From the cute and clean roadside motels we happen upon, to cozy and comfortable bed and breakfasts, to the absolutely fabulous Ink48 in New York, our travels have afforded us the opportunity to investigate all kinds of pet friendly accommodations.

What we’re willing to spend for a hotel is usually determined by how long we’ll be staying. If it’s just a place to sleep overnight so we can continue on our journey the next day, we tend to be at the lower end of the range. If we’re parking the Winnebago and spending a number days exploring a city, like we did in Denver, we’re apt to spend a bit more.

That got us thinking – what price range are most pet travelers aiming for when they choose a hotel? And that led to our November pet friendly travel poll question:

When traveling with your pet, what is your hotel budget per night:

  • Less than $100 – 55%
  • From $100 to $200 – 42%
  • From $200 to $300 – 3%

The results are pretty interesting. Are the lower cost hotels most popular because of their pricing? Or is it because they are convenient – being so numerous, easy to locate along the highways, and having consistent pet policies – so little pre-planning is required? Or, perhaps it’s the economy that has people making more frugal choices. What do you think?

Regardless of your budget, we hope that you’ll support pet friendly hotels when you can … even if your pet isn’t along. And, when you check in, thank them for their pet friendly policy!

For our December pet friendly travel poll, we’re digging in a little farther and asking you to vote for your favorite budget hotel chain. We’d love to hear the reasons for your choice.
