When we plan a whole family vacation, one big consideration is finding dog friendly hotels - after all, my Golden Retriever is an integral member of the family! A dog friendly motel or hotel is key in truly enjoying a vacation with your canine companion. A truly dog friendly hotel doesn't simply allow your dog to stay with you -- rather, it welcomes your dog as a guest too, and gives thought to the little things that make your time with your dog more enjoyable.
I am just starting out on this task of collecting a large listing of hotels where you can enjoy a vacation with your dog. You can see the list I currently have by scrolling down a bit. To help me grow this list, if you have had any experiences with any such hotels, we would love to hear about them. Tell us about your experience of a hotel stay with your dog!
