Been staying here for years. I think we've stayed in almost every room in the place. Rooms are all great, even those in the original hotel, but tonight we are staying in room 32. Don't know how we got this room but it is fabulous. BIG, warm, central heat and air, giant T.V. and next to a top notch cafe....

This place is perfect. Clean, quiet, roomy, comfortable, with a very kind front desk and staff. It is close to good restaurants and to the Darwin Museum etc. I have stayed in both types of rooms and they were both pleasant, clean and comfortable. We even had a Jacuzzi tub in our room. What a value!

Cool little hotel. took us a minute to find our room. Room was definitely old and small but quaint. the sink was in front of the bed and not in the bathroom. We will stay here again but I think we will stay in the newer section which is the motel part. Great location!

I was hesitant about staying in a motel (maybe I've watched too many movies), however this place is great and the rooms were spacious, clean and the heating/ac worked very well! We didn't use any of the facilities as we got here late and it was far too cold to use the pool or jacuzzi but there were great little...

A really sweet, friendly hotel in the centre of Lone Pine. We stopped on our way through from death valley to Yosemite. The staff were very helpful with checking us in and out at odd times, recommending us places for dinner and finding out which roads were open the next morning to drive in the mountains! Allowed us to bring...

I booked this hotel for a business trip in Independence. I arrived between 10:30pm and 11:00pm to check in, however there was no one at the front counter to check me in. I waited 10 minutes or more, called two numbers for the hotel to see if anyone would answer the phone, and finally gave up and went down the...

Stayed for a couple of nights in one of the motel rooms and really enjoyed it. It was cold out, but the heater worked so all was well. Very clean. Nice place to stay if visiting the area. Easy to get in and out with many eating places within walking distance.

Nice place, with some history. Friendly and efficient desk staff. The room was clean, and mostly quiet. Only exception was some early risers (possibly an out of town work crew) yukking it up outside our door at around 6:00AM. Other than that, it was a pleasant stay. Easy walking distance to good restaurants. Recommended.

Came through Lone Pine with a friend and stayed at the Dow Villa. We were in the motel part so cannot speak for the hotel aspect, but our stay there was great. Clean room, comfy beds, very helpful staff who answered all my questions about things to do/see/eat in Lone Pine. The Dow Villa is in a great location, close...
