Wanted a inexpensive clean hotel near big bear. We found the ABVi Calamesa and were very pleased. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and the location was great. Would definitely stay here again

We were looking for a place near Forest Hills, south of Big Bear, and came across this hotel. It was easy to find, quick to check in and out, not fancy, but very adequate. The room was large and clean, with a desk, TV, free wi-fi, and a very comfortable bed. Even though we were close to Interstate 10, freeway...

Stopped in Calimesa to look for a cheap but clean hotel to spend a few hours of sleep and then continue on our road trip. I saw the small hotel, in a kind of deserted area, so I was afraid it wouldn't be what I wanted. To my surprise, the room was big, the sheets and bath towels were all...

I was not impressed with this place. It seemed ordinary and a bit disappointing. The room was functional but lacked warmth or character. I felt a little disappointed with the quality of the inn and would not return here.

This is pretty much what I expected. Nothing fancy, but nice and functional. I would say that if you've stayed at a Super 8 before, or a Motel 6, it's about the same. Found a parking space right away and there were plenty of spots (on a Sunday night). It was simple to check in, (I booked in advance), the...

The wife and I stayed here for 9 days. We were visiting famaly in Calimesa but also doing day trips. It is close to the freeway. We were 1 hour from the ocean, Palm Springs and the mountains. The rooms were very clean and were cleanned every day.

This was a 'too good to be true.'. Based on several evals we read (sadly we missed the one about the gentleman offered entertainment) we chose to spend the night on our trip to AZ. The room was in disrepair. One chair had a rip on the side and the blanket was missing parts of the binding. The room was...

I was in my room no longer then about 5 minutes and had a knock on the door. I answered it and it was a man (I am a man also) offering oral sex. I immediately slammed the door in his face. This is a fine place to stay with okay accommodations but do not answer the door. The advertised...

Our daughter living in the area had surgery and I needed a place to stay for a week. The AAA rate was easy on the budget. It was clean, felt safe, and had all I really needed. The Wi-fi was very handy. The microwave and fridge (no freezer compartment) allowed me to have some meals in my room. TV had...

The reason I gave this motel a poor instead of terrible rating was that it WAS clean. I had read the favorable reviews and ended up booking 2 nights at this motel because it was close to family members I was visiting in Yucaipa. I had thought of staying in Redlands, which has more motel choices but is farther away,...
