Mammoth Lakes is a very expensive place to visit for a Christmas skiing trip but, as a family of four, we wanted to go. We searched around the internet for "cheap" accomodation and found the Travelodge. We also noted they were pet-friendly as we were bringing along our two large dogs.. After booking, we saw all the terrible reviews and were very concerned about what we would find. Luckily, not only were our concerns erased but we had a great experience there.
The owners, John and Mary, took over the Travelodge in October and, from the sounds of it, they have made quite a difference. For us, they were accomodating and helpful in every aspect of our visit from room needs to local town information to snow conditions, etc.. They offered a simple but adequate continental breakfast (cereal, coffee, juices, muffins, donuts, toast, jam) at no extra cost.
The room was roomy, clean, well-heated, and maid service dependable. It's not the Ritz but it's comfortable. The dogs had easy access (as in front door) and we felt no inconvenience for ourselves or others in having them there.
We returned from skiing and John always had some coffee or hot chocolate ready. He also has some great stories to share while you sip your brew.
There is free covered parking under the building with quick access from there to the rooms. There are some game tables in the basement as well as a jacuzzi but we didn't really spend any time there and my wife didn't like the look of the jacuzzi.
If you are high maintenance then I would look elsewhere. However, if you are looking for a decent, clean, family-friendly, pet-friendly, people-friendly environment at reasonable rates for Mammoth Lakes then this is the place.
Oh, yeah, go next door to the Angel Restaurant for the Chicken Pot Pie, french onion soup or other dishes. Would avoid the all you can eat Pork ribs on Tuesdays, though (too dry and salty).
Have a great stay in Mammoth Lakes!
