Arrived last night to find the Hotel had unfortunately been closed due to a fire. The Vagabond guys had arranged for all bookings to stay at theTravelodge in Bishop instead. No email notification the guys at Vagabond though.

Basic, clean motel with a few extras. Breakfast was decent and simple. The pool was clean, as was the room for the most part. The bathroom had a few issues, and when I expressed my dissatisfaction, the manager was quick to take action. He also credited us back 25% of our payment for the night we spent there. A good... More

We had a reservation at the Vagabond Inn and arrived to find that the hotel had suffered a fire several days before. There was a kind lady on reception who greeted us and informed us that they had made replacement reservations for us at the local Travelodge. She remained professional and considerate despite being clearly upset over what has happened.... More

My family has stayed at the Vagabond Inn at Bishop so I was shocked and surprised to learn that during their recent fire neither the fire alarm or sprinklers were activated. My friends visiting from Brussels barely made it out alive during their "stay" at Vagabond Inn Bishop. At approx 8:30am the power went out. They checked the light switch,... More

Dear nevadacity, I am very sorry that you were in a section of the hotel where there was an unfortunate incident. Kindly email me at Niral@attunehospitality.com and I can certainly assist your family with their hospital bill and also their luggage that was lost in the fire. When the building was originally built, it did meet all the fire codes... More

Unfortunately, the Vagabond suffered severe damage on August 14, and a significant amount of the hotel was destroyed. Hopefully rebuilding will be able to start very soon, and the hotel will again be up and running.

Dear Inyogirl, We are equally devastated by the fire. We are currently working diligently with the city and the builders to get the hotel back up and running. We anticipate that about half of the hotel will be back in operations within a month. We anticipate that the other half of the hotel will be back in operations prior to... More

It won't blow you away but I found the Vagabond to be a very nice place and definitely one of the better stays in Bishop. I would stay here again the next time I am in town. The room had a microwave and a decent sized mini-fridge (see pics). The decor was a little worn and dated but I'm not... More

Quoted three different rates on line. Called to check for correct rate and could not understand the person who answered the phone. Finally he quoted me yet another rate. Decided not to make a reservation there. Called comfort inn and got a rate 20 dollars cheaper for same accommodations.

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
