Basic motel, they have pretty good channels though. We came here for a quick little getaway with our dogs, customer service was nice and the lake is about 4 minute drive. No complaints from us we enjoyed it.

I feel people need to be warned about the OBSCENE noise levels at this property. The room is fine, clean, and a good value for the area. However, I was woken up on a Sunday morning at 4AM from what sounded like a vacuum cleaner operating in my room. I called front desk and learned that the snowplay area immediately... More

Your general basic motel, inexpensive but nicely kept. Great location with access to the bike path around the lake and easy access to the back highway for quick escape from the mountain traffic leaving on a weekend. The amenities are good with a nice lobby with vending. We went in the summer and the pool was not working due to... More

I booked this motel last minute one night for a unplanned fun get away with our dog. The next morning plans changed and the trip had to be cancelled. The Expedia app would not let me cancel online, however the app said I could still cancel same day. So I called the motel directly, was greeted by pleasant waiting music,... More

This is definitely a 2 star hotel, knew this when we booked but it was last minute and all that was available. It was clean, there were no amenities in the room. No shampoo, conditioner, tissues, or coffee. They did have coffee available in the office where you checked in. The towels were the worst part, they were like shop... More

The property was decent enough but I will not be going back. Very dog friendly with lots of nice green grass for bathroom breaks however, many guests did not pick up after their dogs. The room was basic and clean except for the sheets. I was appalled when I saw the stained sheets. Did no one notice? Serious quality control... More

The last time we stayed here, in 2008, my review was 5-star. Unfortunately, this week's experience was very different. If I were rating only the staff, and their positive and friendly attitude toward customer service, it would be stellar. They are stand-out employees, in a very difficult industry. The negatives this time however, outweighed the positives to the extent that... More

Worst experience I've ever had. Checked into room on 7/9 around 5, left and came back around 11 only to find NO PARKING space at all. Went into the office and asked what to do. The woman working basically didn't care and said it wasn't their problem. There were other people there as well and all of us looking at... More

I made a solo overnight trip to Big Bear the last weekend in June. The Motel 6 was the best price I could find, so since I was alone I thought I would try it. The grounds and outer buildings are about what you would expect from a budget motel. However when I entered the room, it appeared to have... More
