Excellent service, attended by a very friendly and very nice couple. The hotel is comfortable and has what you need. My two daughters and I were there only one night, but very good. The couple who attended us, I suppose husbands, treated us very well and gave us a basket with fruit and snacks, they accompanied us to the room to show us that everything was working well and they even brought us two heaters, since it was cold.

We were looking for a place to stay between Death Valley and Yosemite so ended up booking one night at this motel. On arrival we received a very friendly reception by the owners and were offered cold water. The rooms are not that big, but very clean and complete (tv, coffee maker,small fridge, microwave). The owners also warned us that the few eating options would close very soon and that it would be better to have dinner first before getting settled in the room. Although the motel is located on the main road we slept very well. The next morning when checking out we were offered some 'munchies' with a choice of apples, cookies and granola bars.

The owner of this small motel was very welcoming and showed us to our room while enquiring if we needed anything further. Bottled water was offered if we needed it. The room had new bed linen and towels as well as complimentary toiletries which also included a sewing kit. These little touches made us feel welcome. She offered advice on local attractions. The owner has recently taken over this motel and is continuing to make improvements. Highly recommended if you are travelling through Independence on highway US 395.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the lovely owner and was offered cold water. They have only owned the motels for 3 months and are trying to upgrade starting with all new linen. The rooms are small but there is outsides seating and tables where we ate our dinner which we heated in the in room microwave. There was a TV, luggage rack, small closet, air conditioner and small fridge. The over the bath shower was very powerful and hot. We had a great chat with the friendly owner and our next door traveler who was a tramper and we encouraged him to come to NZ to experience our beautiful tracks. We had a good sleep but had to turn off the air conditioner as it was very loud. also had to put in sir plugs as the fridge made a loud humming noise.

This motel has the friendliest and most helpful owners and staff I’ve seen in lodging in years! They are super heartwarming and will go out of their way to improve your stay and help your experience be as enjoyable as it could possibly be. The rooms are some if not the cleanest motel rooms I’ve ever been in. There is a wonderful backyard so to speak with two patios and a BBQ. And 2 fire pits to sit and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere with your friends in the cooler temperature of the evenings(summers are 95+) Overall a wonderful and memorable experience in the Owens Valley. Will be staying there all my visits in the future top notch!
