Walker River Lodge is centrally located in Bridgeport, California. My wife and I stayed one night in a Standard King room. The motel is pretty ordinary. The room was a bit dark but clean and we was not disturbed by traffic. The breakfast was quite okay.

Stayed only one night, wish I had more time! My room was spotlessly clean. the place is older but well maintained. Through the last decades hotels have added more stuff and bigger beds and TVs as travelers have demanded more. these older rooms weren't really built for all this ages ago, so the older rooms have gotten more crowded.

My daughter and I spent one night there just before Thanksgiving while visiting Bodie. While I have stayed here before years ago, it has been updated since then. The grounds are neatly manicured; the reception area was clean, featuring antiques and a nice little breakfast room. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the best part is that there are... More

Could be the worlds smallest bedroom and bathroom. Nothing to recommend it other than it was dry and warm. Would try someplace else next time we need a room in Bridgeport. Town was shut down fot the season.

We had a room with riverview. The room was spacious and comfortable. The furniture are rustic but had there charm. It was clean. The pool and the hot tub with mountain view is also wonderful. We enjoyed our night on our trip from Yosemite NP to Crater lake NP.

My husband and I spent 2 nights here in a king room with a back deck that faced the river. This is an older property and low budget. While part of the room had been updated like furniture and tile entry, other parts like the bathroom door and sink and shower faucets were old and rusted. Also the back decks... More

I guess I wasn't as charmed by this place as other reviewers. My room smelled of pet urine, I tried to air out the room but the smell never left. I stayed for 2 nights and when I returned the following afternoon the stench was awful. Most people next to me had dogs and that's fine, but someone needs to... More

Our king room on the river was quiet and comfortable with good linens and all the basics for a good night's sleep. This isn't a fancy place. The rooms are on the small side and simply but attractively furnished. We appreciated the good shower and being right across the street from a GREAT breakfast place. Looking out at the river...

The Walker River Lodge is a nice little motel right on Highway 395, but many of the rooms face north, away from the highway and are on the Walker River, which is, in actuality, a small creek. There is a nice lawn and several barbecues where you can cook your dinner, if so inclined. The rooms are nice and clean.... More

Check in was easy, very nice old style motel. Owners have done a nice job making it comfortable. Love the little patio overlooking the river. Was nice to be able to walk through town to see all of the historic landmarks and for dinner. Easy access Wifi for those who want. Would definitely recommend to a friend. Only thing negative...
