Wow, have I been sorely disappointed by the so called "pet friendly" hotels in Sedona. Every hotel here that allows dogs only allows them on the dark first floors and in many cases only the regular rooms. My husband and I like suites with great views. I am a landlord, so I understand the problems that might arise when allowing dogs. We are very respectful, have a very friendly dog that does not bark , he almost always goes with us when we leave the hotel and we do not ever take our dog for elimination walks on hotel grounds (my feeling is even if you pick up your dog's pile it is rude to have him urinate where people are walking). But inside the problems dogs can cause is barking (which can annoy everyone else and the dog owners should have to deal with it), and potential damage, which the owner should of course pay. I understand having some rooms off limits for allergy purposes, but why are we always stuck in the bottom floors? The irony is we usually get stuck under someone who lets their kids go nuts and cause ongoing and overbearing noise. I have no problem paying and extra cleaning fee. The hotel operators in Sedona need to learn the difference between accepting dogs and being dog friendly. Never had this experience where every hotel in a town has this same stupid policy. Is there some town law on this? What purpose does it serve?
