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... More

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... More

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... More

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!

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... More

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.

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.
