“Good crash pad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2011

We decided to stay for one more day in Big Bear since the forecast promised lots of fresh snow overnight. This motel is situated on the outskirts of Big Bear but it is close to the slopes and that was what we were after. It is a Motel 6 so nothing fancy, but it was clean, warm and quiet enough for a good nights sleep. It was also big enough to spread out and dry the gear.

Stayed for one night on MLK holiday weekend. Noisy guests next door when checking in at 10pm- complained to office, then it was fine.

(hotels.com messed up by booking only 1 night vs. 2. Calling motel 6 directly no good- had to call hotels.com to fix)
No complaints. Best benefit is cancellation policy (up to 6pm of checkin) vs. every other cabin/hotel in Big Bear with their one night cancellation or other fees. Best deal by going to motel 6 web site directly- then can change directly. not worth other sites- have to deal with them not Motel 6 for any changes.

This hotel is nice but for the price a little less than what we thought it should be. We don’t expect the Ritz but come on … no shampoo?? Other than that and the female phone call at 5 am with the horny women this place is nice enough. The people in Big Bear make this place worth coming to.

Just what you would expect from a Motel 6; a clean, comfortable room (though ours had two beds in it so it felt a bit cramped).

PRO'S:
Centrally located
Large fenced-in parking lot
Clean facility

CON'S:
No shampoo
Rooms in center of hotel a bit of a walk to the parking lot
Oddly-shaped shower
Small room (at least it feels that way)
No in-room clock

Overall my wife and I had a pleasent weekend stay at this hotel, although we we're in town for a dunebuggy show & off-road event and diddn't spend a lot of time at the hotel.
