For those of you who don't even want to take a vacation without Fido or Fluff, it's high time you check out Pets Welcome, a website that offers tips, an info exchange and a great route-based search capability that showcases pet-friendly lodgings between your road trip departure point and destination.
All you have to do is input your origin, destination, the maximum number of miles you will allow to search for a pet-friendly lodging off your main route (there's a 2-20 mile breakdown) and of course whether or not you want to avoid highways, toll road or ferry lanes. From there, you'll get a break down of all the hotels, motels and inns that happily welcome four-legged friends. Of course if you aren't taking a road trip and plan on flying into a city you can also check out listings in one location.
My search from San Francisco to Seattle (810 miles) turned up an alarming 98 results. If you can't find one decent place to stay in that list you might as well stay home.
