Lone Pine acted as a great stopover on our way to Yosemite. We stayed in the hotel building and were satisfied with our room which was clean and the staff were very friendly. We did suffer 2 power cuts and sat in the dark for a while but it added to the experience! We made use of the laundromat across... More

Hotel clean, comfortable and very pleasant for a one night stay. We were in the motel part of the hotel. Pool was clean and empty. Coffee in the room was a lovely addition. Only downside was some of the cable channels needed an extra charge to view them which was frustrating. We could have easily stayed longer.

The place was full so only choice was to stay at the Historic not rated AAA Dow Villa Hotel. Perfect for youth who are used to stay in hostels. The place needs serious updating. Doors do not close well, bathroom doors either. It was an adjoined room for which the door separating the other room from the bathroom was seriously... More

Stayed here 3 nights and have no complaints about this place. It was a great stay! Started off with friendly staff who welcomed us. And our last night we were at the pool watching the sun set behind Mt.Whitney while chatting with travelers from all over the place even the UK. Didn't want to leave this place. For sure coming...

We were spending a long weekend traveling up and down the 395 and we decided to spend our last night in Lone Pine. The hotel itself is very cute and quaint - in the downstairs lobby/waiting area has a large screen TV with couches and comfy chairs; and the walls are lined with old western photos, especially of John Wayne,...

This is a typical roadside motel in a small town. It's clean, has good a/c (a must in these parts!), and has a responsive, nice staff. It has two parts--an old (from 1920's) hotel, and a connected motor hotel, a/k/a motel. The former has a convivial lobby where tired hikers enjoy books and games in a relaxing atmosphere. This is...

While traveling the states we stayed over 1 night at Dow Villa in June. We had a fab stay everybody at the hotel & in the small town were very friendly. The 24 hour pool/hot tub was great as not really much else to do in the town. We loved the history of the Dow Villa & would recommend a... More

We stayed at this hotel on the recommendation of this article. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g28926-c182361/California:United-States:Las.Vegas.To.Yosemite.National.Park.html It was a quaint town at the bottom of Mt. Whitney. You could sit on the front porch of the hotel and watch the sun go down. A neat old hotel. The only drawback was that our room was next to a courtyard. We opened the window and... More

We booked this motel at the last minute during a US roadtrip through Death Valley and towards Yosemite on the 395. Lone Pine is a gem of a town with some great stores and plenty to do and see for a family. The Dow was recommended to us by a lovely chap at Lone Pine Airport and check-in was swift... More

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
