We stayed one night in dow villa after a day trip from death valley, we didn't expect it to be so lovely, the room was spacious and clean, and it had everything we needed and more. It was far better than some hotels I've stayed at. I would definitely recommend this motel if you're visiting lone pine

Friendly and helpful staff. Nearby a couple of breakfast and dinner places. The room was typical motel room, but clean and rather quiet. Location ideal for the Death Valley visits. Good place to stay a night or two.

My wife and I stopped here after visiting Death valley for the day and were very pleased with the room, it was clean, comfortable and there was a refrigerator and microwave too. It's a good location in the center of town, there's a self serve car wash across the street, which came in handy, and every thing else is within... More

Great value for the money ($72 for senior single) with AAA or AARP. Room had refrigerator and microwave. Room was decorated above average for this price of a motel. Can drive close to room with no stairs to climb. Access to computers in the lobby. Room is located within easy walking distance to restaurants. Photos in the historic hotel section,... More

Stopped over here on a drive from San Francisco to Las Vegas. It's perfect for a quick one night stay as it's close to the centre of town for food etc and check in/out was all very quick with no problem finding a parking space. The room was very large, clean and functional. It's slightly on the pricey side in... More

There is a lot of history at the Dow Villa Hotel. If those walls could talk, you would learn much about the history of the Owens Valley. The Duke stayed there as well as many other western film stars over the years. Many a western was filmed nearby in early days of Hollywood as well as some recent blockbusters. Today... More

We booked this hotel as we wanted to visit Death Valley in a day. When I booked, I followed the advices and asked for a room in the motel. Unfortunately for us, we had a room in the hotel. Yes, it is "old-fashioned" and full of history, but what a bad experience!!! :( We had the room 150 (?), the... More

While en route to camping near the local abandon mines myself and 10 friends stayed at the Dow Villa. The rooms and property were well kept and clean. At check in we were warmly welcomed despite being a large group of guys who could have been trouble (which we provided none of). The motel is right off the main strip... More

What a lovely hotel. Would recommend to anyone that likes history. Reserved two rooms with Queen beds. The hotel is historic and wasnt sure what to expect. The rooms were adorable and the sink in the room and the attached toilet and shower were clean and everything worked great. The WIFI was sharp. There was an adorable little garden with... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the comfortable, spacious lobby with complimentary coffee. Our room was in the mail building up the stairs with a private bath (not all rooms have that). The radiator in the room showed it's authenticity as older but the bathroom tile work was a nice update but staying in theme. We like quiet and although we... More
