If you booked a room in Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel for summer 2017, it’s important you call the reservation line right away. Hotel officials have announced that ongoing hotel renovations have unexpectedly forced the closure of the hotel rooms for the summer season.

While the Mammoth cabins, restaurant and Terrace Grill will be open in the summer, Mammoth hotel rooms, public spaces and gift shop will be closed until mid-summer season. For those travelers who would like to relocated to another park lodge, call the reservations desk at 307-344-7311 immediately. Reservations staff will try to book you at another park property based on available space. They also will offer a 20 percent discount off the rack rate of the alternate room type.

If there are no rooms available or you are not interested in those available, the hotel will refund any deposits paid for the Mammoth Hotel portion of your reservation.

The Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel & Cabins was built in 1936, although there’s an original wing of guest rooms built in 1911. It’s currently undergoing a two-year renovation to update the hotel’s guest rooms, public spaces, expand the ski shop and shuffle administrative offices. In addition, all hotel rooms at the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel will have private bathrooms after its two-year renovation.

Until a few weeks ago, the hotel was expected to open for the summer 2017 season but stay closed during the 2017 and 2018 winter seasons. The hotel is closed during the winter seasons (December 2016 through February 2017 and December 2017 through February 2018) with limited services available. It also is closed until mid-summer 2017 season, except for the cabins, restaurant and Terrace Grill, which will remain open.

Be advised that the hotel renovations to the exterior and interior public spaces will involve construction activity and the staging of materials and equipment around the exterior of the hotel through 2017.
