We stayed in the Main Inn on the second floor. Our room had a window that looked out towards the Lake Arrowhead Village Sign and in the further distance a mini view of the lake. Our room was the largest in the Main building and it did not disappoint. We did not use the Jacuzzi tub for two but the... More

My wife and I went for a Friday night. The room was nice and jacuzzi tub for two was relaxing. We had a king bed that was very comfortable. Nice bar downstairs with karaoke. Karaoke was loud so either enjoy from the bar or you will hear it from your room. Drinks were a little pricey, but they were good.... More

Do yourself a favor. Don't stay at the Saddleback Inn. The rooms are pretty run down and restaurant is absolutely horrendous. Don't be allured by the offer for a free breakfast. It is a poor excuse for a breakfast....poorly presented, poorly prepared and inadequate. We ate their for dinner...which was a nightmare...poor service, poor food and for breakfast. We grabbed...

Let me tell you there isnt alot of choices to stay in Arrowhead unless you look at cabins, however for hotel/motels there are only a few. The Saddleback is an absolutely stunning and beautiful place to stay. Its not brand spankin new so do not expect a four seasons or Ritz, its a bit older however well maintained, I saw... More

My husband and I stayed there for our anniversary for 3 days and didn't want to leave! Staff was friendly, rooms were very clean and adorable. Bed was very comfortable, jacuzzi was huge, and the whole room was very nicely decorated. The scenery was gorgeous, we sat outside every morning with our coffee and watched the view. Free breakfast was... More

Came to Saddleback Inn with my family and we got 2 rooms. I must say that for the price, the rooms were wonderful. They were nice, cozy, and at walking distance from Lake Arrowhead Village. There's a 7 11 located right in front of the check in place. Had a cute little fireplace and a nice patio outside (picture posted).... More

Stayed in Cornhuskers Cabin 23. It was more like a small hotel room with free standing walls than a cabin. We stayed here because it was pet friendly, and we had our little dog with us. The good: Cabin was cute, clean, and relatively updated. Decent cable channels, heater worked great, tub was definitely large enough for two with tons... More

we stayed in a cottage with the living room (with pull out sofa) and the bathroom downstairs, and the bedroom upstairs (and a small bathroom with WC and sink). It is a real mountain style fairy tale cottage hidden among the tall pine trees. Your view is like being in the forest. The cottage was clean and comfortable, with efficient... More

Our recent stay at Saddleback was less than we expected, especially for the price. They advertise an "all American breakfast", included. We came downstairs to find a small table with powdered scrambled eggs, a bucket of frozen toaster waffles, frozen heat & serve sausage, & one type of cheap bread. The rest was just as bad. Second rate motel fare.... More

We went for 4 nights. We were told the room (St. Moritz) was for 3, but it was barely big enough for 2. Black fungus came out of the jetted tub, the heater did not work. We left disgusted after the first night but the hotel would not refund us any other monies claiming they have a 14 day cancellation... More
