VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -
Like to take your pet on vacation?
You might want to spend a night at a hotel in Valdosta.
It's ranked as one of the top ten most pet friendly properties in the country.
The La Quinta Inn and Suites was nine out of the ten.
10-year-old Damion is a guest at the La Quinta Inn just like his mom and dad. He watches T.V. in the comfort of the hotel room and goes for walks outside.
"He's our baby," said Mishelle Kochel. "We're tired of leaving him at home every time we travel and I knew La Quinta took pets."
Phillip and Mishelle Kochel are from West Palm Beach Florida. This past weekend they were at the University of Tennessee for Family weekend.
"He is part of the family," said Kochel.
If you're a pet owner like I am we all know it's hard to leave home without our furry companions.
Rick Oelkers is the general manager of the Valdosta La Quinta Inn. He says they are truly pet friendly not just pet tolerant.
"A lot of hotels they say their pet friendly but they're more pet tolerant because they charge an extra fee for the pets," said Oelkers.
The Kochel's like the huge walking area.
"We don't have to walk along the side of the fence where there's weeds and everything's overgrown," said Kochel.
The hotel says in the future they'll enclose the area for their four legged guests so that way travelers like German Pincher Damion can burn off energy without a leash from a long car ride and then make themselves at home.
The ranking came from the TripAdvisor web site based on surveys and user comments.
