“What a great find!”
Reviewed 3 September 2012 via mobile

Reasonably priced, clean, comfortable cabins and, best of all, the management was helpful, accommodating, pleasant and eager to share advice and tips, especially about restaurants, entertainment and travelling with pets. The hotel/cabins were well located near hiking, water and town. We stayed in the older, renovated section because we had a dog, but there are newer more well- appointed cabins for those without animals. Lots of options. I'd definitely stay here again. Hit the Azteca Restaurant nearby. It was scrumptious

Everything about this cabin resort is top notch! The room was extremely clean and the had all the amenities and then some. The front desk staff, Tony and Eeva was very helpful and friendly and were always there to lend a helping hand. We're planning on booking another room very soon and would highly recommend Bay Meadows to anyone thinking of going to Big Bear.

Room Tip: Any room you choose will be top notch.

We just got home from our 2nd stay at Bay Meadows Resort and plan to return for our next Big Bear trip. The cabins are more like little cottages ... nicely painted on the outside to enhance the mountain vibe, yet when you walk in you are embraced by the warmth and charm of a clean, well decorated, and comfortable home. We stayed in Unit #103 which has two bedrooms, (which is great for when the kids are sleepy, but the parents are not), full bathroom with heater, and a living room with a large HD tv. The full kitchen was also great as I was able to have cold drinks and food available whenever anyone was hungry. The wifi worked perfectly for all of our devices. My husband and I had coffee on the porch in the mornings while we watched the kids play in the courtyard of the lovely property. Flowers are everywhere. It was heaven. I went shopping in town (just 1 mile from the cabins) while my husband and the kids went swimming in the pool on site. Perfect. Tony and Kevin always had a smile when we walked into the front office and know everything from the right fishing spots to a good place to watch fireworks! The rates are very reasonable and are far less than other cabins in the area. Stay there once... you'll be back. See you there!

Room Tip: Unit 103 is perfect for a family of 4!

This place far exceeded our expectations and this has to be one of THE BEST places to stay in Big Bear! Tony, the owner and manager was very warm and friendly. The 2 bedroom unit we stayed in was fantastic. It was spotless, like new. Full Kitchen, Full Size Fireplace, wonderful everything and everything was in near new condition. We would definitely stay here again...we are picky and commonly stay at 5 star resorts and we were extremely satisfied with these accommodations. We typically stay at the Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa. We will choose Bay Meadows Resort for our future accommodation needs when visiting the area going forward.

Room Tip: Unit 109 was fantastic!

The basic things I expect from a hotel are as follows; a quiet environment, reliable wifi, and a comfortable temperature in the room. This hotel had none of those things. The noise isolation in the room was a joke, I could hear my neighbors cough and their telephone ring. I also had the pleasure of following my neighbors entire conversation at 7 am, as I could hear every word they said as if they were in the same room. The hotel advertises that it provides reliable wifi, yet when asking why the connection was not working, the hotel manager did little to fix the problem. The heater in the room in incredibly loud and does not heat the entire room. Overall, a horrible experience.

First, let me appologize for your inconvenience as to noise from your neighbors. We are here to insure your comfort and would have contacted the other guest to bring their noise level down. Due to the type of construction, there is not much we can do to surpress the noise. In regards to the wifi and the heater, a call from you would have allowed us to repair the problem or move you to other accomodations. I would like to invite you back to experience the real Bay Meadows Resort. I am sorry for all your problems and insure you they all will be taken care of. Please do not judge us by this one incident. we do really care about our customers and try to make them happy as much as we can. Thank you for your comments. Tony

This was by far the best place we've found in Big Bear and we go quite a bit! The rooms were very clean and the grounds are kept up. I would definitely refer anyone here, they even have pet friendly rooms.

Room Tip: Room 109 had an awesome view!

Very good place to stay. Kevin, the manager was so friendly and welcoming. Accommodated our room change request. The units are smaller than we expected and pretty poky. However, they found us a cabin which I highly recommend. Cost more, but worth it. Comfortable beds, even the sofa bed and the kitchen has plenty of room and all the items you need. You're a bit out the way here, but Big Bear Lake is a great place to stay - if you're wondering whether to, do it - you won't regret it.
