...but only once. Boyfriend & I stayed here 3 years ago in 2012; & I still can't escape the memories. Genuinely scared all night, expecting a sociopath passing-by-on-the-highway-to come through the unlocked front door of the building,stride boldly past the unoccupied clerk desk (he went home after 9, though he promised he was a phone call away), padding quietly on...

Three years ago, I replaced all the mattresses with new name-brand, high quality mattresses. While the plumbing was replaced several years ago, some rooms require time for the hot water to reach proper temperature, up to a minute. As with all smaller hotels, fluctuations in hot/cold are experienced when several guests are using water at the same time. Built in... More

Have been staying at the Bodie Hotel for over 20 years . Great price about 1/2 or more of the other places in town. Great rustic feeling of what the old west may have been like. Rooms are always clean and the staff is friendly .Was driving thru and just had to stop. The hotel was built in about 1856... More

I thank you very much for your continued support and your kind words. As I have stated in many other replies on TripAdvisor, I strive to keep the hotel in excellent condition-as excellent as a 150+ years building can be! My staff and I pay great attention to detail and I am a daily part of the operation, even though... More

Everything is completely outdated, the shower is a trickle, and takes about 10 minutes for the hot water to get there. Anytime you use the toilet, you have to take the lid off and pull up on the float to stop it. The water is contaminated, and highly recommended not to even brush your teeth with it, let alone drink... More

I appreciate you taking the time to review the Bodie Hotel and am sorry for your experience here with us. We strive to keep the hotel clean and dust-free which is sometimes quite the task with the amount of wind and dust we get here in Bridgeport. After a long winter we spend extra time cleaning the entire hotel since... More

In the evening of Sept. 27th, my wife and I lived in Bodie Victorian Hotel (the hotel’s address is 281 Main St, CA). The boss’s relative accommodated us and through the phone, and she requested us to pay in cash. After that we entered Room 4, realizing there were no TV, no socket, no drinking water and no cable. What’s... More

I am very sorry that had an unpleasant experience at my hotel. I can assure readers that the plumbing was replaced to 21st century standards and is code compliant. NO pipes at my hotel are “rusted through”. The hot water sometimes takes up to minute to flow to room sinks and showers. Water pressure will fluctuate as multiple guests use... More

There are worse places to stay in this world. If I could I would rate this 2 1/2 stars. It's a step above poor but below average. I made my reservation for this hotel expecting to experience a historic finding. It's historic, it is a finding and it's quite an experience. When I spoke with the owner to make my... More

Thank you for taking the time write a review and let me know about your stay in the historic Bodie Hotel and I am very sorry that you had to wait for your room to be made up. After Labor Day we reduce our staff, many of whom do double time keeping the hotel and our next-door restaurant/bar running. I... More

Although we made our reservations months in advance we where not sure that we would be expected since they were unuable to send us a confirmation by email, fax or whatever. Nevertheless we where expected and enjoyed the vintage style of this hotel. One of the 3 bathrooms realy needed some renovation work

After making a reservation 3 months ahead of time and giving the owner my credit card #, I arrived to find out that my room was under renovation, and she had no record of my reservation to begin with. I was told that "I" should have called before arriving. (I should have called? Really? How about being professional?) With that... More

On our trip to Yosemite we stopped at Bridgeport the night before. As in many other small towns close to tourist attractions, we noticed a pretty high and conspiciously similar price level at all local hotels/inns. The guy at the Bodie hotel was very nice and helpful and after some haggling offered us a supposingly good deal (65$ ex tax).... More
