Many moderate and budget-priced lodging brands welcome pets, but since some properties are individually owned, fees and policies vary by location. Not all Best Westerns
are dog-friendly, for example. But more than 1,000 nationwide are, and an online search function
makes finding one a snap. La Quinta Inns and Suites
, always clean and comfortable, welcomes pets at most of its 700-plus locations, often with no extra charge. And while they might not be sexy, it's good to know that at Motel 6
, the light is always on for canine travelers, with no fees or deposits required. A bonus when booking online: Mention a promotional code offered through the American Kennel Club
and get 10 percent off your stay.
