    Thanksgiving break. Spent with family and friends. Great location, amazing service. Excellent breakfast. Walking distance to The Village. 2 minutes away from ski area and ski lifts. Pleasure staying at this hotel.

    « Always nice and quality place to stay in Mammoth Lakes! »

    This BW Plus is very nice. Could use an update but is a good value. Main thing is it is clean! Love the covered parking and the breakfast is always top notch... They even give you real drinking glasses...not those crappy plastic cups! I appreciate that very much..

    « Mammoth opening weekend »

    Nice stay, came up for Mammoth opening week. Always friendly staff, nice hot breakfast with made to orders eggs by Sergio! Room was clean and quiet. Centralized location with Kittridge sport next door. Great for rentals or those last minute items you forgot to pack. Slocums restaurant across the street.

    « Excellent two nights »

    Very friendly staff. Room was large and comfortable, with the usual amenities. Parking good and undercover. Breakfast was one of the best we had on our tour - Other Best Westerns' should take note! Easy walk to bars and restaurants.. I understand that the hotel is to be refurbished in 2017, which should make it even better. We picked here as a stop off from Yosemite then down through Death Valley. Perfect stop. Laid back hotel and town. Didn't have any snow, but didn't want any! Thoroughly recommended.

    Stayed here a few nights. Room was comfortable and spacious. Microwave and fridge were both useful to us as the Vons supermarket was only a few minutes drive away. The free breakfast is top class with individually cooked eggs to your liking. Nice selection of cold and hot breakfast choices. Under cover parking is available on site for those visiting in the winter months.

    « True mountain resort feel »

    WE came in as a group of travelers in our antique cars traveling around the Sierras. The location was perfect the accomondations were clean, The breakfast was the best of all the hotels we stayed in on our tour. The room was quiet and clean. We went to the pool that was indoors and very comfortably heated. There was an incoming storm outside and our cars were all able to park in covered parking. Thanks for the great stay.

    « Best Western Plus? »

    Mammoth Lakes Best Western Plus ? Accessible Room ? didn't request it. Didn't need it. Glad I'm not wheel chair bound. The ice bucket and drinking glasses (glass not plastic) were on top of the coffee maker which was on top of the microwave which was on top of the fridge. The adjustable shower handle was pushed all the way to the top. No wheel chair bound independent person could have reached these things. The shower leaked all over the floor. The bathroom door closes and won't stay open. Two chairs next to the table prevented wheel chair access. Reported above to reception ? was informed hotel refurbishing will include upgrades to accessible rooms. The king bed mattress leaned to one side. Our room was clean, location was quiet, best complimentary hotel breakfast we've had on our three week journey.

    « Good family place in Mammoth »

    This is a good option in a nice location in Mammoth. The town is quite spread out and we found the area a nice spot to be in for access. If you are more into being right at the base of the ski hill, that may be more up your alley, but not for us as we prefer more the feel of the town and to be in a slightly less touristy area. This Best Western is walking distance to some strip mall shopping and a few restaurants and a short drive to great restaurants like the Brasserie (in the bowling alley!), Campo and Mammoth Brewing. A fabulous coffee shop, Stellar Brew, is right in front, and we went there several times. The hotel breakfast is good, with cooked-to-order eggs and great staff. We found a couple of the front desk staff less-than-friendly, leading to a poor first impression and that was the only downside - all other staff were great. Rooms are oversized, clean and nicely decorated. A good choice at a fair price.

    « Great place! »

    We stayed here for 3 nights. The location was perfect for us, grocery store and wonderful Italian restaurant 4 minutes away. We were greeted by a smiling Alicia who recommended a room for our dog that was easy access. The breakfast was so good every morning. Custom made eggs,pancakes or French toast. Everyone was so friendly. After hiking non stop I stopped at front desk to ask for suggestions of sites to see. The young man gave me numerous ideas and directions. We were able to do 3 and were pleasantly surprised. We will definitely come back.

    « A Good Option »

    This is a clean, comfortable, and well staffed hotel. Their breakfast was excellent, with far more choices than most. The AC was basic, but it was difficult to reach a comfortable temp in the room. I would stay here again.

    « Family Weekend »

    The hotel was clean and quiet. Our family of 3 was very comfortable. The breakfast was great and had a nice variety. The only negative was the pool was too cold for our son to swim and burn off car ride energy.

    « Wonderful Stay & Experience »

    We really enjoyed our three night stay at the Best Western Plus High Sierra Hotel in Mammoth Lakes October 10th - 13th. We were very impressed with the reception we received at check-in. We requested Closed Caption on the TV when making our on-line reservation for our stay. The front desk was fully aware of this request and we were escorted to our room by a hotel employee who showed us how to operate the special remote and checked it out to be sure it was working. She also explained the AC/Heat and other features of the room and hotel. Unusual and unexpected service! The rest of our stay lived up to this first impression This hotel was exceptionally quiet even with it being fully occupied. The hotel is very well maintained, the halls were spotless. We had a large comfortable room with a desk, table and comfortable chairs which worked great as this was are "base camp" to operate from to photograph fall color. The hotel staff always offered a cordial and friendly greeting. The hotel provided breakfast is also unique in that it offers eggs and pancakes prepared to order by the chef. In addition there are fresh fruits and cereal,etc., all fresh and nicely displayed. What is also nice there is no TV to interrupt the pleasant environment and the staff buses the tables. The hotel provides a large number of covered parking places as well as exposed parking areas. Note: It is difficult to see the Best Western High Sierra Hotel from Main Street as it is located back from Main Street behind the Standard Gas station on the right side of the street as you enter Mammoth from US-395. Also beware / careful of the traffic entering and leaving the gas station.

    « Nice Place »

    The breakfast selection was good and eggs fresh cooked. The room was comfortable. The only negative about the room was the toilet was super slow and clogged up after midnight which meant calling for help at a bad time. I would advise all to monitor your credit card after check out as mine was compromised a few days after checking out of here. The location is great as far as walking to post office or dining.

    This was my 5th year doing my photography workshop out of this hotel. Emily and her staff always make sure we have what we need and are very courteous. The hotel is clean, functional and very convenient. That's why we keep coming back. Thanks Emily!

    « One night stay. »

    Warm friendly welcome from reception staff. First impressions of the Hotel are very good. Parked the car undercover in the parking area, which was handy as the rain was pouring down. Spacious clean room. Breakfast very good with made to order omelettes. The only downside to the stay was the toilet that blocked on first use. This was cleared promptly, but it happened again in the morning , flooding the bathroom again. This time they didn't respond and we had to use the facilities around the pool. Nice hotel in good location, would have given 5* if it wasn't for the toilet issues.

    « The WORST Hotel experience »

    If there was less than I star I would give them minus 5 stars. This is the WORST experience in a hotel in my life! I am a business traveler, and I booked this hotel through Hotels.com to rest up after a week of over 1200 miles through the California Central Valley. The only thing I wanted was rest and the only thing I did not get was rest. I told the attendant that they have to solve the issue that every time anyone opens and shuts a door the noise was such that it woke me up. Then I checked out a day in advance because what I wanted I didn't get, and the hotel still charged me for the entire stay arguing that because I booked through Hotels,com they could not process a refund. The manager called me later, not to hear my comments but to "explain" what was plenty clear. That they are not responsible if I leave the hotel before my scheduled departure due to my discomfort. If you're ever in Mammoth Lakes, run in the opposite direction of the Best Western Plus High Sierra Hotel!

    « Great "bring fido" hotel plus good breakfast! »

    The room was clean and comfortable. (We always miss our memory foam mattress.) Our room was close to a ground floor door making it easy to take our dog in and out. The breakfast was superb. A real cook offering pancakes (gluten-free an regular) and homemade cheese omelets or eggs of your choice. Loved the potatoes and fresh fruit. So many choices at breakfast! Friendly staff. The room was far enough off of Main Street to be quiet.

    « Good stop off if visiting yosemite »

    We found this hotel to be great no issues! There was no reason to give it 5 but it was clean tidy and had some great things going for it but no wow factor.. check in was prompt and friendly, breakfast was included, wifi and parking. Unfortunately the in house restaurant was shut when we were there but there are plenty of places to eat. We had had a very long day so made use of the pool and the jacuzzi it was the perfect end to a great day! We would def stay again!

    « Too much money »

    The cost of the room was not justified as it wasn't summer or snow season, the bathroom was outdated and had mold around the shower. The check-in lady was less than friendly, spoke quickly and became irritated when I asked her to repeat what she said. The bed was comfy though and the room was quiet.

    « The place to stay »

    At the tourist information in Mammoth Lakes is a complimentary phone booth with which you can call several hotels in Mammoth Lakes which are listed there. We ended up calling the Best Western Plus and were treated very friendly. The rate was good as well, so we stayed at this place. To make a long story short. For the rate a perfect stay with big and clean rooms, a great location and an awesome breakfast in the nearby restaurant.

    Eastern Sierra Ski town in winter but nice quiet town in autumn. Cool crisp air and friendly people. Hotel nicely decorated with great complimentary hot cooked breakfast. Helpful staff. Covered parking.

    « Great Stop Out of Yosemite »

    My husband and I stayed here after a long day of touring Yosemite National Park. It was just before 9pm when we got there. Check in was easy, the front desk Lady was amazing. She was so helpful with guiding us where to get a late dinner. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. They offer a breakfast in the morning at adjoining restaurant. We recommend if it is for a night. The prices were high and they did not offer a military discount.

    « Comfortable place at a reasonable price »

    A good location near the Village in Mammoth Lakes. A large inn with comfortable rooms and in a good location less than a mile from "The Village", the center of town. The breakfast is exceptional for a "motel/inn" having a chef who prepares egg dishes on order besides the nice selection of complete breakfast offerings.

    « Perfect! »

    A friendly, warm welcome, and a lovely HUGE suite. Very clean generally and a very comfortable, large bed. Massive bathroom with spa bath. Easy, free parking. The breakfast was great, though the removal of used plates etc could be slow or non-existent! But the food was very tasty and eggs cooked to order. An easy 45 minute drive to Yosemite, which is why we stayed here. Easy to walk to places to eat/shop. We felt very at home and relaxed, we would definitely stay again, we LOVE Mammoth!

    « Good base camp for Mammoth »

    « Good times in Mammoth »

    We pulled in around 10pm, tired and weary from 8 hours of driving from Las Vegas. The hotel clerk was very kind and sympathetic to our "plight". We got the 2 connected rooms we requested and the rooms were really comfortable, clean and quiet. The beds and sheets were of very high quality and we all slept soundly.... especially my 84 yr. old mom. We all enjoyed a morning swim in the hotel pool and the delicious, fresh food for breakfast. Very friendly staff and room attendants made our experience even more enjoyable. Good Job BW Mammoth - We'll be back again soon! ;o)

    « Perfect for Yosemite »

    We stayed the night after driving from San Francisco through Yosemite. They had a nice pool area where that were also a hot tub, very nice after a day in the car. The rooms where very large, free wifi and a fridge was among the nice amenties. Their breakfast was really good, you could chose from many ways of having your eggs, pancakes, bread, fresh fruit etc.

    « Employees are theives, dishonest & liars »

    We will never stay at Great Western Hotel anymore. Our valuable belongings got stolen. Employees uncooperative to show footage of the camera. We had to call the police ourselves to report the crime. Employee lied about the rates two nights before we checked in.

    « Friendliest Best Western yet! »

    We have stayed at many, many Best Westerns over the years. Of all of them I am going to say this is the friendliest Best Western EVER! Not just the employees but the guests themselves. Maybe Mammoth just brings out the best in people! Walking down the halls, in the elevator, lobby, even parking lot everyone smiles and says 'Hello! How are you?' Everyone just seems to be happy and outgoing! The staff in the breakfast area, just wonderful! The front desk personnel happy and willing to help with directions, information, WiFi problems..'how else may I help you today?' Our room (1 King) was clean, comfortable, plenty of pillows, cozy bedding.(As I always say; I hate those tiny in-room coffee pots!) However, there is always FRESH coffee in the lobby. The breakfast is wonderful! There are chefs to cook your eggs 'to order'! Plenty of choices from, hot, cold or in between. Fresh fruit every day. sausage, bacon, potatoes, pancakes, waffles, yogurt , juices, cereals. I think they are accustomed to satisfying people before they hit the slopes or the trails and giving them plenty of energy to do so. PLENTY of stuff to do in Mammoth and close by! We're not 'winter people' but we WILL be going back to the Best Western High sierra! LOVED IT!

    I have stayed at countless hotels over the past 20+ years, and the staff here is simply awesome. The room was comfortable and clean, the hotel is in a good location, and overall it was a great experience. I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to anyone.

    « A hard place to find good accomodations »

    Mammoth Lakes is known for its overpriced hotels, that said, this one is as good as some, no worse than most and better than quite a few in the area. The indoor pool was great and the breakfast was wonderful. If you have mobility issues, be advised that the parking is uphill from the main entrance. There is an entrance near the parking, but it required stair climbing to get to the elevator.

    « Fantastic! »

    Stayed here for one night while traveling through the Eastern Sierras. A bit pricey, but a good value for your money. Location can't be beat, right on the main drag with a number of dining choices. Room was great (one of the more luxurious on my trip). The breakfast in the morning was really good too (buffet style with eggs cooked to order), and was included in the price of the room. They have an indoor pool and hot tub that I didn't use, which looked very inviting. Friendly staff. Would stay here again.

    « a must stay if travelling the Eastern Sierras. »

    one of the Best "Best Western " hotels I stayed this year. close to all recreation activity in the Eastern Sierras: hiking, biking, fishing, entertainment, restaurants & outdoor activities. This hotel is well maintained & service is great. The rooms r large & well stocked. outstanding family service as well as couples retreat.

    « Return Visit - central location, good stay »

    Stayed here again. Pretty good stay. I might be getting crusty since I'm starting to compare all hotel beds to my Tempur bed, but basically it was a fine stay to the BW standards. Nice pics of the Sierra Nevada on the walls on the upper floor. The breakfast was pretty good, great service from the guys at breakfast... though a bit warm air-temp wise inside with the cooking and people. I should have read the breakfast coupon to see if that meant I could get another plate of eggs.

    « Great for skiing and all out door sports. »

    I've stayed here several times in the winter to ski and now to hike and bike. The breakfast is very good, the staff is terrific and the rooms are very comfortable. I had an issue with the lock and it was fixed immediately. The internet wasn't very good, but I've come to expect this. I will continue coming to this hotel. They have always treated me well.

    « Getaway »

    Having been away for over 20 years so we decided to visit the area. Front desk suggested a restaurant across the street that was really good. The only draw back for this place is trying to find it from the street. It is hidden behind buildings with a small sign out in front.

    « An ok stay here »

    This hotel was sufficient for what we needed for one night. We overlooked a car park and the bed really was't that comfortable. It is in a good location and I would recommended the bakery over the road 'Schats'! Very tasty! There is a pool and a hot tub although I did;t try it. The staff are very friendly and the breakfast was very good. My husband is gluten free and they offered homemade gf pancakes. There was hot and cold food and will do eggs to order.

    « Very Accommodating »

    Top notch customer service! We booked a room last minute due to the high number and quality of online reviews.

Very professional and will definitely book here again because of their policies.

    « Great hotel with great service and excellent staff »

    The Best Western Plus High Sierra is a great choice for a middle-class hotel at a reasonable price. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds and good amenities. But what makes this place special is the extraordinary staff. Friendly, professional and very accommodating. A huge plus is the made-to-order breakfast, included in the room price. I will definitely stay here again. Oh yes, and you should heed the advice about food and wrappers in your car - I saw Mama Bear and her cute cubs at 10pm in the parking lot :-)

    « Clean property, convenient location and great, free breakfast ! »

    The hotel is located right on main street (a couple of restaurants are just across the street ? we had dinner at Slocum's which was very good). Check-In was quick and the lady at the front desk was very friendly and polite. Our room was located on the second floor but could also be entered evenly from the parking lot behind the building if you don't want to use the stairs or the elevator. Everything was clean and quiet ? nothing to complain about A big plus was the included breakfast: made-to-order eggs and lot's o other (good) stuff to choose from. Although the whole hotel is an older property, it is in good shape. Keep it up, guys.

    The breakfast at this Best Western was better than most with eggs cooked to order. The room was a bit small and the ones in the back have a view of another building which is less than ideal in this beautiful setting. Close to shopping and restaurants as well as the Tesla charging station.

    This is a nice hotel that is centrally located on the main highway (203). The room was quite nice and the staff was very helpful. Breakfast was included and was highlighted by hot items and made-to-order egg dishes and pancakes. I would definitely stay at the hotel another time.

    « Great breakfast, great service, wonderful town! »

    We chose this BW because it was close to Yosemite but Mammoth Lakes area was just as beautiful and fun. So many things to do. Can not wait to return! The breakfast was a wonderful surprise. Eggs cooked to order, lots of meat and fruits, and comfortable seating. Very helpful staff.

    « Nice room, problem with charges »

    The hotel is a bit hard to find, as it is sandwiched between a gas station/car wash and a sports store and is set back from the road. Our room was nice and comfortable. Keep in mind elevators are centrally located so if your room is on the end of a wing, you will have to walk a little. Pool and hot tub were great, as was the free breakfast. Coffee is available in the lobby. The shower curtain would't stay closed and left a bit of a big puddle after every shower taken. The biggest issue we encountered was that we were charged different amounts for our two rooms, despite what my reservation said (the same amount for both rooms). It took about ten minutes before management fixed the charge for us. It was a bit irritating and frustrating that I had to argue about the price promised to me for both of our rooms. Other than that, our stay was nice.

    « Lovely! »

    We had a lovely Jr. Suite, I guess. Very nice room with an additional sitting area. Complimentary full breakfast the next morning. It was only for one night, but it was a very comfy place to stay. Had a fabulous dinner at Slocum's just across the street.

    « Best Hotel Breakfast I've Ever Had »

    Wonderful little hotel! Covered parking, nice pool, and the absolute best hotel "free" breakfast I've ever had. You eat in the restaurant on site, and they prepare your eggs, pancakes, etc to order. The service was excellent and the hotel has a great location.

    « Beware - fraudulent business! »

    We had a reservation for one night in May 2016 and were unable to reach the hotel due to the closure of the pass road in winter. We have checked our reservation details in advance and the voucher (which was provided in German language by the Best Western reservation system) says nothing about any closed roads. We have checked the hotel website later and the English version does provide this information. We immediately called the hotel when we realized that we will not make it to the hotel and that we stuck in Yosemite NP. We received a cancelling eMail at once and my credit card has been charge for on full night. Although I have addressed the hotel manager (Brent Cooley) and front desk manager (Emily) directly, I never have received an explanation from the hotel. I have received a forfeit bill without any comment from a hotel's staff member Lucero. Therefore I have raised a customer claim at the customer care desk of Best Western and they were telling me, that Lucero told them that we have to pay for that night because we did not cancel. After I provided them with the cancellation eMail Lucero had another lie one stock: They held the room all night long (although it has been cancelled) and therefore I now had to pay for one full night. BW customer care told me that they have no influence on the information the hotel provides and cannot reverse their fraudulent charge. Nevertheless, they told me that this has not been the first claim about this issue. They also encouraged me to open a lawsuit. I meanwhile have contacted my bank who also confirmed several claims on the credit card transactions regarding this hotel to me. I mean isn't it criminal to provide somebody with wrong information so that one cannot reach the hotel and to cause additional costs and stress in one's private vacation. And then to keep lying about what others supposedly should have done wrong. All that for 100 bucks. I think that is pathetic and I really to detest liars. That really is disgusting and those people are so dishonorable. Moreover, no matter what Emily - who always is busy in finding feigned words if a customer has not been satisfied or rude words if a customer posts a claim - is telling, it's likely to be a lie ? again. Do yourself a favor and choose another hotel.

    « Nice Hotel »

    We stayed here for one night after a family weeklong backpacking trip in the Sierras, so my review might be clouded by the fact that our room had a bed that wasn't the ground and actual running water. We booked it last minute and paid $200 with my Best Western rewards card. The rooms were decently sized and clean. The beds were comfortable and like I said, we could take hot showers! The hotel has a pool and a hot tub, both inside and both very welcome. The rate comes with a free breakfast, which is honestly one of the best breakfasts I've had at a Best Western. There is an Indian restaurant on the premises, which serves dinners, but also is the setting for the breakfast. Not your standard free breakfast fare. They do eggs and pancakes to order, including omelettes. There's fresh fruit, yogurt and granola, coffee, tea, hot apple cider, bagels and cream cheese, cooked potatoes, and sausages. Really complete and very good. We were pleased with our stay and would recommend it to others. It's a nice family hotel and oh, we even got to bring our golden retriever in from the car to stay in the room. They had a very cute dog bowl set up in the room and even a little doggy bed. Very nice touch.

    « Yogi Bear »

    I'm sure the manager had our best interests at heart, but he may have gone a little over board on the bear situation. He advised us to remove everything from our vehicle which was no small task when four adults are traveling together. Every soda pop, candy bar, or bag of chips had to be removed, before he'd give us a clean bill of health. It took three trips to get all our luggage inside and that was no small task. The manager did offer to help us, but we declined his offer. Despite all the bear BS, the next morning we did enjoy the complimentary breakfast. Had our eggs cooked to order and the cooks were more than friendly.

    « Best Western High Sierra Mammoth »

    Meager motel and hugely overpriced. Nearly $220 for a one night stay. Vagrants hovering around the property, parking inadequate, room dingy, staff was aloof and summarily dismissed my inquiries into obtaining another room. Website is deceptive giving the impression of a much better quality porperty. Motel is wedged behind a car wash and gas station in a lesser area of town. Breakfast was good. Overall experience was tremendously disappointing.

    To enjoy the Mammoth Lakes not in winter but summer days,you also may have a wonderful journey with Family to hike in some hills and enjoy the most beautiful sight view in the world.

    We have been traveling around ca and stayed at a few different best western hotels , which I have written review on .This one was a surprise in a good way. A little hard to find do to a little off the road and the sign was small. It is next to a gas station and car wash. The room was very nice , king bed and a little sitting area. The room had a microwave , coffee maker , and ref. Ice was down the hall. The room was quiet. The breakfast is very good , and above a standard best western breakfast. They will make you eggs or omelette along with regular or gluten free pancakes which were very good. There is fresh fruit , oatmeal, cereal etc...I would stay here again .

    The free breakfast was a nice surprise as it included made to order pancakes and eggs. There was a nice assortment of other items as well. The room was roomy and clean. Being clean is so important. It helped overlook the awful pillows and not the best soundproofing in the room. The location is immediately off of Main St but tucked in so there was no traffic noise. Mammoth Lakes is a sort of a mini Estes Park - do not expect a good price on a hotel during tourist season. But factoring in the peak season, the price was not bad.

    The prices are really very high for what is really just a basic hotel. They do have breakfast, which helps offset the price a bit. Was also not great by the gas station and car wash with vacuums running first thing in the morning. Just not what we expected.

    Everyone who has raved about the breakfast did so for good reason (you can custom order your eggs or get a cheese omelet, great strong coffee, pancakes, cereal, muffins, yogurt, potatoes, bacon, sausage, fruit, outstanding selection. Easily saved $20 eating breakfast here). The rooms are nice and clean, big enough (ours had a little stove, microwave, sink). The hotel is right behind a car wash which is a little awkward but not a big deal...overall a good location (right across from Schatz Bakery...skip this location and go to the one in Bishop if you have the time and it's on the way. For excellent coffee go to Black Velvet close by...their cold brew is outstanding). The guy that checked us in (Jordyn) was helpful & super nice (got an early check-in). I wish we could've stayed more than one night and I'd definitely stay here again. It wasn't the cheapest option but it's worth the cost.

    Booked last minute online, we'd never stayed at a Best Western, and we were pleasantly surprised. Check in was good and with free parking and breakfast included, the room was great value. We had an accessible room near the pool as this was all that was left, the drawback being that the shower curtain was too short in the wet-room and made the bathroom a bit slippery. The room was clean and of a good size. The breakfast the following morning was good, with eggs and pancakes cooked to order. Would recommend.

    After hobbling off the shuttle to Mammoth Lakes, we were greeted by friendly and accommodating staff. The room was clean and well-appointed. Breakfast, the following morning, was amazing, including buffet-style options and a cook-to-order breakfast bar. We particularly enjoyed the hot tub and pool, soaking our aching feet and joints. Of special note, Jordan at the front desk was extremely friendly and made us feel truly welcome. Thank you. I think that the only downfall of our stay was the price; it was definitely splurging for a long-distance hiker's budget. However, being in a high-traffic tourist area, the price was to be expected. We gladly paid and enjoyed every moment of our stay.

    After an extensive search, we landed on this property for the Yosemite leg of our trip. Physical property was beautiful and immaculately kept up. Internet speeds were around 3-4 mbps. We were able to hook an iPad up to the TV with cables we supplied to watch Netflix and the speeds were adequate. The biggest issue with this property is parking. I appears they have just enough parking. You have to display a permit. We had difficulty twice finding parking. They door keys operate a little differently from the usual slide in keys. Ask for instructions *before* you spend 15 minutes looking for the slot!

Very nice small things like..real "glass" glasses to drink from. Not those cheap plastic cups.. Really nice lotion and amenities in the bathroom. A real "working" desk chair. Nice, most hotels, if they have one, the raise portion rarely works! only down side was the mattress needs replacing and the WiFi was slow and choppy. Would not stop me from staying here again..

    « Good Location »

    The Good - Good location. Nice breakfast. Rooms are adequate and clean. No stained furniture (or anything else for that matter). Overall, no significant setbacks. The Not So Good - Hot Tub closes at 10pm After a day of skiing, I like to relax with a soak that's on the more quiet side, meaning after families have sent the kids to bed. Tough to make that happen when the hot tub closes at 10pm. 11pm would make more sense from my untrained vantage. Also, it would seem to make more sense to have pool towels at the actual pool rather than forcing guests to go to the front desk to get towels. The front desk can get busy. Seems odd to have to possibly wait to get a pool towel...The layout of the hotel is a bit funky with only one elevator and some back stairs that take a bit of a circuitous path. It's all a bit tricky with luggage, skis, and ski boots. Yes, one could take the main elevator and then hike it all the way to the back of the hotel. It would probably be a good idea for whoever checks in the guests to explain exactly how the layout and access points work. And perhaps provide suggestions as to how to access one's room from the parking lot. It's not hard to understand once you've done it once or twice but it's not exactly intuitive or user friendly (in my humble opinion)...The hotel charges for lost room card keys? Haven't seen that one before. Seems to me a lost card key is a cost of doing business for any hotel. To pass $1 a card key cost onto the customer seems a bit intrusive. I checked to make sure I wasn't accidentally charged for a lost key and if I had not double checked, I would have been charged due to an error on the hotel's end. So I do encourage guests to check to make sure about incidentals before checking out. Sure, it's only a dollar for a lost card key but there's a principal here...Also, I noticed some of the exit doors are a bit heavy to push or pull. That's a bit clunky if you're a senior or carrying stuff. And when entering or exiting a hotel, one is oftentimes carrying stuff. General Note - Yes, I did have more to say about the "not so good" in this review but it is a nice hotel and I would absolutely return for a stay at low season rates. High season I can imagine is a bit pricey but that's Mammoth.

    My last two visits to Mammoth included stays at the ski in/ski out Westin and I fully admit, if they had rooms available this weekend, I would have stayed again. They didn't and I wanted to ski so went online to find the options. I fully admit to grudgingly getting reservations at the Best Western. Wow was I wrong. Check in was simple and friendly. I requested a quiet room and was placed near the end of a hall. Our room was quite large and extremely clean. I never heard a single sound there in either of the two nights. The room price, extremely reasonable, included wi-fi and a better than average breakfast -- pancakes, bacon, sausage, yogurt and fruit. Everyone who works there was friendly. Even though the weather was nice this weekend, most of the parking is covered which is nice. They do NOT charge for parking. The shuttle bus stops in front of the hotel making it unnecessary to ever move your car. Terrific value

    The hotel was exactly what we needed. Great stay and perfect location to everything! We were able to walk to everything. It set back from the main road and offers a lot of amenities. The price was a bit high but only because we booked a week out. We were lucky to get it. We were very pleased, would definitely stay again.

    « Best breakfast ever for a hotel »

    This hotel was conveniently located and reasonably priced for the area and the season. What put it at the top of our list though was the breakfast! It is the bomb! Pancakes, ham, sausage, oatmeal, juice, muffins, fruit...and it was good quality. We couldn't have asked for a better start to our skiing day!

    « Ski Trip to Mammoth »

    While visiting Mammoth for the first time we spent two nights at the High Sierra Hotel, a Best Western affiliate. The room was comfortable and as typically spacious as most hotels you would find while away from home. The location was quite close to the slopes and it was easy to drive to and from the tram at the lodge. Staff were very accommodating and professional. The free breakfast was far and away the best breakfast outlay that I have experienced on the road. It was not a "continental" breakfast but boasted your choice of fried eggs as well as the "standard" scrambled eggs. There was a choice of three breakfast types of meat - bacon, sausage, and ham, as well as potatoes, pancakes, oatmeal, and assorted fruits. The only irritation I experienced was the WiFi. I was unable to keep my internet connection from more than ten minutes without having to "disconnect" and then connect again. The streaming capabilities were almost non-existent which for someone who functions in the world of online education is a sure source of frustration. Overall, the experience was pleasant and I would recommend this hotel for visitors to the Mammoth Lakes area (if they minimally need WiFi access).

    It is a great hotel -- and very reasonable price. It is the hotel I prefer when visiting Mammoth Lakes, CA. It is not one of the newes hotels but is is rather new. We have stayed at some of the older hotels and really prefer this one. There are some very nice, expensive hotels around but this one is well taken care of and we like it.

    « Solid Hotel For Skiers »

    The Best Western in Mammoth Lakes is a very good stopping point for skiers, especially for the price. I've been using the Best Western as my place to stay for the last 4 years as it is especially cost effective if not coming in a group (over 2 people) where sharing a condo is possibly a better deal. This is not a fancy hotel - it is a pretty basic Best Western - but it suffices very well when you are off the slopes. Also it is still in walking distance to a number of stores and restaurants even though it is on 203 as well as close to a shuttle bus stop (and coffee/tea place!). All important on those snowy days when you just want to leave your car under the covered porticos. The rooms are spacious (i.e., can store your ski equipment in them) and the bed is especially comfy. The bonuses are: Jacuzzi, pool and very decent complimentary breakfast (a must have prior to a good day on the slopes). Lastly, the staff there is always very friendly/accommodating when I have been there. Never a problem. Overall, this is a good place to stay. I would certainly come back again with no questions.

    « Great place to stay for family ski getaway »

    The Best Western PLUS High Sierra Hotel was a great place to stay with family for a ski vacation. We showed up early for our reservation and were able to check in before hitting the slopes for the afternoon. The staff was super friendly and happy to accommodate us getting into our room around 10:30am!! Great location and the shuttle for the village/skiing is right off of Main St. The continental breakfast was great- included eggs to order, bacon and sausage, pancakes, fresh fruit, bagels, oatmeal, etc. Hearty breakfast before hitting the slopes. We only used the hot tub- but the area was clean and attractive. We will definitely be back!

    « BW Serves Mammoth Sized Complimentary Breakfast »

    What a hidden jewel the BW PLUS High Sierra Hotel in Mammoth Lakes. Rooms were clean, quiet and plenty accommodating. WiFi was super easy and speedy. Breakfast was unreal, not your typical Hotel Continental Breakfast, the BW Breakfast was "Mammoth" with eggs made to order, pancakes, ham, sausage, bacon, fruits, cereal, bagels, toast, juice, etc. You can't beat the set up with kids, saved us big $$$ eating at the ski lodge and allowed us to ease into our fun family ski day.

    « Decent hotel in a remote location »

    Stayed here as we were passing by Mammoth Lakes and expected a clean hotel in good condition for a one night stay and this is exactly what we got plus a great new comfortable bed. It was also great we could do our laundry on our long trip in the hotel. Breakfast was included, but was really low quality. Eggs made from concentrate, bad coffee, overall low quality of food. The pool and hot tub nothing to rave about, but it was there.

    « Avoid holiday weekends! »

    I normally don't like to give so-so reviews but for the price I paid over the Presidents weekend i am disappointed. I understand that it is a holiday and rates go up, but this is honestly ridiculous. I have stayed in Times Square, Hollywood and several other places during a holiday and didn't pay this price. The room was just ok and was the typical old hotel. I don't know if I would stay here again.

    We are season pass holders at Mammoth, and stay here multiple times a year. We always feel at home and comfortable here, and this time was no exception. The staff is always friendly and helpful, and their training in customer service really shines. At check in we were helped by Jordyn, and his friendliness and helpfulness was a pleasure. The rooms are well appointed and clean, the housekeeping staff really does a great job. The breakfast buffet is great and the restaurant staff was extremely pleasant this trip. There really is every reason to stay here. One tip: bring your own pillow, theirs are a little uncomfortable.

    « Best Wester Mammoth »

    A very nice hotel close to ski area with breakfast and indoor hot tub and pool. Good size rooms with average amenities. Breakfast was good with hot meals included. Beds were descent, though could have been a bit more comfortable along with pillows. During high season or peak travel, parking could be a challenge at the hotel as spots are limited. Pool water was a bit cold, however, the hot tub hits the spot after day of skiing. Being indoors make it even better during the winter season. Kids room also available, however, not always open. Free Wi-Fi is also provided. TV programing is average with few HBO programing.

    « We keep coming back for our skiing trips »

    This is a really nice 3-story hotel located next to Kittridge Sports on Main so it is very central to everything. We came in late January to ski. The rooms are quite large, the bed very comfortable with plenty of pillows, a large sofa and large widescreen TV. The heater kept the room exactly at the right temperature. One recommendation is to request a room without a connecting door as it can get a bit noisy. Maid service kept our room clean and tidy. It was snowing the weekend we came so the covered car port parking was much appreciated. I had to put chains on so it was nice to do it under a roof and not with piles of snow around you. They have a grader come in to move and pack down the snow which makes it easier to get in and out. When it snows these car ports fill up quickly so if you are lucky enough to get one in the early evening, leave it and have dinner at the on-site Café 203 or walk across the street for dinner at Slocum's or Perry's. The hotel has a large indoor pool and spa for relaxing in after a day on the slopes. A big bonus is the included breakfast with made-to-order eggs and a variety of meats, fruits, pastries, breads, juices and coffee/tea. The Café staff were friendly and accommodating to our needs. The hotel staff was very friendly and whenever we came up front there was always someone at the front desk and not hiding in the back. Like I said we keep coming back because it is a great hotel.

    « Great Value - Liked it Better Than the Sierra Nevada Resort & Spa »

    I have stayed at the Sierra Nevada Resort & Spa and the Mammoth Mountain Inn during stays in Mammoth and I liked the Best Western best. I really like that the breakfast is included and was very high quality with attentive caring staff. Having the pool and jacuzzi indoors was also a big plus to me. The rooms were larger than the others and the beds were comfortable. The front desk staff is a bit too lean and I would have preferred black-out curtains in the room but other than that, we had a great stay and I would definitely come back.

    « Best western plus plus plus »

    We've just returned from a 10 day stay and can't praise this hotel enough. First off the practicalities - great location with ample parking and ski shuttle just down the road. Large rooms with all of amenities you need. Breakfast included, laundry facilities, pool, hot tub and gym. It's got it all! BUT HERE IS THE DIFFERENCE - these guys go the extra mile. Your room will be super clean, your bed super comfy - good job housekeeping. Your breakfast cooked by a friendly team who care that you enjoy it and will whip up your eggs fresh to your liking. The reception staff are accommodating, informative and friendly. The managers will personally introduce themselves and ensure your enjoyable stay. All for a really affordable cost. We were further impressed by the extra effort made when we were inadvertently disturbed by other guest activities in the early hours .. we were upgraded for our whole stay - outstanding service and customer care, particularly as this was in no way a responsibility of the hotel. I recommend 301 as a great suite with separate living area and micro/fridge/hot plate facilities.. Not that we used them with all of the nearby restaurants. Thank you and well done to 'every' member of staff who looked after us. If Best Western award honours, you deserve gold class ??.

    This was my third stay here and as always the manager and staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and the maid service perfect. They provided a full breakfast that rivaled some of the best hotels I have stayed at around the world. The location has great restaurants, stores, and bars within easy walking distance. The free Mammoth bus to the ski lifts, pickup stop, is only a block away. I will be going back next month for another week of skiing.

    We decided to take a few days and visit Mammoth. Three of us were going to ski and others were going to relax and explore the town. We were told check-in wasn't till 3:00pm and we arrived at about 11:00. When we arrived we got lucky and our 2 rooms were ready for us! Wish they would have had an airport shuttle...a suggestion. We found our rooms very clean, neat, and comfy. Plenty of room for our suitcases, etc. Hotel had nice looking pool area and fitness center, but we didn't have time to use them. Was excited to see a laundry room which is always handy! Breakfast daily was yummy and dining area was large and cozy. There was a business center upstairs we used one morning and overall we felt very comfortable during our whole stay. Location was super convenient for area shuttle too.

    « Hotel close to Mammoth Mountain »

    This hotel is a convenient place to stay while visiting Mammoth Mountain. The staff is outstanding, always with a smile on their face, and breakfast is nicely presented with a variety of foods and eggs done the way you like by the chef. The negative would be that the rooms are dated with old fashioned heating and refrigerator noises and the walls are paper thin and so thin that whenever the wife next door started to talk to her husband I was ready to respond!

    « Everything you need in a value hotel »

    The hotel is conveniently located: two shuttle stops (less than five minutes) from the main village. A few minutes more, and you are at the main lodge and the first of the ski lifts. You can really park your car and forget it. Like most Best Westerns, the High Sierra is really clean and well-kept, with comfortable beds. The décor is dated--the bloom is off the rose--but bearable, and without that musty odor or dinginess of most older hotels. The staff is friendly and courteous, from the front desk to housekeeping.(Housekeeping was worthy of a generous tip.) Everyone is eager to answer questions and to help. The free breakfast consists of the standard Best Western fare with the added bonus of a short order cook who makes pancakes and fresh eggs to your liking. I agree with the other reviewers: the walls are thin. We heard the doors slam, and the thud of heavy boots. However, the timing was predictable, and none of the guest were boisterous or nuisances. They have the service and comfort part under control. A little sprucing up and an investment in a better linen service (the pool towels were a little rough) will allow them to compete with the newer luxury places.

    Clean, comfortable rooms - this is an older property, not luxurious, but very well maintained. Great Breakfast.. The staff is friendly and attentive. We enjoyed our stay very much, it's very centrally located on Main. They do have an indoor pool - if travelling with kids, bring the suits. One thing - the walls are thin, we could hear our neighbors' loud movie; however, one quick call to front desk, and they quickly took care and made them aware of the noise level - and the neighbors were more considerate after that. Overall, a very good stay...

    « BEST PLACE IN MAMMOTH!!!!!! »

    This place is the BEST!! I travel for business, and this is the ONLY place I stay when I'm in Mammoth. I tried a few other places that were close to my workplace, but I was hooked after my first stay here. This is a great family friendly place as well. It is the perfect place to come back and thaw out after a day of ski/sledding. It even has great accommodations for your car and pets. And the rooms DO NOT smell like pets! The rooms are nice and super clean, the breakfast is warm and delicious, the breakfast staff is super friendly, and checking you in is Jordyn. Jordyn is WONDERFUL! Jordyn goes above and beyond. He recommends great local places for dinner, and has even moved his own car for me under the covered parking so that I would not have to dig my car out of the snow in the morning! He even carried my luggage out of the snow! It's people like Jordyn that will keep me coming back! :)

    « Dog-Friendly Room in Winter »

    Stayed 5 nights in December, room 225. The dog-friendly rooms are regular two queen bed rooms located near the back entrance on the second floor. There was a dog pillow/bed and a set of stainless steel dog bowls in the room. Pros: Room was large enough to place our hard-sided, large dog kennel in the space between the bed and the wall. The temperature controls worked and there was plenty of heat and hot water. The room was clean, with no obvious signs of residual dog after affects (like globs of dog hair or stains on the carpet). The back entrance was convenient to take our dog outside without having to go down long hallways. The hotel breakfast was good, although the eating space is limited so there were times when we had to wait a while. A couple times we ate at the empty seats at the bar, which was fast although we didn't sit near each other. The fitness room was a regular room with a good fan, two treadmills, one elliptical trainer, one spinning bike and a weight machine with cables. The TV in the room didn't work while I was there. The water fountain was also empty during my stay. I used the spinning bike, which was in excellent condition and one of the treadmills, which was also in good shape. Cons: The covered parking is limited and not very effective for keeping snow off the vehicles. It snowed twice while we were there and the plow service was prompt at clearing out the parking lot. Unfortunately, it left a wall of wet, sloppy snow about 3 feet high right at the end of the parking slots. Nobody at the hotel attempted to shovel it away and it froze in place, whch then meant we had to chip away at it ourselves to get our car out the next morning. There was a shovel near the front lobby that guests were using to get their cars out, but there was a lot of complaining going on in the parking lot. Overall we had a good visit and would definitely stay here again.

    « Good place to stay in Mammoth Lakes »

    We spent 1 night here in early October on our way from Moab to Yosemite. The property is a little difficult to find, since it sits behind a gas station. Thank goodness I had read on the forum about the location, so we were able to find it without too much difficulty - thank you other travelers! Some of the parking was covered, with parking spaces large enough for our GMC Denali with out squeezing. The room was comfortable - everything was clean, the bed was comfortable, we had a microwave and fridge. The bathroom arrangement was not the most convenient. The vanity was in the room itself, and the toilet and tub/shower were in a separate compartment. The door to this compartment would not stay open - it was designed to close automatically, probably due to its location at the door from the hall. This arrangement was definitely not to our liking. The included breakfast the next morning was the best we've had at any of this level hotel. Freshly cooked eggs and breakfast meats, plus good coffee. Pastries and juices were also available. The staff manning the breakfast area was pleasant and helpful. The young man staffing the desk at check-in was not really helpful, but the young woman we encountered later was terrific.

    « SMELL OF, VIEW OF???? »

    After getting our keys from a very nice woman at the front desk we parked and walked to the side door closest to our pet friendly room. There are two doors to get through and they swing opposite ways so if you are carrying your bags it just doesn't work. First door opens in and the second door opens out with not enough space to not get stuck. But okay, we can handle that, just doors. We opened the second door to a strong, strong smell of something like chlorine - you know that smell that many of the enclosed pool rooms have in hotels that prevents you from actually using the pool? Damned this wasn't looking good but hey, it's only the hallway. Got into the room, looked dark but very nice, went over to the window to open the curtains for some light and to our delight found that we were in subterranean digs that look out at the wall of another building 10 feet away. We felt like troglodytes. We are paying AAA rates of over $130 for this pleasure. Why do dog people pay more and get the worst rooms in this joint? Never again. Never.

The website also mentions shops and dining within walking distance and there is a restaurant across the street, however the village area which has many shops and dining options would be quite a distance if you were to walk. It is an OK hotel just over sells itself on the Best Western website.

    Larger than average rooms, with comfortable bedding, in a nice central location, with a better than average included breakfast, allow me to recommend this very nice Best Western. Even if Mammoth isn't your destination, it's only a few minutes off of 395, and is a good choice for travelers on that route, especially during spring and fall. Only minor problem, I was unable to get the AC to work, and had to crack a window.

    We stayed at the Best Western Mammoth Lakes on Oct 18. Our room requirements are simple. We want a clean room, good quiet nights sleep on a firm bed. Our room 332 was larger than we expected. It had a microwave and mini fridge. I normally like the wash basin inside the bathroom because I can then use the basin early morning without disturbing my spouse. In room 332, the wash basin was outside the bathroom, and positioned such that the wash basin light lit up the beds. Our queen size mattress was firm on one side, but lumpy on the other. The lighting in our room was good. Internet access was free and simple. The general location is in the resort area away from hwy 395. The breakfast was continental plus with fresh eggs, bacon and Canadian bacon, country potatoes and fresh fruit. It was probably one of the best we've ever had at a moderately priced hotel. All things considered, we had a good stay and would recommend this hotel to a friend.

    The hotel was inviting from the moment we stepped into the lobby. The room was nice although a little cramped. The amenities were nice. The only problem was the hotel restaurant being closed and we had to run across Highway 203 to go to supper and back and in the dark that was dangerous.

    « Good stay but need more luggage carts »

    Good place to stay at Mammoth but they definitely need more luggage carts for guest use for check in especially if the hotel is busy which I believe is the majority of the time. I have stayed at several hotels in Mammoth in the past and this was my best overall experience.

    « Not friendly with customers who book online »

    The property was nice but the maid service was only adequate. One day they forgot to clean our room all together and we had to wait just to get towels to shower after a long day of hiking & biking. When checking out we described the lack of cleaning the room but nothing was even noted because we booked online.

    Great hotel and a great breakfast!! The bed and pillows were very comfortable. We were very glad we stayed there. They had sheltered parking for our motorcycles which was very nice. I have to say again how great their breakfast was. Much better than any other best western we have stayed at. And we stay at alot of best westerns.

    « Not bad for the price »

    W chose here based on price and also the fact it may be noisy staying right in the village. The hotel itself appeared fresh and new and is nicely decorated. Breakfast was ok and what you would normally expect from best western. The staff were friendly. The coffee however was truly awful - the one day it tasted like they had put six times the amount of coffee they should. Even adding hot water did not really help. The room was a king bed room and was spacious. Comfortable bed and all very clean. Wifi was a little slow but fine. The only real negative is the location- it is by the side of a tire garage and petrol station. Our room overlooked a roof. You will not get views from any room. There is a free town shuttle that will take you to the village but be prepared to wait as they did not run to schedule on either day we used them. We caught the bus up to the village and walked back as it was all downhill. It takes 15-20 mins but beware it is down a main road and some of the route has no sidewalks! Next time we may look for something closer to the village even if it costs more

    « Great Location, fun town! »

    Prior reviews have commented about the condition of this property, so I was a little concerned about our stay, but I was pleasantly surprised. The staff here are wonderful. While the hotel is older and the outside could use a little sprucing up, our stay was perfect. We were in room 305 and the room was huge! Bed was very comfortable and room was quiet. Housekeeping staff went to a lot of work to add personal touches, and they did not go unnoticed, room was very clean. The breakfast went far and above the usual continental breakfast, and had a chef that prepared fresh food continuously. A group of motorcyclists were eating when we arrived and there was plenty of room to sit and we did not wait for our food. Cute town with lots of personality. Would definitely stay here again!

    « Clean & Quiet, Great Cont. Breakfast »

    Our stay at the Best Western Plus High Sierra in Mammoth Lakes was a pleasant and restful visit. The beautiful foyer and mezzanine invited us in with a good feeling about the property. We asked for a top floor room and they graciously provided a nice one. The room was large with an approx. 40" TV, a fridge, microwave, 3-way lights that actually worked, and it was quiet, quiet, quiet. The property is located about ˝ block off main street behind a gas station. Our room had two queen beds. It was clean throughout including the floor and bathroom. The furnishings were clean and up to date including the bath tub caulking. There were two upholstered chairs in good condition. The beds were nicely firm without any sleeping divots. Each bed had 4 pillows, there were real glass drinking glasses, a coffee maker, several accessible electric outlets, USB chargers, and a wall mounted thermostat. The heater worked well. There was lots of walking room between beds. There were two drawbacks to the room, both of which I reported to the front desk the next morning. The first is that the bathroom fan was very noisy, so much so that we were reluctant to use it out of respect for the neighboring rooms. The second item did not bother us much and but I reported for future maintenance, that being, a small patch of of broken pixels on the TV. It was in an upper corner of the screen so did not interrupt viewing. The breakfast fare was typical of most continental breakfasts except that the items were of much higher quality than most. There were homemade thin pancakes, real scrambled eggs (we watched the cooks make them), ham, bacon, large and delicious sausage links, fruit, breads, real orange juice and much more. A voucher is given to each guest at check-in for the guest breakfast so the cooks can differentiate overnight guests from breakfast walk-ins. I was very happy with the Best Western Mammoth Lakes. I would stay here again. Cost was $150 including tax. Score 5.

    « Good for Vacationers; Not so much for Business »

    This place would be fine for a family vacation. It has a pool and spa, with refrigerators and micros in rooms. For a short business stay, it's okay but it really doesn't cater to that. It's kinda hard to find as it's right behind a gas station and noisy car wash. My room wasn't very modern and the bed was a bit long in the tooth. Still, I thought it was a decent value and it was close to everything I needed.

    « Comfortable »

    After a long drive we were happily greeted and given precise details including, parking permit (free), how to get to the room, breakfast times, extra indoor pool towels and local amenities. A complimentary brew at reception was an added bonus as the weather was nippy for the time of year. The room was clean, warm, modern, and well looked after. The location is ideal with a few picturesque shops and restaurants within walking distance. Would recommend.

    « Excellent location, nice hotel »

    Right off main street near shops and resturants. In door swimming pool and clean quiet hotel. Rooms are spacious and I was delighted that they made the effort of making it welcoming and charming with towel figures and contaniers and best of all they had a very nice wooden lap desk that I enables me to sit in bed and type on my kindle in comfort. Ive not seen this in any other hotel and it's quite a nice touch. The room has a microwave, small refigerator, coffee maker, and safe. It's nicely appointed with flat screen tv, king bed with seating area containing coffee table and sofa bed. Breakfast was included in price of the roo. The room looks out to another part of the hotel which is ok because we are spending the majority of our time outdoors and needed a place to spreadout, relax andn get a good night sleep before continuing our journey.
