We love to stay at this hotel because of it's location to Topaz Lake. It is not a fancy place. It's a Super 8, and typical of a Super 8 hotel. This area is conducive to fishing, camping, hiking, and in general, great outdoor living. We, just like many folks do that like this type of living, travel with their pet, or dog. They say they are pet friendly, but whenever we book a room with our pet here, we never get the same type room that we reserve online. We truly get the 3rd degree upon check in, and are threatened with huge fines if we do not declare a pet. Any hotel that is pet "friendly" should offer the same type variety of rooms to pet owners. I would suggest to the hotel that they accommodate pets just as La Quinta Inns, Ramada Inns, Staybridge Suites, Homewood Suites, Holiday Inn Express, etc. etc. Just charge us an extra refundable deposit for our pets, but give us a decent room. Also, the rooms need to be better cleaned. There are cobwebs in the corners, and the windowsills and windows are dirty. Having said that, it is still a fun place to go, and the restaurants have good food and service for that type of hotel. The views from the cafe are fantastic. There is a small casino which is fun, but very smokey. The best part about this hotel is the location as it is like a real get away and a great place to stop if traveling the 395 corridor from California to Nevada.
Leave your pet at home if you want a decent room. If you book online, book the cheapest rate if you...

Thank you for the kind words. Yes, we are the best place to stay, certainly on the lake, or the area in general. We have a select number of pet rooms and the on-line feature does not let you pick out your favorite pet room as it may already be rented. However, we have reviewed our pet room policy and allocation and have decided to open it up to over half of our room supply. We will now have over 60 hotel rooms you can choose from that will be pet friendly. Our goal is to be your "place of choice" when you travel and your comments help us stay there. With our spectacular views of the lake and surrounding mountain range, which can be seen from our hotel rooms, lounge area, both restaurants,Lakeview Coffee Shop and Steakhouse, you won't find a better way to relax and enjoy a fantastic meal. Add to all that, our full service casino and it is easy to see why we are the "place of choice" in the region. Thank you for writing,we appreciate all the feedback we can get.
