Pet-Friendly Hotels

Plus tips for your stay

San Diego is a great place for the entire family, including your four-legged best friend. Bring along the family pet for some fun and stay at one of the many pet-friendly hotels in San Diego.

We Accept Pets!

Bring along your tail-wagging family member for some fun in the sand at a local dog beach, hiking through the trails of east county and some posh relaxing in one of the many pet-friendly hotels throughout the county.

Tips for staying in a pet-friendly hotel:

  • Never leave your pet unattended in a room unless allowed by hotel indication
  • If you must leave your pet unattended, put him in a crate or in the bathroom. Leave the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door to avoid surprising hotel staff or allowing your pet to escape.
  • Bringing bedding or a carrier so your pet feels comfortable and at home
  • Place your pet's food and water bowls in the bathroom for ease of clean up
  • Keep your pet on a leash or in a carrier while in public areas
