|A warm welcome for my two dogs.|
|Loved this on-site dog park. Sorry about the smudge.|
|Nice view, huh?|
|The hotel created a sunset vista view point, as you might have guessed from the sign.|
|Here's the view you can get from your hike that starts at the hotel. It was cloudy on the day I went up there.|
The hotel has incredible views from the pool. I also liked the location. You're close to downtown without having to deal with the traffic.
|Happy dogs on the bed!|
From the roadside, the hotel looks a little run down. But inside, the rooms are clean and modern. Although the bed felt a little old and a tad lumpy--I'm a hotel bed connoisseur--but every other detail felt right. For the price and location, it would be hard to top this hotel.
Bonus: Arabella's most famous attraction is Elote Cafe. The Mexican food here is phenomenal. I've never had anything I didn't like. Try the elote--a sweet and spicy corn dish that you can scoop up with chips. The margaritas are also pretty damn tasty. You'll usually have to wait for a table, but it's well worth it.
