How to Get There
We’ve been coming to mammoth for 20+ years and have stayed at Juniper Springs before. The quality of our room 225 Sunstone was so incredibly poor it is a crime that mammoth is charging $842/night, a five star price for a room that is no better than 2 stars. The furniture was so outdated in the room - the couch cushions were squished down and warn out and it looked like a couch you would find on the side of the road with a free sign attached. The rest of the furniture was just as bad. Our fireplace would not work - we called at 4:30pm to get it fixed as our room was absolutely freezing and there was no other heat source in the main room. We had to call 3 times before someone finally came after 7pm. We had to wear our ski clothes in the room to stay warm. They said they were sold out and only had one maintenance person on duty. Shame on you - if you are sold out and charging an arm and a leg for a room - staff up appropriately to service your guests!! Next day we visited the jacuzzi that had cigarette buds floating around as well as other garbage. Disgusting. Oh and we called for pool towels because we had zero provided in our room. Asked for 6 - 1 per person in our room - housekeeping brought 3 and said they didn’t have anymore left. Hallways, elevators - dirty and worn down. Come on mammoth - time to renovate and get your service level up!!!
I stayed there for a week.
Two days before my departure the an extracharge was made to my account (for the same value as the entire stay), so I talked to a lady at the front desk at the moment I knew the charge was done but she couldn't tell me nothing except the only charge she could see is the one made the day I arrived. The day after (two days before my departure) I talked to the Front Desk Manager, Craig Sterling, about this. He told me it was an authorisation hold and it will be refunded in a couple of days.
A week after leaving Juniper Springs I wrote an e-mail to Mr. Sterling and I haven't received any answer to it yet.
Yesterday, (two weeks since I left Juniper Springs) I talked to Mr Sterling through the phone (after trying for another three days, but either he was eating or he had left early) and the answer I got is that they don't know why I've been charged twice and that I must report it to my bank (of course it was already done).
Nothing spectacular about the resort except the location. It's right next to Eagle so can't beat it. Rooms however are a bit run down but spacious and comfortable. The refrigerator was pretty loud at night but not much louder than some of the fans you find at other hotels. This one, i couldn't notice any heater noises. Fold out couch was a queen so i liked that. Kitchen is convenient. But their ski locker was fantastic with it's own entry/exit. Parking garage is underground so again very convenient. We stayed during MLK weekend so price was a bit high but so was everything in the area. We stayed at a condo previously about 1/2 a block away but that half block you didn't have to walk in your ski boots was worth it!
My GF and I stayed in a studio with a queen bed for 3 nights at approx. $150/night. The bed was exceptional, as was the endowment of the kitchen. Very nice furniture and a reasonably large balcony only added to our comfort. Only the fireplace was a bit of a letdown. I knew it was gonna be of the gas variety, but even for that it was a bit meek. Really liked the common area outside, particularly the pool/jacuzzis and the common Weber bbqs, which we used frequently to grill American-sized steaks. :) The inside common areas were a bit quaint, but I am willing to chalk that up as rustic. The reception staff was friendly, though in a professional rather than heartwarming way. Still, overall a very satisfying stay.
Awesome time at Juniper resort in Mammoth, California. Spectacular view of the snowy mountains, great staff, clean and neat rooms and yes skiing service for all is great. Lessons for all ages and the staff are very professional. We had a blast and definitely returning!!!
