I was pleasantly surprised by the comfortable, spacious lobby with complimentary coffee. Our room was in the mail building up the stairs with a private bath (not all rooms have that). The radiator in the room showed it's authenticity as older but the bathroom tile work was a nice update but staying in theme. We like quiet and although we... More

Our motorcycle group of 40 riders pulled into the Dow Villa last week. We figured it was just another motel in a small town. What a surprise to walk into a beautifully decorated and clean room! The rooms are in a horseshoe configuration with the pool in the middle. The check-in was fast and the staff was great and very... More

Cute little motel at the base of Mt. Whitney. It was our stopover between Death Valley and Yosemite. Room was clean and very comfortable. The restaurant right next door was a great spot for dinner as well.

We really liked the place! It is very clean, staff is extremely friendly and there is surprisingly fast WiFi. It is cute too! All in all, more than enough for one night stay on our trip to Death Valley! Highly recommended!

My wife called and made reservations on our way to Lone Pine. Fortunately we got in to the Dow Motel. The people at the front desk were incredibly nice. We decided to stay another night and they set it up with no problems. The rooms were clean, good sized and comfortable. The view of the mountains are as good as... More

We stayed two nights and enjoyed our time in Lone Pine. Very well maintained property with attention to detail - fresh paint, convenient ice machines and cool movie memorabilia. Large fridge and microwave in room and nice hd tv with direct tv. will return.

What a reasonably priced, cozy stay! I didn't discern the difference between the hotel and motel when I was booking. The hotel looks like a wonderful stay too - perhaps next time. The motel had a great queen room price; we opted for the king deluxe for a view of Mt. Whitney. With a sitting area, bar area with frig,... More

We spent one night in Lone Pine before entering Death Valley and chose Dow Villa because we love old historic buildings. We asked for an upstairs quiet room and got a small, clean, freshly painted room with a small wash stand in the bedroom and toilet and bathtub/shower to the side overlooking the parking area. We were pleased with the... More

We ended up choosing the Dow over the Best Western on a Sunday night since it appeared there were a few more rooms further from the highway, even though the Dow did not offer a free breakfast and cost slightly more. We looked at the historic hotel rooms, but they seemed a bit musty and small (note that not all... More

The Dow Villa Motel is easy to overlook, sort of tucked in among the rest on the main highway through town, but it has a lot going for it. Location is excellent, in easy walking distance to the town and places to visit or eat or shop. Location is terrific, in that it looks directly across the picturesque Alabama Hills... More
