“The place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

We were iin Bishop for some training and went up without a reservation. I had read some good reviews for this motel so we walked in to get a room. We took the king bed with a full kitchen, this was what was available. It is a older property motel 1950's style. Very cute and well taken care of. The rooms were impeccably clean and nice. The full kitchen had a gas stove, sink with cabinets and a nice table with a couple of chairs. The bathroom was awesome. I just love the 50's style with the pink and white tiles. Very clean. They had soap and a conditioning shampoo. The kitchen also had dish soap and wash rags. Although we did not actually use the kitchen it was well equipped. The rooms do not have air conditioners but they do have swamp coolers. They worked great for me. Although I was a little worried if they would keep the room cool, they did. It actually got cold in the evening. The staff was friendly and helpful. You also got to park your car in front of your room. It is off the main road so it was nice and quiet but also walking distances to a few restaurants and a store. We will definitely stay here again when in Bishop.

Now that I have established that this motel does not compare with 4 Star Hotels let me describe our stay. We stopped in Bishop as a halfway sleep spot on our way to Reno and after spending several hours comparing hotels and motels in Bishop I followed the ratings on Trip Advisor and picked this motel because it was the #3 ranked hotel. After reading several reviews and looking at pictures I was ready for our stay, unfortunately my wife and kids did not agree. We arrived at 6:00 pm on a Saturday and found the office closed because the motel was full, I called the number listed on the sign and was directed to grab our key from the mailbox. Our room was small but featured a comfortable king bed and a separate double bed for my kids. They thought their bed was uncomfortable and their room was warm because there wasn't an air conditioning vent. The pool was great and was the highlight for our stay. The motel was quiet and we did not experience any problems during our stay. Since it was a Saturday night during the summer we paid $110 including tax and I would say that it was a bit overpriced considering the fact that the motel was old and a bit run down. In my opinion if you are looking for a decent place in Bishop for a quick overnight stay this place would be a decent choice.

Thank you for your comments, which we care about and listen to. We are an older property, that has many new upgrades including all new furniture ,flat screen t.v.'s , linens, and pillows, sitting chairs, carpet, and much more.. Our separate bed rooms, that include t.v.'s, are very popular. We keep our rooms super clean, offer free wifi and keep our prices very reasonable for our guests.

This is a really nice smaller property. The room was well equipped for our one night stay including a small fridge and microwave. This is a basic property, but certainly everything you need for a short, or even long stay.Very clean and quiet, but in a very good location.

We stayed here two weeks and we had a very good overall experience. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and cosy. The whole place is dated but this is what somehow makes it charming. The kitchen of our room was clean but cooking equipment and crockery were rather limited and need replacement. We had a problem with the heater but this was quickly fixed by the owner.

In conclusion, I recommend this place which is an excellent value (especially for long stay) for Bishop, and I would stay there again with no hesitation.

We stayed here for two nights and were happy with our choice of motel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean, but we found it very dated. We had our own kitchen, but it appeared to date back to the 1950s! Cooking equipment and crockery rather limited (we had two none matching mugs, one of which was chipped!). Bathroom similarly in need of an update, though very clean. Gas heater in room was a little disconcerting; it was clearly very old and we were quite wary of prolonged use! Good value for money overall

Thank you for staying at our property. We are an original one story motel that has kept it's appeal, and have made the rooms modern, comfortable and convenient for staying in Bishop. All our kitchens are fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glasses, etc. unfortunately from time to time, customers will swipe some things from the pantry, we do apologize!! We have taken care of the kitchen you visited! . With Spring here we are continuing upgrading our property and hope you will visit us again!!

Clean, comfortable, quiet and no overpriced!
Highly recommended!
was only 60$ on Nw yrs eve!
Even had a kitchen!-microwave, fridge, sink, cabinets.

Walking distance to many coffee shops and restaurants too!

Only tiny comment: Rooms are VERY small.
Also get the Queen bed if you can, the full is almost too small for two people.
