It was our 2nd stay in this convienient and historic Motel. It has been a snowy day on the 9th of october when we checked in and the other morning we saw the Mount Whitney in white from our window. A fascinating picture with the Alabama Hills in front. The rooms a big, clean and warm and we got great...

We were on our way to Death Valley and decided to spend the night in Lone Pine. We called Best Western and Comfort Inn, but they were both sold out for the night. The only other listing for a 3 diamond motel was the Dow Villa Motel. We told the clerk we would be there in about an hour and...

Best night's sleep of the trip! Loved this motel, great value for a large comfortable room, huge selection of tv channels and perfect location in town. Go to the film museum while in town, fantastic place and tells you all about the history of lovely lone pine.

Very Nice Rooms For the Price. I wish I had been able to stay longer that the one night I had. The staff was pleasant but failed to notify our group that the meeting location had changed from the lobby (where the staff could see us) to a separate room. The lobby is quite comfortable with a fireplace and TV.

We have stayed here several times on previous trips, it just gets better in this neat hotel facing Mount Whitney. The room was very clean and well decorated, nicely coordinated colors. Furniture was new and very appropriate for today's traveler with the desk and lamp set up for computer or other electronic devices. This is in the new motel, the...

The USA government funding crisis had enforced a change of plan so we booked the Dow Motel in Lone Pine as our Death Valley reservation was cancelled. All I can say is thank you to the Tea Party because otherwise we would not have found Lone Pine and the Dow Villa Motel. We arrived tired and cold (it had rained...

We stayed in one of the motel-type rooms near the pool. The room has been renovated and is attractively furnished. The bed was comfortable. The hotel appeared to be full, and I expected it to be noisy, but we didn't hear other travelers. There is a small movie museum in the lobby, and photos of actors line the halls. Be...

First time I found this place was nearly 30 years ago !! I have been bringing friends and family here ever since and just love this place. Hot tub and pool open 24 hours. So great to sit in the hot tub looking at the Eastern Sierra and Mt Whitney. Right in the center of town, just a few yards...

Spent another night in Lone Pine. A great place to stop when driving up 395, one of the most beautiful drives in the country. The motel is spotless and reasonably priced. The view of the mountains wonderful. We have stayed here often and will return again. Our room had a jucuzzi tub and it's a pretty big step to get...
