Where to start...
The positive: the staff was incredibly friendly and attempted to help.
The rest: there was a cord of some kind running behind the toilet up the wall and into the main room. The place is in desperate need of an update, it was shabby. The power went out for 20-30 minutes then the satellite went out about 30 mins after the power came on. We had ZERO hot water and took a "sink" bath with cold water the front desk offered little assistance with the water issue and we had a flight to catch...
Even with the negatives... Where else are you going to stay in Barrow. I'm sure they all have the same issues.
