We found check in to be quick and easy. But, the desk clerks were busy checking in customers and answering the phones at the same time. And yes there were warm cookies in the lobby.
The room is what we expected for two queen beds. Extras we were not expecting was a gas fireplace and a large overstuffed leather chair.
The creek view was just what others have stated. At the fourth floor most of the creek is obscured by trees growing out of it. But you have a great view of the abandoned Family Inn on the other side. In my view, creek side rooms are not worth it.
Breakfast is worth it. We arrived for breakfast between 7:00 and 7:30 each morning and the 9 tables were never all full. We really enjoyed the biscuits and gravy.
We had maid service all 3 days we were there. The bed was made, towels changed out and the room straightened up each day.
The location off the strip was convenient to downtown and a short drive to the park.
We enjoyed our stay at the Bearskin Lodge. I would stay again, but not creek side.More
