The exterior of a wooden dog steps outside a hotel in Santiago, Chile, on Jan. 1, 2018.

The stairs also featured a lighted Christmas tree, an image of Santa Claus and the word “Pancho Villa” on the outside.

A sign in Spanish reads “Pancake” in the window of a room in the Hotel Santa Maria de Santiago.

A man in a red hat and coat came to greet guests and make sure they were seated in the room, said Carlos Castaneda, Santa Rosario’s chief operating officer.

The steps were removed last month after residents complained about the noise they made, said Maria Maria Carcamo, Santa Barbara County’s public works director.

The steps are gone but the hotel remains decorated with colorful holiday decorations and a Christmas tree.
