I was able to book a king room on a Saturday afternoon for that same night when we decided to leave earlier than planned (booked through Expedia). I paid about $230 for the room, which I thought was reasonable for a last minute same day reservation on a weekend. It was easy to find and check in was a breeze. There was a sign when we got there that said they were sold out. We were told about the free breakfast and and other basic amenities.

The bed was comfortable enough and the linens were nice and clean. The free breakfast included coffee and juices, a waffle station, eggs and gator tots, dry cereals and milk, and some breads and bagels. I did not see any butter but there were at least two teenaged baseball teams staying there - they may have simply run out. It's nothing to write home about, but the waffles were good and my husband said the coffee was much better than he expected.
