- Scenic gondola takes guests to the 11,053-foot summit, which offers 360-degree views

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
My family enjoys staying here.Extremely close to Main Lodge. Gorgeous Lobby and upstairs family restaurant. Gorgeous bar that stays open late. Excellent food. The staff are all very accommodating, very friendly. The front desk staff are great, and its very easy to check in. The room we had faced the mountain, it was a two bed loft with a balcony. Perfect and fun! very clean and cozy! The second building with the pool is also very fun and very clean. Just steps from the Main Lobby. Many different variety of rooms to fit our needs depending on how many people we travel with.Just a great place all around. Id like to add that there were two imparticular, Monique...absolutely delightful young lady! There was a man, i think Anthony, Yikes, I could be wrong, but splendid guy!Thank You! There also is a fabulous little store with cute little bistro tables . They serve excellent soup,chilli, breakfast burritos, salds, pastries, you name it.Delicious!
Great hotel and right next to the Mammoth ski lifts.
Dena at the front desk made all the difference for my brief stay.
The room had a great view of the ski slopes, in the room coffee, very clean and neat.
Even a woolly mammoth on the table as you enter the hotel room.
Very quiet room as well !
We had an amazing stay at Mammoth Mountain Inn. We absolutely Love it here. From the moment we arrived we felt like this was a home away from home. Brooke at the front desk, checked us into our room. She was professional, kind and really helpful. You can tell she wanted to make sure our stay there was great.
The Lobby has a beautiful fireplace that makes for a great place to relax while getting ready to meet up with friends or business partners. Our room was awesome and every staff member we passed on the way to our room greeted us with a smile and a friendly hello. We were only able to stay for a few days but we will definitely plan for a longer stay here next time. We highly recommend staying here..
For us is becoming a tradition to enjoy Thanksgiving at Mammoth, this year I did start my homework early and reserved in advance (almost two months) to take advantages of the package lift, lodging. We arrived Wednesday before Thanksgiving Day, and we drove all the way from LA to Mammoth and enjoy the beautiful landscape of the trip.
We usually stayed at the Mammoth Mountain Inn not just because of the convenience of the slopes in front of the hotel and the fantastic view from our room window, but for the courtesy of all the staff that works there, the experience is like really be at home surrounded by your beloved ones.
The staff that works at the MMI is extraordinary; especially mention to Cade, Front Desk Manager, he always remembers us, he received us with a big smile that makes us feel that you are arriving home.
When I made the reservation ( two months in advance), I ask for a specific king-loft room that we usually stayed and Cade gave it to us.
During our stay there I got a little accident on the slopes, and Cade helped us with the first aid kit, later he called to our room to follow up how was everything, he offered some DVD's to entertain me. Thank you very much, Cade you are an outstanding member of the MMI.
A BIG thanks to Dana Ward; she is one of a kind, always happy to help, her kindness is impressive.
We forgot to reserve at the restaurant for the Thanksgiving dinner, and when we realized that we haven't do it, it was too late, when I called the restaurant was completely booked. I talked to Dana, and she found the way to squeeze us there an arrange a table for two at the last minute. Can you believe that? Dana Thank you very much, I'll never forget that.
Other guys who deserved special recognition are Weston and Tyler from the bellboy's station, always smiles and happy to help, btw Tyler thanks for the suggestion on a restaurant in town to have breakfast in our way home, we went to the Good Life Cafe in the Old Mammoth Road, and it was superb.
A few things that I will like to see being improved are:
1.- The little store/cafe inside the MMI,
- It looks so empty concerning food; the variety is minimal, only one brand of a protein bar, there are tons out there.
- More healthy/Paleo diet, MMI has to be more conscious of food trends( Whole30 food, Paleo Diet, Vegan)
- More healthy snacks, and beverages varieties.
This little place is crucial because after spent a considerable amount of time on the slopes, this place is the first connection with food/ snacks, before having dinner, I'm confident you guys can do better.
2.- I would like to see an improvement in the Menu of the main restaurant, the food has to be as the Yodler House, The food at the Yodler house is impressive, and with tons of variety, you guys can do better.
Well, see you soon early next year guys!
Thanks for letting us enjoy this Thanksgiving weekend and made so memorable!
