Good 6.0
The employees are not very friendly. We booked with the free breakfast but when we checked in they gave us the notice said that we had to pay. We complained then they said because we booked with Hotel.com they have nothing to do with that. Can Hotel.com give us an answer?

Mammoth Ease and Efficient at Empeiria! :)
Staff are very accomodating and hotel remodel is modern and fresh. Great location on Main Street! Only room for improvement would be is they were understaffed in the kitchen/restaurant so uber busy wait for breakfast! Not their fault since it's difficult to find employees during Covid/Stimulus checks make it hard to find people to work. The gals in the restaurant were very calm, understanding and efficient to take to go orders and the one male cook is a super human!! Patience is a virtue so I hope patrons who stay here understand this scenario. The food was delicious and staff was very accomodating. it is best to show up and place your order directly vs. calling the restaurant. They will call you when ready which is convenient as early as 6:30am. Overall, my 2 sons enjoyed our stay, despite pool not being open due to Covid. :(

Great place to stay in mammoth.

Poor 2.0
Unsafe for children
They charged me for our service animal. They even went to the extent of asking what conditions we had for the service animal. I believe they broke the law... we had a childrens room. Take a look at the window. There is no screen and my son was wailing his upper body out the window as we were settling in. Towels and anything else needed you have to go downstairs to the front desk to retrieve. We have been coming to mammoth since 2015. Each year we come out here at least minimum of 6 time a year and NEVER have i ever experienced something like this. So very disappointing.

Pleasantly surprised!
Recently renovated Best Western hotel. One of the nicer places in Mammoth for the money. We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the interior of the rooms were. They even had a hot breakfast! Only downside, was the difficulty in extending check out from 11 AM to 12 noon. It was a struggle.
