          This website states there are only Full bed options or Twin available yet the hotel website states King or Twin bed options (no mention of double/full). Is the Full bed listing a typo on this website or is the website for the hotel incorrect? Thanks

          I think when they say Full they mean King, We stayed in one of the rooftop airstream trailers and it was definitely King, maybe email them directly just to be sure
