Overall I had a great expirience. The room was clean and tastefully decorated. It's difficult to find a place last minute on a Friday. Especially when you have a dog. I have already recommended your property to friends with dogs in Arizona who will be visiting. I'll be staying here again in the near future.

Everything went well, the front desk people very attentive, but when using the shower, noticed that they forgot to take one dirty body scrub towel from previous guest. At the time of check out the clerk at front desk was friendly and encourage me to write the review. Which I thought it was very positive!
