Very nice and cozy room. Comfortable mattress. One disapproval only : full of dust all over ! I suspected that the room was not cleaned up well even if towels and bed sheets were clean. I suggest to have breakfast in the very close Great Basin Bakery and to have dinner at Aaron Schat's Roadhouse Grill.

This budget motel is a class above Super 8 and Motel 6. The rooms are well done with teak floors (probably fake, but give them a warm appearance) and nice furniture. The staff were friendly and the location quiet, being away from main street.

We arrived quite late but the lady at check in was still very pleasant and helpful. When we got to our room, it was small but everything was there that we... More

I picked this place for the price (low) and the reviews (good) and was more than pleased with what we experienced. Super helpful and friendly people, and a great room. Highly recommended. They are making me say more so I will say the decor is well thought out (nice photos) and the towels are thick, No plastic cups or glasses,... More

The name "El Rancho" put us off, but the reviews persuaded us to book. The reception area was smelly and small which raised flags, but check-in was smooth, friendly staff, the room was great: we have no regrets. The bathroom could be improved a little bit, the kitchen was also slightly tired, but both did the job. The beds were... More

Newly remodeled rooms, carpet has been replaced with laminate flooring, additionof modern décor and furnishings. Defintely worth the price, just off the main road. We stayed 2 nights in the bungalow, 2 bed room with full kitchen. Expect quiet sleep with all that you need. New staff are friendly and attentive to get whatever is it you may need.

I was looking for lodging in Bishop via the Internet when I came across the El Rancho. I wanted to avoid the motel chains and fix something a bit more classic. The reviews I read were all very favorable so I thought It'd be worth it to give the place a go. As soon as I opened the door I... More
