Comfort Inn - Lone Pine
Travel Blogs from Lone Pine
Vanmorgen vroeg opgestaan, want de mannen wilden om acht uur op de golfbaan staan. De Mount Whitney Golf Club. Een baan die past bij het klimaat. Droog gras, vervelende bosjes, bijna geen water, maar wel veel bunkers. Anders dan de baan in Sedona was dit geen Par 3 baan, maar een echte baan voor grote jongens. Twee maal Par 5, twee maal Par 3 en …
De wifi-loze periode in ons leven heeft een tweede nadelig gevolg gehad. Omdat we niet uitgezocht hadden hoe lang de rit duurde en ook niet tot hoe laat Death Valley National Park toegankelijk was, ervoeren we een timeclash in optima forma. We arriveerden rond half vier in Lone Pine (dat we standaard uit blijven spreken zoals jullie het lezen) na …
... we were back on track and trudging along again.
The weather was overcast and cooler, which was a godsend, given we had the largest elevation gain in under 5 miles. We reached our first campsite between First Lake and Second Lake (yes, these are the names of the lakes). We set up camp, ate lunch, filtered water and took a nap before exploring the area. This place was GORGEOUS! The views from our camp were breathtaking and we could have easily stayed here for another ...
... the list goes on. So my sweet friend Gio and her family saved us! They invited us into their home for dinner, showers, and good sleep. They even gave us a tour of the Marin Headlands! We are so grateful to them for their hospitality!! We also got to see my older brother, Jason, for a little bit near San Fran. After some stops at auto services places and so on, we continued.We stayed in Monterey, CA for ...
... quite windy here and I had to use a bungee cord to hold the solar panel down. We took a hike out of Glacier Lodge (Big Pine area) up to First lake and we tried to hike the Kearsage Pass trail and were stopped by snow. Also, we visited and hiked in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest. In all the years I have been visiting the Sierras, I had never been to this area. I believe the oldest tree there was 4600 years old.
So Long! Sierra ...

Nice hotel for nice views
Stayed here for two nights recently in my favorite Old West town. Room was Comfort Inn standard, very clean and looks as if it had been recently renovated (within 6 months, I'm guessing). Plenty of towels for two people. Got a balcony room facing Sierra's and although it was downright cold couldn't resist the view. Dealt with two clerks. One was nice and efficient although her cell call to her boyfriend seemed more important to her than doing her job. The other was about as friendly as a barracuda. Thank God SHE didn't check me in. But I will return next time I go to Lone Pine.
Great stopover hotel - between Death Valley & Yosemite
Stayed here half-way through our honeymoon. Only stopped here because we ran out of daylight on our drive from Death Valley to Yosemite. However, very nice little town and decent hotel. Mountain-view hotel rooms all decent sized (with two king sized beds even in a double room). Hotel itself was laid out more like a motel. Would definitely recommend a night here to others if they want to break up the drive from Death Valley to Yosemite, but perhaps not worth a special visit otherwise.
Motel is older but seemed quite clean until we woke up at 2:30am to find bedbugs in both our beds. UGH! Because of the infestation we were not charged for the room but are still upset by the situation.
This was a nice place. The room was clean and comfortable. The stay was about $65 with tax, that included a continental breakfast with a view of the mountains. The shampoo they had worked great. We helped ourselves to a few extra bottles! But no conditioner. Our first room had a toilet that ran. When we asked for another room, they gave us one without hesitation.
We ate at the Totem Cafe and it was really good. The people there were real friendly. And the steak we had was a great value too. And yummy. We got gas up the street, on the north end of town for less than the Big Name just north of the hotel.
The rooms are quiet,very comfortable and clean.Ask for a room facing Mount Whitney for a sunrise which is breathtaking.The motel is away from the hustle and bustle of the town.It takes only a few minutes to reach food and the road to Mount Whitney and the Alabama Hills (both well worth seeing).Also Route 136 to Death Valley and the Death Valley visitors center is about 500 feet from the motel.The odor in the halls eminates from the small cattle ranch across the road only when the hallway doors are open(kind of pleasant).There is no odor in the rooms!We would definately stay here again!
Great place- shakey front desk
Great place. Very clean room. Prices a little high. We have been here before, in sept. 2005 and oct. 2004. and overall were pleased. Just be careful , when you make a reservation, or cancel one. Document everything. This could be a GREAT hotel , instead of a GOOD one. if they could only get there act together at the front desk. This seems to be a problem at a lot of hotels. Customer service at check in is poor. Management take note. Don't punish your customers. Train your front desk people better.
Good hotel in lovely surroundings
We stayed here 1 night while traveling from Yosemite to Death Valley. This was a value for money hotel with a lot of amenities and a huge TV! The swimming pool is quite small but adequate for chilling out. You will have to find food up the road for dinner but there is breakfast provided that is enough to start the journey to Death Valley. Internet access in reception here was useful.
OK hotel but poor location
Stayed 1 night in Lone Pine Sept 2004, as a convenient stopover between Yosemite and Death Valley. Hotel is OK - good clean room & friendly helpful staff but the location could be better - right on the edge of town. No bar, no restaurant. You need to be early to find a place to eat in town unless you're happy with a burger! Breakfast room is tiny.
Not much to recommend Lone Pine except views of Mt Whitney. Alabama Hills (just outside town) were used as location for old Western movies - map available from tourist office but very difficult to follow.
Ready for refurbishment?
Lone Pine is a handy stop between Yosemite and Las Vegas but not much choice of where to stay and the BW was full up way in advance. This place was adequate but has seen better days. Lovely views but paying extra for balcony was a waste of money. Balcony furniture very poor and outside of building best not viewed close up! Corridor smelt very stale. Breakfast pastries looked appetising but not the little bugs which were hiding underneath!
Very nice for the setting!
The hotel is right on the sothern entrance to the town of lone pine & very nice to just pull in after a long trip up. The people are friendly & helpful... the Rooms are clean & there is even a pool outside that is offten great at dusk to watch the sunset over the mountains. even has a view of mnt. whitney.... deffinetly the place to stay in lone pine.
