We booked a night at the Dow so we could relax before climbing Langley. The hotel is very pretty and has a nice lounge area. The room was clean and functional, no complaints. Parking is easy and the staff were very friendly.

Friendly check in, large room (had one on first floor), comfortable beds, very clean, reasonably quiet air conditioner (cooled it down enough I didn't need to run it at night) and a small pool that's open all the time. The lobby and parlor area has lots of western memorabilia to get you ready for the museum just down the street.... More

A surprisingly well appointed motel side with rooms decorated to a good quality, great pool and a good central location in town. We chose motel over the older hotel side as the motel rooms have private a/c, parking can get a little tight but plenty around the hotel. Shame they don't offer breakfast.

The Dow is kinda like Lone Pine: a slice of the past, before Walmart and Taco Bell and Starbucks and Hampton Inns took over the American landscape. Lone Pine and the Dow are both like time capsules, which is what I love them for most. I have been staying at the Dow on every trip since 1997, always in the... More

We have been staying in Dow Villa over the years. We prefer the older side. The pool is very nice and used alot for those hot days. It is right in the middle of town, so you can walk everywhere you want. Full of film making history with John Wayne photos on the walls, vintage furniture in the common room... More

Came to town to hike Mount Whitney. Staff (Ben) was excellent in getting me into a room right away. Needed to get some sleep and this place didn't disappoint. Was in a "premium" room (two queens and a pull out sofa). 1st floor in the 'non-historic' section. Decently clean. Bed "dressing" could use some work- looks a little worn. It's... More

Have been coming here for years and it is a great place! Get an upstairs room for the best views of the Sierra/Whitney. The hotel lobby is cute with all the cowboy memorabilia. Love the oversized rooms with a couch. You can walk to the Lone pine restaurants (Seasons, Alabama Hills) and also enjoy the pool. Love the Dow Villa... More

We frequent Lone Pine as we have relatives here. We ALWAYS stay at the Dow Villa when we come. My wife prefers the historic hotel over the modern " motel" side of the place. If you are looking for the Hilton, move on. If you want a quant clean, friendly local hotel, stay here. Did I mention it is in... More

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.
