As repeat visitors we knew pretty much what to expect but this was our first trip with our recent shelter adoptee. The website said to call to get the pet rate but it was $10 more than the prices on their website - so they gave us the internet price (and there is a one-time $20 pet fee). Thanks! Greeted with doggy biscuits and guidelines (keep 'em on leash, where to walk, etc.) and two poopy pick up bags (more available upon request), we headed to the room. The pet-friendly rooms are only the dbl queen rooms but that's okay. The new bathroom remodels make these rooms so much better than before. The two best things for doggies are: the walking trail all the way to the lake (where we saw coyote, quail, jackrabbits, squirrels and bunny rabbits as well as other birds) and the dog wash across the street at the RV park they also own. Coming back from swimming in the lake and rolling in the sand, ugh, we headed to the self-serve dog wash. Phenomenal (for me, she hated it)! $7 for 12 minutes includes all shampoos, conditioner, rinsing and drying. Jack in the bar was wonderful and attentive as always. Great wine list for the area. All staff was courteous and helpful and beyond pleasant.
