Although breakfast included it was quite limited. Staff nice with good recommendations for local restaurants. Good location for death valley and Yosemite National Park. Walking distance to town shops and restaurants.

We stopped here for our first leg of a long family road trip. We weren't arriving until 1AM and the office attendant that greeted us was very friendly. The room was perfect for us, comfortable and the breakfast was just right. I would definitely stay again and recommend this chain of hotels.

We have stayed at VI Bishop in years past, and every year it seems to be more & more run down. The location is great, close to restaurants, but the motel itself is disappointing. The pool has never been warm enough, and the tiles are generally dirty. On this trip our room had several problems including a bathroom door that... More

Summary, we could not find much sleep, but rooms were clean and breakfast was somehow OK. Unplanned early weak up before 6a.m. due to noise (talks and cars) in front of our room (ground floor). In addition we heard each step due to noisy floorborads in the room above us, late night and early morning, very squeaky and creaking noise.... More

To rest on the road between Las Vegas and Curry Village so we chose to stay in Bishop. We had no idea that the city was beautifully situated, had a fantastic micro-brewery and a wonderful Vagabond Inn. A cannon which we gladly share with you

Have to agree with others - nothing flash but clean and tidy, polite staff, convenient location, ( next to Denny's ) and although a bit pricey it was high season and Bishop was busy. Would recommend for a one night stop on a road trip.

Great place to stay. We are a family of 4 and stopped for 1 night after a very long journey. Hotel was basic but very clean and comfortable. Kids loved the pool. The hotel is right next door to Denny's so we popped in there for a large breakfast too. All in all a perfect stopover after driving through Death... More

After crossing the Death Valley we arrived at this hotel. You don´t find any luxury in this place and everything is very simple. But it´s all you need to rest in the middle of your road trip. You don´t need anything more than a good shower and clean beds. You have to remember that it´s an economical option but you... More

The room was clean. The bathroom was tiny, but clean. The towels were thin, but clean. There were plenty of electrical outlets. The wifi was available but we could not connect all of them. We seemed to be limited to 2. The mattresses needed to be replaced. Construction is going on to add more modern rooms, which will help. They... More
