HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

If you are looking for something fun to do then spend a couple of days at the Walker River Lodge in Bridgeport. This iconic lodge has been a staple in Bridgeport for several decades. Fisherman, Campers and travelers have used this location as central hub for sierra vacations for gernations. Swimming pool to cool off in during the summer and...

I stayed at Walker River Lodge one night when lodging at Mammoth Lakes was unavailable and determined it is a reasonable alternative for budget lodging if playing in Mammoth. It is only a one hour drive away and $50 cheaper than the lowest rates in Mammoth (when available!) I found the WRL to be quite pleasant and very comfortable but...

Checked in when 20 degrees outside on Christmas Day and checked out when 10 below the next day. Would not know it was cold outside as the room was very comfortable temperature wise. Very nice staff was there to check in and check out even thought a Holiday.. Will stay again!!

We were planning on going to Bodie today, so we stayed here. This is an older motel, but well cared for. Our room was fair sized and well appointed. It was very clean. If we ever come back this way we will certainly consider staying here again.

We stayed at the Walker River Lodge on route from Las Vegas to Yosemite. I choose the lodge because of its location and was in easy reach of the 120 or 108 depending on weather conditions for crossing the sierra nevada. We arrived early evening in the dark after a long drive and were pleased to get checked in. Check...

Thank you for the nice review. We are updating all the bathrooms this winter! And you definitely don't need the AC - it was 6 degrees this morning! We hope you come and visit us again sometime.

Easy to find right off the I5. Quirky front desk staff but nice enough. Old motel with dated basics and musty smelling (especially with a/c on). Despite a pool being advertised online and right on their sign out front it was NOT available for use being fully tarped and bricked so I call false advertising on that front. We chose...

I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. We are not off the I-5, we are on highway 395. I believe the pool not being open was your biggest complaint. We state everywhere on our site and in the AAA books that our pool in seasonal. With temperatures down into the 20's at night in October, it is extremely...

We were presently surprised when we stayed at the Walker River Lodge. Rooms offered much more that what we needed. Beds were good. Pillows were great. WiFi and a very good continental breakfast made the visit free from any inconvenience. This is a throwback to the motels of the past; that is, you can pull your car right up to...

Fall colors , enjoyed last year stay Repeated this fall and added a day. Well kept up, grounds as well. Pay extra for the river rooms if feasible. Big patio door looks out on river and sagebrush beyond. The wildlife passing by plus knockout sunsets great. Rooms relatively small, as is the WC. Biggy...Every thing works! Hot water in seconds....

Thank you for the great review! I will definitely tell my housekeepers what a great job they are doing. I am very lucky to have them, and most have worked for us for over 15 years - the ladies are like family.

This is a nice clean place to stay albeit a bit pricey for what you get. Nice decks attached to the rooms, limited continental breakfast, clean and comfortable, iffy WIFI. This seemed to be the best choice in Bridgeport and was close to Bodie.
