“Major Deception by La Quinta”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

No elevator to 2nd floor, we had 2 heavy suitcases to carry up a long, narrow staircase, the swimming pool did not exist, bathroom was the smallest we ever experienced in a hotel, the TV was not as advertised on LQ website.
We think it is a disservice that La Quinta allows this hotel to lower the standard of their franchise. Next time we stay in Bishop, it will not be at the La Quinta. One more thing, as far as value for your money(we paid $105/1 nite, 2 people), at least Motel 6 has elevators.



Quote from LQ website about this particular LQ in Bishop, CA;

"NEW! Flat-panel TVs with 30 channels of HD programming. Easy-access Plug-and-Play feature makes it simple to connect electronics."

Room Tip: If you are desparate to stay at this hotel, pick the 1st floor, there's no elevator.

I travel all over the world doing comedy hypnosis shows. The staff here (front desk and housekeeping) was extremely friendly and accommodating. The hotel lobby, breakfast area, lobby rest rooms and my room were very clean and well maintained. The water was hot. The sink and tub drained properly. The room was good sized, had good lighting and there was a big desk to work on. The hotel and staff was very quiet. It was walking distance to everything. The breakfast had great variety including yogurt, hot waffle machine and batter, fresh fruit cold cereal, etc. A super value for the money. I will stay there on my next trip to Bishop, CA.

Room Tip: I especially enjoyed the refrigerator and microwave. They were worth the extra money to me.

My spouse and I travel to Bishop often and are searching constantly for comfortable lodgings that are affordable. While not as nice as the Creekside or Holiday Inn Express, the La Quinta room was quiet, spacious and clean, with microwave and fridge that worked. Lack of a pool might be a problem for some. The breakfast was bare bones, but service was friendly. And the wifi worked reasonably well. Note, if you are going to Mammoth Lakes (as the location on the motel indicates): Bishop is at least 45 minutes away.

I go thru Bishop 5-6 times a year at least and for some reason have not stayed here before. I went to hotels.com a few hours before we got there and it had a half star above the others in the same price range so I booked it. It check in person was very friendly. The room was great! A nice comfy bed. The bathroom was very small, but not to small to get around in for a night. I would suggest you look at there services book in the room. It was 8pm and we were tried from the drive. We ordered delivery from the chinese rest and it was great! It also arrived in under ten minutes. I did not have breakfast but my husband did and said for what he had it was good.

Room Tip: no elevator so ask if you don't want to walk up one flight of stairs

My husband, 2 kids and I just had one night here on our way to Yosemite. It was pricey for what it was - we paid $135. Room was clean and had 2 double beds in but was very small - one of the beds was inches from the air conditioner - it was August so we needed to have it on. Consequently the person in that bed got pretty chilly, in addition it was blowing out dirt and dust and was really noisy so all in all it wasn't great. The bathroom was really small too. It is a 2 floor property and we had a room on the ground floor but there is no lift. There is wifi for those that need. Continental breakfast was included - bagels, waffles, fruit, cereal and hot drinks. There are quite a few restaurants within walking distance if you need a meal. Would probably stay somewhere else next time.

Room Tip: There is no lift so ground floor may be preferable.

We were only there for one night and it seemed all right to me, albeit a bit pricey. The room was clean, the bed was comfy and the breakfast was the same sort of thing you get everywhere.

Not much more to say really - it did the job.

Usually when we travel to Bishop we stay at the Creekside Inn but their prices were so high we decided to give La Quinta Inn a try. We got a good deal on a suite and overall the stay there was pleasant. Staff was friendly and efficient at check-in. Our room was clean, bed was comfortable. There was a small fridge, microwave oven and coffee maker in the room. My one complaint would be the size of the bathroom. Too small!!! No noise issues. The continental breakfast is so-so. Nothing special and the coffee is pretty weak. It's on the main street and you are within walking distance to restaurants, movie theater, and most importantly, Schaat's Bakery!
