Needed a place to stay for a couple nights not far from Bishop. Big Pine is only 15 - 20 minutes down the road. Decided to try Bristlecone Motel. First off, price was only $104 a night, which was substantially less than a comparable place in Bishop (summer weekends are booked up fast). Second, room was big. Two fulls and... More

Check-in and check-out was easy and friendly. Comfortable bed and pillow. However carpet was kinda dirty and the place did not feel very clean. But for the price and for one night, it was OK. It was also quiet which is a plus. The 3 stars only goes because the place needs to be updated.

We stayed at the Bristlecone manor for one night. We slept in the mobile/module home. It was very big and clean. The ac was very noisy because the windows couldn't close properly. The light in the bedroom with the 2 single beds didn't work.

A true roadside motel. Run by a nice young family. They bought the motel and the gas station and built themselves a nice store along with it. Room is clean, typical of roadside hotels, air not too loud. Bed comfortable. We had room 19, back in a quiet corner. Micro-wave, coffee, wi-fi... and a store real close for treats. All... More

Staying in Big Pine CA leaves very few choices. Bristlecone Cone is not a good choice either. The cleanliness of the room, along with extremely old, lumpy Matresses, leave something to be desired. Booker be ware!

Office is out of gas station (cheaper gas than across street). The place was old, no surprise. Could have been cleaner. Had a large bathroom and a fridge. You could still hear the road, but not horrible.

This is a very nice small motel. It is very quiet. Has good WiFi and every thing you need for a good night rest. The owners will do what ever you need. There is a café close by that is very good. I would stay there again.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is within walking distance to the three dining options in town. The gas station, mini market, and hardware store that is part of the motel is convenient as well. They are open late, and early and I was able to get a plastic fork and paper plate when needed and ice was... More
