Traveling with wife and two small dogs. Stayed on floor 2, a dog friendly floor. Overlooked river and pool, but palms were in the way for a very good view of river. Executive suite, which they made by opening up two decently sized adjoining rooms: with King bed (comfortable and clean) in one, and a fully equipped sitting room with a large sleep sofa and easy chairs in the other. Both rooms had full baths (shower/tub) and both rooms had a decent flat screen HDTV. A few stains on the carpeting (I've paid a lot more for a lot more stains) but otherwise clean, clean, clean! We were able to shut our two dogs in the sitting area, while the staff cleaned the bedroom area which worked really well. (By the way, with the two separate full baths and a large hide-a-bed, this would have worked out very well for more people than the two of us.) Breakfast was motor hotel adequate, no better but no worse.
So what was the flaw? Their wi fi was down the weekend that we were there, and nobody seemed to have a clue how to fix it ( and of course their service's tech was, well, gone fishing or something.) This would not have been a problem, except that we seem to have the only room that the ethernet connection was also defunct. I had some rather pressing email that I needed to deal with. The lobby's public computer was so slow that I kept exceeding the allotted time and getting kicked off line. The desk clerk tried very hard to be helpful, by the way, but it was just not possible. She offered to switch us into the only remaining room in the hotel that was not booked through the weekend, even though it wasn't dog friendly, but the room set up was not an exec. king.
Was this a deal killer for the future? Absolutely not. I doubt if we would ever encounter that same problem again. And in spite of comments from a few other reviewers, we heard zero noise from the nearby interstate. One of the better dog friendly hotels we have stayed in.
