NO AIR CONDITIONING -Was told the unit runs on water- fill with a pitcher turn it on. The motor puts out heat and the fan blows out warm air. No cooling involved. Only had a patio door screen to let cool air in as people walked by to get to their rooms and the bed was in full view. No window fan , no ceiling fan. Also. my room was paid for in points ahead of time. I was still charged over $170. That tells me she double collected on that room $340 for a room with no AC AND NO PHONE, ETC , We had to go up and down steps that were outside to get to our room. I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND THIS PLACE EVER

We enjoyed our one night stay in room 18 June 27th. The room was clean, the AC worked great, and the beds were comfortable. the Wifi worked well also. We enjoyed the view of Mono Lake from the outside chairs and tables. We had no issues with noise from neighbors or the highway. We always use a white noise machine. I forgot something in the room when we left and the management promptly mailed it to me. I appreciate that customer service. I would stay here again.

I stayed here for one night and honestly it is worse than your average motel. The little “AC” they give you does nothing at all to cool down your room it’s useless and there are no fans in the room. The property also needs some upkeep renovations. Just get an Air B&B and skip this place. Awful.

One of the worst value-for-money hotel rooms I have ever stayed at. The room has no fridge, no air condition (the fan is useless in the summer heat), and no real door (just an old sliding door that locks with a tiny latch). The advertised “balcony” is actually the open corridor that leads to the rooms, and the “lake view” is a joke - the only view is boring hills and the lake is very far in the distance. The staff wasn’t too nice either, and the price was far too high for this steaming-hot basic room.

Motel is in a great location with a view of Mono Lake. There are 2 restaurants directly across the street. Good COVID precautions. Rooms are updated to provide ample plug in for devices, the beds are comfortable, and it was clean and well cared for. The service was above and beyond. I left my phone charger in the room when we checked out. I called the next day and they found it and mailed it priority mail the very next day. A big thank you to Rose and her manager for being so thoughtful. I would definitely stay here again!
