El Rancho Motel, Bishop
Serious housekeeping issues
I've stayed at the El Rancho Motel three times now and this place appears to be in rapid decline. During my first visit in 2016 the staff were friendly and the rooms were simple but clean. I returned in the spring of 2018 and chose to stay there again. That time it seems that there was a different crew working the front office. The room was not quite as clean and had a strange odor of stale cigarette smoke. It was tolerable and fine for the price. I gave the El Rancho Motel another chance and returned a few weeks later. Again, there were different people working the office, and they were not very professional. When I checked into the room, it again smelled of stale cigarettes. The room was VERY DIRTY. There were stains on the cover of the sheets, and when I pulled back the sheets it appeared that the SHEETS HAD NOT BEEN CHANGED from the previous guest!!! There was an indentation on the pillow and sweat stains on the pillow and sheet where the person had slept. The sheet was also really wrinkled. Also, there were hairs. Although the bathroom had fresh towels neither the sink nor the shower appeared to have been wiped down. Forget about the floor with it dark stains. There were none of the soaps or shampoos that had been provided just a few weeks earlier. There was also a small bug crawling in the bathroom. I attempted to find some of the office staff to address this, but had no luck. It would have been nice to get a refund, or at least a different room.

Nice Place to Stay in Bishop.
My husband, my dog Beckett, and I enjoyed our overnight stay at El Rancho. The room wasn't ready, but they put it at the top of the list so we could leave Beckett and join our friends for lunch. We will return to El Rancho next time we are in Bishop.

Happy with my stay
So I booked this room looking for something inexpensive. I didn’t expect the stay here to be this nice. The room is small but super cute and has everything you need including a fridge, microwave and coffeemaker. Cute decor. I will definitely stay here again if I come back to Bishop.
