Cinnamon Bear Inn Bed and Breakfast

113 Center Street , Mammoth Lakes, CA 93546-3338 USA (Show map)


Who needs to pay resort fees? Our guests never have. That's the message on one of the many customer thank-you notes that line our front desk at the Cinnamon Bear Inn. Guests praise the friendly B&B atmosphere of our Inn, tucked off Main Street next to a large wooded area. You don't have to sacrifice comfort and style for coziness, though, the rooms at the lodge feature four-poster beds, full baths, and cable TV. There's even an outdoor Jacuzzi. A full breakfast is included. A friendly, fun place to stay in Mammoth Lakes.

We've stayed here a couple of times and will stay here again when we return to Mammoth.

Missing Reservation for Creekside

4.0 on October 11, 2015

We loved our stay at Cinnamon Bear; however, our stay was at the Creekside Inn in Sonoma. Our reservation was sent to Mammoth instead and when we arrive in Sonoma, we had no reservation. The hostess was very nice and found us a place to stay for that evening and we returned to two nights at Creekside. Lovely place and met some nice people. Breakfast on the first morning (Friday) was delicious. The next morning was the morning we had to leave and breakfast was not being served until around 9:00 which meant we had to go without breakfast. Other than those two mishaps - our stay was lovely. We would come again but I will call two or three times to make sure our reservations are in the right place.

Nice hotel for skiers

Great Find

My bed was so comfortable and I loved the fireplace. This was a great value. Home cooked breakfast in the morning was the topping on the cake. The rooms can be small for a family but the Inn has big room you can hang out in. I will return next year.

Hidden Gem

We have been staying at the Cinnomin Bear for over 25 years. It is always clean and homey and the breakfast is the best part. We have stayed other places (hotels/motels) when Cinnomin Bear has been booked and we always kick ourselves for not having made an early reservation. You can't go wrong by staying here.

I reserved a room for 2. The room was pretty small, but I liked it and it accommodated me and my boyfriend and all of our snowboard gear. It's centrally located - easy walk to the shuttle stop and nearby cafes. The breakfast and snack hour was great! Everyone was really friendly.

Quaint and Convenient

Stayed here for our ski trip and we found it very convenient. We're planning on coming back during the summer!

this place is a gem!

The staff is extremely pleasant and helpful. The location is very convenient. Rooms are comfortable and clean. The only thing that I would like to see for them to bring one notch up is the breakfast. The breakfast was very basic. May be it's me but the whole appeal of a bed and breakfast is to have a nice room with a nice breakfast. The room was great, the breakfast can definitely be better.

Wonderful time for one night

It was great. Room was nice, especially the fireplace. Food was wonderful, Rudy the inn keeper is one of the nicest guy you will ever meet. It was ALMOST perfect.... However, I felt very itchy after the stay, and we suspect that the bed is dated and it might have bed bugs. If they can improve on that, It will be perfect!

A Nice Place to Stay!
