"A very pleasant stay"

5
16/07/2018

We stayed at the Best Western in Exeter for a weekend since we were attending a wedding nearby. The room was clean and very pleasant with a nice sitting area and a good tv. The air conditioning worked well and pool was small but incredibly enjoyable -- and made the valley heat tolerable. Staff were very helpful -- and breakfast was a good one. I'd definitely recommend it. It seemed a little pricey for the area -- but the room also was considerably nicer than the other motels of other brands that I've stayed at in the area. (Great water pressure, good hot water, comfy bed, lots of space.) It's not far from Sequia/

"Clean & convenient"

01/07/2018

Decent clean room. The AC was incredibly loud at night. They need real pillows not just weird square sacks - so sleeping wasn't great. Breakfast was okay - eggs, sausage, waffles, yogurt, pastries - the usual. Convenient location to Sequoia.

00gc, General Manager at Best Western Exeter Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Jenn, thank you for sharing your review with us. Although our location was convenient for your needs, we are sorry for the noise issue you had and also regret that you found the pillow to be uncomfortable. We have shared your concern in regards to your room with our maintenance team to be more diligent in their service moving forward. We hope your otherwise positive experience will bring you and your family back to us. General Manager Best Western Exeter Inn & Suites

"Water issues "

3
01/07/2018

It is a clean hotel. The hotel check in did NOT inform us that there was a water contamination in the city and that ALL water needed to be boiled before using. So I had already brushed my teeth and used the ice from the ice machine before we found out. We found out because we were hungry and decided to go find dinner. That's weird! Everything is closed? We saw a sign on a door. ALL restaurants closed because of water contamination. Ok? The next closest town with good food is 25 minutes away and we have starving kids that had wanted to eat and swim. This was 8:00 pm. Next subject: you can hear EVERYTHING! I mean EVERYTHING from the other rooms. Phone alarms, conversations perfectly. Lots of fighting going on between husbands and wives. The wives kept screaming at their husbands! I hope I don't do that.

00gc, General Manager at Best Western Exeter Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for being our guest. We are sincerely sorry for the service and noise issue you encountered which inconvenienced your stay.

27/05/2018

Real nice place. I wish you the same luck as I had when I arrived. Got room on end. Parked directly in front of room door. Room spacious, with fridge, microwave, iron/board, hair dryer, king bed. A relatively quiet area/ no businesses nearby. Wifi worked great. Big screen TV with a clear picture and many channels.

"One night stopover"

5
26/05/2018

We stopped here for just one night. Great hotel. We were checked-in in only a couple of minutes. Our room was one of the nicest I've stayed in. It had a huge bed and a separate seating area. WiFi was quick, good channels on the TV, spacious bathroom, and the breakfast was very good. We walked into town where there are plenty of bars and restaurants and it only took about 15 mins. I highly recommend this hotel. It's in an ideal location for visiting Sequoia National Forest.

00gc, General Manager at Best Western Exeter Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for sharing your review of Best Western Exeter Inn & Suites. It's always our attempt to provide a comfortable stay for each guest, and we are glad to see we accomplished this while you were here.

"Great stopping point after Sequoia"

5
05/05/2018

We stayed her after visiting Sequoia National Park before heading to the coast. It was a great hotel, the staff were friendly. The room clean and spacious. We were able to rest after a long day on the road. Breakfast was a typical hotel breakfast but there were plenty of choices and the food was fresh and the staff was very consciousnesses about refilling everything. I would recommend staying here if you happened to be passing through.

00gc, General Manager at Best Western Exeter Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Thank you for the terrific review. We are delighted your stay was perfect in every way. Our team works hard to meet your expectations, so it is nice to see your feedback.

"Good Stay"

05/05/2018

Clean and quiet spot to rest your head. Friendly staff. Nice alternative than a hotel on Highway 99. Breakfast O.K. Traditional american meal. Waffles, eggs, muffins, biscuits, sausage, coffee, sugar cereals.

04/05/2018

Only stayed one night, but found this to be a great motel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Gave us great advice about restaurants and sites to see in the area. The rooms were excellent. Wifi worked well and the breakfast was very good.

"Nicest Place to Stay in Exeter"

5
15/02/2018

Came with my bike club for a weekend of riding in the area and stayed here. The rooms were nice with comfy beds and a clean bathroom. The staff worked with our group and allowed us an early check-in so we could get ready for an afternoon ride upon arriving. The wi-fi worked well in our room and had good reception with my Verizon phone. The make your own breakfast in the morning was really nice with a make your own waffle maker, some scrambled eggs already prepared, cereals, pastries, juices, coffee and milk. Exeter is a very small town with only a few restaurants and places to stay. This was probably the nicest place to stay in town and on the gateway to Sequoia National Park.

00gc, General Manager at Best Western Exeter Inn & Suites, responded to this review
Perry, thank you for your wonderful review of Best Western Exeter Inn & Suites. We are delighted to know you liked your room and the outstanding hospitality provided by our associates. It was a pleasure hosting you all, and we look forward to welcoming you again in the near future. Neil Patel General Manager

"I would definitely recommend this hotel!"

5
01/01/2018

Excellent! I would definitely recommend this hotel! Clean, quiet, nicely decorated, A/C and heater worked perfectly, convenient location (it's around 35 minutes away from the Sequoia-Kings Parks), friendly staff, free parking, and they had warm breakfast.

"Best Western - Exeter"

4
07/12/2017

Rooms are clean, comfortable, and quiet. Staff is pleasant and helpful. Breakfast is good with several options. Close to Exeter, Visalia, Porterville, and Lindsay. It's a bit of a drive to the interesting part of Sequoia National Park.

"PRICIER THAN DESERVED"

3
28/11/2017

Most expensive hotel I stayed in over a seven day period. Amenities did not match the price. Main hotel sign did not come on until well after dark due to auto turn on feature set to daylight saving time. Made finding the hotel a bit pos a challenge. TV remote is too basic to be useful and TV was set up in French.

"Great Location for a National Park Trip"

5
24/10/2017

CA Highway 198 is a great east-west route if you want to drive from Sequoia National Park to Pinnacles National Park. Turn north on Highway 25 to Pinnacles. BW is always a good value. We like the cleanliness, efficiency, the satisfying breakfast at the BW locations. Staff was friendly and helpful, too.

"EWC"

5
23/10/2017

This is my favorite place to stay when I come into town for an event I participate in showcasing products from The Cocoa Exchange at the Exeter Woman's Club 'Christmas in October'. At Best Western, Vanessa... what a wonderful and lovely person. She remembered me from my visit last year. The entire staff is amazing and the hotel is always clean and comfortable. The T.V. remote quit working and was immediately replaced with another one. They always are working to make sure guests are taken care of.

"Review of a three night stay in Exeter"

5
19/10/2017

In the past I have stayed at over 40 Best Western properties and this one has to rank in the top five. Everything about the hotel far exceeding my expectations: nice and quiet location, clean and spacious rooms, very competent and friendly staff, close to the national parks, and great wifi. In a heart beat, I would recommend this property.

"Excellent Choice when staying in Exeter"

5
18/10/2017

This is a very clean facility and the rooms are modern and updated. The breakfast is very nicely presented and the food choices are good. The pool and hot tub are very clean. I recommend this hotel when traveling to this area. We had a very nice stay at this hotel.

"Clean, Organized, and Great Location"

5
12/10/2017

Room was much bigger than expected, new convenient coffee maker, and very comfortable furnishings / bed. Breakfast was well furnished, area cleaned, and with good selection. Late night check-in was flawless and friendly.

"Great Find!"

5
09/10/2017

Best Western Exeter was a great find! The room was very clean and decorated well. The beds were super comfy. The room had a microwave and fridge. The breakfast was very good with waffles, eggs, sausage and biscuits and the regular breakfast extras. The hotel is an easy 40 minutes ride from the Sequoia National Park gate. I would definitely stay again if I am in the area.

"Well appoint d comfort"

5
06/10/2017

Couldn't wish for a more comfortable hotel. The room was clean and well equipped. Reception staff were helpful on arrival and - this is a good test - even more helpful at 4 a.m. When we departed ! The hotel is ideally situated for the best of Visalia. It's a no risk choice

"Excellent hotel"

5
04/10/2017

We stayed at this hotel for 2 days in October and it could not have been better. The rooms are extra clean, roomy,, in great working order. The staff was excellent and very helpful. The front desk clerk, when we checked in went out of his way to help us . I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Exeter

"Best Western = Great Value"

5
29/09/2017

The hotel was clean and the staff very helpful. Even though I was late for breakfast, they still allowed me to grab a pastry for my nephew. This is a great value for the money. I would definitely return.

"A great relaxing hotel"

5
25/09/2017

We arrived late at night, and the front desk was very accommodating- getting us checked in very quickly. New hotel. Bed was very comfy. Very quiet. Top hotel, and we will stay here again. Thanks for the great sleep!

"Convenient and Clean"

4
22/09/2017

We drove from Lake Tahoe through both King's Canyon and Sequoia and I was more than ready for a good nights sleep in a clean hotel. This hotel was just outside Sequoia and convenient. It was very clean and well decorated. The breakfast was tasty. Would stay there again if in the area.

"Rest between Parks"

5
21/09/2017

The Exeter Best Western Inn & Suites was the perfect location between both National Parks. Day 1 my husband and I toured Sequoia National Park and day 2 did Kings Canyon. Plenty of restaurants nearby to grab dinner in the evenings. Comfy beds at night to recharge for the next day!

"Room doors and swimming pool outside by the cars, everything else appears nice and new"

5
15/09/2017

I could not find any lodging of any kind in Porterville, near the main road, Hwy 99. I looked for a while. This town is about 10 miles north on that same highway. The orange trees are so beautiful for miles and miles. Sequoia trees are east, in the mountains.

"Excellent Adventure"

4
13/09/2017

We stayed in Exeter when we couldn't find lodging closer to Sequoia National Park. Excellent hotel with everything we needed while traveling to multiple National Parks. Traditional breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal, yogurt, fruit, coffee and juice. Washer & Dryer available.

"National park event"

5
07/09/2017

Returned to this hotel for the third time during our trip to the national parks. Each stay was positive in that we were treated with courteous staff, the room was great, bed comfortable, workout room adequate, breakfast everything one would want, and pickup and delivery to and from the airport was quick and uneventful.

"Best Place to Stay when visiting Sequoia N.P."

5
04/09/2017

This was absolutely the best Best Western we have ever stayed in. Rooms were large and clean. Bed was very comfortable. The staff eager to serve and help. If you are staying outside Sequoia N.P. , this is the best place to stay.

"My Best Favorite BW!"

5
28/08/2017

This was a return visit & I was over pleased all over again! My trip to Exeter was a place to stay while visiting Sequoia National Park, which is about 50 miles northeast. The 2 queen-bed room was comfortable, quiet, clean, well maintained, parking was easy to locate near the room, staff was cheerful & helpful, check-in was quick as was check-out. I will be back again.

"A really good find!"

5
16/08/2017

We stayed one night here on the way to Sequoia. Really recommend it. Friendly front of house staff. Large, clean, well air conditioned rooms. A small gym which we used (and a very small pool which we didn't). Just on the outskirts of a lovely quaint little town. Breakfast included and included a rapid lesson on waffle making! A great stop-off. Well recommended.

"Great hotel for Sequoia and Kings Canyon visits"

5
10/08/2017

Best Western Exeter Inn and Suites was surprisingly good -- very clean and well-maintained. The pool and hot tub were terrific after long days of hiking. One negative: an in-room safe would have been appreciated.

"Honest Traveller"

5
08/08/2017

Great value for money. Large clean and comfortable rooms. Great breakfast. Visited Sequoia which is about 30miles away. Swimming pool great too. Pizza Factory restaurant nearby well worth a visit. If you are looking for somewhere to stay near this national park would thoroughly recommend this.

"On way to Sequoia"

4
08/08/2017

This very nice motel is located about 40 minutes drive from the South entrance to the grand sequoia park where the giant trees live. It feels like being at a lonely god-forsaken place, but there is a little town Exeter nearby, where a few restaurants and a petrol station can take care of you and your car. Rooms are pretty large, service is smilingly, and the breakfast is varied and worth it. -price wise, it is a good value for money.

"What a treat to stay here"

5
04/08/2017

We arrived late after a long day in the car and couldn't have been happier to see the hotel and our room. The room was clean, very large and so comfortable. The next day breakfast was so nice to have more than coffee and yogurt! If we are ever in the area again we would not hesitate to stay here. We actually considered if we could base our sightseeing from here, but just didn't work this time.

"Comfortable and Clean"

5
27/07/2017

Guest rooms are spacious and clean. The property is very quiet at night. The staff is fantastic. The entire hotel was recently renovated and it is very comfortable. Breakfast has a lot of options - even some that are healthy.

"1500"

25/07/2017

Clean, room was nice, service for t front desk clerk was nice and helpful. The hotel facility was a lot nicer than expected especially being quite a distance from bigger cities. We would stay there again if we need a room in the area

"A complete gem in the BW chain"

5
24/07/2017

I stay at this BW property several days each month. Over the years, it shines as the best BW property I have stayed at. It is exceptionally clean, offers a very reasonable breakfast and has trained caring staff. It is very difficult to keep a hotel property running well and consistently. I totally respect these owners for doing such a great job. I stay at a lot of BW properties and this one never disappoints (some others do!). They have limited space for the fitness equipment here, so that is marginal, but I do use it every time I stay here. Frankly, they should have the BW "Plus" designation. I have stayed at BW Plus properties that are not nearly as nice or well run as this one. It is a great stopping point on your way to Sequoia National Park and the quaint town of Exeter is like Mayberry. It is famous for its murals throughout the town and the many antique and collectible shops. It is worth a walk around town, even if you are just on the way to the Sierras. I cannot imagine you not being pleasantly surprised by this BW property.

"A very pleasant surprise"

4
21/07/2017

We really were pleasantly surprised by this new small hotel. It was clean, neat and the morning breakfast was excellent. The check-in person could be the President of the Chamber of Commerce. She is so welcoming and helpful Exeter is a small community. Had a wonderful downtown town and nice little restaurants which were totally unexpected. Don't miss the murals in the downtown area which depicted the history of the area. Sorry Best Western but your very nice little hotel was edged out by the murals.l

"Great value"

5
13/07/2017

Excellent value. Stayed there on a trip to Sequoia. Easy drive (1hr) to the park. Reasonably fast internet, password changed daily. Good breakfast witha selection of hot items, pastries, fruit, cereal and yoghurt

"Best of the Best Westerns"

5
06/07/2017

A "sisters trip" from L.A. to Sequoia and Yosemite then onto Cambria and Santa Barbara. We stayed at a couple of VRBO homes, a small boutique hotel, a couple of big name brand resort hotels, but this Best Western really was a wonderful find! We got rooms next to each other. It was new, very clean, quiet and a very relaxing place to stay. If I ever pass through this way again, I will definitely stay here. Close to the very cute town of Three Rivers and on our way to Sequoia. And Ben Salazar was a funny and kind person to greet us upon arriving. Great Stop!

"Great Hotel"

5
05/07/2017

This hotel is great! We were looking for a hotel kind-of close to the Sequioa's, without paying an arm and a leg. This hotel fit the bill. It was reasonably priced and a good location. Plus, the breakfast was a good selection and the staff were friendly.

"Quiet, comfortable rooms"

5
30/06/2017

We were very happy with our 2 night stay here- I am a light sleeper and no banging hotel doors all night. Beds were comfortable and clean, and it was nice to have the small refrigerator and microwave too. Kids liked the pool! Would definitely stay here again.

"Nice surprise"

4
25/06/2017

We stayed at this hotel for two nights only, as a gateway to Sequoia National Park. Exeter is sleepy but charming, and the hotel is modern, clean and well equipped. There is a small pool, and a basic but perfectly reasonable breakfast was included.

"Great place to stay"

4
14/06/2017

This is a pretty new hotel. Very nice. The rooms were big and very clean. We were greeting by a guy I laughingly referred to as Mr Personality because he had none. We arrived around 8 pm. I tried to let him know the next evening how wonderful the breakfast was and what a good job the lady who was keeping the breakfast area clean and stocked did. He acted like I was inconveniencing him by telling him that. Anyway, the breakfast area had a great selection including a waffle machine. We had no complaints and I highly recommend this hotel.

"Excellent"

5
31/05/2017

Stayed here for one nightafter a day at Sequioa Nationa Park and it was the best nights sleep we had in the last week. 2 queen Beds very comfortable, room clean and spacious ,shower good, breakfast ok, staff very pleasant and helpful.

"Newer inn. Great experience."

5
28/05/2017

After looking at many options near Sequoia National Park and looking at reviews, I am happy we chose this inn. Very comfortable. Quiet, for a motel. Only could slightly hear nearby rooms. Looks new. I hope it can stay as nice. Priced well for location. Breakfast is typical of a good Best Western. Easy morning drive to Sequoia.

"Excellent location for visiting Sequoia National Park"

5
23/05/2017

Loved our visit here, super friendly staff, immaculately clean from front desk to entire room. Super spacious room with two king size beds, pillows super comfy, hot shower, awesome (and needed) air conditioning, microwave, and refrigerator. Free wifi, excellent TV. Huge breakfast selection, we wish all motels were as nice as this one.

"Gem near Sequoia NP"

5
14/05/2017

Excellent room and staff. I would recommend as a quiet alternative to nearby cities. Full breakfast included in the rate but I still think it was too high for the location. That may be why others have chosen the nearby hotels.

"A Stopping Point Along the Way"

3
11/05/2017

Heading to Sequoia National Park about 4 hours outside of LA with my wife and father-in-law. My wife booked this motel as a stop before heading out to Sequoia in the morning. At first glance, the hotel offers a pleasant appearance as a stopping point along the way. The rooms seem adequate, clean and comfortable. Although they claim to be full, it appears as if no one else is staying here. The motel is often used by truckers who work the beautiful and scenic Orange groves along the way. I checked into the local scene, and except for an old, small town bar, there's not much to do around here. There's a small pool and jacuzzi that I intend to try, and I guess the next step will to "chillax".

"Great stay."

5
03/05/2017

Nice hotel, stayed here one night. Big room, good bed, clean. Breakfast standard, not very special. Parking in front of the room, motel. Friendly and helpful staff, would certainly stay here again. Recommendable.

"Better than expected"

5
29/04/2017

We always prefer Best Western but thought such a relatively small hotel in such an out-of-the-way place would not be as good as usual. To our surprise, the rooms were even more generously sized than usual and everything worked perfectly. We particularly liked the extra-large room fridge. As always, the beds were super-comfortable and the room-darkening curtains were adequate to ensure an excellent night's sleep. The breakfast was as complete and tasty as we have found anywhere. Too bad we probably will not be here again, as we would be happy to repeat the stay.

"Great stay"

5
19/04/2017

Staff was friendly and helpful. My room was always clean and fresh. I stayed for 5 days with my two kids and we were comfortable. I really like that a computer was available for guest to use Internet and printing.

"Always Enjoyable"

5
16/04/2017

This was our third stay here, it is always clean, the staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great, except for the scrambled eggs. The town is very interesting. We always enjoy our stay here. We plan on going back next April. If you visit Exeter, be sure to check out the murals around town.

"Did Someone say Sausage Gravy?"

5
15/04/2017

This is hands down the best hotel in Exeter, CA. The room was clean and new. The hot water was super hot. I'm not kidding here. My wife said she could boil eggs with the water. The water pressure was a bit low but the hot water made up for it. The coffee maker was an off brand keurig and it sort of worked half the time. We really didn't need the coffee since in the morning we had an ample amount at the free breakfast. Which leads me to the best part of my trip to Sequoia--the sausage gravy, biscuits, sausages, eggs, orange juice, etc. I think I plan these trips for my family just so I can eat these free breakfasts.

"Great Hotel Near Sequoia National Park"

11/04/2017

I booked this for a family spring break road trip as one of our legs, stopping at Sequoia National Park. Exeter is a more affordable location, and I'm so glad we stayed here. Although it's approximately 45 minutes from the national park, it is still a perfect accommodation option (I'd do it again!). I passed the other accommodation options that were closer, and they were not nearly as new/nice. We had 2 rooms at Best Western Exeter (my family of 4, and traveling with grandma), and both rooms were very clean and seemed newly decorated. Surprisingly nice (we've stayed at many Best Westerns, and have seen all types)! The unexpected highlight, traveling in early April, was the incredible scent of orange blossoms coming from the next door orchard. OMG the entire town of Exeter smells of this fragrance! What a treat. Visit in spring if you are lucky enough. Downtown Exeter is tiny but cute, and the main drag has many art murals around, and some cute mom & pop shops and restaurants (& the best donut shop with the biggest apple fritter you've ever seen!). Back to the hotel - the kids had fun in the jacuzzi & cold pool, both were clean. The breakfast was great - started us off with full bellies. Would happily stay here again if ever vising the INCREDIBLE Sequoia National Park & General Sherman Tree. The drive from the hotel into the park passes many great sights along the way, as well - stop wherever you see something cool, there are many worthwhile adventures to be had! Until next time... :-)

"Small town but Great BW Hotel"

5
08/04/2017

New hotel with BW decor and quality. The room was a king size bed suite (see my photo). The bed was comfortable, room was clean with more than adequate towels. The coffee machine is an individual Keurig. The breakfast was near the lobby with a good selection of foods, tables to sit, & TV mounted high. The staff woman in the morning assisted me with finding the type tea bag I wanted - big selection of tea. At check-out she also helped me with a highlighted map to get me started to my next destination. Evening staff directed me to a good place to eat (food was great, btw)! I have already recommended this BW to family & friends. I will stay here again. Located not far from Sequoia National Park entrance; less than 2 hours drive.

"Nice hotle in relatively small town"

5
24/03/2017

The room was clean and comfortable. The shower was nice. We had a small problem with the frig/freezer in the room, but it turned out that it had been unplugged - an easy fix. The hot breakfast was good, and the breakfast room was roomy. The front desk staff were all nice, friendly and efficient. We had a few questions about dining in the area, since Exeter is a relatively small city, and they answered them well.

"conference"

23/03/2017

my wife and I really enjoy our stay, the room was clean and fresh. I liked the idea that they actually had real coffee cups instead of paper, if made the room seem more homey. The breakfast was much better than the ones with just waffles and pastry's, My wife is diabetic so was nice.

"High quality BW"

Located in Exeter, a town we had only a vague image of. The hotel is relatively new, and though on hwy 65 it's quiet in the room. Second floor was a good location. However with no elevator carrying luggage up may be a hindrance. The town has a very vibrant and quaint downtown area.

Clean room and comfy bed. Good place to stay overnight if you are visiting Sequoia and King's Canyon National Park. Free breakfast the next day is find for a quick, cheap cup of coffee. Good assortment of cereals, juices, breads and yoghurt. Almond milk was also available too which was unexpected but great.

"Great for a one night stay"

Excellent hotel, a little out of town, but an easy walk into town. Room was clean and large. Fridge, coffee, microwave etc as to be expected with a Best Western. Bed comfortable and nice bathroom. Staff friendly. Buffet breakfast good. Easy parking. Stayed here en route to see the giant Redwoods - particularly 'General Sherman' Recommended

Very nice and clean hotel with a nice breakfast offering in the morning. The pool and the hot tub were also nice. The fitness room looked good but I did not use it. Close to town and restaurants. Nice Staff

I usually stay in Tulare, Ca at the Town and Country, but they were booked by the time I realized I would need a room for the night. Took a chance on this one and I'm glad I did. It is 10X's nicer and quieter than Tulare, although it's about 25 miles out of my way. I will probably stay here from now on when I work in Visalia.

Great service and good rooms. Fridge and cofee/tea in the room. Only downside is that there is too little light in the main room. Adding a light in the room ceiling would solve this. Recommended if you want to visit the Sierra Nevada - especially the sequoia national park.

"Above and beyond!!!"

20/10/2016

You can not go wrong staying at this hotel... the staff are extremely awesome. They go above and beyond to see that their guests are taken care of. They were gracious in helping me with my bags, etc., and relocating me to anther room on the lower floor when one was available. I highly recommend this hotel and will be staying here again.

"Nice surprise!"

It was right on my way to sequoia national park, and it was in my opinion a very quick drive up to the park. the room was beautiful! clean and spacious. the price is comparable, and the staff was extremely welcoming. The bed was sooo comfortable and the sheets were crisp and new feeling. I loved it!

Here in the small farming town of Exeter, lies a hidden jewel sort of out of the way. But what a treat it was while I stayed here. I stayed here to go to Sequoia National Park. The room was great and the breakfast was average.I base that on staying at two of the best in all of the B/W's that I have stayed at. All in all a very good place to stay.

New facility in a nice community It was about 40 minutes from Sequoia National Park, and the drive to the park was very scenic. The hotel was convenient and perfect for our stay The staff was accommodating and very pleasant. Breakfast included several options and was a nice start to the day before going to the park

"Best Western Excellence"

25/09/2016

This hotel was right up to the expectations of a Best Western and if I was in this area again I would stay there! The rooms were clean and relatively new. The service at check in and throughout the stay was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good and the service there was great too! We also received a welcome give when we arrived which added to the stay.

"Very good "

16/09/2016

This is one of the better Best Western hotels. The rooms are spacious. The internet is good and fast. Breakfast is included and you have many choices. Staff is very friendly. I can recommand this hotel if you are not so far away from it.

"About as Good as it Gets in Exeter"

13/09/2016

We chose this place because of its proximity to Sequoia Park - about 45 minutes away. Hotel has two floors with outside entrance - no elevator. From outside, it looks like the 1950's. There also isn't much else to choose from in Exeter. Room was good size and clean - no complaints there. Front desk staff had a list and map of restaurants in town. We went twice to East Meet West run by an Oriental couple who were very friendly and who produced very good food. It's about one mile north of the hotel. Breakfast was ok, nothing great.

"Friendliest Staff"

26/08/2016

Staff at check in was super friendly, helpful and with a great sense of humor. We asked for a recommendation for dinner and was told to check out Charles Street - a great recommendation. Lisa runs the breakfast and does a fantastic job of ensuring all the guests have everything they need and enjoy their meal.

"Nice property but a long way from anything"

4
24/08/2016

This was a nice hotel. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Breakfast was good and it is reasonably priced.However, it is a long drive to the entrance to Sequoia National Park and then a very long drive to the visitor center. There were also a very limited number of options for places to eat. We drove into the little town and found only a Subway, a Burger King and other fast food places to eat. Don't know that I would stay here again just because it wasn't convenient.

"Great gateway to the Sequoias"

23/08/2016

What a surprise to find this little gem of a hotel. We extended our stay from one night to two after we checked in - as it was a long drive from LA. Beds were very comfy, breakfast was excellent, room was modern, updated and very clean. And the pool was lovely - it was 105 degrees there! Bring your suits! Just down the street was a little town with lots of interesting shops and restaurants. First night we ventured to Visalia and went to Quesadilla Gorilla for dinner which we HIGHLY recommend, 2nd night we went to Frosty King in Exeter for great mexican food (yes! Frosty King!). The sequoias are about 35 windy, windy miles away - what a beautiful drive and this was a great hotel to come back to after that day trip.

Only an hour from the Sequoia National Park .New , clean, and very good breakfast.the price was good considering California is pretty expensive. Quality sheets and pillowsu won't be disappointed.Tv, microwave,. Great place to rest your head.Not much to do in town

"Seventeen Years New"

21/08/2016

I was very surprised to find this new feeling hotel was 17 years old. Great service, breakfast was decent, and rooms were outstanding. The only complaint i had is my room (207) had a very loud air conditioning unit. Other rooms belonging to associates did not have loud units. I grew up not far away and know that part of the draw for this particular hotel is that is 30 minutes from the very expensive lodging in Three Rivers and is a much cheaper alternative for vacationers visiting Sequoia-Kings National Park. Ben at the front desk was very helpful throughout our stay.

20/08/2016

Beautiful Hotel in the middle of nowhere! We stayed here on a trip to visit Sequoia because there were no affordable accommodations left closer to the park for our travel dates. 45 minute drive to and from Sequoia was rough but the hotel was nice to come back to. Only complaint is one evening had to wait a few hours to shower because there was no water on in the hotel. Otherwise the breakfast was good (scrambled eggs and sausage or bacon, waffle bar and continental breakfast fixings) , the facility was immaculately clean and the staff friendly and helpful.

This hotel is a very good place to stay in the area. Well maintained and clean. The staff went out of their way to help us with a myriad of questions and good answers. I felt secure and safe at the hotel.

"Perfect"

16/08/2016

My husband and I stayed here for one night while we visited Kings Canyon & Sequoia National Parks. This place is newly updated and, once the door is closed, it feels more like a hotel than a motel. Super clean and comfortable. The coffee wasn't bad either. We would stay here again.

"Great Hotel On A Budget"

07/08/2016

Our family was traveling on a tow day road trip to Sequoia and Kings Canyon and decided to stay at this hotel which is just outside the two parks and national forest (about 20 minutes). I totally recommmend staying at this hotel when traveling on a budget. Great price for a great room; and beds were perfect (had a great sleep). Breakfast was good; they stated they are working to make it even better. Staff was friendly and accommodating.

"Good value"

30/07/2016

Enjoyed our stay here, clean, comfortable with friendly helpful staff. The purpose of the trip was to hike Sequoia National Park, good location. There are bed & breakfast places much closer to the park but they're expensive and most are not eye appealing from the outside.

Great for a 1 night stay for a trip to Sequoia National Forest. Clean, nicely appointed room, Free Breakfast, Cute little town. Pool and Jacuzzi were great after a long day of hiking. Rooms were decorated with the beautiful Giant Forest Redwood trees. Mini Suites with 2 beds - perfect for a family of 4.

Very nice. There was some confusion about my request for a ground floor room when I made the reservations but this was corrected when I arrived. The room was clean and comfortable and the air conditioner was on so the room was cool when we got there. It was over 100 outside.

02/07/2016

We chose this location to be close to Sequoia National Park. The hotel was wonderful, with touches that made it unique to both the area and the management. The pool was clear, clean and refreshing, with the hot tub right there. The continental breakfast had a nice selection of items, above the standard offerings. The staff was very helpful. I absolutely would stay here again.

Exeter Best Western is a great hotel / motel if you going to Sequoia National Park. We normally stay at 4 to 5 star hotels. I have never stayed at a Best Western before. It was a great experience. The room was decent size and very clean. The price was great. Free breakfast in the lobby every morning that was good. Nothing fancy, just coffee , juice, yogurt, cereal, bagels, and pastries. Beds were comfortable. They should consider adding HD to the television. Overall great stay for 3 days.

Partially updated rooms are clean, comfortable and modern. AC is cold but a little noisy. Free continental breakfast was very decent. Office staff was very friendly. Stayed here because if proximity to Sequoia Nat Park. Be sure to go into the main town and see the hand painted murals on the buildings.

Stayed here on way to Sequoia National Park. The hotel is clean and comfortable, which is all we really needed. The staff were very friendly. Did use the pool and hot tub, which were nice. The breakfast was basic, but good enough.

"Great rate, great stay"

16/06/2016

This was the cheapest hotel during our 9-day trip to California. And, it was actually the cleanest and most impressive for the price. Internet worked well. Room was clean. Bed was comfy. Breakfast was a typical continental breakfast, but the staff person there was very attentive and constantly refilling and checking on things. we just needed a place to stay after visiting Sequoia.. we didn't want to drive three hours to the west coast tired.

"Good for an overnight stop"

13/06/2016

Hotel was good for an overnight stop, breakfast (included in price) was really good. There wasn't much around for dinner, we had to drive to Vasalia for dinner, ate in a great place called BrewBakers. Really good food.

"Great stay, great staff!!"

13/06/2016

Stayed one night on our way to Sequoia national park. Clean comfortable room, good night sleep and a nice breakfast. But what makes this hotel exceptional is: left my fitness tracker (gift from my kids) behind, realized later that evening, very upset, called hotel who advised me to call and speak with young woman at front desk. I called following morning and my tracker had been found by housekeeping and the young woman graciously arranged to have bracelet shipped to my home address. I was overwhelmed by the housekeeping staffs honesty and the young woman at front desk who helped me, I will be sure to tell this story to friends and family and would definetly recommend this hotel.

"Memorial Day Weekend"

07/06/2016

We were pleasantly surprised by how nice the room was. They were doing some remodeling and painting when we arrived for early checkin. The hotel is a diamond in the rough as there isn't much in the surrounding area to include three rivers. The drive to Sequoia Natl Park is about 30 minutes depending on how fast you drive. From the entrance of the park it can take another hour or so depending on where your going so I would factor that in to staying here. Driving through Three Rivers I didn't see anything quite as nice, and enjoyed the BW Exeter seclusion and not as crowded as the Three Rivers options. Would definitely stay here again when busting the area.

"Great place to stay at the gates to Sequoia"

05/06/2016

The property is quite new and very clean. The service was excellent. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub as the sun was setting after a long day of touring. Our room was more in line with a room at a BW Plus. The breakfast was excellent and well stocked in spite of being a holiday weekend.

"Little Gem at the gates of Sequoia..."

05/05/2016

This is probably the best hotel in the area in every aspect. Affordability, cleanliness, friendly staff and closeness to the Sequoia National Park entrance. The only problem with this hotel is that they have only 32 rooms and fills up quickly. So make your reservation in advance if you'd like to enjoy this little gem at the gates of Sequoia!

26/04/2016

Hotel was in a good location for sequoia national park. They were extremely helpful in accommodating us for an extra night. The room was comfortable but was very dusty and Spoke to reception about it and when we got back in the evening it was a lot cleaner. Breakfast was included in the stay as well and wifi in the room. The staff were very nice as well. Great laundry facilities too. The only downside was we were woken up very early hours of the morning with people coming back to their rooms

I stay here frequently for business. The hotel is clean, well run and the staff is very caring and professional. This property is actually nicer than some of the Best Western Plus properties I have stayed in. It is the best choice in the Exeter area and a good stopping point on the way to Sequoia National Park.

"Good hotel for Sequoia NP"

29/03/2016

This hotel is in very calm and small city. Access to Sequoia NP gate takes about 40 min. Breakfast is very excellent. Bed is little bit small for two adults and of course, this problem is same for most best-western hotels. In summary, this hotel is very comfortable and good for this price.

I recently stayed at this hotel during a visit to Sequoia National Park. This hotel is a little way from the park entrance (40 minutes) but it was the only hotel available last minute over the Thanksgiving weekend. We were pleasantly surprised by the hotel. The rooms had clearly been renovated recently and were obviously well looked after. In terms of value for money this hotel is a good option for a brief stop prior to exploring the beautiful southern portion of the Sierra Nevada.

This hotel has been updated with beautiful textured wallpapers, paint and a nice new bathroom. The hotel was quiet and staff were very kind. Size of the room was great to two people as well. Would stay again!!

"Very nice hotel in Exeter, and a great home base for visiting Sequoia National Park"

4
30/11/2015

We stayed here as a home base for visiting the General Sherman tree and Sequoia National Park. It worked out great for that. The park is a short drive though once you get in the mountains it is a slow drive with windy roads so it takes over an hour due to the windy road and slow speeds you need to drive at. The hotel itself was nice. Lots of easy free parking, nice breakfast area, and the room was decent, though a bit on the smaller side (especially the bathroom area). It has that motel feel with parking right outside the room door. This is right on the outskirts of town, though the town is small so restaurants are not far away. It is by many orange tree groves so that was fun to see. For a place to stay for day-tripping into the Giant Sequoia forest, this worked out great. Thanks for reading.

We checked in really late on Friday night. The woman who checked us in was very nice and assured us that because one of our parties would have to switch rooms during our stay that she would make sure that it would be done for us seamlessly- AND IT WAS!!! That was FANTASTIC!! Everyone was very nice!! The breakfast staff! The place was beautiful and clean! The beds were comfortable!

13/10/2015

Overall the hotel is average. We are rewards members and tend to stay at BW when we can. The room was clean, but the bed was way too firm for us. There were noisy people upstairs of us that we almost had to call the office on before they finally quieted down. So from that you tell that sound carries here. Breakfast was what you expect. There is absolutely no good dining in the area. Travel to Visalia for any dining.

29/09/2015

My wife and I recently stayed here for two nights while visiting Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. The hotel is located just out of the business area in Exeter, so, it is fairly close to services and stores (although preferable to drive). The rooms seemed to be fairly new, and they were clean, nice sized, quiet, and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The included hot / cold breakfast was pretty much the standard fare for Best Western. The location was approximately 28 miles from Sequoia NP with about a 40 minutes drive via CA-198. TV and wi-fi services worked well. Of the BW 6 hotels where we stayed during our trip, I would rate this the best, and would definitely stay there again.

I was in the area for a wedding. Check in and check out was great. Staff was super friendly and helpful, even gave me toothpaste upon request. Room was sparkling clean and smelled fresh. The mattress was amazingly comfortable as well as the pillows. The breakfast was listed as "continental" but they had hot eggs and waffles in addition to a plentiful selection of the normal continental menu. Coffee was strong and fresh. Didn't use the pool but it looked very clean. Overall I think this was the best Best Western hotel I have ever stayed at. 4 Stars!

We stayed here for an early start to Sequoia. The room was very clean and comfortable if a little 'business' for a casual stay. We used the pool and spa which was a nice place to cool off and relax after a long day driving. Breakfast was also good, plenty of options to choose from. There is a gym too with treadmills and bikes.
