'The Village' is just that. A self contained purpose built village on the outskirts of Mammoth Lakes. The hotel is a collection of privately owned small apartments that are rented out and collected around a shopping and eating open air 'mall'. The rooms are basic and functional. There is no air con in the bedroom, but a ceiling fan. Assuming you are on the 2+ floor an open window will suffice in the mountain air. Beds are large, but regrettably not that comfortable ( although a matter of choice ), soft and 'bouncy'. Pillows are polyester, cheap and lumpy. A room over looking the mall area would be noisy until quite late at night. The hotel staff were helpful with our requests, although there was no bag assistance. In the village are a small number of eateries, all serving very typical US food... huge portions, smothered in mayo, cheese and salt.... OK infrequently but not every night! Mexican, BBQ etc. Mammoth is a ski resort in winter and a mountain biking mecca in summer. There are good walks off of Mammoth mountain to Twin Lakes and great food at the Tamarak Lodge. but be aware of nutters on mountain bikes who are having a great time in near suicidal down hill sections.... BUT the whole area is very dusty. Walking, mountain biking or just being involves inhaling huge quantities of dust. The underlying geology is volcanic pumice hence the dust.
