We ended up here on the spur of the moment. The owner was incredibly welcoming and helpful and really made our stay. He gave us open honest travel advice, sightseeing ideas and tips and they were all top knotch. Rooms are basic but clean and tidy. Best service we had on our trip! Thanks.
Pros: Very friendly welcoming owner and Jeff at the front desk. Covered parking. Good free breakfast. Big hot tub and little table football in basement. Free wifi. Bus stop just outside for free shuttle bus up to ski resort.
Cons: Everything you need is there it's just all a bit old and tired. Beds not comfy - very hard. Probably OK if you weigh 12st+ but for someone who is 9st, the mattress wasn't flexible enough. Needed an extra blanket - heater was very noisy so we had to switch it off to sleep. Walls very thin - could hear next door's conversation. More expensive than similar accommodation at other ski resorts eg Lake Tahoe, but I think it was comparable to other accommodation at Mammoth.
