Recent guest reviews

Kids loved the pool. Lots of activities at the hotel and right next to the water. Will come here again.

The hotel was just perfect, very close to every single attraction. The room was overlooking the lake, gorgeous view. The staff were very helpful. The room was furnished beautifully. This is a perfect choice when ur going to Big Bear! The Internet was a bit on the slow side, though we could have purchased the premium, but I guess we did not have time to spend on the Internet!

This hotel did not meet our expectations. The rooms were not clean. The edges of the room had lots of dust and affected my children who have asthma. The cooking utensils were old and the heater was extremely loud. The walls are extremely thin and the unit above us had children running all day and night so it was very hard to relax.

Great location and view. Somewhat older, but clean.

Great stay ... Will stay there everytime we go big bear..

Hotel's location was nice and right by the lake. Staff were very helpful and nice. The condo we had was a 1 bedroom condo and it was spacious enough for 4 people. It was clean and had all the amenities.

Great view right on the lake.... Full kitchen & dining area. Balcony with lake view.. Everything was new and clean..

Love this lodge. The staff is helpful, nice and happy. Get property for families with small children.The location is ideal due to easy access to The Village and other restaurants or activities for families. The lodge offers many family activities such as bingo, large checker boards, bocce ball, video rentals and games.Great place to introduce children to fishing. You can fish right off the dock.. Easy boat rentals and dock staff is great. Very trustworthy staff.

We had a really good family getaway!! Everything was perfect for us. We liked indoor swimming pool!

Wonderful stay! Very clean and new. Great place to come and relax. My boyfriend and I loved it.

Our stay was so relaxing and refreshing. Everything was great. The staff was especially nice. This is definitely the place to stay. The visit to the Zoo and the cruises were wonderful. The view from our room was spectacular.

We had a great time at Lagonita Lodge and would definitely go back a second time. The staff is exceptionally friendly from the front desk to maintenance. Quick and easy check-in and check-out. It's just minutes from the ski hills and downtown, but a bit off the beaten path tucked back along the lake and individually owned homes & cabins. The room was a perfect size for our family of four. There were apparent upgrades, like the bathroom, although more are needed to complete the overhaul, i.e. an older stove and kitchen fixtures (didn't bother us though). What kind of bothered us though was that our feet were dirty from the carpet. The room was very clean, but could use a carpet cleaning. Four for maintenance for this and broken light fixture above the table and hair dryer. I'd give it a 5 otherwise because the maintenance staff perused the facilities constantly, even coming to sweep the pool and check to make sure the hot tub was the right temp for our liking. We loved that we had our own room and kids slept and hung out in the living room (sofa bed). The only complaint would be the room is not sound proof from the one above, you can hear lots of walking noise and the toilet flush is really loud, so get an upstairs one. One main reason we tried this place is the INDOOR heated pool, hot tub and rec room for the kids to play. We utilized them each day and had a blast playing at them. They have ongoing promos (i.e. ice cream social & wine & cheese reception) and they were a fun surprise. Overall, besides minor upkeep issues, it's a very cool place, cool people and cool space to stay!

Lodge personnel were very friendly; but in our opinion, there was much to be desired of the property. The vinyl siding needed a powerwash and the roof looked like it needed new shingles. The screen going out to the deck was dirty. The microwave oven airvent fell off. The lake was full of algae...did not want to swim in it; the beach was rocky; the pool was indoors (the weather was fabulous...which seemed a waste to have to swim indoors) We upgraded to a lakeview room for $30/night which was well worth it. (I would not stay at this property again if we did not have a lake view)

Many of their activities take place in a 2nd floor Rec Room and there is no elevator and the stairs are very steep. So, we were unable to participate. When I complained, I was told that the building was old and was grandfathered in, since it was built before ADA. Also, if you ae expecting a sandy swimming beach, you will be disappointed. Otherwise, the accomodations are superb, clean and the employees are friendly and efficient.

Went for a softball tournament Wish we had a late check out Overall it was good

The visit was great. The staff, room, location and stay were outstanding. Totally restful and enjoyable. We would recommend this location for anyone wanting a great vacation,.

Lagonita Lodge is right on Big Bear Lake, with boat rentals available in the summer and minites to the ski slopes in winter. Excellent condo's with Lake view. Fully stocked kitchen for cooking, or reheating leafovers. Popcorn in the micorwave... Yes you can. Fantastic deck overlooking the lake. Hotel staff was very helpful and let us dock our boat in their boat slips. These units are condo timeshares and for the amount we paid, this was a great value.
