We have travelled through China for 2 months and this was one of the best hotels we stayed in. The staff was excellent: they were very helpful and enthusiastic. Some of them speak (very good) English. Cary (the owner?) is very involved and is eager to tell you about all possible trips you can do on Emeishan, using her giant map of Emeishan in the hotel lobby. Staff always asked us how our day had been. The hotel, which is in a side alley of the main street, looks new and clean. Our clean room was spacious and the airconditioning worked very well. Shower was hot with good water pressure. Chinese breakfast is included and above expectations: we got very tasteful noodles, of which we think Cary adjusted it to our Western taste (so not too spicy but just very tasteful). Moreover, eggs and steamed bread was supplemented. Hotel staff gave us a WIFI spot, so we always had full reception.
We've been to the Teddy Bear hotel as well, but that hotel looked rather old compared to the Happy hotel, although it is way more backpacker style. When travelling alone or with multiple friends, the Teddy Bear hotel is probably the best choice in Baoguo if you want to meet other travellers.
We stayed in the Happy hotel for 3 nights. Emeishan, Chengdu and Leshan (for the (giant) Da Fo buddha, after arriving in Leshan take bus 13) are very easy to reach by regular driving buses, leaving from the bus station which is a one minute walk from the hotel.
The last day of our stay in Baoguo, we've been to the Hong Zhu Shan hot springs, belonging to the Hong Zhu Shan (five stars) hotel. We think this place is much better than the Ling Xiu hot springs, which is not very clean and is not located in a lush forest like Hong Zhu Shan. The hotel staff can arrange discounted tickets (normal ticket price is 268 RMB, our discounted tickets were 138 RMB!). They offered to take us there by car for free, but in the end we decided to walk (15 minutes). The hot springs (more than 20 little warm to hot baths) were located in a beautiful forest. Eight more are located inside a (beautiful) building. We did like the hot springs very much!
