There is a vast array of options when it comes to hotels in Mammoth Lakes. For people who want to make the most of their time on the mountain during ski season, the Main Lodge area is the best option, as it is located just a few miles outside of town but very close to Mammoth Mountain. There you’ll find both a hotel (Mammoth Mountain Inn), and cabins (Mammoth Mountain Chalets).
The Canyon Lodge area is perfect for families or groups who want to stay both close to the mountain, but also to the Village (downtown), which can be easily accessed via the Village Gondola service. Accommodation options there, such as the Austria Hof Lodge hotel, are also cheaper than in the Main Lodge area.
If you’re looking to stay in the town center, you can find all sorts of accommodation types in the Village, from high-end options like the Westin Monache Resort, to the more affordable Alpenhof Lodge. In the winter, it provides easy access to Mammoth Mountain via the gondola, and in the summer it boasts several activities such as free live music.
Travelers who are just stopping by and prefer a clean and comfortable option for an affordable price can find most of Mammoth Lakes’ branded motels along Main Street.
Solo travelers who want to make the most of Mammoth Lakes but are on a budget can stay at places such as Motel 6 Mammoth Lakes or Moderne Hostel for cheap prices. Even though some of the cheapest places may be further away from Mammoth Mountain, the city offers free transit options on fixed routes in and around Mammoth Lakes all year round.
