It was foggy while we driving in the mountain/cliff area. Kinda scary because we could only see about 10m ahead. It got better when we were actually there. When we got to the saddleback it had a very homey feel to it. The people were friendly and the room was nice. We took a king sized and another mattress on...

Came December 16-18 with hubby and 8 month old son. Stayed in room 29. Location: right off the main road. Easy walking distance to the village and lake which we did do. Roads were icy from a previous storm but the hotel was not bad. All steps were salted and the parking lot scraped. There is also a 7-Eleven right...

We stayed in the Lucky Lindy and it was a fantastic room! However, be aware if you're booking for a Friday night, as they do karaoke until midnight right under the room. Upon check in, we were told that this information was provided upon books, but it was nowhere to be seen. Despite this, it is a lovely room. If...

My husband & I went up on a Sunday and stayed the night. We love the location and have stayed here 4xs in the past few years. Comfortable and clean rooms with cozy fireplaces, spa tubs, in a wooded setting. A racoon came to visit us that night & observed us from the roof. Fun! The restaurant has delicious food...

This place was pretty cool. It is really an old main Lodge-type building nestled in a rambling complex of cabins. It feels charming and rustic. The accommodations are ok but not first-class. The complimentary breakfast was so-so. There is a neat, old bar in the main building, which hosts a Karaoke night on Friday. This was actually the favorite part...

A very friendly and helpful front desk staff welcomed us to our Labor Day weekend stay at the charmingly rustic Saddleback Inn. Our upstairs cabin room had a king bed and a jacuzzi tub. We had a lovely view of the trees and the rest of the property. I didn't make use of the jacuzzi because of the drought, but...

The location of the Saddleback Inn is wonderful on the main road into Lake Arrowhead Village, easy walk or drive to village.It is an historic site being over 100 years old. The choice of rooms are either in the main building or separate cabins winding up the hill from the main building. There is a super restaurant, Diane's, along with...

We chose this Hotel by chance and were very happy with the outcome. The hotel is less than a block from Lake Arrowhead Village. The hotel and surrounding area was quiet and peaceful. The staff was eager to help and very efficient. Our room was a small cottage. At first it seemed a bit too small but it was clean...

Love this place. It was build in 1917 and renovated--probably in the 90s. The stairs are steep and I saw no elevator. The staff is lovely, so friendly and helpful. When we arrived, our granddaughter was a little car sick so the kind woman at the desk immediately got her some soda and directed her to stand on the AC...
