Pet-Friendly Hotels



Leaders in Pet-Friendly Hotels

At Best Western Hotels® & Resorts, we know your pet is an extension of your family; one that you don’t want to leave behind when you travel.

With more than 1,600 pet-friendly hotels across the U.S., Canada, and the Caribbean, you and your pet will be sure to find a comfortable home away from home.

Some pet-friendly hotels offer dedicated places to walk your dog, waste facilities, and will provide recommendations on pet-friendly parks, stores, and even pet-friendly restaurants.

Best Western is pleased to welcome dogs to many of our hotels. Many hotels will accept cats, birds and other small animals. Please verify with the hotel prior to your stay as policies vary by hotel. 

  • Best Western pet-friendly hotels allow up to two domestic dogs in a rented room, with a maximum size of 80 lbs. per animal. Other pet types such as cats, birds, monkeys, snakes, or other animals are allowed at the discretion of each property and require prior approval.
  • There may be a maximum charge of $20 per day for each room with a pet or multiple pets, or a maximum charge per week of $100. A refundable damage deposit of up to $50 per stay may be required of all guests with a pet.
  • When making your reservation at a pet-friendly hotel, it is recommended that you call the hotel directly if you have specific pet related questions and to guarantee availability of a pet-friendly room.

Top Tips When Traveling With Your Pets

Prepare For The Trip

  • Research basic information about pet-friendly hotels and make reservations in advance.
  • Visit your vet to get a health certificate and proof of any necessary shots, and any medication your pet needs. For air travel, you need a health certificate issued within 10 days of your trip.
  • Make sure your pet has the proper ID, including a collar with a current ID tag.

Pack Smart

Don’t forget any of these pet-friendly necessities:

  • Crate or carrier labeled with your name and contact information, as well as marked "Live Animals" for air travel
  • Eating/drinking bowls
  • Pooper scooper/litter box/plastic bags
  • Extra leash/collar
  • Treats and Toys
  • First aid supplies (bandages, ointment, medications, etc.)


  • Once you arrive, take your pet on a long walk to stretch their legs, drain their energy and enjoy the property.
  • Allow your pet to get comfortable in the new space.
