This motel is top rated in Bridgeport and probably deserves the reputation. Nothing really special, but it was clean, the owners were pleasant, just what you'd want for the price. Take a room further from the highway, if possible, as the trucks barrel by until after midnight!

We arrived late without a reservation and wanted to go to Bodie the next morning. Should have driven another hour to Hawthorne, Nevada and saved $100! I was just sick of driving that day. This is a nice rennovated old-style motel where you can park right in front of your door. The wi-fi service did not really work at all,... More

Bridgeport is a tiny town between Reno NV and the eastern entrance to Yosemite. Decided to book a night at Ruby Inn based on TA reviews. Large room and bath, all the amenities, clean and comfy. The pool is size of a postage stamp, but that's the only downside, beside the "breakfast" is just pastries and hard boiled eggs. Located... More

On our very last minute 8 day summer vacation flying in and out of Reno we went to San Francisco, Monterey, Yosemite, and on to stay on the East side of Yosemite in Bridgeport, CA and found this Gem of a place, the Ruby Inn. The room was extremely clean and bright. Older in style but it was a wonderful... More

I stayed here for a night along with a friend when we went to Yosemite National Park to hike the Mono Pass Trail (Tioga Pass). The hotel is very cozy and comfortable. It's one of the nicest small hotels I've ever stayed at. Totally recommend it ! 5 stars !

We were in town for a performance nearby. We checked in shortly after 3:30 PM, our room was ready prior to the 4 PM check-in. The room was rather small, but was very clean, it was right next to the highway, which concerned us. But upon closing the door the highway noise was not noticeable at all! The bathroom was... More

The staff was extremely helpful and booked us in a large room upstairs for the family of 4. The décor is older, but it seemed to be squeaky clean, which is important to me. The continental breakfast was ample with muffins, boiled eggs, coffee, etc.

The hotel is an road hotel common in Western States. Basic accomodation were clean and functional. Wifi was avaliable and there was a morning Continental... More

We had previously stayed at this property several years ago when it was flying the flag of a national chain. They have since gone independent, and we think it was a plus. Usually when we stay at a non branded hotel, it has been a disappointment. Not this time. While the room was small, it was clean and was well... More

We weren't meant to be staying in Bridgeport, but due to a snow storm had to hole up for the night and were recommended Ruby Inn, by the general store. We were greeted by a friendly face at the front desk and the chap helped us sort a room quickly so we could get in out of the bad weather.... More
