    Wasn't too bad!! Especially for the price! The first room we had the door would not unlock so they sent us to another room....the room benefited us because we only slept the rest of the time we were out and about.

    Vehicle registration is a separate fee of $15 plus tax. If booking direct through onsite management the fee is included in your total.

    I used VRBO. Also you can go to the front desk and see if there are openings. I think you would get a better deal through vrbo though. Make sure you pay through vrbo.
