Sierra Nevada Resort & Spa

Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

This hotel is heavily populated with dogs. Can you believe people have them in their rooms. I can't believe that the hotel did not tell us before. We had one next door and it barked so much that we complained. If you like dogs you will be very happy here.

Stayed: June 2014

Stayed here overnight whilst on a coach tour. The room was pretty basic but clean and okay for overnight. Showers had water saving heads which meant little water flow. The lodge itself is well located and common areas are nice. A new restaurant next to the lodge opened the night we stayed, well presented and tasty Asian Fusuin.

Our room was what you would expect of a rustic lodge, cosy and comfortable but with no pretentions to being stylish. Our welcome was friendly and the staff helpful. We had an excellent evening meal in the lively restaurant. The location was peaceful after the bustle of Las Vegas.

I have stayed here last year around the same time and due to the experience, I made sure it stayed there again. There is an absolute sense of comfort you get by staying at the Sierra Nevada Resort. Its the cozy feel of the fire in the lodge or the aroma of hot chocolate/tea/coffee in the lobby or its the well equipped rooms that you can't wait to get back from the slopes and relax in. I was fortunate enough to stay in the Fireplace Suite again and my g/f and I couldn't be happier. It was as good as our first stay if not better. I can't image staying anywhere else when you have the perfect place to stay.

As I have mentioned in a previous review for Sierra Nevada Resort, the location is perfect for everything you need in Mammoth. There is a shuttle service to the lifts, but if you prefer to drive there, its less than 10min to any of the lifts. You are right in the center so any restaurants, bakeries, or shops are within walking distance and or a few minutes drive. There is also an on site ski rental shop which is unbelievably accommodating. The pricing for our stay was very reasonable as well. Especially when you compare what you are getting for other resorts/hotels in the area. Great value.

The staff is incredible. We were so pleased to see Kat again once we arrived. Kat is one of the most personable, caring, and easy going people we've met and I just wanted to thank her (again haha) for making this trip so wonderful as she did for us the first time. Kat, you're the best! I also had the pleasure of speaking with Jessyka (Yes, that's the correct spelling of her name) on the phone before I booked my rooms and she is also a great addition to SNR. Great staff. Can't say enough.

Overall, you're not going to stay anywhere better in Mammoth. You're in a great spot. Newly renovated rooms with modern amenities that bring you all the luxuries of a modern 4* hotel that is wrapped up in this charming lodge (resort now). The beds are extremely comfortable. The bathrooms have heated tiles. The fireplace keeps you plenty warm as the rooms are very well insulated. It was around 10-20* F during the nights/early mornings and we never got cold. The Sierra Nevada Resort has been consistent in its service, reliability, and welcoming feelings that I can't imagine staying elsewhere.

Can't wait to get back to Mammoth for the 2014/15 season!

Room Tip: If you can, see about upgrading to the Fireplace suite. Its well worth it. If not that, then ask a...

Stayed here for one night as part of a tour. Very comfortable room, though a little dated. We ate in the adjoining Rafters restaurant which offered a great evening meal and a very good value breakfast. There was another tour coach staying at the same time but the staff coped really well. There were a lack of signs directing us to different areas but a staff member pointed us in the direction of the restaurant. With the corridors all looking the same it was a bit confusing. The lodge was lovely and warm which was very welcome as it was bitterly cold outside and we had just travelled from Las Vegas where it was hot.

I visited Mammoth Lakes for the first time during the spring/summer with my girlfriend and we had a terrific weekend, filled with awesome adventures around the Lakes and Yosemite and great service at the Sierra Nevada Resort.

The lobby provides a truly unique element of the property, one that is probably hard to replicate by any other hotel in the market. A large bar and a large fireplace with plenty of seating area, a pool table, a classic chess set, complimentary beverages and coffee, and friendly front desk staff all created a great atmosphere for the check-in.

I upgraded to a fireplace suite, and let me tell you, it is worth every extra penny. The oversized room comes with a fireplace, heated bathroom floors and toilet seat, rainfall shower, and standard kitchenette. My girlfriend loved everything about the room, especially the entire feel and size of the room and we would definitely stay at the fireplace suite again.

We had dinner at the Rafters and it was a great experience. We had the artisan meat board to start and several glasses of the cab - the waiter helped us out with some great wine selections. My girlfriend ordered the rib-eye steak and I had the lamb shank, both of which were quite delicious and cooked to perfection.

The Sierra Nevada Resort underwent a large renovation last year and is operated by a truly outstanding general manager. I would definitely recommend any new travelers as well as frequent visitors to Mammoth Lakes to check out this resort.

Room Tip: Fireplace suites are the way to go! Worth every extra penny. Make sure to request a humidifier if t...
