My husband and I chose this place for our first stay in big bear and it was great!

Check in, it was quick and easy. We got the JR Suite for our stay and this room was amaxing! It was clean and comfortable even with a lovely gas fireplace. Did I mention it was a huge room?!!

Breakfast was just as amazing. There was a lot to choose from, even a menu to order off of directly from the kitchen. The young girl who was working the breakfast was very helpful and polite.

We asked for a late checkout from the manager Penny in the morning who was happy to accommodate us so we could explore the area a bit.

Overall, great experience at this hotel! You wont be disappointed!!

This lounge has the second largest Tiffany Dome in the US. It's simply beautiful as it is back lit at night. Add a fire in their fireplace in the lounge and it's perfect. Good eats too and well prepared drinks. The reception area is beautiful with chandeliers and there is a gorgeous staircase for descending brides. Nice wedding venue with rooms upstairs, but a visit to the bar is a must.

This hotel although old is nice to stay at. Especially in Big Bear if you are looking for a clean, great breakfast, and quality of hotel. Although there are minor things they need to work on this hotel is definitely worth another stay. The free breakfast was the absolute best breakfast I have ever had at any Best Western!!!

This is a one of the nicer hotels in Big Bear. Nice location off the beaten pass. Just outside of town on Moonridge Road in a wooded area. The hotel was very clean and the staff were so friendly and accommodating. Plenty of nice restaurants/bars within walking distance. Our first night stay we ate in the hotels lounge and the Fish & Chips were very tasty. We have a timeshare in town so pretty familiar with the other hotel locations, etc. This is by far the best bang for your buck.

Room Tip: We did request an upstairs room however they weren't able to accommodate. That said it's bes...

Took a last minute getaway for our anniversary and after searching the area decided to book the Best Western inspite of the mixed reviews I read on different sites. I honestly had no expectations at all but we were pleseantly surprised by the service & quality of this hotel. The grounds are very nice, surrounded by lots of pine trees & the staff was very friendly. The room was clean which is all I wanted. Nothing luxurious, just simple and clean. The fireplace and balcony were a nice added bonus. The breakfast is great, cooked to order omelette, potatoes & bacon + all the other standards that come with a continental breakfast. Location is great, close enough to the village & restaurants but far enough to feel you are away from it all. Overall it was a great stay and we would stay here again.
