3/5 Okay

The room I stayed in was entirely carpeted, which seems an odd choice for "pet-friendly". The first thing my dogs did was knock over their water bowl, and I could not mop it up. I could have had four adults in my room for the same price as one, but there's a per-pet, per night "pet fee" on top of a "pet cleaning charge" which puts a more "money-hungry" spin on the "pet-friendly" concept. There was a very lovely, large pet yard/horseshoe pitch out back that was not very securely fenced, so on-leash visits only. I chose the Skimmerhorn Inn because it was the only pet-friendly motel on Expedia in the Creston area that wasn't right downtown, and a two-night stay cost slightly more than double what I paid for a two-night stay in Cranbrook.
