I chose to stay in one of the floating rooms after reading the reviews. My boat was #13 (oddly enough the same number as the review just below mine - I noticed this after I returned from my trip and re-read some of the reviews) and I found #13 to be clean, free of bugs, no mold (I looked because some other reviews and mentioned that) and quite homey. Yes it is small, but I was by myself and only planned on using it to sleep there so I didn't need a lot of room. The bed was a double and the bathroom I thought smelled very clean. It is a small bathroom (the sink is actually out in the room) and the shower is about the size of a cruise ship shower. I am only about 5'5 and the shower head came below my head, but the water was hot and the shower and towels were clean. There was a t.v., mini fridge and a microwave in the room as well. I have included some pictures below of my room. The room a/c worked well - I didn't really find it too noisy, I have had those in the past, so it didn't bother me. It kept the room cool and free of humidity. The boat didn't really rock but it did creak as it rubbed against the dock from time-to-time. The man checking me in was really friendly. He actually made sure to ask me if I knew I had a boat room. The office is in a little hut right on the left when you drive in, they have a little cup outside for you to drop your room keys in if you check-out before they open. I did notice there were 3-4 buildings (it looked like 2 rooms to a building) that were on the right as you drive in. I could see how people could mistake those for an office at night - so you might want to check on that if you get the first one as you drive in. There was also 2 other rooms that were not boats down by the dock, they had a porch out front and were right by the water.
This place might not be for everyone, but for the price you really can't beat it and for the type of room. There are a lot of other places to stay but none of them are "floating rooms". Where else will you have a chance to stay in a floating room? It's not the newest place, it's not the fanciest place - but it has more personality than any place I think I have ever stayed before.
