4 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Room was very clean, everything works and seems very modern. Good wifi - Nothing to not like. This motel affords wonderful views of Mt Whitney and the surrounding area. There is a good bit of noise from the hiway but the motel is very nice.

We stayed here one night after spending a few days in Death Valley. Lone Pine is a wonderful town and Dow Villa Motel adds to it. This hotel gets the small things right. It's clear they care about their guests and the experience. It's extremely well kept, charming and conveniently located (waking distance) to a few delicious restaurants. I highly... More

We were so pleasantly surprised by this motel, having driven in a zag zag fashion from Seattle, destination Las Vegas via Death Valley. We had planned two options, stop at Bishop or continue to Lone Pine (both offered Landscape Photography Options) we decided on the latter... one quick drive through the town gave us a number of Motel options, we...

We booked to stay here for one night on our way through from Death Valley. The motel was clean, tidy and the room was spacious with plenty of space for our luggage (5 suitcases) and the 5 of us (2 adults, 3 kids). After a day of driving, we didn't feel like going out for dinner so were pleased that... More

We stayed at the Dow Villa for a couple days over the New Year's holiday. We got a King room with a whirlpool tub for under $90. The room was a good size, very clean, and had a really comfy bed. Flat screen with plenty of channels. The whirpool bath was a great way to warm up and relax at... More

Wow! Want a great experience. My husband and I wanted a small town “Thanksgiving” weekend. We were not disappointed; the staffs at the Dow Villa were helpful and friendly. The two nights we stayed there, we would stop in the main lobby were some other guests would be wondering about a movie shot in the Alabama hill and we would... More

Our family of 5 were staying in a ground floor room with 2 very comfortable queen beds and a not so comfortable sofa bed. The room was spacious and clean but we did get some noise from the room upstairs. The pool area was busy on this hot day, but there were still plenty of lounges and chairs. Everything was... More

The old part of the hotel is hardly modern, but that's the point. The heyday of the hotel was in the 30's and 40's when John Wayne & Co came to make western movies in the area and they stayed at the hotel. So when you set in the reception area, its like being transported back to that era and... More

We booked this at the last minute. It was very well priced with comparison to some other places we stayed and we were pleasantly surprised. Situated near the centre of Lone Pine this historic building built in 1923 serves as a great little motel. The view of Mount Witney from the parking lot is impressive. Staff were friendly and helpful,... More
