Staff are always friendly and accommodating! Great view of Mount Whitney. The dog friendly rooms were very clean and no extra fee was attached. Our Golden Retriver had a great time running around in the open field next to the motel. We will definitely be back!

We stayed at the Best Western Frontier motel in Lone Pine while on a last-minute weekend getaway up 395 "Mother Road". Lone Pine is a great place to stay in the eastern Sierras, and is at the foot of Mt. Whitney. Everyone knows it as the place where you start on your Whitney ascent. The motel is very clean, staff...

We have been staying here on our trips to the Eastern Sierras for over 30 years now, so we obviously like this motel. We have seen it undergo several remodels, and it seems to always be up-to-date. The hot breakfast buffet is always good, the staff is nice, and the view of the Alabama Hills and Sierras in the morning...

A strange place to start a hotel review: good free breakfast, and the highlight was sitting and looking out the window. Nice ambiance with the western movie star show bills all over the walls, a nod to the nearby Alabama Hills where so many of those old movies were filmed. The breakfast itself was average to above average for this...

Our room was quiet, clean, comfy and huge! It even had a private back porch with table and chairs complete with a view of the mountains. It's single level so no dragging luggage up flights of stairs and parking spot was numbered with your room number. Great breakfast with tons of things to choose from. We were on a week...

This place is a very nice accommodation for a small place like Lone Pine. The most remarkable was the breakfast. It was served in a nice room, walls lined with old movie pictures from the town's movie making days. The food itself was great with cooked protein and pancakes, etc. it is also very clean.

The motel is located just off US Hwy 395 and facing East side of Sierra Nevada range; The view fantastic and amazing; room was very clean, very well appointed, very good linen, mini fridge, mico and everything super nice....

This is a great hotel in a decent location for Death Valley, Mount Whitney and other surrounding points of interest. The room was clean and everything was in pretty good condition. Bonus to see a microwave and fridge. No safe though, which meant I carried valuables in the car when traveling; bit of a pain. Wifi was fast and free....

wonderful pet friendly hotel. very clean and updated rooms. Breakfast was great, love making my own pancakes (well the machine did). If you have ever driven 395 on the eastern slope of the Sierras you know what an amazing view the Alabama Hills are and this hotel has the perfect spot to watch the sunrise/sunset.

An excellent choice for a motel. All single level and all assigned large parking spaces. Breakfast starting at 5:00am is a huge benefit for getting an early start on a hike, climb or traveling. Staff is very attentive and always with a smile. Beds are very comfortable as well.
