Made a reservation via phone on 7/1 for a handicap room for the night of 8/5. When i called on 7/31 to confirm that the handicap room was being held for me, I was told that someone had booked that room for a week and it was the only handicap room they had. I cancelled and booked with another establishment.... More

We are very sorry the handicapped room was already rented on the night you requested. We are very handicapped friendly, we have all the necessary requirements per California law. Due to the fact that you did not even stay, I don't know how you could have reviewed our establishment, in its entirety - we hope you can come again and... More

Just up there for two nights - snapped a couple of tickets for one of three nights a year Bodie is open until 10P. Actually, our parents stayed at this hotel some 40+ years ago - can see why they enjoyed it. Is your old time, drive up to your door, motor lodge. Wonderful! We requested a King/water view -... More

For those of us who prefer the local motel/hotel to camping the Walker Inn on the River more than meets expectations where cell phone reception is spotty or non-existent. My attraction to Bridgeport is the Travertine Mineral Springs just a very short jaunt from the motel. My room was located right on the river with a porch and patio chairs... More

An average room in a small town provided a good overnight stop while travelling from Yosemite to San Fran. In room coffee was welcome and the advice on local restaurants good. Complimentary breakfast was more than adequate start to the day.

We stayed here on the way to visit the nearby ghost town at Bodie, CA. We were delighted with our clean, quiet suite overlooking the river. It was a good size and very comfortable. Everyone at this motel was pleasant, the continental breakfast was simple but good, and Bridgeport was the perfect first stop on our epic road trip down... More

Thank you for the review! Sometimes March and early April is a really nice time to come to Bridgeport - prices are still in the off season mode. There are not a lot of visitors yet. When the passes open, more visitors come to our area and prices go up. More

This is an older motel which is kept up very well. The rooms were large and clean. The property backs up onto a creek and there are mountain views all around the town. This looked to us like the best motel in this little town. The motel was very quiet and we enjoyed our stay.

If you are driving up or down hwy 395, the Walker River Lodge is a great find, especially if you are planning to spend some time at Travertine Hot Springs. We had originally planned on stopping in Lee Vining on our way north, but discovered not much is open there in earlyJanuary. What a relief to pull into Bridgeport and... More

In the middle of nowhere, what a chance to get this nice place for a good night. It was clean and quiet, we loved this place even if we did not spend too much time. I would just suggest to owners to talk more about the region , what to see, .. Nice motel
