    Seen Better Days

    On the positive side, we were able to check in early. Unfortunately the room was not subjected to the proper cleaning procedures, as there was a cockroach on the floor in front of the bath area sink.

    We asked for another room, which was granted. Unfortunately it was on the second floor and opened up to the smoking area. I was disappointed in clarity of the booking procedures of BringFido. I guess that you do not contact these places directly, but use Booking.com. This was explained to me by the manager when I asked for my AARP discount. You clearly advertise that the rates using your service are the same as I could expect going direct. That is completely false. I understand now why you get the money up front for all your bookings, as would have cancelled the remainder and booked them myself through Wyndham/La Quinta. I will not use your service or stay at Best Western in the future. A very dissatisfied former customer.

    My Idea Of A Perfect Pet Friendly Stop

    Traveling from Florida to Maine during COVID-19 pandemic. We would drive straight through except for the cat. Because we also have a dog and a lot of stuff, we prefer motels with exterior doors. We had a room that open to a courtyard with a picnic BBQ area. The room was fine. Beds comfortable. We checked in at 5am and were gone by noon. During the pandemic Best Western doesn’t enter a guest room for 72 hours after a guest leaves. That was reassuring. Tonight we will be getting the cat a room at a Best Western in Fredericksburg, VA.

    Go somewhere else!

    We arrived late after a full day at the beach. First of all, this is a MOTEL. The lobby looks nice, but room entrances are from the outside. We were out in the very back, bottom level. Our room was smelly and musty, most likely the very gross carpet that was in the room. The bathroom shower had leaked so upon entering the room, the bathroom floor was covered with water. There were bugs everywhere around our room. Within minutes of getting there , I had multiple visible bug bites from inside of our room. Then when the neighbors weed and cigarette smoke started creeping in, I had had enough. We went to the front desk, we were offered no help. Her response was “I don’t know what you want me to do about it”. They offered no apology or even a different room. We left and stayed at a Hyatt that was only slightly more expensive. Was also told I’d have to contact Bringfido for a refund. Do yourself a favor and spend a tiny bit more and stay somewhere really nice.

    Great Experience

    Due to last min travel plans falling through, found this hotel in a pinch. Was extremely concerned given we don’t travel much with dogs (one gets too motion sick) and we typically stay with Marriott, Sheraton, and Hilton. Honestly can’t complain about a single thing. Lobby clean and smelled great, we were given a quiet room with great view, awesome dog bag full of multiple types of treats, room had everything needed, was super clean and smelled amazing. Soft comfy bed with good pillows, pool was nice, complimentary breakfast was amazing with lots of options: hot and cold. Would stay again!

    One Night Stay

    We stayed one night traveling through. No issues with the pets. There is a dog area which could use alittle attention. Room was clean with exception of dust on lamps, not a big issue for me. I would stay again.

    Best Western Inn Charleston, SC

    We appreciate BringFido securing The Best Western Inn in Charleston. We had a wonderful vacation and the staff at the hotel made it very welcoming.

    Clean and Comfy

    I'll start by saying that I am very picky about cleanliness and about where I sleep. However, I was very pleased with this motel! Despite having carpeting, the room smelled fresh and clean. The bathroom area was spotless and we could smell a trace of cleaners which always makes me happy! Housekeeping was excellent and vaccuumed/cleaned bathroom and sink areas daily. Beds, pillows, and linens were comfy. Breakfast was plentiful, with eggs/omelettes, bacon/ sausage, potatoes/biscuits and gravy, waffles and pancakes, various breads/pasteries, grits/oatmeal, yogurt/fruits, and lots of drink choices. They had an outside patio where you could have breakfast with your dog, and a couple smallish areas designated for going potty with bags and receptacles. The outside entry to the rooms made taking your dog to use the restroom a breeze. They were so kind to our Dale and went out of their way to make him feel welcome, as well as gave him some yummy and healthy treats. The area felt safe and there were several places to eat nearby, with about a 15 minute drive to the historic district and nearby beaches. Only downside was getting in and out of the hotel because the Savannah Highway is busy. Sometimes it would take us 5 minutes just to get on or off of the road, or we would have to go turn around and come back. It wasn't a big deal for us, but if you are a nervous driver it's something to consider. I am getting too long winded though. It was a great, clean, and comfotable stay. Would recommend and would stay again!

    Don't Stay

    The lobby is beautiful, which is misleading. The room smelled so bad my lil guy appeared uncomfortable. The room had flies galore. I thought maybe due to the weather. The last straw was the infestation of roaches in the bathroom. There are better choices for the money. Fido should really reconsider putting them as a pet friendly hotel. Any place that would subject an human or animal to these conditions and allow them to pay for it should be charged with a crime. Totally disgusted.

    Convenient location

    Pros: Rooms were fairly clean despite carpeting, staff were nice, lobby was beautiful, complimentary breakfast, 15-min drive to King Street

    Cons: carpeting, motel style hotel not shown in pictures, complimentary breakfast on patio but was wet from sprinklers so unusable, toilet would not flush

    I'm familiar with the area, so I was confident that I'd receive quality service. Clean and comfortable room, friendly staff, and you cannot go wrong with Bessinger's BBQ down the road!

    Good Doggie Place

    Stayed 2 nights, requested and got a room in the back near the 2 doggie walking areas. Got a nice treat pack with BringFido sticker on it on our arrival! Room was clean and comfortable, entire staff was attentive and very dog friendly. Only about 10-15 minute ride to downtown and many dog friendly restaurants in the area.

    We had a great stay at Best Western Charleston Inn. They have lots of area to walk my dog, pick up stations, and dog loving staff. They also had a great complimentary breakfast.!

    Perfect for Pets

    We spent 5 days here, and it was perfect! We brought our 90 lbs yellow lab , and were greeted with a ' welcome bag' consisting of treats and info on places that are dog friendly ( treats were available for a refill 24/7 at the desk) . There is a pet walking area , with a "pick up' bag station, and the rooms are quiet, and dog friendly. We were super happy here. <3

    Clean and Quiet

    We would stay here again. Room was very clean and quiet. I wound up walking my dog down the road in front of the hotel and that worked fine.

    Great Experience

    Hotel rooms were just remodeled and had all the amenities. Location was convenient to downtown. Staff was very helpful and were pet lovers. I would have given it 5 stars if there was a better pet walking area with grass. The current area was muddy due to recent rains. We would stay here again.
