    Thanks! Always appreciate being updated on these things!
    Where can we find the pet owners reviews of ‘Pet Friendly’ motels? That would be very helpful in keeping informed.
    DO check first with the hotel/motel. We had stayed many times at a Quality Suite at the S. end of Ocean City and they {were} wonderful! Doggy treats, wipes and ‘duty bags’ supplied. Very polite.
    However, they must have changed policy or changed management. When we were there the day after Labor Day, they were barely tolerant of our well behaved, well trained Border Collie. They also refused to give us a ‘regular’ room, and stuck us in a filthy, stained carpeted, moldy room in the back with a giant FAN blowing the dampness down the hall right outside our door that we had to squeeze past every time we wanted to enter/exit the room. WWhen we complained, they would not change our room BECAUSE of our dog! At least half the place was empty, so availability was not an issue.
    This is NO reflection on all Quality Inns and Suites, but in this particular one, Dogs are persona non grata no matter what the ‘ads’ say.

    Recently, we traveled over a weekend from CT to MA then on to New Hampshire, back to Boston and finally RI. My husband travels on business so we were able to stay each night on his accumulated points. We found only one hotel chain that did NOT charge us to have our small JRT with us – La Quinta. The “pet sanitation fee” charges are getting outrageous especially considering that our dog is small, crate trained and housebroken. My husband travels 3 weeks out of 4 per month and he will be switching to La Quinta even when traveling without our pet.

    We have found the LaQuinta chain to be one of the best for traveling with pets.
