always a pleasure to stay here We stayed here for two nights to spend some time with friends and we wish we had more time to enjoy this motel also. The staff (and locals!) are all very friendly, the room was a good size and decent bathroom. There is a store and gas station on site and a laundry next... More

Very clean and quiet motel. All the necessary amenities and reasonable rates. They also accept pets and our dog was quite happy. Convenient to gasoline and food. Lots of activities in the area if you have time.

As in “no, we don’t have your reservation” [despite receiving an email confirmation]. Clearly, my family did not actually get to experience the splendor(?) that is the Bristlecone Motel / gas station. We had booked a room for two nights online. When we went to check in, the hotel manager did not have us penciled into this book (though he... More

I have stayed at this motel several times and each and every time I'm delighted with the quality of sleep I get and the kind service. Reasonably priced and comfortable, moves this place to the top in my list and the location to the Ancient Bristlecone Pine NP is perfectly convenient. There are many local sights to see and everyone... More

The Bristlecone is a wonderful roadside motel. The rooms are large, clean and serve their purpose. We always stay here when we go to Big Pine / Bishop. There is a gas station and mini mart right next to the motel. It is owned and operated by the same folks who own the motel. The mini mart has everything. Be... More

This motel does the job and does it right. We took our first trip to Owen's Valley, and despite the sort of "extreme motel" sense you get pulling up, the interior is excellent, at least in the room where we stayed, which was spacious, quiet, with a vaulted ceiling and next to two extremely well-stocked markets, yet not over in...

We stayed in room 20, everything was perfect, but read the back of the door about the fire department. The room was clean, the maid was so very nice. I have a Service Dog and she was treated wonderfully. Beautiful place to take a walk. Close to Bishop's Mule Days. Really nice little store it has every thing and I... More
