We stayed in what is considered the Annex on the first floor. I happen to like the "motel" style, it makes it much more convenient when the kids inevitably forget something in the car. The room was clean and the furnishings old-fashioned but in a charming way. The beds were very comfy, nicely made up with feather beds and smooth sheets. What it needed badly was better lighting; it was impossible to read. The air conditioner was a window unit, but worked adequately, albeit a bit loudly. The bathroom had upscale toiletries, even my kids (boys!) commented on how nice they smelled. The shower pressure was excellent. The shower fan was loud, my little one was afraid of it at first but it came on with the light, no choice but to have it on. We wished we could have used the pool, it looked lovely, but Mother Nature didn't cooperate. The room had everything we needed (iron, hair dryer, extra towels). For those things we needed, it is only a quick drive to several shops and restaurants. Also, we had the dog with us and there are convenient places to walk her around the parking areas and the office bldg. next door. We took advantage of the complimentary coffee, teas and cocoa, fruit, and the continental breakfast. All in all, I was very satisfied, especially at the Priceline rate.
