Fresh in from another adventure out west. The Black Dog Inn was great as always! We had originally planned to stay for a lengthy tour of the Rockies and to do some bear fishing and even a little rustic treepunching, but our plans were limited by the weather. No worries, the Black Dog had everything we needed to stay entertained...

A little unsettling to find the tiniest room with the tiniest standing shower ever! ESPECIALLY when i read other reviews of the bathrooms being spacious and nice. which the doors were broken and made a huge crashing bang when opened. false advertising of having plasma screen tvs and satelite tv, the tv is an old box tv with 8 channels!...

This hotel does not state anywhere online nor did they advise me during my reservation phone conversation that they have a 48 hour cancellation policy. When I had to cancel due to unforseen events they were very rude and hung up on me and immediately charged my credit card for the upcoming stay.

The Black Dog Inn would like to respond to this review, as there are many incorrectly stated items mentioned. Firstly, it should be known that the reviewer cancelled with less than 48 hours notice, which is hotel policy, as stated on our reservations web page. He was advised that unfortunately cancellations of less than 48 hours are charged for one...

I booked this place online as part of a getaway my mom and I took to the Rockies. We're the cheap kind of travelers. When we got there the owner let us upgrade the room to one of their King size rooms, because we picked the smallest room orginally. She also gave us a discount on the room since we...

Manager became emotionally stressed out to the point of seeming fragile when asked for what would be routine in other hotels even in this small scale, very local accomodation ,There are many better options withis a few miles in the same price category.

Management response:

I apologize if the manager was not accommodating to your needs however as I understand the situation, there was a need to store a large item while you had already checked out. As my manager had explained we do not not have the space for this type of request. I am sorry for this inconvenience and hope that you can...

Quite frankly, when we made the reservations for the night it was because nothing was available in Steamboat Springs for a resonable fee. Then when we arrived and saw that the town of Phippsburg, Co. was no more than a very simple crossroads, we thought well here we go again. We had just spent the previous night at a motel...

I've travelled through Phippsburg countless times and finally decided to try staying overnight in town. The Black Dog Inn is definitely not a full service motel. You can't even get in the building before 3:00 if you're not already checked in. But the Inn is clean, comfortable, and very friendly. Not to mention that the wall art in the lobby...

We came for Hockey games in nearby Oak Creek. We have stayed there twice in the last month. Rooms were clean and owners were very nice. It would have been better if we had won all of our games. We will be back next Hockey season.

This was a very wonderful, small hotel. The owners were extremely nice and helpful with our stay (and dogs)! They have a lovely room setup with kitchen and plenty of space for an individual or a family. The outdoor dog run was absolutely wonderful. Super close to Steamboat and extremely easy access off the high way! The bathtubs are to...
