The Hotel is a museum of Hollywood westerns. Independence was once the favored location for shooting westerns and the hotel has lots of photos of film crews and extras on location, as well as great photographs of Gene Autry,Roy Rodgers, John Wayne and others. The lobby is big and comfortable. Lots of chairs, a small library and board games for... More

Much of Lone Pine's tourist trade appears to be hikers or tourists. The Dow seems to do well with a full house on the Monday night we stayed there. Quite expensive for motel, but worth it given location and facilities. It's hot there in August - the historic hotel has piped cooled air, whereas the motel rooms have individual air... More

We had a one night stopover in Lone Pine, on the way from Nevada to Yosemite. Based on TA reviews, we decided to stay at the Dow Villa Motel. We stayed in a ground floor room, near the pool. The room itself was fine. Quite small, but enough for us (me, my wife and two sons) for a night. The... More

We spent 3 nights are Dow Villa and couldn't be happier. The location is great, close to many restaurants. The pool is so nice after long day of hiking. The front desk service was great, really helpful.

We stayed for one night prior and one night post our Mt. Whitney hike. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, The rooms were newly redecorated, clean and comfortable. After our first night, I cancelled our reservation at another hotel in order to return to the Dow Villa after our hike. Highly recommend!

We stayed here for a night, not knowing quite what to expect. When we made our reservation, we were told that several rooms would have to share a bath and shower. OK, what the heck. We pictured a queue outside the bathroom doom. Didn't happen. The staff was great and willing to go the extra mile for you. If you... More

After doing my research we booked the Dow Villa based on its reviews and we were not disappointed. Although it was only an over night stop, we appreciated the service of the reception staff who checked us in within minutes and the room we found to be clean and comfortable with free wifi!! Hubby really appreciated the coffee maker and... More

We have stayed at the Dow Villa around 9 times now and we just love it. We are officially loyal Dow Villa customers. The rooms are always clean, customer service is always helpful (especially Benjamin), and it is close to everything. This time we took advantage of the pool, which was also clean, and there was plenty of seating around... More
