Hillcrest Lodge, Big Bear Lake, United States of America
Nice, friendly, and accommodating
Good location but if you care about noicmse secure a room or cabin off the highway otherwise you will hear the buzz coming in and out of BB. Ken and Val are wonderful and will do what they can to make your stay comfortable. Rooms could use a bit of an upgrade, new appliances, etc. But for the price and close proximity to the Village you get good value. Nothing fancy but nice. Village is a mile away, you can walk it if you are a walker otherwise best take your vehicle.

Will never recommend this place, they are thieves.
I would never stay there again. Ken, the owner/manager was welcoming when we got there, it was me, husband, two sons and a 10 week old miniature schnauzer puppy. After we checked out, Ken sent us an email saying that our dog ripped the comforter in the bed, and went ahead and charged us $225 to replace the comforter. I contacted him to tell him that it was pretty much impossible because our dog is very little, doesn’t have the capacity to chew and ripp a thick comforter, plus we never let him out of our sight. He was so disrespectful saying that maybe it was our kids that chewed the comforter out, and going to the lengths of saying “ go ahead and sue me, I know your husband is in Law Enforcement, let see how his employer likes taking me to small claim courts”. Due to our experience, I’m sure he uses his “pet friendly “policy” to rip people off. To whoever reads this, please think twice about staying there, there’s plenty of other places to stay, and if you have pets, don’t leave without having management check your room for any type of damage, so you don’t get screwed by people like Ken that emails and charges our account 7 hours after we checked out. Law Enforcement family, please save yourselves from something like this, this man obviously dislikes anyone in the Law field.
