The price was perfect, the rooms were clean and the beds comfy, the staff was very nice, the pool was great, the BBQ and fish cleaning areas were nice, close enough to town to walk places, if you were going to the fairgrounds it's right across the street so it's perfect, and like I titled this Great popcorn.

Vagabond in Bishop has been my family's go to motel for several years. They have just renovated the guest rooms which are very comfortable and clean. The front desk staff was helpful and friendly. This was a stopover trip between LA and Lake Tahoe. I would definately book the Vagabond on our next trip. Prices can be high in peak... More

Although this place looks nice from the outside, things didn't get off to a good start. There was no-one in reception when we arrived, and we had to wait about 15 mins. for someone to turn up! Though when they did finally arrive they were friendly and helpful. This is a typical budget motel, ideally positioned about 90 mins. drive... More

The place was nice - it was clean and maintained, but nothing out of the ordinary. It is a walking distance from the restaurants and shops. The internet was super slow though. The trucks that drive by at night woke us a few times, so if you are a light sleeper, be sure to bring earplugs.

We have stayed here before, in our travels through Bishop, CA. Good to book ahead, as the rooms fill up in the summer when lots of travelers pass through town! Rooms are adequate, and do have queen beds. There is a continental breakfast offered, and there is a Denny's conveniently located right next to the motel, which we enjoyed! Room... More

I was very pleased when I walked into our room to see clean carpet, newer looking paint and nice desk counter space. It was a very comfortable room for having 2 beds and a sitting chair. The beds and pillows were also comfortable making for a good-nights rest. My only complaints are that I couldn't print an email out at... More

Very neat, clean and a great place to stay! The pool area was kept nicely. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was centrally located to make it easy for shopping. It was an easy walk to the Fairgrounds.

I had stayed here before and enjoyed it. It's clean, quiet and convenient for me. Nice decor and well maintained. The staff is courteous and helpful. The breakfast room does not have much to offer if you don't want just bread. I will stay here again.

I've stayed here before, but it's been a few years, but one of the things that I liked is the motel is centrally located on the main drag going through Bishop. My room was nice and clean, and it was also quiet. The Continental breakfast was OK. For a short stay this would be a great place to be.
