Virginia Beach is a popular summer family destination and where the family goes, the family pet goes too. Fortunately, many Virginia Beach hotels are ready and willing to accommodate our beloved furry friends, sometimes free of charge and sometimes for a small additional fee. Virginia Beach hotels do not discriminate against the size of your pet, but most accept only one pet per room. You will be responsible for any damage your pet does and you will have to check with each hotel whether pets are allowed in all parts of the hotel, such as the swimming pool. Keep in mind that dogs are allowed on the beach in Virginia Beach before Memorial Day and after Labor Day, but during the summer season they may only visit the beach north of 42nd Street and south of the Sandbridge area. Dogs must be on a leash at all times.
