My wife, dog, and I are taking a 30-day cross country trip from PA to CA and back spring of 2013. Our first stop was to be at this Microtel Inn, Union City. We travel with a 100lb German Shepherd but he has traveled cross country before with 0 instances at any place we stayed. He is a great, well behaved dog. We chose Microtel because their website said they were pet friendly & we stayed at others and continue to do so in other areas. We made our reservation without any problem. I called a week later to start confirming our reservations and at this point, the person I talked to at Microtel asked the weight of our dog. I won't lie (it's kind of hard to hide a 100 lb. dog!) and he informed me that they only take dogs up to 20 pounds. I informed him that his website (not the national website but theirs) says up to 2 dogs are welcome for a $15.00 fee. Nowhere does it say there is a weight restriction. They could not give me a reasonable explanation as to why the weight restriction is not listed and they would not sway from their policy. Had I not called to confirm reservations, we would have showed up there and been told that we can not stay due to this pet restriction that is not listed anywhere. I cancelled and made a reservation elsewhere and they have no problem with any size pet. I understand a lot of places are not pet friendly and we are ok with that but if you are going to have a pet friendly hotel, list your stipulations. I do not hold Microtel Inc. totally responsible, just this particular one. We have a group of friends traveling this summer and going to this area and I informed them of our problem and to say the least, they will not be staying there. We are not "dog crazy" people but it is a little more involved traveling and finding places to stay with a pet. I was initially happy that we found this place but are so glad we found out their policies before we got there and found somewhere that we will be happy with.
