    I had been searching for a place that was pet friendly and they were so accommodating. They were very reasonable priced and had amazing customer service. The hotel room itself was clean and a nice size. Had a fantastic anniversary here. Will definitely come again.

    We were there over the winter holiday and they wouldn't let us check in early. Our room wasn't ready so they assigned us to a different one. I think we were checked in and our too about 3:30. We got there a little before 3.
