Long road trip and were here just one night. We had been staying in very nice national park lodges and this was our last night. We went for budget. This wasn't much of a budget, but my travel companion didn't want to stay at a chain hotel. We should have. Over priced. Small room, beds are alright, but not real... More

Quiet, clean, and recently updated. The room was a nice size, pleasantly decorated, and with a kitchenette for an unexpected plus. Easy walk to restaurants. Only drawback was the early (10:30) checkout time..

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
