I recently stayed at this dump, the cabin I payed for was supposed to be the most updated cabin and it was nothing like the pictures. There were spiders crawling inside the cabin and the carpets in both rooms were extremly dirty. The people in the general store were very rud and it seemed like they were trying to pinch...

There is quite a range in accomodation sizes here--1,2 and 3 Bdr cabins as well as pretty spacious motel rooms. Motel rooms can be booked for just one night anytime, cabins require 2 night minimum on weekends! All are bare bones, no frills rooms--towels and linens are included. They also come wi small fridge and microwave, cabins come wi stoves...

There are extraordinary aspects to this inn. You can stay in an individual “cabin.” You can hike directly therefrom or close by on wonderful trails. You are just a one hour drive from downtown San Diego. The price is very reasonable. The location is rustic. Cabins have small propane stoves and small refrigerators, as well as electricity. You need to...

After reading all the reviews about rude staff, it was with much trepidation that we booked a stay here. However, the owners could not have been more friendly and accommodating with a late cheek-in and help gaining access to WiFi. They are also very knowledgeable about the local area and provided good tips on hikes and the best spots for...

HOWEVER, front desk staff, which are the same as the store clerks, can be CRUSTY and impatient. Definitely not California courtesy. Maybe their strategy is to discourage too many questions and requests. It worked on me.

I called to make a reservation and started with friendly, kind words- "I read all about your lodge online and it looks awesome. I would love to stay there this Friday night if you have availability." The man went on to ask how many were in my party, and I answered "two adults and two small dogs." His response, "Well...

I really love this place! Stayed here many times as a kid and even honeymooned here with my husband! Tried to plan a vacation for my family in order to bring my children to a place that I always loved to visit. However, the maximum occupancy of their largest cabin is 7. I have 6 kids, so we are unable...

I've stayed here several times both in a cabin and in their motel rooms. I proposed to my wife there and have used it as a mountain biking and cross country skiing weekend base. Nothing fancy but they are comfortable and the motel rooms have wood burning stoves/fireplaces. We would bring some microwavable food with us for dinner or eat...

One reviewer lamented on how rude the staff were when making reservations...the important thing to know is that this place is nothing but rustic charm. Its wierd, but no, you cannot reserve a cabin with your credit card unless its the same day - simply, they have no need to go high tech when things work just fine the way...

“If crowded, the hotel rooms can be a bit noisy. Cabins furthest from the road are usually very quiet.”

“If you choose a cabin, try for one that is furthest from the lodge and the road. #8 and #9 are good options in this regard.”
