We came from Yosemite National Park and needed a place to stay. It's in the most adorable, quaint town. Every building was all decked out for the 4th of July. We came in just as the man was about to leave for the night. He kindly gave us a room with three full-sized beds for a discounted price,and told us... More

I have been making this trip over the Sierras for fifteen years now. The Inn is a relaxing place to enjoy a couple of cocktails and have a great dinner with a good nights sleep. I have referred many of my friends to this place with great results. I can't say enough good things about the B.P.I !

Pretty disappointing. I would never stay at this hotel again. The rooms in the main building are tiny, extremely hot and there are no plugs in them, so forget about charging your phones or cameras unless you do it at the reception.

Thanks for the review. The room you rented is one of ten that were built around the early 1890's. They do not have bathrooms in the room, nor do they have plugs, TV's or other amenities as you pointed out. They are also very clean and very inexpensive. We have other choices, including rooms in our historic hotel with private... More

Stayed in one of the rooms above the restaurant with shared bathrooms. The room was clean but small and very simple. The bathrooms were clean apart from the stained grout in the showers. There is no air con or a fan in the rooms so they are quite hot and stuffy. The mattress was comfortable but the bed frame was... More

My wife and I visited the Bridgeport Inn for lunch on our way through the town of Bridgeport, CA. The Inn itself is part of a nice old house and includes both a restaurant and bar. We were seated more slowly than we expected and given a couple of seats in the main room. We ordered ice teas and those... More

Located on main street, (probably the only Street!), this motel has reasonably priced rooms. Like every motel in the USA, the walls are thin. Room heater is barely adequate. These are basically places to keep extra stuff and sleep, while you spend most of the day outside, in the beautiful countryside. Why spend a lot of money on a room... More

Thanks for the review. Don't know the room you stayed in, but we will check all heaters in the motel building just to make sure. They are powerful and fast to provide really good heat, so it's possible one might need repair. Hope you come again. Bob Peters More

We were going to visit the ghost town of Bodie and this hotel was the only place that had any rooms available. It is a very old but pleasently updated hotel. Our rooms were recently painted with wainscoat and border wallpaper added. The rooms were bright, simple and cheery. There is no bathroom in the rooms and they are at... More

This Inn is on the road less travelled on the east side of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Much older facility that is well maintained but be aware that not all bathrooms have electricity, so hair drying is a challenge. Office is closed for early check-in until 2pm, doesn't open in the morning until 8am. On-site restaurant is a cut above... More
