Had a table for four and a bar counter, which had a refrigerator, a microwave and coffeemaker. Coffee maker had real mugs, which was a nice surprise. Room had a sliding glass door which opened to a back patio...

Thank you for the nice review. I just wanted to mention that our pool and jacuzzi are seasonal, I think this will be the last weekend they will be open. With night temperatures below freezing, it is getting a little costly to heat! However, fall foliage is starting to go off!!

The room is simple, clean and convenient to the town. They charge more for river view rooms but this river is a stream and I would hate to pay more for what little view they offer. We just stayed one night on the way from Oakhurst thru Yosemite to Tahoe, If you have a couple of extra hours take a...

This was my third or fourth visit to Walker's and I prefer a room on the river with a deck and a sliding door out to the riveThere are bar-b-ques available along with a pool and spa. It is a little pricey but, I am very willing to pay as I know the quality I will be getting.

Overall clean and with all necesities. If any improvements, would be to updating a little for price range. Overall a little rundown for the price range we pad as compared to other places in same price bracket. It may be due to lack of market to area, but although the property exterior seemed more updated, the interior was less so...

Thank you for your review. We just put a metal roof on, repainted the exterior, new outdoor lights, new outdoor carpet and reslurried the asphalt last year, so you just killed my ego. This coming year, we plan to refurbish the bathrooms, hopefully, if you come for a visit, you will like it.

I have no idea why this hotel is scored so low. I loved this place! The price is a little high for what you get, but other than that, it was a great place to rest. I loved that parking is right outside your room. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. AC and internet were both great. It had...

Thank you for the kind review. I'm sorry you thought the price was a little high, but we are a seasonal business in CALIFORNIA.

It's been a while since we returned and I've only now got chance to write about our favourite place to stay over a long break in the states. As the title suggests we also stayed at the Monte Carlo in Vegas, but the room here had more amenities. It was a great place to stop on our drive from Vegas...

Well, we had stayed here years before and came away with a positive feel for the motel so when we planned a trip back to Bridgeport we just ignored the other motels and got a room here........that was a mistake. The place is old and maintenance has not been keeping up with all the problems that go with an old...

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your stay. We put over $250,000 in upgrades last year alone. The coming year we are going to update our bathrooms, which I believe was your biggest complaint. My family has owned the motel since 1972 and we have always performed upgrades every year. I hope you give us another chance.
