Road Trips with Pets

It’s not a family vacation without the family pet. And there’s no need to leave your four-legged friends behind—at Red Roof, pets stay free!


We welcome one well-behaved domestic pet (i.e. cat or dog) per room to stay the night at no extra cost—that includes no cleaning charges or hidden fees.


Bring your best friend along for the ride. Here’s what you and your pet can expect during your stay at Red Roof.


The Best Way for Your Pet to Stay

  • Let us know about your pet when making reservations and when checking in at the front desk. That way, we can best accommodate your pet’s stay.

  • Keep your pet company throughout your stay. You pet’s safety matters to us.

  • When nature calls, your pet can sniff around our pet-designated area. Bring baggies for pet disposal so that nothing is left behind.

  • While housekeeping is tidying up your room, your family can explore these pet-friendly destinations.

  • Read our pet policy (for humans) so that your pet is ready to stay at Red Roof.

Road Trip Safety for Pets

Your pet’s safety is important to us. Before hitting the road, make sure that your pet can travel safely throughout the entire trip. We recommend performing these pet road trip safety checks:


  • Secure your pet with a seat harness or a pet carrier during all car travel

  • Ensure your pet is never alone in the car

  • Confirm your pet wears a proper collar with up-to-date contact info

  • Keep your pet’s microchip information close by

  • Stock up your car’s travel first-aid kit

  • Carry your pet’s health certificate and photo


Pet Travel Activities for Any Road Trip

No need to leave your pet out of the fun. You can easily discover inclusive activities fit for the whole family. In fact, there are plenty of pet-friendly parks, restaurants and events happening wherever your travel takes you.


When it’s time for a break, you can find a nearby dog park designed for safe outdoor play. There’s always an opportunity for your pet to make new friends at any destination throughout your road trip!
