I just got back and it was also slow for me. But I'll bet my trip cost less than yours. First you've got to buy a 4" memory foam mattress, twin size. ($99 1 time cost) This is a must for any of the beds be it at Tommy's or in town. I feel like you've got to make the round trip into town daily anyway so why not stay at the Motel 6 for $35 ... that's cheap! Great showers and a/c. Then you've got food to choose from everywhere.
