Overall clean and with all necesities. If any improvements, would be to updating a little for price range. Overall a little rundown for the price range we pad as compared to other places in same price bracket. It may be due to lack of market to area, but although the property exterior seemed more updated, the interior was less so... More

Thank you for your review. We just put a metal roof on, repainted the exterior, new outdoor lights, new outdoor carpet and reslurried the asphalt last year, so you just killed my ego. This coming year, we plan to refurbish the bathrooms, hopefully, if you come for a visit, you will like it. More

I have no idea why this hotel is scored so low. I loved this place! The price is a little high for what you get, but other than that, it was a great place to rest. I loved that parking is right outside your room. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. AC and internet were both great. It had... More

Thank you for the kind review. I'm sorry you thought the price was a little high, but we are a seasonal business in CALIFORNIA. The regulations, fees and taxes are getting a little hard on small business owners, but thank you so much for staying with us. We are so grateful for the monies spent and we will continue to...

It's been a while since we returned and I've only now got chance to write about our favourite place to stay over a long break in the states.

Well, we had stayed here years before and came away with a positive feel for the motel so when we planned a trip back to Bridgeport we just ignored the other motels and got a room here........that was a mistake. The place is old and maintenance has not been keeping up with all the problems that go with an old... More

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your stay. We put over $250,000 in upgrades last year alone. The coming year we are going to update our bathrooms, which I believe was your biggest complaint. My family has owned the motel since 1972 and we have always performed upgrades every year. I hope you give us another chance. More

This hotel is conveniently located if traveling through Yosemite National Park and its surrounding, but somewhat overpriced for what it has to offer. Our check in process was super quick, and the host was friendly and helpful. The shared computer in the office was extremely helpful, considering my husband and I were left with no means of communication since both... More

I stayed here for the weekend so my friend and I could hike the Pacific Crest Trail over Sonora Pass. Not that it appears there are many outstanding hotels in Bridgeport, and you certainly will not get a Marriot level of accommodation, but I was very surprised after staying here how poor it was, given that it is the #1...

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.
