          Dear Trip Advisor: the first and most important deal-breaking question travelers who have pets is when they make a reservation is DO THEYTAKE PETS. Why is it not possible to screen for this in the search. I don't care i there's a pool. if I am traveling with a dog I am not leaving it in the car. So frustrating to go through all these properties, possibly find one and then find out they don't take pets. This is why people do the "fake service dog" thing (which is crummy), but we need to find properties where our dogs can stay with us. Get it?

          Yes, the pool is outdoors. I suggest that you call the hotel directly to confirm what they provide for "breakfast".
