The rooms are like simple motel rooms. They are clean with linens and towels and a TV. Not fancy but suitable.
Sleeping options are to have your own room (Individual) or room with another (Double). Each person in a double will register separately using the “Double” option. If you plan to room with someone, be sure to let us know who that is when you register. It is okay to register as a “double” and not have a roommate in mind, in which case they will be assigned.
