      Historical Traveler Reviews Austria Hof Lodge Mammoth Lakes

      Disappointed, not what you expect

      from

      Good value in the summer and fine for one night, but things aren't all DVD players and down quilts. The hotel looks like it gets worn out in the winter which is fine in the winter when it is dark. In the summer the drab musty interior shows up too much and the rooms are only average. On top of that the owners (or staff) staying in the hotel are very noisy in the evening. The restaurant is fine but very expensive, many better places to eat in the town. Mammoth Lakes is a wonderful place to visit in the summer but don't stay here unless you need something cheap and don't fancy a motel. The only let down in our two week holiday.

      Give this a Miss

      from

      Stayed 14 nights in Califormia in Oct 05 in 6 hotels, this was by far the most depressing experience we had.

      I can see the attraction of the hotel's location - across road from ski tows, but in the summer it hasn't got a lot going for it. You are treated as an inconvenience when booking in by the staff (playing on computer).

      Getting to reception is up 14- 16 steps, not easy with heavy cases. Room was clean, small but view was of rear service area (garbage & rubble). Jacuzzi was working, contrary to the receptionist's belief, but it looked filthy so that was off the agenda. Hotel is about 1 to 1.5 miles from main Mammoth Lakes restaurants (there is a good choice even in off season). Breakfact was a buffet in the reception area. Limited choice or we were unlucky as others had grabbed the goodies and retreated to their rooms as there are only 3- 4 seats.

      Off season, if you have to stay in Mammoth Lakes, stay at some other hotel.

      Avoid this one in the summer

      from

      After requesting a room near the jacuzzi when making my reservation, I showed up not only to find myself in the room furthest from it, but that it was out of service and apparently had been for some time, given all the stuff floating around in it. You'd figure that they'd tell you that it was out of service if you ask about it, but this does not appear to be their m.o. When we asked for some regular tea for breakfast (only herbal tea was on the table), the clerk swore and muttered something before producing some tea-bags. Mabye they have a better staff that isn't so rude in the winter but in the summer you'd get more for your money at any motel six or sleazy eight. Two thumbs down for the Austria Hof

      Austria Hof was Satisfactory

      from

      Received a good rate for our August 21st stay, but the overall stay was average. The non-air conditioned room (#100) required windows to be open. It was generally quiet, but noise traveled too well from noisy vehicles and loud-talking people. We were entertained in the middle of the night by very close-by howling coyotes, and again wakened by a bear rummaging through a nearby dumpster. The spacious room decor was adequate, but nothing fancy. The bed was comfortable. The desk person provided minimal service while sitting in his chair. The continental breakfast was adequate with satisfactory basics (hard boiled eggs, cereal, bagels, fresh fruit, no coffee). There were no grounds to talk about. Location was near center of town.

      OK for price but not a good summer place

      from

      The desk service was less than average. The guy handed me the key and told me my room number and that was it. No directions, amenities, mention of breakfast. Turns out breakfast was in the lobby, and since it was included with the room, I can't really complain, but I had better at a Days Inn the morning before. They don't have Happy Hour or serve their full menu during the summer. There is no air conditioning and no temperature control whatsoever in the room. The room itself had many dings and the comforter cover was stained. Do NOT be deceived by the hot tub. It holds four people max in very tight quarters. It isn't comfortable with more than two people--with 2 it's cozy. I'm sure it's awesome in the winter -- you can't get any closer to the ski lift -- but I highly recommend staying elsewhere during the summer.

      Great Find!

      from

      A great deal in Mammoth. Awesome room with a view of slopes. We mountain biked from the door! Friendly staff, restaraunt and bar onsite, and nice continental breakfast were a bonus. Free WiFi access was appreciated.

      Good and walking distance to lifts!

      from

      I thought the Austria Hof was great! The fact that its so close to the base of the mountain makes it even better. We stayed for 7 nights and were happy nearly the entire time. The only drawaback - thin walls so dont expect to not feel like your neighbors are in your room sometimes! However, there was a self-serve breakfast every morning and the front desk staff was very nice. Our room was cleaned and taken care of every day. All in - a great stay!!

      The best Lodge in Mammoth

      from

      This is the place. Down beds, DVD players, jacuzzi tub and fireplace in our room and all slopeside. A great bar and restarant downstairs. We'll never stay anywhere else in Mammoth!

      Minimal

      from

      RM 106 NoGo. Before booking be sure you know what amenities are available/working and what's under construction. If all you need is a place to crash, fine. Otherwise spend a few dollars more elsewhere.

      Good Location. Continental Breakfast service, variable. Very Clean.

      Best location in Mammoth

      from

      What a find. A charming ski lodge right at the foot of the slopes to Mammoth Mtn. Super rooms as well a great little German restarant and bar downstairs. We want stay anywhere else again. Compares to the Mountain properties at a fraction of the cost.

      That is how the Americans pronounce the National Park of Yosemite. It's a stunningly beautiful area, with the focal point being the 7 mile long valley. We were there for two nights in a campsite where the tents are provided and already established. On the day after we arrived, we set off on a hike up the mountain/cliff. It was very hot and sunny and we were wearing shorts and ...

After a while we headed back to the trailhead and drove into Yosemite valley one last time. After buying the last of our souvenirs, we headed back to the campsite. We searched for showers for about an hour, and after no luck we went back to the campground. We ate dinner, lit a fire, and eventually fell ...

      I then went into a very dodgy liquor store to get Chris a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale for our next stop: a natural hot spring in the middle of nowhere before Mammoth Lakes. They even gave me a tiny brown bag to put it in. The afternoon was perfect… especially the hidden hot springs. Directions? Turn right at the little green church, go past three cattle grates, ...
