    Would stay again!

    No special treatment but comfortable room. Happy to be able to bring our dogs! Wish there was a specified outdoor pet area.

    My old dog Gracie and I had a blast staying here. She loved sniffing all the greenery around the building and at a nearby park. It’s in a great, walkable neighborhood and near a grocery. There was a water and food bowl waiting for us in our room when we arrived! Overall, smooth and easy experience. Highly recommend.

    Sweet hosts

    Everyone was very understanding. I think they could tell the change of scenery was a bit stressful for my boy, Thorin. Even room service called instead of knocking on the door, alerting him.

    Fun Hotel

    Very large property. Clean and comfortable. Was not able to try their food but all else was good.
