While there is certainly no lack of variety in terms of hotels on the Las Vegas Strip, one area that is slightly lacking is affordable, but pet friendly, hotels. There is no shortage of glitz and glamor, and plenty of modest offerings at the lower end of the price range, and there are both museums and restaurants out there where pets are welcome. But the nearest pet friendly hotels are around half a mile from the center of the Las Vegas Strip.
The popular chain hotel and motels where pets are welcome do have pet friendly hotels on Las Vegas Strip or thereabouts. While many of them charge an extra amount for letting pets in, some do restrict them to certain areas and floors of the hotel. This may be a small inconvenience for those who cannot be parted from their pets even in so called “Sin City”.
If you are willing to accept an alternative to a pet friendly hotel, there are some kennels where you can book a space for your pet to stay, and visit them while you are on vacation. There are some of these kennels in the areas near the Las Vegas Strip, including the VIP Kennel and Animal Inn Boarding Kennels, which is situated about five minutes away from the strip. The kennels will usually only accept dogs if they have been vaccinated against rabies, corona, distemper, and kennel cough – so remember to take any vaccination certificates you have as proof.
The Las Vegas Strip Has Some Pet Friendly Hotels
While pet friendly options are relatively rare on the Las Vegas Strip, there are some pet friendly hotels and motels to choose from. The La Quinta Inn is one of the more popular pet friendly options. It is located on the Valley View Boulevard, about half a mile from the strip, and quite close to the airport, making it a quite convenient choice.
Hawthorne Suites-The Strip is also a comfortable place to stay and is located very near the Las Vegas Strip. Every room in this hotel is a suite and it offers guest laundry, outdoor pool, exercise room and other amenities. They allow well-behaved dogs to be brought in for an additional $25 per stay.
If you are after more luxurious options, there are some four star hotels, such as the Westin Casuarina Las Vegas Hotel, Casino and Spa. This is about half a mile from the strip, and offers some nice facilities for both you and your pet.
The Marriott chain also offer a pet-friendly, luxury option – the Residence Inn, located around ¾ mile from the central part of the strip. The Residence Inn Las Vegas Convention Center is also nearby, and is another Marriott chain hotel.
If you prefer to travel on a budget, you could take your pets to the lower cost, two-star Super 8 Motel. This is located at the center of the Strip, behind Ballys. The Candlewood Suites will also allow pets, but space is limited, with only the first floor accommodating pets. They also state that pets may not be left alone in the suite.
