This place would have garnered a good review, however, there were a few things that will prevent me from ever staying there again or recommending to others. If you have any problems with fragrance then stay away from this place! The sheets, comforter and pillows reeked with fragrance. I usually bring my own pillow and after the one night in...

We stayed at this motel for 3 nights recently for a getaway to the area and it was perfect, I wished we'd stayed longer. We had room #4 with a kitchen and it was clean, updated and perfect for our needs. The owners/managers were very nice and helpful. It's just off the main street in Bishop and we were able...

This is the kind of place you stay for a night and move on. Rooms are clean for the most part. Walls are thin and you can hear everything. My husband booked this because it was cheap and we would only be there for about 12 hours.

We arrived very late at night and the owners waited for us. They were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and nice enough for a short stay. It's really near to Bishop's main street, which is perfect if you are just passing by.

This is a fun, old-fashioned, 1960s style one-story motel. Service is just average, and the rooms are basic, but it was just right for us. Floors are linoleum or wood (I didnt' pay much attention) and the bathroom is nothing special, but the place just felt cozy. Our beds were very comfortable and we felt safe. I'd stay here again.

On my way to South Lake Tahoe, stayed in this Motel for one night with family. Room was okay with comfortable beds. The bathroom size was very small, space for a person to stand and take shower bath. The toilet commode (flush) did not work at all with the result that we had to use the washroom of a nearby...

I originally intended to spend the night as I made my way from Oregon down to Tucson, AZ. That night, I arrived and found a quaint, cozy room with the lights on and the heater had been running; a warm welcome, quite literally. The parking spaces were numbered according to proximity to your room, which made accessing my car quite...

We stayed two nights in the suite, located in town away from the motel. It is very nice, comfortable and clean. The area is quiet and there is a yard with bbq and smoker. The personnel is kind and available. We will go again.

Seems rooms for the leaf-peeping season were in short supply this past weekend, but we're glad we found the El Rancho Motel! Off the main drag in Bishop and our room was just fine for the two of us, and our Golden Retriever! We didn't have a kitchenette but the fridge, microwave and coffee pot were enough for the short...
