No I have not heard any problems since the refurb they did. Before the refurb I had one personally where the lock pulled right out after twisting the key to lock and leave.

But we usually lock our important items out of sight in a suitcase. Out of sight out of mind!

opinions please

I reserved a garden view room at POR for our first night. The rest of our trip will be in the RR with the summer package. The difference between the garden view and the standard RR is $18. Should I just get a RR for the first night as well?ase.
