Yes we were there for Memorial Day. Although it should be condemned. It's awful and the stench to match!! I would never ever stay again. I would've rather stayed in a tent honestly.

Good Morning there is no dog breed discrimination the only requirements we have are that we are notified that there will be a pet in the room and that the guest follow the pet policy we have them sign at check in.
