“A very good stay at a budget”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

A small room with 2 comfortable beds and full bathroom at a very reasonable price. The hotel is very well located on the town with everything at less than 10 min drive. The only observation is that the room would benefit a lot with additional shelves here and there for accomodating luggage and other items that otherwise end up being placed in the carpet.

Room Tip: Most rooms seem good.

Wi-Fi didn't work. There were 4 listed routers when we searched, yet only one results in gaining a signal so week, it was basically worthless. They should invest the 200$ necessary to replace them and join the rest of us in 2014.

Heated Pool was empty. If your website and sign say you offer something, you should offer it. Most feel this equates to integrity in your marketing.

good location, really close to the lake and the village. the room we stayd in was for people with batrooms so that was a mayor plus. how ever the futon for the other couple was not confortable at all.
the room have a minikitchen so we didnt spend that much dining out

this was the first time traveling to Big Bear, and if i ever go back i will definetly consider Fire Side Lodge

in general good price, good location, good service,

Hotel located very close to the lake and good restaurant for dinner "Sweet Basil Bistro".
Poor breakfast and you can hear everything in the neighboring room.Be careful doing something noisy =)

Recommend!

Was looking to get a cheap room to enjoy our weekend snowboarding. Price was great for a basic room, but you get what you pay for. Outdated tv, blinds on door broken, stained carpet, and toilet was gross (it flushed back unwanted things). The walls are SUPER Paper thin!!!! You could hear you're neighbors footsteps and conversations. Not to mention had "room service" knock on our door at 8:00pm (sketchy much?). The only plus about this place is the location. It's walking distance to the village and easy to get to.

We got a great deal through this site so I wasn't too upset with the tiny room. Was nice to have a mini fridge, microwave and a fireplace even though the fireplace timer clicked so loud I couldn't sleep with it on. Very close to the Village which was a huge plus. I'd stay here again if I paid a bit more for a bigger room.

We wanted to be able to prepare our own food and Fireside had all that we needed. Second time at The Fireside and will not be the last. Able to walk to all the local entertainment and we each had our own bathroom which is important to two women.
