Great location. Nice reception area adjoining bar. It all feels very cozy. The $25 a night resort fee does not seem justified, however.

Nice place to stay for a ski tripPosted Sep 19, 2014
Pros: Down pillows and pillow-top mattress, microwave and refrigerator in room.
Cons: Continue updating, like the shelving unit in the bathroom.
Location: The Rafters Restaurant, located next door, had excellent food.
We stayed here on our way to Yosemite National Park. Hotel lobby has a ski lodge feel. The whole hotel was hot, but it had been in the 90s that day. Looks like they might be in the process of updating. Nice beds and down pillows, but parts of the bathroom were dated. No elevator, so not friendly for disabled people. If you're looking for a clean room and nice bed for an overnight stay, this is your place.

Interesting mountain hotelPosted Sep 17, 2014
Stayed only for one night but enjoyed the charming style and huge fireplace. Breakfast at the resort's restaurant was memorable.

Had a great experience/stay here. Staff was great and the kid's activity room (Cub ___?) was very appreciated.

Hotel has characterPosted Sep 4, 2014
Pros: Character. Hotel amenities were great for my kid.
Cons: Conspicuous display of room amenities when ordering. I had no idea there was no air conditioning in standard rooms.
Location: Center of town walking, distance to Vons and Rite Aid.
I had a good stay here overall. My kid loved the miniature golf, pool, Cub Club, playground, weight room, and pool table in the lobby which he ran too every morning. He loved the place. For me I found the room lacking as its August and 85 degrees yet the room has only a fan I put up against the window. But I made that mistake by not upgrading when I ordered as I missed the details deleted air conditioning. It was not conspicuous and was a big deal. The fridge seemed hard pressed to work, once I turned it on it didn't cycle and cool with the compressor. I heard only a small hum. Not exactly happy. At least by morning my drinks were cold. Also the ice maker on my floor was dead. I had to go to the neighboring building for ice. Fitness room was average; 4 pieces of equipment, 1 weight, 2 bikes and an elliptical machine. My room was also in the arm pit of a building so I had only a little view. But whatever, I was happy to move upstairs and look South. Rafters next door was hit and miss with food and service. I got served readily for dinner at happy hour and breakfast when I ate there but people who came after me were complaining about the long wait. I started to time it, I got drinks, ate my meal, and watched some sports on TV and heard them go on for close to 30 minutes before getting any service. Waitress said she didn't see them come in and sit down. Dinner was not great, the burger was lacking, and chicken tenders were hard, fries were not good but dried out from a heat lam

Very DisappointedPosted Aug 25, 2014
Cons: The rooms are too small I can't even imagine if we were there to ski or snowboard. Such a bummer.
Location: Walking distance to several family friendly restaurants.
Based on my selection via the web site and based on the price I selected a suite with 2 queen beds and a small living room. Their was no living room and our room was very small with very little extra space literally 2 queen beds with also no space to turn around the bathroom very very nice and upgraded. We were passing through with our 2 teenage kids and just staying for the night. Our bathroom and the halls reeked of marijuana. The location was walking distance to several restaurants which was handy. But I would never every stay here again. We basically walked to dinner went to sleep as early as possible and left ASAP in the am. Way over priced for what it is.

Nice for an inexpensive hotelPosted Aug 15, 2014
Pros: Nice location and reasonable pricing - but remember to add on the resort fee when figuring out the cost of your stay.
Cons: The rooms are a bit run down, but overall it was acceptable.
Location: On one of the main drags in Mammoth Lakes so food and in-town entertainment is close. We were coming off of 10 days hiking in the John Muir Trail.
The hotel itself was very acceptable. Just be aware that when you check out they tack on a $25/room (we had 2 rooms) charge as a "resort fee". When I asked what that covered, they said the resort fee was for the "free drinks" offered at the bar, and for the "free" mini golf, neither of which we participated in, and obviously, neither of which were actually free. We had laundry to do and the cost/load was prohibitive.

An all around very nice hotelPosted Aug 15, 2014
Pros: See above
Cons: See above
Location: Its Mammoth...think about it.
The hotel was clean, everything in the room worked, but there were a few things that were rough around the edges. The room for example didn't have an air conditioner, which for Mammoth is almost never an issue. When we were there in August however, it got up to around 80 during the day, which was a bit warm without an air conditioner. The shower head also needed a little bit of work and made a loud metallic ringing noise when turned on. Overall though, a very nice hotel, and for the price, it was amazingly better than the Motel 6 or best western, for only marginally more money. Would definitely return to again.

One big problemPosted Aug 12, 2014
Pros: The decor, and the staff.
Cons: Rooms should be ready when they say they will be; no excuses. And the buses should park away from the rooms.
Location: Mammoth is great; lots of recreation (dirt biking, skiing etc.) Devil's Postpile is nearby. Good restaurants, pubs, brewery.
We loved everything about the hotel except for one major problem. The lobby is lovely, the rooms are very nice. The staff is great. So, what is the problem? Apparently the hotel books with frequent large tours. They pour in at the end of the day so that check in is a nightmare. We arrived at 5:30 or 6:00 pm and the rooms were not ready. We did not get into room until after 9:00 pm. And there were numerous other unhappy guests who could not get into their rooms either. I noticed the same occurrence the next night as well. In addition, our room window was right above the area that the hotel allowed the bus to park so that at 7 am we were awakened every morning when the bus started its engines. So, if you can be sure to arrive early and ask for a room away from the buses, you may have a lovely stay. Also, this would be a summer problem I believe. I don't think they run these tours in the winter.
