I don't plan not to give a "bad" review to this place originally; even though the outlook of this lodge is worn out, dark and unassuming, the inside still seems "okay" or acceptable. Yes, the sofa is a old and torn but still sit'able and I got insect bit after sitting there a little bit. The kitchen is nice -... More

Great place to stay in Big Bear. If you want to walk everywhere it's convenient to many Restaurants. The local bus service also has a stop within a block and you can use that to get to the Village or to the grocery stores.

My wife and I stayed here for our 46th anniversary. It was our first time at this lodge, when checking in the front desk girl, Veronica, greeted us with a smile and a nice hello. Check in was quick, she told us what they offered and what was available at this time of year. Gave us a list of discounts... More

The lodge is in an excellent location. My wife and I walked around, and became far more acquainted with Big Bear, than in all our previous trips combined. Shopping, including souvenirs and the lake are within walking distance. You'll need a car to get groceries though but, with the kitchen space, the drive is well worth it. We cooked all... More

We stayed here for the first time a few weeks ago and got a great deal on Booking.com. The place was spacious with all the cooking stuff we needed. There are 2 propane Weber grills outside, next time I'd consider BBQing now that I know there are grills. All the rooms were apparently renovated except a few (? 2 units)... More

My family of four loved this property. It is a bit dated but still very clean and well kept. We had suite 200 and it was great. We were able to stay 2 nights in a snow storm without ever having to leave the property. We brought food and prepared all our meals in the well appointed kitchen. (Note to... More

Not used to a place that does not have 24-hour staffing. I was also taking my disabled father along with me, so I requested a ground floor room. Received 1st floor room, but they did NOT mention during booking that there are STAIRS going up to the first floor!!! Arrived at 8pm due to insane traffic up the mountain, and... More

Loved my apartment! Fireplace in living room was fun, although it stays toasty in unit, still put it on! (Hint: have to turn the gas on a little bit & light with matches you'll find in kitchen). Has everything you could possibly need. Super location! Can easily walk to the Village where all the cool shops/restaurants & some activities are!... More
