Perched 9,000 feet up in California’s Sierra Nevada range, this well-established hotel has welcomed guests for more than 50 years. The 216-room ski lodge is just steps from the slopes of Mammoth Mountain and the breathtaking gondola that whisks visitors up to the 11,053-foot summit. Several types of accommodations with Queen and King beds are spread throughout the buildings, and they feature amenities such as plush 300-thread-count linens, deluxe bath products, flat-screen TVs, iHome media stations and earth-tone decor that complements the gorgeous snowcapped mountain vistas outside the windows. Relax in the hotel’s Jacuzzi or swimming pool, and when hunger strikes, grab a bite at the Mountainside Grill — the restaurant serves hearty American fare such as bacon-wrapped rack of lamb topped with mint chimichurri and creamy rosemary mash, or cast iron–seared salmon with cauliflower puree. Burn off all the calories at the on-site fitness center, or slap on your skis and spend an afternoon on the slopes — they’re right at your doorstep.
In the Area
Mammoth Mountain is home to around 25 dining and bar options ranging from vegetarian spots and sushi bars to Bavarian restaurants and casual food courts. After a day on the mountain, ease the soreness away at any of several spas in the town of Mammoth Lakes, including Simply Massage Body Boutique, located right in the village. In winter, take off into the backcountry on a snowcat excursion that concludes with wine, cheese and fresh fruit, or try snow tubing and snowmobiling. In the summer there’s hiking, mountain biking and kids adventure camps. Duffers can head to the Sierra Star Golf Course, which is surrounded by snowcapped peaks. For even more outdoor fun, Yosemite National Park is just 45 minutes to the north, and Devil’s Postpile National Monument and Rainbow Falls are approximately a 15-minute drive from the hotel.
How to Get There
Another fantastic stay at the MMI! Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. The feat of clearing and assisting guest during 10-12 feet of snowfall seems to be routine for the staff and management at the hotel. I loved my room and the view from the patio. Breakfast was delicious and was the right fuel to handle such an amazing powder day. The night shuttle service that is offered to the village is on time and in what seemed like a brand new vehicle. Very comfortable. I love the Jacuzzi area! I like the pantry. I bought a great new sweatshirt and the coffee and pastries were delicious!
The location for me is the absolute best option at Mammoth. I love being so close to the lifts and the main lodge. I have an IKON pass so I will be trying to come back as much as possible. Thank you for the great stay!! See you soon!!
I've stayed at the Mammoth Mountain Inn many times throughout the years. Its a great place to stay! Right next to the lifts you can literally ski right up to the main lobby doors. The rooms are always clean and well taken care of. There's nothing better than staying up at 9000 feet and waking up to a beautiful Sierra snowstorm!
Dena was so nice and helped us so much. Super friendly very profisional and enjoyed her smile. i cant wait to go back to Mammoth Mountain Inn . I will be staying here every year as long as I live and can snowboard.
I highly recommend Mammoth Mountain Inn and we stay here often. The hotel rooms are a little dated and need sound proofing as you can hear the people above and hall way noise but the public space is very nice and clean. The location can't be beat for access to the mountain and gondola. The staff is amazing!! Kate in the restaurant is superb and gives 5 star service. Eric, Ryan, Roy and the other valets are terrific. We were there during a blizzard and the valets helped dig our car out, offered us wonderful suggestions on how to drive home safely. The desk staff were very accommodating. Yodler restaurant staff are great as well. Food a little pricey but great service. The Inn needs to prepare better for blizzards as I saw many families being turned away by the restaurants with no where else to go for food. Thought management could have accommodated a little better under extreme conditions. But overall this is an excellent place to stay
This place spoils you........park in garage, and you don't have to drive until you leave....
great breakfast, dinner, drinks...valet service in lobby for skis/boots....30 steps from front door to slopes...professional/friendly staff make you feel like family.....
managers like Sergio and Heidi are naturals at customer service, and i always
look forward to seeing them when i visit, usually 5-6 trips per season....
