Pet Friendly Hotels Help

We are considering a car trip from Fort Worth to Los Angeles - FW will stay home.

We have two small Shih Tzu's and am looking for Pet Friendly Hotels.

I Goggled and found a site called Official Pet Hotels but the site doesn't really explain how their system works - I can't determine if we plan where our overnight stays will be and they tell what PF hotels are available there or if they help with our itinerary. Of course they don't list a phone number where you can talk to a person. I emailed them,but no reply yet.

I also found a Marriott site that lists their PF locations,but haven't done anymore research.

Anyone used any of these sites to locate PF hotels or how have you found any if you didn't stay overnight if your RV?

We just look for where we want to stop and then do a search of all the hotel/motels in the area until we find on that is pet friendly.
Beware that most charge extra for cleaning up front.

I'm thinking that's the best and probably cheapest way to find them. The cleaning charge could be a rip off though,especially since they don't mess in our house.

I heard that more hotels/lodging places are allowing pets.

Us baby boomers are to blame for that, you no like our fur kids you no need our monies.

Rip off or other wise you have to pay it, some may give it back after an inspection of the room but I doubt it.

An other thing is you can not leave your pet in the room unattended you must be there or take your pet with ya.

We had to make a trip to St. Pete, FL for a family funeral a few months ago and wanted to take Fred with us.

We stayed in a La Quinta there. Three story hotel and the 3rd floor was pet friendly.

AWESOME people! Fred would stroll onto that elevator and then thru the lobby like he owned that place!

The front desk people were *very* pet friendly, but were also very strong with their rules against barkers. One guy had a lab he left in the hotel room alone all day and the dog barked unceasingly. That owner was packing up to find another hotel that evening.

Oh, and there were no extra charges, no pet deposit and no extra upfront cleaning charge.

There was *no* way you could tell our room was pet friendly either.

We were allowed to leave Fred in the room alone, and we gave them our cell phone number in case he became a problem.

Here's a few - Los Angeles Pet Friendly Hotels - Official Los Angeles Pet Hotels

Looks like many have a pet fee. Laquita is a good option too.

2 years ago, while I was traveling by car [no trailer], I stayed at Motel 6 and Red Roof Inn....all of their motels are pet friendly and don't charge extra.... that was 2 years ago, but I would assume it is still the same.

Personally, I found that the Red Roof Inns were a little nicer.

Never thought about them - their web site says 1 pet per family and we have 2. In addition,nothing in NM or CO.

But thanks again.

We found that most Best Westerns were pet friendly. This was 7 - 8 years ago so things may have changed.

Very happy with LaQuinta hotels with the pet friendly policy. No deposit, no extra fees and had great rooms. Just sign an agreement with the rules on it.
