Do not trust this hotel’s reservation system. In August 2010 we were taking our Champion Newfoundland Dog to a show in Newfoundland. I had purposely telephoned to reserve a room because St. Jude had advertised as being ‘pet friendly’ and I had wanted to make sure they understood we would be bringing a Newfoundland Dog. I was assured I would be assigned a ground floor room. When we arrived the reception clerk said the reservation record made no mention of a dog and that all their pet rooms had been rented. This clerk had no interested in doing anything other than saying no. Another staff person eventually came out of an office and said there was another place in the town that took dogs. I returned to my van to discuss the situation with my wife. The second person came out and said that the other place had a room. I did not want to commit without seeing it. When we went there my wife was told that the last room had just been rented. We cancelled our dinner reservation at Bacaclo Restaurant and left town. Adding to my annoyance was my assumption that the photos of Newfoundland Dogs in the St. Jude lobby were used to portray friendliness.
