I headed here because I wanted to see the courthouse where Charles Manson and Family were processed after their arrest at Barker Ranch in Death Valley -- and also because Independence is a charming, beautiful small town nestled in the Eastern Sierras. The Courthouse Motel is a waypoint for some hikers doing the PCT because they offer transportation back up...

Just spent my 3rd night here and Im sure I will be back again. Everything is very well taken care of and very clean. The owners will even give rides to the trail head if you are a hiker....They have also just added a great bunkhouse for hikers. Great bunks and hooks for hanging your pack.. room 12 has amazing...

We found this cute little motel right across the street from the Independence Courthouse. We called at 11:30 at night and Andrew told us he had one room left! We arrived 40 minutes later and we got excellent service from Andrew. Very polite and friendly :). Our room was clean and comfortable. Nice TV, microwave, coffee in the room and...

I found the Independence CourtHouse Motel to be clean, very friendly, and it was very Convenient for me. The staff was familiar with the area and could refer me to many places to hike and take pictures. For the value and hospitality, I would definitely stay there again.

Clean, comfortable, safe, and quiet but 2 of the pillows had that thrift store smell. I had room closest to street but noise level was fine. Walked short distance and Got dinner from Mexican food truck nearby ... very good. There were also a couple cafes within walking distance.

We stayed at this motel for one night and were pleasantly surprised. The owner was friendly and gave ideas on local areas of interest. The room was clean and had more facilities than we expected! The only slight downside is that the dining options in this small town is very limited and we ended up with a SUBWAY. Would recommend...

The two of us were lucky, most motels along HWY 395 are still full in September from summer travelers. We got a room with a dubble and two twin beds for $125. The room was clean with matchimg comforters and pellowcases. The room had a flat screen, WiFi, a refrigerator and microwave and and a bench outside the door from...

I highly recommend this place if you're looking for a place to crash that's by Mt. Whitney. My friend and I stayed for 3 nights while attempting to tackle Whitney on the 2nd day. It worked out perfectly and the owners were so helpful and friendly. The rooms are small but come with a fridge and microwave as well as...

We stayed here on an over-nighter, on our way to Mammoth Lakes. The owner was kind enough to wait until we arrived (after 10 pm) and had the room ready to go when we got there. The motel is easy to find, especially if you look across from the courthouse. The motel is clean, but small. Everything is small... the...

We stayed here on our way from Vegas to Yosemite National Park. Staff is very friendly, but forgot to turn on AC prior or arrival. The very loud AC took three hours to cool the very small room down to sleeping temperature. Bed was not comfortable at all and too small for two adults. Bathroom has seen better days.
