Stayed here over the summer, be forewarned that the place is not as pictured. Rooms had a old wooden smell to it, but don't think there's much to get by that. The furniture and decor are old and tired. They don't really maintain this place all that well or that often. Staff was nice but I think that's if you...

We stayed here in June via a voucher purchased with Amazon Local. Check-in time is 3:30, yet there was not only no office, there was no one on-site to help us. Tim arrived at about 5p, full of apologies. Our room was just OK. The best I can say was the bed and bedding were clean and new. Tim collected...

We arrived for our first family vacation only to find out they lost our reservation. I had the print out of our hotel confirmation but that made no difference. Staff was friendly but not helpful in finding us new accomodations.

Michael we are very saddened to read your comments. Yes two young men (22 and 23 years old) showed up to check you in and they signed you in, in the lodge. The Lodge is like a bed and breakfast where we rent out the rooms and there is a common area for guest. there is also a common kitchen...

This place feels like home. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in big bear. Friendly staff. Amazing price. Beautiful grounds. Keurig in every room. The best place in big bear. Period. Fireplaces, mountain view, stream, fake deer (in a cute not creepy way), out of the way.

I booked 2 nights in a "chalet", chalet #9 to be specific, we had a voucher for a great deal at $89.00 for 2 nights. Thought it was an awesome deal, even though we had to book outside of weekends. We got there a few minutes after check in time, and at first we were quite disappointed by the surroundings....

“Know what you're looking for in Big Bear as far as the quality of an inn or hotel. Maybe it's best to book through the actual inn or hotel since several of these vouches through internet agencies have proved to be less than advertised. "You get what you pay for" seems to apply here!!!”
