“Great location but tired furniture and decor and needs more thorough cleaning”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2012

Great location and price (special deal second night free). On site manager Dave was very responsive, friendly and helpful. The cabin location and styles are cute but the interiors are looking tired and in need of some attention. Cabin was basically clean but window blinds, ledges, areas between furniture have not been cleaned for a long time.

I work in the hotel industry and they were very wonderful to stay with. Very clean and attentive, as well as a great value for the price.

Thanks for a great weekend!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2010

After reading reviews of lots of other cabin-type hotels/motels in Big Bear, I finally settled on Lakewood Cabins and made a reservation. Lots of travellers had talked about how other cabin motels smelled awful, were cold, had no hot water, were run-down and grungy, etc. Becuase of the proliferation of run down places in Big Bear, I was extra careful to find a place that seemed nice, clean and well-kept.

Lakewood Cabins was all of that and more! Dave S., the manager, was very nice and totally accommodated my late (10:30pm) arrival. He was there to check me in and made sure to share lots of free swag (travel size toiletries and even a ski equipment discount card!) and let me know where grocery stores and eats were nearby.

The cabin itself was super cute--a kitchenette (toaster oven, 1/2 size fridge, microwave, coffee maker, electric kettle, sink, utensils, etc.), a real fire place, a small sitting area with couch and chair, a small table for eating at and a queen size bed. One note: the bed was really firm (my back would say "hard")--I'm used to my squishy pillow top mattress so that was the one thing I would change. If you don't mind firm beds, you'll be fine. If you like squisiher, you might want to bring some extra pillows (although they had a generous supply of pillows).

The heater worked great and kept me toasty. The bathroom was spacious and had plenty of hot water for the shower. The cabin shared no common walls with others, so I had peace and quiet. Plus, the cabins are located right off the main Big Bear Blvd drag, so you are right close to the action but hear no street noise. Then in the morning, I rolled out of bed, into my car (I parked right in front of the cabin) and was at Snow Summit in about two minutes.

My cabin was really cute, clean, well-cared-for and looked like it had been recently rennovated. The property had picnic tables, a BBQ and a small play area. And all cabins have free wi-fi, not bad! I would totally stay there again and recommend it without reservation! (My only wish list item would be the ability to have a foam mattress topper added to the bed to make it a bit softer.)

Very clean well kept rooms. Seems like it was just newly renovated and remodeled. Great place for the price, the groundskeeper is very nice. He was extremely helpful with anything and was very easy on us leaving late.
I've stayed in Big Bear cabins before, and they are normally pretty old and stinky, but this one seems very nice and well kept. Great experience, we would do it all again!

We've stayed in many cabins, and these were roomy, clean, and the service was great. We would highly recommend these for travelers to Big Bear Lake
