We didn't know Mammoth at all, and we booked this hotel to stay in once we were done with a backpacking trip at Mammoth Lakes. If you're a skier, it's right at the base of the main lifts. If you're a mountain biker, it's at the base of the gondola that takes you to the top of the mountain. And if you backpack/hike, it's convenient for taking the shuttle into the park to get to your trailhead or visit Devil's Postpile. But I recommend staying in the Village at Mammoth, not here, for several reasons: 1) More options for dining and evening entertainment; and 2) Better facilities.
The staff was first-rate, very friendly and accommodating. The hotel clerk worked hard to check us in a day early when we showed up ahead of time. The bartenders and wait staff were awesome. But the food in the main dining room, for the quality, was overpriced, and they can get away with that because they're the only hotel with this location. For breakfast, I suggest ordering the breakfast burrito. It was tasty and inexpensive. Avoid the overpriced buffet. The dinner menu was limited, both at the Inn and the pub (The Yoddler). The German theme at The Yoddler was overly kitschy. Forget the kitsch and provide more options.
In town, you have many restaurants to choose from, and they're only 10 minutes away. Plus, you've got the vibe on the street that's got more energy than the Mammoth Mountain Inn.
Our room was clean, but the air conditioner didn't work. The tiles in the bathroom were cracked, and the tub floor was squishy (plumbing issues). That's really unacceptable for the price of the hotel room. The inn should really upgrade the cooling and heating system so it's energy efficient. Our room was also located near some loud machinery, most likely the laundry. I needed earplugs to sleep.
