Whether you’re on an Interstate 20 road trip or visiting college friends, your trip to Shreveport, Louisiana will be twice the adventure with your dog. Luckily, in addition to riverboat casinos, crawfish and Creole culture, there are tons of pet-friendly hotels in Shreveport for you and your pooch. You can both enjoy Shreveport Dog Park – a Louisiana riverfront paradise – after booking your pet-friendly stay on Culture Trip.

1. Bally's Shreveport Casino & Hotel – for striking gold on the shores of the Red River

Traveling with your pups but still want to hit the casino? That’s no problem when you stay in the Ballyverse. Bally’s Shreveport Casino & Hotel is perched on the banks of Red River and offers a full selection of table games, poker, and more than 1,500 slot machines. And like all casinos worth their neon stripes, you’ll never have to leave — the eating options are excellent, whether it’s fine dining at the wood-clad Vintage or vibrant Vietnamese flavors at the Noodle Bar. Up to two well-behaved dogs are allowed in each room – just not at the poker tables.

2. The Remington Suite Hotel & Spa – for retro class on the corner of Market Street

What began in 1907 as Shreveport’s first pharmacy is now its trendiest boutique hotel, complete with a speakeasy-style cocktail lounge. All rooms have attractive decor, but consider booking a Deluxe Suite, where every room is named after and designed by a different artist. And not only does the Remington offer the most stylish sleep in town, it has a rooftop dog park for the pups! Treats and pet bags are available for the furry guests.

3. Residence Inn Shreveport Airport – for quick getaways off I-20

It doesn’t get more convenient than this Residence Inn location: just off Interstate 20, two blocks from Shreveport Regional Airport and a two-minute drive to Waffle House (a Southern road trip essential). One of the top pet-friendly hotels in Shreveport, it caters for dogs of all shapes and sizes, which is a relief if you and Rex have already developed a Waffle House habit. Choose from studio, one- and two-bedroom suites for the pooch to nap in while you chill by the outdoor pool.

4. La Quinta Inn & Suites by Wyndham Shreveport Airport – for big dogs near the airport

La Quinta Inn & Suites is a lifesaver if you’re traveling with large dogs, and this one is no exception – accepting up to two pets, of any size, per room. Located right off Interstate 20 and not far from Shreveport Regional Airport, it makes a great choice for a stress-free stay – there’s even free breakfast and an outdoor pool. What more could you and the pup want? A po’ boy, you say? No problem. Sam’s Southern Eatery is under 1mi (1.6km) away and offers curbside pickup of its downhome cooking, including fried catfish and dirty rice.

5. Holiday Inn Express & Suites Shreveport South Park Plaza, an IHG Hotel – for easy comfort near LSU
