“Our new favourite in Mammoth Lakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

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.

We did a stop in Mammoth Lakes while driving from Yosemite to Death Valley and chose the Mammoth Creek Inn based on reviews and price (which was rather low due to it being off season in May). The location of the hotel was good, everything was clean and nice. The room was a bit on the small side, but as you are probably not planning on staying in your room throughout your visit, it works well. I was on a constant lookout for bears after the staff welcomed us by telling us not to leave any kind of food in the car, but no bears were seen during our stay. As Mammoth Lakes is more of a winter resort, it town was really quiet, as was the hotel with its fireplace, a stay in the winter would probably be quite different.

We dropped into Mammoth Lakes after a week long camping trip. Our family of five makes staying at hotels difficult, not to mention expensive. We used tripadvisor to find a few promising hotels and started making calls. Tim impressed us from the start with his description of the room and understanding of what a family would be looking for. When we showed up, he was there to great us with hospitality you don't often find these days. The room was clean, airy, had plenty of space and amenities. Additionally, the hotel was close to everything - from John's pizza to Lake Mary to the gondolas...we enjoyed everything about the inn. Thank you Tim and the hotel staff! We'll be back for sure!

Room Tip: One side of the hotel overlooks the wilderness. Ask for that side and one of the loft suites. Ther...

We stayed here overnight on a trip from Vegas to San Francisco, we booked a sky loft which was excellent,
Great location with fantastic views. Room was very good with a comfortable bed upstairs, but the 2 sofa beds were less than comfortable.
Breakfast was good, we had our evening meal in the stove restaurant opposite which was very good home cooking.

We will definitely return here for a longer stay at some time.
Only downside was a $50 charge to my credit card bill when I returned home, baffled me a bit really as everything was ok when I checked out. I can only assume one of my sons had a soda or some sweets from the fridge and i was charged for restocking fridge, who knows? Life's too short, we have a saying "don't sweat the small stuff"

We had the pleasure of being greeted by Tim, the manager. Super friendly and aims to please. After staying at Shilo and Quality Inn, we were disappointed with the cleanliness and the unfriendliness of the front desk staff. No feeling of being welcome at those hotels. We were pleasantly surprised on the welcome we received at Mammoth Creek Inn. Very zen spa atmosphere. Full gym with great equipment . Rooms are all remodeled, great clean bath tub! Entire place smelled and looked great. The continental breakfast was better then the others, looked and tasted great. They offered fresh fruit, meats, eggs, oatmeal etc! The fresh cookies and lemonade offered to the guests put us over the top. And last thing the view from our room was a meadow and trees unlike the ugly roof tops or apartment building we had at the "others". We can wait to return!

I think this is the best hotel we have ever been in. We travel often and this hotel was a pleasant surprise. When we arrived we were greeted by very friendly and courteous staff. The hotel itself is beautiful. Our room was comfortable. The lounge has a fire place and leather sofas. We found ourselves relaxing there in the evening. There was complimentary coffee, lemonade, water, and cookies in the lounge all day. They had continental breakfast each morning. We were excited to see a bear walking in the parking lot late at night. We are looking forward to staying there again. My son loved our trip there. -Cindy and Alfred P.

My kids and I had a great stay at Mammoth Creek Inn. We found the room to be clean, updated and very spacious. The Inn is located within walking distance of several restaurants and a market. We also drove to our fishing destinations within minutes. We participated in many of the summer activities that Mammoth has to offer and enjoyed coming back to our room to relax or spend some time in the jacuzzi/sauna. The staff here is wonderful and very helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to book a room again.
