“Ok but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2011

We stayed in a large loft room which was clean, but well used furniture, carpets and appliances. Surprised by how warm the room was when we checked in. Continental breakfast was basic coffee, muffins, cereal and without any fruits. No real charm or anything out of the usual as a place to stay, but close to town and it is located near the free trolley bus line so very convenient to get around the small town.

This is such a quaint, great place to stay. I stayed here with my girlfriend and some friends and it was much more than we expected. The rooms were very clean, spacious, and nice finishes. The lobby is very cozy to hang around the fireplace. Plus the staff was extremely friendly and helped us with everything we needed, from where to go and even provided us with their private shuttle service. Very reasonable price point and great location right on Old Mammoth Road. Cant wait to go back in the winter for the ski season!!

Pictures on the website are definitely misleading. Far from beeing a "Boutique Hotel" as it says on their van. Ask for a room with a view on the mountains otherwise you will be disappointed.
Bad isolation. Staff is nice and will try to satisfy your request.
Ridiculous breakfast options in the basement...go out and enjoy the view somewhere else instead.

I am an avid traveler, especially to Mammoth, and this hotel was wayy beyond my expectations. The staff was incredibly helpful, and the lobby was absolutely gorgeous. The billiard room was an added bonus, not to mention the complimentary snacks and breakfast. I enjoyed the use of the dry sauna after a long day and was pleased to see how clean and neat my room was made up for me. Definitely recommend and look forward to coming again soon for sure!

Stayed here with family for 2 nights during weekend in August 2011. The Inn was fully booked, check in time is 4pm. After long long drive arrived at 3.50pm, our room was not ready... waited for 40 minutes. Reception guy did apologise, but hey, respect your own check in times! And during our wait other guests arrived... and guess what... their rooms were ready. Also, the cleanliness of our deluxe loft was not perfect, room had funny odour, AC was not working, insted they have put 2 extra ventilators in the room, and they could do some maintenance from time to time. For over 200$ per night definetely not worth it. On the plus side, bed cas very comfortable, internet was free and very fast. Did not try the breakfast, which is also incuded free of charge.

This hotel's website does not do it justice. My friends and I have been here before in both the winter and summer months and have continuously remained impressed. Their deluxe loft is incredibly spacey. Two stories with nice modern furniture and a balcony with breathtaking views of the mountains. Staff is very helpful and price point is low compared to the countless amenities and superior renovations. Definitely recommend; Winter or Summer!

Room Tip: Deluxe loft was fantastic and worth the minimal increase in price.
