Victoria Avenue Improvement Project Update

In December crews completed work on Victoria Avenue roadway improvements between Highland Avenue and Lynwood Drive. These activities are part of the City of San Bernardino’s Victoria Avenue Improvements Project, which is funded by the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and overseen by the City of San Bernardino Public Works Department. The project management team appreciated your patience while crews completed paving activities to make your drive on city streets safe and smooth.

Bear Springs – A Boutique Hotel
Comes to Highland!

Bear Springs Hotel

Last month San Manuel Tribal Citizens, community leaders and local elected officials gathered to celebrate the transformation of the former Hampton Inn into the Bear Springs Hotel with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Bear Springs Hotel officially opened its doors for business on December 3.

Our newest business venture is the first boutique hotel of its kind in the Inland Empire that offers 105 comfortable rooms and great dining at the Bear Springs Bistro & Lounge.

Bear Springs Hotel offers its guests 24/7 in-room dining; meeting and event space; a fitness center; and a picturesque outdoor terrace with a pool, outdoor hot tub and fire pit.

The hotel is located at the San Manuel Village, 27959 Highland Ave., Highland. The hotel’s 100-person staff is led by General Manager Gerri Manzo, Assistant General Manager Moya Phimmasane and Executive Chef Kyle Luke.

The renovation has brought something truly unique to the area and we are overjoyed to nowbe able to share this new venture with our community. Experience Bear Springs for yourself at www.bearspringshotel.com.
