Closed jacuzzi & leaking roof with electrical components
My husband and I checked in March 5, 2005 (Saturday), checked out March 7th (Monday). We stayed in room 208.
Let me list the positives:
1. Hotel provides luggage carts
2. Hotel provides a great daily breakfast (not just coffee and donuts)
3. Rooms are clean and large
4. Thermostat works
5. Room had a couch with pull-out bed
6. Sauna and steam room worked
7. Staff was very friendly
Let me list the negatives:
1. The indoor pool's water had a brownish-green tint, a bit scary
2. The indoor Jacuzzi, although large, was taped off and was mirky brown (smelled bad)
3. Steam room smelled like a dirty armpit (When was it last cleaned?)
4. There was a huge plumbing leak in the roof of the second floor right next to the elevator, with electrical lights hanging out of it (water & electricity mixing = trouble)
We left our room Sunday for the slopes at 7:30 am. When we came back at 4:30pm, the roof had not been fixed (so much for using the elevator safely). The pool had not been cleaned and the jacuzzi had not been opened or fixed. If you enjoy a soak in the jaccuzzi after boarding all day, be sure to call and ask if it is open, I did not. The whole reason I booked the hotel was for the indoor jacuzzi.
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!
We love it & always stay here!
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++++

... but can imagine how beautiful the town would be coverend in snow. In a month or two it'll be busy with skis, snowboards and snowploughs, but for the moment it's a quiet little place. We wondered around the mountain village, based at the bottom of the gondolas and enjoyed a sundowner by the fire pit.

... to drive back. Close to the exit of the national park, I was following a car in front of me and I knew we were speeding, and before long, the sheriff was behind me with his lights and siren on, and I thought, great, this is how we wanted to end the day ... NOT :) I put my indicator on, to acknowledge the sheriff was behind me, but there was no where I could stop as there was no room on the side of the ...
... in pretty woman. it was great!
We found a chevy van after about 6 days! They were 2 mexicans, and they came and met us at the hotel. The van was really old, 1990, but in really good condition. We managed to get it for $1700. Not bad really. We paid them the next day and they brought it to the hotel for us.They were really nice guys actually, he had owned the van for 18 years. We had enquired about renting a campervan before we bought one and it would have cost us $7000!!! and ...
... the last 3 miles were unpaved and might be rough going (but that's what 4x4s are for!) so we didn't want to be in a hurry. We hadn't appreciated until we drove it that US-395 twists and turns up the mountain; the views were stunning with Aspen trees a brilliant yellow indicating the route of the creek/river in the valley bottom to the left and, on the other side, Mono Lake a pale blue haze with the strange tufa towers ...
The trip from Lone Pine to Mammoth Lakes was mercifully short (only two hours). Yet again, we didn't know what to expect - I've toured the West of California but not the East so we were blind with only the Lonely Planet to rely on.
