This is a great place for your Mt. Whitney base "camp" or if you find yourself in Lone Pine. It's clean, reasonably priced, has good AC, a nice flat screen tv, fridge, coffee maker and really friendly owners. It's a great location in town too. Highly recommend it!!!

Absolutely clean with wi-fi, big-enough fridge, good aircon, microwave and a bathtub! This is an older motel that was compleltely remodeled--very nicely--in recent years. This is the second year in a row we have stayed for several days. We will keep coming back. The people who own and operate this motel are friendly and just a pleasure to deal with.... More

This is a small roadside hotel in a small town. On our tail end of a very long road trip we stayed here and it was very nice. The owners are very nice and helpful and it was very clean. Everything we needed was provided. The AC worked well. The bathroom was spacious. They have a larger room with three... More

The room was very clean, reasonably priced, and remodled. Though not very big it was nice and on the highway through town and walking distance to all restrants. The staff was very nice and room had a reffer and microwave.

This is a small, out-of-chain motel. It is very moderately priced and conveniently located. You need to call in for reservations. It was recently renovated and has everything a tired traveler needs: clean comfortable beds, nice hot showers, fridge, microwave and a wide-screen TV. Room was very clean. Even if prices are lower than in other motels in the area,... More

Arrived in Lone Pine I had a look at several motels and after inquiring a few about their rates I opted for the Portal Motel. I remembered it was related well enough on Tripadvisor. At the check in anything went fine, the room was spacious and it included a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The wireless connection was complimentary. Why... More

Can't go wrong with this place. It is clean and great location. Right next to MacDonald. Easy to walk over for breakfast in the morning. Service was great with strong wifi connection. Will stay again next time when we go to Death Valley.

We check every place in town on prices by driving the short main street. This place was $49, clean inside and out, and had a nice couple checking us in and cleaning the rooms. Great place for an affordable and clean option prior to or after a Death Valley visit.
