Can I Bring My Dog to Motel 6?

Everything You Need to Know Before You Bring Fido

Posted by Zain Deane

One of the earliest examples of an economy hotel for the no-frills traveler, Motel 6 has kept the light on for guests since 1962. Over the years, the brand has stayed true to its promise of offering budget-friendly accommodations but has also added numerous perks and services at no extra charge. Guests enjoy free amenities like morning coffee, cable TV and WiFi, and free stays for children 17 and under when accompanied by adults. And with a brand-wide pet policy that accepts two pets for no extra fee, Motel 6’s mission to provide outstanding value extends to its furry guests.

Ready to Make Motel 6 Your Home Away From Home?

With more than 1,400 properties, Motel 6 offers a reliable stop at (or on the way to) every major city in the U.S. and Canada. Many properties are located near highways and interstates, making this a trusted choice among travelers looking for overnight stays on long journeys.

Motel 6’s pet policy is among the best in the industry for budget hotels. Two pets are welcome at nearly every property across the chain. Weight limits per pet vary by hotel, despite a corporate policy that permits pets with up to a combined weight of 150 lbs. In rare instances, a select property will also charge a modest pet fee, and a few Motel 6 locations will not accept pets due to state or local regulations and restrictions.

Motel 6’s Pet Policy

At Motel 6, pets stay for free. Two pets with a combined weight of up to 150 lbs are welcome for no additional fee at Motel 6 properties across the U.S. and Canada. The only exceptions to this policy are due to state or local municipalities that prohibit any pets other than service animals. At each Motel 6, the hotel manager reserves the right to forbid or remove pets that are considered to pose a health or safety risk. This includes pets that are overly aggressive, not properly attended, or responsible for damage to the hotel’s or other guests’ property.
