Do hotels allow dogs?

We did our first winter travel last year, leaving in January. We are from MN so both coming and going we needed to stay in hotels along the way. We really want to get another dog and are looking at a medium size one. It seemed stressful enough to try and find hotels that had room to park our 5th wheel and truck and with a dog we are just not sure how big a deal it is. Would really appreciate some feedback on this.

We lost our dog about a year ago and just now are thinking we need to get another.
Thanks.

You pretty much have to check with each hotel. Within a given brand some allow them, some don't. Some charge a fee. We've had our best results with LaQuinta.

If you have a 5th wheel, why do you need a hotel? Kind of defeats the point of having it.

Most hotels allow dogs. Many have a size (weight limit) and will charge a fee for the dog. The hotels that allow dogs have special room set aside for pets.

Do a quick search for Pet Friendly hotels. There are several websites that will provide the info you need.

Thanks for the information!
We have to winterize our 5th wheel for our cold winter here and the campgrounds coming & going aren't open at this time of the year. We returned in April and the last place we camped was I think in OK. We had 2 more nights in hotels until we were home. Too cold!

Most hotels allow dogs but charge a fee, also most hotels have parking round back for tractor trailers.

The single biggest reason we have a camper is because most hotels do not allow dogs and we could never find a good place to go on vacation. We like our dogs to be with us.

I hear LA Quinta has a mandatory pet friendly policy. But we have a cat... So not sure.
