Dog friendly?

Dog friendly?

My friend and I are trying to plan a bucket list road trip with our dogs. We live in Denver, Colorado and we want to take our dogs to the beach. Trying to find a beach we can drive to from Denver where the water will be warm enough to swim is proving difficult. Can anyone suggest dog friendly lodging in Galveston? And are dogs allowed on the beaches there? Thanks so much!!

My sister takes her roughly 60 pound dog when she travels to Galveston and stays at the Red Roof Inn so I know they take dogs at least up to 60 pounds.

Some hotels is Galveston are extremely dog unfriendly -- I would call them dog "mean". I had reservations at Knights Inn, and even though my dogs are kenneled in the back of the pickup, they rescinded my reservation upon my arrival. They wouldn't even allow me in the parking lot. I offered to park off-site, but that didn't matter. Once they knew I owned dogs I was persona non grata. I would suggest calling ahead of time to verify that they won't try and charge you $250 if they find you have a pet on the property. Travelodge also does this.

Sandnsea has dog friendly rentals, I'm sure other rental companies do as well and can fill you in on the rules for having your dogs on the beach. In my experience I have seen small dogs in hotels.

Dogs are allowed @ Motel 6 & LaQuinta.

Dogs are also allowed @ beach, on a Leash.

Actually there is a pet friendly hotel website for you to consider: for this trip & future trips.

Good luck!
