Best Western Hotels and Resorts Pet Policy

Pets are welcome at more than 1880 Best Western Hotels & Resorts locations around the world. The standard pet policy welcomes two pets up to 80 lbs for an additional fee ranging from $30 per night to $150 per stay. A refundable damage deposit of up to $150 per stay may also be required. However, not all locations are dog friendly, and fees and weight restrictions may differ from property to property. Check rates and get the most up-to-date pet policies at all Best Western Hotels & Resorts locations on BringFido’s website or mobile app.

Everything You Need to Know Before You Bring Fido

With more than 4700 hotels in nearly 100 countries, you’re never too far from a Best Western or Best Western Plus hotel. Each property is independently owned and operated, which means no two Best Western Hotel & Resorts properties are the same, and the facilities and policies can vary by location. More than 1880 of these hotels promise comfortable accommodations for you and your pet. BringFido maintains up-to-date policies on all of the brand’s dog-friendly locations.
