This is a quiet, old fashioned motor motel off the main drag but easy walking to restaurants and a quick market. It is pretty basic but clean with good beds and in good repair. The rooms are in bungalows so there are lots of windows, but little privacy is you want the shades open.

My husband and me stayed at this hotel for one night (thank God!) on our way to Vegas. Its location is great as it's right in the middle between Yosemite and Vegas. The main drawback is the depressing decoration and size of the room as well as the little insects (i'd better not look into them more) we found on... More

A friend and I stayed here for one night before travelling to Yosemite and booked last minute so was quite pricey. Room was good with cable tv. Bad point was the shower; the water dribbled onto me. Great car parking facilities which were directly outside the room. A freezer and ice are available.

I used to come to Bishop 40 years ago as a child and I've been visiting ever since. The Elms Motel is a delightful visit into a bygone traveling experience. The rooms are extremely quiet, clean, cozy, and delightful. The bed was very comfortable with good-quality linens. The setting is right next to a park and the motel has an... More

Stayed 3 days. Off the main street so it was pretty quiet. Continental breakfast. Parking right at your door made it convenient for off loading and loading. Very reasonably priced. Clean. Will stay there again next year.

Since our cabin is snowed-in this time of the year, we stayed here for the weekend. The hotel was about the best price I could find and for two nights (Fri/Sat) it was only $123 total. We had room #8 which was right off the street, but was still quiet. The beds were comfortable and the continental breakfast must have... More

This was finally something else than all the other motel style rooms we stayed in during our road trip. Rooms are in a block of 2 and the whole area looks nice. It's a little off the main street, so nice and quiet. At least we thought... The walls are very thin, so you hear everything that happens next door...... More

Convienient location for visiting Death Valley and Yosemite National Park. Off the busy main road so quieter than some others in Bishop. Rooms are arranged in blocks of two with ample parking. Standard motel room with free coffee and wi;fi, although toiletries were sparse. Good selection of shops and restaurants nearby Check in was fine although we did feel we... More

To start off with the best part; the bed was comfortable. The price was also OK. The negatives were that our room was next to some sort of boiler (which kept it going all trough the night and made sleeping very difficult). Our room was equipped with a large TV set, which was nice, if it only had been working.... More

It's old, it's off the main road by a block, is in good shape, and is very comfortable. The setup is a bit unusual, two units to a pod, each pod separate, parking beside each pod. Quite old, very small rooms, but clean bedding, floors, etc, and working plumbing. We reserved via their phone number, it was slightly odd in... More
