    Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Frontier Motel Lone Pine

    A Great Motel


    This is a beautiful motel at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains (Mt. Whitney). Stayed at this motel one night in July 2005. Standard room rate was $94.50. The rooms are large, clean and quiet. There is a guest laundry. Front office staff is friendly and helpful. I had some car problems and asked the staff about a trustworthy garage in town. They guided me to a repair shop in town that fixed my car problem quickly and at a reasonable price. The grounds are nicely landscaped. There is a free continental breakfast which is very nice. I definetly would stay here again.

    Enogh space / free W-LAN / average


    Just a normal, average room, free W-Lan in room was good. Free Breakfast was nothing special; good, that it's available from 5 a.m. in morning. We had some problems in charging with 1-800-numbers (even they told it's free of charge they charged me with about USD 15.-- for 2 calls by checkout and it took more than 20 minutes until they took it from the bill; not very friendly at check-out; friendly at check in (Trainee).

    Whirlpool nothing special, a lot of bad insects in room (I dont know how they have been called in English; German: Motten; means, they eat your clothes...).

    Nice hotel, good place


    We enjoyed our stay in this hotel. It's close to Death Valley and not far away from the centre of Lone Pine.

    Only negative thing is we called in advance to enter the room early. This was not a problem. When we arrived the room was not ready yet. So we went back to town and when we came back the room was still not ready.

    We waited for 20 minutes and the room was ok.

    The pool was closed at that moment :( Because of heavy wind coming in.

    The hotel and breakfast were fine. So I assume most people won't have the 'pre'problems... this is a great hotel.

    Great location, clean, breakfast included!


    My husband and I stayed 1 night at the Best Western Frontier in Lone Pine on our way to Death Valley. I booked the 2 queen beds room, which was comfortable, and clean. Parking was just outside your room, and the hotel was pet friendly. Breakfast was included in the price, and consisted of bagels, muffins, toast, fruits and cereals. I would the rate the breakfast as OK, nothing special, but you could get your fill before you started your day.

    Great motel at a great price


    The Best Western affords a wonderful view of Mt. Whitney and is located close, but not too close, to the commercial section of Lone Pine. Our family of five was impressed by the good and helpful service of all the desk clerks, the cleanliness and spaciousness of our room and bathroom, the decent continental breakfast, and the motel property itself. The AAA rate is unbelievably good deal for what this Best Western provides. The beds were very comfortable and the premises quiet. We will most certainly return on our way to our next visit to Mammoth area. By the way, Lone Pine is a great get away destination of its own. Our three boys loved the Whitney Portal and climbing on the rocks of the Alabama Hills.



    My husband and I stayed in Lone Pine on our way to Yosemite.

    I have stayed in a 3 star Best Western hotel in Europe which was good, however the standard here was much lower.

    The decor was old and a/c was very noisy, so if you are planning on staying, 1 night is enough for anyone.

    A whirlpool tub - how nice(!)


    After a long day in Death Valley where it reached 117 degrees, my girlfriend and I were very pleased to see how nice our room was when we checked in for one night in May 04. The room was massive, with a small lounge area, King size bed, two sinks and a huge whirlpool tub - great for relaxing in. The staff were charming, parking was immediately outside our room and we found a great restaraunt just down the road.

    Would most certainly stay again - our room was called "Greogry Peck"!

    A perfect find after a long drive from Las Vegas.


    Fantastic views, reasonable rates and a good complimentary continental breakfast. The setting is magical with views over Mt Whitney and the Alabama Hills. Staff friendly and the little town of Lone Pine was a real surprise for a Brit - small town western USA with really good restaurants.

    I would recommend this to anyone.

    Geat Place


    Great Place. Have stayed here several times and the quality and comfort are consistent. Best bet in Lone Pine.

    People & Dog Friendly Motel !!!


    We love the Best Western "Frontier" Motel in Lone Pine, California. They welcome us and our two Great Danes (160 pounds each) with Open Arms each time we arrive for our twice yearly stays(April & October)...Nice Rooms, especially the ones with a jacuzzi, spectacular view of Mount Whitney from Motel Lawn. Lone Pine Airport Field is perfect for Dog Walking, right out our room door. Airport Manager is friendly also...Highly Recommend thismotel for Lodging while in Lone Pine.

    We left Sonora around 8am to go meet our California friends in Lone Pine. They were coming north to meet us as we headed south.

    We had to go back over the dreaded route 108 that treated us so rudely two days earlier. Today it was a totally different. The sun was out, the temperature was warm, and we were able to really enjoy the …

The death valley was much more beautiful then expected but also as hot as expected 45.6C or 114F.

    ... them and that they were definitely still on the trail. I hiked for a bit with Shepherd, Hummingbird, and Smokey. When I finally reached the south fork of the Kern River, flowing beautifully, and abundantly, I couldn't resist stopping to get wet in the river. It felt so glorious to see this flowing river, for the last time I saw such abundant flowing water was around mile 208 near Cabazon/Big Bear. Smokey joined me here ...

    ... Right?

    Very quickly the next day i realized that my body was still very tired from the Whitney climb. This day was going to prove to be just as difficult though, for i was going to climb over Forester pass. This 13,000 Ft. pass is the border of kings canyon and sequoia national parks and is the highest point on the pacific crest trail.
    I was probably more excited about the forester pass climb then i had been about the Whitney climb, for last time i ...
