Dog-Friendly Valdosta, Georgia-Where we visited on this trip to Georgia: The Quality Inn South
Valdosta, Georgia: On our way to Madeira Beach, Florida, Dexter The Dog, Grandma, Eddie, and I had an overnight stay in Valdosta Georgia. Traveling from Ohio to Florida in one day just wasn’t going to happen. Before we left for our trip, we booked a room with two double beds at The Quality Inn South. The location was perfect for us, just off Interstate 75 and north of the Florida-Georgia line and it was easy to find. This meant that we would be refreshed for our following day of travel and eager to visit the Florida welcome center bright and early. We were minutes from a variety of restaurants, which we appreciated after a long drive.
The Quality Inn South’s grounds were very well landscaped. Upon entering the check-in area, I was greeted by the friendly hotel clerk who made me feel welcome. The hotel lobby was bright, clean and inviting. As Dexter The Dog and my folks continued to walk to our room, I was again struck by the hotel grounds. Nothing fancy, but impeccably clean. The dog-friendly hotel room was perfect for our overnight stay. We had two comfortable double beds, desk, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. I especially appreciated the vanity sink and mirror outside of the bathroom. This is a great convenience when traveling with family. I went down to the front desk to ask for extra bath towels and the clerk was very kind and agreed, no questions asked. For whatever reason, getting more towels is like pulling teeth at some locations, but not here.
The hotel stay was quiet and peaceful. Just what we weary travelers needed. After a restful sleep, we hit the free continental breakfast. The breakfast bar was clean, full and fresh. They had a variety of juices, milk, coffee, bagels, muffins, donuts, fruit, yogurt, scrambled eggs, meat and a waffle maker. I actually made my first waffle! Dexter, of course, got his scrambled eggs.
Staying at The Quality Inn South in Valdosta, Georgia was a great experience. It is certainly a dog-friendly hotel I can recommend. The grounds were well-maintained, it was a perfect location off the highway, family friendly and I felt very safe walking the hotel grounds, something I value.
