Me and my family stayed there for 2 days and on the second day, we had to leave Big Bear early. My son got really sick because of the pool. The pool was so cold that he could hardly breathe or talk. Later on in the evening, my son was rushed to the emergency room. Good thing that they cured...

We arrived spontaneously at big bear. Looked for places to sleep the night with 8 month old baby. Not too many left. So We were happy there was any place. No baby cribs so we "made" a bed on the floor. This turned out to be more comfortable than the awfull bed. The bed had an inward bulge couldn't even...

The hotel was very chalet-like and the way the units (hotels and cabins) were arranged made for a community feeling. The rooms were small, but an effort to maintain the mountain atmosphere was evident. We stayed in one of the apartments, not a cabin, and it could use some updating. The tub showed signs of repair, the shower head dripped...

we were here for 3 nights while my wife took classes, and we enjoyed our stay. The unit has a fridge, stove, and microwave, as well as a wood burning fireplace. It is well off the street, and was beautifully quiet at night. When we needed a blender and pitcher for Margaritas, Tom at the front desk gave us them...

1986 called and wants its hotel back. The cabin we booked appeared not have been redecorated or even cleaned in quite some time. I wouldn't have gotten in that jacuzzi without a hazmat suit. The bed came with hair, rips and stains but the fireplace.....no gas, no wood. Even if this place was cheaper by half I wouldn't have stayed....

We decided last minute to stay over night in Big Bear after a day of snowboarding. It was Presidents Day weekend and everything was pretty much booked. We had a stroke of luck at the Black Forest Lodge. There was a jacuzzi in the room and cable. The lobby smelt like lavender and the staff was friendly. We will definitely...

Got to our hotel room: hairs on sheets and in the shower. Got another room: light bulbs burnt out in front room. Hotel very outdated, shag carpet, poor lighting (so you can't see the nasty). We were not able to get a refund because we bought package deal with our lift tickets. But it was so terrible, we just left...
