Hi. The usual requirement is to be at least 18 years old and have a valid credit card ( Visa, MC, Amex, etc.) I would double check on the Best Western web site what their policy is. Hope this helps. Sox

Hi SuperDRM, Yes we are canine friendly only and have a few pet friendly rooms. May I have you contact the hotel directly to ensure you have reserved a pet friendly room? Thank you and look forward to your arrival!
