My husband and I have always taken in rescue dogs, and they are our primary focus when we travel. it's difficult because we take in the young with medical issues or the old ones who had humans who have either left them because of difficult situations or their humans died. So, the dogs who are with us are problem children because of their prior lives. And though I like nice things and nice hotels, we often will stay at cheaper motels because it's already a ruckus by the time we get there, and so our traveling circus goes unnoticed.
We stayed at this Best Western with our wayward rescue Chihuahua, Mouse, because it was the motel closest to the bike shop where I had purchased a bike I was picking up. We were a little worried because the Chihuahua can bark, be defiant as in running out the motel door and under a moving pick up at a Motel 6, or she consumes some stray bit of garbage she finds in the motel room and vomits.
None of her bad behavior showed up, and you know why? It was the Best Western. It was super quiet with well insulated rooms. The rooms were immaculate. No stray bits of stuff for her to randomly eat off the floor. And we were right by the door so I could take her out quickly in the middle of the night when she had to use the bathroom. Also, Best Western had complimentary poop bags for Mouse.
And yes, the breakfast was yummy. And yes, the staff was super nice. But of course, we are all about the Chihuahua. We're just two old foggies wandering around with a pint sized tornado, who never acted better, all because she loved the Best Western and they showed her some love back.
Pet fee is extra $, but Mouse is worth it. less
