Double B Lodge
Reviewed November 13, 2011

We found a new place to get away from the heat of Tucson. . . Double B cabins in Pinetop. We were very pleased with the cozy cabin we rented in mid-October. The managers were such gracious hosts and made us feel like family. The cabin was fairly new, and VERY, VERY clean! We enjoyed the porch swing and lovely view of the meadow. Also enjoyed the little fireplace in the cabin, great for a cold morning! Double B was within walking distance to Eddie's market for groceries and lots of restaurants and quaint little shops. We will definitely return there!

Room Tip: We loved cabin #18!

We stayed in Room 8 for two nights in September, 2011. The town was full due to the annual Pinetop Car Show, which was a wonderful event. Our motel was full with car people and their great classic cars. Our friends stayed down the road at a more established place and we visited them at their hotel. After we came back to the Double B, we were glad we chose this place. We stayed in a room versus a cabin, which was rustic but very clean and tidy. The bathroom had recently been remodeled; new tile, toilet and shower head. Towels were thick and nice quality. The showerhead was up high and had good pressure. There is no bathtub but we were okay with that.

The room was large; had a nice open area against a wall for your luggage as well as a small open space to hang your clothes. There was a table with one small chair, plus two nice larger lounge chairs. You also got a small refrigerator (worked great, kept everything cold), a microwave and a coffeepot. Two windows opposite each other opened for wonderful ventilation. The queen bed was better than I expected; it was firm and the bed linens were new and clean.

A boardwalk runs the length of the rooms that is carpeted. Outside of each room are two chairs and a small coffee table so that you can sit outside your room and enjoy the grassy courtyard view. You park your car right outside your door, so easy access all the way around.

We paid less than half of what our friends paid for the "upscale" motel down the road. If we return next year, they will stay with us here at the Double B Lodge. I like value; this was a great value for us and I highly recommend this place for its cleanliness. The couple who manage it were gracious and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We met a group of family friends in Pinetop at the Double B Lodge. In all we had 4 different rooms. One was a double room cabin that was pretty nice, although one of the bedrooms also doubled as the kitchen, dining room, and living room. Two of the rooms were double bed, single room units. One appeared to be updated. It was, however, next to the street, which proved to be very noisy, and it had a broken toilet. The other was not renovated, had old carpet and linoleum and a strange natural gas odor lingered if you used the kitchen range. The fourth room was unit #5, a single bed room. The room had some nice paint, flooring and decorations. It seemed nice, until the first shower was taken. The stand in shower filled up with water within a few minutes. The water appeared to be very dirty and did not drain for at least several hours. The community “hot tub” appeared to be luxurious to a prisoner who might have felt at home within the 10 foot tall chain link fence surrounding it. When we were checking out I asked if there was a discount for not being able to shower. The response was something like, I don’t think so, it has been happening for years. To sum up the experience one of my fellow travelers coined the place, “The Double Baits Motel”.

We've been visiting Pinetop several times a year for the last 10 years, but never stayed at the Double B. Wish I had before, as there are a lot of places that are more expensive, and just not as nice.
We spent 2 nights in the loft unit 14, was very nice. CLEAN (cabin and linens) and comfortable. Before going, I was dismayed by some of the reviews online- however was very happy once we checked in. So happy we booked fall festival. There is privacy and yet it's close in. Charlie Clarks is just up the way and Lotus Garden across the street.
The fireplace will be nice in late Sept as July was a little too warm for a fire. There is also AC in the units, although we didn't need it, even on a 90 degree afternoon. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We didn't have a dog with us, but like alot of places in Pinetop, this is a pet friendly place.
To the reader, this is the white mountains, these are cabins. It is not a 4 star hotel. Not that there is one in Pinetop. I have stayed at several hotels here and they are more expensive for a little room and not more comfortable. What I go for is to relax and enjoy the pines. Although you are right off the main road, you are also by a meadow and it was nice to wake up to the smell of pines.
As I said, we booked again and very much looking forward to our trip.

Room Tip: The one bedroom cabins have porch swings. The lofts are very nice.

Pros: private, good size for couple.
Cons: sofa very uncomfortable, smoke detector went crazy when I fried bacon, bed not very comfy, internet would not work whole time.

Great locale, very inexpensive, would rent again.

I stayed at the Double B Lodge in May of 2011. The furniture looked like it was thirty years old. The mattress was yellow and lumpy. I would not recomend anyone stay there again. They need to spend some money and at least make it feel better.

You cannot beat Double B Lodge for the price. We stayed in room number six and it was elegantly furnished. The shower was hot, room clean, bed soft, and ambience very peaceful and even romantic. The owners are super sweet and helpful people. Definitely the best place to stay in Pinetop Lakeside. Would highly recommend!
