The Top 7 Pet-Friendly Budget Hotels

October 24, 2016

Top pet friendly budget hotels in the U.S.

Last week we published “The 7 Best Pet-Friendly Luxury Hotel Chains”. For pet owners on a budget, we’ve researched the best budget hotels that welcome four-legged companions. All of these budget hotels welcome dogs and cats, and a few of them even allow other domesticated pets such as birds, snakes, and (if you can believe it) monkeys!

1. La Quinta Hotels

One of the most pet-friendly and pleasant budget hotel chains is La Quinta. With nearly 900 hotels throughout the U.S. and Canada, only a handful do not allow pets. La Quinta invites up to two domestic animals per room (dogs and cats). A few locations impose pet fees and weight restrictions, so always call in advance to verify details before booking.

2. Best Western

Similar to La Quinta, Best Western encourages pet owners to include their four-legged companions in their next stay. Best Western has more than 1,600 pet-friendly locations across the U.S., Canada and even the Caribbean. Most hotels offer dedicated areas for dog walks and pet elimination. Best Western allows up to 2 dogs per room but prohibits dogs weighing over 80 lbs. In addition to dogs and cats, some Best Western venues welcome other domesticated animals such as birds, rabbits and even monkeys.

Regarding cost, some Best Westerns allow pets for no extra charge. Other locations may charge a maximum of $20 per night for owners with more than one pet. No more than $100 will be charged for an extended stay. A refundable pet deposit of $50 may also be required.

3. Red Roof Inn

Red Roof Inn has over 450 pet-friendly locations scattered throughout the U.S., and not one location charges a pet fee. One pet is permitted per room, and the pet must be declared upon guest registration. Like all other hotel chains, pets must be kept on a leash when outside the hotel room. Similar to other hotel chains, not all Red Roof Inns can accommodate pets due to state and county laws, so always call in advance to confirm that your pet is welcome.

4. Motel 6

Motel 6 is one of the largest motel chains in the U.S with over 1,100 locations. Although rooms are basic and often underwhelming, the chain has one of the most liberal pet policies. Most branches welcome up to 2 pets per room for no extra charge. Only Studio 6 branded hotels charge a $10 per night pet fee (capping at $75 for extended stays). Motel 6’s pet policy emphasizes that hotel management retains the right to refuse a pet if the animal poses a health or safety risk (i.e. excessive aggression).

5. Days Inn

Days Inn hotels are well known for being pet friendly. Each hotel’s policy is different, however, so it is a good idea to call ahead to confirm your pet’s reservation and any associated charges.

6. Travelodge

Many Travelodge locations accept pets, but each hotel may have slightly different pet policies. To make sure your pet is welcome at your location of choice, contact that location directly before booking your reservation.

7. Super 8

Similar to Days Inn and Travelodge, numerous Super 8 motel locations welcome pets. Each location has its own policy, however, so please call in advance before booking your stay. Super 8 rooms are fairly basic, but the motel offers complimentary continental breakfast, high-speed wireless Internet and free coffee.

10 Best Products for Dogs Recovering from IVDD Surgery - djangobrand.com
10 Best Products for Dogs Recovering from IVDD Surgery

May 25, 2022

Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD) is a diagnosis that all dog owners dread. We (Mike and Steph) unfortunately saw our long-haired dachshund Django go through IVDD surgery earlier this year after suffering a serious back injury.

The path to recovery after an IVDD diagnosis is never easy. Dogs with IVDD always need strict crate rest, and many also need complicated and expensive back surgery like our dog Django. While recovering, your dog's movement must be restricted to a crate or pen, and he or she may not be able to walk without support. Your pup may also experience incontinence for several weeks and need help going to the bathroom via bladder expression. In other words, the recovery process can be difficult and daunting for us loving dog parents.

Fortunately, there are dog products on the market that help make your dog's IVDD journey and recovery easier. Here are 10 products that we found helpful and essential throughout Django's IVDD recovery.

DJANGO We Feed Raw Dog Food Review: Our Experience with the Minimally Processed Raw Pet Food Subscription Service
We Feed Raw Dog Food Review: Our Experience with the Minimally Processed Raw Pet Food Subscription Service

April 21, 2022 2 Comments

The popularity of raw dog food has exploded in recent years. More than ever, experienced dog owners are showing preference for the biologically appropriate, minimally processed, and nutrition-dense dog food. Many point to the health benefits of the diet. To name just a few, raw-fed dogs often have smaller and firmer stools, healthier skin and coats, better digestion, and fewer allergy symptoms.

We've always been incredibly picky when it comes to Django's diet. We only feed our hairy little sausage dog high quality and often organic foods. We tend to favor fresh dog foods and never hesitate to top his dinner bowl with wild alaskan salmon, boiled organic chicken, half an egg, or even fresh organic strawberries (his personal favorite!).

Recently, we decided to try We Feed Raw. This company is one of the more reputable ones in the raw dog food industry. It cuts out mystery ingredients and unpronounceable additives and replaces them with easily digestible, human-grade meat. Unlike other dog food brands whose recipes have endless and often unrecognizable ingredients, you can easily count and identify all We Feed Raw recipe components.

Here is an honest and in-depth review of We Feed Raw dog food. All opinions expressed are solely our own and are based on our personal experience feeding We Feed Raw to Django.
