Looking for Pet Friendly Motels/Hotels on I95 from NY to FL
My wife and I are moving to TV in March with our two cats. Does anyone know the locations of pet friendly lodgings along I95 on the way down? Whatever info would be appreciated. We would like to do the trip in two days but may take three depending on how the cats are doing. Thanks.
When we enter a State, I always grab a hotel magazine (usually available at service stations). They usually state the pet policies of each hotel in that State, prices, and locations. Also, you usually get a discount on the room rate.
I find that Red Roof Inns are usually pet friendly, but each one seems to have its own policy.
You may also want to try the search button (in blue at the top of the page). In previous discussions there are been lots of great pet-friendly motels mentioned. I've found the information to be very helpful.

Thanks for the reply and suggestion. I figured day one would find us somewhere in northern NC. Day two would be near the south end of SC or in AL and then day three would traverse FL. -Dave-
If you find yourself in AL, you have not been listening to your GPS. (Of course you meant GA, just kidding)
When you enter a state, stop at the Welcome Center and pick up your motel discount books.
I would also recommend a book that has been very valuable to us on our drives.
"Drive I-95: Exit by Exit Info, Maps, History and Trivia"
It is available at Amazon for $16 and change.

Another great source is the AAA book for motels for states/regions. If you're not a member, find a friend who is and get a copy. It lists all pet friendly motels, rates and other amenities. I ended with 6 of them for my drive from California to here. Between those books and petfriendly.com, I had no problem finding places where my daughter, three cats and I could stay in good accommodations at reasonable rates. (Petfriendly even lists B&Bs that allow pets.)
Good luck on your drive down and, of course, congrats on your move.

Have made many trips on 95 from NY in the past 3 years with my cocker spaniel. There are many pet friendly motels; and I use the AAA books to locate them. I like to stay at a motel that provides waffles for me and oatmeal for my dog. Then I don't have to stop for breakfast and save about an hour in the morning. I usually stop somewhere in NC as close to the SC border as I can get. Last trip down stayed in Smithfield, NC. Loads of restaurants and motels. Rocky Mount is a good area for motels also. Usually arrive at TV around 6PM the next day.

Rusty and I stayed at the LaQuinta motel off exit 64 , I think, off 95 just south of Richmond going and coming. 60. plus tax with coupon in the travel books at rest stops. No charge for dog. Breakfast included.

Last time we headed North we tried a Quality Inn and the one in Roanoke Rapids was pet friendly and there was no extra charge, I can't speak for all but we have found that as a general rule Quality Inn's and Days Inn's welcome pets. We're headed back South Saturday and will let you know of any new findings.
