Needed a pet friendly hotel in Murphy, NC. We always stay at LaQuinta's but they were bought out by Wyndham.
I made a BIG mistake & booked thru Hotelrates com. Daddy always said, "a good education is expensive," and he was right again.
Rep was a real fast talker. Told me this Days Inn only had a few rooms left. (It's almost empty) Never said a word about additional pet fee & deposit.
Always book directly w/the hotel.
This Days Inn has NO place to decently & safely walk a dog. Grass is overgrown & full of prickly, sticky weeds. Plus we had to pay additional $ & a deposit to have a pet. This information was NOT given by hotelrates.com
Lesson learned. Never again!
