Mammoth Lakes Holiday Inn
Enjoyed a brief stay at the Holiday Inn. Nice accomodations and good
service. My wife enjoyed the Spa area while my son and I took advantage of the great skiing.
Good Standard Holiday Inn
My myself and my new husband stayed at the Holiday Inn and Suites during part of our 3 week tour of California on our honeymoon. We stayed from the 3rd to the 5th August. When we arrived it was 13°c, after coming from the 40°c temps of Vegas, I was a little ------ off. I didn't know that it was going to be so cold. Yeah I knew we were high up in the mountains, but didn't think the drop in temp. would be so dramatic. So when we arrived at our room was too annoyed to take anything in. The room was fine though, absolutely nothing wrong with it, it was a very good standard for a holiday inn. They have an indoor gym and swimming pool and there is a bar (although it only seems to be occupied by the barman). I'd probably have been a little more appreciative if I wasn't so cold. We went for our dinner to a place across the road, I think it was called Slocums. The food was fantastic (so we went back our second night there too). There isn't much to do in Mammoth Lakes unless you are into your mountain biking or skiiing. However, we did venture to the mountain (fully equipped with warm clothes on). It was a little bit warmer there. We had planned to rent a couple of bikes but they were all out (it was Saturday), so instead we went up the gondolas to the top of the mountain, we stayed there for about a minute, we had to leave other the frostbite would have set in. When we arrived back down, we sat outside and watched people rock climbing (not real rock climbing, there was a practice bit). It was quite entertaining and I wish I'd tried it. We had a beautiful lunch at the cafe there, with it being a little warmer I even took my jumper off and would you believe its the most burnt I've ever been. Being so high up, the air is very thin, so beware, always wear suncream (even if you are freezing). I would recommend the Holiday Inn if you plan a visit to Mammoth Lakes, it has everything you need. Mammoth Lakes is definitely for the mountain biking and skiing enthusiasts.
Great hotel in the middle of town
Compared to the horrible hotel in Jamestown, CA we'd stayed at the night before, the Holiday Inn was a welcome relief. It's a bit tricky to find and is tucked away behind a Chevron station. It's almost directly opposite Shats Bakery (a fantastic place for breakfast and home cooked goodies). Rooms were clean, well maintained and appeared recently remodeled. Hotel has free high-speed internet and is 100% smoke free, which makes for a welcome change in this price category. Would highly recommend this hotel.
Would go there again
Room was clean and well appointed for the price
Ignore the location between the Chevron Station and the ministorage. Close to great bakery and outlets. For the money, this place was a winner.
Worst hotel during USA vacation
Undoubtedly the WORST hotel my family and I stayed in during our visit to the USA!
The staff were surly, unhelpful and when I asked to see the duty manager he wasn't there and we were told that "He [the manager] makes the rules" and that was that!
The barman sat and watched tv and would not serve us, even if we sat outside the bar/lounge in the hotels seating area. The bar was therfore unsurprisingly empty, even though it was a Saturday night.
The room had cobwebs above the lights, in the corner of the room and there was no pool towels available, even though there was no-one in the pool at the time. They later sent them to the room. what use is that?
It is difficult to find - its hidden behind a gas station and therfore better directions may have been useful.
All in all, a dreadful place! there are plenty of other hotels in Mammoth Lakes, whatever you do, don't stay here!
Good value hotel
This hotel is 100% smoke free and is a great hotel for it's class. We stayed there in June 2004 for one night and found it to be totally adequate for our needs.
We dined at Slocumbes accross the road and it was excellent, a first class restaurant.
We would like to return to mammoth lakes and spend more time exploring the area.
Good Value and Convenient
We stayed for a week in Feb 2003. Clean, modern, convenient to town and the ski shuttle, good value restaurant. Indoor swimming pool was OK although a bit cramped. Great value for money.
Clean, Friendly & Convenient
I stayed at the property for a week in March-April 2004. The hotel is 100% smoke free. The room was clean and in good shape. The front desk was helpful. The room's doors face an interior hallway, not the outside, so there was no draft in the room.Most of the rooms have high speed internet provided free (some rooms are still being upgraded) and local calls are free. The location is great- on the main road. There is a ski shop a few foot steps away. I would stay at the property again.
Ok for a stopover
We stayed here in Sep '03. We had booked a suite and were given the honeymoon suite, very nice we thought until we entered the room, if I had been taken there on my honeymoon I would have been very disappointed, badly in need of decoration. Probelms with the plumbing our toilet blocked twice and we were only there one night!
Great value-great location
Gerat place to stay! Ask for mountain view when you check in. Really convienantly located if you want to stay in town. Not dissapointed by anything.

Today we took my father's (Bart's) advice and drove down the Eastern side of California on 395 South. Glenn and I agree that this route was the most amazing interstate driving either of us have ever been on. Going South on 395 one passes one incredible Mountain after another as the Sierra Nevada's take on different forms.
Part way down we stopped at Mono Lake to see the Tufa towers. The towers ...
After the backpacking trip with Julie and Frank, it was heaven to be back in a hotel with running water, real toilets and a bed you do not have to break down and set up again. And we all know how we felt about the mosquitoes!
In Bishop, there are so many places to stay. We opted for a place that had a kitchen with the room and it was amazing. We stayed here for three nights.

This morning after I watched the sun rise over the hills and Katie and I had been for an early morning walk we met them back at the campsite and shared breakfast before we parted ways, though not for long as we will be meeting them again this afternoon as they have offered to share their campsite in Yosemite with us tonight as ...

We decided to spend one more day relaxing at the Scamp, neither of us was really stoked on hiking anyways as we had just spent the last two weeks straight hiking on average 10 miles per day. We did decide to drive over to the town of June Lake to check it out. It was a nice 15 min drive with the lakes on one side and the Sierras on the other. The town itself ...

All up I think we lost about an hour which was unfortunate as we were hoping to have a shorter drive this time. If we have left on schedule we would have come to the first closed gate and turned around a lot sooner. About another hour we in we came to the next alternative. But that road ...
