This is a nonsmoking Inn and our room 204 reeked of cigarette smoke. When I mentioned it at the front desk upon leaving they said I should have let them know and they would have moved us to another room. They also were housing a number of firefighters that were fighting the Swall Meadows/Paradise fire and they thought that might... More

The staff was pleasant, the room was clean and the hotel is on the main street within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. Breakfast was okay. Bishop itself is a beautiful little town that I would hope to return to and spend more time hiking in the area.

We arrived late in the evening and wanted a kingsize bed, which was not available anymore, so they gave us a rooms with two queen sized bed and charged us the 10$ cheaper kingsize room, which we were very happy about. The stuff was very friendly. We also used the Jacuzzi, which was very pleasant after 8h of driving. With... More

The room was clean and comfortable. Front desk was very helpful; popcorn in the lobby was a nice touch. Staff was very efficient. Breakfast did not include any hot items, only muffins and bagels and cereal.

We stayed in an updated room that was nice, and clean. Housekeeping stopped by very early to check if we needed anything, and after hours the front staff quickly assisted. I would gladly stay again, cant beat the price for the accommodations.

Nice little hotel. Close to food options. Nice halfway stop to Palm Springs. Would definitely stay again. Liked that we got a discount at the Dennys located right next door. Cute Little town. Heater was kind of high in the room and hard to reach to adjust temperature without climbing. Otherwise not a bad stop.

When we visit family further south, Bishop is our "half-way" stop over and we choose the Vagabond Inn as our home away from home. Everyone is so friendly and do their very best to accommodate us "oldie but goodies"! The beds are comfortable, the rooms clean, the price is right and the popcorn is pretty good, too. It is a...

My first time in Bishop i stayed at the Vagabond with my dad. I had a really great time in the mountains and the hotel was perfect for our weekend trip. It has a laid back feeling to it and in the same parking lot as denny's. Its the only hotel I've ever stayed at in Bishop. If the fair... More
