My family stays here every few months. Jim maintains a very nice place and he is friendly and accommodating! The rooms are clean and comfortable! We wouldn't stay anyplace else. If you are passing through or staging here for hiking or sight seeing this is your place.

This is our 3rd stay here at this quaint road side motel. Beautiful view of the Sierra's from your porch! The rooms are clean and Jim (owner/manager) is there to see that you feel right at home. The rooms have TV, heat, A/C, fridge, coffee and plenty of towels and blankets. Perfect place as a base for hiking and camping... More

I booked this hotel on the merits of trip advisor and so I feel a certain obligation to write about our stay. On arriving to the motel it was clear to us that it was located in an area with little or no services, the town it's in may as well not be there. There is a shell garage which... More

We booked a family room consisting of 1 queen & 1 full bed for 1 night as a stopover travelling between Mesquite, NV and Yosemite. When pulling up, the very first thing I noticed was the gardens of the Inn...absolutely wonderful, I cannot say how pleased I was to see Roses for the first time in a month! I never... More

If you're traveling north up 395 on your way to maybe Yosemite or Mammoth, the Independence Inn is the first motel you'll come to in Independence on the right hand side. Our suggestion is stop and take a room! Jim, the owner, demonstrates a tremendous pride in ownership of his recently fully renovated small comfortable inn. The rooms are immaculate... More

We didn't want to go to Lone Pine, then we decided to have a stop at Independence before going to Death Valley. The room was clean and the owner very nice and wifi was available for free. Before leaving he asked us if we had a map of Death Valley. As we had not, he nicely gave us one :)... More

My special lady friend and I used the Independence Inn as a basecamp between hikes into the Eastern Sierra, culminating with our ascent of Mt. Whitney. We stayed there a total of 7 nights and could not have made a better choice. Innkeeper Jim Getzinger made us feel at home and took excellent care of us. Good comfortable beds, nice... More

We needed a stop between Yosemite and Death Valley and chose Independence. It was only one night and happened to be a Sunday when everything seems to be closed except the petrol stations. In saying that Jim who runs the motel was very friendly and a great host and told us where to get some food. Our motel room was... More

Stopped for one night on our way to Lake Tahoe for a wedding. The grounds were very attractive and well tended with roses and flowers in bloom. While the room and the bed were very comfortable, as a previous reviewer said, this is not a five star hotel, but is much better than what you find in similar small towns.... More
