The outside is good looking, the lobby cosy and "historical", but the room in the hotel-section was tiny, there was no air conditioning (94F outside), no fridge, no coffee-machine, the toilet didn't flush properly, the WiFi didn't work most of the time, the staff was definitely uninterested and there was no room to open the suitcases unless the doorway was...

This hotel was fine. It's historic and as such, the rooms were small. The sink was in the room and the toilet and shower were in an ensuite. There was no breakfast - just coffee and tea in the office in the morning. It was quiet and clean and a place to stay. I would stay there again. The service...

We are so glad we chose this motel.Our room was spotless and very nicely decorated. The bed was super comfy!! Our room had a jetted tub that was just wonderful and felt so good. The staff was helpful and cheerful~all this means is that we will stay here again!!

The Dow Villa Motel is the best of the 3 places I've stayed at in Lone Pine. It's not lavish--it's simple, but clean and well maintained. Desk staff are efficient and pleasant. There is ample parking.

We arrived to be met by very helpful staff who quickly upgraded us from hotel to motel when we realised that we needed a fridge. The room was spacious and pleasant, fulfilling our basic needs. We would have preferred crockery cups to paper cups for tea/coffee. We're getting used to boiling water in the microwave since electric jugs seem to...

Probably the best place to stay in Lone Pine, right off of 395, with a nice pool, and walking distance to other attractions and dining. Quiet, well managed, and friendly. The rooms are comfortable, with great cable, and free wifi. I would stay here again anytime.

We arrived late in the day and the only rooms available were in the old historic section. Cheap at $70 with a shared toilet and shower in the hall. Only after we'd checked in did we realise there was only one shower and two toilets for about 20 rooms. Not ideal and we would not stay again. The room was...

The Dow motel is a pleasant place to stay. We loved Death Valley, Alabama hills and MT. Whitney area. Great weather and beautiful area. Excellent area for hiking and exploring. We didn't have very good luck with food at Lone Pine.

On our way from Boise, ID to Peoria, AZ, we drove down through the Owen's River valley. Dow Villa graciously accommodated our Havanese puppy, and provided an excellent room. Although it is located directly on the highway in town, our unit (24) was not affected by any noise. Comfortable bed, good shower, and TV worked fine. Amply-sized parking spots were...
