Room faced 395, traffic noise most of night. King size bed had probably a twin/full blanket. Really? at the price of the room they can't put proper size blanket on bed. Blanket looked like the ones you see for sale on the side of the road. When we checked there was no mention of the "free WiFi". Bathroom towels were... More

I had read a lot about this motel; how it was old, tatty, and not up to scratch. I expected little also becasue of the price. This was probably one of our best stays in the US. The wifi worked. The air con was brilliant and it was comfortable and clean. lets face you wouldn't be staying in Lone Pine... More

On the positive side, this hotel was within easy walking distance of restaurants and shops in Lone Pine. The front desk staff were very pleasant. The room was clean but could use an update. I thought the room was a bit overpriced, but a couple of other hotels that we tried had no vacancies.

Nothing special about this motel. Rooms were clean, bed OK. Spent one night on Labor Day weekend so seemed overpriced, but that was the market rate. Room was in the annex off of the highway so was quiet. Slept fine.

I had just finished hiking the John Muir Trail and needed a place to stay in the pinch. This was the only motel in town with a vacancy. Under ordinary circumstances, I could muster an "average" rating but I have stayed at far better accommodations for ~ $150 a night. The rooms have a tired, barebones, circa 1970s feel to... More

I reviewed this motel a couple of years ago and have stayed there several times since then, including two separate occasions on my last trip to Death Valley, in June and July 2015. It's probably time for an update, and also some responses to other reviewers' comments. In June and July, I stayed in two different rooms in the front... More

My room was in the Annex behind the main hotel building. There were large pickups with construction gear parked outside the rooms and I could barely park between them. The room was clean but the furniture old and tired. The bypass valve on the shower didn't work very well and more water came out of the spout than the shower... More

I could think of a lot better ways to spend $134.40 for a hotel room with shredded washcloths and towels (they could go to Sam's Club and buy enough for the whole motel for about $200.) We requested accessible, what we got was a high toilet with a non-functioning Jacuzzi bathtub about 24" high with no hand rails and the... More

All I can say is stay here if you need to. I certainly wouldn't plan a trip to the area and want to stay at this place. When we flush the toilet it sounds a lot like a faint siren for a fire engine somehow or another. They forgot to put any toilet paper in the room. The bath tub... More

Stayed here at the annex in August for one night. Clean, decent bed, kinda pricey for what you get. Was sufficient for what we needed. Did not use the pool, but it looked clean and inviting. Walked to a restaurant in the area, and there is a grocery store within walking distance.
