Excellent beds & blankets. Rooms are very well kept. Only downside, I am not sure where the ice maker is.

Decent Little Cottage But Awful Beds

Pros: It was fairly cheap and seemed clean.
Cons: The beds need replacement, or don't stay here.
Checked in late and the prepaid for a two bedroom cottage. Key was left for us in late check-in box. Staff was very pleasant on phone and at check-out. Little cottage. Rooms were small. Not enough plates or anything in the kitchen to actually cook, but we were only staying overnight. The rooms seemed clean, although the shower looked to be oddly constructed, but it was useable. The problem was the beds were quite uncomfortable, while the pull-out couch was horribly uncomfortable. A hotel just can't get a good rating if it isn't good for sleeping. Also, the a/C was inadequate for summer heat. The A/C unit in the living room would go on and off very often, all night, and would make a loud noise when it went on that would wake the person sleeping there on the horrible pull-out bed. It made for a very bad night for my daughter.

Comfort + Convenience on US-395 in Eastern Sierras

Pros: Parking is ultra-convenient, with each spot lined up right in front of the room
Cons: Not have A/C turned down so low in anticipation of arriving guests. Autumn heralds lower temperatures and longer nights so pre-cooling rooms unneeded
Location: Just raise your head to look above this single-story facility, and it's fantastic scenery in every direction!
When I asked the owner if there was a fridge in my room despite being just a single queen without a kitchen, they said yes, and indeed the mini-fridge was just right with a compartment for refreezing coldpacks. They also made available a freezer cabinet adjacent to the parking area for refreezing a larger bag of ice that had not melted much on the trip down from Reno, so it would be good through the completion of my journey through Death Valley the following day.

Helpful staff + Relaxed atmosphere

Pros: staff
Location: Bishop is nicely-sized community with moderate, usually delightfully dry conditions in the very scenic Owens River Valley.
As usual front desk staff and their assistants are very helpful and accommodating to the guests. Room was cooled down for my arrival. Kitchen + dining area was quite spacious.
