Fun Vacations for “All” at Pet Friendly Hotels

 Pets – the animals you spend your life with. They’re loyal, loving and they’re protective of you. No wonder 37 to 47 percent of households in the country have pets. Taking your furry friend along for the ride has never been easier with pet friendly hotels Monterey.

Leaving your best friend behind not an option?

Since they are your life companions, it can be hard for you to go on a vacay without them.

Sure, you can leave them at the local kennel but wouldn’t you be consumed with guilt enjoying a beautiful place out of town while they’re at a local kennel missing you, wondering where you’d gone and when you’d be coming back?

You would, right? So, why would you even consider vacationing out of town with your family if you will not be bringing the four-legged members?

There really is no valid reason for a vacay without the furry babies when there’s a growing number of pet friendly hotels in the country.

You don’t have to leave you pets at home, with a friend, or at the kennel anymore when you wish to satisfy your wanderlust or to relax and unwind at a luxurious accommodation.

These pet friendly hotels are ready to welcome your dogs or cats or both with open arms.

Activities for “all” family members

If you’re considering a weekend stay in beautiful Monterey, CA, the county has several of these hotels and they have been accommodating families with pets for some time now. Not only that, these Monterey hotels have unique services particularly designed to cater to pets.

It’s important to mention that if you want to spend a huge part of your vacation with your beloved animal beside you, all you have to do is turn to your concierge. Inform him of the different activities you wish to do with your pets.

They’ll search for provisions the hotel has or are available in the community that can meet your specific requirements.

Or, if you don’t have any ideas and you want to know what enjoyable things you can do with your pets outside of the hotel, your concierge will have no problem presenting all kinds of options for you such as pet spas, dog training centers, dog runs or parks, retail shops for animals, bakeries and even tea rooms.

If you’re lucky, there may even be some events in the area that are up your alley – your concierge can hook you up for those.

Monterey hotels certainly have your furry babies covered. Some accommodations are known to provide special treats and even special fluffy pillows to lounge on because indeed the furry ones are as important as any other member of the family.

Now, pet services will run you a little higher on the expenses though. There are additional charges for them (such as for the minor accidents they get into). But if you really can’t leave your pet behind and you wish to make sure that they’re going to be as comfortable at the hotel as they are at home, the additional amount to be paid is no doubt completely worth it.

Important Things to Consider about Pet Friendly Hotels

Not all hotels from a hotel chain that says it’s pet friendly actually are. Therefore, it’s important to contact the hotel you’re hoping to stay at and inquire before making a reservation.

If the hotel says they do indeed accommodate pets, inquire about restrictions. Most hotels have weight, size and breed restrictions, particularly for dogs. Despite these restrictions though, hotels are usually up for a negotiation so don’t give up right away if your canine family member doesn’t meet the restrictions.

If you’re able to assure the hotel that your dog has a good disposition and won’t be any trouble, most hotels may be able to loosen up some restrictions.

Also, don’t forget to ask if you need to provide proof of your pets’ up to date vaccinations.

Some hotels, because they have a doggie-specific area where all guests’ dogs play and interact, require a medical certificate from the vet to ensure all dogs that come to their facility are healthy and will not spread disease to other four-legged guests.

Lastly, don’t be afraid to inquire the extent of the hotel’s “pet-friendliness.” You may be expecting chef-prepared meals for your canines or felines – not all pet friendly hotels offer these treats.

It’s good to know the full range of services the hotel has for your furry family members so you can prepare and pack properly for your family vacation.

A True Family Vacation

 A getaway for the family can never be complete if you don’t bring your beloved animals. So it’s truly a wonderful thing that a lot of hotels now are elevating their services in order to support “true family vacations” by catering to pets.

People love pets because these domesticated animals bring so much joy to life. Now, with pet friendly hotels, creating more fun memories with them has become so much easier.
