Dow Villa Motel was the perfect place to have a rest from driving on our West Coast tour. The rooms were extremely comfortable. Highly recommended! Very short drive from the incredible surroundings of Death Valley. It was incredible waking up to the beautiful sight of the Alabama Hills, literally opposite the hotel.

The hotel is very big and we got there around 9pm so we had no parking inside. We parked outside on the back worrying for the luggage in our car (too big to carry up the stairs for just one night, everyday for a long trip..). There was a game room/salon at the entrance which was really beautiful and cared... More

I spent two nights for only $87.00 per night. The hotel was built in the 1920's.. The motel is in the back. The hotel has so many photos of all the movie stars that stayed at the hotel like John Wayne and Gene Autry. The area is famous for its hiking trails, Mt. Whitney, and the many movies filmed in...

I’m attaching a photo of a card I found on the desk in my room at the Dow Villa Motel. What would “Consumer Reports” think of a business using their trademarks? It’s one thing to say something like “If you like us, tell others. If not, please tell us so we can try to do something about it”, as this... More

After 3 weeks of backpacking in the Sierras we were ready for hot shower and the comfort of a bed. Dow Villa delivered both. The stuff was friendly and found a room for us even though we arrived a day earlier then we had a reservation scheduled for. The original reservation we had was for the motel part where rooms...

The DOW Villa is really excellent, the prices are reasonable, the rooms are great and the location is heavenly. The Dow villa is surrounded by stunning scenery and fits this environment very. The connections with Film making are a nice bonus too. Its a great spot to visit Death Valley and Mt Whitney as well as the Alabama Hills. Then... More

We booked the Dow Villa via a cell phone call from the top of Mt. Whitney after spending 28 days on the John Muir Trail and hearing good reviews from fellow hikers. Our room in the historic part of the inn was just what we needed. While a bit on the small side, we had a comfy bed, great shower... More

Room was clean with a comfortable bed. The fridge and microwave is nice. There aren't lots of quality restaurants so having your own food along is nice. It is very close to restaurants and shopping along the main street but the entire main street is only several blocks. The free wi fi was ok, but fairly slow. When we arrived... More

We chose the historical hotel through trip advisor for a stop over between Grand Canyon and Yosemite National Park. Rooms were tidy and clean. Pool very clean and lovely and refreshing after a day driving. Tea and coffee provided in the communal lounge. This lounge is full of photos of John Wayne and other actors out of the old westerns....

We spent one night here after picking up our daughter and son-in-law who just finished hiking the John Muir Trail from Yosemite. They especially appreciated the high pressure shower and comfy bed! We stayed in the main hotel...just down the hall on the first floor from rooms used by John Wayne and Roy Rogers! The rooms are old fashioned but... More
