Well, I still don't understand how The Terrace Hotel can charge over $120 for a room. No microwave, no refrigerator. I did, however, get a decent view this time. I had to ask again and again if they had cancellations for front rooms because they had me booked in a back room. My friend got a back room and people walk by and look right in at you. I guess I was just a squeaky wheel because they did honor my request. Cyndi was most helpful. She signed me in at the welcome center and then was at the Terrace desk when I checked out. And one more thing: I thought they were remodeling. The rooms looked like they did before. The Terrace still does not deserve a "very good" rating. But at least it was a little better. Maybe next year!
