Helpful Vacation Travel Tips To Find A Pet-Friendly Hotel

Posted on: 20 December 2021


Traveling provides a great getaway and a fun adventure to check out sites and attractions in other states and areas. However, if you want to bring your pet with you on your trip, you will need to find a pet-friendly hotel where they will be welcomed and comfortable. The following provides you with some helpful tips to aid you in the process to find a pet-friendly hotel while traveling with your pet.

Complete Your Search

As soon as you know you are going to be traveling with your pet, start searching for a hotel that is going to allow you to bring them along. You can start out your search via an online site search, which usually provides you to request all hotels that have a pet-friendly service. This will bring up a list of all hotels that match this criterion. However, you can also check for hotels that may not specify on their website if they allow pets in their rooms. 

Some hotels will allow for pets and are pet-tolerant, but may not be registered pet-friendly hotels. In this situation, you would need to call the hotel's front desk or customer service agents to ask specifically about pets in their room. You can also email your pet-related questions to the hotel staff to find out for sure so you can make arrangements and book your hotel room.

Check Into Hotel Pet Policies

Once you have found a hotel that allows pets inside and in their rooms, you will need to check out their specific regulations so you can abide by them during your stay. In addition to keeping a pet in your room, some hotels, for example, will allow you to bring your pet with you down into the lobby and the other ground floor amenities. 

Additionally, you will also want to make sure you can leave your pet in the room alone while you go out. Or, for example, when you keep your pet in the room, do you need to keep them in a kennel or can they roam freely in the room? These details are important so you aren't at risk of being kicked out of the hotel. 

Look For Pet Amenities

When you arrive at the hotel, will the room come with a water and food dish for your pet or will you need to bring them with you? This question among others, such as where will your pet sleep, are important details you need to inquire about. Find out if there is a pet play area outside where you can let them run unleashed, or if the hotel provides a dog service spa for your pet to get pampered.
