Downfalls not worth the premium price
Posted Dec 21, 2015 on Hotels
First off, I usually don't write reviews unless I feel the average is way off. I voiced my concern to the woman at the front desk about the rooms being noisy, as I'd seen in the reviews. I asked if I could have an upper level room. Since it was the first big ski weekend at Mammoth, nothing else was available. Sure enough, every step the people above me took sounded like they were clunking around in my room. I could even hear them talking. They also got up early and started clunking around again. The floor to ceiling windows which faced east did not have blackout curtains, so I was up when the sun rose! Since the main purpose of staying in a hotel is to be able to sleep, these were major hindrances to having an enjoyable stay. The room stank of musk, kind of like bad body odor. The toilet seat was broken, which they promptly fixed. I did a little test one day and left hair in the shower drain. It was still there that night after the maid had been there. One of the main reasons I chose this hotel is it has a hot tub. Well, I opened the cover and took one look/sniff of that and said no thanks! It was absolutely disgusting, cloudy and dank smelling water. I've owned a hot tub, so I know how they are supposed to be maintained. So no hot tub either. The only reason this doesn't get one star is that the woman who runs the place is nice, the bed was comfortable, and the location just a few minutes walk to the village was very convenient.
