Cypress Inn, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA

Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA

Stay: Probably the most famous dog-friendly hotel in the country, the Cypress Inn is co-owned by actress and animal activist Doris Day (she turns 90 this month). And even without its pet pedigree, it’s an appealing Mediterranean-style inn dating to 1929. Dog highlights include the weekday afternoon Yappy Hour at Terry’s Lounge, where dogs join their guardians for meals and drinks. You can also take your dog for an off-leash romp at nearby Carmel Beach. Rooms from $195, dog services from $30, Terry’s Lounge $$$;
