I went to the Dow Villa with 40 other car friends. We were treated well and management was very accommodating with having a taco truck on their property. Most of the group stayed in the motel, but my husband wanted close to the internet and we were fortunate to stay in the Roy Rogers room. We were very comfortable, the...

There for two nights early in our trip and one night on the return at the end of the week. Comfortable, not expensive, stayed in hotel building, not motel section. There are two considerations for me, Coffee in early am, which they have and a beer/wine in evening. No bar in Dow, so went out for a beer/wine. Don't go...

There are not many options in Lone Pine, California. Of the most convenient motels in town, the Dow Villa is probably the best; but that is not an endorsement. It appears to me that the management relies on the fact that the Dow Villa has little acceptable competition in town, because the Dow Villa is certainly not customer-service oriented. I...

This was the first day of a 1600 mile road trip starting at Las Vegas. We drove through Death Valley and when we finally arrived at Dow Villa and Lone Pine we were amazed. It was a tiny place in the middle of the desert but it had so much charisma we loved it. Lone Pine itself has a film...

We only stayed here one night on route to Yosemite from Vegas. Wish we had stayed for two. Lovely room. Nice pool and hot tub. Great little town with lots of places to eat and drink. Amazing views and a lovely cinema museum nearby.

This property is a motel and hotel. We stayed in the "historic" hotel which equates to old! The room was clean but lacked AC, a fan, Kleenex, wash clothes, coffee pot to name a few. It had an old relic tv with bad reception and the room was small with windows on 2 sides looking into a court yard and...

My friend and I had just finished thru hiking the John Muir Trail and the Dow Villa was our first motel stay in 18 days. We arrived before check in time but the front desk clerks, Benjamin and Genesse gave us towels, soap and shampoo and directed us to showers we could us until our room was ready. They also...

We have been traveling US 395 in the Eastern Sierra for 20 years and have spent most of those visits at the Dow Villa. We visited most recently Labor Day Weekend 2013. There are two parts to the Dow Villa; the original 2-story hotel building (1920s) and motel-style modern rooms. We have stayed in both and find the hotel building...

Stayed at the Dow Villa Hotel (not the motel) which is a good location if you're passing through from Death Valley. The hotel is quirky and unique! Staff are really helpful. Although the hotel is dated and can sometimes have an odd smell in the corridors, they seem to pride themselves on the numerous references to John Wayne and the...
