If you are looking for simply a pet friendly place to sleep then this is fine, but don't expect any "frills," and by that I mean the most basic of amenities, even the ones they boast about in their advertising.
For starters, the faucet literally fell off of the kitchen sink the first time we touched it. We called downstairs and advised the front desk, and they told us maintenance would be by the following day to take care of it. No one ever came.
Housekeeping didn't come once in our 3 day stay. This meant running out of soap, shampoo, towels, coffee packets (a whole other story...) etc...the lobby was happy to provide them when we asked, but that's not the point.
Lastly, the fancy coffee machine in the lobby they are so proud of, it's only open between 7-9am, so no sleeping in you guys! On top of that, I went down one morning at 8am - I was going to get my wife a mochachino, her favourite. It was her birthday and she was sleeping in. Well, I get downstairs and the machine isn't even turned on, and its in plain view of the front desk, with a giant closed sign on it. I ask the front desk if its broken and she tells me no it's just not turned on and she'll call someone to do it. Eventually someone does, but the machine takes 40 minutes or so to heat up.I don't get it, if the machine is open between 7-9, and it takes so long to heat up, wouldn't you get it started around 6am? Anyway, I gave up, went next door and spent the $12.50 for a couple coffees - they were good, Mount Curee Coffee Co. - I recommend them, not Summit Lodge.
