Pet Friendly

Carlsbad’s Top Pet-Friendly Hotel

At West Inn & Suites, we recognize that you don't want to leave your furry family members behind, so feel free to bring them along!

Because West is a pet-friendly hotel, we not only provide a unique experience for each and every guest, but offer a very special welcome to your dog or cat as well!

West Inn & Suites' special pet amenities include a cozy pet bed, water and food bowls, treats, and pet aromatherapy spray all upon request. While we don't place any restrictions on the size of your pet, we do charge a nominal fee of $75 per night for a maximum charge of $150 for two nights, with your pet staying free of charge from the third night forward. We do respectfully request that for the protection of your pet, our staff and all guests that pets not be left unattended in your room. In planning ahead, the concierge team can assist you with any needs for doggie day care alternatives; health records required.

And while your pet is in residence at West Inn & Suites, they can enjoy a pet run on the grounds of the hotel. There is also a dog park adjacent to the hotel with a convenient pet drinking fountain for refreshment after playtime. Our Carlsbad, CA location is perfect for visits to nearby Del Mar and Solana beaches, which are pet-friendly and a great place for your dog to romp and swim with other dogs. Our special pet guide provides for restaurants, parks, beaches and dog washes to complete the perfect total family vacation.

We look forward to welcoming you AND your pet to West Inn & Suites, and invite you to peruse our Facebook page for photos of our four-legged guests!
