Lodging outside of Mammoth? Need your advice.

So I'll be in LA around Thanksgiving, and Mammoth is supposed to open a couple weeks beforehand. It's < 6hr drive up US-395. My gf is down for a day trip, and while driving roudntrip + riding all day is doable, it would be brutal. Since it's a holiday weekend, all the lodging in Mammoth (through their site, at least) requires a minimum 2 night stay, not to mention being expensive anyways.

So I'm thinking of heading up the night before and spending a night somewhere along the way. Better if it's somewhere along the way on 395 so we don't waste time driving past the resort. Just looking for a clean room for 1 night, hopefully < $100 but not a shady property or area, and not too far from Mammoth. Let's say maybe within an hr drive or so?

I've done some random searching online, but I wanted to get some real insight. Does anyone have any specific recommendations of nearby cities/towns to look into, or even specific hotels/motels? Hopefully somebody out there has stayed outside of Mammoth Lakes before...

Yeah, Bishop is the spot where you want to look. You'll probably find fairly reasonable prices there too.

Motel 6 in Mammoth

Motel 6 Mammoth Lakes Hotel - Mammoth Lakes, CA - Motels & Hotels

$69 for one night. Relatively clean and close to the slopes. Nothing special but does the job.
