We stayed at two different rooms. The first eas bigger with a jacuzzi and half kitchen, and the second was smaller, but clean, cozy, and with a fireplace. The staff is nice, the hotel is inexpensive, clean and have a nice bath!

I needed a place to crash for the night after some midweek skiing, and got a room in the east block for $75. I have no real complaints about the room. It had a slight odour on arrival, but this seemed to be mostly from cleaning. The bathroom was slightly dated and worn, as was some of the furniture, but...

To be positive, here are a few good features of this motel/cabin that has been there forever. The location is 5 minutes away from the slopes. The price was under $100 per night, and they welcome pets (for a fee, of course). Can't complain about the bed either. And they have a jaccuzi in each room or cabin ( a...

Location is good, rooms are 2 to 3 star, not just because of the features, but because of the cleanness (or lack of that) and how they've been maintained. But why I rate it one? because I couldn't give it a ZERO! the staff are different, there was a couple Valerin and Jerry in the night of our check-in who...

I can not recommend this place at all. Though it is charming on the outside and the staff is nice, the hotel room my husband and I stayed in was very run down. No privacy!! Very noisy! The majority of the people around us were either fighting and screaming at each other or drunk/on drugs, loud and wandering around like...

Hello, we are sorry that you had a bad experience at our lodge. Our queen motel rooms have been redecorated. Which room were you in? Sorry for the disorderly people that were checked into our lodge. We cannot control what people say and do. You said that you contacted us regarding the noise and that we did nothing. We would...

While there are hotel rooms too, we chose to rent our own cabin, complete with fireplace and a Jacuzzi tub. We used both, depending on what month we visited. Firewood is available in the office, along with hot coffee and tea. The pool and hot tub was nice during the Summer. Only a few blocks to walk to the "Village",...

We arrived at big bear last September 24 all the way from the Philippines and stayed overnight. The rooms were spacious and clean. The bathroom while spartan, served its purpose. Rita, the owner was a gracious host and very accommodating. We will definitely stay there again on our next visit.

Lovely location very friendly welcome and good value. Room done out in Bavarian style and comfortable bed. We stayed one night on our car tour, an easy drive from LA but we hit a lot of traffic coming Friday afternoon.

The only thing cute abut my room was the fire place. The price was good and you get what you pay for. It had pool, not heated. Free Wifi-ok., The walls are paper thin-I could hear my neighbor snoring.

This totally looks like something out of the Black Forest in Germany. It has great atmosphere. It is very minimalistic. No add-ons, which is great if you just want a place to sleep and keep your stuff. There is a TV and good Internet, so that is helpful, but the fireplace is gas and a little weird. The beds are...
