We booked the lake front view room 2 weeks up front. When we arrived, they swipes our credit card and gave us the keys. When we figured that they gave us this disgusting room with an odd smell, but no lake view at all, we went back to them. They said that they ran out of the lake view room....

Stayed one night in a room without a view. Room suffered from noise from room above. Room was very tired. Clearly patched up. Door to bathroom didn't shut properly, hinges needed tightening. Face fannel provided was stained. Sheets on the bed were threadbare.see photo. Photos indicate the lodge is right on the lakeside but due to the drought the water's...

I am so sorry for the experience you had here at our lodge. We are currently upgrading the lodge this year. The lake levels will continue to be at an all time low until we experience the rain we need. Winter is around the corner, I am hoping you will give us the opportunity to make your stay a better...

Hadn't been to Big Bear before but have wanted to see it. Was with some friends in San Diego who had been here and raved about the area and this one particular hotel. Unfortunately they were thinking of a different hotel with a similar name. Based on that, I went on line to book two rooms for one night. My...

We visited for July 4th weekend and the staff were very friendly and helpful and the lodge was a perfect place to view the fireworks but the lodge is in need of a great deal of TLC. The rooms are in need of updating with no a/c, threadbare sheets, old badly tuned in TV, the beds were so hard it...

I am so glad you were able to spend forth of July with us. It is one of the best times of the year! We are currently working on upgrades to the lodge. In Big Bear it is a constant battle to keep wood and paint in great shape, as the weather is very harsh most of the year. Please...

I stayed only for one night, I paid 100 bucks and I honestly don't think it's worth more than that. Well not for the standard room . The kitchenette is just a microwave and mini fridge. Everything worked just fine no complaints. Oh! Bring an extra blanket because it gets cold at night

I booked this hotel hoping for a great stay on the lake and I got everything but that. Booked a suite with a kitchen. Got to the room and it sounded like 10 people were jumping up and down on ceiling above us. We asked to be moved so we could get some sleep. We were moved to a smaller...

Stayed at the Big Bear Lake Front Lodge for the Presidents Day Holiday weekend and we were greeted by a friendly front desk staffer who was very pleasant to deal with. Although the rooms were a little small and could use an update, ours was fairly clean. We also had a great view of the lake that was awesome to...

We stayed for two nights last week. We were on the first floor, which was a big mistake. There is little, to no insulation in the walls, so it was very noisy in our room from the neighbors above us and beside us. The heater and refrigerator were very noisy, the mattress needs to be replaced, the t.v.needs to be...

Paid for a room with the kitchen, but appliances were not working and room had only one fork. This is a motel style accommodations with five start prices. Rooms are ok is size, but walls are paper thin, We heard people running around on top of us and showers and sinks, even taking in rooms next to us.
