Stayed here for one night passing through Bishop when everything else was booked (traveling with dogs). Rooms are (reasonably) clean, but very, very small, as is the bathroom. The motel is on a quiet side street, which is a big plus in my book. Bed was okay. Super loud A/C window unit, cable didn't work properly, TV remote was not set up. Most importantly, the window to the back alley could not be locked! When we pointed this out, the guys working there made a point telling us how this was a super safe neighborhood (across from a trailer park, no less) and they never had any problems. This might be true, but why do they have cameras everywhere then? Either way, the guy was definitely not very friendly, but did pound a nail (!) into the window frame to "fix it."
Bottom line: more expensive than the nicer Trees Motel (same owner), less friendly people, but quieter. The place feels as if the people managing it don't really care very much. I would not stay here again though as there are better options in Bishop that are only slightly more expensive.
