The only thing better than a sun, sea and sand escape to Daytona Beach is one where you can bring your pet with you. Make it a magical stay for the whole family by booking one of these pet-friendly hotels.

Daytona Beach is a place for lovers of the fun things in life, blending a sunny Floridian disposition and carpe diem attitude with superb sporting and entertainment facilities – the LPGA International Golf Club and Daytona International Speedway are just two of the world-class venues here. Sun-seekers can relax on the miles of honey-colored sand or try out the many water sports available. The best part is, you don’t even need to leave Fido at home, as there are plenty of parks for walkies, and plenty of pet-friendly hotels.

1. The Shores Resort and Spa

This sunny yellow-and-blue hotel complex reflects the scene outside, and sits right on the golden sand of Daytona Beach. Guest rooms combine a similar color scheme with traditional decor, and many overlook the ocean; the Azure Restaurant has a more formal, refined feel, with a dark-wood aesthetic and a menu of ocean-fresh seafood – try the blackened mahi-mahi. The dog-friendly Frank Rendon Park neighbors the resort, or you can ask reception for some insider tips on pet-friendly places to go.

2. Atlantic Ocean Palm Inn

The spacious, unpretentious rooms of Atlantic Ocean Palm Inn offer everything you need for a pleasant stay in Daytona Beach, with nearly all offering ocean views and many with kitchens so you can self-cater. Jacuzzi suites feature supremely relaxing jacuzzi bathtubs, but no matter which room you choose, you’ll be able to go for a dip – just steps from the hotel is a sandy beach.

3. Holiday Inn Daytona Beach LPGA Boulevard

The Holiday Inn brand can always be relied on for a comfortable stay, and this hotel, with a great location on the LPGA Boulevard, is no exception. The LPGA International Golf Club is a short walk away, with the swampy wilderness of Tiger Bay State Forest, ripe for hiking adventures, just beyond. Back at the hotel, the pet-friendly rooms come with two queen beds, plus there’s a doggy walking area for when you both need to stretch your legs.

4. Residence Inn by Marriott

There’s a style-conscious, mid-century feel to this hotel, where the large guest rooms have colorful patterned carpets, flickering wall-mounted fireplaces and lots of dark wood and stone. The outdoor pool and fitness center mean you can keep on top of your workout, while Daytona Beach itself – great for surfing, scuba diving, swimming and sailing – is right on the doorstep.

5. Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort

All the rooms and suites at this classic Daytona Beach hotel exhibit a plush, traditional yet relaxed atmosphere, and afford stunning ocean views – choose a cabana suite to get your own patio overlooking the sea. Up to two dogs can room with you, as long as they’re under 50lb (22.5kg). With no fewer than seven dining outlets to choose from, there’s no danger of going hungry here – head to Doc Bales’ Grill for fantastic food, and be sure to try the prime rib.

Accommodation takes the form of contemporary guest rooms and suites, with even the smallest featuring kitchens so you can self-cater – although the prime location means there’s no shortage of top-class bars and restaurants within easy reach.
