We chose this hotel ( Grand Sierra Lodge) thinking about great guest service and a nice weekend ahead. Instead we encountered a terrible group of staff that Sunday morning November 10th. Devin, Kayla and Gail was the worst we have ever encountered in our experiences with hotel personnel. Devin went outside the front of the hotel and just yelled at me telling me not to smoke where I was standing. I was near the street when he like just shouted at me. He could have approached me and tell me without even shouting. This prejudice person should not be working in guest related jobs. He does not deserve to be working with the Village Lodge!!! He is a discriminating/prejudice person when treating guest at this hotel. The staff that Sunday morning Devin, Kayla and Gail was the worst we have ever encountered in our years of traveling. I could have started arguing with this person but have to keep my cool and not level myself with his attitude problem. Who the heck he thinks he is anyway? Kayla asked me for my ID for a luggage cart??? Why didn’t they ask for my ID when we checked in for a luggage cart? It’s confusing for me on why a guest would need to leave an ID for a luggage cart??? This 3 people wasted our weekend!!! I will let corporate people or Management do their retraining on this 3 staff before they encounter another bad review from other guest in the future. Will not recommend Grand Sierra Lodge for this reason. Read less

Nice and clean, everything is walking distance. The rooms are nice and the parking is accessible from anywhere. We went off season and it was nice and quiet . We took our six month old and i think the elevation was a bit much for her , even we were a little short of breath. But it’s worth it!

We've always wanted to do a getaway to the Eastern Sierras during the fall and decided to stay at The Village Lodge in Mammoth. I will say that although they tried to fix things, we will never stay there again! I reserved a 1 bdrm condo and upon checkin, we were "upgraded" to a 2 bdrm with more room and higher ceilings. We thought how nice even though there were only 2 of us. We get to the room and instantly were disappointed. Broken blinds, broken lamps, broken shower door etc. I called down to the front desk using the last button on the phone as all others were broken and the master bdrm phone was dead. The guy at the front desk was so rude. I asked him... do you treat all of your guests this way? He said I was giving him open ended sentences, telling him what was wrong but not telling him what to do about it! OMG! Later that night due to the dry air, cheap linens and no softener, we couldn't sleep in either beds due to static electricity. We were shocked constantly and couldn't move or put the sheets on our bodies. We were finally given new sheets 1 of which was cotton so we were able to put things together to sleep. We had to do the bed ourselves, no housekeeping there. (was told housekeeping was there till 11pm... shock to mgmt... they left before 8pm)!The maintenance guy told us not to use the shower because it was dangerous. Finally called Travis, Mgr next morning, got moved to a new condo and was supposed to get an adjustment to the first nights rate. Beware...they have an honor bar and I had to call down so we wouldn't be charged as items were missing already in the new condo. Check out was a pain as well as Travis did not note anything on our file regarding the adjustment. Talked to Chase who took care of the adjustment. Don't waste your money here. Privately owned condos poorly managed so you will never know what you are getting! Read less

We recently stayed at The Village Lodge as repeat visitors, we have stayed here previously as a convenient stop-off in a lovely town on the way to explore Yosemite. However, after this visit additional charges were billed to our credit card which we have not received any explanation for. Upon check-out we were assured we were 'all set' by the front desk staff, and never received any final bill or invoice (our room itself was prepaid). We checked our credit card bill a couple of days later and there were 2 separate charges from The Village Lodge, one for the resort fee which was expected, but a further separate charge which was unexpected. I reached out to the hotel via the Expedia app messaging service (as we booked through Expedia and there is no email address on the hotel's website) and was told a very vague 'it's probably for water or snacks', still no final bill or invoice offered. We categorically didn't consume any of the snacks or water provided - only adults stayed in the room, we brought a cooler with drinks and snacks. The person I was communicating with via Expedia was unhelpful and stated I had to call the front desk to dispute this (As said I don't even have any paperwork given to me to dispute), but as an overseas visitor I am expected to incur long distance charges to call them to discuss an error on their part. So, I am left with a review as the only way to register my disappointment with the hotel, I'll stay elsewhere next time. Read less

5 STARS from the moment we were greeted till we placed the checkout phone call from the convenience of our room. Front staff very friendly, smiles and pleasantries. We arrived early expecting our studio condo, however, we were upgraged at no extra charge to the 1 bedroom condo w/den. WOW! UHHH MAZZZINNGG !! Considering we weren’t expecting this room, it was a pleasant upgraded surprise. It was just 2 of us, and we had a king sz , very comfortable, and very warm bed. Flat screen TV in bedroom as well as in the main den area. Robes and pool towels also in room. Den area consisted of a very comfy couch and single chair with electric fireplace and it generated a tremendous amount of warmth. We also had a small balcony overlooking the village where we enjoyed some early evening drinks and enjoyed some people watching ! Carpet throughout except for kitchen and bathroom. There was a full kitchen. Full size fridge, dishwasher, micro, oven, and electric stove top. Plates, cups, silverware and utensils all furnished. A few extras also offered on the counter of the kitchen , BUT for EXTRA prices: water, candy , chips, suntan lotion to name a few. Prices not awful but there is a general store within a very short walk that could provide the same water chips and candy for a much reduced price. I wish we had 2-3days to enjoy the luxury feeling this condo offered and truly take advantage of everything it offered. Oh and bathroom was average. Tile floors, adequate ventilation for the shower, although the shower itself was lacking. However, large enough to take a bath if you choose. Very warm water, but a little low on water pressure. The hotel has a grand staircase (think Titanic where Jack and Rose meet up with each other, In their gala attire at the end , after she passes ) leading from check-in, down to the main restaurant ( Smokeyard BBQ and Chop Shop- scroll up for that review) . Pool was warm- athough we didn’t swim other kids were. A couple small spas and firepits that were lit in the evening where people gathered at night. We enjoyed this location on a Sunday in October, so this was not primetime for Mammoth and the overall experience was very quiet. Businesses in the main Village shopping / eating area all seemed to close early. Even Starbucks closed before 9pm. I’ve never experienced a Starbucks that was dark inside, LOL !! When we checked out, it was a quick phone call from our room to the front desk and all we had to do was leave our room keys in the room. Then down to parking and out we went. There was a $20 resort fee. This disappointed us, although that seems to be the norm these days. Also the main gondola was not running. We were also a little disappointed over this because we had read on the internet it should have been running, even during the off season. The main Village area has quite a few shops, and eateries. Something for all ages and quite accessible. Everything else was exceptional. We will definitely go back next year, same time, but for a couple extra days to enjoy more of the quiet atmosphere Mammoth has to offer during their non-prime time. Read less
