Very friendly and clean, does what it says on the tin. Great location for Death Valley and Mammoth Lakes / Yeosemite Park. Good value, comfortable large rooms. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Plenty of free ice essential in summer. We drove up from LAX on day of arrival had a great nights rest, then had a side visit to Stove... More

The pool was in the centre of the carpark - fenced in - the car was parked outside the room door (perfect!), the rooms were pretty clean - a little dated, but nothing unreasonable - exactly what it says on the can. The aircon was very noisy, but we were glad of it! Perfect location just up from the entrance... More

I last stayed at the Dow Villa in 2010. Rooms were remodeled since then, and they did a great job. Motel rooms are clean and modern, and fairly quiet. Park your car directly in front of your room, as you will occasionally hear the parking lot at night. People (like me) get up early here to go hiking, whether it... More

We booked two rooms at the Dow Villa as the hotel I usually stay at was completely booked. We didn't know what to expect. We liked the price and were pleasantly surprised at our pleasant accommodations. The rooms were pleasantly furnished everything was modern and clean. Other family members stayed there and we enjoyed hanging by the pool in the... More

Stayed here 5 years ago and was so happy with our stay that we decided to stay again this year while passing through Lone Pine. They had done some refurbishment since last time and the exterior now is very nice, especially the hotel part. The rooms are more like I remembered from last time, but spacious, clean and god value.... More

I typically stay at Dow Villa on my way to or from the Eastern Sierras. I usually stay in one of the hot tub rooms for a day or two since I won't see a bath for a while. Every stay has been 5 stars. I have always wandered the hotel side to see the history, this year I arrived... More

We stayed for one night en route to Las Vegas. We are a family of five and were given a huge room two double beds and a double sofa/camp bed. Very central, lots of restaurants close by and a good grocery store and laundromat across the road which was very useful. Kids loved the pool and spa pool so it... More

Everything about this place was lovely and charming. We stayed in the John Wayne suite with 1 double bed in the bedroom and a pullout sofa in the living room for $110 + tax. In some places "historic" is a cover for shabby, but the Dow Villa has been very nicely restored and renovated so the rooms are in excellent... More

We stayed at this motel for a night on our way to Death Valley National Park. The hotel is historic but updated. Was very clean, but the air condition did not blow out cool air at all. The guy told us it would be cooler at night, as they turn it up then. Well, that never happened. We slept o.k.... More

Loved the old style of the hotel. Comfortable, inviting lobby with a TV and table and chairs. The room was a mini suite. The temperature was about 100 degrees and the air conditioning did not keep it cool enough. For this reason I only gave it 4 stars. Close to Western Museum, Alabama Hills and excellent food!
