We love pets!!
We understand just how important furry friends are. Oakley - our treasured Shih Tzu, Tom - the biggest, baddest Tom cat in town, and Manya - the little sister British Shorthair are valuable members of our family!
We offer a special room for fellow pet lovers...but not everyone enjoys pets like we do, so here's a list of "house rules for pet guests".
House rules for pet guests...
- Call to reserve our special pet room (401-847-9794 or 800-748-6565) - only $25 per day per pet for extra cleaning - pet owner is responsible for costs if damage occurs.
- For everyone's safety, keep your pet on a leash when outside - some folks are scared of animals.
- Please pick up after your pet - we have extra plastic baggies!
- We do not offer a room refresh to pet rooms - we've learned from experience how territorial pets are. Ouch.
- Recommend you bring along a crate or carrier if you plan on leaving your pet in the room while you're out on the town.
- Leave us your cell phone number - we must be able to contact you if your pet is barking or crying or scratching when you're gone.
- Sorry, no pets at breakfast or at inside common areas - pet etiquette stipulates respect for other guests.
- Pets must have current vaccinations.
- We rarely have problems, but want to be clear - we will ask you to leave if there is any major misbehaving that impacts other guests. Mostly we find that pets who are accustomed to travel behave better than people! hee hee
- We ask each guest with a pet to understand & agree to these house rules.
