Service Animals may stay with their owners in any room of the Inn at no extra charge and accompany them into the public areas providing they meet the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) definition of Service Animals.
Under the ADA, a service animal is defined as a dog that has been individually trained “to do work or perform tasks” for an individual with a disability. The task(s) performed by the dog must be directly related to the person’s disability.
To “do work or perform tasks” means that the dog must be trained to take a specific action when needed to assist the person with a disability. For example, a person with diabetes may have a dog that is trained to alert him when his blood sugar reaches high or low levels. A person with depression may have a dog that is trained to remind her to take her medication. Or, a person who has epilepsy may have a dog that is trained to detect the onset of a seizure and then help the person remain safe during the seizure.
Emotional Support Animals (ESA’s) or therapy dogs are not considered Service Animals and may only stay in dog-friendly rooms and may not enter the public areas of the Inn.
Should you be traveling with a Service Animal, please let us know in advance so we can clarify any questions you may have and that we can make sure that you and your Service Animal are comfortable and well looked after.
