Pets at the Residence Inn properties

I recently just finished a 6 month stay at a Residence Inn property.  When I first moved in there were only a couple of guests with pets.   Now the location has become a full blown kennel.  I could see an acceptable pet policy in an oversized property where pet owners could be separated from guests who prefer not to have them but the inner-mingling is going to prove to be problematic in the long run.   Moreover, some pet owners just won't be respectful--dogs running around unleashed, no courtesy granted to guests when going in and out of the doors, excessive barking/growling, not using the designated pet areas and the list goes on.  Everyone in the location thinks their pet is the best, but are you really a responsible pet owner if you leave  them unattended in a hotel room all day while off to work you go??  I asked the manager about placing pet owners in a specific section of the hotel, away from guests who don't have pets and he replied that due to the multiple room types in the property it wasn't possible.   Hmmmm.  I wonder how long it will be before a property that doesn't accept pets becomes the new place to stay.

 

Especially since there were more non-pet owners at this property than ones who owned them.   Marriott should address this issue.

    Just stayed at the Residence Inn in Sandestin, Florida and it was really off season but I did not notice the same thing you did.  There was one dog barking but could only hear it in the hall but not in the room.  So at least off season I guess it depends on the property.
