I also stayed here one night during the week. The rate was excellent and if you are a senior the discount equals the hotel sales tax. This property is really charming. Even the lobby is lovely. There are delightful little cabins and the place, while on Highway 18, is quiet yet close to the Village. Rita, the owner, with the...

This was a very nice place & friendly. Over all it was good they just to pay attention to detail to cleaning and the amenities fix plumbing carpet and wifi needs to be batter. We would stay there again if we go back to Big Bear.

We are a family of 5 with 2 dogs. Black Forest Lodge was so accommodating and took us at the last second. The staff was beyond friendly and we enjoyed every second in this cute hotel. We will definitely be coming back here! I saw complaints about spiders on this site, but honestly we are in the forest, regardless we...

Couldn't sleep on the terrible mattress. When I called the front desk to let them know and to see if we could change rooms, they hung up on me! This was a very low brow experience. Do not recommend. We thought we were in for a treat because the front is so cute. We were wrong.

Hello, Just to make something clear, no one hung up on you! That is a blatant lie! We would have been more then happy to change rooms with a hard, med or soft mattress. As for the location we are 2 blocks from the lake and the main village. Our rates are very competitive with our town and less then...

We have just got back from a long weekend in Big Bear at the Black Forest Lodge. We booked it under a groupon deal and didn't have high expectations after reading some of their reviews, but we were very pleasantly surprised. We had 'Gordon Chalet B' - a double queen bed room. My husband, two children, lab/retriever dog and I...

Not at all what it looks like in pics. Really cute from the street. We reserved a cabin on line and were told that the system gave us an unusually low rate when we got there. I was really looking forward to one of the nice cabins with fireplace and jacuzzi tub.They gave us a key to a cabin (Zippy)...

Just got back from spending Mother's Day weekend at this lodge. I booked through their website and had initially reserved one of the jacuzzi/fireplace suites. To be honest, I was really not pleased with the room in which we were placed at first (#49). The bed was way too high (not easy for older folks) and the black and grey...

The cabins are 35 years old, but they are trying to keep them updated. Kitchens well stocked. They real thermostat so no constant adjustment of heater. A bathroom door may not close just right because of swelling, etc. Queen bed was against one wall which created some acrobatics. Room did have a Jacuzzi tub however not utilized.

We tried everything to accomodate this customer and her husband. She checked in to our lodge on December 31st and complained that there was too much noise from the street so we moved her and her husband to the rear of the property. The next day this customer complained again and we offered to give her credit to come back...
