- DAYLIGHT SAVINGS
Its time to “fall back” due to DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME ENDING.
When you go to bed Saturday night November 5th remember to change your clocks back 1 hour.
The hotel industry continues to change and evolve with some properties beginning to offer pet rooms and services. Though several of the owners and staff of the Best Western Coral Hills have pets as well, the property currently does NOT accept pets. This is mainly out of consideration for our guests who have severe allergies to pet dander.
For our guests traveling with pets we recommend Red Rock Pet Resort located on 800 East just off St. George Boulevard and only 6 blocks from the hotel. They have an outstanding staff, facility and have security provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
