          Cancellation policy is to charge you for one nights stay. Even if you book it 2 1/2 weeks out and cancel the next day. This site says $109 per night. Book by phone and the dump is $145. Don't stay here.

          I hope the Tour Bus is cleaned up before we get there. Five nights with musty odors will have me screaming. We'll be there in April. Are there any kitchen items in the bus?

          Response from Mark B | Reviewed this property |
          There are no kitchen implements, utensils, pots and pans, cups or anything. Also, the front AC was not enough to cool the bus so expect HOT temps to boot.
