We just wanted to inform all our loyal and future guests that we will no longer allow medium to large sized dogs any longer. We have had a lot of complaints from guests about loud barking along with a few pet parents not obeying the leash law or the pet agreement they all sign upon check in when they bring their fur babies. So we feel it is best to put restrictions on the size. We hope you all understand that we did not make this decision in haste. We put a lot of thought in to it and that is why we are going to finish out the year allowing dogs with reservations that have already been made before it takes effect.
These restrictions will take effect 1/1/2020.
We will only allow dogs under 15 lbs. for a fee of $35.
So please be sure to plan ahead for your fur babies if you are looking to reserve with us in 2020.
We hope to see plenty of our previous guests along with new in the New Year.

We stayed at your nice hotel with a 40 pound dog a month ago. You’re right. We did hear a dog barking a lot while we were there, but it was a smaller dog that we saw and heard. Certainly it is your decision, but would like you to reconsider your decision based on weight alone. Thank you.

You reserve the right to set the rules for the hotel. However, I have a small dog and she is usually the loudest, not the big dogs.... just saying......perhaps you should remove this post and just set the dog weight limit without an explanation. I would hate for you to lose business because you are singling out the larger dog breeds.

This might be the dumbest thing I have read in a long time... you have a dog barking problem and you ban the dogs that bark the least! 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️Are you going to weigh them when they arrive!!!

That's too bad because I travel with my dogs.

Are you allowed to charge for service animals? I’d check into that...

If a business establishment did that for paying human guests the'yd be awash in lawsuits. Size does not dictate manners.

So I looked it up, under the ADA no hotel can charge extra for a true service dog or put restrictions on where they can be...someone is going to get a lawsuit if they discriminate based on this.
