Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback regarding your stay at Mammoth Mountain. We sincerely appreciate your feedback and we are very happy you enjoyed your experience. Although Covid has limited our remodel momentum, before 2020 pandemic we replace all of our furniture and drapes in our 215 guest rooms, replace all of the carpet in the units, worked on our wall coverings, we have an annual maintenance schedule to replace our older windows that are starting to fail. This year we are replacing all of the lobby carpet in the Main building, common areas and restaurants. That monumental job was originally planned in 2020. Although the building was constructed in the late 1950’s we will continue to perform “comfort” improvements. We always take your comments into consideration to make changes to improve our guest experience. We hope you will visit us again in the future. The best ski in and out lodging at the mountain. Thank you!

What's better than walking across the street and taking the gondola to the peak every morning? Can't beat the location. Staff is great and the rooms are nice. With Main Lodge across the parking lot you pretty much have anything you need for a great convenient day on the mountain.

Dear Scott S, Thank you for your wonderful review. Located directly across the street from Main Lodge, the Mammoth Mountain Inn is a true ski in ski out lodge here in Mammoth Lakes. Although we are located approximately four miles from the city center, we offer numerous on-site dining options, complimentary shuttle service to The Village, a fitness center, and hot tubs - just to name a few of our plethora of amenities. Thank you again for your review, and we hope to see you again in the near future. Derek Barker

Location is great, right near the slopes. Rooms are old and in bad shape, with a heater that barely heats, bad wifi and a way too expensive breakfast. Spa area is nice, with 4 jacuzzis and a pool. TA wants more characters so here you go.

Dear travelfiend_30, Thank you for feedback on the recent say at the Mammoth Mountain Inn. Our location right across from Main Lodge certainly makes us the place to be for all the winter activities! I want to apologize about the issues you experienced in the room, and will be sure to have my maintenance team to address the issues you mentioned in the room.

I remember when MMI felt like such a treat, and it has been so sad to watch it degrade. The first thing that must be addressed is the filthy dirty carpet in greige, just terrible— I’m not exaggerating. The greige hall walls are dingy and ugly, too. The stucco walls and ceiling are warped and peeling. It is clear that management is putting effort into working with what they’ve got, and staff are great, but this place needs major work. It is almost laughable that we’ll all still pay to dollar to stay here. Like a badge of honor. Please, someone rescue this place! Such a shame.

First of all, let me be clear that this review is not targeted at any of the hotel staff or middle management, who were really lovely, gracious, and incredibly hard working. Honesty, in all my travels, the staff here have been some of the best. But the hotel property is a real disappointment. Quite frankly, the property and top level management/ownership doesn't deserve the lovely staff who were constantly having to apologize for all the shortcomings. We checked in to the Inn on Sunday December 12, the day before a blizzard was expected to pass through the area. We stayed for the first night in a "King Balcony Loft" room facing the mountain, and then a 2 bedroom apartment in the West Wing, a short walk across a parking lot from the main building. Checking in was fine, but it became immediately apparent that the hotel was short staffed, as the person helping us was also training a new employee and also acting as bellman, trying to help people with skis and bags in the lockup. I had read about how the hotel had underground parking, which I found to be great because I knew that there was a blizzard coming through. But the underground parking garage was tiny - maybe 50 spots at most. Of course they were all full as everyone else wanted their car to be covered when the snow started. So we had to park our car in the outside lot, knowing we would need to dig out throughout the week to stay ahead of the snow. This is the first thing I found to be quite misleading about how the hotel advertises itself. Don't think for a second that you're going to get an underground parking space here - be prepared to dig out if weather comes through, and bring your own snow shovel, because the Inn doesn't have enough for everyone and we had to wait 20 minutes for a shovel to become available because everyone wants to dig out at the same time. Then, it took me about 2 hours to dig out my car. Both hotel rooms were spartan at best, and desperately in need of a ground up makeover. The rooms are just old - that's all there is to it. Fortunately the beds were very comfortable and pillows were great with good quality sheets and mattresses. The kitchen in the 2 bedroom apartment was tiny - not a full sized kitchen but more a convenience kitchen. I'd say you're limited to very simple cooking in there like breakfasts and maybe pasta but that's it. The next day, Monday, was when it started snowing, and it really got heavy Monday evening, then Tuesday was full on blizzard with high winds that closed the mountain to skiing all day. So we were holed up in our room. About halfway through the day we had no hot water. Hot water wasn't restored until 7:00AM the next day. The excuse given was that "everyone was taking showers at the same time so the hot water tank had been depleted." This I find to be unacceptable. Hot water needs to be available in hotel rooms at all times, period. On a mountain where people ski until 3-4PM, you can count on the fact that everyone is gonna want to shower between 4-5 pm. The hotel's facility should be prepared for that. Upon checkout, I was offered only a refund of my resort fee for the inconvenience, which I found to be less than reasonable. The Inn is understaffed. One bartender pouring drinks at the height of dinner service. Only two waiters for the entire restaurant in the Inn, called the "Mountainside Grill." One night the wait was 90 minutes for take-out orders. One night the restaurant was closed due to "issues." One morning the restaurant was closed, not serving breakfast. We were sent over the the Main Lodge (at the bottom of the lifts) where we were assured they had a great hot breakfast. In actuality, only donuts were available. Several days in a row the small coffeeshop/store in the hotel was out of certain staples like milk and cereal. The excuse we were given for most of these shortcomings was the blizzard that passed through. I don't find that to be a good excuse. The mountain gets blizzards all the time. Blizzards are predicted in weather forecasts. The mountain can prepare for the bad weather and order extra supplies in preparation, and house staff onsite so there are no staffing shortages because "people couldn't get up here from their houses." If you're going to have a hotel in an extreme weather area, you need to be prepared for disruptions so you can continue to guarantee service and amenities for your guests. Several major fails here throughout our stay. This is why I target upper management and ownership, who are responsible for making these kinds of decisions, not the middle management and staff on site, who were working so very hard, harder than they should be, to make up for these shortcomings. What I find particularly baffling is that Starwood Capital Group bought the mountain from the McCoys in 2005 - the buyer "promised a more upscale experience, upgrading the raw, unpolished style developed by founder and co-owner Dave McCoy." 17 years later, absolutely nothing has been done to the Inn, which should be the premiere property on the entire mountain because of its location right at Main Lodge, at the base of the lifts. I just find this shocking. The Mammoth Mountain Inn could be a Cliff Lodge at Snowbird, a Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch, a Montage or Stein Erikson at Park City. This whole notion of "the people who ski at Mammoth just come to ski" is just untrue. People come to stay at Mammoth for a ski vacation, where skiing is barely 6-7 hours out of a 24 hour day. The rest of the time, especially if the weather is bad, you're holed up in your hotel. A hotel that is in a premiere position on the mountain like the Mammoth Mountain Inn should be world class, just like the skiing is. I won't return here, at least not until the place has been completely rebuilt. Maybe I'll try one of the ski-in/out locations further down the mountain but honestly, for a few extra hundred dollars I think I'll just buy a cheap plane ticket to Salt Lake City and ski in Utah.

Dear MatinicusRock, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay at the Mammoth Mountain Inn and I want to apologize for falling short of meeting your expectations while you were with us. Your experience certainly isn't customary for a trip to Mammoth or a stay at the Mammoth Mountain Inn (except all the snow!) I will be sure to pass your comments along to the upper management about how the blizzard was handled to ensure an experience like this does not happen again. We do have plans in place for a full re-build of the Mammoth Mountain Inn and Main Lodge for the spring of 2023, and those plans can be found in the local paper "the sheet". Once again, I want to apologize for the issues you experienced while you were with us, and we hope to see you back the next time your travels bring you to Mammoth to see that this experience is not a normal one.
