    Thumbs up La Quinta: Best dog friendly hotel chain

    La Quinta has quickly become my favorite hotel chain. The rooms are always clean, the front desk staff is friendly and helpful, and most of the hotels allow dogs and cats - with no weight limit or extra fee! There are La Quinta hotels all over the country (great for a road trip with dogs) and they're usually very reasonably priced.

    Did I mention the continental breakfast always has a waffle machine and mix? And the front desk often has warm cookies..
    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

    Current carry: testing new potential materials in the form of Original Large Shop Bags.

    Call the La Quinta you plan to stay at and make sure of that - it seems to be up to each individual La Quinta, but I have yet to run into one that had a weight limit or fee.

    They usually have a grassy "pet area" outside, but the rooms don't (of course) have dog bowls or anything like that so make sure to bring your own.

    I always used Motel 6 in the past, because nearly all of their hotels allow pets. (I often road trip with my dog, Rhapsody, and don't like wasting time asking who allows pets and who doesn't.) While Motel 6 is definitely cheap, the rooms sometimes reflect this.

    Nice to know that La Quinta is a little more upscale, yet still allows pets. Thanks for the tip, Darcy!

    It can be very hot in Palm Springs so do check to be sure your hotel allows pets..I use Palm Springs Hotels--they list all the pet friendly hotels and whether there is an extra pet charge.

    I agree about LaQuinta! Best Western is also mostly dog-friendly (we just did a long Christmas drive with our dog. It was great.)
    Current carry: Super Ego, various pouches, I/O (when shooting). Incorporating the FIELD JOURNAL!!!! Next up on wishlist: S25 and SE (June 2016)
