Scout tips

  • Mammoth’s Day care facilities for newborns up to two years old are right in the building
  • Some of the rooms feel dated with 1950’s furnishing
  • The main building has better and updated rooms
  • Hotel courtesy shuttle on demand that will take you down the village
  • Free airport shuttle


At the far right hand side of Mammoth Mountain lies the Main Lodge ski area base and the Mammoth Mountain Inn. Built in the late 1950’s it has a very friendly and laid-back atmosphere. Although it’s gone through various remodels and renovations, in some ways it feels like not much has changed since it opened (we wonder if the heaters have ever changed?). But if you can get past through this, you will definitely have a fun vacation in this hotel primarily because of its location and very accommodating staff.

The hotel has 217 rooms ranging from a standard hotel room to the more luxurious two-bedroom condo with loft. Guests are housed in different buildings depending on which type of room you choose.  Scout prefers the rooms located in the main building, which houses the standard rooms and deluxe rooms with lofts although these rooms do not have any kitchen facilities. These rooms are more updated and centrally located to the slopes and all of the facilities of the hotel.

The Mountainside Grill is the hotel’s main restaurant which serves traditional American favorites and its specialty, seared cuts of steak. Breakfast is from 7 am to 10 am, and dinner starts at 5 pm. The Dry Creek Bar opens at 4 pm has a great view of the mountains. Mammoth Mountain Inn is located right opposite the famous Yodel bar which is a popular après spot.

The hotel has numerous facilities such as an outdoor Jacuzzi and a large heated swimming pool which is open all-year round, three indoor Jacuzzis, a well-equipped fitness center, a business center, coin-operated laundry facilities, ski rentals, a game room equipped with wi-fi internet access, PlayStation and an Xbox, and a state-licensed child care facility which is certified to take care of newborns up to 24 months. 

Mammoth Mountain Inn is a fantastic lodging option for a ski vacation in Mammoth, particularly for those who prefer to be closest to the slopes each morning over proximity to the main village base.

Who should stay here

Mammoth Mountain Inn is excellent for families or couples who don’t mind being a little separated from the village, and for people who want to have the best access to the ski lift and slopes.
