The hotel

A charming inn, Alpenhof Lodge is the nearest in town to the Main Lodge, and it’s also the closest to the new gondola to Canyon Lodge – adjacent to the village at Mammoth, with its shops, bars and restaurants. Onsite, the Clocktower Cellar bar serves over 160 whiskies, a great selection of beer from all over the world, and an eclectic pub menu. It also has a pool table, table football, electronic games and a jukebox. Petra's Bistro & Wine Bar offers over 30 different wines by the glass and a menu featuring seasonal California cuisine. The Mammoth Brewing Company is opposite the hotel, with its microbrewery and regular live music and dancing, and the surrounding areas are filled with things to do — making this an exceptional place to stay, any time of the year.

You cannot beat the location. A short walk to the village/gondola and near lots of restaurants. The room was rustic and dated but clean. Shower water pressure was not great. My only real gripe is the lack of hotel maid service. I travel a lot and this is the only place I have visited that is still leaning on "COVID safety" to save money on… Read more

My only real gripe is the lack of hotel maid service. I travel a lot and this is the only place I have visited that is still leaning on "COVID safety" to save money on daily maid service. If you charge regular hotel rates you should now provide regular hotel service. Read less

This charming European style lodge is spotless, spacious, well designed, and is located just steps from a lot of fun restaurants, the Mammoth gondola, and a small general store, yet is still nestled within the trees.

This charming European style lodge is spotless, spacious, well designed, and is located just steps from a lot of fun restaurants, the Mammoth gondola, and a small general store, yet is still nestled within the trees. Aside from the standard amenities, our room is very generous in size, has a firm but comfortable mattress, has convenient shelves and a small fridge, extra spots to hang jackets, and a pretty view of the snow and trees. I am normally a light sleeper but was not disturbed. The property is a tiny bit dated but that adds to its charm and the housekeeping staff keeps everything looking SPOTLESS. I also appreciated that it feels just like when we stayed in Switzerland. This is a great value for your money. 5 star for me! Will definitely stay again! Read less

Good things: Room size nice, hotel very clean (rooms and hallways all clean), amenities good. Front desk staff especially Martha very helpful and professional. parking easy just outside. Downside: No AC, so if it's 80 outside, you need to leave windows open, but it doesn't cool the room enough. They do leave you a fan in the room. There is a… Read more
Good things: Room size nice, hotel very clean (rooms and hallways all clean), amenities good. Front desk staff especially Martha very helpful and professional. parking easy just outside. Downside: No AC, so if it's 80 outside, you need to leave windows open, but it doesn't cool the room enough. They do leave you a fan in the room. There is a bar/restaurant connected to the hotel. While this is convenient for some, the result was super loud parties late into the night. Drunk people talking laughing, it was terrible. And then they moved the parties to the parking lot or the rooms. And we did not want to close the window as it was way too hot. As a result, we got absolutely no sleep. For that reason, we will not be going back to alpenhof lodge. Read less

We stayed at this hotel in mid-June for a small family gathering. We loved that the place was right across the street from the "Village" and our daughter's condo was just a walk away as well. We had a second story king suite with a small living room and it wasn't a fancy place but it was nice, clean and quiet and the bed was comfortable. Our only… Read more
We stayed at this hotel in mid-June for a small family gathering. We loved that the place was right across the street from the "Village" and our daughter's condo was just a walk away as well. We had a second story king suite with a small living room and it wasn't a fancy place but it was nice, clean and quiet and the bed was comfortable. Our only complaint was the stall shower. It was very small and the shower head was not adjustable so when the water came out it almost hit me in the face and I had nowhere to avoid it! Also, be aware that there is no air conditioning, but they did supply a nice big fan. The steps leading up to the 2nd floor are very steep and there is no elevator so if you can't walk up steps you will need a room on the first floor. But other than that, it was a nice, short notice place to stay. And the woman who greeted us in the lobby was VERY friendly and helpful so all in all we were happy to have a nice place for the weekend that met all our needs. Read less
