Upon check in we were advised we had been upgraded - what a bonus! Our room was awesome! It was very clean with a kitchenette, fireplace, king bed and a huge bathroom with double vanity.

The staff were friendly, however we did have issues with the internet which the staff were dismissive of, to our disappointment. We ended up going to McDonalds down the road to get wifi. Apart from this annoyance, we would recommend this hotel.

We stayed here instead of staying in Yosemite itself, as it is much better accommodation at much better value! A short drive (an hour-ish) from the Tioga Pass or Sonora Pass roads and Mammoth is a beautiful mountain retreat. It is big enough it has everything you need and still has a small town feel. The Sierra Nevada Lodge is easy to find and has free parking. The room was spacious and comfortable, clean and well maintained. Modern fresh bathroom with an amazing shower. All the team were friendly and helpful and the happy hour was also great. The main lobby and lounge is really welcoming with open fires. This place is a winner for a summer stay or ski resort in winter.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard will be quieter than those facing the car parks.

Went to Mammoth for a long weekend getaway and this was the perfect place. They picked us up at the Mammoth airport for free. The lobby is huge with a pool table, hot drinks, sunken seating area around a fireplace. From the moment you walk in, you feel like you are in a different world. Rooms were clean, entrances were kept clear of snow and there's plenty of parking! There are 3 restaurants on premise, so you can walk in the beautiful snow instead of drive. My favorite part was the outdoor hot tub. My only negative comment is that the lobby has a bar but didn't provide service to just anybody. They served only 2 groups of large parties while I was there and I was told that it's not an open bar for just everyone. This is a must for all hotel quest!

Very helpful checkin staff. Nice rooms, reception area/sofas/fire looked lovely.

Only negative comment, shelf in shower is far too high for anyone under 5' tall.

Would like to come back and spend more time in mammoth lakes.

The entrance to the resort is mildly unusual and not well marked. However, the rest of the resort is great. In the lobby is "Dukes" bar, which John Wayne frequented. The hallways have been redone with rough sawn pine wainscoat, impressive. We were in a deluxe king room, pet friendly, beautiful. Also 42" tv, a gas fired fireplace, and very comfortable pillowtop bed. Appears to be renovated from two previous rooms, with alot of rough sawn and smooth pine, a kitchenette with 2 burner cooktop, granite counter and nice undercounter fridge. the bathroom had a large tub as well as a large glass enclosed shower, and a HEATED toilet seat. We will certainly stay there again!

Room Tip: Get the King deluxe room

We had a great stay. Service, cleanliness and overall experience was all excellent. I have stayed in most of the nicest hotels in Mammoth, and to me, this is the best choice. This resort is centrally located whereas some of the others are not as close to dining and shopping. There was a nice grassy area outside my room with a playground that my daughter played at for hours. My favorite parts about the actual room was the large flat screen TV, kitchenette, toilet seat warmer ;) fireplace and the decor. The room was super nice and I would definitely recommend this lodge over others in town.

Some rooms are just "decent and clean." Sierra Nevada was that bit more luxurious we really enjoyed our room. Lovely room and bathroom. The communal areas are beautifully done as well in big ski chalet style. Big open fire, antique furniture pieces, open (free) hot drink bar, hot tub etc. Very friendly and helpful staff as well. Only minor point we found disappointing was the sauna was not on.

There is free WiFi in the rooms and lounge although the room WiFi was not working while we were there.

Good food in the attached restaurant Rafters although pricier than elsewhere in town.

We loved this sleepy little town. During the 2 days we stayed we were hiking in the Mammoth Lakes area. We had a great breakfast at "Good Life Cafe" and "The Breakfast Club." We got great take out packed lunches to eat on hike. My husband and I also visited the local cinema which looks just like an old fashioned American cinema you see in movies.
