“What a surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

This was a great Motel 6. The room had been remodeled and were very quiet; pets were welcome with no extra charge. Probably the best feature was the desk clerk, Jesus. He was friendly, welcoming and very helpful.

We staid in this motel August 21. It is nice and clean but it was so horrible noisy! Do not buy a room on the first floor! You will hear every step of the person about you! Better to add $ 30 and go somewhere else. You will have a good night sleep. Price is $80 per night!!! I could stay in Las Vegas at 4 star hotel not in MOTEL!!! $50 would be ok for that little town. I do not understand why it was so expensive?

Room Tip: ASK FOR THE SECOND FLOOR!!! and no neighbors around you.

My high rating of this motel is made in comparison to other motels in this price range, including Motel 6 locations I've stayed in over last 10 years. I knew before making the reservation for one night as I was traveling from the So Cal to Reno NV, that this location was completely remodeled at the beginning of the year with a new operator. I find many Motel 6 locations going thru gradual or partial remodeling this year. The room exceeded my expectations and my only concern I had was the shower, probably because of the fully book motel with the guests using water at 7:30 AM, it went multiple times from ice cold to boiling hot during a less than 10 minute usage. Because of room quality and pricing, I would probably stay there again if passing thru Bishop.

Room Tip: Make reservations for this Motel 6 location in advance as possible, it seems to be extremely popular...

Huge room. No extra furnishing but you could dance. Large refrigerator and microwave. Free and unlimited wireless. Legitamate referral to a very good Italian restaurant with 10% off. Desk called a few minutes after check in to be sure all was ok.

Arriving late we jumped out of the long line at the next door Best Western and went over to Motel 6. We did not regret! Decent rates and great rooms that were recently refurbished in a more European style - no more dirty carpets! Room was spotless and quite large. Staff was helpful and directed us to Vagabond Inn across the street to do laundry as the machines at Motel 6 were being repared. They also gave good advice on local dining. Would definitely stay there again.

This is my first time to stay in a motel with a laminated floor, and I really liked it. Perhaps also because the motel was recently remodeled, there really weren't any odors in the room, including none of that stuff that is usually sprayed to cover up undesirable smells. The room was basic though large, so there was extra space. No painting on the walls yet. My only complaint was that it was dark in the room unless you open the curtain to let in outside light during the day. There are two reading lights on either side of the king size bed, and the main light is behind the TV. There are, however, bright lights in the bathroom and sink area. The pool is tiny but refreshing after a hot day on the road.

Dear ladylodger,

We are very happy that you enjoyed our Motel 6 in Bishop! We acquired the hotel in January, 2013. We assessed the property and felt that it was in a desperate need of renovations; we basically gutted each of our rooms and started over. From the 32" flat-panel TVs to laminate floors to new beds to new bedding package to new stone vanity areas and including our lobby, we redesigned our Motel 6 so we could exceed the expectations of our guests. And last week, we just recently installed new fridges and microwaves to each of our rooms. In addition, we have negotiated with Denny's Diner (across the street) - they will offer our guests a 10% discount when you show them your room key. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you soon!

we spent only one night. Rather clean even if after taking a shower, my feet got dirty walking around the bathroom, I ended up laying towels down on the floor everywhere I stepped. Front desk was nice enough and helpful.
