From the moment I pulled in, to the moment I checked out, I had an enjoyable stay. Firstly, excellent customer service from the front desk staff when I checked in. The rooms are modern, super clean, and have very thoughtful amenities. I could not recommend this motel more.

Place was very clean and had a wonderful view of snowy Mt Whitney. Stuff was great and provided in a timely manner any request that we had. Recommend the place anytime, even if you are just traveling by to get to Mammoth Mountains, good place to stop, enjoy the food and have a good night sleep.

I stayed here in August 2014 after hiking the JMT. The way our timing worked out, we had to stay Friday, Saturday and Sunday night in Lone Pine to wait for a bus south to pick up our rental car. Three relaxing days with a shower and all the restaurants on the strip in Lone Pine were just what we... More

After being locked out of staying within Death Valley Nat.Pk, over New Years we chose to stay in Lone Pine as a base to explore. We found the Dow Villa on-line and expected a basic tidy motel along busy US395. What we found was one of the best motels we've stayed in in years. Clean, efficient, friendly with amenities like...

Room looks just like the pictures - yup, really. The internet was great (I had to work and it was great). The customer service was great, lots of towels, extremely clean, the mini fridge was bigger and nicer than my daughter had in her dorm room at college. Ok ladies there is an iconic hair dyer on the wall... lots... More

I stay here all the time for work. Cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and always clean. Great staff - make sure and leave a tip for housekeeping. If you're hungry head down the street a few doors to Seasons Depending upon the time of year and if you're an early bird the sunrises right out your door... More

this is my third time staying here. Twice I've stayed in the older section which is very quaint and reminds me of home. We like to bring games and hang out in the living room area. It is very inviting and comfortable. Aaron made us coffee and was a great host. This time I stayed in the newer motel and... More

Love this Hotel, just recently stay here Nov. 4th & 5th 2014. Also stay here a couple of years ago. Would def. come back a third time. The room was very comfortable and clean. The lobby of the Hotel has pictures from long ago. Love the town of Lone Pine, easy walking to Resturants and the shops. Convient to Death... More

They gave us the Gene Autry room, and I'm old enough to know the name. There was an apparently resident retired star in the sitting rooms, at the computer repetitively streaming "Send In the Clowns," telling hotel staff about her day – music, film, stage: she never thawed enough to talk to me. There were a child-sized rocking chair and... More

This hotel has amazing interior design, very different from what you normally see in motels: hundreds of old photos, vintage decorations and furniture... great atmosphere. Lone Pine is a very nice town, too. If you're going from Yosemite to the Death Valley, you should definitely consider this as an option! It's true though that nothing shields you from the truck...
