"We stayed in the only rental house on the property."
"The bigger rooms near the road are nicer."
"They have menu's in the room for Sloopy's Sports Cafe. We ate there and every bodies food was horrible, including the people sitting next to us and the people in the room next to us who had theirs delivered. It use to be good food but those days are gone."
"Ask for a remodeled room. You may have better luck."
"Book somewhere else"
