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

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

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

We were passing through on our way to Lake Tahoe and needed a place to stay that night and it was the only hotel with availability. We were charged $100 for a room and a hotel in horrible condition. We took the back entrance to the hotel and we could see ply wood floors when we opened the hotel door... More

Don't stay here if you expect luxury. But, if you like historical places, this is a great place to stay for its character. We thought the room was in excellent shape considering the age of the building. The bed was surprisingly very comfortable, and the mild temperatures in Bridgeport allowed us to open the windows for a cool and calming... More

One stays here for its history and character, and you shouldn't expect all the modern luxuries. The decor is certainly unique, "bordello-chic" would probably be the closest description. Having visited Bodie just before reaching Bridgeport, this building is in remarkably good condition considering its contemporaries in the desert. It is still moderately rickety, and certainly my bed was, being partly... More
