It's got a cool old-school motel feel to it. Jim, the owner, is extremely friendly and helpful, and made a mean coffee cake for breakfast. The room was very clean and the views of the mountains are really nice.

What a great place to rest after eight days hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. Jim, the owner, clearly cares about making his guests feel at home. We were greeted with a pitcher of ice water and loaned robes so we could do laundry. The room we had was very clean, cozy, and nicely decorated. There are plenty of outdoor spaces...

This hotel is very clean, I am a somewhat boring with cleanliness, and it was very clean, I greatly appreciate it. It is comfortable, the rooms are large and quiet despite being a few meters from the highway. I'd stay here again for sure. Jim the owner is very polite and attentive.

My room was very clean and full of the most modern amenities. I stayed here for one night in May of 2015. This place is very quiet. The manager (Inn Keeper) is very nice and knowledgeable. If you are passing through, the French Restaurant across the street is amazing.

Caretaker Jim was very friendly and hospitable. The scenery of the snow-capped Sierra Mountains was a beautiful and welcome view to open our door to each morning. Manzanar is only about 5 miles south. Highly recommended for everyone visiting Owens Valley.

I have stayed at the Independence in several times and keep returning on my twice yearly visits to the Eastern Sierras. Jim is friendly and sticks to his goal of making sure all of his quests have a great experience. This is not high end luxury but each room has been renovated and nicely furnished and very well maintained. Jim...

Jim gives each guest personal attention. He will pick you up and take you back to the Kearsarge trailhead for $5 each way. I texted Jim from the pass and a ride was waiting for me when I reached the trailhead. Jim handled my re-supply shipment at no extra cost and I was able to do laundry for $5. Clean...
