"Great location but..."
I came up in July and the AC wasn't working very well. It was failing in the my first room, and in the bar area. The hotels do not have individual AC units but rather a central AC that is either on or off. You can't control the temperature, which wasn't as cold as I had wanted it. Some of he rooms had nice touches like ceiling fans. The Wifi was probably […] the worst I had ever seen in a hotel. I could barely write an email without it crapping out. It said was connected, but simply refused to work. The Hotel staff was great, and I felt bad for them. It's really an icon that is falling apart. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value for the money"
This is the 3rd time I come to stay at this hotel over the last few years. Don't get me wrong, this is not a 5-start class hotel. But for the price, it's a great value for the money. The room is clean, the bed is firm. The pool is great for a summer staying. The only thing I feel missing is the complimentary breakfast. But couple of fast food restaurants […] are closed-by though. By the way, the Wi-Fi connection speed is pretty bad. The network is so so slow. But I guess a lot of people have smart phone with data-plan. So this may not be a big deal for a lot of folks. Next time, if we come to visit Sequoia National park, we will still stay at this hotel. Hard to beat it at this low price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Needs to update to 21st Century!"
We could hear every little noise coming from the next room, and the above, all night. Very annoying and sleepless night. Amenity was the minimum. Very disappointing! Easy access to the freeway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed our stay here. It was a convenient location. The rooms are good size and clean. The pool was large and not too crowded. A couple of things to note.. If you want a refrigerator or microwave in your room you need to request when you make your reservation. Also, You need a credit card upon check in for incidentals and it cannot be your debit/credit […] card. I was a little worried after reading some reviews that this was an older place and the rooms had an odor. It is an older hotel, but kept up very nice. We had two rooms and there were no issues with any weird odors. We will definitely stay here again! :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I reserved this room over a month in advance, and requested a small crib, microwave, and fridge. I called before staying here and I was assured my request was included in my reservation. We arrived to our room after a 4 hour drive and there were none of these items. I called and the front desk told me "housekeeping has left for the day" this was around […] 4pm. I was shocked. She told me she would call around and eventually they brought up a crib. (Thank goodness) however could not provide a fridge and was told I could go to the front desk to warm up my baby's milk in the middle of the night. Wow! I had to go purchase a cooler for my sons milk to keep it cold, and ran it under hot water from the coffee maker to make it warm. Had I known this was going to happen and couldn't have been provided with fridge or microwave ... I would have stayed elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

This is a terrific motel especially for its price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice quiet motel, retro feel to it"
Has a cool back in the day feel ! The room was nice .. Clean.. Comfy... My two complaints are. The channel selectin sucked only 10 channels or so. And it kinda stunk in my room .. Housekeeping should open up windows to air out rooms before people check inGenuine Expedia guest review
It was a nice place to stay, just the beds were not that comfy and we didn't have a fridge or microwave until 5 days after we checked in!Genuine Expedia guest review
Fabulous ... very clean ... very comfortable ... very quiet ... cafe on premises ... quick access to highway 198 ... Starbucks very close ...Genuine Expedia guest review
"You get what you paid for"
Staff was very friendly. Pool was closed due to a leak which was a total bummer. Room smelled very musty. Bed were comfortable and had beautiful bedspreads, but that is about as good as it got. The place needs a total overhaul. Walls are paper thin and you can hear your neighbor's bathroom routines.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet with huge pool!"
I was staying here to study for an upcoming licensing exam and it was perfect for this purpose. Very quiet and comfortable, huge room and huge bed. I enjoyed breaks from studying at the pool which was huge and relaxing!! I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not far from Sequoia"
My granddaughter and I loved it. Lamp Liter has the most beautiful grounds of any hotel I've ever stayed at and I'm 70. It has a great restaurant and is near other restaurants. I would highly recommend Lamp Liter to any traveler!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"location condusive with personal need."
Was nice, didn't spend much time at the hotel. The door locks and driveway need some attention, but all in all, was within my budget. Still have tube TV's!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"1 Night Business Stay"
Good location, quiet and comfortable. There is a restaurant/bar on the grounds that provides room-service. However, I was there on Memorial Day and they were closed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Entrance to Sequioa ."
Our rooms were very clean and ready, we did arrive earlier than check-in time. Staff gave us our rooms. Grounds are well kept and rooms meticulously clean. Loved the gardenias, at night they perfumed the air! Stay of 6 nights. Will definitely stay again if in the area. Location was great for access to National Parks in the area. Loved Visalia as we […] ll! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel close to freeway"
Pretty grounds, helpful staff, close to small mall with a restaurant on site.Genuine Expedia guest review
"was a great weekend"
The Inn was great, but I booked thru Hotel.com and they did not relay the booking correct to the inn. Luckily I had my booking print out and they honored my reservation for two rooms when they had only been told about one room. They were great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We could not figure out how to turn the a/c up or down - it was either on or off so when it was on we were too cold but when it was off we were too warm!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the grounds were well lit and the security was visible. the service clerk and house keepers were very nice and polite. i felt comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Garden like hotel close to downtown"
The hotel was very clean and calm. I truly enjoyed the outside garden landscape. There was great entertainment in the lounge and the appetizers were delicious. The bartender was very personable and so were the maids. Everyone seemed very happy to work for the hotel. I will stay again in the future.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Get what you pay for"
Hotel was ok nothing special. On the positive side it was right off the freeway and easy to find. It was close to downtown. It was a quick easy check in. Negative side, walls were dirty especially the bathroom looked like someone spilled something down one side. You can tell the only vacuum the mail part if the floor. There was old food under the table. […] The coffee pot had not been cleaned Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close enough for my needs"
Stayed here one night while on business trip in the area. Even though my business was not in Visalia Ca. decided to stay there based on reviews. Atmosphere and room cleanliness is my major concern, was not disappointed. Good value for the money, I would stay there again without hesitation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A good place to stop if you're headed to Yosemite"
Scores 100% on price and convenience: Close to Hwy 99, plenty of parking, on-premises coffee shop. Grounds are nice. Rooms are clean, if a bit drab. An ideal stopping place for those headed to Yosemite on Hwy 99 from LA or points south.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel grounds were beautiful, and the food at the grill was good. It was easily accessible, but a little too close to the freeway for perfect peace and quiet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice motel to stay at when in Visalia"
We stayed for 2 nights and it was very enjoyable. I loved the pillows. There are 4 pillows on each bed, and they are different thicknesses, so you can choose which one is just right for you.Genuine Expedia guest review
Forced to stay the first night, then checked out. No hot water for the shower and the room was in disrepair. No air conditioning or at least it wasn't cool. Neighborhood not the best. Would not recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Night's Sleep"
The room was quiet, very clean, spacious, extra touches, beautiful courtyard and good price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Staff was unprofessional"
When i arrived to check in, i was asked for a credit card. I said oh ok for incidentals? Iv pre paid. She was rude and said no u didnt. I was sure i did so i said let me find my payment online. During this she said i didnt have to stay. She was pushing me to leave. I used expedia before and it was always prepaid. I was wrong so i paid. But the first […] thing she said was i could go stay elseware. I will never be back there. No fridge no microwave very dated. Im a manager at a timeshare resort. Id never treat a guest in that manor.

"Beautiful and tranquil property"
The staff were very polite and helpful. Even the gardener helped me with my large suitcase. I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a great value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stay at the Lamplighter several times a year when we are in town for medical appointments. The staff was very responsive to my request for a bathtub/shower combo. Renovations and upgrades are ongoing. We are glad the owners are maintaining their assets and the wonderful mature landscaping. We love walking over to the grill for a great breakfast. […] Next time the weather will be warm enough for a swim. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great value for $$"
For $55, this was an excellent deal. This is a pleasant hotel with ok rooms, kind of typical 2 star hotel. It was clean and comfortable, perfectly adequate for a non-luxury type hotel stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was extremely happy with my stay. I had a connecting door that allowed for freedom between my room and my family. I had my dog with me, so I would have preferred a bottom floor, but we had a beautiful garden view that was easy to access.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No fridge, even when requested ahead"
Very serviceable motel, clean and neat, ok restaurant. Right next to a freeway, but inside rooms are quiet. Large facility. If you need a fridge you must be persistent. I asked for a fridge, in person, at the front desk, to an experienced employee, 2 days before our second rez. He keyed something into the system and gave me a lot of assurances and an […] "upgraded room". When we arrived, no fridge. A different desk employee gave me 15 min of excuses, that I was suppose to call the morning, AND again in the afternoon of the day of arrival. Would NOT accept that I had requested the fridge in person and was confirmed. He told me to use ice. Fine. Did they bother to provide the fridge on our following days?? NO. Not the worst inconvenience, but certainly not customer service, either. Just FYI Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is from the fifties but very well kept with beautiful landscaping around the pool area. Staff very helpfull and the room was clean. Traffic from the road but it did not keep us up and we had a room close to the road. Would come back. Nice little restaurant on premises.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for quick stay before Yosemite"
Slightly old facility but easy access to restaurants or marts to stock up supplies.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean But Dated"
The grounds of the property are beautiful; the on-property restaurant was very convenient; the staff was very friendly. The room we were given didn't look anything like the one shown on the website. It was a little on the dark side (poor lighting, except when we turned the track lights on and then it was too bright), very"retro-60's"! TV was an older […] CRT model (no flat screen); bathroom had poorly operating sliding window and no vent-fan; the tile floor (near the clothes bar - no closet) had a noticeable slope to it.

"Nice garden, good resturant."
It was very good, but it is too far to walk to downtown Visalia where the action and convention center are located. You'll need a car, but parking downtown is mostly free and easy to find. Takes 7-8 minutes to get there. Good price for a very pleasant place. Place is old but well kept and has all the features minus the fluff of a large hotel. Free internet […] is a plus for sure. All in all, I'd go back for another visit to Visalia or the Sequoia Big Trees. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall dissapointing for the cost"
The room got freezing in the middle of the night and there was not heater to turn on (or I could not find it). There was no hot water in the morning when I wanted to take a shower. There was a big gap at the bottom of the door that connected to the adjacent room and I could hear everything that was going on in the other room. The hotel advertised a […] restaurant and bar, but I only saw a diner that looked out of date. My room was also advertised as having a garden view, but it actually had a parking lot view. Still the staff was friendly and professional and the hotel was clean. I would probably not stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
