“Value for Money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Family run Lodge. King rooms good size. Shops within walking distance. Only thing I would say is we discovered that one in five people may suffer from Altitude Sickness because of the Altitude at Mamoth Lakes .Lighting in seating area very poor, to use a laptop one had to sit on the bed

Room Tip: King Rooms are a nice size, with separate seating area

The Alpenhof Lodge is a great, family friendly place to stay in Mammoth! The rooms were spacious, updated with modern furniture and very comfortable and quiet. The restaurant and bar on site are very convenient and provided some nice entertainment. This family owned and operated lodge is one of a kind and you are welcomed from the moment you enter the door. The pride of ownership is obvious as they were working on updating the pool in anticipation of the summer crowds! The location is fabulous, within close walking distance to the village. Overall, a great place to stay with children or for a couple get-away.

This lodge is anything but a lodge. The room was small, and the cottage-cheese celings were both stained with water and scraped in various places. Drapes had stains and a hole. Two poles by the bedside masqueraded as lamps, and one crooked picture of a rabbit hung in the corner. We could hear our neighbors above us. Based upon the footsteps on the ceiling, I think they were sick, as they continuously headed for the bathroom from 12:00 a.m to 3:00 a.m. Each flush was heard throughout the night. The sounds and sights of the room were reminescent of my dorm room in college. Cheap pine furniture decorated the room, and a small TV was snuggled tightly into the armoir. The channel changer remained in-tact thanks to Scotch tape. Billed as a place that served breakfast, you can count on watered-down juice, metallic coffee, store-bought donuts, and packaged non-flavored oatmeal. BUT, on the upside, the room was passibly clean, the water pressure good, and the location excellent. Still, for the whopping price of $250 per night, I would look elsewhere. The adjacent restaurant, Petra's, now that's another story; quite good. But I digress......

Room Tip: Ask the condition of the room ahead of time. Some rooms evidently have fireplaces. I"m assumi...

We were very impressed by the friendliness and willingness to help. The interior is in desperate need of renovations and updating, and although the rooms and fittings were quite outdated, we had a very comfortable stay. Funny old cathode ray t.v stored in the cupboard, but a perfectly acceptable level of comfort. Our advice would be to skip the breakfast in the little lobby and go to Base Camp Cafe off Main St for excellent breakfast and wonderful service.

Room Tip: We stayed upstairs with room that opens onto the main balcony that overlooks the village/street, ju...

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon tour in September. We arrived here exhausted after a 7 hour drive from Las Vegas and were delighted to find a clean, cosy family run hotel set in stunning surroundings. The hotel owner is extremely helpful and friendly with lots of ideas about how to get the most from a brief visit to Mammoth. A basic complimentary continental breakfast is provided which is a lovely touch! The surrounding mountains and lakes are just breathtaking and our stay here was one of the highlights of our honeymoon! Great little hotel!

The worst hotel I have ever stayed in! We had driven 12 hours that day so we were tired and drove up to this hotel feeling exhausted. Stupidly paid for a room on the third floor, sight unseen. We began carrying our luggage upstairs since there was no elevator and just could not believe the condition of this place: old, shabby, ugly, and NO air conditioning!! They had placed a fan at the top of the stairs which was blowing stale hot air in our faces as we walked up. It was around 90 degrees in our room and had no air circulation at all. They provided an old fan which helped a little. Our window was tiny and set deep into an alcove so provided no relief.
The clerk at the front desk spent most of his time making personal calls on his cell phone which looked very unprofessional.
The entire building should be demolished...the best thing I can say about the Alpenhof Lodge is that the sheets were clean.
We could not wait to leave the next morning.

Room Tip: Avoid this place if at all possible. Do not stay in the 3 story part of the building!
