All Work And No Play Makes Jack... The Hardest Working Hotel Dog In Texas
Jack and Marcus
If there’s anything that’ll make us fall for a hotel, it’s a hotel pet. And although Norman the Scooter Dog is a tough cute-hotel-doggy act to follow, here’s a worthy successor: Jack, the delectable Australian Shepherd here, who lives at the Lone Star Court, an old-motel-turned-retro-hotel in Austin.
Jack actually lives on site – above the front office with his GM roommate, Marcus Latner. But unlike you and me, Jack actually likes his roommate – so he spends the day on property, doing whatever Marcus is doing. Except, that is, when he’s chowing down on a deer antler (one that Marcus especially got for him, rather than the antler table lamps in the rooms).
Lone Star Court isn’t quite a pet-friendly hotel – animals are allowed in the public areas, but not in the bedrooms, which are hipster-retro (it’s a new-build motel, and rocks the retro motor hotel vibe). Rates start at $169, Jack sightings guaranteed.
