Not having stairs was bizarre. Can't imagine what this would've been like in wet weather. Coffee maker also was not working.

"Unsatisfied"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Spiders in the room. TV didn't work half the time and neither did the air conditioner. Booked this Hotel for location and restraunt for two big free pancakes for breakfast and they serve lunch and supper, however the restraunt wasn't open for breakfast the five days of my stay and opened on Thursday for lunch and dinner. It would of been nice if the Hotel would of mentioned that the restraunt wasn't open at the time of my reservation. I want be staying at this motel anymore.

"I was disappointed with the poor customer service."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I came to the Wild Bear Inn after booking a same night stay. We had decided to go to Gatlinburg on our way to North Carolina, from MI. We knew we'd be arriving after hours. I called the oncall number when we got in for the night. The night security officer checked us in and have us key cards. We went to the room. The keycards didn't work. I had to call the oncall number back. The security officer was dispatched back to the hotel. He checked our cards and found they did not work. He went to make new ones. The new ones he made also did not work. He went to make phone calls to inquire how else to open the door since he thought they had no more rooms available. There was no other way to open the door. I finally asked if the lock had to be reset. He said "I'll try that next. " That was the issue. After the locking mechanism was reset, the keys worked. Then the security officer complained to us about the staff and how they should've reset the lock. I think he should've waited for 10 minutes and called to see if we were inside since we were coming in late. The next morning, we were supposed to be able to get a complimentary breakfast until 11am from the attached tavern. At 10am,we went to the tavern to be seated for breakfast. After a 20 minute wait, we were told we would need to wait another 45 minutes to be seated. There were plenty of open seats and staff was standing around talking. The extra 45 minutes would've put us past the 11:00 mark, even though we came an hour early. All in all, it was disappointing and not worth half of what it cost to be there.

"Not completely happy with room for price."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
We where not happy that we where charged 150.00 for our small dog that was nonrefundable and where not told that there was a extra charge when making our reservation and we asked for a downstairs room cause our 82 yr old mother was with us. When we got there they did not have us in a downstairs room and got stuck in a older section with a lot of noise. When we went out in the morning asked housekeeping for towels and she told us she didn't speak English restaurant was closed and that was one of the main reasons we where staying there. So will not be staying here again. Also did not like that it was attached to a resort to be such a run down place.
