I was traveling and because of the threatening weather (tornadoes) I decided to stop for the night. I had just picked up my rescue dog (miniature schnauzer) and needed a pet-friendly place that didn't charge a ridiculous fee, because this was an unplanned stop anyway. I found this hotel on a web site that rates hotels that allow pets and it was given a good review. Folks, this is THE place to stay - with or without a pet! There is no fee for pets, providing you sign a form agreeing to pay for any damages your pet causes. I was a little unsure what I would find when I arrived (some pet-friendly places can be less than the cleanest out there) but I couldn't have been happier. The desk clerk (who I talked with on the phone in order to get driving directions) was top-notch. The lobby (and the rest of the hotel) was decorated with a fresh and trendy look. I got to my room and it was nicer than the Hilton I stayed in recently; very plush and comfortable. Lots of granite and tile (which is a very good idea for a pet-friendly hotel), and there were plenty of plug-ins available for those of us who have multiple tech items that need charging. I slept like a rock (the room was insulated and therefore quiet, yay!), and then went to breakfast the next morning. As is fairly common these days, there was a do-it-yourself waffle maker, three juice choices in the dispenser, plus a steam tray of scrambled eggs, biscuits, sausage, and sausage gravy, plus cereal and pastries. Very good fare. Upon checking out, the clerk made a point of asking me about my stay and told me about the direction of La Quinta (fresher, newer buildings that are much more upscale in guest services and furnishings. I WILL be back; in fact, every time I can, I will look for La Quinta. (For the record, I had to stay at a Comfort Inn the next night because that was the only pet-friendly place, and I was charged a $25 pet fee, plus the room was more, so overall I paid $28 MORE for that room, which was so-so at best.)
