I live here in June and know the owner and staff of the Villager. I want to assure everyone that they are quite friendly!
The comments about the hotels that don't allow pets seems to be in the wrong place because the Villager allows pets.
Most hotels don't allow pets for a simple reason, there is very little room for dog walking and many people don't clean up after their pets. This can turn into an irate complaint from a guest who may discover a doggy gift on their shoe. I guess this explains the short temper, but it's not very professional.
