Reviewed November 28, 2004

We were having trouble finding a place in Big Bear that did not have a min. stay required, and also allowed pets. This was the only place we could find, so we booked it.

The location was great, as was the price of $95 per night. It's minutes from town and from the lake, but I would not recommend this motel. The sliding glass doors were difficult to opperate, and I did not feel secure sleeping at night. The room did not feel very clean. It smelled of cat, and the sheets were pilly and quite dreadful.

It's not the worst place I've seen, and in a pinch, is okay for a cheap place to stay... But, you can probably do better...

I stayed here one night at the begining of november...this motel (it has cabins too) was much better then i expected! i stayed in a motel room, it was spacious, had an adorable cozy gas fireplace, nice bathroom with great shower. it was just blocks from both the montains. my only complaints were no shades to block out sunlight and bight light at night on windows, and there was a plastic cover over matress which made lots of noise and pillows were not the best!! i only payed $49 for the room (monday night) so i was willing to overlook some of these problems!! (it would be another story if i pay a lot...) overall, great extremely COZY motel that looked better than any other motel in town. and if you're looking for a fantastic american restaurant to eat dinner at Cowboys was exellent (steaks at potatoes). definally worth a try!!!
