Alpenhof Lodge

Mammoth, USA

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.

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

To give the place the benefit of the doubt, let me start by mentioning that we went during high COVID restrictions. No Housekeeping No Pool/ Sauna NO BREAKFAST.

To give the place the benefit of the doubt, let me start by mentioning that we went during high COVID restrictions. No Housekeeping No Pool/ Sauna NO BREAKFAST. Aside from location, those were the attractive features that gravitated our family of four to hotel instead of Airbnb, so I was surely disappointed upon my arrival. I found the staff was so consumed by letting us know of restrictions, they forgot to be cordial and welcoming, everything was "no" specially coming from Front Desk Martha, who was unaccommodating to the max. Her answer to us needing cleaning supplies to keep the room tidy, with two kids and cereal breakfasts, was for me to make sure my kids don't spill things on the carpet. I had to personally ask one of the housekeepers to lend me the vacuum cleaner, and other supplies to keep our place decently clean. Not offering breakfast when that is a trademark of their place and seen in multiple reviews, was very disappointing. Other places and motels we stayed in on our trip up offered boxed breakfasts with fruit, cheese and juice and more importantly a SMILE and GOOD ATTITUDE Alpenhof preferred to open Bar and Happy hour, that seemed odd considering they had to cancel breakfast a d ANY SEATING OUTSIDE IN PATIO even for a call, when EVERY OTHER business had open patio seating. Description of room The beds o.k., Linens and pillows o.k. Bathroom tiny, old Carpet old and crusty that days of stay with no cleaning, the crustiness augmented, hence the urgency of the vacuum. All in all, I would rate the hotel very average, they just bank on their location. Read less

Located near the gondola, there are a few restaurants nearby. The bed is comfortable, the room is spacious. We were just glad they were open in these COVID times. Plenty of outdoor seating for the bar and the restaurant (Petra's), although Petra's didn't take reservations, and had an hour & a half wait every time we tried. The bar outdoor… Read more

Conveniently located across the street from Toomey's, especially since our friends were staying at 8050. Cute exterior easy to find. The people at the front desk were great, and it felt clean, considering the pandemic. Free parking throughout our 3 night stay.
