“Some good, some bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Reasonable price. Very helpful and pleasant front desk staff. The pool was ‘closed’ due to the ‘season’ but it was 90 degrees and March and the website didn’t mention that the pool is closed sometimes. Our room was located back away from road, facing a meadow. It was clean and had a large bathroom. There’s a free-but-not-great-for-vegans-or-vegetarians- or-people-who-want-to-eat-healthy breakfast. One big negative, the painting over the bed depicted an American Indian attacking a white man, very violently! Another painting shows stagecoach with settlers struggling to pass over a mountain. I know it’s supposed to be Film History but to me it was a very negative vibe. Also, not their fault but there was a dog barking in the area behind the hotel the entire night!

After climbing Mt. Whitney, we had a reserved room at the Best Western in Lone Pine. The room was clean and very comfortable. However, the best part of the stay was the excellent service. I accidently left our new tent in the room and didn't realize it until we arrived in Las Vegas. We called the Motel and they offered to send it to us by UPS. I was absolutely thrilled when we got it back. It is a real pleasure to stay at a place where they care and willing to help out. I will definitely go back.

Our group of four stayed here while in town to hike Mt. Whitney. The accommodations and staff were great and this was an excellent choice for a hotel in the area. Also, the hotel has great views of Whitney!

Had a pleasant stay at the Lone Pine Best Western. Slow internet and low water pressure in shower, but other than that it was a nice place to stay. Clean rooms and friendly, knowledgeable staff. Breakfast had numerous choices and were well prepared.

Good base-location to hike Mount Whitney in a day. Close to town center without the added noise. High desert and alpine mountains environments within 30 minutes of each other. Great gateway into the Eastern Sierras. Close to Horseshoe Meadows, Cottonwood Lakes/Pass trails, Mt. Langley and the grand-daddy Mount Whitney!

This is more expensive than the Dow Motel, which is in the center of Lone Pine. You have to drive from the Best Western to get into town to eat or walk around. But that aside, the receptionist was rather surly and snappy. Not keen on answering questions about the area. My room smelled strongly of bleach or chlorine; I had to open the windows and door for a couple of hours to air it out. There were nasty stains on the curtains - possibly grease. And as others have said, the air conditioning unit is very noisy indeed - both yours and your neighbors' on each side of you if they have theirs on. The walls are rather thin - I could hear the neighbors TV quite clearly (when the air conditioner was off!). Beds were comfortable, lots of towels and toiletries provided. Rooms are very spacious indeed. Furniture is attractive wood. Parking is easy, outside each room with plenty of space on each side. I'll try somewhere else next time I stay in Lone Pine.
