“A Very Good Base Camp”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

The rooms are comfy as are the beds. Insulated for the winter months, with no A/C the room at the time of our busy was stuffy when there was no breeze outside. There is a DVD player in the rooms. WiFi, check. The jacuzzi was just fine and I have no unnamable rashes from using it.

The bar in the basement was VERY convenient and offers splendid happy hour specials. The attached restaurant focused on a bavarian style menu and was so good, we ate there both nights.

Old hotel, but friendly staff. The room is very much as i expected. The room is good size, but the bathroom is quite small. We stay in this hotel on the way to Yosemite national park.

Advantages:
- Clean
- Nice rooms
- Amazing jacuzzi on the roof, overlooking the ski slopes / woodland
- Nice breakfast of fresh fruit and some pastries
- Free parking
- Close to local attractions, but you still need a car

Disadvantages:
- Promised balcony, fireplace, wifi, HDTV, DVD player, radio, double sink. Received ground floor room with none of these amenities. When queries, we were told only our 'valued customers receive this' and there were no room available

Would I return? Only if I got what was promised and an apology.

Room Tip: Make sure you get what was advertised online.

Dear Guest, I apologize if you felt misled in any way. We clearly state all general amenities of the hotel on our website and then further list specific amenities based on each room type. For example king and queen rooms are generally on the ground floor and will not have a balcony. All rooms however do have flat screen TV"S, free WiFi, radio and, double sinks. We would never reserve better rooms for valued customers and don't have any such policy in place! What we do however is charge more for deluxe rooms such as King rooms and those with fireplaces or jetted tubs. Again, I apologize if you felt misled in any way. Please contact us direct and we would be happy look deeper into your reservation and provide you a free night if we accidentally placed you in a different room than you booked. Sincerely, Joseph Mueller

I was a bit worried before coming to this hotel, as I wasn't sure about what to think...
But once we got there, we had a wonderful surprise.
The hotel is very nice indeed!
Terrific beds, huge room, nice bathroom, very nice breakfast, very kind staff.
Wow! Everything went out just as expected.
The location is superb, the views to the mountains in the morning were priceless.
Would definitely come back.

Our third floor room no elevator, was small but pleasant. The bathroom fixtures weren't all connected (sink top and mirror), and overall the room was a bit small and cramped. I will review the restaurant separately, but it was not all I had hoped. The people were nice, but it was just too much effort going up and down the stairs for the ambiance of the hotel.

Stayed here on our way from Yosemite to LA to break up the trip. Rooms are clean and nice, staff was very friendly. 20 dollars for a 3 course dinner during the summer if you're staying in the hotel! Bar has a great selection of beer. Food in the restaurant was really good too.
Continental breakfast was a lot of fresh fruit and toast, but not bad compared to what other hotels claims continental breakfast to be.

Small room, comfy bed. Tiny bathroom.
Breakfast was THE worst I've ever seen on offer, they may as well say they don't do it. I had coffee ad left.
Location is beside the slope but miles off the main food and drinks area.
Also we had a bear get into our car and wreck the back seat. Granted we were careless leaving the car unlocked but the hotel staff never mentioned a thing about bears during check in!
There maybe better places to stay in the area

Dear Guest and any future Guests! Mammoth is located in the mountains and in bear country. We are famous for them and generally coexist very with our wildlife. We do post a sign at the front door as well as in the reception area and even attempt to verbally tell guests not to leave food in their car. I also do understand your frustration as we currently have a second year cub that has very poor manners! We have notified our bar specialist and your vehicle is only one of many in Mammoth that has had an encounter with this bear. All had food in them and all had their doors unlocked.
Regarding the breakfast, it is now the better than ever! We've taken note that guests wanted a better place to have breakfast so we've moved it into the dinning room and expanded on it significantly. It now includes home made granola, freshly baked zucchini bread, wheat toast, milk, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit, two juices, coffee and tea.
Thanks, Joseph Mueller
