“Exceptional Stay”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, room was spacious and well equipped. The dinner at Nottingham's was delicious (try the Lobster Gratinee). I was very pleased with the room and highly recommend them. Directly adjacent to the Village and the Lake. The location couldn't have been more perfect.

After passing this place for years and never really paying attention, I was forced to take a look when the hotel I was booked at for the weekend had no hot water and I had my puppy with me. Checked out RobinHood Resort and the check in clerk at the front desk could not have been any more accommodating. I got a very reasonably priced room with hot water and they loved my dog!
The best part about this place is the location which is now directly across the street from Chad's (new location) and its at the entrance to The Village. Walk to everything, park the cat and leave it! I was also very pleasantly surprised to note the Nottinghams Tavern is located in the same building. The food is EXCELLENT, but that's in another review.
Convenience is an understatement to describe Robinhood Resort and it is followed by friendly and accomdating. They had fresh coffee and muffins available all day in the lobby.
I would definitely stay again. The owner owns 7 places, several in the same area. Rooms and rates vary by which property you stay at.
They let me book Saturday only on the last weekend of Octoberfest. Great employees!

Room Tip: Owner has 7 properties so explain what you are looking for to be reserved in proper resort.

I called 2 days prior to needing a Saturday night only stay over the Labor Day weekend. They were very accommodating and worked with me on a decently priced room for the night. We hadn't stayed with them since the late 90's, but they gave us a discount as a return visitor anyway. They were very nice and kind and we enjoyed our stay in Big Bear because of their hospitality.

As always we make every attempt to respond to our guests particular requests and requirements.

We train our staff to be as accommodating as possible for our new arrivals and especially our repeat guests.

We look forward to seeing you in the future.

We stayed here for one night in September. The Robinhood 'Resort' seems to have expanded to include nearby hotels, so there are 3 separate buildings with various levels of comfort. We stayed at the Wishing Well, and 'wished' we would have booked 'well' in advanced so we could have stayed in one of the other buildings. This section is old and could use some upgrades. How long has it been since you have seen a toilet in avocado? The walls had cracks and the paint was peeling. The floor in the bathroom had a slope. The shower was very large and echoed every sound in the bathroom. The knobs were all backwards and it took a minute to get a comfortable temperature. The bed was a double. This was possibly the only weekend in Big Bear when we would appreciate air conditioning, but the room had none. We slept with the window open and the fan on, but the good location is also popular with motorcyclists, who get up earlier than we do. There is a good restaurant on site called Nottingham's Tavern, and they gave us a 10% discount since we stayed there. The location is close to the main shops and Jasper's BBQ is nearby. The staff we met were very nice and didn't even mention our late check out. Check their website as the other rooms seem way nicer than others. I put 'Resort' in quotes because I have never seen a resort that didn't have a pool.

Room Tip: Don't book Wishing Well

We stayed at this hotel three years ago, and it wasn't that nice. We stayed there last month and it has been remodeled. Got a king size bed, there was a sofa in there as well! Table and coffee maker, refrigerator. New carpeting. Bathroom small, but that's just the way they were built years ago. But everything was so clean! I hope we can get a room there next time we go up for the hot rod show!

Love this place. Room is clean and cute.great location, friendly staff. The only negative the fireplace didn't work and they were unable to get it fixed up they did come right away to try and fix it. But over all it was a great place to stay.

we had a very bad experience, it's a cheap low budget motel with high rates!! our room smelled like cheap air freshener, the bathroom very small. the room very small. the carpet in the hallway was dirty. we tried to get an upgrade to a bigger room (paying the difference) and they didn't help us.
we had booked at expedia and it was already payed but we where willing to lose our money, we had to stay there cause we didn't find room in any other nearby hotel.
I don't recommend it at all. and beware if you get a room in the "wishing well" , it's very bad!
It has a good location if you want to walk around the village.
