We stayed in Lone Pine for 3 nights. Our family hiked Mt. Whitney and we came up a day early in order to get acclimated to the altitude. I stayed behind during their hikes and so I asked for their upgraded room. My husband and I stayed in room # 50. It was a very large room that held a king size bed on the second floor with a great view of Mt Whitney. It had a whirlpool bathtub, a refrigerator and microwave a very large (50 inch??) television and a large couch and comfortable chair. It was the best choice that I could have made given that I stayed in the room while the others went hiking for most of the day and evening. The staff at the motel is great and very helpful. There were plateful towels and the office had towels for the pool. The main historical hotel had wonderful pictures of John Wayne and all the movies that he made around the Lone Pine area. John Wayne and his crew also stayed at the Dow Villa while they were shooting the films. I usually stay in large new hotels in larger cities and I would recommend the Dow Villa whole heartedly and I would stay there again anytime that I am in the area.
