When is the last time you visited Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, the ghost town at Bodie or sat in a natural hot spring?  When is the last time you traveled across Sonora Pass and had your breath taken away by the majestic scenery?  Have you ever seen beautiful Lake Topaz, Mono Lake, Twin Lakes or June Lake? Would you like to experience the thrill of watching a bald eagle soar high above Lake Topaz?

Situated half-way between Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park, this 1940’s style motel in Walker, California, is a natural ‘home base’ for all of your vacation plans.  If nature is your passion, the West Walker Motel is located on Highway 395 with 770 acres of riparian habitat at your disposal. Streams, rivers and springs within this area provide some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.  The West Walker River is designated a wild and scenic river by the state, and is one of only two free-flowing rivers on the east side of the Sierras.  More than 1,275 species of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians, including many that are threatened and endangered call this area home.  

Whether you are staying close to home this year or traveling a long distance, you will not be disappointed by "Experiencing the Beautiful Eastern Sierra!"

Our women-owned motel offers many conveniences found in high-end hotels and motels.  Each room is decorated differently with specific themes from the Wizard of Oz to our romantic honeymoon suite.  We have in-room gourmet coffee for you to relax outside and enjoy in the morning or evening.  Great new showers, plush towels, and handmade soap from Sagebrush Soap Factory are just waiting for you to enjoy.

Come to the West Walker Motel once and you will want to come back again.  Enjoy the serenity, or the take in the impressive scenery of the Eastern Sierra, fish, hike, ride your motorcycle, swim in nearby lakes or rivers, chase butterflies, look for rare birds and most of all have a great getaway or vacation.  This is an opportunity to make family memories that will last for many years to come.
