    Great Location

    Located between the Boardwalk and Dog Beach, this place is a great home away from home. Our pet was welcomed here and had a great time.

    Plenty of space, no concerns of having a dog, and right in the middle of the Boardwalk and Dog Beach...

    Great location!

    It was O.7 miles away from Lighthouse Field State Park where dogs are off leash! My dog loved chasing the waves! The room is neat and clean; parking is easy. Shower handle could be replaced with something simpler. Very pleasant front desk staff.

    Amazing Stay in a Hidden Gem

    My two pups and I had an amazing time at this beautiful inn - everything was very clean and tidy, and they had hot and cold beverages throughout the day until 10pm, as well as snacks. A little dog area with bags was also provided. A great place to stay on a quick business trip or for a couple with pups. Not glitz and glam, but boneworthy! Also, pet policy was very inexpensive, and all of the staff were really kind and sweet to the doggies! Loved our stay.
