Super friendly staff and large rooms plan ahead if you aren't renting a car!

This was a 24 hour trip and the hotel was satisfying. I was placed in a double queen room, however it was larger than most. The hotel is going thru a renovation, which is usually quite annoying, however for some reason this time it didn't bother me.
The folks working on the renovation were very kind and the hotel has gone to the trouble to 'hide' most of the construction work that is happening so guest aren't too affected by the noise. The free breakfast in the morning was open from 6am-10am and they were making custom eggs and pancakes for the guests, plenty of good fruit to eat and pastries, drinks yogurt etc. Coffee was good. I was able to request a late checkout. I do want to warn folks who have NOT rented a car while they are visiting Mammoth, like I did not, that you will be STUCK paying $60.00 + dollars for a return trip back to the airport unless you book your return trip in advance and tell them you want a shared shuttle service. If there isn't anyone else sharing your cab, you will be stuck paying $60.00!! The hotel does NOT offer shuttle to and from the airport. Same thing when you land. It might be worth it for you to rent a car and probably much cheaper. The hotel is about 10 minutes away from the airport so I'm not sure WHY the hotel does not pony up a shuttle service to offer guests. This was a cab service recommended by the hotel. Lastly, there are a bunch of places to eat and shop within walking distance which is nice. less

Thank you for taking the time to post your review! I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and am sorry to hear about the expense of the cab ride to the airport. It definitely should not be that expensive. We actually do have a shuttle but it is not currently in operation and hope that we can get that amenity running sometime soon. If you do fly in again, check back with us to see where we are at with this process.
