Pros: We loved the little small touches the make the big difference like the bow on the tissue you box.
The wooden finish
The cute wall paper that finishes the room perfectly
The friendly management
Pros: place was nice relaxing and clean! had all the cooking utensils I needed, big extra!! place is outside of downtown but not too far so it felt like I was in the woods. lots of trees. bakery, brewery, Mexican food, small grocery store and hiking trail, all walking distance. staff was super nice.
Pros: The place was very clean and the staff was friendly and helpfull.
Cons: The queen bed was more like a full.
Pros: Excellent lodging with thoughtful details everywhere. We stayed in cabin 5. Had everything we needed, wood burning fire, comfy bed, well stocked kitchen, privacy, BBQ, great staff, tv, DVD, movies, patios., parking, close to all. Shower needed bit of updating but that was it. Get a cabin if you can afford to do so, privacy was really nice!
Cons: Shower could use a little update.

Pros: The owner was very nice and very accomdating.
Pros: We loved everything about Timber Haven! Hotel Employee was so warm, welcoming and accommodating! Cabin 7 was perfect for our family of 6 and we loved the outdoor eating area, play structure and the paddle ball. Breakfast was perfect--nice to take back to
Cons: If we have to say something, we wished there were screens on a few windows so we could cool down the cabin without adding some friendly bugs but that is so minor :)
Pros: The lodge was a perfect retreat for us this past weekend. It was quiet and cozy, and and the owner was delightful. I really couldn't ask for more, and we will definitely be back soon.

Pros: We loved how close this cabin was to the village, literally, right around a bend! The room had a lot of character and was definitely cozy once you got the furnace and fire place going. The kitchenette was a MUST, we saved trips, money and time from bringing our own groceries. We selected the cabin with the Jacuzzi tub, which was relaxing.
Cons: The room was a bit dark, hard to look for things you may have dropped around the room. There was a lot of "signs/rules" explaining what is required of the guests, including cleaning your own silverware or a cleaning fee will be charged. A daily cleaning of your room from housekeeping was not provided, nor were the towels changed- unless requested. When checking out, make sure to have your cabin cleaned.
Pros: Very romantic, cozy and comfortable room. Will go there again!
Pros: We enjoyed our stay here at the cozy lodge it was beautiful to have the snow fall while we were staying there. The room was nice and cozy for us and felt very relaxing. The room was big enough for the two of us.

Pros: Cozy. Near attractions of Big Bear Lake. In a quiet area.
Cons: Very old school rooms. Everything small in the room. (Tv, heater, bathroom, and etc.
Cons: Staff has bad attitude. They don't clean the guests room until your stay is over. You have to pick up anything you need from the office, they will not bring it to your room. Towels and sheets are too used and in bad condition. Charged us extra for the kids. Too much noise. No good ventilation in the rooms. Accused us of taking some of their towels and said they will charge us for their beat up towels.wont stay here again
When you stay at Honey Bear Lodge & Cabins, you'll be within a 10-minute drive of Snow Summit. Free perks include WiFi and self parking. Rooms feature conveniences like refrigerators and microwaves.
Pros: The location was perfect -it was a very quick and easy drive to Snow Summit! We stayed in the Juniper Room and it had a little electric fireplace, which kept the room nice and warm. No matter what room you have you are in one of the couple cabins on the property, which is a nice change of pace in comparison to a standard hotel. Also, the man that we checked in with was very sweet and helpful.
Cons: The Juniper room was very, very small. Just big enough for a bed, tv, small bench (for clothes?), and a bathroom. There is a small rack to hang some clothes, out of the way of your living space, but no drawers. The only way to control the temp in the room was by playing around with the ceiling fan and the electric fireplace, but we made it work. Also, the light breakfast that was included wasn't served until 8 am. This was a little odd seeing that people could be there to ski/snowboard and the mountain opens at 8:30 am. Unfortunately, we couldn't take advantage of the included breakfast. Overall, it was a cozy room and we didn't need much for our two night stay, so it worked out well! We would stay there again!
Pros: The Knickerbocker Mansion is an ideal place to stay in Big Bear! I had never been to Big Bear before, and the mansion's cabin atmosphere surrounded by beautiful trees and snow couldn't have been more perfect. The owners and staff were very welcoming and helpful and made sure all our needs were meant. We loved the cozy cabin feel and beautiful views from our room. Great breakfast, and conveniently located just a few minutes from ski rentals and the slopes. I highly recommend it.
Pros: Mostly everything!
Cons: The bed wasn't very good in the Willow room.
Pros: Loved the friendly, welcoming atmosphere of this B&B, the fascinating history of this century-old mansion, and the proximity to the ski slopes. Also the included breakfasts were gourmet and delicious!
Cons: WiFi was unreliable.
Pros: When we visited in October 2014, the new owners had just been there six months. They had added new carpet to all the rooms, and repaired or upgraded many aspects of all the rooms.
This is a very "rustic" type hotel, but still very nice.
The owners are very involved and interactive. You see them every morning at the (included) breakfast and are happy to help with any part of your trip.
When we arrived, somewhat late on Friday, one of the owners actually walked us to our room and carried my wife's luggage.
You just don't see this everywhere, even in Big Bear.
It's a bargain of a price, especially considering they include a really nice breakfast.

Pros: LOVED the location, rate, very clean room, and incredible customer service.

Pros: Great location, clean accommodations.
Cons: Bed was uncomfortable.
Pros: Loved this place!!
Cons: The only bad thing was the bed in our room was hard as a rock. But we still loved the room!

Pros: Close to town. Location
Cons: Bit dated, flat pillows.
Pros: The price was very affordable. Shower was very nice and the fact that it was off of Pine Knot so you didn't have to drive to go to the shops or eat.
Cons: The bedding was very old and "stale" feeling. Bed was also itchy.(no bed bugs though!) there were ants in the bathroom crawling around the sink.
Pros: Locale is great
Rooms are worn but cleanish

One of my fav places in big bear when prices are cheap
Pros: Very friendly staff, great location. Older, refurbished rooms were very well appointed and clean. Would definately stay again.

It was perfect for a quick one night stay which we did some hiking ( castle rock) , nice dinner at The Pines, sledding the next morning followed by walking around the village which was my favorite!
Cons: Was a little off the beaten path unless u want to be close to bear mountain.

Pros: It's convenient located, it has a nice arquitecture. The breakfast is complete and the persons very warm. the shower and the water temperature.
Cons: too much escalators, ceiling too low, with central heating, you can't control the temperature. I have two rooms (one on the Jacuzzi level is cold and one on the second floor is too hot).
Cons: There was someone in the room they gave us.
The food wasn't very good.
Pros: Very close to Bear Mountain.
Lovely holiday decorations in the lobby.
Big, comfy bed.
Cons: Check in at 4pm.
Whole place has old lady, perfume scent.
Shower didnt drain properly.
Dining area too crowded and understaffed. Very likely you won't get any breakfast.
Pros: Staff was nice, the rooms were spacious and clean. Also the rooms were very quiet and it was easy to fall asleep. The room had a gas fireplace which was a nice surprise. The included morning breakfast was good, great selection and the service was good.
Cons: The only negative was the bed was very very firm bordering on hard
Pros: The rooms are compfy, staff at breakfast very friendly, breakfast included
Cons: Women at frontdesk are not very friendly or welcoming. The hotel in the inside looks aweful, gody, outdated, okd fashioned, almost creepy with big chinese vases and tons of tacky chandaliers, horrible paint job......frightening
Pros: I vacation Big Bear approximately 10 times a year and Best Western had somewhat decent price at the time. PLEASE, don't let that fool you. Nothing good about this place. For the most part it looked as if housekeeping is doing their job.
Cons: When I checked in they couldn't find my reservation which was fine. After 30 min they finally locate it under a different name which was odd. Management (lady with an accent) at the front desk was very unfriendly and told me that NOT maybe but " I made a reservation elsewhere " they put us in a room where the fire place wasn't working and the wall boarders was basically coming off the wall which was a hazard for my toddler. The heater is controlled by hotel, basically a switch you have to shut on and off very often. At check out they told me there was a charge which I shouldnt have had any, AGAIN I was a different person in there books, very odd. I waited about 30 min before they figured it out. Much better hotels out there. Trust me! Spend that extra $5-$10.

Pros: Nice kitchen facilities in the suite with microwave, stovetop and fridge. Good location.
Cons: Customer service was lacking. The front office staff made us feel like they were doing us a favor when helping us or even checking us in. There's even a sign up at the front that says something to the effect that they charge extra for bad attitudes. They didn't greet us warmly, and I even had to ask if they worked there, and they had no nametags or uniforms. They did respond and get someone to our room when we had some issues (lamp was missing a knob, there were crumbs on the sofa bed showing that the fitted sheet wasn't changed, the toilet seat was loose) and were courteous. In terms of the room, the carpet was old (they said they were planning on changing it), the bathroom facilities were very basic and old, the sofa bed is not at all comfortable despite being new (you can feel the springs), and the housekeeping staff made it abundantly clear that they do NOT clean the rooms (unless you request that they vaccuum, which we did), but that they simply make the bed if necessary and change towels. Overall, I would compare this to an old Motel 6. I would not pick this inn again--I'd upgrade to a hotel.
Pros: Great location
Cons: Rude staff
Pros: clean and roomy, comfy beds, near restaurants and stores. open field next to hotel full of snow for kids to play
Pros: Peaceful, quiet, friendly staff. Good location, view of lake! Close to all restaurants.
Pros: The staff was friendly and the rooms were very clean.
Cons: The ice machine was in the office and it closed at night. No fridge so bring a cooler.
Pros: Close to village and lake, plush clean carpet, big bathroom and closet space, flat screen tv, fireplace, wide open space right across the parking lot where we were able to play in the snow. Loved it! Will definitely return and recommend!
Cons: No microwave or fridge :( pillows a little uncomfortable. even though we were one of maybe 4 occupied rooms and we were leaving on a Tuesday, they still called at 11 to remind us of check out. It's not actually a negative I guess - they were nice about it and 11 IS the listed check out time but I will always give bonus points to a place that gives free late check out!
Pros: down to earth
Cons: Staff seemed to be unfriendly.
Pros: Quiet and they allow dogs.
Cons: A little shabby. Old TV.
Pros: The room was very cozy and neat. The location was really close to the village.
Cons: It would be nice if they had a mini fridge with complimentary water. The tv was small
Vintage Lakeside Inn puts you just a 5-minute drive from Snow Summit. Freebies like WiFi and self parking are added perks, and guests looking to stay active can check out the nearby hiking/biking trails, kayaking, and mountain biking.
Pros: It was a very nice, private room that was close enough to most everything it's within walking distance. The man who came to check us in was very nice, seemed willing to make most anything happen to make us more comfortable.
Cons: Definitely recommend you bring your own pillow and possibly top sheet. The beds are "European style" meaning there's two smaller, rectangular comforters and no top sheet. Not bad, just a recommendation. One thing they don't tell you on here is you have to wait for the guy to show up at the location since there's no front desk on-site. But it was very easy to coordinate. Just plan to be there around the exact check-in time, or a little later.
Pros: Room was very clean. Nice modern decor. Great location, close to the slopes and village area. Dave was great. Will definitely stay there again next time I go to Big Bear.
Lindberg Suites puts you just a 5-minute drive from Snow Summit. Guests can grab a bite to eat at the coffee shop/café, and the spa tub makes for a relaxing end to the day. Apartments are done up right with upscale touches like private spa tubs, fireplaces, and jetted tubs.
Pros: The view of the lake from the room was AWESOME. The BBQ's (but not enough and location could of been better). The Jacuzzi was nice but could of been a bit warmer.
Cons: House keeping was kinda of lackadaisical. And the mattress was horribly uncomfortable.
Pros: Comfortable and close to the mountain for skiing. They did have a hot tub, which would have been nice after skiing, but the snow basically made it inaccessible.
Pros: It was very clean, cozy and the view was amazing!
Cons: Don't ever take room 214...next to linen room...wake up call at 5am and so much noise you can't go back to sleep.
Pros: Easy to find. Volleyball net available. Patio furniture included.
Cons: Furniture bulky. Felt cramped although there was enough room. Old fashioned heater. Volleyballs all needed air. Jacuzzi was dirty.
Pros: The view and the coziness, loved the fire place.
Cons: The bathroom was too small and there was no microwave.
Pros: Location and view
Cons: No restaurant/ bar or laundry
Pros: Pro: Perfect location, great views, fun sledding right on-site, comfortable beds, nice gas fire place, mini fridge.
Cons: Con: Holes in wall, interior/finish show age, ripped towels, jacuzzi needed cleaning (a ton of sand/dirt), shower was like 4" off the tub...
Pros: Good location. Eventually got a semi-decent room.
Cons: First room we were given was absolutely disgusting. No molding between carpets and wall. Filthy floor. Walls looked dirty. The excuse was that it "hadn't been renovated yet". It was a disaster.
They moved us to another room downstairs which was better (not great), but we had to settle for two queen beds instead of the one king we booked.
Staff lacks a customer service orientation. Not rude, but not friendly either. They gave the horrible room to someone else straight away.
We will probably not return, even though the location is very good.
Pros: The finishing touches were excellent. Excellent remodeled bathroom.
Room was comfortable.
Cons: No WiFi
Pros: live the location to the lake , room was clean and close to bear valley village.
Cons: I didn't like being woken up early on my birthday because of construction
Pros: The hotel was beautiful and very clean. Our room was at Forest Shores next door. We enjoyed the kitchenette that was full of dishes and silverware to use. The rest of the room was very cozy and intimate. The blankets were soft and very thick for the colder nights.
Cons: We had a lake facing room in the Forest Shores portion but we were a little confused on how to get in, only to realize that the sliding glass door was the only entrance. The room was described as having a jacuzzi/shower combo but was disappointed that it was no bigger than a standard shower tub.
Located just a 5-minute drive from Snow Summit, Marina Resort puts you near winter activities like downhill skiing and snowboarding. The spa tub makes for a relaxing end to a day on the slopes, and freebies like WiFi and self parking are great perks. An outdoor pool and a seasonal outdoor pool are other highlights, and rooms offer furnished balconies or patios and flat-screen TVs.
Cons: The desk at check in stated the A/C was not working but that if we opened the window we would be just fine. What he failed to mention is that not only was the A/C broken, but they had the heat blasting in the hallways and our tiny 4th floor window only opened about 1". when we got into the room around 9pm it was about 80 degrees and never cooled down. We were too tired to request a room change. In the future we will request a room with a sliding glass door so in the event the A/C is broken again we can at least open the door to let some fresh air in.
