I participated in a triathlon, and this hotel was about a mile from the venue. It's hard to find hotels that close to events that don't cost an arm and a leg.
It was a pet friendly hotel, and the
only issue we had was the day we left, the people across the hall left their dog in the room and it barked non-stop. I'm not sure what the hotel policy is on that, but we did mention it to the front desk.
The only slight criticism of have is, it would have been nice if they had put out bananas or something early on Sunday for the triathlon participants who were leaving before breakfast started. While the hotel is never under any obligation to do so, I've stayed at other hotels who have. [Less]
