Best Western Bishop Lodge

Reviewed October 26, 2013

We were driving up 395 from a visit in Rancho Mirage. Bishop was the perfect place to stop for the night. The hotel was very nice the staff was friendly and the breakfast had a better variety of baked goods than most Best Westerns I have used.

Room Tip: There is no elevator so get a room on the ground floor if you can't deal with stairs.

We were road tripping back to Washington and stayed here as a last resort (long drive night time) We were very happy to see it was a typical Best Western, amazing staff, very good breakfast, quiet, clean and affordable. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: The first impression is so so, but its truly a gem.

We chose this motel on the reputation and experience of othe Best Western establishments. This no where reached the mark of the others! The coffee pot had a used bag in it, there was rubbish behind the bedside table ( we had to pull it out to use a power point), after walking on the carpet each step in the bathroom left a dirty foot print, bed head lose against wall so made a noise whenever you moved and was greeted by unfriendly reception staff. Would not recommend!

We were very happy with the size of the room and the beds were comfortable. We like Best Western because they are pet friendly, and we enjoy their breakfast. The room was very clean and we liked having the small fridge and microwave.

We got a ground floor room, right across from the lobby. I was worried about noise but turned out not to be a problem. Place has a good breakfast probably one of the betters ones compared to other Best Westerns we have stayed at this year.
One negative for me was the mattress to hard for my taste, I'm a side sleeper so a softer mattress would have been better but my girlfriend had no problem. Overall not a bad place to stay if you are exploring the area and just need a clean room and free breakfast.

We asked for a ground floor room since we arrived on a motorcycle and like to keep an eye on it. We also asked for a handicapped room when told we could not have a ground floor room since none were available. Two couples traveling with us, that checked in at the same time as us with another front desk guy, were given ground floor rooms.

I read the reviews before booking. They appeared to be pretty good, and all I wanted was a decent hotel room to stay overnight over a quick weekend trip to see foliage (the other local lodges/cabins required a minimum 2 night stay and were much more expensive).

I chose Best Western Bishop because of the reviews and the proximity to local eateries that rated well also. My sister and I checked in around 5pm, staff was very friendly and professional. We were given a room in the back, which was very clean and modern. We walked across the street to the pizza place (great food!).

The beds were great, there was no exterior noise seeping through even though participants of a large car show were also staying on the premises. The complimentary morning breakfast was awesome! We seriously over-ate. Check out was a breeze and we were on our way! I was very satisfied with my choice of hotels.
