We stopped in Bishop unplanned and did not know where to stay we picked this place because it had a pool (stinky and cold), was off the main street (true) and we thought it would be inexpensive ($90 +tax) . When we first entered the room it smelled strongly of cleaning solution. Somewhat fresh . . just thought it needed to air out a little (we thought.) We took the kids directly to the little pool which was very cold and overly chemical smelling. When we returned to the room we noticed the cleaner type smell was gone and instead there was the underlying set of urine. We each noticed this independently, so I went to talk to the manager and was offered a second room. The next room I went to check out and it has the same strong cleaning solution sent as the first and I was worried that in a little while it would smell as bad as the first. So we asked for a refund less $10, for the use of the stinky cold pool. At first they we very unwilling since we had already used the bathroom, then she offed a refund less $30. If it were not that it was a busy summer evening and there were prospective guests trying to check in I do not think they would have refunded anything. The owner yelled at me that we stayed two hours, but I checked my receipts and it was only 1 hr from payment to refund. All in all I think we paid $30 for the about 20 minutes we were actually IN the room and we were very happy to leave! The Holiday Inn Express down the street is great!
