We stayed her on the first night of our week long vacation. IT broke up the trip to So. Caliifornia. THe room was very clean and obvioulsy recently redecorated, very up to date. Check-in went smoothly. The beds were comfortable, too. The only drawbacks are that it was hot and the room air conditioner had to be on constantly to... More

The historic hotel section is great if you are looking to step back in time. The Motor Inn is best if you want all the amenities. I stay at the Dow Villa in the Historic Hotel every year for the Lone Pine Film Festival in October and the staff could not be nicer. the Rooms are clean and the service... More

Wouldn't recommend it but have no complaints. The rooms were cleanish, there were a couple of bugs but expected for the location. The air conditioning isn't the best but cools the room eventually and we gave up trying to get on the wifi in the end as neither of the logins we were given worked. However I would highly recommend... More

We stayed in the Roy Rogers room which is old but clean and comfrontable The lobby is full of movie history, like a visit to a museum. The staff is friendly an use to accommodating hikers and special request.

We stayed there a couple of days while visiting Death Valley. Found it to be a good little property. Bed was comfy, good shower, a bit small but it worked for our needs. I suppose the only issue was the internet on the second night of out stay. It died at about PM and stayed down the rest of the... More

Stayed at the motel for one night on the second floor. Good location, near restaurants, grocery shop, coin operated laundry and petrol station. There's a McDonald's diagonally across the street too. Nice, clean rooms. Love the comfortable bed. Great view of the mountains!

Stayed here for 1 night, found the hotel to be nice and clean. The staff were friendly and after our room key stopped working, they sorted the problem in probably less than a minute so no major problems there. In short walking distance there are a few places to eat, with nice picturesque views of the mountains. If we were... More

Stayed here on my way back to Los Angeles from Whitney Portal. Overall a good stay, but compared to the nearby and similarly priced Best Western, not quite as nice. I stayed on the first floor and felt the rooms were too noisy, as we were able to hear the TV blaring from the neighbors room, and footsteps and banging... More
