We stayed for one night on the way to Death Valley, Wwe stayed in the hotel which was very basic but at least we had a bathroom and toilet in the room some of them did not. The room itself was clean and the beds were confortable. I would stay again but would try to book the motel side. The lobby was really interesting with all the cowboy film memoriblia my other half loved it being a cowboy fan.

The hotel itself is nice enough and a good base for activities in the area. However, call to book, do not use their web system; I booked a room and had to modify it when our Whitney permits came through but their system kept the old booking and they charged me a no-show fee. Sucks

Unlike the more modern hotels in Lone Pine, the Dow Villa is downtown and virtually adjacent to several excellent restaurants. I was part of a large group - about 15 rooms. The check-in staff handled all of us in minutes - some of the best I've seen. Rooms were very nice. Quietest rooms are in the back. There is not enough room in the front parking lot for all guests but there is an extra parking lot in the rear.

Room Tip: Rear has less road noise

Stayed one night after a drive through Death Valley. The check in was very brief and we were handed two loose keys by a rather robotic gentleman with a beard and moustache. Apart from taking ID and a credit card, he gave us no information whatsoever on hotel facilities or locations. When we asked later about the pool etc we just got brief one word answers. In fact we only noticed coffee available in the corner of the lounge when we left the following day!!
Our room was very old fashioned and basic and the hotel has a very western theme linked to nearby cowboy film locations.
We had an evening meal in the nearby Seasons restaurant and that was very enjoyable. Breakfast was taken in the Grill Bar next to the hotel. Staff there were very friendly and efficient, especially Jill (from the Grill)
Lone Pine is a quaint little town and ideal for a night's stop. More information on checking in would improve the experience at the Dow.

We stayed in the old part of the hotel on the way to Yosemite NP. Clean and Quirky hotel with lovely features and historical artifacts. Loved the sign if you feel too hot open the window lol. If you want coffee machine and modern feel stay in the motel part.
