“bring a gas mask”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2008

nice rooms EXCEPT they smell like the cheap soap syndrome so BAD you have to keep the window open
the whole way. Otherwise you might get sick..
Stay somewhere else until they fix this crap...

This is a clean motel. Pretty basic, but no problems. The property could probably use refresh, but it is clean. Front desk service was OK. The location is nice and convenient... pretty much in the center of town.

We always stay at the best place in town, Creekside, when we pass through Bishop, but there was 'no room at the Inn' this time...for less than $140, that is. The Comfort Inn said their rate was $89.99 for any size room, so we thought we'd give it a try.

All the ground floor rooms were taken by the time we got there except for a room with a Queen bed a couple doors from the office. It was really small for $89.99, but it was very clean and had a fresh scent. (I have a good honker and if at first sniff it doesn't pass, I'm outta there.) For the same price, we could have a larger room with a King bed on the 2nd fl. (walk-up). It was definitely bigger and also very clean, but it was a trek to get up there even without luggage, and I noticed that the floorboards in the room squeaked with every step. We decided on the smaller room on the ground floor.

Some nice touches were the faux granite (laminate?) shower walls, the curved curtain rod which extended out to give more room in the shower, the clear panel in the shower curtain which allowed for more light and less claustrophobia, and a subtle but effective night-light located on the phone unit (other than the message light). It really helped in the middle of the night when heading for the bathroom. There was the usual coffee set-up, micro, fridge, etc.; and the bed was comfortable. The window A/C kept the temp down but was a bit noisy, so out came the foam earplugs, and restful sleep followed.

On the down side, the blackout drape did not have a separate filmy curtain which allows light in but blocks the view from those outside, so passersby would look into the room as they walked by. Yet, to close the curtain put the room in darkness in the middle of the day. Management should consider applying a tinted window film. It allows light in but is reflective during the day, and guests would be more comfortable even with the drapes open.

The continental breakfast the next morning held no surprises, but the make-it-yourself Belgium waffles cooked up restaurant-perfect and were delicious. Fruit, cereals, juices, assorted pastries & muffins were plentiful and filling (and so was my creation of sliced hard-boiled egg sandwiched between a buttered toasted bagel!).

Would I stay there again? Quite possibly, but on the way out of town I stopped at the Dow Villa Motel and took a peek at a couple of the rooms. I liked what I saw.

Managers special was $89.95 + tax but we had a big room and a king size bed. The motel was really well located for walking to various bars and restaurants so we were pleased. The shower in the bathroom was mounted really low but the room was clean. Breakfast was one of the best we had on our travels with a waffle machine and bagels and muffins etc. Free coffee in the lobby 24hrs and a coffee maker in the room. Also free use of the PC in the lobby for checking your emails!

Room was smaller than expected. The jacuzzi was out of order with a few inches of stagnant water at the bottom. Maybe the source of the mosquitoes in our room. I managed to kill 2 of them but more must have come in through the gap between the A/C and the wall, because I woke up with mosquito bites. If you get a room with the A/C unit under the window you'll have to bunch up the drapes and stuff them onto the windowsill because they cover the A/C when you close them and all the cold air goes under the drapes and billows them out. No air goes into the room. The fridge is extremely small as is the microwave. The bathtub wouldn't drain during our showers. The drain lever wouldn't stay in the down position. Our reservation said we had Showtime free. If so, it wasn't on our TV. Breakfast? Wouldn't touch it. Went to the bakery down the street. Lack of an elevator doesn't help either. And the only entry driveway is located on the Northwest corner of a traffic signal intersection so if you're coming in from the South you have to go around the block to get to it. And the parking spaces are extremely narrow. Did I say, "OK, but some problems"? I guess it added up to quite a few problems. I know I will never stay there again.
