A Route 66 road trip with the breeze in your hair and your dog by your side will lead you to Amarillo. The trails of Palo Duro Canyon State Park will stretch out your dog’s leash, and selfies in front of the Cadillac Ranch installation will stay on your refrigerator for years to come. Take a pit stop in the Texas Panhandle, and stay a spell at one of these pet-friendly places to stay in Amarillo.

The Barfield is more like the Barkfield if you ask us. This pet-friendly hotel in Amarillo is as chic as a primed and pampered poodle. Treat both of you to a deluxe king suite surrounded by cowboy-inspired decor. Spread treats out on the floor for your pup to eat at their leisure while you head next door to Polk Street Eats for Frito Pie chili, Fat Boy burgers and cheese fries loaded with all the good stuff.

2. La Quinta Inn & Suites by Wyndham Amarillo Airport

Right around the corner from the Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport and the Route 66 Motor Speedway, La Quinta Inn & Suites is surprisingly a great place for a quiet night’s rest. Even your dog, with such sharp hearing, won’t so much as twitch in their silent slumber. Once they’re certainly chasing sheep in their dreams, you’re free to pay a visit to the pool. When the beast awakens from their beauty rest, take them down to Southeast Park for a day outdoors.

3. Home2 Suites by Hilton Amarillo

We know all too well that it’s tempting to spend all day and night at Palo Duro Canyon State Park with your dog, but, when you need a roof over your head that’s not a beautiful sky, head to Home2 Suites by Hilton. You won’t rough it at this pet-friendly hotel in Amarillo. You’ll share a king suite with your shar pei, complete with a separate living area, dining space, and fully equipped kitchen.

4. Hampton Inn & Suites Amarillo East

Hampton Inn & Suites has a weight restriction for pets, which should be no problem for cat-carrying folk unless your feline is a total Garfield. If they can weigh in below the limit, we can bet they’ll try to push the limit by devouring treats in the snack shop or trying to wiggle their way into the breakfast queue. Probably best to keep them contained to the suite – at least there they can only raid your refrigerator.

5. Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Amarillo West, an IHG Hotel

Holiday Inn Express knows that traveling with pets can be hard on both of you, which is why its goal is to help you get checked in, rested, and back on the road as fast as possible. Head right up to your suite, where the wet bar is ready to refill your pet’s water bowl. Draw the black-out shades to give them a distraction-free sleep. Then, grab yourself a coffee or breakfast from the lobby on your way out in the morning.

6. Best Western Santa Fe

Flocking to Amarillo for the wide-open spaces of northern Texas? You’ll find birds of a feather at Best Western Santa Fe. This pet-friendly hotel in Amarillo won’t chirp at you bringing your cockatoo, parrot, and parakeet to roost for the night. Head up to a king suite, where they’ll spend the last hours of daylight gazing out at the big Texas sky. The complimentary breakfast and pool are yours; the rest is for the birds.

7. TownePlace Suites by Marriott Amarillo West/Medical Center

Stretch your legs – all two or four of them – when you spend the night at TownePlace Suites. The pups can join you in a studio sweet, cuddling up together in a cozy corner while you channel surf with your feet up. Follow the smell of barbecue out to the grill area, and you might meet new friends with a few mutts of their own. Make plans for a nice long walk at the Belmar School Park right behind the hotel.

8. My Place Hotel – Amarillo West/Medical Center, TX

You’re always welcome to stay at My Place when trekking through the great state of Texas. This Amarillo dog-friendly hotel has a space for you and two of your hounds to crash. Each room has a small kitchenette, where you can cook up the food for sale at My Store. If you and the dogs are camping, keep your eyes peeled at My Store for any necessities you forgot; you can purchase cookware and utensils instantly.

9. Hyatt Place Amarillo-West

Having a 24/7 market on hand is one of the reasons why Hyatt Place is a clutch choice for travelers with a terrier in tow. Whether you’re grabbing a sandwich to share with your pup in your suite or loading up on road trip snacks for a drive out to Cadillac Ranch, the market saves you the trouble of making a grocery run or asking them to tag along through the drive-through.

10. Sleep Inn & Suites West Medical Center

Sleep Inn & Suites knows a thing or two about catching zzzs. This soothing sanctuary isn’t reserved for your slumber alone; the pet-friendly hotel in Amarillo has nature-inspired design elements to keep all creatures at peace. For those with fewer than three legs, the indoor heated pool and hot tub will help set the mood for a snooze. For those walking on all fours, the complementary Relax Melodies soundscapes should do the trick.
