As Mammoth Lakes begins to welcome guests back, lodging is open with new safety protocols to keep guests and hotel employees safe. Read the guidelines below to learn more about how to travel responsibly when you stay at a hotel or other rental property in Mammoth Lakes.

How Hotels and Lodging Are Keeping Guests and Staff Safe

When bookings for short-term rentals resume, here’s how lodging properties are keeping guests safe. In accordance with the State of California, Mono County has developed health and safety guidelines for hotel and lodging properties to operate under. Some safety measures are required by the Mono County Public Health Department and others are recommended as additional health and safety precautions.

Some safety precautions include:

  • Implement contactless policies whenever possible
  • Housekeeping will not enter rooms when guests are present
  • Maintain distancing in all eating areas and eliminating self-serve dining options
  • Ensuring frequent cleaning of common surfaces
  • Eliminating items that cannot be easily cleaned, such as magazines, ice buckets, cups, etc., from rooms
  • Implement additional cleaning policies in alignment with state recommendations
