“A nice place to stay”
Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here for one night and it met all our needs. The room was very clean and large and the location was conveniently situated in mammoth lakes. There was plenty of parking.

Breakfast was fine and the staff were nice and helpful. There was coffee in the room too so it ticked all our boxes .

We were on a motorcycle road trip with no reservations when we arrived in Mammoth. We spotted a restaurant and bar that looked nice so we wanted a hotel close by so we could stretch our legs and walk to dinner. We found this hotel right across the street. Check in was quick, friendly and the staff even offered us a free appetizer coupon for the restaurant we wanted to try. The room was clean, spacious, and well appointed for the price which was reasonable. There was even a refrigerator and microwave as well as the coffee maker. The remote control for the TV was even a surprise as it was eco-friendly and sanitize-able. We had trouble turning on the TV and called the front desk about it. Response time was excellent as someone was knocking on the door within 3 minutes to assist us. Super customer service! The beds are comfortable and clean. There is an indoor pool and Jacuzzi, free breakfast and covered or open parking. The laundry facility was clean and security was very good. There was also a small gym with visitor only access. We would stay here again and recommend it to all our friends and to anyone who wants a really great hotel experience.

Room Tip: Rooms on second floor are accessible from the parking level if you don't want to climb stairs.

I stayed one night in a king size room and it was lovely. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and well equipped and the hotel was well located. The breakfast was pretty good, the food was cooked fresh and there was ample choice. If in the area I would recommend this hotel for a nights stop.

We arrived in Mammoth with no hotel bookings, and this was the first hotel we came across with vacencies. Free car parking was available and we were offered a choice of rooms and check in was very quick. The room was large and had good facilities and spotlessly clean. The staff were extremely attentive and friendly and we extended our stay for another night. Breakfast was a basic buffet but had everything we wanted and was included in our room price. Overall, very impressed, would we stay here again, definately yes.

This was my first visit here en route across California on a road trip with my Dad - Check in was easy and friendly, and the on-site parking is great as it's close to the Hotel entrance. Sadly the pool was out of use which was one of the main reasons we had booked there, so that was a disapointment. The room I had was large, clean and comfortable, over looking the mountains at the back of the hotel. Despite the time of year it was rather chilly out so we stayed in and ate at the small restaurant located onsite. They had a Indian chef in especially that night (as they seem to have a few nights a week) and WOW - I live in the UK and I've triend lots of different curries - this meal was excellent and great value for money. If the Indian menu is on offer the night you are there - you must try it. The wifi in the hotel works ok, but was a little intermitent, but all in all a pleasant stay in a beautiful part of CA.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the side of the hotel facing the mountains - the sunrise was breathtaking!

My group has been traveling to Mammoth Lakes for the past 20 years. Over 5 years ago, we started staying at the Best Western which provides a spacious and comfortable meeting room for our lectures. Emily the manager makes it very easy for me to coordinate the symposium for my group. I just give her a call, tell her our preferred dates, and she reserves our meeting room and guest rooms. Her attention to our needs makes my job as a symposium coordinator much easier and I never have to worry about the details of staying at the Best Western. If we have a problem, the staff immediately fixes it for us and is always attentive to our needs.

The Best Western has been a clean and comfortable place to stay. It is easy access to the Twin Lakes cross country ski area where I enjoy spending my time away from my meeting. I always enjoy fueling up on the continental breakfast before heading out to ski.

During our winter meeting, the staff keep the parking lot clear of snow for easy in and out driving and the outdoor parking is not far from several different entrances to the hotel.

Dear Chris W,
Thank you so much for your excellent review!! We love having your symposium with us every spring and love making the arrangements for your group to have a great time. For as easy as I make it for you, your being organized makes it easy for me, Thank you!

I invite all groups 6 rooms and above to contact me to arrange a discounted rate as well as any need such as meeting space in our 900 sq foot room or catering. During the summer, we enjoy motorcycle or sports car rallys, tour buses, family reunions, weddings, hiking clubs and workshops. In the winter, ski clubs or school trips. With the proximity to Yosemite NP and Mammoth Mountain as well as the abundance of nature, Mammoth Lakes is an excellent place for all kinds of groups.

Thank you again Chris and I look forward to seeing you in March.

The hotel is in downtown Mammoth, (7000 population). If you go during skiing time it is close to some of the best skiing in the country. Also in driving distance to Yosimony national park. One of the best breakfasts I have had at a Best Western. The service desk employees leave a little to be desired. Beautiful indoor pool. We had a third floor suite, with a jacuzzi tube. The price was about average for the area and the type of accommodation we had.

Room Tip: Our suite had a kitchen, there are no grocery stores in Mammoth. You can get groceries at the drug s...
