This past Friday, upon hearing that a job being done on our house was going to take 4 days instead of 2, my family and I decided to take a trip to DL starting on Saturday.
Since we only had a day to plan the trip, I went to Expedia to find a hotel room. All of our favorites were already booked so we decided to go for one that was the least expensive and closest to the entrance of DL. It was the Park Vue Inn. It was described on Expedia as having "spacious rooms and pillow top beds" and had traveler reviews of 4.1 so we decided to book a room with two queen beds.
When we got there at 11 pm Saturday night, all they had left was a puny room with one king bed , but the very friendly employee at the desk offered to bring us a rollaway bed at no additional charge. Since my hubby had driven the entire 8 hour trip,we figured he deserved the king size bed and the twins and I could share the rollaway:
Just kidding! My hubby took the twin bed and the girls and I slept in the king. But you can see from the pictures that the room was NOT spacious and the bed didn't have a pillow top matress as far as I could tell! ( Hmm, maybe they just meant that there were pillows on top of the mattress...LOL) That comforter on the bed gave me the heebie jeebies too. But hey, at least the twin bed was in the corner by the air conditioning unit which muffled the sound of my hubby's snoring and he could easily reach the mini fridge from it when he got thirsty!
I guess another "good" thing was that we didn't have to worry about oversleeping and missing the rope drop on Sunday morning since there were workers outside at 6:30 am sharp using really loud chainsaws to cut back the palm trees!
And I should probably mention that the hotel employee did offer to let us switch to a room with two queen beds on Sunday night, but we were so tired by the time we got back from the park that we didn't want to bother.
So all in all, the Park Vue Hotel was okay , but we wouldn't stay there again.
Now on to the fun part of the report!
