Apple Valley, California
Reviewed 1 week ago

We have stayed here many times. The property sits right on the waterfront, You walk out your front door right on the sand and go wading. They also have playground equipment and two-person swing to relax on. Right on the edge of the property there is access to the pier, boat rentals and water skiing and parasailing.. Quiet and relaxing.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 February 2017 via mobile

Right down from the Village and a gorgeous view of the lake-perfect location because it backs up to Big Bear lake. Very nice rooms from king beds to 2 queens to family suites. Price is awesome, staff is so nice, and you never have to move your car if your going into the village. About 5 minutes away from snow...

We love this place. Quaint, rustic, woodsy rooms. Ours had a view of the lake. Waking up to that view was just rejuvenating. There was a cute fireplace in the room that also served as the heater. There was also a refrigerator to store our drinks and dining left overs (but no microwave in the room....have to use the one...

Conveniently located, small but cozy and clean rooms, all facing the lake. Nothing luxurious. No breakfast, but water and coffee all day at the reception Would stay there again! My kids and i loved it.

We didn't expect a good hotel to be available in Big Bear, but this hotel is nice. Interior is clean and fairly updated. The staff seems to be transitioning from new directive so I do see some inefficiency. The restaurant still needed work to provide quality service as we waited over hour and half before our food was ready. If...

Literally the worst mattress I've ever slept on! Weekend lady at front seat was super rude. We called the front desk 3 times to complain about loud noises and extremely loud guests in the room on top of ours and they did nothing about it. The view was beautiful but that's about the only positive thing I can say about...
