After getting rather fed up with the various booking sites that say "$100 per night!" and then tack on fee after fee after fee effectively making the nightly fee more than double that advertised, I decided to look this place up again. We stayed before and were happy then - and were happy this time too. This place has a nightly rate, clearly advertised, and then just the standard state/local tax on top of that - no surprises. We stayed in Cabin 7 this time, pretty much in the center of the property. Max welcomed us, ensured we had everything we needed, and was helpful throughout our stay. I'm not sure I remember the lady on the front desk - I think it was Maria? - anyway, she was great too. I noticed some reviews mentioned noise from the road. Well, what do you expect?! Move the road or the resort?! Honestly, some people expect way too much. If you want somewhere quiet, look on a MAP to see where it is! Don't expect five star luxury because this isn't it. What it is is a moderately priced location with decent facilities and close to the action. Well recommended.

We have stayed at timerberline many times and always enjoy our stay. This is a quaint lodge that offers basic and affordable accommodations if you're going to be spending your time and money on visiting other big bear sites. While having a nice bbq outside, someone from timberline came out and helped us start the fire and they have helped us out with many other things in the past as well. They're also very dog friendly!

We were given a cabin next to the busiest street in town(#15). When we started moving in-we could already hear the loud,consistenr street noise. When we asked for a quieter location-the office man said $30 more because(he said) we had booked thru a bookingwebsite. Stuck, we entered again to find dirty carpet, broken blinds, peeling paint and caulk in the bath and trash that had been frozen in the entry to the cabin. The next morning we discovered the coffeemaker was broken-so I had to dress and go to Starbucks. A call and visit to the office-noone there!!

I normally don't do reviews but future travellers please be fore warned. Problems 1. Bed sheets were stained n appeared used. 2. Towels were damped ? 3, window blinds not working. 4. Walls in bathroom had holes. Tried calling the front desk about 6.15 and no one answered the call. TV had only one channel working. Only thing is that they had working Wi-Fi. I don't understand how some reviews gave the 4 stars. I wanted to give it a one star but somehow the web page is stuck at two stars.

We were told check in time is 4pm. My understanding of that is I can check in any time after 4pm. At 5.15pm I was half way down a hiking trail and I got a call asking where were we and when can we get here to check in. As it turned out, we were close and got to the cabin before 6pm. There was no one at the front lobby. The key was left in the door. Cabin was OLD, GRUNGY and unsafe in my opinion. The dishes were so dirty I didn't want to use any of them. The water came out of the cold water tap BROWN. Yes, BROWN. Check out time is 11am. My understanding using my experience is that we need to check out before 11am. Not here. We were ready to leave by 8.45am (yes, couldn't wait to leave) but there was no one in the office. Because there was no one there to check us in either we called and were told they would be there by 10am to check us out and sign the credit card slip. We drove into town, had breakfast then drove back to check out on their schedule. Crazy!!! I'd never stay there again, the entire place looked like it's falling down, it's right off the main road and it's noisy, hard to turn into and out of and the parking spots on the site are all tiny. Do yourself a favor and stay elsewhere! Cabin #6.
