Well within the context of the hotel the restrictions are stupid. Let me put it this way, these are like the exception places that explicitly allow dogs to begin with. So think of the POV of the dog owner, who now has to go down a mesh sieve of restrictions to find out of his dog is compliant at a hotel that is going DOGS WELCOME (well, kinda sorta) .
Most places ban them and im fine with that. Actually I ran into a hilarious thing on my trip to NC and FL last fall. I went to Wilmington NC and pulled into the wrong hotel because theyre right next to each other. Same chain even I think just different branding. I said to the lady at the desk "oh im sorry im at the wrong place" when she couldnt find my room. Out of curiousity I asked her what the rates are like compared to the other place. She basically said "Well, theyre close, but this one doesnt allow dogs, so people without dogs tend to like coming over here better." probably beause it doenst stink. Thankfully I ended up on a non dog floor at the other place, but basically like the entire first 2 floors of that place smelled like wet dog including the elevators.
