“All good except 10am check out!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We got the last cabin available due to the Beer festival this weekend. It was pricey but very nice and in a great location. We walked across the street to a great free outdoor Saturday nite concert, drank good margaritas and had a good meal at Toomeys! Petras restaurant is at the lodge. The cabin was well appointed. The shower is no bueno if you are on the chubby side! Your butt and your gut are touching the shower wall! All was good though and the front desk was nice too. Continental breakfast just average. We would come back!

Stayed for just one night after a day of hiking but would have been happy staying longer. An older rustic lodge with that suited us just fine. I usually sleep just 5 hours but the super comfortable beds kept me horizontal for 9 hours. Breakfast was included in the cozy restaurant area and no need to drink and drive as the bar is located in the basement. Will definitely return this ski season!

We stayed here for 2 separate nights, one before our backpacking trip and the other night afterwards two separate rooms and they were both pretty nice. There is no AC so try to get a room facing the parking lot so you can get a breeze. The staff was very friendly, the continental breakfast was great, beds were comfy, a little outdated, but still well kept and clean. The price was great and it had a nice European ambiance. Would definitely recommend. The location is only about 5-10 min drive to Mammoth Mountain where you catch the shuttle to go into the park. Hotel is right next to several restaurants within walking distance across the street. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If going in the summer, get a room with a window facing the parking lot so you can get that nice bre...

Stayed here while travelling & did not have a booking, but staff were helpful & found us a comfortable room. Access to a pool was appreciated after a long drive. Breakfast was included in the price and there was a good variety available. In all, very pleased we found this hotel!

Right across from the village with many dining opportunities, you really don't need a car. The gondola head right up the mountain a few steps away.

Our queen bedded room on the ground floor was very spacious. We particularly enjoyed the f?oor to ceiling windows and the trees nearby. The interior is very clean and looks like a throwback to the 70's. This was not a put off. It added to the charm and authenticity to the place. Nice confinental breakfast in the morning. If you get a. Han e, frat yourself to the restaurant in front. Petra's is one of our favorites.

Just stayed one night at the Alpenhof Lodge, but it was a great find. Reasonably priced (for Mammoth), a great location close to the brewery and village. Staff was super friendly (let me check in early), the rooms were clean and comfortable. Complimentary bottled water was a nice touch. There was a nice European style breakfast with a lot of options. Outdoor seating areas nice for gathering with friends with a growler from next door. Pool and jacuzzi clean and functional. Friends ate in the cafe downstairs (restaurant is closed on Mondays) and enjoyed it very much. (They were especially impressed with the totchos)! All in all a very nice find in Mammoth. We will return. Only three minor issues.

The wifi was spotty. It was easy to connect to, but it kept dropping the signal. This would have bothered me if I really needed to get some work done (which I often do while traveling) but for this trip I didn't want to work anyway!

The shower head was low and and a weird angle (and was not adjustable) and lacked good pressure. For this trip, not a huge issue, but if you've been out skiing all day, you REALLY want a nice, hot shower. You might consider looking into low flow shower heads from High Sierra Showerheads (I don't work for them I swear! But I recently bought one for our house after using one in another hotel, and they are awesome! Good price, environmentally friendly, great pressure and adjustable. Just a thought!)

The other thing was that our room (105) was missing a screen for the window. I wanted to let in the fresh mountain air, but wasn't too keen about sharing the room with mosquitoes and such.

But as I said, those were minor issues, and overall we were VERY happy with the accommodations.

We stayed at the Alpenhof for two nights in order to spend an entire day at Yosemite. There is no elevator (which we knew) and the young man you checked us in offered to help carry our luggage- always a plus even though we always decline.
The room was comfortable and clean, with a window that opens to the cool mountain air- our main problem during our stay was elevation sickness- be aware that Mammoth Lakes itself is over 8,000 ft above sea level, so 'coming down off the heights' will do nothing.
Everything about the Alpenhof is unique but not 'touristy hokey' and if we ever venture that high up again, we'll definitely be back!

Room Tip: No elevators! Unless you're very young and fit, request 2nd floor

Hello,

Thank you for your kind compliments. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Sorry you had to deal with altitude sickness. It often takes a few days for one to become acclimated to our climate. Drinking lots of liquids (water, pedialite, gatorade) before and during your stay in the mountains often helps. We will see you next time!
