I had the best time at "the Cone" this summer. One might not expect such a gem in the middle of nowhere, but prepare to be mildly amazed. The rooms are clean, the appliances modern, and there are innumerable touches of quality at every turn. Your hosts, Roberta and Josh, have an impish sense of fun and imbue it into... More

I brought my friend up for the SoCal Rafting Tour. I picked this motel because it had good reviews. I was not disappointed. The front desk person, Kylie Rocha, was very charming and friendly. When I asked for extra pillows, she didn't hesitate to provide them. The hospitality crew led by Pablo Serreno was also very helpful. This was definitely... More

Stayed after the local fire, but booked before it started obviously. Had to see the fireworks on July 2nd in nearby Lake Isabella. No way were we going to not go. But there were tons of fire vehicles, which was no big deal. There were even firefighters staying at the Pinecone Inn. We checked in to the nice Australian and... More

If you're planning on visiting Kernville, the Pine Cone should be your first choice of places to stay. We had a large group, that we ended up with almost the entire place to ourselves.

Really Comfortable Rooms in a cool retro but nicely maintained property- hip little time capsule and good rates... It's right next to a killer brewery/restaurant too... it's like 50 steps away! The beds were especially nice and are obviously very new, and the staff was super nice too-

Clean and charming- I loved this place! The sweet Kiwi gal in the office is a delight. We loved the eccentric digs and the fantastic pool. Great spot to relax and bring a party. We came with friends, sat on the "upper deck" and watched the sunset. We were invited to enjoy a concert at their private lounge too. The... More

Upon walking in asking for price and availability. I was asked how many people. I said two and was quoted $95, great.... I park and walk back in and I'm told $105 if I don't want to share a bed with my brother in law. I told him I would reflect this in a review, "fine, then I'm not renting... More

We think this review speaks for itself; the potential guest did not ask for a room with two beds; our rooms with two beds are priced higher than our rooms with one bed; this person threatened us with a bad review if we did not lower our price. We apologize for the misunderstanding. More

Thank you for your review. We pride ourselves on our cleanliness and our relationships with our guests. We do indeed have 24-hour coffee service; there is a guest entrance to the lobby that perhaps was overlooked. We are not, however, a bed-and-breakfast; we are a motel with an attached event space. Thank you for your suggestions regarding the bathroom amenities. More
