We're happy to see you enjoyed our motel overall -- especially for the location, so it's disappointing that our pet fee left such a poor impression. As you know, most places don't allow pets at all. We wanted to offer than convenience, but the fee is necessary to cover extra cleaning of the room and any damage that may be incurred. Even without carpets, pets leave behind hair and scents that could affect future guests and their own pets. We hope you can understand, and that this won't prevent you from staying with us again. Kindly, Angie & Bill R.- Owners
