Eastern Sierra Ideas?

I need a break from what life. Looking for an idea of a place to stay for two nights.
Ideally small town, cheap motel near good food and beer.

Any ideas?

There is Bridgeport. The motels are not super cheap though. There are some good restaurants, but I don't know their beer selection. You could stay at one of the nearby resorts, such as Doc & Al's or Virginia Lakes. Virginia Lakes has their own store and restaurant.

A little further south is Lee Vining. The Whoa Nellie Deli is supposed to be good.

For a different type of town, you could do Virginia City, NV. It's all bars, casinos, and restaurants. You'll find more Budweiser there than anything else, but I'm sure they have more selection somewhere.

+1 on Bridgeport. The hotels are $$$, but it's a primo location IMO. It has a fun 'swinging door' saloon and the best single track I've ever ridden.

Lone Pine

The Dow Villa in Lone Pine has rooms for $66 but no private bath. But the motel has a really nice big, deep outdoor swimming pool.

And the town has a couple of bars and several restaurants.

Lone Pine and Bishop are great this time of the year. Here is a web site that has GPS tracks for trails around the area and if you want some tracks for the Mammoth area give me a holler and I will email them to you.

Bridgeport is nice but the hotels are very very high $$$$$ and the gas is the highest price in the state..........

The best riding in the eastern Sierra, Hwy 89/4/50, plus all of the open routes in Nevada. Since you missed the Rallye, you may find a new friend who can show you around... Or you can wait for this!
