First let me say I stopped here because they describe themselves as pet friendly. If you think being interrogated about your pet your behavior, your pets behavior. And then threatened eight $200 fine if you don't disclose that you have a pet. And charging you $20 for the night, just because you want to bring your pet in your room....

We checked in on Christmas Eve & the person behind the front desk of the hotel provided a very friendly experience.

The room was clean and spacious, well-equipped and everything worked well. We waited nearly an hour to check-in after our arrival at 3:45 p.m. The quality of the plates and dinner ware for breakfast was CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP. The plates had to be doubled or tripled to hold anything and the dinner-ware bent when I tried to cut something.
