I didn't have high expectations about this hotel after reading all the reviews, but decided to book anyway due to the location. Unfortunately, with my expectations already lowered, I was still disappointed. Here's why: 1. There were no towels in our room. When we requested towels, we had to wait over 3 hours because the guy at the front desk...

The hotel is a good stay for Big Bear. It needs some renovations: carpets need to be changed, lobby and walkway areas need an upgrade and possibly a new decor. Positives: 1. Good rooms. Not too big, but not too small. comfortable. 2. Walking distance to the Village. 3. Good Breakfast! 4. Fast service. We asked for extra towels and...

The Lodge at Big Bear is in a great location for walking to the Village and enjoying the seasonal outdoor activities. We booked a Spa Suite which was nice with a fireplace and big Jacuzzi tub. The overall condition of the property is a bit tired and in need of refreshing. The staff was friendly and helpful. This is not...

The hotel is OK, hás good rooms and Quick service. The lacation is great, walking distance from the Village where we could find many restaurants and stores.

We went to Big Bear for my son's birthday. I booked the hotel on-line through their website. It said they had a two bedroom suite, so I booked it. When we got there, we were informed they didn't have suites at their hotel. They were able to put us in two adjoining rooms, so that was nice. I liked the...

Very disappointed in this hotel, the walls are thin, you can hear the people talking in the next room, you can hear people talking as they walk in the hallway, you can hear the others when taking shower (water going through the pipes), you can hear every rooms door slam shut. We did not get any rest/sleep! If you want...

Best hotel located in big bear village. Easy to walk to all shops and restaurants. Close to snow summit skiing. They have a nice breakfast buffet. The rooms are nice and comfortable. For the price it's a great and better than renting a cabin.

This location is perfectly located in Village just a short walk away from bars, restaurants, and attractions. Staff is friendly. Also, it is a short drive (less than 10 minutes) to the nearest ski resorts. Also, the hotel has a trolley that is only $5 that will take you to nearby attractions like Bear Mountain, Snow Summit, etc. Things you...
