We were thrilled on our way to Phoenix to find that Jacob Lake was open in a beautiful spot and would take dogs. Apparently, the place they sent dog people was way out back with a relatively nice room and we loved the beauty of the late afternoon.
Car stuck in the unplowed snow - the next morning walking out the door the ice that had formed in front of the door - still there - both old broads slipped on the ice - one ending with black eye bloodied nose,cheek and wrenched arm - why when we were possibly the only guests more workers than the number of rooms let - and looking at people their grandparents age - didn't someone throw the ice melting (which they did after the entire episode.
Next - not Inn's fault - we were locked out of the room at 6:30 when we were working on the car - we waited until 7:30 in the car after findingand using a shovel on the inn's porch. Then - one elder stayed in the car while the other walked to the restaurant knocked on the door and was ignored by the whole staff - all we wanted was a key and ask someone to help us get out of the 25 degree weather - but NO, the staff absolutely refused entry - again, knowing we were in our 70's. When their policy only opened the Inn at promptly 8 - we meanwhile trying to stay warm in the car - the younger of the two with her cut face and wrenched arm went to the desk and told them about the falls, standing at the Inn seeing people inside who would not open the door even though we were probably one of the few travelers staying the night and OLD....This is the worst part - how could ignore an old woman in her pajamas and coat knocking on the door - We were responsible for the car being stuck and being locked out, but the insensitive reaponse to people their grandparent's age could have actually been deadly for those not made of tough old skin. I loved all of the whole idea of staying at Jacob's in - I'm from SLC - but was horrified by the careless attitude to two old travelers in BIG trouble.
