Nice clean unit. Complex was under construction so a little noisy. To be expected though. Staff were nice but not helpful if you talked to maids and maintenance crews because none of them spoke English. It was a pretty good place to stay. Would come and stay again.

We came into Bishop for the day and decided to check in at the Vagabond Inn. We knew they were remodeling hers (still are) but thought we would give them a try. And we were pleasantly surprised with the room. New bed new carpet, drapes, tv, bathroom sink and paint. It was well done, insulated and glad we were able... More

We were in town to go to a celebration of life for a long time resident and quite a few of our group stayed at this location. Comfortable rooms. I gave it a 4 out of 5 because the website said the rooms were all renovated but the section we were in definitively were not. It appears renovations are still... More

We arrived Friday midnight and the staff was friendly, in fact they were friendly the entire visit. The room was decent. Local folklore has it that half this place burned down recently. The room looks as if the owner is doing renovations himself. In fact Saturday morning, I saw him working in one of the rooms. It's a pretty great... More

We just returned from another get visit with family in Bishop CA. The Vagabond Inn offers very clean rooms and comfortable beds and great rates. The staff is very friendly and helpful. And a bonus is they are right next to Denny's restaurant which offers a 10% per cent discount when you show your room key.

The staff was friendly and very helpful, the room was big, the beds good, the breakfast a disaster. Not the most scenic town but a good base for tours to North and Sabrina Lakes, Mammoth Lakes, Bristlecone Forest. Do visit the Erik Schat Bakery, the best bread and sandwiches on the Hwy 395, and if you like sweet stuff it's... More

Spent 5 days here climbing in nearby Owens River Gorge, this is stunning with excellent climbing. Bishop is quaint little town, lots of other outdoor activities around, lots of hiking walks, fishing, near Mount Whitney, Alabama Hills, Britle Cone Pine Park etc.

This motel provided us with everything we needed for an overnight stay. It was easy to park, had several restaurants within walking distance and the breakfast was fine. There were no views from our room but the views of the mountains a short walk up the road were amazing.
