I had an unplanned stay here for one night due to some car trouble. The proprietress here was very friendly. The room, super clean and recently refurbished, one of the cleanest rooms I've stayed in. I appreciated having a small refrigerator. It is an older and simply appointed establishment. The main structural walls are painted cinder block. One might think... More

Now I can say I've stayed in every single motel in Big Pine! Wow, what an accomplishment! Haha, but seriously, there are only three in the whole town, so... Of the 3, I think I like this one the best. Starlight is close, but this one seems to be quieter in terms of road noise. Bristlecone is kind of a... More

The room was very nice. Old 60s style, but everything was either refurbished or new. Spacious with a frig and use of a microwave in the ice room. The outdoor area was grass and very pleasant to sit and read. The rooms are set back from the highway and are quiet at night. I had made a reservation and we... More

Well, the second time it was by choice, the first because it was there and convenient. A Mom and Pop, though I only saw Mom. Very reasonable rates, very nice lady running the place. Clean and quiet and quite comfortable, a little dated, but not in any need of improvement, unless you really need a flat screen instead of the... More

A classic 1950's makeover that is well done, comfortable, and clean. In room Refrigerator is a nice touch. Manager is very knowledgable about local fishing and hunting if that is what you interested in.

This place is old, but it has been kept up well. The lady who runs the place is really friendly (in a good way). Room was clean and updated. Wifi worked, fridge in room, good ice machine as well. Pillows not quite up to par. Power strip in room to charge up phones and camera batteries (much appreciated). Bathroom was... More

The Big Pine Motel is a wonderful place to stay. The manager is a VERY friendly lady and really made us feel welcome. Our dogs were also welcome (note: there is a 10$ per pet fee). The room was very clean and the atmosphere is really nice. They have barbeques that you can use in the common area as well... More

We needed a motel in Bishop California...which is along the beautiful highway 395. The motels in Bishop were over priced and too much traffic. So we decided to drive the few miles to Big Pine. Boy, were we glad. We found the Big Pine Motel and it was just what we needed. A "50's" type motel. One level, drive car... More

The room was bright, spacious, convenient and freshly painted, with newer carpet. The reading light was excellent too. The mattress was firm. The room had a small fridge that worked well. There was no hair dryer, but that wasn't needed in October anyway. The AC worked well. The staff was very cordial and helpful, suggesting things to do. The woman... More

Most personable and helpful manager we have met in years. Well worth the money. Clean and simple with good wi-fi and lots of TV channels for the flat screen. Nice open space with picnic tables and bar-b-que grills. Thanks female manager.
