Two in a Motel

We are going on a little road trip and will get a motel room somewhere along the way. No plans, just wandering. So I am wondering, what is the etiquette with two dogs when booking a motel room? Of course, if it's No Dogs Allowed we will move on. What are your experiences?

Thanks,
Suzy

I stayed in a dog-friendly hotel in Ohio for the HALO picnic. Didn't have any problems at all.

Suzy, I remember once when my DDIL was trying to sneak her dog into a hotel room. The dog weighed about 25 lbs and was a pup with a very long shepherd-like nose. She had it cradled in her arms, wrapped in a blanket like a baby. I was laughing so hard at the LONG Long furry muzzle sticking straight up out of the blanket. You have to picture it, lol.

Look for a Residence Inn. They LOVE dogs!

Suzy- I like the La Quintas they all take dogs with no fee and there isn't a how many/weight policy, etc. What you can do that helped us was grab a traveling guide on the exits and you have the phone numbers so you can call ahead and find out what takes dogs and what is available. Same thing if you have a gps. My navigon lists the hotels in any city and you can phone ahead if you want.

Suzy...I am jealous... DH and I love to just head out and go wherever the road leads. Those are the best vacations. We ride till we are ready to come home. Hopefully we will be leaving in 5 or 6 weeks to wander around also. Have a wonderful times with your DH and furkids!!

I motel 6 eveywhere with my fur babies. No fee and it works pretty well. The best motel 6 we stayed at was at Lake Tahoe.

Good luck!

We just stayed in Lake Placid with Gryff this weekend. It was his first hotel experience and it was great. The rules were that the dog had to be in a crate if we weren't in the room, but we didn't do it. We had the crate just for show. When we left for meals, we put the DND sign on the door. The maid cleaned up when we were out with Gryff.

We haven't had any problems taking the dogs with us on vacation. We have stayed at pet friendly motels, hotels and even spas. Some will allow you to leave the dogs in the rooms if they are crated, and others you can not leave the dogs if you are not in the room.

Sometimes it takes a little juggling with meals, but we just call room service or get take-out.
