Very Good Motel with very friendly staff, our first night in USA after driving up from LA. Room very comfortable with comfortable bed , good free Wi-Fi connection. In the centre of the town so able to walk to local shops and restaurants. Ideal place to explore cowboy country which is close by. Great Views of Mount Whitney.

We stopped into the Dow Villa after a trip to Death Valley, and I am glad we did. While we didn't stay in the historic section of the motel, we still had a lovely room. Our room had 2 of the most comfortable beds I have ever had in a hotel. The TV had Direct TV with gobs of channels.... More

After reading reviews, decided to stay here after hiking in Death Valley. So glad we tried the Dow Villa. It is difficult to find decent lodging at a reasonable price around Death Valley. Dow Villa is a nice surprise with comfortable beds and quiet rooms. We walked next door and ate at The Grill which was good. Also, drove and... More

Dow Villa is definitely the best place to stay in Lone Pine. It's in the center of town and walking distance to restaurants, shops, market, drug store, etc. Its connection with Western films, John Wayne, and others is an added bonus. The motel rooms are comfortable and recently refurbished. Wifi is strong. Staff is pleasant. Many rooms have a view... More

On a strike team for a fire drove bout an hour after a long day and dinner to finally get a shower and rest. Outside the older style sign and simplicity make you think you'd rather skip it. Don't do that. The rooms are large clean, great pillows, sitting chairs and table flat screen tv large bath jetted tub. That's... More

Just a one night stay on the way to Death Valley. Centrally located in Lone Pine, walking distance from pretty much everything in town. The room was huge and the queen beds were comfortable. The front desk staff was friendly, everything was clean, and the fridge, microwave and free wifi were a nice touch. Could not have been any better!

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
