regarding your stay in the Three Rivers area:
motels, bed-and-breakfasts, and other overnight
accommodations in Three Rivers and the surrounding
areas are family-owned and operated. They
all aim to please, and if there is something
amiss in your room or with the service, they
would appreciate knowing about it and, in
addition, will do everything possible to provide
the assistance you require.
this is a rural area and there are some fundamental
elements that are beyond the owner's control,
Unless your cell-phone provider is AT&T,

Many lodging facilities offer free wireless
Internet, but it will be slower than that
which is available in metropolitan areas.
In the summer in Three Rivers, it is hot,
sometimes hitting 100 degrees for several
days at a time. All motel rooms are air-conditioned,
but some of the small, in-room type of units
may produce more noise through the night than
what you may be accustomed to at home.
There are bugs here and although we have attempted
for many generations to eradicate every last
one, they keep returning. Lodging facilities
work hard to keep rooms and grounds insect-free,
but at some point you may encounter ants,
mosquitoes, a spiderweb, or yellowjackets.
In the case of ants, keep all sweets in sealed
baggies or sealed containers and they won't
be attracted to the area.
In exchange for these minor inconveniences,
Three Rivers residents have the privilege
of residing in one of the last, best places
in all of California! Notice that there is
never a traffic jam (except on a three-day
weekend at the Sequoia National Park entrance),
there isn't a single stoplight in town, and
there isn't a view of the High Sierra like
this from any other town on the west side
of the range.
