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
Jim Blasey is the man! My fiancé and I drove up at 4 am to start our vacation in mammoth lakes only to check in to the most disgusting airbnb, with an Airbnb host that ghosted us and left us high and dry. We scrambled all night long to find a hotel in Mammoth and ended up here! After sharing our horrible experience Jim, he took it into his own hands to put a smile back on our face and made our entire night! His hospitality and customer service was so impeccable we will be back here every time we visit! Seeing someone go above to save our Mammoth experience meant the world to us. I have never, out of all my hotel visits experienced someone as thoughtful as Jim! He really took care of us and was exactly what we needed! I’m so grateful for him. Mammoth is lucky to have him! Very professional and High quality service with welcoming arms!
I stayed here with my dog for one night after visiting Yosemite. I was exhausted and hungry, and asked if they could move me to the first floor in the main building, and they did with no problem. The staff in the bar and grill upstairs are super nice, and my cheeseburger was awesome. Rooms are really cool because I had a sliding glass door that led to a huge yard with a wonderful view of the mountains. Be sure to clean your car of food and drink as they have mischievous bears in the area. Lastly, Ryan, who helped me with my bags and was wonderful, gave me great travel tips so I could see the oldest trees in the country, called Big Pines, on my way to Las Vegas!
Hotel was booked by Travel Agency. My friend and I were in love with this antique and elegant atmosphere. Hotel provided welcome refreshments when we arrived. It also provided free ice, PC, hot tubs and swimming pool. Ample lobby in the Main Building with warmth fireplace. Dinning Service is friendly and made you like a VIP.
The most important is when I forgot my two bracelets and called Hotel, the housekeeping Dept. Heidi found the items and front desk Taylor as well as Shipping Dept David shipped it back to me. Taylor also sent me couple emails to confirm the status.It is on the way now.
