Dow is so much a part of the history of Lone Pine, and just hanging out in the lobby, looking at old photos, you can really absorb the flavor of the film history in the area. We have always stayed at Dow Villa and have never been disappointed; the employees are friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and reasonably... More

This property includes the original hotel as well as a modern motel. We chose to stay in the older building: large room, high airy ceiling, private bath with updated fixtures. Delightful ambiance, esp. in the old-style lobby, open stairway: a good place to spend a little quiet time in the evening. Room was quiet and comfortable. Staff was friendly and... More

This is a MUST stop, motor vehicles will not go past it. Dow Villa is, like Julius Caesar's Gallia, divided into 3 parts; the original 1940's Los Angeles revival part (2 Stories with lobby), the standard one story Route 66 style and the 2 story 1950's part where John Wayne stayed when he was in town making a shoot-em-up. Countless... More

There are plenty of other options in lone pine to stay at if you are traveling with family. If you have children or like to talk out loud- you might receive a noise complaint-oh wait, it wasn't you making all that noise? well you might just get blamed for it. paper thin walls! The price is fairly high compared to... More

This became a Motel where we wished we could have stayed longer. Advised by other DE's to stay in Lone Pine as part of our DV experience and BW Members we were pleasantly surprised after the BW was booked out. Location is everything and it's smack dab in Town ! Not the cheapest but still good value. It was clean... More

First , I want to thank Yolanda for her great professional ,and friendlly way she represents the Dow. Last Xmas we had to cancel a stay for medical reasons. We were told there was nothing that could be done about getting our money back. When we were able to take that trip, we passed by the Dow to see if... More

We stayed in the old hotel section. It was cozy, a little cold and a bit dated, as expected in a quaint old building. But a nice room and the building itself was wonderful, with fascinating photos on the walls.

I had discover this place coming back from a long hike (JMT) and been back few times since. The old hotel has a rich history with the movie industry back on the Wild West days with guests like Norman Clyde and John Wayne. Extremely clean, great price, staff is very friendly, helpful, communicative and accommodating. There is a 24hrs pool... More
