A presentation may not be required, but that won't stop them from trying to get you to sign up for one.

Right after you check in, you'll get shuffled off to the VIP desk or some such. They will begin putting the pressure on to attend a "breakfast" (AKA sales pitch). They will even go so far as to demand a $20 deposit for the honor of attending their sales pitch so don't agree to go with the thought that you'll just skip out on it later. Its a pain to get your $20 deposit back

Decline any invitation to be shown to your room. This is just another excuse for them to try to sell you on attending a presentation. The signage, at least at Lakes is not that bad so you shouldn't have trouble finding your own room.

Lastly, unplug the room phones. They will call you to try to get you to attend the sales pitch. And they like to start early.

One thing to keep in mind through this--no presentation required means only that--you are not *required to attend* to get the special price (or free). They will still push and hound and harass to get you to attend. The only time you are obligated to attend is if you are getting a special deal which notes that the pitch is required (otherwise they'll just upcharge your CC the full amount of the room). So don't feel guilty about saying no at check-in and disconnecting your phone.
