All the basic needs are met by this affordable property run by the owners of the Mobile Station next door. In fact you check in at the Station's register. Ask for a room in the back wing farthest from the highway.

We stayed here for one night during our trip to Death Valley. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They offer a good service. The room was big with a kitchen, a sitting place, a salon, two bedrooms and one bathroom. We had a good bed and the sheets were clean. The towels and bathroom were also clean, but there... More

This is my second review of this motel. We were here at the same time last year in September of 2014, and we thought we would come up again to visit the ancient bristlecone pine forest and show it to our visitor from England. So we booked two rooms. I'm sorry to say I am totally embarrassed that we took... More

Nothing special but the room was clean and neat. The air conditioner was very loud as it is a wall unit and the room is small. There are not many choices in this area so this worked for us. The nearby restaurant/bar was surprisingly good.

Most people stop in Bishop, we decided to stay in Big Pine. The Motel offers good value for money. The room is big, the bed is comfortable and the room is clean. Bath room was pretty big. The staff is friendly and eating facilities are nearby in walking distance. So all you need for a motel stay on your drive... More

Pros: Good location mid-way along highway 395 - not a whole lot in Big Pine but Lone Pine, Bishop, Mammoth Lakes and all the awesome surrounding mountains are easily reached. The room was clean, bed was very comfortable! WiFi fairly reliable. Checking in at gas station was a little odd but actually kinda useful to pick up stuff you need.... More

Pretty basic hotel, clean, good a/c. Had a mini fridge and microwave in room to suit our needs. Sandwiched in between a laundromat and a gas station and mini grocery store with quite an inventory. Convienient location for hiking if not wanting to camp or need a break from it. Not many choices in this small town but fit the... More

We camp a lot and always use the Bristlecone as a jumping off place for further visits to remote areas. Love it there! Would recommend to family, friends and those wanting good value and clean and quality accommodations
