There are thousands of hotels, motels, and inns across the United States that accept guests with pets. Most hotels set their own policies, so it is important to call ahead and ask if pets are permitted and if there is a size limit and/or extra charge.
Pet-friendly lodging can be found in a number of publications and on the Internet. Here's a partial list:

Many hotels, restaurants, and individuals will give your pet special consideration during your travels. It is important for you to do your part to ensure that dogs and cats will continue to be welcomed as traveling companions. Obey local animal control ordinances, keep your animal under restraint, be thoughtful and courteous to other travelers, and have a good trip!
