On the road at 8.30 for 500km trip to Caroline and Kevin's place (they also live in Russell) in the ski fields of Mammoth.

One false move and its over red rover. Its a shame we didn't get any pics, but we both wanted to get off the pass as quickly as we got on it.

As soon as the police man realised we were english he lightened up a bit, he told us to never get out of the car if we get pulled over, and he had a look in the van to see if we had any weapons or drugs.lol! what an experience. we just wanted to get out of there! we were actually going to camp there over night, but decided to just get to vegas we needed to get out of that hurrendous ...
... Generally we find that clothing in the States is the same price in dollars as it would be in pounds and frequently less. So it depends on the exchange rate exactly how much you save. We have a Post Office credit card which we use for these trips as that doesn't charge for purchases abroad and gives you the exchance rate on the day that you purchase. This trip the exchange varied between 1.57 and 1.60 depending when in the trip we ...

We're still waiting for a bill, then we can make a claim on our BMC travel insurance - hopefully, they'll cover it, because it'll probably come to about $2000!

Historical Traveler Reviews Shilo Inn Suites Mammoth Lakes
My husband and I checked in March 5, 2005 (Saturday), checked out March 7th (Monday). We stayed in room 208.
Amazing hotel, Amazing value!!!
I had the pleasure of staying in Shiloh Inn over the last weekend. I'm new to visiting Mammoth, and didn't really know what to expect. The hotel was amazing. The pool area is open 24 hours a day, there's a nice cont. breakfast, and covered parking! The shuttle to the ski mountain picks people up right next to the hotel. The staff was so nice. Our housekeeper didn't seem to speak english, but her smile said it all. Well done Shiloh Inn!!!!!
We had planned to arrive in Mammoth on New Years Eve,but due to severe storms and several road closures we eventually arrived 24 hours later(we were not charged for our booking for New Years Eve even though we gave less than 1 hours notice of cancellation). Mammoth itself,although very difficult to get to from San Francisco or Los Angeles Airports,is definitely worth the long drive and snow covered highways.It is a fantastic little town with a more than friendly atmosphere and a great resort whatever your level of experience.The Shilo made are stay all the better as it is very comfortable,well located and has a warm welcome evry time you walk through the door.Our room was very spacious and homely with all the facilities you need if you want to be a bit more self sufficient and can't be bothered to go out to eat every day/night.The hotel did have a pool and gym which were good but to be honest we just wanted to relax in front of the TV after a day on the slopes,which the room was perfect for.We are fussy about where we stay and i can say that neither of us had any grumbles at all with the Shilo,well priced(if you barter)and you are just left alone to get on with it.
Great staff, great rooms, clean and close to shops and restaurants!
I was surprised at the accomidations. The rooms are quite large and feel like at home. Plenty of parking and they offered to be picked up at the local airport considering I fly in on my airplane. The pool was nice and warm and the manager Dan, was very helpfull and really loves working for the company. I felt special. Thanks again Shilo Mammoth!
Our family has been staying at the Shilo Inn in Mammoth Lakes for at least four stays or more per year, during the past four years during snow season,and it is absolutely perfect for us! It is totally dog friendly and they have a friendly, courteous,and helpful staff. The hotel is clean, quiet, and well-kept. We love the indoor parking, shuttle service nearby to the slopes, and the short distance to many great local restaurants. Many times during our stay there is a blizzard, and we never even have to move our car from the indoor parking garage because it is so close to everything! Our kids love the pool, the 24 hour juice bar, and it is right next to McDonalds. My husband and I always use the workout room, and jacuzzi after a fun day at the slopes. We also utilize the storage for our ski/board equipment. And finally, we love the convience of the complimentary continential breakfast. We will be happy customers for many years.
Thank You Shiloh Inn
Our family, including our golden retriever, has enjoyed the beauty of Mammoth Lakes for over twenty years. We have chosen to consistently book our stay at the Shiloh Inn because of the spaciousness of the units, the comfort of their beds, and the affordability of their rooms. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. I highly recommend the Shiloh Inn for anyone that appreciates excellent accomodations and service at an affordable price.
Good for Dog Owners
This was a very nice place to stay and they did not mind our dog staying too. Would have liked a ground floor room (better for taking the dog out), but there are no ground floor rooms. Location was excellent and staff were very friendly and accommodating.
Best hotel ever!!!
I stay all over the country, and have come to expect a high level of service and value from any place I stay. I have to say that the Shilo Inn at Mammoth Lakes didn't just meet, but surpassed my expectations. The hotel and room were exceptionally clean, the staff was smiling and friendly, and I even had a really nice conversation with the manager over a cup of coffee in the lobby.
I'll for sure be back for ski season, and tell all my friends about Shilo Inns.
Pet loved it, good place!
This place is clean, quiet, well-kept. We went right after ski-season, so it wasn't crowded and that was nice too. The rooms are huge! Pet loved it---need I say more?
Great place to stay!
Great place to stay! Clean and quiet. Nice Staff. Dog friendly. A++++
