This is not a place to write home about, but does the trick for providing a place to stay in Running Springs. Price was decent and we were only 2 minutes from our family's home and 5 minutes from the "party" site for a family gathering / reunion. We were there for 2 nights - not long enough to look... More

I've stayed at Giant Oaks Lodge annually with family and friends for many years now. The cabin-cozy like theme of this hotel is wonderful. The staff is friendly and the location is within walking distance to some really good restaurants and a grocery store. We always enjoy the indoor pool and spa after a day of snowboarding. Its our number... More

Wow, we got a beautiful cabin that felt like you were in a Fairy tale from the inside complete with a beautiful stone jacuzzi that spills over into a wonderful fireplace. Minutes from Lake arrowhead and big bear, this small town has all the snow and charm you could ever ask for and it's less than 90 minutes from LA.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the giant oaks lodge. It's a great location and with it's cute town right next to it, this nice and cozy, adorable lodge is just perfect. We'll be coming back again for sure!(:

Over priced no parking worst of all housekeeper handed me the bedding when I requested bed be changed. Didn't offer to refresh room after week stay. Only good thing was the girl that does yardwork returned my wallet and glasses I'd dropped while unloading car. She also helped carry my luggage and wouldn't accept a tip. 11/14

I had high hopes for this place, even though we rented out the last available cabin and it was quite small (~200 sq. ft) for $140. The setting of the property is beautiful, especially when covered in snow. Where things fell apart was when the 'original' gas furnace quit working at bedtime. Knowing a fair amount about HVAC, I opened... More

I have a daughter that had worked for Susa and Gary, she no longer works for them they are both drunks and don't care about their guest in any way. They leave the storage door open where all the sheets and bedding is and the cats on the property lay all over the clean sheets and so due to that... More

I absolutely loved staying at Giant Oaks. It was clean, quiet, and clearly the owners take pride in their property. I've stayed in many places from Lake Arrowhead to Big Bear and this one, by far, is my favorite. The location is excellent! Running Springs is located in middle of Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear so we were able to... More

I stayed recently at the Giant Oaks Lodge, and while apprehensive at first in what appeared to be a limited option market, my doubts were quickly dispelled. On arrival to the hotel, when I informed the lady at the desk I was suffering a knee injury, she immediately changed my room to a more accessible one so I would not... More
