    Great location

    Great location and close to a dog park on the river walk. They also charged my car while staying there.

    Great location

    Typical low end hotel. No coffee. Pretty clean! Hand sanitizers were all empty!

    Nice and clean hotel with great location for food. Not a great place to take a dog out to bathroom without expecting it to be a 1/2 mile walk. Not a problem during the day, but frustrating in the middle of the night. Otherwise a great place to stay.

    Dog friendly but needs a good clean

    Extremely dog friendly since there is no fee and everyone working there was so nice to our little girl, but the hotel itself needs some work. Our room was extremely dirty with a thick layer of dust all over and the front of the desk was hanging off. There was no soap in the bathroom and the walls are paper thin so you can hear everything going on around you. Although the location was great and perfect for dogs, this place was not worth the price at all and we would never stay there again.

    Great location!

    We stayed on the 4th floor and it was quiet. When you walk the dog, there us a park with nice grass both ways and a beautiful river walk! There was plenty of room for a dog crate in the room and the staff and guests were dog friendly!

    Love everything about the hotel but the noise!

    This hotel is super pet friendly and I love that! All of the staff is friendly. Great views, bar and food on site. As mentioned in other reviews the hallways outside of the rooms could use a vacuuming but overall I felt like the hotel was very clean. The only negative is someone left their dogs in their room unattended and they barked until 12:30am. We didn’t call and complain because the road noise was so loud too that it wouldn’t have even mattered. We could hear sirens and cars speeding by all night. I would stay here again but definitely being a good white noise machine.

    Would not recommend

    Other than location, I did not like this hotel. The rooms were small, the hallways were dirty, and it took a full 24 hours to get it cleaned even after I mentioned it to the front desk. The front desk staff and valet were always friendly and helpful. There is very limited options for breakfast, bagels wrapped in plastic and yogurt. When I left the housekeeping staff wouldn’t move their cart so I could get in and out of my room with my cart. The hotel was pretty run down in my opinion, the carpet had stains and the walls needed painting.

    Stay HERE!

    Felt very welcomed with bones out in the lobby for the pups and a huge grass area right down the block

    Perfect location in the center of the city

    Great service!

    The hotel is very cool and artsy with very dog friendly. However the walls are super thin and the hotel is noisy. You can easily hear other guests alarm clocks for example. Our stay was great and the location and the pool are amazing but we would not stay during a busy time. Also you have to walk at least 3-4 minutes to get to any grass for your dog to relieve itself. The hotel does not have a pet area. Otherwise great but very noisy! The staff are polite at best, not friendly.

    Great puppy hotel

    We sat on the big couch in the lobby with our lab and drank wine for a bit. Love the rooms. Everyone is so nice. No pet fee. They will give you a dog bed and treats if you ask.

    Rude, rude front desk worker!

    She was working on 27 October, 2019. I’m the one that normally gives positive feedback, but this woman should not be working in a hotel!
