We hear that this isn't the best town to vacation in, but if you are only staying one overnight - in route to Sequoia parks, then I am sure you won't be terribly disappointed. Pick a hotel carefully. A more enticing option would be Springville, just up the road a piece - with a few cute hotels, cafes and a big river flowing thru town.
