Mammoth is indeed a lovely place -- unless it's on fire! These guys say FREE CANCELLATION but if they have your money, all you'll get is a one-year $75 "gift code" and a stonewall from their rude manager. We were unable to arrange our stay around their rules, and lost $150.
Mammoth is such a great place to be in the summer sunny days in California.

Clean comfortable and cozy, The Mammoth Inn offers a pleasant stay for any visitor looking for a reliable and safe stay. Easy self-check in and self service for light breakfast options and more products, if needed. Located in a quiet and quaint neighborhood, The Mammoth Inn is in walking distance to great local shops and restaurants. A truly great stay for short or longer stays to experience all the magic of Mammoth.
I appreciated the procedure for contactless check-in and self-service aspect. Understandably, the dining area and refrigerator were off limits due to COVID so I couldn't put my food in the fridge for the night. However, the room I stayed in had malfunctioning blinds and one fell to the floor during the night, and the room was stuffy and had no ventilation, no ceiling fan, and no cooling/heating unit. Opening the windows was very difficult as they were almost inoperable and the screens had holes so mosquitoes could get in. Without the blinds there was light coming into the room from adjacent buildings and outside lights. Otherwise the room was clean, but not comfortable at all for sleeping. I stayed 1 night prior to back pack trip. My 3 friends stayed in a rented condo in separate rooms and I stayed at this hotel in order to avoid us all being in the same indoor space.…
My boyfriend and I decided last minute to go to Mammoth for a long weekend and found a great rate at the Mammoth Inn (around $100/night!) We didn't need anything fancy so we booked it. We had a studio that had no kitchen or stove but had a nice enough shower, decently comfortable bed, and it was clean and definitely did the trick for a short weekend and somewhere to just crash and sleep. The location was incredible, walking distance to town, and it has a super cute lobby. Parking is limited so a couple of times we were stuck parking far away as they were all taken but overall if you are just looking for something casual, small and minimal, this is a good place to stay.
