Historical Traveler Reviews Bishop Creekside Inn
Stayed here for one night, and wish we could have stayed longer! Had a family room, which was a really good size for 2 adults 2 kids. Spotlessly clean, really nice decor. Staff on front desk were very friendly. We arrived late afternoon after a seven hour drive and were pleased to find a lovely pool and jacuzzi outside, they even provide fluffy white towels for guests to use. Bishop is really pretty and the people are very friendly. I would definately stay here again - great!
We stayed here for one night en route to Yosemite and were not disappointed. The hotel and gardens were spotlessly clean and well cared for as was our large room overlooking the gardens and creek. Complimentary freshly baked cookies were served at 5pm.
The hotel overlooks a park where we watched a game of baseball and then the local band started to play attended by quite a large audience.
There is a good selection of restaurants nearby including an excellent chinese.
Overall an excellent hotel in a good location which we would recommend unreservedly.
Pleasant enough hotel
My Wife and I stayed here whilst on vacation in California. It seemed like a decent place to stop off for the night on route to Yosemite from Death Valley / Vegas. I'd not stayed in a Best Western before and was not sure what to expect. We feared the worst when we arrived at Bishop (not much goes on here by the look of things) but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The lobby is very attractive with lots of big, glossy photos of the local countryside and wild life. The hotel was very clean, modern with up to date decor and a nice cosy feel. The room was nicely decorated and my only complaint is that we were right next to a very noisy air conditioning unit. We were both so tired though that this was not a problem. The hotel does not have a restaurant so we had to venture into Bishop fairly late for some food. It appeared that my initial impressions of the town were miss-judged and we managed to find a good restaurant that was still open.
We left early after an OK breakfast with a warm feeling about the hotel. If you're in the area you could do a lot worse.
This was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in and not at all expensive for British people. We had a beautiful room, in a lovely hotel building with charming staff and manager. Breakfast was very good and included in the price. The outdoor pool was lovely in very pretty surroundings. Bishop is an excellent town with many attractions and good restaurants. We would definitely stay there again.
Great stay during Mammoth ski trip
We stayed two nights at this Best Western and each morning we drove the 40 miles to Mammoth to ski. Other guests we met at the hotel were skiiers too. Anyway-- I thought the place was great. Nothing fancy, but comfortably midscale. The lobby was attractive with a fireplace and cozy chairs. Our room was large, clean, quiet, and nicely decorated. Unfortunately, our balcony "view" overlooked the parking lot. Speaking of which, the parking areas wrap around the periphery of the hotel. With many doors into the building, we were able to park right by our room so only had a short distance to carry all our stuff. The complimentary breakfast buffet was extensive and delicious-- a filling and healthy breakfast before hitting the slopes. I definitely recommend this hotel!
Our family of four stayed @ the Creekside in November; it was our second stay there on our way to other destinations and we don't bother reserving anywhere else in Bishop. It is equally comfortable in summer and winter. The rooms are spacious, spotless, and tastefully appointed--two separate sink vanity areas (with all of the extras you'd find at an upscale hotel), a desk w/ internet access, a table with plush upholstered chairs, small outdoor balcony, and the beds---well, they were provided with extra padding and were to die for. This hotel is quiet and the staff is accommodating. Breakfast is included and is substantial with numerous choices, and for those traveling some distance and needing to wash clothing, you'll find a complimentary washer and dryer available on the premises. Before the dinner hour, the hotel was serving complimentary chili + tea and coffee --a treat on a cold day. The lobby also has a large comfortable seating area with a fireplace. Request an upstairs room facing the creek.
Pleasant but overpriced
pleasant motel with oldfashioned decor. internet access dial-up but free. overpriced for what it is.
Reasonable accomodation and friendly staff
This was a great stopping point en route from Yosemite to Las Vegas, although Bishop is a fairly uninspiring services town if you're a tourist.
The motel was clean and the rooms were a decent size. Staff were friendly and helpful. Only complaint is that there was far too much chlorine in the hot-tub the night we stayed - but these things happen.
Worth considering at the price.
En route from LA to Yosemite, we spent a night at the Creekside Inn before tackling the Tioga Pass.
What a treat - an oasis in the desert. Our room had a balcony with a view of the creek & pool - worth paying the extra $10. Breakfast was included in the reasonable price of $109 + tax (shop around for deals).
Also recommended was the Firehouse Grill - just a short walk away where we had excellent food & wine for a good price.
Very friendly and clean
A clean friendly and efficiently managed hotel.
A miilion times beetr than the other Best Western in Bishop.

Although we were not due to leave till 9:45 me and Danielle thought it would be a good idea to get a few hours round the pool before we left and some breakfast so we got up about 6 and had a quick wash before heading to the hotel restaurant for a breakfast buffet before hitting the pool. Sat there lounging on the sofa under the shimmering sun, listening to the pool trickling, watching the sharks swim by in the shark tank and listening to my music was an amazing feeling and ...
... it was all quiet in the RV until we got to the valley floor. Looking back we could see some snow still lying on the mountain sides. A sign told us however we were still at about 6,000 ft but it pretty much stayed that way for the rest of the day believe it or not.
After a few more miles we saw Mono Lake before us, we pulled over at a petrol station and had some lunch and planned the next leg.
My excellent navigation skills came into play ...
Headed out at 9:15 am and fueled up at a nearby Shell station - 23.894 gals. @ $4.159/gal. totaling $99.00. Drove by Crowley Lake with a back drop of snow capped mountains. The Elevation rose from 4120' to 7000' within 15 minutes of driving. By 10:00 am we were driving in snow. The snow continued when we reached 8036' altitude at Deadman's Summit. We continued our journey through Lee Vining town with a population of 300 and ...
We moved to Bishop today. This was another short trip, less than 40 miles. Our new home is the J Diamond Mobile Ranch, right in the heart of Bishop. The J Diamond is where Ron Chapman lives. Ron and I have been friends for about ...
... to feel like it wasn't meant to be....), but no more snow is due and we are hoping for the road to open up... So when we arrived last night in Bishop it was dark and raining, this morning it was dry and sunny and we realised it was actually really beautiful here, sitting on the valley floor the town has 360 degree views of mountains. Whilst it is very much geared up for tourist trade (fishing and hunting very big here!), and so Main Street pretty much ...
