Hotels Becoming More Welcoming to Pets
If you are a pet lover, then you know that finding hotels that allow dogs and other pets can be difficult. Fortunately, times are changing and more hotel properties are opening their doors to pets.
Hotels and Even Casinos Are Becoming More Pet Friendly
Hotels are finally wising up and offering guests with pets more options for their overnight stays. Even major chains like Courtyard by Marriott and Sheraton Hotels are accepting pets with most having a modest weight restriction. With that said be aware that pet fees can be high with Sheraton charging $100 for their pet fee.
If you are traveling to casino destinations, you should know that you will find more properties offering accommodations for your pet. If you happen to be in an area with a Caesars Entertainment owned property, you are in luck as every Caesars property will allow up to two pets that weight 50 pounds or under as part of their PetStay program.
Some properties, like the Flamingo in Las Vegas have pet services such as dog walking, grooming, and even veterinary services. For more on an individual properties services, call your desired casino destination and ask to speak to hotel services.
But I’m On a Budget
For those of you that like to travel but also like to save money on your travel, you still have options for your pet. Petside.com ranked the top five budget chains that accept pets and your best bets are Motel 6, La Quinta Inns & Suites, Red Roof Inn, Best Western, and Candlewood Suites.
Out of those five, Motel 6, La Quinta, and Red Roof all allow pets without any additional fees. That is the good news. One the flip side, sometimes you will have to sacrifice being able to bring your pet with you for a hotel quality and overall safety.
With that said, Best Western and Candlewood Suites are two chains that both accept pets for a nominal pet fee. Both chains are famous for quality, especially Candlewood Suites. Candlewood Suites offers suites with a full kitchen and seating areas, so these would be perfect for pets who love to run around and play.
