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.
