Left some items behind, not a problem, the owner Jim sent them to me ASAP. I think he threw me off when in the morning before the final room search he drew me in to the office for fresh coffee cake and Java. Nice place to spend a night.

The Independence Inn is a small charming roadside hotel. I normally stay in Best Westerns, Hamptons, & Holiday Inn Expresses so I would normally not even consider this hotel. It was great!!!! Very clean. You can park right in front of your room. The owner was very hospitable. We were going on a hike and the owner offered to keep...

The Independence Inn is definitely the home away from home. Jim (the owner) treated us like family. The Inn is very clean and he takes alot of pride in the property and it shows! He took great care of my husband and I as we were mending from the trail. He went out of his way to help us in...

Independence was a much needed resupply spot for the wife and I as we made our way North on the Pacific Crest Trail. Looking for a place to relax for a couple of days before returning to the trail we stumbled across the Independence Inn. Our host Jim Getzinger was the best and went out of his way to make...

My wife and I often travel to Independence and stay for 2-3 days to hike in the mountains and also to take walks in the Owens Valley. We value sitting out on the porch, drinking coffee, and looking at the Sierra views. This motel has the best porch views in Independence, the best "coffee spot." It also has great walks...

Came into Independence from the PCT and found the Courthouse Motel less than inviting. Called Jim of the Independence Inn Motel and I couldn't be happier. He was very inviting and an outstanding host. Fresh homemade bread, coffee cake, and coffee this morning truly hit the spot. Also the view of the Sierra Nevada from the stoop is outstanding. Staying...

Beautiful setting. Jim, the owner, couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. He had installed a NEMA 14-50 plug for Tesla charging. He requested a very reasonable fee for the use of his power. Great place to stay to visit Death Valley or Mono Lake.

My family stays here every few months. Jim maintains a very nice place and he is friendly and accommodating! The rooms are clean and comfortable! We wouldn't stay anyplace else. If you are passing through or staging here for hiking or sight seeing this is your place.

This is our 3rd stay here at this quaint road side motel. Beautiful view of the Sierra's from your porch! The rooms are clean and Jim (owner/manager) is there to see that you feel right at home. The rooms have TV, heat, A/C, fridge, coffee and plenty of towels and blankets. Perfect place as a base for hiking and camping...

I booked this hotel on the merits of trip advisor and so I feel a certain obligation to write about our stay. On arriving to the motel it was clear to us that it was located in an area with little or no services, the town it's in may as well not be there. There is a shell garage which...
