The largest Value resort (opened 2002) is a fair choice, with smallish (260 sq. ft.) rooms with one sink and one mirror, and for dining, a heaving central food court with quality akin to the average mall’s. As if to counteract such dormlike austerity, the boxy sprawl of T-shaped buildings, some of which face a pleasant lake, is festooned with outsized icons of the late 20th century: gigantic bowling pins, yo-yos, and Rubik’s Cubes—which kids think is pretty cool.
