We just needed somewhere to stay between Zion National Park and San Francisco: we wanted to stay somewhere close to Yosemite too. It was good for one night. The pool was enjoyable and the place is on the main drag, so close to food places. The TV in the room is a bit old, but whatever.

When we come up to bishop several times a year to go fishing we are greatly satisfied with the clean rooms and friendly hospitality. Always very helpful with our questions about the area. In walking distance to several eateries. We don't stay anywhere else when we visit Bishop/ Mammoth. Sincerely- T. & G. Reid

It's a motel, period. Nothing fancy, but it was clean. The first room we were given did not have a good air conditioner. It sounded like a jet taking off and would not get cold. We asked to change rooms and were given one with a working AC. The bed was too soft and the pillows too thick to be... More

We needed a place half way between Anaheim and Reno, and the Vagabond inn filed the bill. The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was good and had a decent variety. For an older motel, we thought it was fantastic and would stay here again.

Stayed here twice within two years. Once with fishing buddies three nights. Slept, fished all day showered, dinner out X's 3. Breakfast at Denney's next door all three days. Vagabond breakfast is nothing to write home about. Second time, tried it with my wife. She did not like the bikers bar-b-qing outside their rooms with a couple of beers. The... More

Attempting to drive from Yosemite to Las Vegas, we realised we were getting tired and decided, on a whim, to stop the night in Bishop. Having dinner at the Denny's next door, we decided to try the Vagabond Inn and we're glad we did. Room was very clean and modern (i think some had old decor, but ours was nice... More

Small sleeping room, smaller bathroom, clean, comfortable bed, nice pool area. We usually stay at the Creekside Inn when we visit Bishop. Most visits between 4 and 5 days. Thought we'd try this as it was a lot cheaper. You get what you pay for. Breakfast was good...at the Denny's next door. Forget about the breakfast in the motel lobby.... More

We stayed here for an overnighter on our way to Lake Tahoe. It was a good stopping place. Room was very comfortable and clean. I liked the fact that the shower and toilet were in a separate room from the sink. You can easily walk to downtown Bishop where there are many eating locations. Breakfast was included with the room.... More
