    « Good Base for the Eastern Sierras »

    We stayed here for two nights over the July 4th weekend. This hotel in Bishop served as a good base for a few day hikes that we did in the Eastern Sierras. The hotel is located centrally in Bishop and has a good choice of restaurants you can walk to. Our room had a queen bed and was decently spaced; not too cramped up. It also had a microwave and refrigerator. Their complimentary continental breakfast was quite good. Parking spot was a little difficult to find close to our room, but I think this may have been due to it being the long weekend. Overall, had a good stay here.

    « Pet friendly! »

    We only stayed here for one night and enjoyed the stay. They are pet friendly and these rooms have laminate floors which is nice. The room was spacious and clean. There was a friendly lady working the front office upon checkin. Breakfast in the morning is included and was good. They offer waffles, bagels, eggs, sausage, cereal, oatmeal, bananas, apples, oranges, yogurt, etc....

    « Never again »

    Horrible, they were in a total remodel, exit doors closed off, pool closed. Men working everywhere and loud banging everywhere. They said they were doing a little fixing up when I called, but this hotel should have been shut down.

    « AWFUL »

    Do not stop here. This is a motel 6 not a best western. The room was left with garbage from another quest. This bucktooth maid was very very rude and complained about our RV to the manager who told her to drop it and she went out of her way to make us uncomfortable after that. Like a bully. "Accidentally" opening our door two times in the same morning and not apologizing. Calling the room really early saying wrong room. Then our room started to smell like weed so we called so we didn't get charged. She said oh well. Hammering really early and ale going off all night next door. What's wrong with people.

    « Great Stay »

    The quality of the room and the friendliness of the staff made my stay a great experience. I was really impressed with the layout of the room. I especially liked the bathroom. The vanity/sink area being separate from the rest made it much easier for myself and my travel companion to get ready. Also, my companion was so happy to see that the height of the shower comfortably accommodated his 6'2" height. That is apparently a rare occurrence.

    « Best value »

    The room is basic with all you need for one night. Table 2 chairs, dresser, 2 night stands, tv, coffee maker, small refrigerator, tub with shower, and rate includes breakfast. I'm not expecting much, but the rate is much either. My only complaint is the carpet is terribly stained and should be replaced.

    « expensive for what it is. »

    my partner and I have often stayed in best western while In America. from sunset strip LA to Dallas. I will be wary now of booking BW because this road trip we came across 2 which were not up to standard. this was a travel lodge at best, dark, very very basic. a little worn. I think its price could have been halved. the staff were very friendly and no complaints on the facilities, just a little too basic for the price per night when we booked and stayed.

    3
    « So-So »

    Our first impression of the room was negative but I think that was because the room was dimly lit. When we really thought more about it, we realized the furnishings and cleanliness were fine but there needed to be a little sprucing up. The location is close to Schat's bakery and near the edge of town so you have to drive to get around. The breakfast was the typical type you get in motels: cereal, waffles, juice. There was a breakfast place across the street if you want something nicer. Desk service was very nice.

    « Just okay »

    The room was clean and updated. The only problem with the room, itself, was that one of the queen beds was too close to the entrance to the bathroom and it was awkward getting around it. The breakfast was disappointing. We had recently stayed at the Best Western in Winnemucca, NV, where the food and the ambiance were great! In Bishop, however, the eggs appeared to be reconstituted and the sausage wasn't good, either. The rest of the offerings were so-so. We had expected better. Finally, I left a small (sentimental) flashlight in the room. I know I left it there, as I was using it to find my way when I got up during the night. When I realized I'd left it, I called the hotel (two days in a row) and even stopped by when we drove back through a few days later. The flashlight apparently never was found/turned in and the person(s) I checked with seemed disinterested about my loss.

    « Manager issues »

    We enjoyed Bishop very much. This hotel is on the edge of town and so is quite a walk from many boutique type stores. IT is close to the grocery stores and a number of fabulous eating establishments. We ate at the Roadhouse and the Upper Crust. Both great. The noise proofing of these rooms is lacking and our room was along the street, so we could hear the traffic and anyone talking in the hall.

    « Needs a dog area! »

    This is the first pet-friendly BW we've stayed at that didn't have a dog area, so that immediately gets it less stars for us. Pros: great check-in, very friendly, gave us dog biscuits. Room was quiet, as the dog-friendly rooms are in the back, away from the busy road. It was also large, but had 2 queen beds and one of them was blocking access to the bathroom. Hard to negotiate at night. The tile floors were good, but a few area rugs would have been nice too. Breakfast was good, lots to choose from, and very clean. Easy access to restaurants also. Cons: No dog area! The only place to take your dog is along the edges of the parking lot, and that's really not great. We walked down the street and found an open area, but it was dark and full of thorns that got in the dog paws. Yes, there is a nice dog park nearby, but at 11 at night or 6 in the morning it's not convenient to take them there. Probably wouldn't stay again with our dogs, but might stay if we didn't have them with us.

    « Dissapointing for a Best Western »

    This Best Western has very small parking places and the visitor parking is almost impossible to get into so you can check in. The check in was smooth but there were a lot of people trying to check in so it took a while. They need two people checking in not one with a helper answering the phone. The lobby is neat and clean and on the small side. Our room was on the very small side with a very tall queen size bed. I never saw a bed this high, it is taller than our double stack water bed. The floor was a fake wood that looked very nice. The wi-fi speed was fine and worked all three days. The vanity area is a joke, very modern but the only counter space you have has the coffee pot sitting there so there is latterly nowhere to put your stuff when you are getting ready in the morning. The other problem is the ornate lamps need dusted. The location is in downtown Bishop so there are places to eat close by. The full hot breakfast every morning is a great feature. The dining area was always crowded but it is bigger than most BW dining areas. It was always clean and the gal was always busy keeping things full. The staff was super helpful when I called and asked about something we left behind, they located the item and gave me information on how to get it shipped back home. We had it back in 3 days. This was great.

    « Clean, Comfortable, Convenient »

    This was our third stay here and it was great. The room was clean and comfortable. We like the amenities including the in-room coffee, the refrigerator and the microwave. The location is convenient for walking which we always do after a long road trip. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is always a plus!

    « Very Quite Room Despite a Full House »

    Our ground floor room was very quiet - and we were given the impression the hotel was full. We have stayed at this BW many times. My only comment would be to try and provide a better pet area - as I noticed many pet owners staying at the hotel. Fortunately a wonderful City Park is close which gives us a chance to air the dog as opposed to the parking lot at the BW.

    « Not the Best Western's we know »

    Location was good, but the quality of the room was like walking back into the 80's and the smell was horrible. It was only one night, so we toughed it out. The person at the front desk was asked for recommendations for a sit-down restaurant and she directed us to a barbecue place close to the motel. It was a order your meal and they would deliver it to you at your table. We walked out and found the Whiskey Creek restaurant a few miles away that served a very good meal. Overall, this Best Western is not updated, nor clean, and the breakfast is powdered eggs, fruit and the assorted dried out bread assortment. I would not recommend this property.

    « Nice motel »

    Overall a good experience. A bit crowed for breakfast but we got got what we needed. It is a popular motel in the Fall with lots of overseas visitors on their way to the Sierra. We stay here every year on our way to Death Valley. Motorcycle friendly place to stay. Recommended.

    « Excellent value »

    I always try to choose a BW when traveling as I am rarely disappointed for he value offered. This location has updated bathrooms and was very clean. I will say as to the bath area the remodel to a swank vanity left no room for a gal to even put her make up essentials and the mirror is set much too high. Minor complaints and not enough to prevent me from staying here again. Oh...when you ask the desk clerk where to get the best steak in town for a reasonable price and she says the Bowling Alley...believe her.

    « Silver Canyon/ Laws Railroad Museum »

    We come to Bishop to get away from it all . We always camp out, but we couldn't this time and decided to stay at Best Western. The Silver Canyon trail takes you all the way to the Bristlecone forest that is over 2000 years old and the trees are living in a dolomite limestone rock that is incredible to see. The shapes of the trees and the wonderful panoramic views. You must have a 4x4 to get to the top this way, otherwise you can go to Lone Pine and find your way to the forest on paved roads. What a beautiful place. Amazing

    « Nice stay in Bishop »

    We were in Bishop for a family members memorial service, so it was nice not to have worries about the hotel. We have stayed here many times before, it is an older motel, but very clean, comfortable, and quiet, which helped during this difficult time

    « Good Location »

    The motel is in a good location, within easy walking distance of some good restaurants and a fantastic bakery. The room was upgraded and clean but small, as in the size of many European hotel rooms. It was a bit pricey for the quality.

    « Business Trip »

    It was a good hotel just old I have stayed there about 12 years ago and it looks like the same as when I stayed there the last time. Could use a face lift it looks the same as it did 12 years ago. Very good location but for the amount they charge the rooms should look better.

    « In-town hotel »

    Two night stay, but a mistake at the desk locked us out temporarily for the second night until it was corrected. Old hotel, somewhat tired. Good shower - very hot water. The toilet needed repair which we advised the desk. The towel bar for the sink is placed in a most inconvenient location and should be corrected. There was an excellent mattress, however, the fitted sheet didn't fit the mattress and kept popping up off of it. The breakfast room was attended by an excellent staff member who helped everyone - even making waffles, which were good.

    « Great Hotel »

    Stayed over night here whilst driving from death valley to Yosemite. Great hotel and breakfast. Rooms were spacious enough and were clean. Didn't really stay long enough to comment further but staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was OK too.

    « Motorcycle trip to Arizona »

    The motel itself is alright, but the staff there could do with some customer service brush up. When we checked in the staff acted like she was doing us a favor. We were suppose to get gift bags for being rewards members, not so much.One of our group had to ask for it, I didn't bother with it.

    4
    « Motorcycle Trip »

    The staff was very helpful in under cover parking of my motorcycle. Even volunteered to keep an eye on the bike during the night. The breakfast which comes with the room was plentiful and the lady in charge kept things clean and addressed all questions from guests many of whom were from Europe. The pool was clean and refreshing after the long bike ride.

    There are several choices when traveling through Bishop, but because of Best Western's reputation and cost our choice was easy. On the next trip through I will make Best Western my go to place to stay.

    good property for one night stay ,room was clean and bed comfortable Breakfast could have been better with more choices.. roll in shower was a plus for handicap rm. Hole in parking lot by handicap room is a possible danger to someone.

    We ended up staying a second nigh and they were very accommodating as we were only booked for one night. Thanks to the staff. The accommodations were neat and up to date, we will be staying here again on our next visit to Bishop.

    « Not the Worst, Not the Best »

    This place is clean and I would stay there again. I will say that up front. I don't mind what I consider a lackluster breakfast, but I have two real gripes. First, the wifi is AWFUL and, for this much money, it should be decent. Finding the network was no problem. The network, itself, was dead or super slow. Second issue - there may be parking spots for everyone, but it was a real rat race out there and I was worried I would not find a spot if I left for an hour.

    « What I expected in California! »

    This property feels very crowded and hard to move around in both on foot and in your vehicle. Breakfast area was very tight! Food was average....not bad at all...just not like the other BW's we have experienced on our trip. Staff was very whatever. Not bad...just not OUTSTANDING like those in Mariposa or Lone Pine. Sorry...just not AS GREAT as the others.

    « Where's the Elevator? »

    I am a person with limited mobility. When making my reservation, I noticed that the facility was 2 stories and assumed that there was an elevator. Not mentioned in the hotel website at all. When checking in, we were told that we would be on the 2nd floor. Imagine our surprise when we asked about an elevator and told there wasn't one! We than asked to be put in a ground floor room. Was told that there would be an additional charge of $30 a night. Said room would be ready at 3:00 pm, wasn't ready till after 4:00!

    « BW lacking too much competition available »

    For the money thought stay could have been much more accommodating. The competition offered what appeared to be much nicer facilities, parking etc. Rooms small for instance two queens stuffed into a room. Looks like the room was originally designed for a single bed occupant. Appears that BW is trying to turn an older 60-70's vintage property into an updated one. I think they failed, sure you have a bed and shower but for what it cost my family to stay for 2 nights , (1000.00) for 3 rooms it just wasn't worth it.

    « Wonderful staff! »

    We came into Bishop for the Eastern Sierra Tri-County Fair. We were working the fair so we were there for 4 nights. The staff were very helpful and always pleasant. There is a free breakfast included and being gluten free there is usually nothing for me to eat. The girl at the desk heard me mention that and proceeded to tell me about the gluten free options at the breakfast (a first for me). The free breakfast also included sausage and eggs which was a nice change from other hotels who just serve waffles and breads. The rooms are spacious and come with both a fridge and a microwave. The beds were comfortable and the sheets were soft. We had a problem with our bathtub in our hotel room on our 3rd night and had to be moved to another room. Michael, the resident repair person came to our room in the morning with 2 cups of coffee for us and then helped us move all our belongings. He was very kind and extremely hard working! He is the kind of employee anyone would want on their payroll. Two negatives...1st - I went to the gym and the weight machine was missing several parts and was unusable and we were unable to get the ecliptic machine to work. 2nd - We loved coming back after working and seat around the pool enjoying a drink and a snack. It was closed down every night at 10:00pm when clearly there were several folks enjoying. We were always quiet (the pool is also across the parking lot away from any room) so it would be nice to keep the pool open until at least 11:00pm.

    « Good but Not the Best »

    I have tried several places in Bishop and am a Best Western Diamond member so I thought I would check this one out. When I checked in the ladies were nice enough but were interested in talking to each other a bit. I have seen reviews that said the staff is friendly and for the most part, they are. The room was about the average size for Best Western, has laminate wood flooring, the sink, fridge and microwave are around a wall divider, TV was mid sized, WIFI wasn't very good but the bed was pretty comfortable and the room was clean. There are two ice machines but only the one in the back of the complex works when you put your key in a slot. The other is out of order and the sign looked like they don't plan on fixing it soon. The pool was out of order and very green. Check the photos to see how green. I heard several people say they had been out to Yosemite or other places and they wanted to get into the pool to cool off since it was over 100 degrees outside. Some had kids that wanted to swim but even the kids noticed the pool was really green. The office knows about it but it seemed there was no plan to fix it either. The AC is in the vanity area and it is a little loud. There seems to be more rooms than parking spaces and when I was there, it was fairly full. I have to come to Bishop about every 4 months so I may stay here again.

    « Pretty Good Hotel »

    My boys and I just returned from our annual Labor Day "Last Day of Summer Vacation" hurrah and used this hotel for the long weekend. Overall, it's an adequate hotel. Pros: 1. Price. 2. Large room. We had room 229 and it was large enough to comfortably accommodate two queen sized beds plus a twin-sized roll-away and a small "dinette" table and chairs. 3. Great Front Desk Staff: Really pleasant, professional bunch. Cons: 1. Noise. It's an older hotel and being up against 395/Main Street, makes for a somewhat noisier hotel than, say, Creekside Inn. You will hear the next door neighbors doors, water, street/traffic noise, noise from the parking lot and, since the hotel backs up against the track / fair grounds, expect noise from that area as well. 2. View: Our view was the maintenance yard just to the north of the hotel. 3. Maid service: This is probably an anomaly but our maid forgot to clean our room. They took all the bath towels and didn't do anything else. This is probably an oversight. I tracked down a maid and she gave me an arm-load of towels, soaps, shampoo and coffee and numerous apologies. 4. Internet Service: Very poor, as other reviewers have mentioned. I had much better cell reception. Our room was ready ahead of schedule and we were able to check in about an hour ahead of time, which was nice. The rooms come with standard amenities, such as a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, blow-dryer, ironing board/iron, large flat-screen TV, etc. Bath towels, soap, shampoo and such were in abundance on day one. See above for day two's result. Beds: I didn't list this as a pro or con as this is very subjective. I found the beds to be too soft and had a lower back ache for the weekend. My boys had no issues. Judge for yourself. Pool: It was a shade windy so there was some debris/leaves in there; nothing terrible. We used it both evenings we were there. The grounds include a separate common area kitchen by the pool to clean your fish. The hotel itself basically surrounds the parking lot so when you walk out you're in the asphalt parking lot with the cars. There's not enough spaces for all the rooms so you may have to park in a "non-space" by the front office. Overall, it's an acceptable hotel. I've stayed in much better Best Western's but this is more of the 'norm' for the chain. When we return to Bishop, we'll probably be using Creekside Inn.

    « Nice and comfortable »

    The staff here at the Best Western are very nice and friendly. The rooms are very nice and comfortable for two people with lots of things with them. Beds and pillows are very comfortable. The shower is nice and the bathtub is large enough to stretch out and relax.

    « Nice renovated room but not terribly convenient parking »

    We got there late, as usual, so we had to park far away from the room, in the back. However, there were plenty of spaces. The hotel obviously had been constructed in several sections, because there were two steps down from the higher second floor outside walkway to the lower second floor portion. This was annoying when trying to roll our suitcases from the back to the front of the property to get to our room from the back parking lot. The room was very nice other than that the air conditioning was most effective by the bathroom, so the rest of the room stayed pretty warm.

    « Not good sleeping conditions and useless internet »

    Very dark room during the day, at night the lights in the hall keep it very light. There is also a lot of road traffic noise. Internet is terrible. Impossible to make travel plans. The Travelodge is a cheaper chain, but it looked better from outside than this hotel. Despite TA rating, I don't think this is one of the best in this town. The decoration is a typical BW. Large TV, quiet refrigerator and a microwave. 2 Bag racks enough room for luggage. Clean with enough towels. Basic amenities. Breakfast was typical with waffles and fake eggs. Rain follows me wherever I go it seems, even in the desert! Found the natural Keough Springs but it was so windy and raining we could not even get out of the car! Bishop information office was very helpful. Bristlecone Pine must be visited!

    We have stayed in Bishop many times, once before at this property. This time we were more than satisfied with the experience. The facility seems to have upgraded since our last stay.

The free breakfast was not great, but served its purpose. We will stay here again when in Bishop.

    « Bishop's Best »

    I always enjoy lodging at Best Westerns when ever we travel. Although this one in Bishop, Ca didn't meet our expectations, with not having the pool in operation or able to fill the Ice bucket, it's not enough reason for me to exclude any future BW's. Since we travel to and from the Lake Tahoe using Highway 395, I would still consider the Bishop Best Western.

    Tried 16 hotels tonight and all fully booked, when this Best Western had room we thought the worse, how wrong can you be, excellent clean room, all mid cons, queen bed, microwave, coffee machine,ect the room is like a small studio, after driving 500 miles from San Fran through the mountains and Yosemit it's absolutely fab, and they have won our custom , give them a try

    « Skip this »

    We paid extra for this room despite cheaper options in town so our kids could use the pool. Pool was closed for repairs. Secondly, the faucets in the shower were mislabeled, so my kid almost burned himself trying to figure that out. Finally, ice machines were totally empty day and night. We gained NO VALUE by paying extra for this room.

    « Very clean hotel »

    We were just passing through Bishop, and needed a hotel for one night. After reading reviews, I called Best Western to book. I was not disappointed. The rooms were spacious and very clean, and had everything we needed. Staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was very good.

    « Good hotel with reasonable rates »

    My family and I stayed at the BW Bishop Lodge on our way home from Yosemite. The two ladies at the front desk were very friendly and welcoming. Our room was a bit small but was nicely furnished. The beds and pillows, in particular, were excellent. The air conditioning worked well but was extremely loud, and I had trouble sleeping because of it. Another issue I had was with the odd wall that separates the bedroom from the sink area. This wall is separated from the ceiling by a few feet, and the bathroom light hangs close to that gap. I slept in the bed next to the wall, so when someone got up to use the restroom in the middle of the night, I was awoken with the light right in my eyes. I'm not sure who decided on that design, but I think Best Western could have spared a bit more money for a wall that reached the ceiling. All in all, the Bishop Lodge was fine for a night's stay given how expensive hotels in Bishop can be.

    During our recent travel we stayed at Bishop Bestwestern & there were 12 LA DWP trucks staying there during prime summer hours, the Breakfast hours were short 6-9am, normal hours should be 6-10am & the one lady was over worked.

    We stayed for one night, Bishop is a small town beautifully located on a flat between the mountains. The hotel had everything we needed for the night, a small fridge and a working AC-unit. The breakfast was pretty sweet :) Some in our group had some real problems with the WiFi, and the gym was supersmall and warm. 2 liftingmachines and 3 cardiomachines.

    Small hotel, with comfortable rooms. They are a little on the small size, but have all the necessities. The only downside to the room, was the low shower head. It isn't tall person friendly; however, the water pressure is awesome. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Helpful Staff When Needed »

    On arrival, which was late afternoon, we felt rate was quite high, but we were tired after a long drive. Settled into a nice good size room and left for dinner at Amigos down the street. On returning to our room and getting settled, we began smelling smoke and my husband started having big time trouble breathing. Turns out an older couple were outside their room, just down from ours, smoking cigars!!! My husband notified the office and they immediately gave us another room elsewhere. He slowly improved after sitting out by the pool getting some fresh air and having a hot shower. Was disappointed that pool area wasn't kept up well and spa only had two jets working, stated another guest. The breakfast buffet was standard fare. Hostess was very sweet. On checking out they had given us a discount for our inconvenience which we thought was very nice of them!!!!

    « Handicap rooms »

    Everything was as I pretty much expected, I just wish the rooms for the handicap were larger. I have only one leg and some things were hard for me to do with my scooter. Less furniture and more lighting would be very helpful. This Best Western needs more handicap parking spaces. Also the Ice machine on my row was not operating so we had to go across the parking lot to get ice.

    « Good Hotel Overall »

    Stayed one night for a business trip. Hotel was good especially for the rates. Everything appeared clean and orderly. It was relatively quiet and located close to restaurants and stores. You can just walk to them if you'd like. Staff was nice and the breakfast was good if you are satisfied with hard boiled eggs, cereal, toast, etc. If you want a better breakfast, stay at the Great Western in Lone Pine (Frontier). In any case, there are a few breakfast places in Bishop you can opt for. I would stay there again.

    « Pleasant stay but general area not well maintained »

    Although our stay was overall not bad, I would suggest that if you are given a room in the very back building, the carpet may have a distinct odor that is not pleasant. We requested to move to another room which was better and did not have carpet. Room was large and beds comfortable. Hot tub and pool clean however, the surrounding area looked like it was not well maintained.

    I work in the area for a few days every three months.

    « Good value and comfortable »

    We stayed inn Bishop for just the one night, passing through on our way from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon. The staff were friendly enough, and the room was comfortable and clean with a decent bathroom. Breakfast was included in the morning. It was simple, but there was enough variety. I felt like the staff could have been a bit more helpful when we asked for suggestions where to eat the evening we arrived, but it's a convenient and comfortable hotel in a small town without much to do, but with great views of the mountains.

    « finally wood floors in the pet rooms!! »

    The best thing about this hotel was the wood floor in our pet friendly room! How smart not to have carpet in the rooms for pets!! It was clean, there were areas to walk your dog that felt safe. Breakfast was good, the outside of the Hotel is aged but our room seemed newly redecorated and again nice clean wood floors!!

    « Cozy and convenient! »

    This hotel is the best place to stay while enjoying the scenery of the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountain range. It is comfortable and the staff very welcoming.

    The gentleman who checked us in was first rate, a good source of advice on local attractions. The grounds and rooms are very well cared for.

    « Elderly gentleman »

    It was a very nice place to stay, a little to pricey as we have a small dog so it increased the price by $20.00. We stayed there before and liked it because it was next to the fair grounds, a good place to walk the dog.

    « Lousy room »

    The room was too small and poorly arranged. The heater was noisy. It was difficult to use the sink because the area was cramped. I'm surprised Best Western franchises this property. It's obvious its been converted from a very old and much less expensive hotel. It's not worth the $130 rate.

    This is fine for a night or two. The pet room was clean and spacious with laminate floors which is a nice idea for it. The location is within walking distance of at least 3 restaurants. It was very quiet except for a couple of barking dogs in the room next to us, but it didn't happen during the night or early AM just for a bit during the dinner hours. Clean and quiet. I put "average" for service because we reserved a king and got 2 queens.

    We live in San Diego, CA and had just spend a week skying in North Lake Tahoe and we stayed at our condo in Incline Village. We had made the 10.5 hour drive up there, but didn't want to drive the 10.5 hours back home to San Deigo, so we decided to stop and stay in Bishop, CA. We selected the Best Western Bishop Lodge based upon price and it was worth every penny. We do plan to make the trip again within the next few months, but this time we will stay in Bishop on our way up and on our way back.

    « Good for staying with your pets »

    I stayed here with my dogs for 2 nights. They have specific rooms for dogs that have faux wood floors (laminate) and they are actually very clean. The hotel staff was exceptionally friendly and the morning "breakfast" is what you would expect from these chains. That said, they do have a good selection of cereal, fruit, yogurt, and the like. Coffee is good. The dog run/bathroom area is actually very small and is wedged between parked cars and a fence with overgrown vegetation. The hotel could do pet owners a favor by cutting that stuff back. Otherwise, I have no complaints about this place.

    « Pleasantly Surprised! Very Clean and Pet Friendly! »

    We booked a room here at the last minute this past weekend, because we were running late and got sidetracked on our way to Death Valley and didn't want to find & set up camp in the dark. We like to take our dogs on road trips with us, and often find it difficult to find nice, clean places that allow pets. Admittedly I'm also a bit of a hotel snob, and usually prefer to stay in places like the Marriott, the W, or nice/clean Airbnb rentals, so I was a little worried. However, when we opened the door to our room, we were very pleasantly surprised to find a very nice, clean and spacious room, with mostly modern (updated) decor!!! Cleanliness is a HUGE concern for me when traveling and finding accommodations. This hotel definitely passed the test. Our pet friendly room looked like it had been recently remodeled/updated, and it had two double (or queen?) beds, nice wood laminate floors (I HATE carpets in hotels! The potential for germs freaks me out and just doesn't make sense to me!), a nice bathroom sink area, two luggage racks, decent bathroom, and many other positive aspects. Back to the potential for germs... I confess that I might be a little OCD about this, and I ALWAYS travel with a pack of Costco disposable sanitizing wipes, and usually wipe down hotel room surfaces, as well as in planes when traveling overseas or out of state, lol. This room appeared clean enough to pass my OCD test, and I found myself relaxed enough to leave the wipes in my luggage and not compelled to wipe everything down, LOL. The hotel grounds were not the fanciest or the most updated, but they certainly appeared to be very clean, quiet, and safe for two females traveling together. My friend/travel partner and I slept very well/soundly! There was a very conveniently located "dog run" for me to take my dogs outside on demand and we were also informed by the desk person that there was also a dog park less than a block away. They even gave us a small and thoughtful "goodie" bag with two treats for our dogs! :) I felt very safe taking the dogs outside to the run at night by myself. The hotel serves a continental breakfast in the morning, but it only lasts until 9 am, so we missed it, thinking it would run until 10 am like at most other hotels. This wasn't a big deal, because it just meant that we had to drive down the street to Schat's instead, and how terrible is that? LOL. The hotel is also directly across the street from Denny's, which we also found very convenient, since we arrived in town late, and most restaurants were already closed, except for Denny's, and so we were still able to have a late dinner. The desk and housekeeping staff were very friendly and courteous. In the morning, we were greeted by a nice view of the snowcapped mountains from the parking lot/dog run area. The area where the pet friendly rooms were located was very quiet, and I found it easy to maneuver my full-sized F250 in the parking area back there. My only regret is not taking photos of how nice the room looked before we occupied the room, so that I could post and share here. Staying here made me very happy, because now I have another option in terms of a clean, friendly, pet friendly place to stay when I am traveling with my family and dogs in that general area. We usually drive all the way to Mammoth and stay at the W when we have the dogs, but admittedly, the W is sometimes super pricey, and this is a much more budget friendly option, and I am completely enamored with the town of Bishop, preferring it over Mammoth. I had not stayed at a Best Western in many years, but I will definitely be staying at the one in Bishop again, and might even make the trek out to Owen's Valley and the Sierras more often, now that we have a nice, clean, affordable and pet-friendly accommodation option in Bishop. Thank you to the owners and staff for a very favorable stay at this hotel and for taking such pride in your property!

    « Nice Room! »

    I really enjoyed our stay here. After a terrible experience at the Quality Inn in Mammoth we decided to pay half the price and book a hotel in Bishop. The room was nice, updated, comfy bed, good water pressure and spacious. We were on the second floor and didn't have any issues with noise (we were travelling during the holidays). The free breakfast was great. We stayed here and the La Quinta just down the road on our trip and I liked the BW room a little better due to extra space and updates. I will say the La Quinta Belgian waffles were delicious though, better than BW but BW had more breakfast options. The Jacuzzi was small and outside. We were only going to go in if the Jacuzzi water was HOT but it was warm and not worth the cold trek back to the hotel room. I definitely recommend staying here. It's a great option if you are looking for somewhere more affordable than Mammoth or need a place to stop on your road trip. Best food in town was Schat's Roadhouse and it's only a block away.

Staff member would not change the channel when I explained it was not appropriate for my children, and the one other customer present also did not care to watch it. This TV problem has existed at other Best Westerns as well. I hope they change this policy if they want to continue to serve families with children. I am ready to switch to another hotel chain.

    Stopped overnight in Bishop traveling from Las Vegas to San Francisco. We had been held up in Vegas by our car rental and had planned to be in Lee Vining for the night but was getting too late to chance getting accommodation so decided to stop in Bishop. Lovely peaceful town, accommodation was OK. Room was clean and bedding comfortable enough for one night. Bathroom was very small, no where to put change of clothes other than on the toilet seat.

All in all was ok.

    « great stay »

    first time at his best western. everything from the greeting at the front desk at check-in to check-out was perfect. probably a bit older hotel, but the remodeled rooms are very large and appealing in appearance. the bed was exceptionally comfortable and breakfast was great, waffles and all!

    « Our room had been renovated. »

    The furniture was new. We had a vessel sink in a dressing area outside bathroom. everything in the room looked clean.The outside still looked dated, but I think had been repainted. The breakfast area was much larger than it looked on the outside.

    « Great place to Stay »

    One of the best Best Westerns we have ever stayed in, very clean inside and out. Good selection of food for breakfast. Room was very large, great for families. There are many restaurants within close proximity.

    « Clean, updated older unit »

    This is an older hotel. The rooms are small. They each have a refrigerator with separate freezer compartment and a small microwave. The bathroom sink area is separate from the toilet and shower/bath. The sink area has been updated with a nice counter/sink. The bedroom area has a real small table with two little chairs. Basically you need to lie on the bed to watch TV. The pool and spa area looked nice, but I didn't try it out. Perhaps because this is an older motel the walls are pretty thin. The price for the room is good and the breakfast included scrambled eggs and sausages along with the usual fare. The internet was not working well and the front desk staff seemed to realize it and hopefully would be able to make it better.

    « Bishop Hotels »

    This is the best hotel to stay at while visiting the Bishop area. Staff go out of their way to assist in making your stay as stress free as possible. I have tried several others in this area, and always come back to this one. Business travel is always tough, these folks understand, and make you feel welcome and at home...

    « Best Western Bishop Lodge »

    The bathroom was updated with the newest fixtures. The room was very nice. I liked the toilet and shower separate from the bathroom sink area. Roomy closet space. Two luggage racks. We seem to always need two racks. They served scrambled eggs and sausage in addition to all the usual breakfast items. They served the better quality bread than the usual cheap white bread. I liked that they began breakfast at 6:00 am for the construction workers who had to start work early. Highly recommend this place.

    « Camping Outside Would Have Been More Comfortable »

    This was the worst hotel experience simply because the rooms have not been maintained. The bed and bedding was uncomfortable. There were issues with the old air conditioning unit. The walls were thin and the other guests were loud... though even quieter guests could be heard. It was a brutal experience.

    « Okay for one night »

    The hotel is dated both inside and outside and the carpet has seen better days. Our carpet was not only worn, but very soiled in a large area around our door. When we checked in the clerk was dourl. She did not look us in the eye, nor did she smile or act welcoming. She also didn't seem to appreciate questions. The breakfast was adequate, the tv and the shower were good and the bed comfortable

    Good clean hotel with friendly staff and a high level of service. Conveniently located on Main Street near all the local amenities. Well presented rooms with good decor. Would recommend this Hotel for all ages.
