Cherry Jozwiak: Cypress Inn at Carmel By the Sea in California. They cater to dogs and their owners and is by the beach that is dog heaven. I highly recommend it.
Barb McGuire: I travel a lot with dogs - both dog showing and work-wise. I really have had little real trouble finding good, clean places to stay all over the Pacific Northwest. I particularly like Residence Inns by Marriott - lots of room, full kitchen, fireplaces, security on site, lots of grass usually, doggy areas. Also, Holiday Inns and Super 8's can be reasonable. These typically take animals and are usually clean, quiet, and safe. Around here, Nendels and Red Lion typically take animals. Nendels has a pet deposit. I know Motel 6 takes animals, but sometimes they don't take larger dogs. Also, I have stayed at one Howard Johnsons and at several Shilo Inns.
Moc Klinkam: Many of the 50+ Shilo Inns throughout the Western United States accept dogs for a small additional fee. I've stayed comfortably (not luxuriously) with my dogs at Shilo Inns in Washington, Oregon, and Montana. Call Shilo Inns and Resorts at 800-222-2244 for information and reservations.
