Like others, we stayed in this hotel because it was the only one available. Room size was okay but the rest horrible for the price we paid (which is the price of a 3 star hotel apx). Only stay here if necessary

I stayed here recently on my way home from a trip to Lake Tahoe. I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the room. It was much nicer than the place I stayed in on my way up to Lake Tahoe, and about $30 less to boot. The staff was friendly, checked me in quickly, and even gave me an... More

We were coming from Death Valley and heading to Yosemite. So we decided to spend one night in Lone Pine. There was no other hotel available so we had to stay here for one night. Beds are horrible. Carpet is dirty. Room looks so old. I understood that this is a "budget" inn, but we paid Holiday inn price. I... More

Stayed here one night, it seemed ok...not great but cheap and cheerful. Issues started in the night with insect bites and then in the next hotel (next one was a 5 Star in Vegas) found some dead fleas in the luggage which were not there before and a couple of extra bite marks.

Even though it was a small space, everything you could possibly need was in the room. The clerk recommended a several restaurants from which we could choose. It was clean and accessible. Best of all, it was very quiet.

First of all Lone Pine is a small town, in England a small village. You stop over when on the way to somewhere else! But it is delightfully friendly little town. And the Dow continues that friendly relaxed feel. Don't expect luxury. It was the cheapest room on our 35 day road trip. It wasn't overly smart - but it... More

Pros: Very nice motel in a convenient location. Just a few mins walk to all the attractions of Lone Pine, 2 blocks from Whitney Portal Road for hiking access to Mt Whitney. The guy who checked me in was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet - looked like the bathroom recently had new fixtures. WiFi... More

This small motel is much better than it is given credit for, the hosts were extremely friendly and welcoming & the room decent too. Yes there are some things that could do with improving, but when we mentioned our toilet not flushing properly, the proprietor came immediately to fix it which was great & they were very apologetic. The location... More

We visited the Lone Pine Budget Inn during our road trip. Kay at check in was very friendly and helpful. The Inn itself is simple and inexpensive. A good place for a one night stay. The room was clean, the ac fantastic and the free internet worked. Not for those looking for a posh experience but a simple, clean, motel... More

The health department needs to close this place down. The room we had had 5 beds in it including one in the closet. Three of the beds had already been slept in and full of pubic hairs. It was just my husband and myself and no other rooms in town we're available. They charged us $160.00. And then they refused... More
