the way back to the room and the moon was spectacular – the amateur photography was not so good but we try. Sometime yesterday we also crossed into California but in was so desolate they didn't even bother with a state line 'welcome …

Excellent Value for Money
Out of all of the hotels we stayed in during our three weeks travel in the west of USA this has to be the best value for money and was probably the cleanest and most comfortable. Coffee and tea making facilities are available in the rooms. The staff were extremely accommodating especially the young lady who ran around like a headless chicken serving up the breakfast which was excellent. The hotel is in an excellent location for exploring the Sequoia's. Would certainly recommend it.
Great Price for Excellent Quality
When we pulled up to this Holiday Inn, I was amazed at how great it looked. It was clean, the staff was friendly, and there was every amenity we needed, even a packet of shoe shine. The hot tub was very warm, and the pool large, but cold at the end of October. :) The hotel looked as if it was brand new, with soft carpet, nice beds, and a large TV. The shower head was amazing, with different settings for your comfort. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to the Sequoias or staying in the Three Rivers area.
Good but a bit noisy
Nice and clean room. Good free breakfast. Unfortunately the noise from the hallway as other guest walked by (talking loudly) kept us awake early in the morning even though I usually sleep through earthquakes and thunderstorms! One morning the whole area had blackout for at least a couple of hours and we couldn't use the shower or bathroom. Overall, it was a good deal and the staff was helpful, but if we ever go there again, we might try a more expensive room on the second floor, far from the breakfast area and the pool.
Very nice place to stay
We stayed 3 days at this Holiday Inn. The rooms have very large, clean and well furnished. The hotel is very quiet, offer a Deluxe Complementary Breakfast that guests can eat in the swimming pool area. The personel is very pleasant and helpful.
It is idealy placed 3 miles from the entrance of the park.
A very good value !
Staying there, I DO NOT recommand to go at the GATEWAY Restaurant for dinning. Food is poor and service doesn't exist.
I wish I could keep this place a secret to myself - we stayed three nights (family of five to a room - children aged 13, 10 & 8). Room was more than adequate, pool was great, complimentary breakfast was a treat (eat it in your room, by the pool or on the lawn). As other reviewers have mentioned, just across the road was a great little supermarket with all necessary provisions, a pizza place and a mexican restaurant plus a few other shops (and then not another shop or building in sight). Add that to the fact that it's a few mile from the wonderful Sequia and Kings Canyon and who could ask for more - wish we had had the time to spend at least a week here. If I am ever in this region again I would stay here again - that's my view, my wife's view and the children's opinion. We were very, very sad to leave even though we were heading for the delights of Yosemite (by the way King's Canyon and Sequoia are better than Yoesmite if you prefer less crowds)
Three Rivers, CA is hardly a town. It happens to be a concentration of buildings between Visalia and the entrance to Giant Sequoia NP. The HIExpress however, was a nice hotel, for where we were, and provided a good place to rest and relax before venturing in the NP. The location was great since the journey through Giant Sequoia NP was a very intense day of driving. Adding the extra drive from Visalia would have only made it worse. There is a nice market across the street with prices that riveled those of my neighborhood mega store. They could have raked you over the coals since they are the only place in town. There is also a pizza place and a Mexican rest. across the street. Free breakfast was a good way to start the day. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to go to Giant Sequoia NP. Only book one night though, because to see the NP right you enter at one location and through another.
A superb base for Kings Canyon and Sequoia Park. Very clean,well equipped, large rooms with standard motel bathroom. Breakfast was good, except when motel was at full capacity when the replenishment failed slightly (was I really worried?) there was still fresh fruit, coffee and pastries. The overall impression is the staff are trying very hard to give very good value for money - which they do.
Reasonable pool and hot tub, but superb views when you're using them!
Big rooms, very clean.
One of the best Holiday Inn's we've seen. Big clean rooms, no signs of wear and tear. Friendly and efficient staff. We checked in to our room early with no problems.
Breakfast buffet was excellent. Buffet was resupplied and cleaned constantly. Would definitely stay here again.
Stayed here 2nd June 2004. Excellent hotel, cheap at $60 for a good sized 2 double beds room. Very clean, good breakfast, nice but smallish pool. Recommend this place over the Best Western.
Don't eat at the nearby Pizza Factory! It's cheap but dirty, slow, only got half our order, poor quality food.
Great place to stay. We're a family of four - two adults, two 12 yr. olds. We were placed in a room adjacent to some partying construction workers. Upon request, we were relocated. Phew! The breakfast was very nice with plenty of room to sit and enjoy. Seems to be a kid oriented facility with games and internet in the lobby.We'll stay again.
