Admission time… As much as I love my sugar-dumpling furbabies, I am not a fan of traveling with them. However, recently my perspective has changed. Stick with me while I tell you how Red Roof Inn, a pet-friendly hotel changed my mind.

I’m sure you have heard of Red Roof Inn before as they are everywhere.
It’s popularly known as one of the best economy hotels in the U.S. and has more than 500 locations nationwide.
I guess I was living under a rock though because I did not know that pets always stay free.
As a pet lover, this is something I think I should have known.
In addition, there are no hidden charges for staying with your pet and get this, no cleaning fees!
Well behaved family pets are always welcome at Red Roof.
Why I Hated Traveling With My Pets:
I do not like using the word hate.
It’s such a harsh word but truth be told, traveling with pets is stressful enough without having to worry about finding a nice pet-friendly hotel.
I tried it a few times, back in the day and I just got frustrated with hotels that said they were pet-friendly only to find out they really weren’t.
I am a responsible pet mama.
Cleaning up after my pets, making sure they do not destroy property, and so on.
Not that my precious babies would do that but you know.
I found that hotels would treat us much like we just ended a lease on an apartment!
If you have ever rented you know how that goes.
They always find some way to filter in some added charges for the smallest thing.
Plus, who wants to stay in a place you do not feel welcomed?
Pets our family.
We would not want to stay anywhere that did not welcome us, so we also want a place that welcomes our pets.
Red Roof Inn Brings Back The Happy Feeling Of Travel With Pets:
Red Roof Inn wants us to feel relaxed when we are involved in pet travel.
Not only do our pets stay free Red Roof helps us by making sure we have access to the nearest dog parks.
You can find dog park information on their site.
Outside of the scent of freshly brewed coffee to greet you when you arrive, Red Roof Inn offers us humans tons of Smart-by-Design® amenities.
I won’t list them all but a few that really stand out to me are complimentary gourmet coffee, snack centers, and enhanced in-room entertainment package with video games and more than 13 channels.
Red Roof Inn is such a wonderful place to stay for budget travel without sacrificing great amenities!
Oh and then there is the Red Roof Hassle-Free Guarantee:
If a customer has a concern during his or her stay, they will make it right. If they can’t resolve the concern, the customer doesn’t pay.
Red Roof Inn Pet-Friendly Hotel Really Do Love Pets:
Truly, it’s not a marketing ploy!
I recently had the chance to meet with some of the Red Roof people at the BlogPaws Conference.
Their love for pets is the real deal!
They devote a large part of their website to pets giving pet parents much-needed support such as pet travel tips.
Take A Sneak Peek At Red Roof Inn:
Staying at a pet-friendly hotel makes all the difference.
It also makes me want to start traveling with my pets again.
I may be headed on a short road-trip adventure this month since it’s my birthday month.
If I do, I plan to stay at Red Roof because Link, my doxie granddog, has made it clear he is coming too!
Kitties are loved and welcomed at Red Roof too.
I personally know many pet bloggers with cats that stayed there last month during the conference.
They had nothing but good things to say about their stay.
