Location can’t be beat; rooms are old and can hear other patrons easily especially above your room; recommend getting 4th floor room if possible. No WiFi, tv, fridge, internet service anywhere, be prepared. Food and especially dining very difficult if not impossible to come by. Bring food into the park for reliable food source
