My family and I stay at the Cinnamon Bear Inn pretty often: once or twice a season for the past 3-4 years. They're perfect for us. First off, excellent location in the center of town. Good free parking spaces for all your utility vehicles packed with mountains bikes or skis/boards. Next: overall good vibe. Both from the managers, especially Rachel Rae + hubby who are down to earth, friendly, knowledgeable, outdoor types and helpful like crazy (from getting an object stuck under the bed, to recommending where to eat and giving us vouchers). Also good vibe from the other people that stay there, from the families to the sports kids, who all come together for the Cinnamon Bear's home-style breakfast (served HOT everyday from 7 to 9. Once we were late and Rachel called our room at 9 to ask if we're coming to see if she should keep our breakfast on the stove for us. Like said, nice folks.) It's also fun to meet other guests from 5-8 in the main lodge when the Management sets out free coffee, tea, salsa, chips, mini cupcakes, etc in front of the fireplace. Very cosy atmosphere, this is where the ski/snow talk happens in a good season.
Rooms/amenities: They're not glitzy, and we're not picky. (But I hear the rooms are getting renovated slowly - suite 17 is being refurbished this season!). We've stayed in 4 to 5 different rooms over the years, and in every room or suite there is a great old-fashioned gas-fireplace which works extremely well. The towels are fluffy and plentiful. The general level of cleanliness is fine. It's true that you can hear upstairs occupants, and that the wifi is basically only in the main lodge not in the individual rooms (but I hear that might be upgraded!). All in all, this is our place of choice, and we're looking forward to coming back next year too.
