We stayed here on our way from Vegas to Yosemite National Park. Staff is very friendly, but forgot to turn on AC prior or arrival. The very loud AC took three hours to cool the very small room down to sleeping temperature. Bed was not comfortable at all and too small for two adults. Bathroom has seen better days.

I am an RN staying here for 13 weeks per contract. This is my 2nd stay with this establishment. The family is so incredibly giving of their time and resources it is hard to believe such people exist anymore. Julie and Ed know everyone in town and have answers for most everything.

Very good location near EP. Excellent staff. Early checkin might be possible. The room and narrow corridor needs refreshing. Extra poor to none wifi and mobile 3G coverage in the room! - might be annoying for tourists and a dealbreaker for business customers

I spend most of my time in Lone Pine and Bishop but every once in a while I use Independence as my base. I had never stayed at the Courthouse Motel before and was pleasantly surprised. What really sets this place apart are the owners who are very friendly and welcoming. The motel was also recently remodeled, so everything is...

Independence is a very small town but the Courthouse motel is just what you would expect. Very friendly and nice people. Julie checked me in and Greeting me by name and seemed truly happy to have me stay. The room was clean and small but the price is very reasonable. The soda machine would not take my money but there...

Stayed here for 2days and was very pleasantly surprised with the comfort and clean rooms. Owners are very friendly and accommodate you with all needs with extra coffee and nice soft towels. A must stay here and will return again.

The motel recently remodeled their rooms. Although the rooms are a bit small the place was very clean and the furniture up-to-date including flat screen TV's. The lounge benches just outside your door was a nice touch. I would go back there again.

Older place with attendant issues, but clean, comfortable and functional. Easy access to the various towns and sites of the Owens Valley and Eastern Sierra. Julie is great and exceptionally helpful. We will likely stay there again.

Stayed here by chance when driving through Independence. Checked in late and owners were really friendly and accomodating who were very forthcoming when I asked for directions the next morning. The room was really clean and comfortable. Great value too. Location is good, with the motel just off the main highway. Great place enroute to Death Valley as it only...

Although an older motel, with absolutely no frills, our stay was very comfortable. I can't speak highly enough about the owner, Julie. This was definitely the most an owner, manager or employee of any hotel I've ever stayed in, has ever cared about my business. Not only were she & her family kind, they went out of their way to...
