The Blue Ridge Mountains is a bucket-list destination for any self-respecting beagle, bull dog or bloodhound. The beauty of the driveable parkway is only a sample of the natural wonders that lie beyond the reach of your vehicle, however. Roanoke is an ideal overnight basecamp for journeys into the woods and has a good range of dog parks to boot. Get lost in the great outdoors with your furry companion when staying at one of the best pet-friendly hotels in Roanoke.

Hilton Garden Inn Roanoke, for happy snacking

Here’s the thing – the minute you step into your premium suite at Hilton Garden Inn, you’re going to notice the sips and snacks waiting for you. Your loyal lab, on the other hand, may wonder why there’s no box of treats for them. It’s best to plan ahead and fetch a few goodies for them across the street at Tanglewood Mall before you check in – and with any luck you won’t have to share your snacks as well as your bed.

Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Roanoke Salem, for road trip r&r

When you and your dogs are howling from too much time on the highway, pull off of I-81 and into Fairfield Inn & Suites. This pet-friendly hotel in Roanoke has a room where you both can fall paws up on the bed. And if those legs need a further stretch, head four miles (2.5km) south into Salem and you’ll find a space for Butch to run free at the Rotary Dog Park.

Best Western Plus Inn at Valley View, for easy riders

If you’re cool enough to be cruising the open road on a Harley-Davidson with your mutt in the sidecar beside you, Best Western Plus Inn has got you covered. Ride into this pet-friendly hotel and take advantage of motorcycle-friendly amenities like complimentary access to a cleaning station – for the bike, not the barker. The dog will simply be happy with a fresh bowl of water to help get the bugs out of their teeth.

Residence Inn by Marriott Roanoke, for a caffeine kick

Residence Inn is across the street from an outdoors store – ideal for hunters, fishers, or nature lovers getting ready for a day outside with their canines. Rest up in the king bed while your pup curls up by the fireplace. Grocery delivery service can be arranged if you need some midnight snacks on standby. When the sun rises, grab hot coffee from the lobby, make a supply run, then head out into the trails of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Home2 Suites by Hilton Roanoke, for leash-free leisure

Home2 Suites is a pet-friendly hotel in Roanoke that accommodates even the chonkiest of chihuahuas, with a 100-pound (45kg) weight limit. Naturally, their suites are large enough to let all of you stretch out comfortably. Growling a bit at the thought of leaving them alone for the day? Drop them off at the Fido Fitness Recreation Center nearby so they can play while you explore downtown Roanoke without a leash in hand.

Hampton Inn & Suites Roanoke Airport, for first-class kennels

So close to the Roanoke-Blacksburg Airport that your wide-eyed weimaraner will spend the whole holiday looking up at the planes passing overhead, Hampton Inn & Suites is your landstrip for relaxation. They’ll gladly pick you up from the airport and get your dog into a significantly more comfortable space than the cargo hold. The hotel will gladly provide you with a kennel and the 24/7 market can hook you up with snacks for the jet-lagged Jack Russell.

Hyatt Place Roanoke Airport/Valley View Mall, for runway relaxation

Before heading out into the mountains, take a break from the parkway at Hyatt Place. Hanging out behind the terminals of the Roanoke airport, this pet-friendly hotel invites you and your road dog to settle into a high-floor suite. Get the blood flowing with a workout in the fitness center or a few laps in the indoor pool. If you’d rather run amok with Rover, Thrasher Park’s expansive dog run should do the trick.

Best Western North Roanoke, for wilderness walkies
