We stayed here for two (2) nights with family. We had three (3) rooms on the ground floor which worked out great for the grandkids. Playground, volleyball court, horseshoes, pool and spa right outside our door. The rooms were clean with marble countertops. Beds were comfy. The front desk employees were friendly and efficient on both check-in & check-out. It's... More

We've stayed at the Marina Resort many times over the years. You just can't beat it's view of Big Bear Lake, and it's proximity to Big Bear Village. Built in BBQ's, pool, volleyball court, horseshoes. The rooms are nice, though a little worn. Could use a little attention, but still a great property.

Nice and very helpful staff at front desk. Good location for walking to the village and seeing the lake. Nice pool overlooking the lake (at a distance). Room was newly renovated. Lots of easy parking.

Lots of rules, including the 'quiet after 10 pm' rule with a $200 fine. Unfortunately, the wannabe musician didn't read that rule and the thin walls didn't help. Notice in lobby warning that Wifi didn't reach to all rooms but you could come to the lobby. Sorry, I don't really want to keep running to the lobby, especially as their... More

Brian, we appreciate your feedback. We can only enforce the quiet time rule if we are informed of a disturbance. We are glad you were able to receive a strong wifi signal in your room. When that is not the case, we like to let our guests know where they can receive the strongest signal. Thank you for your review. More

The marina resort offered us a view of the big bear lake and mountains. Make sure you get that. The rooms have an electric fireplace which you are likely to always need. In room amenities are minimal. However for stuff like tea and coffee you can go downstairs to the reception to get yourself some. This resort did not have... More

We had booked the condo, was billed for it. Got a call from the hotel saying they had a cease and desist on the condos and moved us to the hotel.

We went up for just two days of snowboarding and a concert at The Cave. We really just needed a place to sleep and if you want to visit the bars in The Village this is a good location as you don't need to use your car. The room was small but clean and in good condition. The front desk... More
