I stayed in #105 for around $55 (w/AAA discount) for one night--you can't beat the price! The room was decorated with light green theme. It was clean and was actually a true "non-smoking room" (many older motels like this say non-smoking, but you can still smell the smoke from decades of being a dive motel; this was not the case...

What can I say. A bad experience. A/C didn't work, flying insects in the room, bathroom ceiling leaked water, coke machine non-op for dollar bills. This establishment has all the looks of a bad owner operator. Stay somewhere else in Bishop.

During our one night stay, we made a few informational visits (for wireless connection, coffee creamer, and bath tub, etc.) to the office in courteous manner, and consumed at most 5 minutes of their time. Shortly after these visits, the hotel staff called our room, telling us that we had made a lot of troubles, and that if we weren’t... More

Bishop is a pricey location, so I had to leave other better known chains out of consideration and settled for this one. Of course it is an old small place, but the reception was friendly, even cheerful, check-in went smoothly, the lady was very helpful with suggestions where to eat. The rooms were the usual motel-style, a bit worn, but... More

We stayed here inbetween driving from death valley and Yosemite. As a cheap stopover it's fine. The room was a decent size, restaurants close by, free wifi and generally quite comfortable. We weren't expecting luxury so it suited us fine. Our room and bedding was clean. My only issues were - the breakfast is not great & the pool looked... More

absolutely filthy place! Blood stained bed sheets .. stained chair, grey towels (had they been washed in the last couple of weeks or were there used for wiping the floor before ? unclear).. it is amazing that this filthy place got a license to operate. You better sleep in you car than sleep there! So basically, either skip Bishop altogether... More

We were passing through on the way to Vegas and only stayed in Bishop overnight. The price was great for a king room, free wifi a bonus. Great for what we were after. Recommend.

We presented a coupon at 2:30 p.m. in the afternoon before most other travelers checked in. Desk clerk said they had no room at coupon price and offered more expensive room. We looked in a open room before entering office. Room looked dingy and old. We passed and moved down the road a block to the Super 8.

This hotel is off the main drag so traffic noise is not a problem. The facility is old but newly renovated. My blanket hems were worn to the point of falling off but other wise clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast is a joke. The eating area is the lobby which is big enough for three people to stand in... More
