“Great value”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

There are only 8 units I think in this small motel a block of the main drag in Lone Pine.
When we stayed they were in the midst of refurbishing rooms. We stayed in #6. It was as good as you can get anywhere. Nice paint job, new tiled floor and walls in bathroom and one of the comfiest beds we have ever slept in. For the price this place cant be beat. But it's an older style motel so don't expect a Marriott, it's a classic motel and a good one at that.
Pity they didn't change the doors when they Did the rebuild.

Room Tip: Book early

I was very satisfied with our stay here. We headed up from San Diego to Lake Tahoe and stopped for a night in Lone Pine so we could visit Manzanar in the morning. Lone Pine is just 9 miles south of Manzanar.
Our experience with the hotel was pleasant. The rooms are a decent size, and the beds are large and comfy. There is a refrigerator and coffee maker in the room, and ice around the corner. It was clean and the owner was very nice and accommodating.
It is right off of the main street so it is easy to find, and there are many restaurants and markets to walk to, but you do not hear 395 traffic. We will totally stay here again.

We stayed at the Timberline Motel this week and were pleasantly surprised. The king size bed was comfortable, the sheets had a nice design and were very nice feeling, the pillows were great too. There was a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker in the room. Bring your own coffee. We will stay here again. Located on E Post it is away from traffic and quiet.

My son and I stayed at this motel onenight in mid-October 2012. The Timberline is a small (8 rooms), older motel (I would guess circa 60's), which has been renovated. Each of our rooms were clean, the beds comfortable and very quiet, although on the smaller side. The owners were friendly and accomodating. My son and I both felt that this was a good place to stay and reasonably priced for the area (at least $40 less expensive than any of the 4-5 other motels we priced in the area for the same time period). Would definitely stay at the Timberline again.

We stayed 1 night in September on our way through the Death Valley and to Las Vegas. Clean, adequate, good location for what we needed. Friendly owners. Called when we were running late on the road to check in. Worried about where we were. Small motel - only 8 rooms. Looks like it is family run. Rather expensive considering the location - but not many alternatives. However, again the room was clean and the beds comfortable. Adequate for what we needed.

What's great about this motel was that it wasn't on the main drag of town. Sure the town is small and adorable quaint so you would expect it to be pretty quiet. Fact is, the main street is the through freeway to get to Mammoth and other spots so huge trucks drive through fairly regularly. Since we were getting up at midnight to day hike Mt. Whitney, staying at a hotel away from the noise was great. The place has 8 rooms, basic and very clean. It's got good energy and overall great for what we needed. It's a 2-5 minute walk to just about everywhere in town.

Room Tip: the A/C was a bit noisy depending on the settings so if set higher, it won't go on and off.

This hotel has everything one could wish for: it's extremely clean, quiet, central (one block away from the main road, yet close to everything), reasonably priced, confortable, good AC, fridge, microwave, coffee and wifi. To top it off it is family run and they do a good job helping travelers to figure out what to do next. It would definetly be my first pick if I do ever come back around this region later.

Room Tip: Any, they seem to be all good.
