[pct-l] Lone Pine restaurant/lodging opinions

strong opinions about motel and restaurant choices in Lone Pine. >>
Hey DP! There's only one place a hiker should stay in Lone Pine. That's the
Dow Villa Hotel. Stay in the old hotel, not the motel of the same name next
door. Lots of memorabilia and atmosphere, especially if you're a John Wayne
fan. Just a great place to relax, and the chairs in the lobby are
comfortable. Cheap, too!
Pizza is right across the street, and there's a nice breakfast place (PJ's?)
just south of the hotel on the same side of the street. They serve lunch and
dinner as well.
We resupplied in Lone Pine in '97, and stayed at the Dow Villa again last
year when we visited Death Valley. If you're returning to the trail from
Lone Pine, it's easier to go through Horseshoe Meadow and Cottonwood Pass
than Whitney Portal.
