Not worth the money.

The first room number 33 had a share door and I could hear people talking loud . I asked for another room and was super noise upstairs I called the reception around 9:00 pm The noise did not stop until 12:45 am . People walking super hard I could hear when they open the faucet .

the owner is an amazing person and it made sure that everything was in order.

No heat in room. Close to Lake. Hard to find my room with map.

I liked being offered an upgrade which I accepted and loved the spacious family suite with a lake view

Excellent location with a view of the lake from our room and a nice patio space with our room.

Overall the property was nice, it has a pretty romantic feel though, all of the rooms seem like couples suites...

There was no housekeeping. Nice staff. Convient location.

Nice place with reasonable rates. The room could have a little more attention to detail as far as kitchen gadgets and more towels. No broom was provided to clean after myself. Otherwise a pleasant stay!

The pool was still closed for the season, which was unexpected. Overall very cozy!

Our stay at the Fireside Lodge was great... friendly staff, clean rooms, quiet, and close to the villlage. I’ll definately stay here again!

Very nice and attentive staff. The fireplace was a nice touch.

I'd been looking for a new go-to place in Big Bear since my usual one (Pine Knot Guest Ranch) that had a perfect smaller and cheaper cabin for singles was out of commission. Big Bear is so iffy for lodging, so many places are funky and dated. Fireside Lodge was a real find - clean and spacious and right in the center of the village yet tucked away off a side street and quiet. It's very close to the lake. I had a Jacuzzi suite with gas fireplace. Unfortunately, the fire didn't work very well and the receptionist had to come try and fix it. It still only worked properly 50% of the time and the hotel should update it. Nice spotless kitchen area with mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, china and cutlery. Drawbacks: overhead recessed lights are VERY bright and can't be dimmed. The bed doesn't have bedside tables -- easy to buy two small ones and add small lamps for better ambience. The hanging closet area is TEENY: there is no closet or dresser. You use kitchen drawers by bed for clothes. Still, it's manageable for a two day ski stay. Good quality linens and towels; I always bringing a heavy faux fur rug to get cozy and for my dog, so it protects the bed underneath. Overall, it was a very comfortable stay and I will be back! I went midweek so rates were cheaper.

Room has a fireplace. We needed to purchase firewood which is $8 cash only. But it was worth it ! However kitchen sink was leaking our room. Was a bit disappointed with it.

I did a bunch of research for my trip big bear with my daughter and her dad; I picked this hotel as a place to stay based on reviews and location. I loved it! I stayed in a room with a kitchenette, electric fireplace and a jacuzzi. I'm a clean freak so I was glad everything was clean, all the essentials were there and it really cozy. The only thing that was missy was a few appliances like spoons and extra plates (there was only one big one). The staff did not have extra but they assured me they would be looking into getting more. The location was perfect, room was perfect for us 3 because my daughter is only 2 but I wouldn't have more ppl sleep there (rooms are fairly small). I did recommend this place to a friend and would stay here again on our next trip.

We stayed here for a three day ski trip. Hotel is older but very well kept. The room is pretty small but very clean. The bed is soft but comfortable. Kitchen is small and cookware is old. Internet didn't work for us on one of the days. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

Thank you for taking time to review our Lodge. Sorry for Inconvenience about your room but when you came and complain about noise we show different room and you like it. But our Front desk give you offer also to upgrade but you don't won't to upgrade. So noise is normal but you are too picky and try to harass us in front desk since front desk lobby was closed at 8 pm. Everybody stay in my place but they don't have problem and this is old building so would hear something but we can't control. You should go in 5 star hotel where you will find very quite. Thank you
