Kelowna Pet Friendly Hotels: A Home Away from Home for the Whole Family

September 11, 2015

Stay at hotel Kelowna home renovations

If a renovation project has made your home uninhabitable, Kelowna pet friendly hotels offer a convenient accommodation alternative.

When most people think about visiting Kelowna pet friendly hotels with their dogs, it’s usually with vacation travel in mind. After all, finding accommodation in the Okanagan where your pooch is welcome can be a challenge.

However, there are times when Kelowna residents choose to book a stay at a local hotel for more practical reasons. Sometimes it’s a planned event such as a major home renovation, and sometimes it’s an unforeseen situation that forces people and pets to seek shelter in a pet friendly hotel Kelowna travellers recommend.


Renovation Upheaval

Home makeovers are an exciting time for many homeowners. Well, the finished product is anyway. Depending on the extent of the renovations, the ongoing disturbance can become a major hindrance to your daily life.

Whisking your family (including your four-legged fur babies) away to one of the Kelowna pet friendly hotels is an instant solution to the inconvenience for many reasons:

  • Don’t have to deal with noise, dust and debris
  • Alleviates pet anxiety
  • Keeps you out of the way of construction workers
  • An impromptu holiday is never a bad thing
  • It’s a chance to experience and explore the city from a new perspective


Unexpected Exodus

Many homeowners have experienced a situation where they’ve been forced to vacate their property. It’s unfortunate when it happens, but knowing there are Kelowna pet friendly hotels in the area offers peace of mind for families with dogs.

Some of these unanticipated emergencies include:

  • Burst pipes that flood the house
  • Insect infestation (ants, bedbugs and anything else that requires a fumigator)
  • Extended power outage
  • House fire
  • House damage from inclement weather


Extended Stays

If the renovation project (or whatever it is that’s keeping you away from your home) is going to last more than a few days, accommodation providers like the BEST WESTERN PLUS Kelowna Hotel & Suites offer self-catering suites (a number of pet friendly units are available, of course) for added convenience.

With options for a full kitchen or kitchenette, it’ll save you money by not having to buy all of your meals at restaurants.


Buying a New Home

Sometimes the reason people leave their homes is so that they can try and find a new one. Let’s say you’ve been transferred to a new position in Kelowna and you want to take the family to scope out the area. Using a Kelowna pet friendly hotel as a base of operations is a great way to get the family acquainted in their new surroundings.

Centrally located, Best Western Kelowna is within easy driving distance of all the most desirable neighbourhoods. Plus, once your house hunting is over, you’re just minutes away from some of the best shopping centres and restaurants in the city.
