“Great people and recently remodeled!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

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 new and clean. They also have some seating areas and a BBQ. We will be back for sure!

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 is a service station across the street that is owned by the same family.

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 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.
