Hampton Scottie Inn - Savannah

Ok, I know you all must be wondering: what were our digs like in Savannah? Well, as you know, we found a place that didn't even charge a pet fee. What's not to love about that? And, if you follow Scottie Mom on Facebook, you know Heather and Mr. K were greeted with treats at the front desk. Again, I ask: what's not to love about that?! For our larger fur friends, you might be happy to know this hotel doesn't limit the weight of canine guests to a mere 25 pounds. In fact, they allow dogs up to 75 pounds! The accommodations were comfortable, the room was clean and the Scotties had no problem settling right in. This trip to Savannah looked to be a good one from the moment we arrived at Hampton Inn Savannah - I-95 North.

The only thing that wasn't to love was the location of the hotel. If the city of Savannah itself wasn't so dog-friendly, I could see how the location of the hotel (which is situated about 20 minutes or so from downtown Savannah) might be problematic. Luckily, it is easy to take the dogs just about anywhere in Savannah. The drive wasn't so bad but the area surrounding the hotel left us wanting more. To the side of the hotel was a ramp to I-95. Across the street was a tractor trailer truck stop. And the road into town wasn't any more scenic. But were these things a deal breaker for staying at the hotel again? No. The most important thing for me was that Heather and Mr. K were comfortable wherever we stayed and that they were safe. At no point did I feel that either of those points had been compromised. As evidenced from just a handful of the photos we took above, Heather and Mr. K were smiley as ever in this place. That alone makes the stay worth it!

Next time, I suspect we'll try a place in town...perhaps a bed and breakfast. I checked out a few with great reviews on BringFido.com. None were available for this trip but something tells me Scottie Dad, the fur kids and I will be back to Savannah again at some point to look into these and report back on our findings. In the meantime, tell us: what has been your favorite vacation experience with your fur kid(s)? Is there a dog-friendly hotel that you remember best?


  1. I loved reading about your dog-cation! A lot of hotels in California charge for pups. My peep is going to check our Bring Fido. Santa Barbara is an overall very dog-friendly place...it's my favorite city to visit!

  2. Heather, you have the BIGGEST smile in some of those photos!!

    We like the Regency Hyatt.


  5. This is so cool. Mom and dad are thinking about taking me to Tybee the next time they go. Last year, they were told there were some pet friendly places there as well :) XOXO - Bacon

  6. I'm so glad you had a great time :o) our trip was sadly not the best, but we plan one in fall and we hope this time it will be a good trip :o)

  7. You both look pretty happy :-) Glad you got to stay inside, I had to sleep in a tent :-(

  8. We LOVE Keswick in Charlottesville, Virginia. ooooooooh la la!

  9. What a great place...you must have felt like royalty being greeted with treats!! When we go away we usually stay at LaQuinta...but we will have to check out Bring Fido to see if we can find a place that will greet US with cookies too!!

  10. Great that you had a good time. Over here we are not so dog friendly so you need to plan well ahead and book months in advance. Never easy over the pond. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

    Some very happy puppers there. The only place we have been is to the race track with Dad and stay in the Toterhome there, we eat very good also!

    I love Savannah, such a beautiful city but I wanted to comment about a pic of you with Wallace with ASTRA. I was responsible for getting him to them. He was my first rescue effort. I was thrilled to see you with a pic of him. I am even more thrilled to know he has been adopted, and they are even paying for his hip surgery. I know he's probably a mix, but he is a wonderful dog and deserves a good life as a Scottie. Thank you for the opportunity for him to help get noticed.
