“Excellent place to get some rest after a busy day at Yosemite...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We spent the entire day in Yosemite, and we were absolutely tired. So it was nice to arrive at around 8 PM and have the front desk attendant tell one that they had been waiting for us. The lady there (Cheryl) was very welcoming.

The room had a decent size, and although the decor is a bit dated (mid 80's maybe?), the room was impeccably clean. Having a nice place for dinner right across the street made things easier (we went to Imperial Gourmet, which was very nice as well)

Breakfast included all basic food groups and although certainly not a luxury buffet, it was diverse enough to satisfy basic morning breakfast cravings.

In summary, this is a nice welcoming place at which to spend an evening after a long day in the Sierras or the California desert.

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.

Room Tip: Definitely request a room toward the back of the property. The motel sits right by a busy road and t...

We were traveling around Nevada on a sightseeing tour which led us to Death Valley, California. Due to our location the first day, and the lack of accommodation in Death Valley, we drove to Bishop so we could continue South in Death Valley the following day.
There were a couple of awful looking motels in town along with the casino hotel and a few other places. When we inquired about the accommodation in one location, it seemed like all the "nice" places had the same ownership.
Guess what that means? No real competition so you pays what they asks.....No AAA, senior discounts, etc. No free breakfast, internet, etc you would normally find in a town this size.
We had a bit of fun imagining Kayser Soze (from "The Usual Suspects") running this town.....
Back to the motel....it was satisfactory for our needs but pricey considering the town. I think they make a big mistake by over-charging for mediocre lodging since I'm sure a lot of travelers will just head straight past Bishop and stay in Pahrump. That would be my plan next time.

Room Tip: This is just a motel so probably best to stay back from the main road. Pool is in a central location...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here en route to Las Vegas. The rooms are modern and very comfortable. They are also significantly larger than other motels we have stayed in. Staff were friendly and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

This was one of the best Comfort Inns we've stayed in.. Fairly recently updated, so furnishings and decor very appealing. The staff was very helpful and breakfast exceeded our expectations. Shower was great. Didn't use the microwave and mini-fridge, but appreciated they were there. Will definitely stay there again.

The Comfort Inn in Bishop was as good as any we have ever stayed. It was clean and error free. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was adequate. We will stay there again. There are other hotels in town, but this one seemed to be the best value and the most welcoming.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same and all have new beds and are clean. Access to the internet was spotty at fi...

Ok, this is not the Ritz or the 4 Seasons. But it's a great cheap place to stay when passing through. Customer service is great, Wifi is very fast, Cable TV is clear. Bed was comfortable and the hotel was quiet. Room was a little musty when I first walked in, but it cleared pretty quick when I turned on the fan.

Location is perfect - off main street. Oh yeah, and it's cheaper than other hotels down the strip. Highly recommended.
