Unit offsite good for dogs
Booked months ago. As we booked with two dogs owner offered us unit across the road rather than in motel as unit was fully fenced for dogs. Very nice offer. Unit was inbasement of house across from motel. Private and made up of 2 rooms. Bedroom with queen bed and couch and a bathroom. Air conditioning a bonus! Good it was fully fenced for dogs. Parking off street on drive. Bed was creeky. Very small microwave and fridge. These could have been bigger as very small. Bathroom old but everything clean and worked well. Owners very polite and easy to deal with.
