To be honest we used this place recently as a staging post between Death Valley and Yosemite; it is placed very strategically between the two to split that journey. There is however a bit more to the place. The motel itself is unassuming on the southern edge of the town of Independence. There is a car park immediately in front... More

Our group stayed here while on church business. Beautiful view of the Sierra's! The rooms were very clean and well maintained, the check-in/check-out efficient. The morning coffee was good; the homemade coffee cake was yummy! The owner does a great job!

We stayed here for a night after our visit to the Death Valley. The place was very clean and nice and the bed was comfortable. In the morning we had a nice small breakfast with fresh cake and enjoyed the view on the mountains.

Left some items behind, not a problem, the owner Jim sent them to me ASAP. I think he threw me off when in the morning before the final room search he drew me in to the office for fresh coffee cake and Java. Nice place to spend a night.

The Independence Inn is a small charming roadside hotel. I normally stay in Best Westerns, Hamptons, & Holiday Inn Expresses so I would normally not even consider this hotel. It was great!!!! Very clean. You can park right in front of your room. The owner was very hospitable. We were going on a hike and the owner offered to keep... More

The Independence Inn is definitely the home away from home. Jim (the owner) treated us like family. The Inn is very clean and he takes alot of pride in the property and it shows! He took great care of my husband and I as we were mending from the trail. He went out of his way to help us in... More

Independence was a much needed resupply spot for the wife and I as we made our way North on the Pacific Crest Trail. Looking for a place to relax for a couple of days before returning to the trail we stumbled across the Independence Inn. Our host Jim Getzinger was the best and went out of his way to make... More

My wife and I often travel to Independence and stay for 2-3 days to hike in the mountains and also to take walks in the Owens Valley. We value sitting out on the porch, drinking coffee, and looking at the Sierra views. This motel has the best porch views in Independence, the best "coffee spot." It also has great walks... More

Came into Independence from the PCT and found the Courthouse Motel less than inviting. Called Jim of the Independence Inn Motel and I couldn't be happier. He was very inviting and an outstanding host. Fresh homemade bread, coffee cake, and coffee this morning truly hit the spot. Also the view of the Sierra Nevada from the stoop is outstanding. Staying... More

Beautiful setting. Jim, the owner, couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. He had installed a NEMA 14-50 plug for Tesla charging. He requested a very reasonable fee for the use of his power. Great place to stay to visit Death Valley or Mono Lake.
