4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This place offered us an adequate room with a wonderful king bed. It was clean and the desk staff was pleasant. Fine for a short stay. Some of the rooms front along the Walker River and they might be a better choice for a longer stay.

Once again, I wish we had a 7 point scale as the Walker River Lodge is "Good" - above "Average", but not quite "Very good". The lodge has a great location in the town and excellent proximity to the many sights including Bodie. The breakfast was surprisingly good - excellent coffee and bagels. There is a nice pool area.

Thank you for the review. On your next stay, try one of our river view rooms. They are nice and bright with a sliding glass door that opens onto a deck overlooking the Walker river! More

We just stayed at the lodge this past week for an overnight on our way to June Lake; two adults and three children under the age of 6. We booked at the last minute AND were arriving late at night -- neither of which was a problem for the motel. The room accommodations were great and wow! the view we... More

Room was a little bit small but furnished in a country rustic style (well appreciated!). Breakfast ok, but too little place for all guests. Anyway trays are provided to carry your breakfast to your room: wonderful idea! Negative: rooms are badly insolated. We heard the neighbour taking his shower early in the morning sounding as a rain of pebbles.

This lodge is sitting on the banks of Walker River in Bridgeport, CA and is surrounded by beautiful mountains. The temperature is cool and pleasant even in late June. A nice breakfast is provided along with room. Stay here before entering Death Valley.

The room we booked included a king sized bed. Not much room for anything else in the room. We paid over $150 for this tiny room. Overpriced for a bed. Continental breakfast was decent for the size the lodge.

We are sorry you thought the room was overpriced. We only have 6 months out of the year that are busy and this is our high season. We are also sorry you thought the room was a little small - We try to put the amenities in the room that most guests enjoy, a king sized bed, flat screen tv,... More

This past weekend me & a friend lucked out getting 2 rooms at Walker River Lodge, we actually had a booking in Silver Maple Inn but they overbooked & last minute didn't have rooms for us so fortunate for us the booking was transferred to Walker River Lodge. Rooms were nice, comfy and clean as well as a nice continental... More

This looks like a run-of-the-mill small-town motel, in a town with few options. But looks are deceiving. Yes, the room is structurally a roadside motel room, but we had a huge, comfortable King bed, in a good-sized room, excellent tv choices, and THE BEST WI-FI we have ever had in any hotel, motel, or b&b. On a long vacation, when... More

We had the 2 rooms with the Kitchenette and they were perfect for our stay- in fact I wish I could have stayed a few more days! The room was clean and comfortable- well stocked with dishes -full size appliances- Could have had a few meals right at the room and sat on the deck. The room had 2 bedrooms... More

Thank you for the nice review! We updated those rooms 2 years ago, so it was nice to hear the compliments. We are in the process of getting more outdoor chairs to accommodate our suites. It's a process because the closest home improvement store is 1 1/2 hours away! But we love living here and providing a nice place to... More
