Dog-Friendly Lodging

Traveling with your dog can be a lot of fun until you try finding a hotel that will welcome you and your pooch. To make it a little bit easier, I’ve scoured the island for the most dog-friendly accommodations, and put together this list. Our Dog-Friendly Lodging directory lists those establishments that welcome dogs, along with their detailed pet policies and fees. This is no recycled list of dog-friendly hotels that is so commonplace on the web. Each of these establishments has been individually contacted to inquire about their policies toward dogs, and I have found a few who I haven’t contacted, but their listings clearly state that pets will be considered.  In your travels, if you should come upon some dog-friendly establishment not listed here, or one that has changed their policies, please contact me and let me know. I try hard to keep this list updated on a monthly basis, but as you can imagine, these policies tend to change without notice, so be sure to contact the establishment before traveling.  ***Please contact the owner or property management company in the listing to book reservations.  We do not handle reservations.***
