We are hardy travelers, fine with the most basic and cheap accommodations. But, oh my goodness, the Lone Pine fails to meet our lowest standards.

The lighting was so poor it was hard to tell if our room was clean or not. We did awaken without any apparent infection or insect infestation--surprisingly. The property is in extremely poor condition: holes in the walls, door knobs sagging in their fittings, burn holes in the bedspread in our non-smoking room. The walkways of the property are littered with broken down cabinets, old furniture, and fixtures that seem to have been yanked from the walls of guest rooms. Some those discarded items actually looked better than what we encountered in our room.

The bathroom was amazing. The shower was so small that anyone over 6 foot tall or more than 160 pounds could not have squeezed in. There was no electrical outlet in the bathroom. A bar light over the sink had just two working bulbs. The bath mat was a sheet of paper that wouldn't have absorbed three ounces of water, so stepping out of the phone booth-sized shower onto the uneven tile floor was a safety hazard of epic proportion. I have Kleenex bigger than the ragged towels provided.

Most appalling was the price of the place: $65 + tax, for a total of $72. We've ben traveling for a month and have enjoyed many basic, clean, well-cared-for rooms for that price. Had it been $30 it would still have been grossly overpriced.

Clearly the motel owner does not respect his property or his guests and he does not deserve your money.

Room Tip: Don't even think about it!

We arrived in the dark and hadn't had a look at the room - ,mistake!
It was run down and the owner didn't seem to care about reparing the broken furniture or even renovating the room.
But there was a new TV and fridge and the WIFI was for free. Nevertheless the room was not very comfortable because the bed was old and worn. The furniture looked like bulky waste and the bathroom was as charming as an old gym shower.

I wish I could say the motel was as nice as the owner and his wife. Bed was fine. Woke up the next morning to find a beer bottle beside one of our beds which wasn't ours. This makes me question how well the room is cleaned. The shower was very small and the shower would all of a sudden get extremely hot while you were in it. The door was very loose and the deadbolt very stiff. My husband used the pool briefly which was clean, just very cold but then again it is September.

Very good value. Older hotel. Very nice and helpful owner/manager. Unless you're expecting a 4 star hotel you'll be happy here. And I can't emphasize how nice and accommodating the owner was to me and my son.

We've seen quite some motels on our travels in de western US, either budgetmotels or higher ranked motels. But this one really hit rock bottom! Everything that could be messed up, was messed up. The bedlinens had undefinable stains and burnholes in them. There were even stains on the wall above the headrest.The shower was unhygienic and had no hot water (hello legionella!). When we opened the fridge, the entire room smelled like a wet dog's corpse had been lying there for a few weeks. The fire alarm didn't work, which makes sense if the batteryholder is hanging out with no battery present. The telephone did not work properly. The smell of weed was present on the premise, as were the shady people involved with these stuffs. Manager not present at the front desk at night. We didn't use the pool, because a thin film of shiny filth was floating on top... image the skinproblems one could get!

Price for a night was 75$... we've slept in motels of 40$ that were way better than this hellhole.

In our country (Netherlands), facilities like this one would've been shut down by health inspections years ago.

Bottomline: Do NOT stay here, unless a gun is pointed to your head!
