Not all pet friendly hotels & accommodations are created equal. Pet policies vary widely among pet friendly accommodations. Some hotels are only dog friendly; some pet friendly hotels only allow pets under 25 lbs., some have a 2 pet maximum, and almost all of them charge a pet fee - ranging from $10/night to a non-refundable pet deposit upwards of $100 (a.k.a. pet fee).
There are, however, some standout pet friendly hotel chains that allow your pets to stay for free.
