There are 31 pet-friendly hotels in Philadelphia and another 2 near the airport that allows dogs. Or you can choose B&B’s or more affordable motels located in or around the city.
You can choose from hotels in the heart of the city, which are the most expensive or use pet fees and policies as a guideline for other locations.
Whichever your choice, you will find accommodations for you and your dog while you visit Philadelphia from the many choices here.
Philadelphia Hotels: Dog & Pet-Friendly Hotels, Motels, B&Bs
The dog or pet-friendly hotels and other rentals below are separated first by hotels, then by motels, B&B’s and links to find other rentals. Within each section, I list the businesses by ascending zip code within different Philly neighborhoods.
I include room rates and pet fees, if applicable, which I mainly got from TripAdvisor and BringFido. The rates per night are the starting rate or on the low end of the per night rate.
These costs are subject to change as are the online review ratings which I also included. The address and phone number for each location are included just below the link to their website.

Hotels That Allow Dogs
The most options that I found when traveling with your dog are hotels. This was a very difficult article to research. Some of the websites are really slow and will lock up your system. Hopefully, you can reduce the number of sites you need to visit using this list of pet-friendly hotels, motels, and B&B’s.

Other Pet-Friendly Hotels: Essington \ Airport

Dog & Pet-Friendly Motels
It looks like Motel 6 is the only pet-friendly motel chain in or near Philadelphia. However, I wouldn’t stay at a Motel 6 or bring my dog to one. They don’t have great reviews but do have a lot of negative press. The choice is yours.
Motel 6 Philadelphia Northeast

$69 per night. No pet fee for 2 dogs of any size. Google review = 3.0. Bringfido = 1 star.

$70 per night. No pet fee for 2 dogs of any size. Google review = 3.3.
Dog & Pet-Friendly Bed and Breakfast in Philadelphia
It’s difficult to include specific B&B’s since they are more likely to change over time than a large hotel or motel. Here are two that I’ve found and links to find more:
Cornerstone B&B Philadelphia
3300 Baring Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104, 215-387-6065
$180-256 per night. $35 pet fee per day. Google review = 4.3.
South Bridge Bed & Breakfast
2628 South Street, Philadelphia, PA 19148, 215-219-2682
$117 per night. Pet deposit and prior approval required. Google review = 3.9.
Good luck trying to find B&B’s that are pet-friendly through Airbnb. They do not offer a search option for “pet” or “dog”, only reservation dates and the number of people or children.
I chose a date in the future and it returned 300 results. I was able to select a filter for Pets but the search button was “Show 300+ Homes”. So they are trying to push as many locations in your face as possible.
You should try narrowing the search to a particular date and zip code and then read each property description. I’m assuming if you are more specific in your search that it will reduce the # of results, hopefully way below 300.
Other Links to find Dog or Pet-Friendly Accommodations
This is a great site but is kind of slow. It shows hotels, B&B’s and townhouse or apartment rentals. You are also shown a lot of results so it would be best to narrow the results with specific dates.
They have a review rating of “bones” instead of stars, so “5 bones” is good, 1 is bad. If there are no bones, that just means no one has added a review.
The search I ran listed 64 rentals from penthouses to apartments that are pet-friendly in Philadelphia. That is a much easier # of results to find a good rental for you and your dog.
I found 56 pet-friendly rentals here but I’d be surprised if they were all unique from the Flipkey results.
I found a bed & breakfast that is pet-friendly called BnB Antiques & Art Gallery & 4 pet-friendly townhouses.
One other option is to board your dog with a local pet sitter or daycare service. Take a look at my article Dog Boarding Cost in Philadelphia for a list of 13 pet service companies that will board your dog in their home or at their daycare center.
You can also look into dog daycare. This would be for when you want to spend a lot of time at a specific place (Art Museum, Independence Hall, etc.) and not have to worry about going back to walk your dog.
Note, the dog daycare will have to test your dog to make sure he\she is dog-friendly But if you know you have a friendly dog, this may help you spend more time seeing the city.
If you are interested in this service, check out my Doggy Daycare Cost article for a list of all dog daycare locations in the city.
Enjoy Your Stay in Philly & Bring Your Dog
I hope you are able to find an affordable pet-friendly hotel, motel or B&B while you are visiting Philadelphia. And if you have time, go for a hike with your dog along the Schuylkill River Trail or in the Wissahickon Park.
Comment below if you have anything to add or if you have stayed at any of the locations in this article. I’m sure other people would like to hear about your experience.
Also, I have an article on the rates and cost for every type of pet service. The article is called Pet Services Rates but it also includes other subjects like Philly dog parks, pet-friendly hotels, 24-hour emergency vets, and adoption locations. Check it out if you are interested in other pet services located in the city.
