“Reliable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

My experience
My family has been staying at MSRC yearly for the last ten years (multiple times per year in the last two years). We return every year because we have been very happy with the service, the units are comfortable and the location is great.

Rooms
We have stayed in various units throughout the years. There are very large units that accommodate many people and smaller units that are great for two. When we have traveled in a large group, we get 2 to 3 rooms in order to meet all of our needs--my husband and I will get our own studio unit, adults with kids get their own unit and multiple couples get a unit with two private rooms. This approach has been a great way of traveling and spending time with loved ones while at the same time having a retreat for privacy. Although some units have recently been updated others look like they may have some of their original flooring and cabinetry. Some units have stunning views and others look out to a neighboring building. Some units have very well stocked kitchens and other are satisfactory for most types of cooking/baking. Some units have a good number of movies and games, other do not. The pictures and descriptions are very useful for finding a suitable unit for your needs/wants. Although the deluxe units that we have stayed in definitely feel a lot nicer than the regular units, there are some great regular units that have become favorites. (I am selfishly omitting our favorites)

Amenities
The pool and spas are fabulous after a day of Mammoth Mountain activities. There is a large spa that fits about 8 comfortably. There are tennis courts which we have yet to experience because of all the great things to do in and around Mammoth. Each unit comes with one assigned covered parking (garage) and one unassigned uncovered parking. There is a BBQ available at the pool.

Room Tip: Check MSRC's website for the property map. Buildings B, D, E, F and G have great views (units th...

My family and I have stayed at Mammoth Ski and Racquet Club on numerous occasions in the past to celebrate the 4th of July and really never had a bad experience. True as some of the posts indicated, some units are more rundown than others, but I asked the office staff to pick me a out a nicer unit, which they did. They also reserved a nice updated unit for another family we were vacationing with. When we arrived the unit we originally booked had problems with the fridge, so they kindly moved us into a nicer "deluxe" unit and even helped move all our things. Things come up that are unforeseeable and they did what they could to make things right. We'll be back again next year and the year after that.

Looked forward to staying close to Canyon ski lodge. # 41 cannot be recommended for anyone who would like to read (which we like to do in the evenings after being on the slopes). Inefficient lighting everywhere from living area to the loft where beds and bunk beds were. The entry from the garage areas was also dimly lit down the hallways. We were instructed to leave towels inside the door of condo if you wanted them changed out.I even had them outside the door with a note and no one came to change them. I called 2X and finally was told I better come to the office to get replacements, this was during a snow storm!! Found out later staff had gone to the condo directly across from ours (they HAD to have seen the towels in a pile) but never ours. Many vacancies so no excuse for this!

Great place for families. We've been coming to Mammoth Ski and Racquet club for over 10 years. They offer many different size condos to fit different family needs. We had 6 families on one trip and we were all able to find condos all together. Great jacuzzi large enough to handle large groups. The kids/teens love the game room. Also great location, close enough to walk to the ski slopes and back for lunch at condo. Also there's a ski trail to the village.
Staff very pleasant and accommodating. Affordable. Inside and outside parking . A big plus for our family since we have a econoline conversion van that won't fit into garage parking. Slight hill driveway,might need chains when snowing

We spent a long weekend there and were very impressed with how clean and quiet it was. We had a great view and the staff was the most friendly and accommodating we have every experienced. We walked to the lodge/lifts and getting there was easy..on the main street. Five stars!

We have been staying at the MSRC every winter for the last 6 years. It has a great location and quick access to Canyon Lodge. The units are very comfortable and have amenities similar to being at home. The staff and Management have been consistently courteous during each visit to Mammoth. Mammoth Ski and Racquet will continue to be our first choice.

This is the first time that I have written a hotel review, but I feel that fellow family vacationers should be warned about this place. We have actually stayed at Mammoth Ski and Racquet in the past, but each year the units are more run-down and worst of all the customer service is now terrible. We had trouble with our unit : no lighting in the living area (looks like owner removed from wall and never replaced), VCRs both did not work, wi-fi did not work. When we were disappointed to find that we could not read or do anything in the TV room area because there were no light - it was dark!- we learned that they have a new system. Office only open from 9-5 (this is a ski resort...where the lifts close at 4, so hard to make this work) and if you have after hours issues, YOU MUST WALK TO THE OFFICE TO USE THE SPECIAL PHONE OUTSIDE THE OFFICE??? What if it's cold, snowing, late, traveling alone with small kids? I guess this is to discourage you from having issues. The next day, I did race back from skiing just before the office closed to discuss the problems and their reply was that each unit is individually owned and that it's up to the owner to make sure that lights, dvd's ,etc are provided properly. They gave me a bare-bulb 60 watt lamp from under the desk and said that was all that they could do. So BEWARE, what you see on the website, what you read listed in amenities, what you think that you are paying for...is not necessarily there and the office is not responsible. Since you cannot deal with the owner and the office is not responsible, it is a great system for them, but the guest is out of luck. EXCEPT to warn other potential guests...so, if you like having a problem with your rental and having to go out into the night to walk in the snow to the office phone or if you like the mystery of paying for certain accommodations and then being "surprised" by what you find...stay here. If not, there are many other options in Mammoth - keep looking. Especially look for a better management company that might understand about customer service!!!

JeffDMammothLakes, Owner of Rental Company at Mammoth Ski and Racquet Club, responded to this review, March 24, 2010
We are sorry that this guest did not enjoy their stay with Mammoth Ski & Racquet Club. Each unit at MS&RC is individually decorated by it's owner. This particular unit has been in our rental pool for several years with no complaints regarding lighting. However, when this guest reported the problem, we contacted the owner who then declined to change the lighting in the unit or purchase additional lighting. We provided the guest with an extra lamp we had in storage. Our emergency phone is located about 40 yards from the unit this guest stayed in making it convienent to obtain after hours help. We also provide a voice mail system for leaving messages and can be contacted during office hours by phone. Wifi at MS&RC is the secondary option for connection to the Internet. We provide a wireless signal to all our guests, but since some guests have difficulty using a wireless connection, our primary Intenet connection is a direct connection to the modem that is installed in all our units. For a better idea of the overall rating of MS&RC by past guests of this managment company, please refer to flipkey.com. Each of our units are individually rated by guests who receive a special rating link via email after their stay. You'll find recent reviews giving us an overall 4 star rating.
