Trained service animals as defined by the ADA are welcome at all units. (Comfort, therapy and emotional support animals are not considered service animals and guests would need to choose a pet friendly unit and pay the pet fee.) Lying about an ADA service animal is a felony and will be treated as such. An emotional support or therapy animal needs to be treated as a pet.
