Visiting our cabin in Big Bear Lake, as it is being worked on to restore it to original form. Always enjoy the shopping, food and night life. Making it a better place for my grandchildren and children.

This location is perfectly located in Village just a short walk away from bars, restaurants, and attractions. Staff is friendly. Also, it is a short drive (less than 10 minutes) to the nearest ski resorts. Also, the hotel has a trolley that is only $5 that will take you to nearby attractions like Bear Mountain, Snow Summit, etc. Things you...

Great location hotel! At the main entrance of "The Village" rooms are nice, oudoor pool and jacuzzi, parking lot and room service. We stayed with our IHG points and i think it was a good option. Good decoration and great service.

The hotel had a rustic feel and thin walled rooms. We loved being within walking distance to the "city center". The opening times of the bar and restaurant could be extended, but only with an improvement of friendliness of the staff. Two guys were not up to the standard of the rest of the team. Summer in Big Bear -...

Got a Groupon deal at The Lodge. Have never been to Big Bear. It was a very good deal. 2 nights with breakfast for $129. Hotel was adequate. Breakfast was adequate. The area was fun to explore for 2 days.
