We traveled through Bridgeport for a day and stayed here. Upon check owner was friendly and helpful about the area. The rooms were very clean. This is an older motel but kept up. They allow you to fill your ice chest for free. Very quiet place. A good place to stay when visiting Bodie or just for a short get... More

We loved hearing about your enjoyable stay. Yes, Bridgeport being so close to Bodie State Historical Park is a plus. Generally, our guests are quite pleased with our quiet motel and the unlimited ice. Please come again if you're in our area. More

I have been running art workshops for 25 years, traveling to senic spots with groups of painters to capture the local sites. While Bridgport has more than it's fair share of incredible landscapes to paint, the Redwood Motel is anything but beautiful. The owner seems to have anger issues that exceed anything I have encountered in dealing with Motel management!... More

We are sorry that you had an unpleasant experience and that a simple misunderstanding was exaggerated to such a degree. In this response, I hope to add clarity to the situation by addressing the underlying issue ended in this negative review.

The place is clean, but boy are the walls thin! All night I could hear the neighbor's tv and their yawns! I had to put head phones on to drown out their noises. In the morning, when the cleaning staff was cleaning the rooms, it sounded as if they were vacuuming in our room. The beds are absolutely horrible! I... More

Typically guests enjoy their clean, quiet rooms and 7 restaurants within walking distance of our motel. However, we are surprised to read of your uncomfortable bed (as guests tend to tell us how comfortable they are during their stay). Had we known the situation then, we would have been happy to move you to another room. The pitter-patter of housekeeping... More

Thank you for your positive review. We appreciate hearing that you enjoyed your stay at the Redwood Motel. Typically guests love that the rooms are clean, quiet, and within walking distance of seven (7) restaurants and additional shops. Bridgeport itself is so close to Bodie State Historical Park, Mono Lake, Virginia Lakes, and Twin Lakes so our motel is a... More

We stay here every year as we make our way up and down 395. It is an older motel, but always very clean and comfortable. The rooms are small, but well appointed with a fridge and micro and tv. They close down early Dec-March, which I never knew til this year because the holiday fell so late on the calendar.... More

We stayed one night booked on day before arriving. Owner quoted one price 5 days before, then increased it when I booked on day! Very dated, but good size, clean, and quirky owner offered us juice and pastries for the morning, and as we're English offered us tea instead of coffee, sweet. These are wooden rooms, so unfortunately we were... More

We decided to stay here based on the lonely planet book and it was a lovely stay. The owner was very knowledgable about the local area and gave us a map to the local hot springs which were superb! The room was nice but the air conditioning was very loud but the ceiling fan worked a treat. The location is... More

We thank Lonely Planet for the referral and you for your positive review. It sounds like you enjoyed the local hot springs (2 locations to choose from) during your stay. We find that placing the A/C on a medium setting cools the room more efficiently and is quieter for our guests. Please consider staying with us at the Redwood Motel... More

I stayed here for one night before driving over Tioga pass to Yosemite National Park. It did look a bit scruffy from the outside, but the room was completely clean, the owner was reasonably friendly and gave good advice on where to eat in Bridgeport. Everything in the room worked, including the coffee maker, tv and fridge. The air conditioner... More

I have stayed here three times, for a night each time, just passing through Bridgeport. The most recent trip, this past July 16, the price ($74) was very reasonable for this neck of the woods, where prices can be much higher in "high season" (I'm always there in June-August). I don't understand the "rude" comments, though I'm not contesting what... More

Three stars is a bit generous for this motel. Anyplace else, it would be a solid two. But one has to re-think the rating system for Bridgeport. After all, this is a town that invented the term "no-frills". And The Redwood Motel is just that; an ok, basic motel that doesn't pretend to be anything else. My initial impression of... More
