'Who needs the Ritz?' That's the message on one of the many customer thank-you notes that line the front desk at the Cinnamon Bear Inn. Guests praise the friendly B&B atmosphere of this village lodge, 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 free HBO. There's even an outdoor Jacuzzi. A full breakfast and wine and cheese are also included . A friendly, fun place to stay in Mammoth Lakes.
Rustic New England colonial decor. Private baths, HBO, forested views, and an outdoor Jacuzzi. Quiet area and quick access to skiing. Close to restaurants and shopping.
Great for those not sleeping together. Rooms have two beds, some with two doubles and some with a queen and twin bed.
Larger rooms with kitchenettes and private bedroom. Queen bed with full size sleeper sofa in the living room. Gas fireplace provides all your heat.

I got to this hotel way before check in but they still let me have the breakfast and got us into a room within 2 hours. The owners are awesome people and I would defiantly recommend staying here the outside looks a little broken down but the inside is very nice and it's right in town too!

The room was large enough and has a nice table and chairs by the window where flowers are planted inside and in the window boxes. The other window looked out into the woods. We like the sink being separate from the toilet and shower area. With this also being a winter retreat we understood how the carpet could be so stained. The breakfasts are homemade and custom order if you need plus there is standard hot and cold cereal available. The OJ is yummy. The best part of staying here, and why we will return, is the friendly helpful service. It reminds you of how a B&B is suppose to be run.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Room in the separate building was large (in fact two rooms) and contained a kitchenette and a bathroom. Overall, the room was clean, but a bit shabby. Refridgerator very loud. Good location close to shops and restaurants.

Best value in Mammoth Lakes. Stayed one night while doing a Yosemite, Mono Lake sightseeing getaway. Nice large, clean room with queen bed. Great shower. Quiet location. Good breakfast (ham & cheese omelet, w/ toast and coffee). Would stay there again.

We love staying at the Cinnamon Bear and have done so many times. The staff is so courteous and down to earth. Unfortunately though, the world marches on and our need for technology even when on vacation is growing. Without in room WiFi, we will not be able to stay at this hotel in the future. Wifi is in the lobby but for a working professional on vacation, that just doesn't cut it. And honestly the TV choices are not great. When traveling with kids, that's a big deal. We will miss staying here. If they ever get WiFi or better TV options, we'll be back.

Overall the lodge met my expectations. Breakfast was quite good. Front desk was very nice. Room was nice and cozy but not spectacular. Went in hot tub every night, so that was a plus. The beds are not the best, but I slept well. Pretty good location. It isn't the Ritz, but it was fine for what it was.

Only complaint was squeaky and very high elevated bed.

The cinnamon Bear is definitely one of the better values in Mammoth and convenient to town. The breakfasts are tasty and the owner is friendly. I would have liked to have a few more hooks in the room for ski stuff and towels. Also the bathroom needs a small table to place toiletries. The beds were comfortable. We'll go back.

Nice B&B. Employees were very nice and helpful. Food was good. Only complaint is that room heater couldn't keep up with the cold weather.
