Note: Beware of bears on the property and parking lot. They are very cute to look at but remember that Mammoth Lakes is bear country so not leave anything in your car or your car will get destroyed. (Didn’t happen to us but we did see a bear there) On to the review, front desk staff was nice and helpful. Restaurant staff was rude not friendly, not sure what happened there. They definitely need better customer service skills if still want business.
