Fullerton, California
Reviewed 11 April 2017

My room was so classy chic - done with excellent taste, and spotlessly pristine - yes THAT CLEAN!! The Innkeeper is your new friend instantly, she's so warm and welcoming and a very nice human being - you can just tell that about her. Very accommodating and hospitable. The Inn is super close to a FABULOUS grocery store as well!...

We stayed here for the weekend because my cousin was getting married in Crestline. This place was super cute and had a great view of the lake/town. The weather ended up being beautiful for a weekend in March... Our room was so cute and clean. It's within walking distance to everything! Loved everything about this place and would definitely love...

For price, nice room. Good TV, many channels, microwave, small frig, wince glasses, large bathroom, great towels, good bathroom amenities. BUT, and a big downside, room was advertised as having two QUEEN beds, but both beds were doubles - AND on one closest to the window, the mattress was very spongy, way too soft, and its left side did not...

Hello, Thank you for the kind words. I did have the beds checked they clearly are marked as Eastern Queens (longer but a few inches narrower), however even when we took off the memory foam the mattress might be a bit worn for some so we have tended to it. Thank you for bringing it to our attention..

We were tired and cold after a long drive to The Inn, it was pouring with rain, cold, foggy and dark. I had called earlier in the day to let them know we wouldn't make it before check-in ended. The lady on the phone was so accommodating, and would be sure to have the room ready and key available by...

We checked in for a few days before Christmas. We were pleasantly surprised at such a beautiful room! It was decorated for Christmas even! The bed was covered in comfy pillows and the sleep I experienced in the bed was amazing! The fireplace at night made it the perfect stay. The bathroom was well stocked with amenities and nicely done!...

We have stayed at the North Shore Inn many times, normally for our anniversary week-end. We have a couple of favorite rooms, and I was delighted when Nancy told me that our favorite room had just been redecorated and was available on a short notice! We have always felt that North Shore is our home away from home, and we...

My husband and I spent our 5th anniversary here. Hotel is lovely. Having a fireplace was wonderful. It rained our last day so we stayed in and just enjoyed the fire and each other all day.

My wife and I wanted to spend a few days around the Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear Lake area in the San Bernardino National Forest.

Hello, Thank you for the pictures and all of the wonderful comments. That room is actually getting a "face lift" this week ,you will have to check it out when new pictures arrive. You had ordered flowers & champagne for the room, perhaps that is why it seemed a bit high. The room itself was $125 a night. Had I...
