Few things to note: 1. These rooms do not have A/C. We stayed in summer during a heat wave and only had fans to cool down the room. 2. The bath/shower was not clean. I wore flip flops and took a speed shower. It looked like it hadn’t been properly cleaned... ever. Aside from those notes, there is a nice pool and jacuzzi and the hotel is located right next to the lake. It’s also super close to town and right next to the Alpine Slides.

Stayed in the HOTEL building, not a cabin. Jetted tub in room 113 was extremely worn and you could see water stains out off all the jets. My girlfriend and I would not even use it. Both nights the people in the upstairs room sounded like they were jumping around but only claimed they were simply walking around. This went on until very late in the evening. I Will not stay here again. We actually left early and went and stayed at The Big Bear Lodge around 3 pm the second night. Have stayed here before, but haven't been back in a few years, probably should have stayed in a cabin.
