We love this hotel. Always try to stay here if we are travelling via Lone Pine. The atmosphere is great, the staff always welcoming and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable. We didn't travel with the dogs this time, but it's nice to know they are welcome here.

Pet friendly, great location-right in the middle of town, so easy to walk to dinner and shopping. Rooms are clean, staff is super friendly. We don't stay anywhere else. Great views of the mountains, perfect stop on our road trips!

That really depends on what you are interested in lodging wise. One area is more modernized while the other really has that cowboy charm. Both sides are well maintained. The Dow Villa Motel is three diamond AAA rated and has all of the AAA amenities. This amenities include a coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave, free WiFi, and personal climate control. Lodging in the Dow Historic Hotel is based on the 1930's style and amenities are more lobby based. You have access to coffee, a microwave, refrigerator, and WiFi, but they are all accessed through the lobby or from the front desk staff. The heating and cooling are central units controlled by the front desk. Their is no individualized thermostat in the room. What it really boils down to is, who is Baconbutt, and what makes a stay great for him/her?
