The Pods: 90' long by 60" wide and 5 ft high. A pod is your bento box of goodies.

- 22" flat screen TV with Roku (Netflix, Hulu, Pandora) that you watch with headphones
- adjustable night light for reading in bed
- comfortable foam, or spring mattresses (1 person per bed)
- private locker (please bring a lock)

STORAGE SPACE: the locker is 12" wide by 11" deep and 24" high. Bring a lock or get one from us! At the foot of your bed you have 47" long by 18" wide space for your suitcase and/or backpacks. Plus hooks and a towel rack inside your pod.
