We exchanged through Interval for a week here at the Town Square. We had a one bedroom unit (116A) lock-off. First impression was really good, especially after reading some of the other reviews. Located a few blocks from light #8 and very centrally located just off 441. We arrived before the 3pm check-in, but received a parking pass for the underground garage so we could park and go sightseeing until our unit was ready. Parking garage, as others have written, is very tight spaces. Anyone with a large SUV or sedan will have a hard time. Spaces are small and the entrance is a tight squeeze. You can see where some have had problems (smile). The view out the front door is to the parking lot of the resort beside this one, but the balcony faces this resort's roaring waterfall. This unit was nicely decorated and fully furnished. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes and pans. There was a microwave, stove and fridge. Beside it was a small closet with a stack washer and dryer. The dining room had a table seating six, and the living room with the balcony had sofa, two chairs, tables, and a flat screen TV. Best of all there was a gas fireplace, but of course too warm for us to enjoy. The bathroom had the sink, toilet and stall shower, while the bedroom had a jacuzzi tub, queen bed, and another TV, plus access to the balcony. The bed was fine, but could have used some better pillows. The unit came with dish soap, dishwasher powder, plastic garbage bags, one single use coffee packet, two small bars of bath soap and one small container of shampoo. There were four of each: washcloth, face towel and bath towel. Towels could be exchanged daily between 9am - 12noon, but we found that time very inconvenient. As others have mentioned, there is only one small towel rack in the bathroom, besides a hook on the back of one of the doors. For some reason as well, we didn't have a trashcan in the bathroom either. Amenities at the resort include a small basketball court (with one hoop), a ping pong table, a small fitness center (bike, treadmill, nautilis-type weight machine), an outdoor pool which was still closed during our stay, and a nice indoor pool which we used several times. There's a few stores and a couple eating places on Historic Nature Trail, but the short walk up the hill to light #8 has everything! We would definitely recommend this resort to our friends.
