“Great value for money - look out for bears !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We stayed there for 4 days in October 2013. Basic Best Western nbut all staff very halpful and smiling. Staff warn about leaving any signs of food in your car as bears had been known to break into cars rooting for food. None when we were there!
Well situated for Yosemite Park (which had just re-opened after the Government dispute of pay), Squaw Valley and lots of hikes locally.

There are lots of nice places to stay in Mammoth, but few are an excellent value. The Best Western of Mammoth is a great value with a staff that cares. The rooms are nicely appointed and the beds give us a great nights sleep. They also have one of the best breakfast buffets around and will even cook eggs to order upon request. We come to Mammoth often and always feel welcome at the Best Western.

This is absolutely the best Best Western Plus hotel we have stayed in. The staff at the reception is very welcoming, the overall atmosphere is cosy and both the rooms and the general areas are spotless! Wireless internet access is fast, and there is a good laundry facility. They offer an outstanding breakfast, with a variety of fresh fruit and a wide choice of cereals, buns and hot dishes. We only stayed for the night, as we had a reservation in Yosemite, otherwise we would have been happy to extend our stay for a couple of days.

I recently held a photography workshop in the eastern Sierras and used this hotel as my base lodging. From the booking/reservation process on thru our stay, I can't say enough about how well we were treated. Emily really took care of the process in a very pleasant and professional manner, even introducing herself upon my arrival.
The rooms were great. Clean, modern and comfortable. Just what we needed after a long day in the field. By the way, the breakfast included with our rooms was quite good and the price was right.
It was near decent eateries and stores making it a great location for us.
I will definitely be using this hotel for future workshop lodging for my clients.

My family and I visited your fine establishment, October 19th, 2013, there in Mammoth Lakes and have to say our overall treatment and comfort was top notch. What really impressed us and made us start our stay off on a very good note was your desk clerk employee, Pamela. She made us feel welcome the beginning we walked through the door. She gave us kind suggestions about the local area and truly made us feel like we were at home. Her friendly demeanor helped us check in early without making the situation awkward. In a world rattled with ugly complaints---I thought its time for someone such as Pamela to get a brownie point instead.

We spent 3 days here and enjoyed the complete stay. We were greeted with the most happiest people I have ever encountered at a hotel. The check in was made fun by the whole front desk.
The room gets a 5 star rating also with all the people throughout the hotel. Everyone made us feel very welcome. We are a triple diamond members at Hilton and we were treaded better her than most Hiltons. This will be our base camp next visit to Mammoth Lakes, CA.
Vickie & Pam were so helpful throughout our stay and gave us unbelievable service. When ever we entered the front door, they greeted us by our name. That is just amazing with such a large and busy hotel. We will be back in Dec.

attention.

Room Tip: 3 rd floor was very quiet

The positive are: a good location (walking distance to most restaurants, shops, microbrewery), great staff at the desk, comfortable and relatively large and rooms. The few negatives are the lack of view from most rooms, noise from the parking lot early in the morning and a below average breakfast. The latter has been commented by other reviewers and disputed from the manager. I found that the dining room was unappealing, the doors opened 10 min later than expected, the quality of food was average and the staff efficiency and attitude far different from the excellent one at the front desk.

Room Tip: Avoid those in the front facing the parking lot. We had bikers warming up their Harley very earlier...

Dear Marcopolo
Thank you for your review and feedback. We are in a good location for easy access to the retail and restaurants in town but that unfortunately limits how many rooms we have with a view. Please make sure to put down that special request when you book and we will try our best to get you into one of them. We have heard the comments about our breakfast menu and are adding weekly variances to our menu such as breakfast burritos and quiche. This has also come with a change in staffing which will greatly improve the breakfast experience. We hope that you make it back to see these improvements that we are making.
