“A lovely retreat in wonderful Mammoth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We booked Mammoth Creek at the last minute, we couldn't decide whether to opt for cheap and cheerful or go for something a little more up market. Choice in the area can be tricky because places get booked up. We went for middle of the road and couldn't have been happier with our choice.

We were delighted, we had a lovely welcome and were given a room on the 1st floor. The temperature had dropped dramatically and we were greeted with a lovely roaring fire in the lounge. We were offered a variety of suggestions on where to eat. We opted for Thai'd up just across the road, but there is plenty of choice in Mammoth.

Our room was clean, with a huge bed. We didn't have a view but we weren't that bothered since we weren't planning on spending much time in our room.

There is a lovely spa downstairs in the basement, we didn't use it as we hunted down the hot springs, but if we had stayed longer we would have made use of these facilities, I can imagine it would be exactly what you would want after a day skiing, or hiking.

Breakfast is a simple affair although exactly what we needed a bagel and coffee, if you want something warm or heated up there is a microwave. On our second night we bought back a bottle of vino and the guy on reception was more than happy to get us some glasses and locate a bottle opener.

If we come back to Mammoth we will certainly come back to the Creek Inn.

We stayed here en-route to San Francisco and had a really pleasant and comfortable stay. Staff is very friendly and helpful and the rooms are nicely decorated and modern.
Ample breakfast selection, and gorgeous spa area too.

Stayed here for one night on the way from Yosemite to Vegas. Great location, short walk to the restaurants.
Rooms are comfortable and there is a lovely spa which we found so relaxing.
Would definitely Reccommend. Great price!

We stayed here for two nights on route from San Fran to Vegas when we couldn't find a great Yosemite location in the park and Mammoth is just at the end of the Tioga pass. We are so glad we did and that we booked the master loft with the two levels. Such a great break to have a table, kitchen and separate space from the children. The apartment was huge and we enjoyed playing pool and having the tea and coffee always in reception. Breakfast was not much but we just bought some cereal and milk from the nearby supermarket. We easily occupied ourselves with some interesting sites nearby. While it was the off season of fall, most things were open and I would really recommend it as a stop on your road trip.

Room Tip: Go for the two level master loft for a treat if you can

Good hotel with good facilities however the area around it was a little run down and it was clear that it was the off season. Not very much to do or eat with in walking distance so spent most of our time in the spa and room. Friendly staff and clean rooms with excellent double glazing for a quite nights sleep.

I have to start by saying this is the best place to stay in Mammoth! I drove into Mammoth with my dog on Labor Day, without reservations or an itinerary. I found the Mammoth Creek Inn listed in the Visitors' Guide, and when I called the Manager, Michael, was instantly welcoming. The hotel is amazing! The rooms are clean and well furnished. The common areas of the hotel are wonderful. The front lobby is a great place to sit and relax after a long day, the upstairs sitting room is cozy and the third floor billiards room is a fun bonus. I spent the end of my evenings in the spa downstairs; there is a hot tub, sauna and steam room (something for everyone). I ended up spending 5 days at the Inn and I have to say I didn't want to leave. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about things to do in and around Mammoth. The manager remembered my name from the first time we talked on the phone and would always go out of his way to welcome me back from being out and about. The location of the Inn is fantastic! It's on the edge of a Wilderness Area with a creek and a wonderful walking path. The views from the Inn and the walking path are amazing no matter the time of day, but especially in the morning to watch the sunrise. There are also several restaurants and shops that are within walking distance. I can't wait to return this winter to snowboard with my friends, we're definitely getting one of the suites, which can accommodate a large group with the luxury of a full kitchen in the suite. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Mammoth, you will not be disappointed.
