The Comfort Inn in Lone Pine is located at the base of the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains, close to Mount Whitney, but for us it was just a stop between Las Vegas, Death Valley, and Yosemite National Park. It’s 40 miles from Death Valley and around 125 miles from Yosemite.
When you arrive at the hotel, you can easily park your car, because they have plenty of parking spaces. On the outside the hotel looks fine. The lobby is small and cosy. The owners are very friendly when we checked in and give you a good feeling.
The room we had was not too big but also not small. I think we had one of the smaller ones. It was clean and had a king-size bed as requested. The room has a phone, and you can make local calls. It also had a cable television, air-conditioning, microwave, refrigerator, and free newspaper every morning. The bedroom was small but clean and had a hair dryer. The hotel also offers a free continental breakfast. It has a limited choice but is good to start the day. Next to the hotel there’s the pool. The pool was clean and large enough for the hotel, but when we where there, it was very windy. The swim we took was not a real pleasure.
Overall, we found this hotel a bit pricey for the things you get. We paid $80.95 per night without taxes. This is also the hotel located the farthest from the town center. The hotel is a good choice, but maybe there are better choices in town.
