Very happy with the stay. Average continental breakfast, but there is coffee, juice and snacks in the office 24 hrs a day, including fresh popcorn. Next door to... 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

OK for a quick overnight stay! Rooms were reasonably clean, it was a quiet location, with easy parking. The staff is friendly. We had a 2-queen, non-smoking room, everything fine. Would stay here again.

We found the room very clean, the bed comfortable and the staff very helpful. The continental breakfast was less than marginal for us. We had a problem with staying in a non-smoking room and people standing outside the room smoking. At the bottom of the stairs they were smoking and the smoke went DIRECTLY up to our room. Possibly they... More

Don't stay here, there were cockroaches and ants in the bathroom... Some bugs were living in our towels so we could't use them and we could hear our neighbours going "pee" or something... You have to turn off the fridge and a/c 'cause otherwise you won't find sleep (too loud) Worst experience ever - and we have been to asia... More

This is our stop on our way to Lake Tahoe and then on our way back home, so the hotel offers us everything we needed. Clean and comfortable, so no complaints. Everything was in walking distance.Will come back

We stayed here on June 6, when it was very warm. The air conditioner was blowing warm air. About 6 p.m., I called the front desk and within an hour, with minimum fuss, we had a new A/C unit! Our dog was with us so we stayed in a pet room with a very convenient large grassy area. The room... More
