Lodging here is limited and some are very pricey. Clean, modern hotel in a convenient location. Room had refrigerator and microwave. Complementary breakfast was OK- waffles, cereal, toast, fruit, etc. Much better price than a shabby hotel we stayed in in Oscoda.

As far as I know... YES! You can bring your dog! But, be sure to ask of extenuating circumstances! Smile.
