Drury Inn & Suites made traveling with Diesel so easy!

Today's Barking Wednesday I want to talk about taking your dog on vacation. Diesel went on his first vacation. We traveled from Wisconsin to St. Louis, Memphis, Tupelo, MS, Nashville, and Campaign, IL then back home. We were excited about taking  our trip but nervous about how well Diesel would adjust to hours of driving.

Our first night we stayed outside of St. Louis - we choose The Drury Inn & Suites in Festus, MO.  We were amazed with the service and amenities. I highly recommend Drury Inn & Suites!!!! EXCELLENT!!!!


 
Drury Inns & Suites offer a huge Breakfast Bar every morning plus a Evening supper bar - complete with alcoholic beverages.   Not to mention excellent customer service - clean - modern - pool - free 60 minutes long distance calls plus much much more!!!  


All Drury Inns & Suites are PET FRIENDLY!!!  They only charge a $10 fee per stay for your pet!  

We enjoyed our stay at the Drury Inn in Festus, MO so much that I made reservations for the Drury Inn & Suites in Nashville and also Campaign, Il for the last days of our trip.
The Drury Inn & Suites are ideal for families. 

To offer breakfast and dinner included in your room is a huge plus for families. To take a family of 5 out to breakfast and supper daily while vacationing can be a hard hit to your vacation budget. SAVE $$$$$ with meals included in the room rate. The food taste GOOD!!!

Drury's pools were all very nice - the kids loved swimming under the wall allowing them to swim both inside and outside. It was a perfect night for swimming 88 degrees in Nashville at 9pm at night.

Drury Inn & Suites are excellent and Pet Friendly! 

 Here is a list of items to make sure to bring along on your trip for your pet.
  • Crate
  • Leash
  • Dog Dishes
  • Water Bowl - bottled water for the ride
  • Food - always bring a few extra days worth in case your plans are extended
  • Treats
  • Boogie Wipes - to clean up any messes. I use Boogie Wipes because they are natural and safe for people & pets 
I made Diesel his own vacation bag - it worked great keeping all of his items in his bag.

Planning and being prepared are key to having a successful trip with your pet!  Enjoy your vacation and have a fun time! Staying at The Drury Inns & Suites will make vacationing with your PET so easy  and FUN!

    1. Yes ~ they have I think about 120 hotels. Now when we decide we are going to need a hotel - I have been checking right away to see if a Drury Inn & Suites is in the area. We are planning a trip this fall to Frankenmuth, MI ! I was super excited when I seen there was a Drury there!

    1. It is really nice and yes pets are allowed in all rooms. What is really nice is the Free breakfast and free dinner which one night was hot dogs, chicken fingers, mac & cheese, chef salad, soup, chili, baked potatoes you can load lots of stuff on, nacho's. Plus free soda and popcorn all the time.

    1. Festus is just south of St Louis - hotel is right off the expressway making it very easy to locate. Everyone there is so so nice! Excellent customer service and the rooms were spotless. White linen -- very nice. We got the King Suite and it was excellent.
