DoubleTree by Hilton Denver - Westminster

We stayed here three nights ago and while our room was less than stellar (and they charged me twice for the one night) we just needed sleep and a shower, so we made do. I had already booked the same hotel for tonight and it was non-refundable, or I would have cancelled and booked something else. While we were at a concert at Red Rocks this evening I got a voicemail from the hotel letting me know there was a “maintenance issue” and our room had to be cancelled. I was about to begin looking for an alternative during the concert when the hotel called back and said, “sorry to give you a scare, but we do have a room for you, but it’s a different room type.” Ok, cool. It’ll work.

So after the concert we drove 30 minutes to the hotel and arrived at 12:18 a.m. only to be told they don’t have a room for us after all. No one bothered to call us back and tell us. So, here we sit in the hotel parking lot, exhausted, unable to find any other lodging options in the city, and it’s going on 1 a.m. We’ll be sleeping in the parking lot tonight before going to the airport tomorrow for a full day of travel. To say this has been a nightmare is an understatement. Avoid this place at all cost.

Foolish Frog

The hostess met us outside when she saw we had dogs. Another hostess came out and asked if she could take our picture with the dogs for us. We were promptly seated at an outdoor table out of traffic and a fresh bowl of water was waiting for Murphy and Peabody.

Great stop for a delicious brew

Southern Hops Brewing Company

Stopped in with our two dogs and sampled some brews. Nice outdoor area with a fire pit, cornhole and plenty of seating.

Fantastic all around!

Graham's Landing

We were seated quickly on the back patio and our server was beyond helpful and friendly. She immediately brought a bowl of water for the pups. Our server helped us decide what to order and it did not disappoint! Fried mushrooms, Fried Green Tomato BLT and the Supreme Seafood Platter were all top-notch! We were so full, but ordered their famous pecan pie pound cake to go. Fantastic!

Pawfect Lunch

Plums Restaurant

We stopped in for lunch. My husband went inside to tell them we had three dogs and the server said he’d meet us around back. He was there with our dog-friendly table ready and there’s a great river view. Food was delicious too!

Shoreline Brewery

Amazing service, great dog-friendly patio. They brought our pups a bowl of ice water and staff stopped by to pet them and even showed us pics of their own dogs. Also - great food and beer!

Very nice!

Boyd's Key West Campground

So impressed with thee cleanliness and care taken at Boyd’s. We have been staying at a waterfront tent site and love it. The sites are a little close together, but not too close. Nice pool area, SUP and kayak rentals available. The staff is so friendly and dogs are everywhere! We will definitely stay again.

Best deck in Spartanburg

Mata's Mexican Bar & Grill

We had a great lunch on the large, open deck at Mata's. The manager came out to chat with us and told us about his Dalmatian featured on the menu. The food was delicious and our dogs loved sitting in the sunshine. They also have an extensive beer list.

Evansville Staple

G D Ritzy's

I've been enjoying Ritzy's burgers, shoestring fries and ice cream my whole life. They have a couple of tables outside to eat with your dog. Nothing fancy, but the food is worth a visit.

Very Dog Friendly!

Westfield / Lake Erie KOA

We tent camped at this KOA for one night. Yes, it is right next to the interstate so you can hear some traffic, but that didn't bother us or the dogs. Many other campers had their dogs with them as well. Even the owner's Cocker Spaniel was around and welcoming pets.
