Plan Your Hurricane Getaway: Pet-Friendly Hotels

If you're making hurricane evacuation plans, here's a list of pet-friendly hotels that will welcome your furry friends. It's a good idea to call the hotel you wish to stay at directly to ensure pet-friendly rooms are available and to find out what, if any, pet fees are required. 

Red Roof Inn

Red Roof Inn has over 500 properties and only a handful don't allow dogs due to state laws. Red Roof in does not require a pet deposit or charge a pet fee. They allow one dog per room. Learn more at their dedicated website for dog owners.

La Quinta Inns & Suites 

La Quinta Inns & Suites has 870 locations, the majority of which are pet-friendly. They don't ask for a security deposit or charge a pet fee, and they allow up to two dogs per room. During your stay, your furry friend must be on a leash or in a carrier when walking through your hotel. You can review the La Quinta pet policy here

Best Western

Best Western has over 1,000 pet-friendly locations across the U.S. They charge up to $20 per day per room for pets with a maximum fee of $100 for one week. Some Best Western properties request a refundable pet deposit of up to $50 per stay. Like most pet-friendly hotels, Best Western suggests contacting individual hotels directly to get their local pet policy. 
Motel 6
Motel 6 allows two pets per room. Pet fees vary by location. Call ahead for hotel specifics. 

Choice Hotels

Choice Hotels has over 2500 pet-friendly locations in the U.S. Pet fees and restrictions vary by location. 

Home2 Suites

Home2 Suites allows two pets per room and size limitations vary from property to property. They also charge a pet fee. Call the location you'd like to stay at for specifics

Marriott

Marriott has over 1,600 pet-friendly hotels. Check with specific locations for fees and restrictions.  


Kimpton Hotels

If you're looking for a more upscale hotel for you and your fur-baby, take a look at Kimpton. They do not charge pet fees and there's no limit to the number of dogs allowed.  

Loews Hotels & Resorts

Another luxury hotel that makes a big deal about little dogs is Loews Hotels & Resorts. According to their pet page, Loews allows up to two pets per room and they do have a pet fee that varies by property, so call ahead.


Don't Forget BringFido.

BringFido is a great resource when traveling with your little dog. Use it to find dog-friendly lodging, including hotels, bed & breakfasts and vacation rentals. The BringFido mobile app uses your locations to help you track down dog-friendly restaurants and attractions. 

Book Directly With Your Hotel of Choice.

We suggest you always make your reservations at the hotel you want to stay at rather than using a travel site like Expedia or Travelocity. Many hotels have a limited number of pet-friendly rooms, so reserving your room directly with an individual hotel reduces the risk of surprises when you check in.

Also, many hotels will relax pet policies in light of emergency evacuations, which is one more reason to call specific properties to reserve a room.

Before You Leave

As you prepare to evacuate, be sure to pack your furry sidekick's current vaccine records, any special dietary needs or medicines. Be sure to pack food for a few days as well.
