“Excellent value for what you pay for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

This is a nice little motel that is in a great location. The huge bonus for me is that they take dogs for free! The service was excellent and the rooms were clean and warm. The beds were surprisingly comfortable, although the pillows were just marginal....but the most noteworthy thing about the room? The water pressure in the shower was phenomenal! I actually had to turn the water volume down..unheard of!

We - a Danish senior couple on a car tour across the US - were heading for San Francisco and stopped at Motel 6 in Mammoth Lakes. Had been in Kingman East Motel 6 as well.
Again a pleasant surprise. Very good value for the money.
Clean, inviting and little things that were not in order were attended to immediately. Lightbulbs out of order.
Everything you need: TV, microwave, fridge, internet and a nice bed with cotton sheets, clean.
Everything was clean, as a matter of fact.
Enjoyable.

I've stayed at this Motel 6 numerous times over the past 2 decades. In all cases the rooms were fairly clean and in decent condition (as in not falling apart), and my last stay was no different. The motel was not particularly full on my last stay, but I don't recall the guests as being particularly rowdy here. I always got a good night's rest after a day of skiing.

Yes the pillows suck and the blanket and towels are thin and the bed has that awful looking bedspread but that's just part of the Motel 6 experience. You can always bring your own towels and pillows and even blankets if it bothers you that much. For the money (and Mammoth is notorious for expensive yet subpar lodging) I can live with these shortcomings. That said, management should note a few things.

This Motel 6 was probably remodeled about 10 years ago and it could use a bit of a facelift again. The toilet and tub were OK but the sink had numerous cracks around the drain. The double-pane windows are a welcome relief from the old single-pane ones it used to have, but as always the door doesn't particularly seal well. Not a problem in summer, but definitely an issue in winter when I usually visit Mammoth. I had to run the heater pretty much the entire night.

Another issue is that the outlets are extremely worn anld wouldn't hold a plug anymore. The few that did work properly were already taken up for the TV and the fridge/microwave. The TV in my room was somewhat problematic in that you would only get snow for a few minutes until it warmed up. It's an old CRT-style TV and perhaps Motel 6 should finally upgrade these to flat screens.

I will continue to stay here though, and for people who aren't picky about their lodgings it's sufficient.

For the money you pay, you get seriously good customer service. They really charge the least in town and have a great cancelation policy. It's motel 6 though, it doesn't feel like home, the sheets/blanket don't feel new and the towls are very thin and not soft.. good location.. I always come here when I'm at Mammoth by myself.

We booked this upon our NYE trip where most hotels were already fully booked. At first we were skeptical, but decided we wouldn't even be in the room most of our trip so it should work. Upon arrival, we were greeted by friendly front desk staff. Our room was very clean and more updated than we expected.There was no weird activity surrounding the hotel and the other guest were normal, so we felt safe. The village and restaurants are in walking distance and there's a bus line nearby that will also take you into town for free! The best part about this hotel is they acknowledged my 15% off coupon without a hassle (even though it was a holiday) and they accept pets which is a huge plus in my books! I would definitely return to this hotel again the future!

We stayed here in July 2012. The pool was suppose to be warm but was ice cold. Smelly rooms. Had to ask front desk for hairdryer (they only had one to loan out). OVERPRICED FOR THE HOTEL. We booked online through their website. Our printed confirmation showed we paid for 3 rooms all with 2 queen beds, however when we checked in they said it was 3 King rooms. They said they don't have rooms with 2 queen beds (EVEN THOUGH THAT'S WHAT THEIR WEBSITE CONFIRMATION SAID WE PAID FOR) and we would have to pay more for 2 full beds as they were more! Our kids were hungry, it was late, we were tired of arguing and paid more

You can never go wrong with motel 6.......mammoth is 79 dollars prime time, little more than 29 dollars we spent in Mojave..anyway staff is hard working, place is clean and quiet. You can easily walk to all places to eat and shop. Ski shuttle is right out front. Same with mountain bike tram....roll all the way to hotel without peddling. Coffee is hot and always ready to roll. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Above pool nice. East lot also fun to watch bears at night.
