“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Our group of four stayed here while in town to hike Mt. Whitney. The accommodations and staff were great and this was an excellent choice for a hotel in the area. Also, the hotel has great views of Whitney!

Had a pleasant stay at the Lone Pine Best Western. Slow internet and low water pressure in shower, but other than that it was a nice place to stay. Clean rooms and friendly, knowledgeable staff. Breakfast had numerous choices and were well prepared.

Good base-location to hike Mount Whitney in a day. Close to town center without the added noise. High desert and alpine mountains environments within 30 minutes of each other. Great gateway into the Eastern Sierras. Close to Horseshoe Meadows, Cottonwood Lakes/Pass trails, Mt. Langley and the grand-daddy Mount Whitney!

This is more expensive than the Dow Motel, which is in the center of Lone Pine. You have to drive from the Best Western to get into town to eat or walk around. But that aside, the receptionist was rather surly and snappy. Not keen on answering questions about the area. My room smelled strongly of bleach or chlorine; I had to open the windows and door for a couple of hours to air it out. There were nasty stains on the curtains - possibly grease. And as others have said, the air conditioning unit is very noisy indeed - both yours and your neighbors' on each side of you if they have theirs on. The walls are rather thin - I could hear the neighbors TV quite clearly (when the air conditioner was off!). Beds were comfortable, lots of towels and toiletries provided. Rooms are very spacious indeed. Furniture is attractive wood. Parking is easy, outside each room with plenty of space on each side. I'll try somewhere else next time I stay in Lone Pine.

Convenient for Mt Whitney. Room comfortable but the aircom unbelievably noisy which is a bit tough for a very hot night. Breakfast is OK but a bit of a scrum perhaps because everyone staying seemed to turn up at the same time.

Very nice motel, spacious, clean and fully equipped rooms. A hearty breakfast is included and is served from 5 in the morning, which is very suitable for those who want to go hiking in the mountains. There is an outdoor swimming pool, which makes the stay very pleasant, especially after a busy day in the Sierra Nevada or in a hot Dead Valley. The town of Lone Pine is the starting point for mountain hikes in the picturesque Sierra Nevada and even on top of Mt. Whitney, the tallest peak in the lower 48 states of the USA.
