The one positive is that it's close to Bodie and Mono Lake. That's it. We booked three months in advance because we knew it woould be crowded. We were expected to pay IN FULL, with a 25% penalty if we cancelled at any time. In general anything we asked of management was eventually done, but we shouldn't have had to ask for such basic things for such an expensive room. The buildings are old, shabby, and poorly maintained. Our room had a broken outlet at the only place to use a computer, so I had to ask for an extension cord. When I pointed out that the outlet was a fire hazard, the reply was "You don't have to stay here." If all other motels weren't fully booked (which they knew) we would have left. The room was freezing cold, and the heater had an old sign that read "Do not use." They had a panel heater instead that I was told would heat the room in eight hours if we kept the bathroom door and drapes closed at all times. They offered a tiny space heater, but we wouldn't be able to use it while any other electrical device (likethe TV) was on. All the light bulbs were 25 watt, and they had to search find a brighter bulb. Being able to actually SEE the room was a mistake. The carpet was torn and worn, the walls were dingy and badly needed painting, and the curtains hung crooked and were ripped. Also, the shower was cold with little water pressure, and the room had an "old" building smell.
The owner/managementis clearly taking advantage of location and the lack of many other choices. They are making little effort if any in maintaining even basic safety necessities, let alone any amenities.
I absolutely would never stay here again.

Room Tip: Stay any where else.

We planned our trip last minute and there was not much choice so we stayed 3 nights in this motel.
It was close to end of the season but still a way too expensive for what it is. The internet connection was extremly slow. It was clean and one could hardly hear people in neighbouring rooms (which is usually not the case in motels).

Recently stayed here one night for a road trip to the Eastern Sierras to see Fall Colors.

DH and I shared the DELUXE 2-ROOM FAMILY SUITE with DB and his wife and we had plenty of room. There are two sinks which made getting ready really easy when someone was using the shower or the toilet.

The room was quiet and had great view of Mono Lake. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was also updated [ glass shower ]. Room temps were good, no issue with heating at all.

Would stay here again. Bonus was getting to meet Ozzy the friendly cat who lounges in the lobby area. Front desk also friendly.

Room Tip: From what we could tell, many of the rooms are well appointed with nice views. If you have the option, ask for a room on the higher floor. The DELUXE 2-ROOM FAMILY SUITE was good value, can sleep 6 adults.

My husband and I stayed here for one night in August. The room was yes on the small side, but really cosy, pretty and immaculately clean. We were in the room directly next to the office with an amazing view of Mono Lake from the shared outside patio. Really comfortable bed- didn't want to get out of it!The only thing that made me give four rather than five stars is the busy road noise. This actually wasn't as disturbing as I thought it might be and it certainly didn't disturb our night's sleep( we live in a really quiet place and I am hyper- sensitive to traffic noise)- and the road noise would apply to anywhere in Lee Vining. The lady at reception was charming, helpful and friendly. This was our second stay- and would love to come back and would definitely recommend (we have stayed in other hotels in Lee Vining- this is our favourite).

Room Tip: When we stayed a few years ago we were in room 11 or 12, which are much further away from the road and much quieter.

Clean & comfortable with good food across the road. It is on the main road but there was no traffic noise the views over the lake were wonderful. Friendly staff & car parking was out of view of the road. Free WiFi too :)
