Since I read review before I decided to stay at the hotel and I found them very helpful.Those reviews and the dog friendly hotel was the main reason I stayed. I also saw that the general manager reads these reviews and that is phenominal and was another reason I stayed.
Arrived on December 17,2011 and stayed in room 607 with husband and dog.We checked in at 3pm and it was fast and pleasant. They were putting new carpet in the hotel when we arrive.
The workers had the parking lot blocked which did cause a great inconvenience. The side entry door the workers also had a board wedged in the side door which to me is a safety hazard for hotel guest. Someone that is not a hotel guest could wonder right in. After the workers left for the day the door was properly locked however that little board was left by the door which someone else could use to wedge the door open. One thing that I can say about the workers is if they were at the elevators they would let you go first and they would wait which was very considerate. Also when we arrived in the room, the door would not close properly because of the carpet not being cut properly. I call down to the desk and they immediately sent some one up to fix it.
The room was a little small but very comfortable and clean. Felt like a home away from home. The maid for that day was great because since I had a dog and needed to leave she was doing another room and stopped to come and clean the garbage and put clean towels in my room. She did it with a smile...should have got her name.
I was ever so grateful that it was pet friendly and I hope that pet owners that stay at the hotel make sure that they clean up after their pets or if someone neglect to do it please clean that up also, so it will stay pet friendly. In fact I did clean up someone else's dog poo that was left in the parking lot. They do have a area in the back for pets with plastic bags for cleanup. To tell you the truth I was a little apprehensive staying at a hotel where pets stay because I know that some pet owners are not as clean as others but I can say that I had nothing to worry about because of hotel being clean inside and out.
Since I had a pet I walked around the whole hotel and it was very clean out door. Breakfast was nice even though I am vegan the fruit and orange juice was really good. They did have a great variety of food for breakfast.The eating area was very roomy, clean and a friendly atmosphere.
Would I stay again? Yes! If it remains clean, pet friendly and the general manager keep reading these reviews I would recommend this hotel highly. One thing is the shower curtains need some improvement. They are too short....please take a look at them.....Thanks for the great visit.
