A long with Review by TD, we have also stayed at The Resort at the Mtn several times prior to staying last night with our 2 dogs. I'm in agreement, although I will add if you do still decide to stay the room were in is located the best, at the end and it has more privacy. The pet friendly rooms are called the Croft rooms, and I agree that they are not as nice as the rooms we've had in 2 prior stays, and therefore should be priced accordingly. IMO, it's often a bit of a gamble when bringing your pets along. We've booked for example a hotel in Bellevue WA that also claimed to be "recently remodeled" when visiting for the Holidays that after an hour we couldn't take it and we left. The upside to the Croft room we had (C10) was that it was private, nice peaceful view of the woods surrounding the golf course with a small patio off it, and super comfy beds, pillows, linens like the other rooms we've stayed in. Rooms were clean, but as anyone with a dog knows, it only takes a minute for your dog to start sniffing every inch, so the dogs are very conscious that other animals have been there. Does the room smell? Well it's a pet room, so there is definitely a different smell than a room where no pets have been. We didn't find it to be a problem and were both pretty sensitive to smell, and my husband is sensitive to pet dander. What I didn't like is that the back fenced area is so shallow that you feel like your intruding on the other rooms privacy if you try o get your pet out more than 4 ft from the doorway in the patio. Plus there are deep holes in the lawn which you can easily break an ankle in if your not careful, and at night their not easily seen or avoidable. There are fridges in the room which are nice, and your right across from the Mallard restaurant and near the spa. It doesn't appear that the restaurant is pet friendly even outside, as we couldn't get an answer from the hostess, just a puzzled look and "hmmmmm, I don't think so". We actually drove around and asked several restaurants, really surprised this close to Portland not to have pet friendly dining hn every one walked had outdoor seating. We ended up at the Rendezvous Grill. They too did not really have pet friendly dining, but we're sweet enough to say, we"ll If you don't mind tying them to a nearby tree and making sure they don't come onto the Patio we"ll seat you." We semi reluctantly agreed ( only because we're not used o doing that) we're afraid it would cause our dogs to moan or howl, as their not used to that. Fortunately they were ok as long as they could see us. We had great service, good food. Long story short, we'll probably leave the dogs at home next time and not count on the RATM to be one of our choices for pet friendly places, we still love their other rooms and the grounds are beautiful. We've found it very relaxing their. Stay without Pets rank a 4, with pets a 3.
