Was a nice place to stay, facility was updated and everything looks really new. Rooms were pretty clean and nice but the shower curtain didn't work great. Staff was very friendly. Only stayed one night but would stay again next season.

Vagabond Inn in Bishop is the greatest place to stay. Everyone is very nice and they really try and accommodate you! The prices are reasonable too. The room was remodeled and very up to date. If you like Denny's it's right next door so you can walk to eat. Denny's actually will give you a discount if you are staying...

However, they gave us the room right next to the staircase, so we heard everybody stomping up and down the stairs. It did not make for a restful sleep. If you do stay here, I suggest not...
