This is a nice, clean little place with a great price. We had problems with the wireless--seems that even though they tell you the rooms come with wi-fi, not every room receives it. Be sure to request, when booking, a room close enough to the office for good reception. By stepping out of the room a few feet we had... More

This was our second winter stay at the Dow Villa Motel, and we have no reason to stay anywhere else. The Dow Villa Motel is an excellent value. The rooms are above average for a motel in that they have TVs with DVD players, a refrigerator, microwave, hair dryer, and toiletries provided. It certainly cuts down on the amount of... More

We decided to book this motel as we were travelling from Yosemite to the Death Valley and needed a place to stay in the middle. To be honest we didn't expect much for the more or less £50 that we paid, but the motel has been refurbished recently and looks great. Everything was very clean. Lone Pine is a lovely... More

We stayed one night at the Dow Villa and found the motel to be neat and clean. The motel is older but it is obvious that the owner(s) are interested in maintaining the property. The room had all the amenities including cable TV, refrig, micro, iron, and wifi. The only negative comment is that the bed was sooooo soft and... More

This room was small but furnished better than most motels. What I objected to were the dozen flies in the room when we checked in, the ants on the sink, and the low-flow toilet's tendency to overflow (three times in one night must be a record). There was a warning about the toilet buried under the towel pile that we... More

this motel is not bad, reasonably clean, basic standard, lacking in comforts, a little dowdy. Ok for 1 night. Town is interesting with a couple of authentic looking western bars, fantastic views of hills, and a couple of decent places to eat.

Excellent clean rooms, that have a good sized refrigerator, a microwave,video and dvd player, and comfortable beds. Very clean and quiet. Nice lobby , lounge and patio. Don't expect to spend much time in the pool, as they allow the community children to use it as a plunge. Lots of local kids in the pool with cut-offs and t-shirts. They... More
