“Great place, clean, comfortable and lovely owners.”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

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 around 45 minutes drive away. Was ideal for us to stay there, as we could go to Death Valley nice and early the following morning.

Highly recommend.

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 make sure we were comfortable & had everything we needed despite arriving fairly late, approx 11pm, on a Sunday. The beds were simple & standard older motel style, but they were comfortable. A/C unit worked well & kept the room cool & comfy all night. Real coffee mugs with the coffee pot! Parking at the door for quick & easy loading/unloading. Good wi-fi. Considering rates in the area, this was reasonable for summer @ $85 for two double beds, but that may vary depending on time of yr & day of the week. I'm picky about hotels, but I'll take great service any day over a few frills. Keep your expectations modest, and you won't be disappointed.

Long day hike and when we came back room wasnt cleaned and no clean towels. Air conditioning was turned off by one of the workers for some reason. Most likely Julie. Terribly expensive for the service. Location is great if your going to court though.

Still love the place.. but my first review I forgot to mention the REAL COFFEE MUGS!! not plastic, and 2 packets of caffeinated coffee instead of the usual one and one decaf. And still very reasonable rates even in the summer. Not to mention the great hospitality. Thanks Julie and Ed. We'll see you when we head south again! Glad you were able to help poor Gina (recent review). Go across the street and visit the very interesting old courtroom in the courthouse. The seats have wire racks for your cowboy hats! also be sure to visit Manzanar a few miles south. Very disturbing but the message is still timely.

Hiked Mt. Whitney on June 22, 2013. Plans were to get off the mountain by 4 p.m. and drive to Mammoth for a spa/nice dinner. Well....didn't get off the mountain until 9 p.m. and was exhausted and dirty. Lone Pine was absolutely sold out. Called Courthouse Motel at 9:45 p.m. and Julie answered the phone. She had a queen size bed and said it was a no frills place but clean and available. She was exact in her representation. Julie's husband went to the room to start the air conditioner so it would be cool for us while we were checking in...very clean, very nice owners and I felt right at home.

I was so thankful she answered because I called 5 hotels and was prepared to sleep in the car. What a nice surprise to find such hospitality. I would definitely stay there again!
