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...

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...

We drove into Independence very late at night, about ten hours into a long road trip. We were happy to find a place that was still open. The owners were very accommodating and friendly (even at that late hour). It was a warm, clean, cozy place to crash for the night!

I found the Courthouse Motel accidentally when getting a Subway sandwich in Independence. I make the trip from Nevada to Victorville often to see my dad. I love vintage motels.. and this was a wonderful one (wiring all up to date, modernized, and nice quilted bedspread :). Great price, close to all the nice attractions of the area. OK you...
