Me and a few friends had been wanting to take a trip together for a while now. The big dog show was scheduled and my one friend was to be showing her dog, so this was the perfect excuse to get away. The only catch was we would be travelling with 6 dogs! After calling around to multiple rental houses, we just weren't having any luck finding anyone who would be willing to take all 6 dogs.
We'd resigned ourselves to staying at the Motel 6 when I found the Queen of Hearts. Decided to give them a call and see what they thought about accomodating the four of us and our pack of canine companions. Michelle was great! No hesitation at all, in fact she was super excited to hear about the variety of breeds we would be bringing. We had a Great Dane, a pitbull, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, a Kerry Blue and 2 smaller terrier mixes in our party. No problem, she said!!
The resort itself is in a great location. Its right off the main road that runs thru town but in a super quiet residential area. Far enough to avoid the noise, but just a 5 minute drive gets you to the heart of downtown Palm Springs.
The rooms themselves were more than spacious. I shared a room with one friend and her pittie, and although the queen bed was a little crowded with her 60 lb pittie sleeping between us...it was more than comfortable. Fortunately, my dog (Great Dane) sleeps on his dog bed on the floor, otherwise we would have been in trouble! :)
The 2nd room we had slept 2 other people and four dogs. All four dogs slept in that bed, so they won out and got the room with the King bed.
Both rooms had full kitchens with pots and pans & a coffee maker.
The courtyard was a tropical getaway, with a heated pool and a bbq for everyone to use. Since it was a quite weekend for the resort and we were the only people there, other than one person who was staying long term, Michelle even let the dogs run free as long as we kept an eye on them and kept them from doing their 'business' within the courtyard. Completely understandable and not a problem!
All in all, it was a super fun trip. We had fresh citrus waiting for us each day, picked by Michelle from the many fruit trees on the property. Can't wait to go back again in the future!
