Ooh, the Park Place looks nice!

sunrise, sunset...friends of DH's went camping on the OR coast and got up mega-early to see the sunrise. Sitting, waiting, freezing, sitting, waiting some more....didnt' even notice that it had basically gotten light all around them. Finally some kind soul stopped by and reminded them that they were on the wrong coast for a coastal sun-anything. Poor friends...

Sorry these are so big. These are of the Desert Inn and Suites, right across the street on Harbor. We had a parlor A suite that we got for $79/night. Couldn't beat the rate and it was very clean. no problems.

Here are some pictures from our last trip. We stayed at the DLH. We had a standard room. The view was not much to look at, but we still loved our stay and would not hesitate to stay here again!

Some of the pictures are a bit blurry...sorry about that!

One of the beds:


DD and her bed:


The detail on the headboard:


The vanity area outside of the bathroom:


Wallpaper detail:


Glow in the dark pixie dust boarder:


Sign on the window that I thought was cute:


Our lovely view :

Here's a few from HOJO's.
The garden pool is undergoing renovation so this is what it looked like last weekend. Didn't bother us at all........just gets me excited for what's to come by the time we go next year.

Thanks for the pictures especially the ones looking down the streets and outside. It is nice to be able to see where the park entrance is in relation to the hotels and even to see what eating establishments are around!!

I am hoping for a great AP rate so we can spend a few nights at the GC on our next trip. Gorgeous pics! Thanks for sharing!

The ones that didn't come out are missing part of the IMG code. This is what you have in your post:
IMG]http://i261.photobucket.com/albums/ii55/njgumc/2323232327Ffp33Evq3D32423E4923E5343.jpg[/IMG]
This is what it should be. You needed to close the ["IMG"] brackets; the bracket on the left side is missing.


And here's the other one. You posted IMG]http://i261.photobucket.com/albums/ii55/njgumc/2323232327Ffp33Evq3D32423E4923E5-1.jpg[/IMG] Again missing the IMG bracket on the left. This is what you wanted:


I don't know how your pictures got to be uploaded so small. When I upload to photobucket I upload the original photo in its original size, then I resize it on photobucket. Maybe you clicked the wrong link to copy/paste here or maybe resized too small to thumbnail size or something?
