It was difficult to locate initially. Not easily seen from the road. The AC did not work initially, the sink leaked, the deadbolt on the door did not work the first night and the phone did not work in the room.

Great deal in Mammoth

Pros: The staff was helpful and friendly.
Location: The hotel is about 8 minutes from the ski lifts at Mammoth Mountain.
We were pleasantly surprised by how comfortable our visit was at the Best Western Hotel High Sierra in Mammoth Lakes, CA. The room was very comfortable and there was an indoor pool and spa that was clean and easily accessible. Included was a full cooked-to-order breakfast that was delicious. There were lots of parking spots close to the entrances, and the hotel is situated right next to a ski rental shop, a gas station, and a great coffee shop. We would definitely return here for future ski trips.
