We booked this hotel a few days ahead and were assigned room 210, which was a room with two double beds and a fireplace. All I can say on the decor is "wow" and I'm still not sure whether it's a good wow or bad. They certainly took their vision of rustic way too far. The chandelier looks like an upside down birds nest, is enormous and I swear, if it had fallen, would have impaled anyone unlucky enough to be below it. The headboards on the beds were also made of branches, and seriously, if you're in this room, watch your heads. The branches, knotholes, etc poked out all over the place. Ditto the dresser. Walking through the room in the dark is certainly a challenge. If I were ever in the area again and booked this hotel, I would definitely request another room. I understand the rest of the rooms are far more normal.
The negatives: carpet old and certainly could use a good cleaning; the bathroom door latch was broken and wouldn't stay closed (they did fix this relatively promptly, though); the locks on the front door were wonky, they took a bit of jiggling to get everything to line up so you could lock or unlock the door; and the fireplace took forever and a day to light (it's a gas fireplace) and the pilot light just didn't want to work. Check in was slow and while the woman who checked us in wasn't exactly rude, she wasn't exactly the most pleasant person on earth, either. The other staff we came into contact with, however, were pleasant and polite.
The positives: it was clean, relatively comfortable (especially for only one night) and had ample parking. Also, it is attached to a small zoo, which was much nicer and more well-kept than I expected. The bears are awesome :)
While I wouldn't rule this out as a place to stay, I would definitely look for something else. It was a little pricey for the quality of the accomodations and honestly, that room we had scared me lol
