Independence Hotel - HST Discount

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Independence Hotel - HST Discount

Post by jdub » Tue Nov 15, 2005 5:21 pm

FYI-

Anyone passing through the Independence area?

Stop by the Court House Motel, HST member recieve a discount.

My father-in-law recently (July 2005) purchased the Court House Motel in Independence, CA. http://www.395.com/courthousemotel/

I spoke with him last week and he agreed to give a "Hikers Discount" to member of HST. He has a lot of PCT through-hikers in the summer, who started the "Hikers Discount" and wants to keep a good thing going. You are also able to use the laundry ($3.00 a load), the BBQ facilities, and the Onion Valley Trailhead is only minutes away.

Just letting you know,

JDub

Courthouse Motel

Hey, really good to know. Thank him for us. We've stayed there a number of times on our way in or out of Kearsarge. It's an OK motel, though you want the rooms away from the highway... .

And, while you're staying there in beautiful Independence, be sure to have dinner at The Still Life -- 3 doors south of the Post Office. Looks just like a storefront burger place, but is a truly outstanding French restaurant. Don't be in a hurry 'cause their new motto is "Still Waiting? Still Life" Really. But it's worth the wait. Get a bottle of wine and it doesn't matter.

Is this still the case? I stayed there last January and spoke with the owner. It was a woman, but I can't remember her name. She said she had just bought the motel. Maybe jdub can clear this up.

Her name is Rosetta, she used to own the B&B next door. My father in law sold the Court House Inn to her this past fall. I am not sure if the discount still applies, but it should, she has been very friendly to hikers in the past.

I will investigate further and post back with more info.
