Dog-friendly hotels: St. George Utah Motel 6

My friend who grew up in Utah recommended that I break my journey from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City at St. George. So pass up Las Vegas and stop at the St. George Motel 6 #4673 (205 N. 1000 East, St. George). For a bare-bones economy motel, this place really tries.

The charge in 2015 was $36.89 (not including tax). In 2016, the rate went up to $39.99 ($44.59 with tax). The first time, I had a microwave and fridge. The second time, I did not. Both times I was able to arrange to have a ground floor room. If you have your own food, there is a microwave available near the vending machines and ice machine.

The room is clean and comfortable.  You wish that some of the guests tried harder. There is a lovely strip of grass with has beautifully blooming roses and doggie poop bags. As you will find in most places, not everyone picks up after their dog.

There’s really not a great neighborhood to walk your dog. You’re surrounded by other hotels. Across the street is a strip mall that includes a smoothie and sandwich place that opens early in the morning. On the same side of the block, just down the street, is a Denny’s. Your room comes with a coupon to get a discount at the Denny’s. There’s also a Chinese restaurant that I didn’t try.

Sadly, in 2016, the dinosaur that sat outside of Sinclair’s gas station was gone. I hope it comes back. Seeing them always makes me smile. Overall, I like this Motel 6 and will return to this one.
