Americas Best Value Inn Bishop

Reviewed 19 February 2013

This is obviously a economic choice, a motor lodge sort of motel for the value-minded customer. It was the cheapest room I could find in Bishop, and I knew we were only going to be there long enough to sleep and get back on the road, so I took the chance. The owner called me while I was on the road to see if I was still coming because it was midnight. She was very sweet and said she'd turn on the heat in our room to warm it up for us. Her warm welcome made us instantly at ease.

The room was not fancy of course but it wasn't run down or unclean. We slept fine and the shower was strong and super new/clean. There was plenty of space and a good tv.

Continental breakfast was included with donut holes, cookies, toast, etc.

Free parking and free wifi.

When we checked out the owner was super friendly again.

Glad I didn't pay more for a "nicer" hotel when I was just passing through. I saved money for the final destination!

I stayed in #105 for around $55 (w/AAA discount) for one night--you can't beat the price! The room was decorated with light green theme. It was clean and was actually a true "non-smoking room" (many older motels like this say non-smoking, but you can still smell the smoke from decades of being a dive motel; this was not the case here). It had a microwave, refrigerator, coffe maker, cable TV. Sheets were very soft plaid, so it felt a bit 'homey'. Bathroom was clean and newly remodeled, except the old mis-matched towels creeped me out. Owners + check-in & out experience was friendly. Breakfast in morning was a nice touch, but I slept through it so I don't know about the quality.....but hey, what more do you want besides a clean bed & hot shower? Overall, a pleasant experience and would stay here again.

What can I say. A bad experience. A/C didn't work, flying insects in the room, bathroom ceiling leaked water, coke machine non-op for dollar bills.

This establishment has all the looks of a bad owner operator.

Stay somewhere else in Bishop.

During our one night stay, we made a few informational visits (for wireless connection, coffee creamer, and bath tub, etc.) to the office in courteous manner, and consumed at most 5 minutes of their time. Shortly after these visits, the hotel staff called our room, telling us that we had made a lot of troubles, and that if we weren’t happy we should go elsewhere. We were shocked and told them that it was rude to treat their guests in such a manner. They proceeded to rage at us, and even used words like “get out,” threatening to call the police. We therefore went to the office again and demanded an apology. They made no response. At midnight, they suddenly called our room again. Such a call is extremely aggressive and rude. From any perspective, this behavior is absolutely intolerable!

In our experience of travel all over the world, hotel staff are always delightful in providing information to their guests. During our one night stay at this hotel, however, we were treated in such an uncivilized way for perfectly acceptable requests for information. This was the first time we have been to an ABV Inn and we don’t think there will be a second.

Bishop is a pricey location, so I had to leave other better known chains out of consideration and settled for this one. Of course it is an old small place, but the reception was friendly, even cheerful, check-in went smoothly, the lady was very helpful with suggestions where to eat. The rooms were the usual motel-style, a bit worn, but really clean and the linens were ironed and smelled fresh. WiFi worked great, breakfast was rather on the usual continental side - but for the price of the room it was a very good return we got. Thumbs up! I will return.
By the way the pool is very nice.

We stayed here inbetween driving from death valley and Yosemite. As a cheap stopover it's fine. The room was a decent size, restaurants close by, free wifi and generally quite comfortable. We weren't expecting luxury so it suited us fine. Our room and bedding was clean. My only issues were - the breakfast is not great & the pool looked a bit dirty.

absolutely filthy place!
Blood stained bed sheets .. stained chair, grey towels (had they been washed in the last couple of weeks or were there used for wiping the floor before ? unclear)..
it is amazing that this filthy place got a license to operate. You better sleep in you car than sleep there!
So basically, either skip Bishop altogether from the agenda or search for the next place (we stayed a the best western in Alabama..)
