First time to the Rim and just selected this lodge from the internet. The people were friendly. The room was very clean and had hand painted walls, fireplace and jacuzzi tub. They have an indoor pool and spa which is not attached to the rooms. You do have to walk outside to get there. We did not use but it...

Nice people and service! It has a pool my daughters enjoyed very much. Rooms are somehow old, the bathroom extra clean and full of amenities. I personally like arrowhead more, but it was a good experience, you can take your food and make a bbq

The town itself is beautiful, a great place to relax, hike, close to Snow Valley ski resort and it has some very nice views. The room was clean and homy, we had a big Jacuzzi in the bedroom, next to a fireplace and a flatscreen TV. It was amazing. The tub was plenty big for two people with extra space,...

Worked well for our trip to go skiing and avoid Caltrans road control issues. Room was small but nice. Clean and reasonable. Only issue was lack of parking. One car per room is all it holds. The couple running the place and snow removal was very nice Otherwise give it 5 stars except parking

This is the only place in town. The photos on the Running Springs website do not do this property justice. We stayed in one of the Lodge type rooms without a spa. It was very comfortable and very clean. The outdoor landscaping is top notch. It has a stream, pond with live fish and a BBQ / Fireplace area. The...

Caring couple run the place, nice indoor pool with jacuzzi, and ping pong under the crabapple (?) tree made it even more enjoyable. Quiet, right off the main road. Chatting with other guests was nice too.

My husband and I have gone to this lodge at least 3 times within the past few years. It is very CHARMING, quiet, and relaxing. There are little extra touches that Susa has added in the decor, layout, and feel of the lodge. We love the indoor pool/spa with the moon roof and windowed walls. The barbeque with a nearby...

This is not a place to write home about, but does the trick for providing a place to stay in Running Springs. Price was decent and we were only 2 minutes from our family's home and 5 minutes from the "party" site for a family gathering / reunion. We were there for 2 nights - not long enough to look...

I've stayed at Giant Oaks Lodge annually with family and friends for many years now. The cabin-cozy like theme of this hotel is wonderful. The staff is friendly and the location is within walking distance to some really good restaurants and a grocery store. We always enjoy the indoor pool and spa after a day of snowboarding. Its our number...

Wow, we got a beautiful cabin that felt like you were in a Fairy tale from the inside complete with a beautiful stone jacuzzi that spills over into a wonderful fireplace. Minutes from Lake arrowhead and big bear, this small town has all the snow and charm you could ever ask for and it's less than 90 minutes from LA....

“Choose a CABIN! Please! It may be a few dollars more, but just do it! The Jacuzzi, the fireplace the quiet privacy, the swiss alps decor, the kitchenette, the patio, the snow outside - the definition of romance! !!! Be sure to ask the best way to fill up the Jacuzzi to save time !!”
  • One of the best Jacuzzi / Tub experiences in my life. Better then 4 star Vegas Jacuzzi's.
  • Cozy...ohh soo COZY. If only you could see the tall ceiling and huge Alpine windows!
