“Typical Roadside Motel”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

The Ramada Limited in Bishop is right off US 395 and easy to find; there are several restaurants within walking distance. This is an older structure in the classic motel design with all the doors facing outwards on the parking lot. There was nobody at the front desk when we arrived, but a note on the desk provided a phone number to call and that worked - apparently there isn't a full time front desk staff.

Our room was quite small, but it was clean and noise from the nearby highway wasn't a problem. A simple continental breakfast is provided and we enjoyed toasted bagels and coffee before hitting the road. Without serious competition this is quite likely one of the better motels in Bishop.

We arrived about 9pm after a gruelling 6 hour car trip, only to be greeted by a sourfaced, sarcastic receptionist, who seemed to enjoy belittling me, as I tried to check in. She referred to herself as Amber during a phone call, so I can only image the person who wrote a good review about her below, is her friend, or maybe Amber just doesn't like international travellers!

Otherwise, the room was nice, although compact, beds comfortable. It was a tight squeeze to get past the furniture into the roomy dressing area, to then be met by a tiny bathroom. Breakfast was good. However, there seemed to be plenty more hotels in the area, which offered full breakfast, may try one of those on my next visit, if only to avoid the nasty receptionist!

We were in Bishop for my Grandson's wedding and enjoyed our stay at the Ramada. The price is great and so was the room for the price. A bit small, but very clean and basically comfortable.

During the big Rim Fire in Yosemite National Park this month, we were evacuated from Hetch Hetchy with food for 4 people for 3 days and no place to stay. We decided to drive over Tioga Pass and down to Bishop, to position ourselves for a visit to the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest and other Eastern Sierra destinations. We wanted a room with a small kitchen, and only Ramada had it. Plus, they had a pool just outside the room. Amber did an excellent job of showing us around and helping us feel welcome. We had a memorable stay here. My only criticism is that the pool was a little cool for comfortable swimming.

Room Tip: Ask Amber for help; she'll take good care of you...

I've stayed in quite a few of Bishop's mid-price hotels and I liked the Ramada the most. Clean and quiet, with good-sized rooms. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. Every employee I met was helpful. I didn't try the breakfast, but it didn't look like I was missing much. Next summer, I'll be back.
