This is an update on our annual base camp for the Lone Pine Film Festival, held each October. We always stay here because of the convenient location at the southern edge of town, across the street from the film museum and high school movie screening venue. This year, long time owner Ish was out of town but had a nice... More

Actually, maybe a bit above average, as it was clean and I have no complaints except we saw that it had a gas grill at the little pool, and had bought some nice steaks, but it turned out that the grill didn't work, so we had to grill them after the 4-hour drive home a couple of days later. Everything... More

We just pulled up and found this one which was cheapest! The room was clean. Fridge and microwave in the room. Right in the centre. Restaurants and pubs near by. Little pool here too. And parking. I'd stay here again.

We stayed here at the last minute the week before July 4th and perhaps that was why we paid a lot. It was hot when we went in the room as the air had not been on, the A/C was small and it took a good while to cool down. Might be worth the electricity in the summer to turn... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Trails Motel. We stayed two days. The staff was cordial, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. What more could you want? Well breakfast would have been nice! We walked to McDonalds. We were placed in a newly renovated "handicap" room, which had a wonderful HUGE shower stall. It had no threshold... More

My husband and I decided to go to Death Valley on a last minute trip, and The Trails hotel was one of the few that had rooms left. It was clean, the staff was friendly, and it was super quiet! We got a great night's sleep too. I would definitely recommend.

I stayed here for a night on my way from Death Valley to Yosemite. It was comfortable and clean but basic with slightly outdated decor. It is on the main road, so easy to find. I would recommend it for a night's stay. Free wifi is definitely a bonus.

Unlike what some reviewers experienced, we had absolutely NO problem with bugs. This motel is old, but the rooms were spacious, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and heater worked fine, and the staff was friendly.

We stayed here for just one night after driving from Vegas. Although basic it provided everything we needed. The shower was good, fridge, tea and coffee maker provided and parking right outside the door. On all these counts it beats our 5* vegas hotel which for some reasons seems to be proud of the fact they dont give you even... More
