As a quick and inexpensive overnight on US 395, the Bristlecone was a delight. The staff was extremely personable and helpful. The room was simple, clean, well appointed, and large enough to not feel cramped; I saw no deferred maintenance items anywhere in the room. The bathroom was actually quite spacious with plenty of room for the small fridge, microwave, and coffee maker on the counter while still leaving plenty of counter space. I was initially a little bit put-off by the motel office being co-located with adjacent the gas station checkout counter, but it actually worked quite well, and obviously serves to keep down costs. The only down-side was that the air conditioner was quite noisy even on the lowest setting -- I ended up turning it off when I went to bed since the overnight low was forecast to be 60F. Otherwise the room was very quiet with no traffic noise.There looked to be a relatively new wall heater that had a vent into the bathroom, too, but it wasn't necessary in August. I would definitely stay here again.
