We stayed two nights at the Great Bear lodge and were very disappointed. As others have pointed out, the tackiness starts when you see that to get to the front desk, you have to walk through a gift shop reeking of cheaply scented candles. Communication is difficult in that more than half the staff -- in the shop, at the front desk, in the restaurant -- speaks very limited English, though their Mandarin sounds solid. You really can't find any American college students for these jobs? Our room was dark -- how about springing for some higher-wattage bulbs? -- and smelled slightly moldy. We ate one dinner and one breakfast in the restaurant before giving up and going elsewhere; the food was unimaginative, poorly prepared, and VERY slow in arriving, though the restaurant was far from full. All in all: a rip-off.
