Went to skiing at Big Bear Lake and needed a place to stay. Decided on staying at Northwoods since it seemed to be the nicest hotel/resort in Big Bear (3 1/2 stars I think...) Anyway, mixed reviews on my stay, however since there are limited options available of nice hotels - would be willing to stay here again. Below are the pros and cons of my stay:
*Was arriving very late at night and the reservation line was willing to provide me with a great deal. Appreciative of how they went above and beyond to accommodate.
*Attached restaurant has great breakfast food with friendly staff
*Within 2 miles of snow summit and within walking distance to the "Village" with lots of shops/restaurants
*Rates are very reasonable
*Overall, clean hotel
*Front desk staff was less than friendly. Indifferent or curt may be a good description...if you had a question, they would barely answer and would not really assist.
*Internet was aweful - not sure if it was just my part of the building, but every 10 minutes, the internet would drop and reconnect - very difficult for working. Also, beware - I could not get my mac to connect
*Hotel needs to be remodeled/repaired. There were water/wet spots on the carpets in the hallways. TV, bathroom, amenities - all could use an update
