The Most Pet-Friendly Hotel in Every Southern State

There's nothing like taking a getaway from reality. Imagine it: an escape to a place with incredible views, sumptuous linens, and fantastic food. But what good is a vacation if you spend the entire time missing your furry best friend? There are plenty of hotels that accept pets in the South, but who wants to go someplace where your pet is merely accepted? Your four-legged companion is a very, very good boy (or girl) who deserves to be completely and utterly spoiled! Take Cotton Court Hotel in Lubbock, Texas, for example. Bring your pet along to play games, roast s'mores in one of the many fireplaces, or lounge in a comfortable chair. In addition, Lubbock itself is extremely pet-friendly with two off-leash dog parks and several businesses welcoming four-legged friends on their patios. Your dog can even join you while you explore the stellar public art collection on the campus of Texas Tech before you head back to the hotel to snuggle beside the fire in the evening. We're talking plush pet beds, fresh-baked treats, dog walking services, private pet-friendly beaches and so much more. Whether you're in the mood for a weekend in the heart of a dazzling city or long to spend time surrounded by nature, there's no need to leave your pet at home.

To help you plan an amazing getaway with your pet, we've rounded up the best pet-friendly hotels in every Southern state. There are places like the Grand Hyatt in Nashville with their complementary "puppuccinos," the Stonewall Resort in West Virginia with 1,900 acres to explore, and the Ambassador Hotel in Oklahoma City with a dedicated concierge to fulfill your pet's every want and need. Pack your bags and grab your pet. The best pet-friendly hotels in the South are calling.
