Pet-Friendly Hotels: Best Friends Roadhouse and Mercantile

Look no further, we have found the Disneyland of all pet-friendly hotels in North America and it resides in Kanab, UT. During our recent visit to Kanab, we were able to sit, stay and relax at the Best Friends Roadhouse and Mercantile. Best Friends Animal Society really went all out when keeping you and your pets in mind when staying there. This property has 40 rooms and suites that are all pet friendly. You can have up to four household pets stay in your room and there is NO extra pet fee.


The Roadhouse has standard rooms, king suites and 2-level suites to choose from. We stayed in a standard room, which was perfect for us. Each room is dedicated to a Best Friends alumni animal and they have a picture displayed and share a story about that beloved animal in your room. There were dog bowls, a comfy dog bed that slides out from under your bed and an entry way that has an added door, so your pups don’t try to escape when you are going in and out of the room. Aside from your bed, they have a separate sitting are to enjoy. You truly feel welcome and comfortable during your stay.


The mercantile has a great selection of Best Friends gear. Don’t leave home without buying something for you, your pet and your pet-sitter. This is also a great place to enjoy a snack, relax and meet other visitors and their furry companions during your stay.

Dog Park & Splash Pad

They have a wonderful off-leash dog park onsite. You can admire the beautiful murals while the pups are off roaming around. We did not utilize the splash pad during this trip, but will the next time we visit. On those warmer days, it will be a hit with the pups.

Self-Serve Dog Wash & Laundry

After enjoying a day of hiking and playing is the sand, a bath was just what Wefos and Gracie needed. They have two tubs in the dog spa, along with shampoo, towels and grooming stations. They also have laundry onsite that the guests can use as well.

Continental Breakfast

Guests can enjoy complimentary continental breakfast each morning in the Mercantile. No need to leave your fur babies in the room. Everyone is welcome. They offer coffee, tea, juice, cereal, fruit and vegan pastries.

Pet Visits / Walks

Maybe you are going to explore an area in Kanab that is not pet-friendly or maybe your pups might be exhausted from the day before. No need to worry, you can request someone to come check in on our pets or even take them for a walk while you are off exploring. There is an additional fee and you can coordinate that with the front desk.

Sleep Over

If you are traveling solo and are missing the comfort of your furry companion, then why not arrange a sleepover with a dog, cat or bunny from the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. Arrangements can be made at the front desk.

Best Friends Roadhouse and Mercantile is the perfect place to call home during your stay in Kanab. What are you waiting for? Book your stay at the Best Friends Roadhouse and Mercantile today!

Waggin Tails, Happy Travels!
