I have been going to Punxsy for several years now and The Pantall has never been a good value. The heat is always iffy, there is NEVER any hot water, and the bar/restaurant is hit or miss - mostly miss.
This year it was 100% worse than normal, with normal being pretty bad to begin with... No heat in the rooms, just space heaters. No TV - supposedly changing over to Sat or some nonsense. Seriously, like anyone would believe you didn't schedule that to happen way before the busiest weekend of the entire year? Total BS - the cable was shut off. WiFi didn't work on any floor. They were running the bar out of plastic coolers and didn't have that many things to chose from.
Honestly, the owners will inevitably end up in court over this. There's no way you can run a bait and switch operation like this and stay out of trouble. There were so, so many people at the front desk complaining that I don't feel the need to file any lawsuit - someone else will do it for sure. If someone wants to get a class action together, I'm in!
Wait until it gets sold or foreclosed on before you spend any money here. It needs some deep pockets and 6 months of serious renovation before they can even call it a hotel. It truly is an embarassment to the town of Punxsutawny and the people that live and work there.
