We did the same thing as the other comment, although we understood we were getting a motel, a dinner package, and a visa ppd card. We did end up buying, but the incentives were given to us the day we checked in. We now like our timeshare and for the most part have been pretty happy. Its nice to not have to stay at a hotel when we travel and a bonus to get to claim the interest on taxes !
The only thing negative I would say is actually not even about grand crowne but its partner interval. Some of the places we stayed in could definitely use updating....the one place we stayed in the ozarks had a cute cabin, but the wallpaper was peeling in a lot of places, but didn't affect our overall stay. (It also had an awesome jacuzzi tub that had a heater in the master bedroom , me and 5 of my kids donned swimsuits and got in this thing!)
Thanks GC for the wonderful memories.More
