We don't mind walking to the main building & we don't mind not having a pool or lake view (**as long as we are not facing the parking lot). Is that the only reason why people get preferred rooms? I am wondering if it's not worth the extra money for us. We do want a king bed, but I've been told you can't reserve them for an extra charge at the Values. we definately do not want to face the parking lot though (unless thats our only choice, we've never seen Pop, so I don't know the set up... Any suggestions on if we need a preferred view? Thanks!
