Reviewed 28 May 2014

You can't find a single fault with this property. Super nice owners, Mary & Rex. They truly know what hospitality is all about. The motel has been maintained in excellent condition. For a old motel, you couldn't find any better rooms. Very tastefully decorated with a very comfortable bed. Has it all - fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The bathroom was spotlessly clean. Flat screen T.V. too and Wi-Fi. The property has an outdoor pool and a very beautiful garden area. Hats off to this wonderful owner couple for providing such wonderful hospitality on HWY-395. Thank you for the most wonderful stay. We arrived as weary guests and left as warm friends !!

Room Tip: We were given a room with a king bed on the second property. I have a good feeling that all the room...

This place is a real charmer, a classically retro 60's motor court (you park right outside your door) but lovingly updated in all the right places: sweet tile shower, in-room fridge, coffee maker (with artisan coffee paks), tasteful local art, nice landscaping and friendly and attentive owners. Great value!

For a small place way up in the Eastern Sierra, this place has it all together. The owners are super nice and accommodating, they keep very clean and well stocked rooms (towels better than a 4 star Hilton!) and the location is close enough to walk to a couple eating places and a few funky stores near by. Perfect base location for fishing the Walker River or for hunting, ATV'ing, motorcycling, hiking, etc. in the area. The only thing I wish they'd do is pave the driveway/parking area as it is not conducive to riding a motorcycle up to your room.
We will stay here again, perhaps get one of the rooms with a kitchenette and spend several days here checking out the area.
Try it, you'll like it!

Room Tip: Pool closes after August. Driveway is deep loose gravel, so keep in mind if on a motorcycle. Owners...

I was looking for a small motel for several of my touring motorcyclist friends (aka- Bikers) to spend one night at during the northern Nevada motorcycling event "Street Vibrations". Based on the ratings posted on TripAdvisor, the Andruss Motel seemed like just the right place and we were not disappointed! Rooms were quaint and super clean. I chose a room with a kitchenette as we planned on barbecuing dinner on the provided outdoor grills. The kitchenette included all of the essential utensils and dinnerware we needed. There is a great little patio area with tables, and an outdoor fire pit with included firewood. Staff was very accommodating and even offered tarps to cover the motorcycles as the weather was unsettled. We spent an outstanding time around the fire pit, enjoying evening beverages. Whether you are on a motorcycle or not, if your looking for overnight accommodations in Walker, I would highly recommend the Andruss Motel.

The eastern sierra is gorgeous this time of year, what with the aspens turning color and the crisp fall air. We stayed at the Andruss for two nights while exploring the area--including the old mining town of Masonic--a great drive for anyone used to back roads. The owners, Mary and Rex, care for this place as if it were their own home--something that seems very rare these days. It's a 50's style motel, with lots of ambiance. Knotty pine walls, cowboy art on the walls, flowers out front, and great hosts. Recommended.

Loved the Andruss Motel. Although on Highway 395, once you are in the grounds it feels remote from the road. When we arrived in the dark, all the lights in the unoccupied rooms were on which created a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Our room with two queen beds was spacious and clean, not the most modern but perfectly adequate. All rooms have their own foot mats outside which makes it feel a bit like stepping into a home. The pool is spotless and has some inviting chairs and loungers around it. Also very deep at one end which is great for swimming and diving. We sat outside the room late, enjoying a read and only the sound of the crickets. Perfect.

This is the place to stay on your trip down Hwy 395. Very comfortable and welcoming. Great BBQ area and fish cleaning station. We were also happy that they excepted well behaved pets. We will definitely stay there again.
