Amenities / Features


Pet Friendly? Yes! Pets are allowed.
Well behaved pets allowed with a small fee. They must be supervised at all times. When asked if we allow dogs at our hotel, here’s what we generally reply: “Dogs are welcome in this hotel. We’ve never had a dog that smoked in bed and set fire to the blankets. We’ve never had a dog who stole the towels, played the TV too loud or had a fight with his traveling companion. We’ve never had a dog who got drunk and broke up the furniture. So, if your dog can vouch for you, you’re welcome too!”
