“Close to perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Our group of three adults stayed in the Master Loft Suite for one night of our 3 week tour of the Southwest. This was without a doubt, one of the best places we stayed on our whole trip, and one of the most affordable to boot.

We were all very pleased with this choice, especially after the quality of lodgings at our previous stop in Yosemite, this was a revitalizing stay!

The inn has a great setup, very close parking to the front door, big lobby with comfy couches & tvs, complimentary hot drinks in the lobby, spa, sauna, steam room & gym. Upstairs was another cosy lounge with a pool room up the stairs from that! The young man who served us when checking-in, didn't say much and was quite casual and brief, however was quick and efficient. The lady we saw when checking-out was very friendly.

The room itself was fantastic, and much more than we had hoped for. It was almost bigger than our house! It would've been great to have had time to stay for a week or so, unfortunately we were stopping for one night only. The master bedroom was absolutely huge, and the bathroom almost as big! The bed & pillows were super comfy. The twin-room was also very well decked out for a smaller space, it had it's own ensuite as well. The kitchen was big and good for eating in. The lounge was lovely with a huge fireplace at one end, that I imagine, would be cosy & toasty all lit up in winter.

If I had to be very picky about the room...
The flagpole out the front of the property, is attached to the wall of the master bedroom, and when windy (as it was the night we stayed) creaks and groans a lot, and can be quite distracting when trying to sleep. Earplugs fixed that though. Also, for such a completely decked out suite, the kitchen could do with having some of the small things provided such as salt and pepper, or tea towels. Wifi was also very weak in our room.

The only thing we thought that really let the property down, was the included breakfast. We found this to be lacking in selection, which was surprising, given how well the small details are taken care of elsewhere. We grabbed a bagel each, and a glass of juice, and headed back to our room to eat our own cereal which was more appealing than cornflakes.

Other than that, the location is good and is handy to shops and amenities. There is a Vons supermarket down the road, where we stocked up on groceries for reasonable prices.

All in all, we were very happy with Mammoth Creek Inn, and would definitely return if we're over that way in the future. Thank you for a great stay!

Room Tip: Splurge and go for the Master Loft Suite if there are more than 2 of you. It was great for our group...

We found the lodge at the last minute, It was a delightful find, the staff was helpful, accommodations clean and restful, short walk to restaurants, and view of the mountains breathtaking. Breakfast was simple but it was adequate, bagels, juice etc.

Very comfortable hotel at a really great price. They had thought of everything a traveller needs and for the money, it was excellent. Clean, comnfortable bed and a good shower, and modern everything. Even has a small Spa, with Jacuzzi, Steam room and Sauna. Loved the range of Teas you could help yourself to in the Lounge. Short walk up the road to a choice of places to eat too. Would definitely stay here again if visiting Mammoth. Get the impression the hotel staff are really making an effort for this place to be a great place to stay.

Obviosly a winter SKI chalet, but we came in the summer, it was almost empty and we enjoyed all the attention, great service.
Breakfast was a little bit poor, but the value..... we pay half the price people pay during SKI season, which meant close to nothing for us :-)
It is classy, leather furniture, fireplaces, the wholeworks, would like to return in the winter to see how's it like....

Room Tip: Take a room not facing the backyard as it's not nice

We booked Mammoth Creek at the last minute, we couldn't decide whether to opt for cheap and cheerful or go for something a little more up market. Choice in the area can be tricky because places get booked up. We went for middle of the road and couldn't have been happier with our choice.

We were delighted, we had a lovely welcome and were given a room on the 1st floor. The temperature had dropped dramatically and we were greeted with a lovely roaring fire in the lounge. We were offered a variety of suggestions on where to eat. We opted for Thai'd up just across the road, but there is plenty of choice in Mammoth.

Our room was clean, with a huge bed. We didn't have a view but we weren't that bothered since we weren't planning on spending much time in our room.

There is a lovely spa downstairs in the basement, we didn't use it as we hunted down the hot springs, but if we had stayed longer we would have made use of these facilities, I can imagine it would be exactly what you would want after a day skiing, or hiking.

Breakfast is a simple affair although exactly what we needed a bagel and coffee, if you want something warm or heated up there is a microwave. On our second night we bought back a bottle of vino and the guy on reception was more than happy to get us some glasses and locate a bottle opener.

If we come back to Mammoth we will certainly come back to the Creek Inn.

We stayed here en-route to San Francisco and had a really pleasant and comfortable stay. Staff is very friendly and helpful and the rooms are nicely decorated and modern.
Ample breakfast selection, and gorgeous spa area too.

Stayed here for one night on the way from Yosemite to Vegas. Great location, short walk to the restaurants.
Rooms are comfortable and there is a lovely spa which we found so relaxing.
Would definitely Reccommend. Great price!
