This is good info. Thanks! I may return at some point; I liked many things about CCI and next time I would have a better idea what to request.I always request rooms in the 120's because they are on the shuttle side, further back but not too far back (for trying to limit distance)I've been a CCI fan for many years. I appreciate CCI's friendly service, the free shuttle, and the $10 return discount is nice too. I love their very soft beds (I always bring my own pillow so that's not a concern of mine).
I do have to agree the last time I stayed there, this Spring, the room did seem darkish and the carpet old and stained. Not dirty just old and stained. I would prefer a hot breakfast to the continental offerings--some of which (donuts for example) did not look all that fresh. As far as the shutter blinds, for me they are hard to get closed completely at night! There's always some light coming in.
As a fun FYI, ask for a pen and they will give you a Candy Cane shaped pen (yes it does say CCI on it but still cute) I had Goofy autograph a postcard using one of these pens and he pretended to take a bite of the "candy"
I don't know if they've done this in all the rooms or not but ours did not have carpet. It was that laminate wood flooring and it was nice.
I've actually considered packing my own pillow in my suitcase but it takes up so much room . I have (and prefer) a small, squishy down pillow with not too much fluff. Maybe if I got one of those plastic bags that you can squeeze the air out of, I could bring it in my suitcase. I'd be afraid I'd forget it, though!
