Stayed in motel room with King bed. Clean, with standard amenities, and thankfully fully functioning a/c unit. Pool and hot tub were also very clean and had spectacular views of the mountains. Great location, mid-town, with restaurants close by. Perfect stop-over.

We stayed at the Dow Villa Motel for two nights. The night prior to our hike up Mt. Whitney and the night post hike. The staff was truly accommodating and friendly. We were able to store our bags in their storage room during our hike, so we didn't have to leave them in the car. The pool was a welcomed... More

We stayed at the historic side "The Historic Dow". It was great. In our case, we were coming out of the Eastern side of Yosemite, so Lone Pine was a good "mid-point". the hotel itself was very charming. Very fun to walk around and look at all the movie memorabilia. Additionally, certain rooms have plaques telling you which famous movie... More

Great hotel with lots of character. A step back in time without inconveniences. Ben and Yolanda helped us on short notice find accommodations during a very peak time. Their professionalism, courtesy and commitment to customer service are unmatched. If the entire hospitality industry had their drive and commitment, there would be no need for review sites. They are the epitome... More

We stayed two nights so the hubbie could get acclimated to the altitude before his summit to Mt. Whitney. The room was clean, stocked with fresh towels, toiletries, coffee and all the things you need when traveling with baby (AC, fridge, microwave and DirectTV with PBS Kids). Comfy beds but slightly lumpy pillows. The staff were friendly and helpful and... More

On our way back to San Diego, we spent 1 night at the Dow Villa Motel and I would highly recommend this motel. The rooms are clean, modern and well appointed. The pool area is nice and the location within the town is excellent (you can walk to everything). The staff was friendly and very helpful. The only downside was... More

This hotel is fine for what it is. Staff friendly and helpful and we managed to sleep 5 in one room without too much trouble. Nothing to complain about nothing to write home about either. But it's central in a charming town and a good spot to stop between Las Vegas and Yosemite.

It was basically clean (except for the small local beetles, that didn't bite or present much of a concern), comfortable and pleasantly deccorated. With an in-room fridge & microwave, it could have been a pretty nice place to stay for more than one night. Plenty of pillows and towels were provided. Good air conditioning. Close to restaurants, walking distance. My... More

I have stayed in the Historic hotel numerous times over the past 15 years. In its heyday it housed some of the greatest Western stars in the movie industry. It may not rate three stars (or any, for that matter, since the Hotel is not rated, while the newer motel section is), but it is comfortable and charming, and the... More
