Staying in a nice hotel with a (big) dog can be tricky. Drury Inn does it right! I have stayed at the Drury 3 times now on cross-country trips between the Midwest and the East Coast. Each time, the front desk staff is ridiculously nice. So nice it almost hurts. There is a dinner AND a breakfast buffet to please most palates! For no extra fee, you can graze on the baked potato bar, salad bar, fresh veggies, macaroni and cheese, hot dogs or chicken nuggets, a nacho station, and chips, pretzels, and popcorn. (Great deal for anyone who has been on the road for 8 hours and just doesn't want to get back in the car.) There is a soda fountain, coffee bar, and milk/juice for slurping. You can even get alcoholic drinks for .53 cents at this Drury in Kentucky. (Hotels in other states do it for free-- ie: Drury Inns, Indiana). Breakfast is expansive: hot and cold cereal, eggs, sausage, potatoes, biscuits and gravy, waffles, and muffins/bagels/toast. You won't go hungry at the Drury!
Rooms are very comfortable and clean: microwave and fridge in every one. Not a very noisy place. I got a Friday night deal for $85 once (a steal), but another time had to pay $140. Deals on the Drury website are a bit random. Still, this is a safe, clean, comfortable, nice place for an affordable price... and you don't have to sneak your dog in the back door after midnight and/or bring your own vacuum! Drury staff will welcome your pup with open paws.
Indoor and outdoor pools open all year. Bring your suit.
