“Comfortable Stay in Bishop--Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We had a very pleasant stay at the Creekside Inn in Bishop and highly recommend it.

-Great location, downtown, within walking distance of most stores
-Large breakfast featuring an extensive assortment of hot and cold food, and we highly recommend the scones (they ran out one morning, so if you want scones, we recommend arriving early)
-Attendants were friendly and accommodating--provided restaurant suggestions
-Room was quiet and bed comfortable--we had a room facing the main street yet didn't hear any street traffic
-Swimming pool and sauna were very pleasant
-AC was QUIET
-Cookies after 7 pm
-Free laundry

Well, it's not the Ritz, but for Bishop, it is close enough! After a long day hiking or fishing, this is the ideal place to stay in Bishop.

Room Tip: The rooms in the back have a patio where you can dine next to the river

We stopped over for just a night between Yosemite and Death Valley and wish we'd allowed more time. There is an actual creek and a really nice pool. The hotel is very comfortable (decoration straight out of the 70s but all very clean and pleasant). We had two rooms, one of which had an unenviable carpark view (literally it opened straight onto the car park!) and NO wifi (you could get onto Carl's Junior if you stood by the window) and the other had a better view and perfect wifi.

The breakfast was very nice (though the breakfast area is very small for the number of people in the hotel) and the staff helpful and knowledgeable.

Bishop is a really nice town, I could have happily stayed an extra night here. From the hotel you can walk to lots of restaurants and shops, which makes a lovely change from most US towns.

Room Tip: Specify you don't want to be on the car park. We were room 103, which was not the best location...

Like most people, we were staying in Bishop on our way up to Yosemite and the Creekside Inn was a pleasant place to stay. The hotel was comfortable and breakfast was very good. We didn't end up with any view (the choices are supposedly Mountainside or Creekside), so it was a shame we didn't end up with either. Certainly not a deal-breaker though. Parking seemed a little limited, so if you get there late, you might struggle to park.

Four of us stayed here on August 12th and were so pleased to find a very comfortable room, including bed. Also it was a very clean. Our room was overlooking the creek and had a nice little balcony. After a long day on the road and a bad room the night before we were all very happy with this little respite. After settling in we were in good walking distance to go to dinner at Whiskey Creek Restaurant which we knew had good food. There actually were other restaurants that looked of interest in walking distance also. The ONLY slightly negative comments would be that there was not a microwave oven and the pillows didn't exactly meet our needs (luckily we travel with small pillows in case the pillows aren't good for our necks). We would definitely recommend this hotel to others and would stay any time we come through this area.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the creek seems like a must if possible but I'm sure all would be good.

I love a really nice hotel and I was scared when I booked this hotel. The price was as high as some of the nicer hotels I have stayed in but I was unsure. The tipping point for me was that many people had commented on the breakfast. I drove up to this hotel and was so pleasantly surprised. It has great curb appeal and is a beautiful place with nice rooms, a wonderful pool and hot tub and the best darn free hotel breakfast I have ever had. There were eggs, sausage, pastries, potatoes, cereal, fruit, it was just really nice and I figured covered any extra price for the room. I feel like the manager really cares about this hotel and I would stay here again, no question about it.

The hotel was easy to find, checking in went smoothly, no one offered me any assistance (I walk with a limp and a cane), the rooms are adequate, the hall hasn't been recarpeted in about forty years (it's not dirty nor threadbare, but the style is really awful), the breakfast is hearty, but the room in which it is served was overcrowded the morning that we ate there,

Upon arrival, the front desk clerk reacted adequately to a discrepancy between the 'booked' price and the price he was about to charge us, adjusting the charge price to what it said on our booking email. Parking was more than adequate. There was a rodeo on in town at the time (apparently there almost always is) but despite having a full house the motel was not too noisy.

Be warned: 'mountain-side' does not mean mountain-view. Though from the price of the room I suppose I should have guess that. We were put on the ground floor right in the corner of an 'L' shape. We could see the car park, and other guests coming and going literally right outside our door. I think I had read reviews warning me about this before I booked, however, so I guess it was my own fault. All I can say is, go for a creekside room!

The courtyard/creekside is super cute and the little creek has ducks in it. The outside pool and spa are lovely - when we were there, there was no-one in either the pool or spa, despite it being a very warm late afternoon.

The breakfast left quite a lot to be desired, but all-in-all it was a decent night in Bishop. The self-service laundry was very appreciated!

Lots of restaurants and cafes within walking distance too.
