Pet Friendly Spokane

Pet Friendly Spokane


Many hotels in the Spokane region are pet friendly. La Quinta Inn & Suites in Spokane Valley and the Holiday Inn Express in Downtown Spokane allow dogs without any additional fees.In addition to these options, many hotels allow pets for a nominal fee. To find out if the hotel you are interested in is pet friendly, select a hotel from our hotel listings and under the “Amenities” tab, select “Accommodations.” Unfortunately, most hotels do not allow cats. If your animal companion falls outside of the canine category, it’s probably a good idea to call ahead.


Even though you may not be able to get away with bringing your dog inside a restaurant, there are several eateries in the area that will allow a well-behaved pup to accompany you in outdoor seating areas.  Open seasonally, the Park Bench Cafe, located in Manito Park, is a great place to walk your dog and stop for a bite in the summer. If you’re simply looking for a quick cup o’ joe, Atticus Coffee & Gifts has a small outdoor seating area that is dog friendly. For more early-morning food options, The Yards Bruncheon in Kendall Yards offers fresh, delicious breakfast and lunch choices. For more robust lunch and dinner options, check out Casper Fry in the Perry District, Luna Restaurant on the South Hill or venture downtown to try Saranac Public House or Steelhead Bar & Grille, all of which feature outdoor seating that is dog friendly. As with hotels, it’s always a good idea to call ahead if you plan to bring a pet.


There is no shortage of outdoor activities to do with your dogs while you’re in Spokane. The abundance of state and city parks makes it easy to find a place to take your dog out for some play and exercise. Explore over 100 miles of sights, sounds and smells at Riverside State Park or hop onto the Centennial Trail and venture through 37 miles of paved trail that runs through downtown Spokane and Riverfront Park. Pets are allowed in most Washington state and city parks, but must be under physical control on a leash.  Pets are not permitted on designated swimming beaches. If you’re looking for a place to let your dog off the leash, the SpokAnimal Dog Park at High Bridge is a great place to let your pup run free.
