On a July-August hiking trip to the Sierra Nevada Mountains we stayed at the Mammoth Creek Inn for the first two nights and the last night, coming from Australia. We were totally impressed with the hotel on all fronts. They were quick and courteous responding to my enquiries before arrival, met us at the airport to shuttle us to the hotel (and took us back there again in the afternoon on our final day.) The room was pleasant and clean, warm of course but a fan and an open window made it comfortable, even though it had been a very hot week, it is cool at night for sleeping in Mammoth Lakes. Nice bathroom and coffee making in room. The public areas were friendly and charming, with a lounge area off the foyer including a public access internet terminal, tea/coffee and lemonade and cookies served in the afternoons. Breakfasts were terrific - pastries, cereal, eggs, toast/bagels, juices, coffee/tea, ham, muffins, yoghurt, freshly cut fruit salad ... served in a cosy basement room from 7am. There is a nice jacuzzi and sauna also in the basement, and upstairs a poolroom and a nice little lounge, plus a deck area facing the mountains. It is a smaller, friendlier establishment than the Sierra Nevada Lodge where we have stayed previously, and we will definitely be staying at Mammoth Creek Inn again next time. The location was good for us as we travel without a car - it is only a block to the town shuttle (free) bus and a ten minute walk to the YARTS bus stop which takes you to Yosemite. There are lots of restaurants and shops nearby, but, being Mammoth Lakes, there is no traffic noise at night, very quiet.
