My husband and I are going to ES for the first time and we're bringing our two little dogs. We aren't sure how the youngest doggie will behave when we leave hotel room so we thought we'd go with a motel since B&Bs seem too intimate for a potentially whiney dog. Plus, we don't want to stay in the thick of downtown and need a little space to walk dogs.
We know the BWs won't be luxurious, but we would like clean and not ugly. We prefer quiet and need comfy beds because we're a bit spoiled in that regard.
My research makes me lean toward the Inn of the Ozarks because it seems a bit more updated, but it's also the more expensive. Expensive being relative to someplace like the Crescent. We could stay at the Crescent but, again, worried the young dog will get weird and then we'll get stuck far from town. Our thinking is if the youngster freaks my husband and I can take turns walking around town. Do you know which is closer of the two BWs?
A friend suggested the Land of Nod but it looks old and like it might smell like my grandma's closet-no offense, Land of Nod (or grannie).
We could go the cabin routes but don't want to drive to ES since we heard parking is inadequate. Perhaps a pet friendly cabin on a trolley line.
Yikes, I've asked a ton of questions.
P.S. Our dates are May 17-19 (Sat-Mon).
Any insight will be much appreciated.
