While the Tri-Valley region is within easy commuting distance of the Bay Area and Sacramento, after a day of hiking or touring the wine or craft beer trails, it’s always nice to stay for dinner, pull into a nearby hotel and spend the night. Tri-Valley has accommodations to fit any taste or budget and by our count, over two-dozen are dog-friendly. The Hyatt House in Pleasanton even has their own resident dog who hangs out in reception.
On a budget? Tri Valley Inn & Suites near downtown Pleasanton may not have the latest in 500-count, Egyptian cotton dog beds, but it’s clean, friendly, has a $99 average daily rate and charges just $10 a night extra for canine companions. Gotta say “Woof!” to that.
Elsewhere in Pleasanton and throughout the Tri-Valley region, all the usual chains are represented. Word to the wise: some hotels don’t charge extra for pets, some charge a modest $10-$25 and others impose a non-refundable deposit or cleaning fee of as much as $150, even for a one-night stay.
Some examples: DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Pleasanton at the Club ($50 dog fee), at the intersecton of Interstates 680 and 580, is well situated for visitors to Livermore Valley Wine Country while Larkspur Landing Pleasanton ($75 per stay for dogs) is an all-suite hotel offering fully equipped kitchens and complimentary laundry facilities. Sheraton Pleasanton gets a “four paws up” from us, as it doesn’t charge extra for four-legged guests. Neither do the La Quinta Inns in Pleasanton or Livermore or the budget-priced Motel 6 properties in the same cities.
The Danville Sycamore Inn, meanwhile, enjoys a central location and has a $20 fee for pets, while Extended Stay America properties in Dublin, Livermore and Pleasanton charge $25 per night.
