We booked this hotel from Australia without really knowing the area. We took a flight to Mammoth from LA and Michael the General Manager was waiting to pick us up from the airport with a friendly face and lots of tips and recommendations on how we could make the most of our 6 day stay. Added to that he was exceptionally accommodating allowing us to stay a few more nights in the same room at a lower rate than we had booked thruogh expedia. Point 1; book direct. Plus's - room, rate, location, (free transport to the slopes right outside the door, next to the supermarket, shops and restaurants) staff very friendly, pick up fom airport. Areas where could potentially be a little improved - continental breakfast was ok but not fantastic, spa wasn't as hot as we'd have liked, but has recenltly been rennovated and works if people have been using it before you. I'd probably have booked a larger room if we weren't on so much of a budget as for 6 days would have been nice to haev some cooking facilitites. Definitely worth a visit. Thank you Michael! we'll be back.
