Reviewed 24 May 2010

My sister and I were in Big Bear for the Amgen Tour of Calif. bicycle race stage which finished at Snow Summit. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and we were lucky enough to get a room closer to the lake and further from the hwy so very quiet. Breakfast was good. Only complaint would be with the shower. Water pressure was normal but water dribbled from showerhead. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. It's close to several restaurants.

We were 3 people in a room for 4 (2queen beds).
We went in Big Bear to ski and the location of the hotel is good. Very close to Snow Summit (5min in car) and to Bear Mountains.
The room was big enough for 3 and for one night. It was clean and we had everything we needed for the towels.

The definitively plus is the continental breakfast! It was included in the price and was very good! Waffles, cereals, bread...there are a lot of choice!

What could have been better: it was not so cold in the room but the blankets are too thin for this season! We had cold during the night.
There is no pressure in the shower, so it takes time to rinse!!!
The second point is the noise in the morning: all the room have view on the parking so when people walk and talk the morning it is noisy.

Without that, the hotel was good. We enjoyed our stay and could rest to ski the day after!

I don't know how this hotel got such a high rating. The staff was nice enough but the room was an absolute dump! The blankets in both the room and the one for the sofa bed looked like giant sham wow squares that had been washed a million times. They we're very thin and provided very little insulation. I misplaced my slipper and looked under the bed to find alot of empty drinking bottles. The TV in the master bedroom did not work, although they had a fireplace you had to buy your own wood, the sofa matress was worn out with pretty much nothing but springs. Very uncomfortable. The knives and silverware in the drawers we're filthy. The sofa bed looked filthy. We had the family suite. Pass this one!

I made my reservation at the Vintage Resort thinking that perhaps I would be with my friends in the middle of a city where nothing was open for Christmas Eve, but I was very surprised when I got not only to the town of the city but to the resort itself. In a very convenient location close to everything. The hotel has clean rooms overlooking the lake. The fireplace was a nice touch (even though is gas) it adds a special charm. Complementary coffee in the rooms and continental breakfast makes it even better. You can prepare waffles right there and the friendly dog (Max) makes you feel at home and not exactly in a hotel. The manager, Kathy, makes the stay more enjoyable with suggestions for restaurants and places to explore, she even let us borrow a wine opener the night before. Hot water all the time so you don't have to worry about getting cold even if outside is snowing. Definitely I'll recommend this place and I would love to go back.

Room clean but bed was poor. Could not sleep. Terrible heater design. It
s in the fireplace. Electric pilot turns on gas over fake logs. Extremely loud clicking noise when it turns on and off during the night. The biggest problem with it was that it wouldn't stay on and would make that annoying sound on and off, on and off, over and over. When I called the next day they said it takes 5 minutes to heat up and work. What a disaster. Room 2.
