6/10 Good

Beat up lodge-like room
Room was rough: old furniture, no internet, bugs. The bathroom, although large, was dirty. Room had sloppy paint job and uncomfortable bed.

4/10 Fair

The first room we were given was on the second floor and the ramp to het to that floor was VERY steep and difficult to manage if you have any problems walking. The room had torn carpet, smelled bad was dirty. The second room was on the ground floor but had no windows. We paid extra for a view of the pool which had no water in it. We ended up leaving early. Overall it was not a good time.

10/10 Exceptional

Anything it lacks in luxury, it makes up for with great service. The room wasn’t anything super nice, but everything was clean and I felt safe. Having a tv, coffee maker, safe, and mini fridge made it feel complete. I wore socks while in the room, but the floor was still clean.

8/10 Very good

Will book this hotel again in the future.
It was decent for only staying one night. ( had booked the weekend at a different hotel; stayed at the wild bear inn for just one night early to avoid driving through bad weather) the room was clean, beds were comfortable, the only downfall was the other guests being a little loud at 1:30 a.m. I would definitely stay again and wished I had booked my hotel for the weekend at the wild bear inn instead.
