Holiday Inn Express Bishop
Ranked #8 of 20 Hotels in Bishop
Reviewed August 13, 2013

My wife and I just finished a six day backpacking trip hiking the John Muir Trail and climbing Mt. Whitney. We returned to Bishop and spent our first night in a different, cheaper hotel. We had just checked out when my wife started feeling poorly, so I went back to the other hotel's desk and asked if we could get our room back. They said we would have to wait until after 3 PM, so I checked nearby locations.

Kathy Nelson, the manager at the Holiday Inn Express, had her maid immediately clean up a room for us, so that my wife could rest. Within a few hours, my wife took a turn for the worse and we had to go to the ER in Bishop. Fortunately, it was not critical; she was probably ill from something that she probably ingested on the trail. Kathy and the staff at the Holiday Inn Express were extremely nice and helpful during our stay for the next three nights while my wife recovered.

Our room was excellent and the included hot breakfast was better than most at mid-range hotels. The hotel includes a pool, spa, and fitness center. I would highly recommend this hotel if you plan a trip to Bishop and the Eastern Sierras.

About what you'd expect from a H-Inn express. Rooms are decent. Nothing special. Continental breakfast has a cool pancake machine, otherwise not noteworthy. Indoor pool didn't appeal to us. Good location in the center of town next to the park. Not much to write home about.

In comparison to the one in Bakersfield, this Holiday Inn was much better in its use of space and also offered a complimentary hot breakfast. It used more Priority points than other HI hotels. The room was clean and cool considering it was over a 100 degrees outside. There are a number of restaurants nearby where breakfast/lunch/dinner can be had.

Room Tip: The hotel is perpendicular to Main Street so ask for a room away from the road. There is an indoor p...

We stayed here for one night in Jue. We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel for an overnight stay and the Holiday Inn covered our requirements. Our room was fine - two comfortable double beds, clean, free wifi and a variety of TV channels. My parents also stayed and they encountered a couple of problems with their room - sink didn't work, no power to TV and a large quantity of electrical cable had been left in the room. We reported this on the way out for dinner and the problems had been resolved by the time we got back and hour or two later. Breakfast is complimentary but make sure you arrive in plenty of time. My husband didn't realise it finished at 9am and when he arrived at 9.05, everything had been cleared away.
Overall, this was a good option for a cheap overnight stay. Not luxurious but you get what you pay for.

Being a long time member of the Holiday Inn's Priority Club we have stayed at many HI hotels all over the country. This particular Holiday Inn in Bishop was very disappointing. The hotel itself was very clean and the room was very nice. Our room had double beds, a closet, flatscreen tv, and a spacious bathroom. The hotel provided a delicious breakfast with juice, pancakes, eggs, etc. We enjoyed the location as it neighbors the city park & we were traveling w/our 5 year old.The disappointing part was the staff. We booked our room through expedia.com. Expedia charged our credit card in full when the reservation was made and then the hotel charged our credit card again when we checked in. During our check-out we were informed the error would be corrected within 24-48 hours and yet 20 days later the problem still exists. We stayed at the HI during our weekend fishing trip. We did appreciate the fish cleaning area and freezer for our fish, but did not appreciate the scent of marijuana while walking through the hallway to our room.

Typical holiday inn but the pool is indoors. We were hoping to lay by the pool in the afternoons after hiking etc. The sushi restaurant is right across the street and very good sushi. He was the owner of shogun in mammoth forever.

The hotel staff is a mix depending on the person you have at the desk. The second person was helpful and courteous, the first - very friendly but not very helpful. Our room was large (two queen beds), a great view of the lovely park next door, and very clean. The room was quiet and offered the usual amenities. The breakfast was the general yogurt, toast, etc., no waffles though. The location is great, right in the center of town so one could walk almost anywhere. The entrance is at a right angle to the street so we missed it the first time by, but it is easily accessible and plenty of parking. A good fit for a short stay in Bishop.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the left side of the building if you are interested in a view.
