Very friendly and accommodating. Left some items in our room after we checked out and they gathered them up so that they could be picked up for mailing to us. Pet friendly and nice BBQ area and pool!!

I've stayed at this motel numerous times in the past on semi-annual fishing trips. Since the fire last year, which partially destroyed the motel, Their rates have skyrocketed and the quality of the breakfast has seriously deteriorated. The place was average before. Now, there are better and cheaper places to stay in the Bishop area.

Booked this place for a quick weekend fishing trip and was pleasantly surprised how they cater to the seasonal fishing crowd. There is an on-site fish cleaning station and a large freezer on the premises to store your fish. There's a biggest fish of the day discount that can be applied to your stay which I won one day.

We found the Vagabond Inn thanks to previous Trip Advisor reviews. We had just finished a day touring Yosemite National Park. We were shocked to find such luxury accommodations in the small town of Bishop. The beds were king size and brand new. The room was immaculate as was the entire property. The breakfast was quite impressive. We highly recommend... More

Horrible place to stay!!!! Don't stay at this hell hole!!! Loud refrigerator had to be unplugged. Loud Air Conditioner had to be turned off to sleep. This place seems to collect all the scum in Bishop and they were in the room next to mine.

Stayed there for 1 night, on route form Yosemite to Las Vegas. Very clean hotel, there a working on upgrading, even attaching a new building. Our room was a bit outdated, but amazingly clean. Breakfast really basic, but enough to get you on the road.

The staff here are extremely friendly and helpful. We had a nightmare situation with our rental car while driving through the town and had to make a last-minute reservation. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, allowing us to use their phones and letting us check out late. The rooms are recently furnished and comfortable. The Denny's next door gives... More
