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

We stayed in this hotel for one nigth. I think it's a good choice for a stop-off between Yosemite and Las Vegas. Cute hotel, well located in Bishop. Rooms are clean and quite comfortable. Each room are in a separate building with a car park just in front which is really appreciable. We want to thanks the Lady who owns... More

So, before I go into details, let's set some context: it's a motel in a very remote area where lodging is scarce during high climbing season. Anywhere else, this would be a 1-star review. PROS: - clean room, looks like it was renovated - decent beds and linen - good location - Teachings of Buddha instead of Bible - kind... More

Cute place, quaint even, but for $90 a night I expect to sleep. The air conditioning in room 6 was so loud, that sleep was impossible!! & at 80* at 9pm, the air needed to be on. I finally put the pillow over my head to muffle some of the noise. When you can't sleep you begin to notice everything... More

It is definitely not a Best Western or modern chain motel. It was probably built in the 1940s or 1950s, so expect the rooms to be relatively small. Some parts of the room we stayed in were recently renovated and other parts were probably renovated a few years ago. I believe that there are typically four units to a building... More
