Golden Bear Cottages
Wow! What a dump! Outdoor metal table and chairs were in the middle of the room, way too small, old bathroom, old blinds and the bed was awful! I would never recommend or stay there again. Very disappointing

Misleading advertisement
The pictures are misleading for the cabin we stayed in. As a gold member, we were guaranteed a certain price. We paid that price but was unaware of the “daily cleaning fee” which they charged to our account. The floor needed vacuuming, there was never anyone in the office, the pillows and bed were old and flat, and there was no real patio or porch. The shower head fell apart! I think if we are going to pay an additional “daily cleaning fee” then the floors should be vacuumed and not swept, and landscaping shouldn’t have blown a bunch of debris into the spa and pool, making it unusable! The pictures for our cabin, showed the deluxe cabin and not the actual one that we got. It was tiny! The toilet seat was worn down to where the paint was coming off and the fixtures were ancient. If I had known about the additional cleaning fee, I would have booked the lake front lodge!
