We've stayed here five times in the last few years. It's conveniently located to our family and to all the attractions in Arnold. Every time we stay here I find something else to like about the place. This time it's the complimentary shampoo and conditioner. The bottles are large enough for me to get at least two uses out of...

Located close to the Calaveras Big Trees State Forest this a quaint and convenient place to stay. The Rooms are simple clean and with plenty of fresh towels. There is a little road noise, however this wasn't a problem.

The person at the front desk is unprofessional and rude. She has no people skills, never smiled once and almost bit off my head when I asked if I could check in early (50 minutes). I also ended up in a front room facing the Highway, 4:30am I am awoken by traffic. I would have definately gone elsewhere but I...

Rude doesn't begin to describe the way my friends and I were treated when we arrived to check into this lodge. 1st, the owner couldn't find our reservation and then proceeded to scold us for booking through booking.com. Then, she lectured is about how she has to pay booking.com 20% when we book through them and they aren't even in...

I live in Arnold and last Monday about 9pm I was in the post office when four young folks from Portugal came in looking for a public telephone. They had reservations at the Timberline Lodge and the office was closed. No one was answering the door. I called the lodge for them and twice got no answer. When I came...

Beautifully renovated rooms. Freshly painted. clean bathroom. My only concern was the used condom I found beneath the rocking chair. I did not notice it until the next morning when I opened the shades. Good for safe sex but bsd for housekeeping not seeing it.

It was clean and we were off the main street. So positives it has a frig comfortable bed clean and free wifi and large tv, however to me its overpriced for what you get. Stayed on a Thursday night and it was 126 with tax. No pool hot tub or even continental breakfast.

Lodge was o.k., but bad location. Traffic going by day and night, so noisy if you are a light sleeper. Even ear plugs didn't help. Room was nice, but overpriced for mid week and location. We would have been better off staying Murphys.

Never having stayed off the beaten path, my husband and I were pleasantly surprised with our experience in staying in Room 10 at the Arnold Timberline Lodge (arnoldtimberlinelodge.com). Like many of the reviews, yes, the room was absolutely clean and the beds were fantastic, more on the firm side instead of mushy. We loved this room (non-smoking) with a queen...
