“Nice and quiet”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We were looking for a nice quiet place after hiking the JMT and found it here. We were first to check in and had no problems doing so. Things were clean and neat. Yes it's older, but everything worked and the price was right. Wall plugs were few and I had to pull the bed back to plug in my phone charger. The other glitch was the AC was blasting and loud. It took me a while to locate the controls high up in the closet, but hey, I expect a few quirks, it's not the Hilton right? We got a king size bed and a full size bed in a separate room, each with a TV for $89. I'd stay here again.

We looked and looked for a hotel and found the major chains to have disparaging comments which caused us to look elsewhere only to find this gem! Though it is an older hotel, we found it to be comfortable and very clean. We had a refreshing nights sleep and are grateful for what we found. Because of all of the benefits, we were able to overlook the minor flaws.

We love bringing our dogs on trips and this is a place my husband has stayed at many times before because of its location and value. They are very nice staff, great service-rooms are small and a little dated but hopefully u don't want to sit in your room all day. Pool area is very nice and pool very clean. We just enjoyed sitting outside one night while eating some dessert around the pool.

It is a super cheap option with pool, jacuzzi, fridge, parking and quiet neighbourhood. Its totally worth the price, its old but i still felt like they put much love in it. The young lady at the reception was friendly and helpful.. Dont expect too much and you'll be positively surprised. You'll also get 10% off in a nearby rather expensive restaurant.

We have stayed many times at The Village Motel. While its certainly not a 5-Star, you get what you pay for. On the upside, the manager goes out of her way to accomdate you as a guest. Clean, basic rooms with TV and fridge make for a gret "base camp", for exploring around the Bishop area. Quiet rooms, off the Main Street in the center of town, make it convenient to walk around. Never had any problems here and the staff make you feel like old an old friend.

Room Tip: Rooms near pool are convenient during the summer months

After driving around Bishop looking at the other motel options and reading reviews, we decided to spend the night here. It is located off the main street, which was quiter than others. Some of the rooms have full kitchens- we initially were given room 7 which is a king size bed and full kitchen. When we opened the door the room hadn't been cleaned, so back to the office and we were put in room 3 which doesn't have a kitchen (it does have a microwave and fridge) it also has a king size bed and a second bedroom with a full or queen size bed.

Overall the room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the shower hot! the motel location is great- you can walk to most restaurants and shops from here.

We enjoyed our one night here and will stay again on our next trip to Bishoop.
