The Bad
As mentioned above, the positive reviews outweighed the negative reviews but there were a couple concerns from guests about the dated furniture, decor and old bathrooms.

Several guests mentioned the furniture and decor and described both as old and dated. 

A couple reviewers felt the bathrooms were small and could use some renovations. One reviewer mentioned that the fan did not work in their bathroom and felt the floor needed to be replaced.

Isolated complaints include not enough parking, the beds were uncomfortable and one guest recommended booking a room on the second floor as they could hear everything above them when staying on the main floor.

One reviewer, who travelled with children, expressed concern about the bear warning signs in the parking lot. This guest would have appreciated more information about the frequency and most recent bear sighting.
