Oregon is well-known for its pet-friendliness. Our travels across the state have taken us to some great pet-friendly hotels in Oregon.

Our Favorite Pet Friendly Hotels in Oregon

Generally, we opt to camp when we travel, but sleeping outside isn’t always possible If it’s raining, we just want a comfortable bed and shower, or to simply explore a city for a change, we’ll opt to stay indoors. Fortunately, Oregon loves its pets and finding accommodation isn’t such a daunting task. Below, we list our favorite pet-friendly hotels in Oregon.

Our Favorite Pet Friendly Hotels in Oregon

Pet Friendly Hotels Willamette Valley, Oregon

The Oregon Garden, Silverton

We had never heard of the Oregon Garden until we stayed there during our dog-friendly Willamette Valley wine tour. This beautiful lodge features an 80-acre botanical garden with 20 different specialty gardens displaying the diversity found throughout the Willamette Valley and Pacific Northwest.

Our favorite was the pet-friendly garden, which educates visitors of toxic and non-toxic plants for pets. The Oregon Garden also contains one of the oldest living Oak trees in Oregon, a 400-year old heritage tree in the Oak Grove.

The cottages at the resort are spacious and cozy rooms heated by gas fireplace. Pets are welcome for a nominal fee in select rooms and are welcome in the botanical garden and on the outdoor patio for meals. The resort also organizes social events, like Friday morning yoga, which, during our visit, I was lucky to be the one and only participant.

Pet fee: Yes, $15 per pet, per night.

The rules: Quiet, crated pets may be left unattended for short periods of time.

Best for: Quiet getaways, small town exploration, hiking

The Vintages, Dayton

Raise your hand if you’ve ever dreamed of spending the night in a vintage trailer. Well, now you can. The Vintages Trailer Resort is quite possibly the most fun place to stay in all of the Willamette Valley. Each of the 30 colorful vintage trailers comes equipped with it’s own WiFi, cruiser bikes, and bottle openers, of course. Most importantly, they love dogs. During our visit, Sora received a goodie bag filled with a tennis ball, squeaky toy, dog treats, and charDOGnay, (yes, as in dog wine)! The resort is located right next to a dog park and is walking distance to the darling wine village, Dayton. Not all of the trailers allow dogs, so be sure to inquire when you make your reservation.

Pet fee: Yes. $75 non-refundable cleaning fee good for the duration of your stay

The rules: Up to two dogs allowed whose combined weight must not exceed 50 lbs.

Century House of Salem is one of our favorite pet friendly hotels in Oregon.

Century House, Salem

This delightful B&B is in a very walkable Salem neighborhood helped me discover how cute the capital city really is. With very bikeable streets, good eats, and a dog-friendly farmers’ market, we were hooked.

Our hostess, Jean, went above and beyond to accommodate our bicycles, Sora, and our vegan diet. An avid cycle tourist herself, she has cycled in 33 states and therefore knew all too well our needs when we rolled in from the Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway. She made us feel right at home from the beginning and let us store our bikes and trailer securely in the carriage house.

Where she really scored was breakfast. She sat us down and delivered plate after glass after bowl of food to our seats. We started with a huge fruit salad topped with coconut cream, followed by a green smoothie loaded with fruits, and ended on a quinoa porridge bowl with toast and local jam, all accompanied by Steel Bridge Coffee—carefully selected coffees delivered by bicycle. Knowing we had a long day ahead, she sent us off with bellies filled with foods that would last the journey.

The place is quiet and there is plenty of space outside of the already large rooms to sit and read or work. The yard is large and the Century House is walking distance to the university and the downtown area.

Pet fee: Unknown. Tried calling, with no answer.

The rules: Unknown.

Best for: Urban exploring, breweries, quiet getaway

Pet Friendly Hotels Central Oregon

Belknap Hot Springs, McKenzie Bridge

Located right off one of my favorite places in the entire state, the McKenzie River Trail, Belknap Hot Springs is set back among the thick woods complete with trails and the McKenzie River cutting through the resort.

With the RV park, tent area, lodge, cabins, and mountain homes, there are accommodation options for every type of visit and budget. Hot springs are included with the price and there are specific pools and hours which are only available to guests, so as to avoid overcrowding. The 30-mile McKenzie River Trail is accessible directly from the lodge.

Pet Fee: Yes. $20 per pet, charged once per reservation for a stay in the pet-friendly lodge rooms, cabins, and mountain homes, $10 fee per pet for tent sites.

The rules: Pets must be confined in a kennel when left unattended and must be on leash at all times. They are not allowed in or near the pools.

Best for: Hiking, disconnecting, quiet getaways

Suttle Ldoge is just one of the many dog-friendly hotels in Oregon.

Suttle Lodge, Sisters

Hands down, this is our favorite place we have ever stayed with Sora. Suttle Lodge not only welcomes dogs, but it allows them to be dogs. During breakfast, a pack of friendly pups ran inside and outside the lodge, under the table, through our legs, and interrupted the staff meeting. If you’re not a fan of dogs, then this may not be the right hotel for you, but if you do travel with your dog, then this is the place.

Choose from the lodge or a cabin, like where we stayed. I’ll be honest, if you head to Trip Advisor, you’ll find some less than positive reviews. We did not see the interior of the lodge other than the common area and we never visited the original lodge. This seems to be where visitors have an issue. We were more than happy with our cabin, the staff, and the overall experience.

The boat center rents paddle board, canoes, kayaks, and mountain bikes, or you can opt for the three-mile loop around the lake.  

Pet fees: Unknown. I tried calling a few times, with no answer. My guess is no.

The rules: If your dog isn’t playing nice, then you must restrain them so that other dogs can continue to enjoy the freedom for years to come.

Pet Friendly Hotels Columbia River Gorge

Hood River Hotel, Hood River

The Hood River Hotel dates back to 1888, when the town of Hood River was established. While the original hotel was demolished, the annex, built in 1912, remains and has welcomed guests since. Restored a few times since the original construction, the hotel still maintains its historical charm and is listed on the National Register of HIstoric Places.

Located in the center of downtown Hood River, walking distance from restaurants, cafes, breweries, and shops. Our favorite places to frequent in Hood River are down by the river (Solstice and pFriem, both dog-friendly), a bit of a longer walk, but certainly manageable. Plus, in the summer, you can walk out to the middle of the Columbia River if the sand bar is out. The water is like bath water and once you reach the end, you can hop in to submerge and cool down. Abundant hiking options in all directions.

Pet fee: Yes. $25 per stay for up to two dogs of any size.

The rules: Up to two dogs allowed. No cats or other pets permitted.

Best for: Breweries, small town exploration, hiking, outdoor activities

Pet Friendly Hotels Portland

Kimpton Hotel Monaco, Portland

We’ll be honest, we haven’t stayed in the Hotel Monaco, mainly because we already had a home in Portland, but I’ve always had my eye on this place! It is known as one of the most pet-friendly hotels in the city. They even have a page on their website to show off just how pet-friendly they are. And, if that weren’t enough, they have a Director of Pet Relations. Her name is Addison and she’ll greet you with a wagging tail and kisses, if you’re lucky.

Each pet is greeted by name and pet parents can opt for amenities like a plush bed, bowls, and food. Guests receive a pamphlet highlighting the nearby pet-friendly establishments and dogs are welcome to join their humans at the nightly wine reception.

Pet fee: Nope! As they say, if your pet fits through the door, we’ll welcome them in.

The rules: The hotels welcomes your “furry, feathery or scaly family member — no matter their size, weight, or breed, all at no extra charge.”

Best for: Urban exploration, breweries, dining

Kennedy School - Portland Oregon

McMenamins Kennedy School, Portland

The Kennedy School is a neighborhood school turned hotel, complete with soaking pools, movie theater, and a variety of bars, a restaurant, and a brewery. We stayed here after our wedding and the hotel welcomed Sora with a feeding station and plenty of treats (all McMenamins hotels allow dogs, by the way!).

The hotel is tucked onto a quiet street in NE Portland, but still within walking distance to multitude of bars, eateries, and grocery stores along Killingsworth and Alberta (our favorite breakfast spot is Back to Eden. Don’t fear if you’re not vegan, you won’t even notice. Promise. I’m not just saying that. It’s true. Go. Try. Now.). Just a short walk away is Fernhill Park, a huge park with a great off-leash dog area.

Pet fee: Yes. $15 per pet per day.

The rules: There are no size or weight restrictions or limit on number of pets allowed. Pets must be on leash at all times when in public spaces and are not allowed inside restaurants or bars. They cannot be left unattended.

Oxford Hotel Bend

Smack dab in the center of downtown Bend, the Oxford Hotel is a boutique “eco-chic” accommodation dedicated to sustainability.

McMenamins Old St. Francis School

McMenamins are always a great go-to for pet-friendly accommodations in Oregon. Like the Kennedy School in Portland, the Old St. Francis School is another school to hotel renovation. The 1936 Catholic school house became a hotel in 2004 and includes a pub, brewery, movie theater, and soaking pools.

In order to preserve the history of the school, Old St. Francis School features photos, memorabilia, artist renderings, and student artwork on the walls. Apparently, if you wander well enough, you might stumble upon the secret bar!

Pet fee: Yes. $15 per pet, per day.

The rules: There are no size or weight restrictions or limit on number of pets allowed. Pets must be on leash at all times when in public spaces and are not allowed inside restaurants or bars. They cannot be left unattended.

Pet Friendly Hotels Oregon Coast

Deane’s Oceanfront Lodge, Yachats

Yachats is one of our very favorite Oregon coastal towns. Pronounced “yah-hots”)  this darling village packs plenty of entertainment into its tiny size. From exploring tide pools to hiking to the highest point on the Oregon Coast and staring into hypnotic ocean swells slamming into the volcanic rocks, Yachats is the perfect choice for a relaxing beach excursion.

Deane’s Oceanfront Lodge is located just steps from the beach and the newly-renovated rooms are spotlessly clean and include electric fireplaces for those winter stays. The staff loves furry visitors and all pets receive a “pet bag” to borrow. The pet bag contains a towel, a sheet to cover the bed, a water dish, and some treats.

Pet fee: Yes. $10 per pet, per day.

The rules: Dogs may not be left alone in the room. No size or weight restrictions. Two pet limit.

Best for: Beach vacation, relaxation, budget accommodation

Inn at Cape Kiwanda

What’s better than a room with a view? Staying just steps away from that view! All of the rooms at the Inn at Cape Kiwanda have views and private balconies overlooking  the Pacific Ocean. The onsite Stimulus Espresso Cafe features locally-roasted coffee from Five Rivers Coffee in nearby Tillamook. And it’s free at the front desk all day long. Right next door is Pelican Brewery, which just so happens to be one of our favorite pet-friendly breweries.
