No one will ever confuse the Bristlecone motel with a 5 star luxury hotel.
The rooms have a ranch-hand, bunk-house feel to them.
This is my fourth review of this motel. It is obviously our motel of choice when we go to Big Pine for the weekend.
This time we stayed in room 15. Another large three bed room. The room was clean enough. Wouldn't pass a white glove test but was clean. The bathroom and shower area is small. This seems to be standard for this motel. This particular room didn't have a kitchenette. It had the basic mini fridge, coffee maker and microwave. There was no sink in the bathroom (that was odd). The sink was just outside of the bathroom.
Bring your own shampoo, or buy it from the convenience store next to the motel. Shampoo is not provided by the motel.
It was very cold at night the weekend we stayed but the small in room heater warmed the room up well.
The motel is a wee bit run down and outdated but it's fine for a place to spend a night or two on a weekend fishing trip.
They looked to be doing some repairs/renovation while we were there. Looked like perhaps they were repainting some of the rooms. They also seemed to be putting in new tile.
They advertise free wi-fi but it must have been down the weekend we stayed because none of us were picking it up. (I have been able to access the wi-fi in the past).
We will be going back to Big Pine in March and will stay again at the Bristlecone.
