Nice newly remodeled rooms that were clean, new carpets and paint. Television had a few stations with basic satellite. They were still working on other rooms. Quite pleased. Nothing fancy, but I will stay there again.

It was a decent and convenient hotel. But prices went up as rooms are being remodeld one by one (causing noise inconveniences to customers). Remolded rooms are ok, but the bathrooms are a disaster: noisy, poor quality. Not sure that any renovation has been undertaken for them. Other weak point : Breakfast breaks nothing... Good point: you may park your...

Weekend trip with family, there was a little noise from a few men that had been drinking, right out side of the room my Grandchildren were in but my Daughter called and the office staff took care of it right away, the employees are very pleasent. The rooms are clean with plenty of room for small children.

Nice clean unit. Complex was under construction so a little noisy. To be expected though. Staff were nice but not helpful if you talked to maids and maintenance crews because none of them spoke English. It was a pretty good place to stay. Would come and stay again.

We came into Bishop for the day and decided to check in at the Vagabond Inn. We knew they were remodeling hers (still are) but thought we would give them a try.

We were in town to go to a celebration of life for a long time resident and quite a few of our group stayed at this location. Comfortable rooms. I gave it a 4 out of 5 because the website said the rooms were all renovated but the section we were in definitively were not. It appears renovations are still...

We arrived Friday midnight and the staff was friendly, in fact they were friendly the entire visit. The room was decent. Local folklore has it that half this place burned down recently. The room looks as if the owner is doing renovations himself. In fact Saturday morning, I saw him working in one of the rooms. It's a pretty great...

We just returned from another get visit with family in Bishop CA. The Vagabond Inn offers very clean rooms and comfortable beds and great rates. The staff is very friendly and helpful. And a bonus is they are right next to Denny's restaurant which offers a 10% per cent discount when you show your room key.
