I really liked the staff here. Don't expect luxury, but the sleeping is fine and the hotel is close to everything. And the price is very good. When I wanted to change rooms I was helped right away and they put me in a much nicer room. But no views of the lake, just trees and parked cars. And it... More

Stayed at hotel for one night to go to concert at Harvey's. Walking distance to event, so very convenient. Room was clean and no frills, basic accomodations with small pool and continental breakfast. Good choice for the price.

My wife and I stayed here on a Monday night in July in a queen bed for $55 after tax through hotels.com. The room was very basic but everything worked well and seemed clean. There was a small TV, fridge, and microwave. The bed was fairly comfortable and the breakfast was only fair at best (bagel with no cream cheese... More

This hotel was just what we needed. The rooms were clean, a bit outdated, but who spends waking hours in their hotel room on vacation? They are very pet friendly with patches of grass and waste bags around the hotel. Bringing our dog was only $15 extra too, much lower than other places. Each room is provided with coffee, shampoo...

I recently led a quilting retreat at Big Pines, and the facility was just perfect for our purposes. We had the use of a lovely classroom, with natural light from one wall of windows (a huge plus for quilters). My sleeping room was clean and quiet. The staff were fabulous, always there if we needed help, always cheerful and welcoming.... More

Besides being a safe and clean family- friendly hotel one block from all the Stateline action, the Big Pines Mountain House is a terrific location for a retreat. We enjoyed the lovely newly remodeled Conference Room with kitchen and large tables with great window light for our quilters. The staff was so helpful always. We enjoyed morning and evening walks...

The hotel is a little tucked away from the main street.On the outside, the lodge lacked character compared to the other ones in the area. But the room on the inside was surprisingly modern. It was also very clean, with a fridge and microwave. The toiletries were nice and smelled earthy and lovely. The continental breakfast was simple, but there... More
