I thought the hotel was clean. The room was spacious and seemed newer. The front desk was extremely helpful with the many questions I had about the area.
When I checked in, a very handsome and friendly cat named Buddy came to greet me; he's wonderful! He had been given up by his former owner who went to live in a nursing home, and the Best Western adopted him from an area shelter. I initially thought Buddy was living a comfortable life indoors, but later found out that the hotel makes him spend his time outside where he must constantly fear harmful humans, cars and the ever present coyotes, as well as deal with scorching heat, below-freezing temperatures, rain and snow. There is no reason why Buddy can't come inside permanently. The hotel already has a pet-friendly policy, and Buddy is housebroken (he not only can use a potty box, but he also goes to a door when he wants to be let outside to relive himself). The front desk area, which is enclosed by a door, has more than enough room in which to put a cat bed.
I would stay at this hotel again, BUT I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO SAY A LITTLE SOMETHING ON BEHALF OF BUDDY. He should be able to live indoors, where he's safe and sound. When you visit the Best Western of East Ellijay -or just Ellijay in general- please be sure to insist that Buddy live a life inside. He and I thank you!
