My fiancee and I stayed here with our dog this past weekend, and we loved it! We needed a place that would let us bring our dog, was within walking distance of the beach, and wasn't insanely expensive, and Laughing Horse Lodge was all three.
We stayed in the smallest unit, and efficiency called the Bridle Sweet, and were very pleased with all the amenities. It had a flatscreen TV with DVD player (and we brought our blu-ray to hook up to it), a small but useful fridge/freezer (it has its own freezer section, instead of a freezer shelf like most tiny fridges), a microwave, and a coffee pot. There was also a little breakfast table right in front of a huge window.
The bed was amazing b/c it had a memory foam mattress pad--my fiancee had the best night's sleep in the last year, and we're planning to go buy our own mattress pad now. Haha!
The maid service is do-it-yourself, which is just fine by me, as it keeps the cost down. I didn't feel that the place was lacking at all because of it. If you want fresh towels and sheets, all you have to do is bring the old ones to the front office, and they'll replace them.
The woman in the front office (I'm not sure if she was one of the owners or not) was also very friendly and helpful and fun to talk to.
Overall, it was a great experience, and we're going back as soon as we can!
