I’m always looking for dog-friendly places to stay when I’m planning my family vacations. I don’t love the idea of leaving my dog behind, and besides, I want a vacation that includes the WHOLE family! Many years ago, a pet-friendly hotel meant that they’d accept your dog but would charge you a hefty “cleaning” fee for the privilege. Now, pet-friendly actually means just that! Tons of places not only allow your dog to stay with you but actually welcome them with the same enthusiasm as they do the rest of your family. Check out a few of our favorite dog-friendly places to stay!
