Am important fact to remember when booking at a pet friendly hotel is to ask about size restrictions. Whether you have a tea-cup Chihuahua or a Great Dane, double check on weight limits at the property.

All Breeds

Red Flag Alert!  If you are inquiring at a pet friendly hotel and they have restrictions on breeds, might want to cross that locale off your list.  Certain states have laws against specific breeds and you will want to know if the hotel is discriminatory to your pup.

Hotel: you want to bring your dog?  Okay!  That will be an additional charge of $250 + a cleaning fee of $100. Nope, not going to do that!  Bringing your pup along for vacay shouldn’t break the bank.  There are plenty of pet friendly hotels that will accommodate your fur kid without all the extra fees.
