First of all, the property looks OK from the outside. Overall, it is pretty nondescript and unremarkable...just a standard smallish Comfort Inn with doors connecting to the outside. The rooms and property were clean and functional, although there seemed to be a fairly wide gap in the fit around the door to our room. We received a good night's sleep in comfortable, clean beds.
The price, however, was fairly steep for an average motel of this nature, with very few amenities, in a small out-of-the-way town. With tax, we paid $120 for a standard double room (and this was the AAA rate). Not too inexpensive for an unexceptional, ordinary room! The breakfast area was very small with limited offerings, and the pool area was closed and locked, although it looked clean and functional to me.
Bishop has a nice main drag, with many shops and restaurants within walking distance. We dined at the Pizza Factory right down the street, which provided great pasta and pizza. Additionally, when in this town, you just have to visit Schat's Bakery right down the street. Remarkable stuff inside!
When we initially checked in, we were given a room near the front of the property. It proved to be very noisy, with a lot of busy traffic from cars and trucks literally yards away. We requested a room change immediately, and were given another near the rear of the motel. It was much more quiet, and noise was no longer an issue. Customer service was great, and Cheryl did a great job checking us in and out of the facility. I would probably stay here again, but would most likely try to negotiate a better price if possible.
