I enjoyed the different experience in the trailer park on the rooftop. It was more noisy than being in the hotel and I was grateful that the air conditioner worked during the warm day and the heater worked when it was colder at night. The shower was tricky for me to use being a 6'4" tall person but the trailer was neat and nicely decorated. I was in the "Dorothy" (Polka dot) version.
I did find 2 roaches which I duly exterminated but I didn't find any others after that. They were adult size which leads me to believe they were just the regular city variety which managed to sneak into the trailer and not that the trailer was infested or anything.
For what it's worth it's a bit expensive and I wouldn't stay there for more than 2 nights but well worth considering if you want something different. Fair warning ... do not stay there if you want peace and quiet when they have their movie or music nights.
