"Best Pet Friendly Hotel."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Upbeat staff, attentive to your needs.Good value for money, usually do not find microwave and refrigerator in a pet friendly hotel with very competitive rates. I will always book the next trip through this part of the State. The guy who handles breakfast goes all out to make it a good experience.
