We did not have any of the problems you mentions, In fact, our CARAVAN tour was very happy with the rooms. I know the front desk was most helpful for finding answers or solving problems.

Yes. There is a laundry room where you can wash clothes. You may have to pay a small amount. I believe you also can buy laundry soap at the front desk.
