It was nice and clean. They clean bathroom very often. Walking distance to Balboa Park. There is a really delicious Japanese ramen place right next to it.

I like this place. It's pretty much safe and clean. People are nice there, service is good. But it was quite noisy at night time because there seems a lot of young international students staying there.

I very much enjoyed the travelers' environment @ Hillcrest and was extremely comfortable staying there. Very walkable to nightlife. It took them a while to respond to my booking request, but it all worked out!

I am from San Diego and love hosting travelers from around the world. My partner and I created the eco lodging experiences in San Diego which allows travelers from around the world to interact with other travelers from many different cultures!

After a few years of hosting guests in San Diego, we decided to create a beautiful Mountain Lodge experience in the mountains of Big Bear Lake catering towards guests of all ages and backgrounds.

I spend the majority of my time in San Diego helping out with the hosting, but I do try and make it to Big Bear at least twice a month to enjoy the mountains!

If you are going to be visiting us in Big Bear at the Mountain Adventure Lodge, our managers, Rudy and Ian will be pleased to assist your with a wonderful stay.

We have a strong passion for showing people a great time and making sure they enjoy their holidays! Please be sure to ask if we can help you out at all! :)
