Main lobby sitting area with illuminated image of skier on snow

Our rooms are well furnished with memory foam beds made custom specifically for our guests, locally sourced roasted coffee, a microwave, mini-fridge and HD satellite television.  A night here will get you rested and ready.  In the morning, walk downstairs through the lobby to enjoy breakfast in The Resting Nomad restaurant; and while you are there, grab an Americano or Latte. After your meal, stop by the front desk for a chat.  We love sharing with our guests our favorite hike or lake to picnic at.  We also have you covered with the most convenient check in or out. Coming soon you can download our app for a mobile check in experience complete with digital key on your phone.  In the meantime you’ll be receiving an email invitation for a mobile check in without the digital key or you can stop by the self check in kiosk in the lobby.  No more lines to wait in.  We look forward to your arrival.

Had a great 3 night stay at Empeiria Grand Sierra for some summer season hiking in Mammoth. Room very clean and quiet, bed super comfortable. Best of all very nice staff. Will stay again my next visit up to the lakes

Had some confusion about dates when we first checked in but the hotel took care of everything. Had a lovely stay. The pool and hot tub were nice after a long day of hiking. Within walking distance of a bunch of restaurants and bars. The shaded parking spots are nice. Beds were comfortable and rooms were clean and furnished nicely.
