    Should a hotel be allowed to advertise as pet-friendly if their pet fee is nonrefundable?

    I've stayed at many four and five star pet-friendly hotels. Usually, pet fees are $20.00 to $50.00. However, while recently booking a room a hotel stated their pet fee was $100.00 nonrefundable. I canceled my reservation. A $100.00 nonrefundable pet fee doesn't seem pet-friendly to me and instead appears to price our four-legged friends out of the picture.

    To me, pet friendly simply means that they allow pets.  They charge for extra cleaning fees and potential damages, but at least part of that amount should be returned if there is no damage.

      I understand all dogs are not created equally in the area of their behaviors and bathroom habits. I do take issue when a hotel has a nonrefundable policy that prices a pet owner ($100.00) right out of the picture.
