With the increase in pet travel, more and more hotels are stretching the red carpet for our four-legged companions. But some charge pet fees that will break the budget! Find out which pet-friendly hotel chains accept pets free of charge.
For years, it has been common to see pet-friendly hotels charge a pet fee of $ 10 to $ 20 per night to give staff extra time to clean the room. But recently this model has changed and some hotels seem to rely on pet fees to increase their end result.
These days, it’s not uncommon to see hotels that accept pets, which charge an additional $ 50 to $ 100 per night to bring your pet!
But there are a handful of hotels that oppose this trend. They have really taken a pet approach. Today we celebrate the hotels for pets, where pets are welcome to stay for free!
