“Pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

We passed through Bishop on a recent trip and were pleased enough with this hotel. The outside has charm and the rooms seemed to be in the process of being modernized. The linens and the sink had been updated. I will point out that the bathroom containing just the sink and the bathtub was very small, hardly enough room to close the door. Although not perfect, it was an overall good stay.

We stayed in a room with two queen beds. The beds and pillows were comfortable and the room was well laid out. I appreciate it when a hotel designs the rooms so that one person can use the sink while the other person can use the bathroom or take a shower. The room rate included a complimentary breakfast buffet which had several choices (scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, yogurt, cereal, pastries, etc.) and the lady in charge of setting it up provided "spot on" service whenever we needed to locate something or replenishing breakfast buffet items. The only criticism I have is the space between the queen bed and the bathroom was very narrow and difficult to navigate in the dark. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it as probably the best value in Bishop.

We had a single queen room. It was small, but it was very clean and the furnishings helped it live bigger. We had a table and two comfortable chairs. The three drawer dresser was quite large and the credenza / luggage table was large enough for our biggest suitcase and it had a lower storage area that was perfect for our small suitcase. The bathroom had good lighting, but the counter space is limited. (We freed up counter space by moving the Kleenex box and coffee maker). Breakfast was just OK. The staff are excellent and helped us plan our activities and dinner.

Priced right and a nice clean room with a good breakfast included. Pool was very clean and clear. The hotel was in a good location in town close to restraunts. Hotel staff was pleasant and chek-in and check-out was easy.

This was a clean & comfortable place to stay. We loved that we could check in, park, & walk to all the activities we wanted to. We slept well & felt refreshed as we headed for some exploration! Would stay here again if we were in the area

Our check in was very easy and our room was very nice. The beds were comfortable and the room had everything we needed. The guest laundry area could use a little attention but I was able to get our laundry done so it wasnt that big of a deal. There is a Denny's across the street and a grocery store in walking distance. The only complaint I have is I dont understand the location of the a/c unit. It was back in the vanity area of the room where the bathroom/sink area was which made it a little difficult to control the air properly in our room. Also, the mini fridge and microwave were on the floor in the closet area which made it hard to access. Other then that, our stay was pleasant and enjoyable!!

Maybe it's slim pickings in Bishop, but I don't think I would stay here again. Bed was lumpy, air conditioner was noisy, my wife and I had a hard time sleeping. Breakfast was alright for free but the scrambled eggs had the consistency of dehydrated camping eggs. This appears to be an older motel that had a recent face lift. Room was clean but they need to replace the beds. I gave it 3 stars because the staff is nice but would prefer to give it 2-1/2 stars. If you are in Bishop for camping this place might appeal to you but for someone used to nicer accommodations, look elsewhere.
