Motel 6 (This is one exception to our requirement that Golden Bone™ establishments offer dogs something extra. We include Motel 6 because it was the first major chain to allow dogs. Motel 6 is truly the granddaddy of the dog-friendly lodging trend, and for the first major rollout of the Golden Bone Awards™ we have chosen to give it a “Lifetime Achievement” award.)
