This was recommended by a friend, and Im very happy to say he was right. Friendly helpful staff, a nice clean well appointed room, in the centre of a sincerely charming small town! Reception answered all of my silly tourist questions, and gave good advise!

A long faceless 110 mile drive coming north out of Mojave but worth it. Visited Lone Pine to drive the fabled Alabama Hills and Whitney Portal in concert with a stop at the Film History Museum in town. Dow Villa has an adjacent motel, but the hotel was perfect for the solo traveler. I decided to stay an extra day... More

The Dow Villa Hotel is clean and has everything you need--good beds, fridge, microwave, cable, tub. View is of the Eastern Sierras, and you can walk to all the restaurants, bars and stores from the motel. This is a great base to explore the Eastern Sierras. The Alabama Hills and the Mount Whitney Portal are just outside the town. The... More

I can't count how many times we have stayed at the Dow Villa Hotel. (The motel looks very nice, but we can't resist the charm (and the value!) of the hotel. You can almost hear the boots clanking down the hallway - the spurs ringing - as actors come in from a day's shooting films out in the Alabama Hills.... More

We were just passing through town. We booked last minute on a Saturday and all they had was a downstairs double queen room. The beds were comfortable and the linens were nice and fairly new. Each bed had 4 comfortable pillows. Would definitely stay here again.
