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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

The staff was friendly and nice. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The Inn is close to the village and the lake. It was quiet and relaxing and it was nice to be able to sit outside the room on a nice patio and feel the breeze.

We have been to this location twice each time the room was wonderful. It is located across the street from Lake Arrowhead Village that has shopping, restaurants, boating, fishing, free summer concerts. The property has breakfast included and a great restaurant and bar with karaoke two times a week. It is a mountain lake resort great for the whole family.
