We stayed two nights here. It was the first time visiting Mammoth Lakes and going through the village, the hotel is at the very end of the street and looks very stately and impressive! (nice curb appeal) Checking in was simple and easy. I overheard the room rate given the man checking in earlier and I have to say I was very glad I used an on-line website as my rate was less! The underground parking is great and I was able to find parking close to the elevators. We had a one bedroom overlooking the front of the hotel, with a king size, plus a sofa bed. It was ample for the four of us. The kitchen was fully equipped with dishwasher, sink, (soap for dishwasher and handwashing was also available) microwave, electric oven, pots, pans, utensils, plates, bowls, cups and glasses, and even had cotton kitchen towels and paper towels. There is an eating area with full size table and four chairs. Also there was a coffee machine with reg and decaf packets of coffee, packets of cream, sugar, sugar substitute and a fully functioning refrigerator/freezer (with ice cube trays) large enough for week-long vacations. The Vons is only 5 minutes away in town. This was a definite plus! The bathroom had a hairdryer, Aveda shampoo, conditioner, soap and room underneath the sink to store toiletries for four women quite amply. Two televisions, one in the living room and one in the bedroom, with a balcony off the livingroom. The sofabed was as comfortable as sofabeds go, perhaps a little worn. Also, I think another person could have slept on the adjoining couch too as the room came with plenty of blankets. There was also a fireplace but we did not use it. Heaters were in the bedroom and kitchen, though no air conditioner. I was told a/c was not necessary and even in August it was comfortable w/o one. There are two ceiling fans which we used to get the air moving as it did get stuffy at night. My only complaint is with all the decorations on the walls! I mean, in August there were still two evergreen trees, stuffed animals (Christmas decor), hiking "gear", and even an old gondola seat at the foot of the kingsize bed and other unecessary decor throughout which took up alot of space and made moving around the rooms difficult! I hit my hip on the corner of the dressing table several times trying to get to my side of the bed. I am guessing these are timeshares that are rented out so perhaps these are the personal choices of the rental owners, but the space could have done without all that extra stuff. The staff were pleasant and cordial and ever helpful when it came to offering advise on what to see and do. There is also a free shuttle bus which brings you to town and I think it runs in the evening only. The driver was very kind and friendly. The resort has a small pool and a jacuzzi, too! I can imagine the resort is quite busy during the ski season as the location is excellent with the lifts on-site! Also, there are a few hiking trails behind the resort and of course the one which parallels the street. I saw a golf course nearby and the resort is surrounded by trees which lends a feeling of woodsy outdoors to the ambiance. All in all, a very comfortable place to stay, pleasant and helpful staff, convenient with the kitchen and the lifts, free shuttle bus to town and underground parking. The cons: no restaurant on-site except for a coffee "stand" and the room was cramped due to all the heavy decorating! We did try to use the ironing board but discovered it was broken. I called the front desk who said they would send someone up but that someone never showed up. Luckily it was no big deal. Also there is a resort fee which came to $20/day.
