“Great Stay in Lone Pine”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Rode into town on my iron horse just like all those cowboys of yesterday in the black and white television shows filmed in and around Lone Pine. Excellent stay at the Best Western Plus Frontier Motel, and I would hope for nothing less. The property is older but it is well maintained with modern fixtures, beds and furniture. The young lady at the counter upon check-in was efficient and friendly. While it was not warm enough to take a swim, we did sit out at the pool in the sunshine and enjoy the magnificent views of the Eastern Sierra Nevada! The morning hot breakfast is very good for a chain hotel, well stocked and immaculately clean. I gave this property a very good rating because it is well maintained, clean and the provided for a great nights rest.

Great place to stay all considered, but if you park in the wrong spot, expect to get a call in the middle of the night even if some one was parked in your spot when you arrived! The rooms have been modernized and are attractive and the views of the Sierras are extraordinary.

We stayed two nights here and saw Death Valley and the Alabama Hills. The room was clean both days, the beds were new and cozy, and our boys enjoyed the pancake maker at breakfast. I would stay here again and again.

Our last visit here was in 1981 and were surprised that not a lot has changed. It all seemed so familiar. Though the front of our room was not particularly prepossessing, once we got in we found we had a view from the back to the Sierras and Lone Pine airport where there were zero traffic movements. There was a door and a little terrace with table and chairs where we could sit out.

The room had fridge and microwave and has been refurbished we suspect not too long ago. For an older Best Western it was not bad.

"Free" breakfast was good.

But, during the night we had to kill a cockroach under the sink and when we came to shower there were tiny ants in the tub. We understand older properties are going to suffer problems like this from time to time. The problem for us was that, when we told reception about this when we checked out, not a word of an apology nor any compensation was offered. So we will vote with our feet next time and stay somwhere else.

This is an older style motel and may be a little better than sleeping in an older RV. The bathroom was probably the most irritating part of the room. The shower water would cycle between very hot and very cold and had my wife screaming HOT and then COLD! She had to call me in there one time because she couldn’t get to the knobs to turn them down or she’d be scolded. It was so hot that after leaving the bathroom door open the steam set off the smoke alarm which took forever to stop. My wife went to unplug her hair dryer and pulled the entire socket half way out of the electrical box! Somehow little gnats were finding their way in the room because the lights in both the room and bathroom were filled with them and the flying type ants. The breakfast area had ants crawling on the muffin/bread holder, the pancakes were rubbery and the other options were just not appetizing. We decided to eat elsewhere the next morning. The fish cleaning area has no lights so be sure you get your fish cleaned before dark. The pool was outstanding, it was very clean and warm and is the only thing that saved it from having a terrible rating but they shut it down at 9:00! Most places close their pools at 10:00; 9:00 is too early. It isn’t worth the price they charge and we would definitely stay at another location next time we are in town.

We booked a month ahead and stayed at the BW Plus Frontier Motel in Lone Pine after the WWW Marathon and 50k. The bathrooms are remodeled and large. The rooms are cozy and comfortable. There is a mini fridge, small microwave, and a television. The air conditioner/heater worked great. The complimentary coffee was nice. The breakfast was great, we were hungry so it seemed pretty darn good. They have an awesome little pancake machine, potatoes, cheese omelets, sausage, and all the usual yogurt, bread, cereals, juice, coffee, and all that good stuff. We had a very pleasant stay.
