Did you know that some hotel chains and brands don’t allow pets?
I know, it’s crazy especially since cats are dogs are basically a member of most folks families.
But sometimes, you just want to escape the pet fur in the rooms or just the plain presence of animals.
That’s why some hotels don’t allow pets at all (except service animals of course).
So whether if you’re allergic to dogs or cats, or just don’t want to be in the presence of barking animals in the hotel lobby and hallways, there’s a hotel for you!
Below you’ll find a list that we compiled of all hotel chains that DON’T allow pets.

Having a phobia of dogs, or sensory processing disorder or allergies, are all legitimate disabilities, and people like us are often out of luck looking for a hotel that doesn’t allow dogs. We’re supposed to be protected in North America under the disability legislation in the US and Canada, but for some weird reason the dog-lover thing is just something we’re expected to endure. At best, we might find a hotel somewhere out there with pet-free rooms available. In most cases, we just stay with relatives. It drives me nuts! I mean, it’s not asking for much to expect hotels to not allow pets. This “they’re members of the family” thing wears thin when someone shows up with a pig or a pit bull or a Capuchin monkey. Or a Yorkshire terrier with bad diarrhea, but apparently anything goes no matter how dirty or repulsive it is.
Finally some of the airlines & their rules with pets onboard got a little stricter but still there is no escape. Husband worked for one for 30 yrs. The last 10 yrs he said it got crazy. One of his flights had 13 dogs on board, and had to divert because someone had an asthma attack. Nuts…
WOW finally found someone thinking the same way.
Agree now is in style to have dogs they are everywhere and since is big business they are going to stay. Even at the markets people are starting to show up with dogs.
Thanks God we are not the only ones thinking the same way.
Pet free rooms hard to find. Front desks seem defensive. Majority of Americans do not have pets indoors, Then why do motels admit 100% of the rooms have had pets in them?
Pets allowed, little service-have to ask for it daily, and price gouging during toroust season. Pets in front counter area, pets in elevators, pets in breakfast room pets everywhere-ugh!
Pet friendly motels stink and one returns w pet dander and foul smelling clothes. It is totally a mania that has taken over the travel lodging industry. The bottom line motive is $$$$$$$$$$.
Pet free motels hard to find!
I wish I did, I would love to just stay pet free places. recently the only one I found that holds down the rule of No Pets was in Arizona . They tell you if you sneak one in, you will be fined & have to leave. I have found pet friendly hotels are even worse in Europe .. ugh ..
We are travelling around Canada at the moment, everywhere seems to encourage pets, we stayed at a fairmont hotel, a couple had 2 large dogs they took up two settees and two chairs for the owners, we went outside. Thinking it would be better only to sit down and get covered in dog hairs.
What’s the point in dressing up and then being covered in hairs!
Unfortunately every time I enter Dog Free Hotels it comes up with dog friendly!
Does anyone know of a dog free website as we frequently travel around the world and it’s driving me nuts!
Ps I like dogs, I have one, but not in my bed or on my furniture! So I do not want to share other people’s!

????This is about pets in hotels …
Prayer/God have never been legally permitted in public schools….check your history.
Hotels do not cater to dogs they cater to money
Thank you for your response and I can appreciate your perspective and the feeling this would be a lost cause as that is how they have made us feel. However, no one believed Madelyn O’Hare would be successful but she was. There is power in numbers! Yes, we will be criticized and even hated but so was Jesus! O’Hare was dubbed “The Most Hated Woman in America” but she pressed on and got results. Make no mistake, I do not condone what’s she did, but I do support the fact but she did not allow a defeatist mentality and what could/would be said to stop her. A few short months ago my cousin who is also very afraid of animals was in Hobby Lobby of course they are very pet friendly However, there were two monkeys and yes, you heard me right, monkeys, in there that from my understanding they bring in periodically. The owner’s profusely apologized and said that it had never happened before, but she had noticed that the monkeys kept eyeing my cousin but she did not expect them to do this. It’s great that she apologized but my cousin was traumatized. It has to stop. We have to be the change that we wish to see and we have to stop allowing people to shove things down our throats that we disagree with. We spend money just like everyone else and deserve to be able to do some of the things we desire to do as well. We have got to band together and take a stand although can appreciate you not wanting to be disliked or called an animal hater but I don’t care what they call me, I’m not an animal hater, I just truly believe they have a place and everywhere I go is not their place, unless they are service animals.
I agree with you! However large corporation owned Hotel chains will not turn pets away because of the whole blacklash BS. I see it all the time on social media people being attack because they disagree with the pet craziness. One person showed a video of a German Shepard licking a baby’s face & a few people thought it was not a good thing & also concerned of the baby’s safety, (dog) people went crazy. How dare these (we) animal haters( their words) they say such a thing!! Also store employees won’t question people that come in with their mutts, because they are afraid of being sued .. unfortunately I feel it’s a lost cause ..until somebody sues that has an incident with a dog (either bitten or hospitalization, etc) we have no rights just to be able to breathe ..😤
Whether you are afraid, have allergies or just plain have no interest in sleeping behind pets (me), no one should be forced to just deal with animals in hotels, restaurants, grocery stores, etc., unless they are service animals and even then they should be made to provide proof when requested. Like you, my mother is very afraid of dogs, so afraid a neighbors dog ran up to her in her yard to play, while trying to get away she broke her coccyx (tailbone). I am not afraid of dogs and have a couple that I consider family, but not to the point I believe it is acceptable to them to be allowed everywhere that humans are allowed. They have a place and none of those places listed above should they be allowed unless performing a service.
The problem is, we “quietly” disagree with being forced to accept things that are forced upon us! As the consumer, we have the power! A good example of this is, prayer was taken out of schools because someone “loudly” disagreed with the system after she “quietly” asked her children be allowed to leave the classroom during prayer time and was denied. Now had they just allowed her children and possibly a handful of others to be excused, prayer in schools could possibly be still the norm and children today might be quite different. Now, I say, if we can take prayer/God out of schools based on a few that disagreed with serving God, then getting back to the days of “No Pets Allowed” signs could very well be accomplished. I say we unite, get a petition started with valid reasons why this is bad and needs to stop. It is totally unfair that we just accept our fate and be unable to travel or shop where we desire, we have rights too! What do you think?
Lora says it all for me. I am afraid of dogs. Pets make hotel accommodations and unsanitary and parasite infested. Long for the good old days when pets were animals and not people. They are still animals!
I totally agree.
I agree 1000%. Why should everyone be subjected to a dog. Some people sleep with dogs in the bed & you….a non animal person or someone with allergies will have to sleep behind a dog. Not cool. Not to mention the extra work for housekeeping.
I thought the dog pest has only expanded in Europe (Italy allows them absolutely everywhere except for the steam bath, because “it would be difficult for the dog to breathe………”)
I am afraid of dogs. I do not want them around especially in enclosed areas such as hotels, restaurants and shops. I had a dog before and it was only kept outside. This dog knew it should never approach me unless I approach him. And he knew jumping and licking was not allowed. This dog was never allowed indoors (except for my uncle’s home).
I can’t believe I have to be digging for the places NOT allowing pets so I can be able to walk freely during my stays.
Wish most countries adopted the Japanese policy on pets.
Well said! I’m so allergic to dogs and cats to the point I broken out in blisters! I can’t stay in hotels or go shopping at local shops because of all the animals. Yes! The animals has taken over, even in my favorite restaurants. So…. Now I shop On Amazon, We had to buy an RV for traveling, and I cook at home or have the restaurant deliver our food. Trust me! I don’t mind leaving a place if it’s a real service dog, but a pet! I can’t even shop at Sam’s club anymore. Three years ago around Christmas, there were at least 7 dogs in the store! Not all small…. Three were BIG DOGS! 🤷🏼♀️ I spoke to the manager, with my buggy full, and she said they have a right to! I said I hope the dogs spend as much as I would have, and left my buggy there. What can we do?🤦🏼♀️ Thanks for sharing your story with us,
Last line is the key. Why must the whole hotel be pet friendly? Why not just certain floors or wings? Contain it to certain rooms.
Exactly !! People are afraid to say anything because they don’t want to appear as haters… it’s so damn ridiculous anymore !m I don’t give a rats ass about your pet, I care about human beings & OUR health !
amen…..this pet nuttery has gone out of hand
I work at a hotel and they allow dogs and hair is every where hair be all over the bed.i will never stay in one of those room i.don’t care how you clean them just to think you take your kids in them the dogs be done.use.the.bath.room on the floor
absolutely..the nation has gone gaga about dogs ..for heavens sake let’s have a reality check. I recently attended a public family day with open air picnics ..only guide dogs allowed…was a wonderful day..!!! I have Asthma and thoroughly enjoyed the fresh air, no dogs peeing, sniffing and generally being a nuisance where there’s food, babies and children.
I have had two sinus surgeries and take allergy medication daily, and had to start picking and choosing friends because of indoor pets and smokers. (and yes hotels) I have to put all of them in the same category, as they have the same effect on me. I can identify smokers instantly, but being around pets and owners of pets takes a while to affect me. When I stay in a pet friendly hotel that says they do extra cleaning for you are bogus claims and just spray some terrible smelling disinfectant that causes the same effect on my sinuses as animals, and suffer the next day. I have been blessed to live long enough to see how much deterioration of our rights about a lot of things, to satisfy the minority instead of the majority. You heard that right, we are the silent majority, because the squeaky wheel get the grease. The hotel chains have figured out that most people tolerate pet friendly hotels, because they don’t know any better or lied to about cleanliness, when we know better. The hotels know that pet owners file discrimination law suits, and raise such a stink, it’s easer to stick it to the majority that deal with the stinky people. Maybe some of the majority will start filing some lawsuits about health issues related to stays at this major hotel chains, and maybe we the people (majority) will see some of those right’s restored. I for one, would like to be on a jury of someone filing a lawsuit, who has experienced waking up with swollen eyelids and headaches, and missed work or ruined that much need and expensive vacation. I guess it’s time for me to step off my soapbox, before this post becomes a novel.
These people are absolutely right!! I have to carry a carry on bag of medication because of these people with their animals. When did a dog come before a persons health!
Yep there was a lady in one of the rooms of the hotel I was staying at and she had 3 yes ..3 yappers with her on her vacation .. she would make a big deal that she was having such a wonderful time with them .. does it get any worse ??? I have to carry my inhaler & meds because of these stupid people ..
It’s like we’re being force to accept and tolerate the nastiness. You can tell once u walk in the room a dog was there.
It made me so sick. I could hardly breed. This should be illegal. Very nasty worst if it’s a lazy maid.
It’s overly ridiculous and nasty. Most places now are violating our health. Especially nasty people with pets.
How about when it’s but is in a grocery cart where you are going to put your food … ugh
I don’t want to stay in no hotel where there.is pets
Love dogs like anyone else but I don’t need to be sleeping after a animal that licks it ass and smears dog shit all over your pillow case. Not to mention fleas. Incredibly stupid.
It’s time us non-pet lover stand up
And people take full advantage of the word “service” … yes there are REAL service animals & then there are just PETS that are claimed to be some type of service…
This whole post is specifically for you
A service dog is NOT a pet! Service dogs are trained for a certain individual for a specific disability. A pet is not required to have ANY level of training!
Wow I see I’m not the only one. I’m staying in the extended stay of America where they have specific rooms for dogs but!! God forbid I want to wash clothes in their laundry room designated for guests….ALL I SEE IS DOG HAIR!! Everywhere! THESE PET OWNERS ARE A MENACE! Clean up after your pet! Imagine what their house looks like (blahhh)
Found that Sleep Inns ONLY allow service pets. The 2 I’ve stayed on my June trip were by far cleaner than the pet friendly lodges. We have 2 dogs and 3 cats. They are all well cared for, but all stay OUTDOORS in THEIR natural environment. Can’t do the hair, pee, poop, messes, nor odors. Hard enough to keep a home clean w kids, gkids, spouse, family and friends, and most of them practice good hygiene…yep.
I’ve spent several occasions in hotels that accept pets. At best, it was tolerable, but for the most part the experiences were annoying to say the least. Fido can stay home at the pet motel in your neighborhood. I don’t need him snarling at me in the halls, barking all day and night in the room while the owners are out partying, and generally annoying me during my stay. As for the list above, it is essentially useless. unless I opt to visit the extremely limited locations mentioned, I’m screwed.
And at the veery least, the hotels can isolate the animal rooms from the rest of the rooms.
It is not fair. Animals take priority.
👍🏻100000 % agree
As with everything else going on in the world, pet owners are out of control & im sick of it. When did it become that an animal is more important that a human being. I’m an asthma sufferer and tired of my vacations ruined by somebody’s pet. It’s really the owners not the pet itself that needs to be more responsible for the stupidity of it all. Really? get an effing life & leave the dog for 10 mins. Or better yet but it in a kennel not a hotel room .. God forbid
I completely agree with all posts against animals in hotels, EVER. And might I add in grocery stores, home improvement stores, furniture stores, ok I’ll say it, in any place of retail except Petco or Petsmart. I love dogs I tolerate cats since some that are allowed to run free have urinated in 3 of my vehicles. I’ve seen dogs held in arms with their heads in the case sniffing the donuts while “Mommy” is leaning over to make her selection so I went elsewhere for my whole purchase. This pet owner “drag my part everywhere” revolution has got to stop soon. I travel about 50-75% and my company makes me stay in Hilton and IHG properties with coworkers and everyone’s dogs, not such a great thing. I could possibly deal with “some” 1st floor rooms being the only pet friendly rooms to minimize the interface but they need to use the side doors. Sorry if this sounds prejudiced against dogs and cats but they don’t carry the rights as people, they are ANIMALS not kids or humans beings.
animals are…. animals. they are not family and there should be waaaay more places that prohibit animals inside. leave them home with friend or put them in a kennel. and, yes, i had a dog before and i cried for some stupid reason when i gave her away after 7 years. she was still just an animal at the end of the day.
Hopefully hotel will stop catering to selfish pet owners.
I am actually allergic to pet dander and find it increasingly difficult to find hotels that don’t allow pets. Even if they clean well, I still struggle in pet-friendly hotels. For many people, pets are a part of their family but for many of us, they are not. We need to find a happy medium.
I completely agree with you. I simply can’t find an upscale hotel that is not pet friendly in Chicago. I will have to rent a vacation home during my visit
I totally agree and am over staying in hotels that allow pets. When did pets start become more important than people? Dogs have interrupted our sleep for the last several days at a Hampton Inn. We also have a 1 and4 year old. From large dogs to small happy dogs. Dogs are taking over and ruining non dog owners or owners who don’t travel with their dogs time in the hotel.
Dogs and cats are animals. Pet owners don’t smell their animals in their own homes. However, a non pet owners such as myself can smell that stinky wet dog smell or that slightly stale urine smell of cats as soon as I enter a hotel room that has housed animals. It’s putrid, heavy and gets worse if it’s a damp day. Sorry for the brutal honesty Family or no family dogs and cats are animals. I can bathe my humans and they don’t smell like wet a dog or stale urine long after they’ve left the building.
