Any of our PBF planning to go to this event?

Anyone have recommendations of cheap hotels that allow bullies? I'm calling around trying to book a room and coming up short.

AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH

My level of excitement right now is through the ROOOOFFFF :yipee:

Just booked our hotel rooms at La Quina Inn in Baton Rouge, they accept pets, and do NOT discriminate against bullies!

I am so excited, oh I really hope that this works out for us and these plans don't fall through, seems my plans always do... I reallllllly hope this works out.

Now to see if I can get Boss to the lake to practice!

In the future, both La Quinta and Motel 6 accept pets with no additional fees and no breed restrictions.

Splash Dogs also has a discount through Red Roof Inn but I've never used it.

have a great time!

Actually, one out of the three La Quinta's in metro Portland has a size restriction so I still like call in advance. Otherwise, they are definitely our dog-friendly motel-chain of choice :)

Did not know that about Red Roof Inn!!!

Really wish there were going to be some PBF members there for me to meet! I haven't found another team from MS yet.

i have used the red roof in splash dogs code. it works nicely but sometime i find that military discount is bigger sometimes so i just have to double check. red roof in is pretty nice and been nice to us.

we have also stayed at double tree hotels with Peanut. they were extra nice to him cosidering he peed in the lobby everytime we walked thru it just dropped belly. i went to clean it and they took care of it instead. also they give you free warm yummy cookies when you check in :) i can't wait to go back to the double tree :)

Yes I worry about Boss because he is a wizzer when he gets excited. I will make sure to take paper towels and cleaner! In the hotel he will be in a crate.

That's good to know. My friend is an uber-fan of LaQ and always stays there. Do you know what the restriction is?

I did some more searching and with the splashdogs discount Red Roof is 16$ cheaper. La Quinta has a pool,and the receptionist said that no one usually swims that time of year but if it is okay with the manager we can use the pool to practice :) And seems like she has a good bit of reservations that weekend that are with the splash dog event, or are random people traveling with pets? lol

It was the location in NW - near Forest Park and there was some weight limit if I recall - maybe 25lbs.
