Service dogs are welcomed and accepted as required by law, per the American Disabilities Act*.
We have a few dog-friendly rooms:
It is necessary to note the number and size of the dogs when booking.
Due to insurance, some breeds are restricted. (You know which ones)
There is a one-time pet cleaning fee of $35, or $70 for two dogs. We reserve the right to charge for damage and/or extraordinary cleaning necessitated by having a pet in the room, including evidence of dogs on furniture or beds.
No more than 2 dogs per room.
Due to insurance and Florida health code regulations, non-service dogs are restricted to the guestroom and must be crated while in the room.
St Augustine is a wonderful dog-friendly city. Dogs are welcomed at most restaurants that have outdoor seating; (a list CLICK HERE) but by law, you must: Hold, and keep the dog on, a leash; No barking; and you must Pick-up after your dog.
There also are wonderful St Augustine pet lodges, pet sitters, and kennels near by if needed.
*Service animals are defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Service animals are working animals. They are not pets. Further, the task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability, and shared with the Innkeeper.
Sorry, a dog whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.
