I chose this hotel due to the proximity to the Mammoth Lakes attracitons & Yosemite.
I stayed four nights and all the other reviews raving over the owner, Young Kim, are absolutely right. He takes an average hotel and makes it special. Every morning he would ask me my plans for the day and when I returned, would ask how I enjoyed the day. He knew all his guests by name, which is impressive considering that there are 40 rooms. Ask to meet his dog, who is the most friendly Chihuahua I've ever met!!
The breakfast area is small so it may mean that you have to share a table with other guests. I found this to be a positive, not a negative as I met people from Scotland, Germany & Israel by sharing a table.
Since Mr. Kim just took over the property in October 2009, there is some updating and renovating to be done - and it is getting done. It is unreasonable to expect an overnight transformation.
However, if you are not a picky traveler, and are interested in an inexpensive place in an expensive city - this is the place for you.
One word of warning - there is no elevator so if you (or a member of your party) has mobility issues, request a room on the ground floor.
Mammoth Lakes is a great city, in a beautiful location, with lots of restaurants, shopping & activities. The hotel is convenient to Mammoth Ski Resort, Devil's Postpile National Monument, Mono Lake, and about 30 quick minutes to Yosemite.
