Did a family trip up to Mammoth during the summertime for a vacation and the half marathon. This was my first time up to Mammoth, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Looking into some of the hotels in the area, I chose the Village lodge for the price, location (for the race), and the amenities. Since I was traveling with my whole family, I really wanted a place that had a kitchen, so we didn't have to eat out every meal. We booked a 2 bdrm suite at the Village Lodge and loved it. The room is very very spacious, the beds are really comfortable, the bathroom's are big and it has a Full kitchen. Since we were spending a week there, we easily felt like it was a home away from home.
The place has a feeling of a mini town in that it has a lot of things right on site of the hotel. There's shops, Starbucks, restaurants all in a "village" like setting there. They have outdoor games (bean bag toss, BIG jenga) that you can play and if you are there for skiing, then the lift is literally right on site.
We also used the pool which was heated and very nice. It's central to all the buildings and easy to get to. There's a nice waterfall area and some firepits that you can sit by to warm up on cool nights.
On the particular weekend we were there, there was an outdoor band playing in the courtyard area which is cool for adults, but not for kids that have to go to bed early. We happened to have a room that overlooked the courtyard, so it's good and bad. Nice view, but noisy at night. However they don't play too late and I'm not sure if it's an every week occurrence or not. The weeknights are very quiet though and relaxing.
Overall this is one of the best places I've stayed at anywhere and the next time I'm in Mammoth, I will definitely be booking this same hotel.
