Perks of our Pet-Friendly Hotel in Key West
Let your four-legged friend get in on the fun when you bring him or her along on your next big adventure at Key West Bayside Inn & Suites. Designed to make you feel right at home, our pet-friendly hotel in Key West knows that a family vacation is not complete when there’s a member missing. With a one-time pet charge of $50, furry friends that are 40 pounds and under can experience the comfort and convenience of our apartment-style suites just steps from the ocean — just like you!
Of course, we have a few rules that pet owners must follow so that all guests have a relaxing experience at the hotel. Those include:
- Dogs are required to be leashed at all times while in any public area.
- For the safety of staff and other guests, please display your “Pet in Room” door magnet outside the room when the four-legged friend is present.
- Dogs are not to be left in the room unattended.
- Dogs are not allowed in the pool area.
- Pet owners must sign a loss/damage waiver upon check-in.
Our hotel is not the only pet-friendly paradise in Key West. Enveloped by numerous dog-friendly beaches, stores, restaurants and bars, this seaside city is the ultimate playground for canines and their crew.
The sights and sounds of The Sunshine State aren’t limited to the two-legged. Well-behaved pets are welcome to select sunset sails, dolphin watching, paddle boarding, kayaking and custom beach combing/snorkel charters.
