The motel needs a proper renovation! The romm had a distinct smell to it. Adding to a bad room-experience was the dark green/brown furnishing. The motel offers a breakfast, but this is very limited. Also the outside of the motel looks very worn-out. However, the service was excellent, with very friendly staff. Unfortunately, this is not sufficient to compensate an... More

My fiance and I make an overnight mid-tour stop in Bishop if we are heading to southern California. I've stayed at a couple of places in Bishop, and this place served its purpose for what we needed: Sleep and a shower. The bed was pretty comfortable and the room was small but clean. The room overall is a little run... More

Let me start by saying their website is hilarious and you should stay here based on that alone - thebestmotelever . com We had been camping (in Winter) so were so happy to be staying indoors, somewhere warm. The WiFi was good, the room was comfortable, clean and cheap. The owner was friendly. Have no complaints, this is a great... More

this was the last day/night of our trip (ghost town adventures) before heading home. A great place to stay no frills but very clean, comfortable and quiet. The room has a fridge and there is a continental breakfast (cold cereal, muffins, toast, juice and coffee). There are many places to eat around Bishop and things to see and do. If... More

We stayed 3 nights here and paid a great rate. The room was exceptionally clean, and the service was quick and very friendly. There was a continental breakfast that went until 10 am, which was very generous, and the housekeeper suggested heating the pastries, and she was right, they were much better that way. We had no problem getting wireless... More

Cheap and cheerful, nice friendly owner. Basic but very clean rooms. Decent wifi and fridge in room. We stayed here on way from Vegas to Yosemite and it was perfect location. Would recommend as a stopover, but don't expect 5-star service (what do you expect for $50-60 a night?).

I'm not sure why so many other reviewers were expecting "Hilton"-like amenities at one of the least expensive places in Bishop (a fairly expensive resort town)... This is a typical low/mid-price motel. The room was clean, the bed was bug-free and comfortable, the Wi-Fi worked fine in our room (we were near the front), the bathroom was basic but fine,... More
