This is a perfectly functional motel with a major fault: it has no warmth. Lots of signs tell you what not to do. There is a notice on the door knob saying do not push this button or you will lock yourself out. There is a card describing the TV remote saying do not press POWER, to use the ON/OFF... More

We are so sorry about the signs. It is almost like that comedian that says, "Here's your sign..." I think my managers haven't gotten so tired of explaining"normal" human behavior to human beings, that they thought that this was easier. We will take your comments to heart and maybe tone down the signs....as long as guests don't need the sign... More

Bridgeport is a very small town with little to choose from and Im so glad we chose the Walker River Lodge. The staff was so helpful, the room was spacious and opened up to a great patio that sits creek side. Very clean, comfortable room and amazing views.

Honestly I was not expecting much. After all we not in the 'City' and we are talking about a postage stamp sized Sierra Mtn. Town Motel - BUT! Happily the Walker River Lodge was really pleasant.

Bridgeport is a very small town with one main street so they don't have a lot of places to stay and nothing is fancy. The best thing about the Walker River Lodgeis that it backs onto the river. If you get a room along the river, you have a small deck looking out at green grass, the river and the... More

My room (21, I think) was really large and comfortable. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean, water pressure was strong, parking available right outside the door. Breakfast was light (cereals, toast, coffee, juice, and some fruit), but it fit the bill. I felt the price was a little high ($150), but as it was... More

We were very happy with our 2 nite stay . Has room facing River which was full and got to see some local beaver swimming about. Our room was immaculate and nicely furnished. Great breakfast in am . We took a great ride out to Bodie State Park as well as to Travertine Hot Springs. Do it!!

Thank you for the nice review. That river is full! We have a couple beavers in the area, they seem to enjoy it there. Visitors should come and enjoy Travertine Hot Springs and Bodie - we have directions to both in the lobby - in all languages! More

I managed to book a room for Saturday night of Memorial Day weekend, the day before as we decided last minute to get away for a night. The only non-smoking room available was not on the river, but I was just happy to find a room! This was a king room with all you would expect: Flat screen TV, room... More

We hope you enjoyed your stay. Memorial weekend was busy!! Hopefully you can come back soon and enjoy the river rooms. They are larger with a deck facing the river. In regard to price, we are a seasonal town, therefore seasonal prices. And we think the price is about right for all the free amenities that our guests receive. During... More

Was totally shocked at how great the beds were at this property. It's right off of the road, every room must have a view, and our connecting room made all of the difference for our group of 5 people. I'd definitely stay here again!

Thank you so much for the review! Especially the comments about our beds. We try to keep them updated and comfortable, but when we compete with guests' own beds, it is very difficult. Temperpedics, pillowtops, etc., - so thank you! And our views, we give a big shout out to Mother Nature! Bridgeport is a beautiful place. See you soon! More
