Pet Policy & Service Animal Regulations

We love our furry friends as much as you love yours. However, for the safety of our guests and staff, pets are not allowed at the hotel, with the exception of service animals.

If you choose to bring your pet to Lake Tahoe, please contact the front desk before arrival, and we will provide you with a list of boarding facilities that take reservations. Then, enjoy beautiful Lake Tahoe outside of the hotel during the day with your pet, and check your animal into one of the many great boarding facilities to rest up at night!

If you have a service animal, we welcome you both to the Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel. We request that you inform the front desk that you will have a service animal in the room for emergency and evacuation purposes. We also request that you tie one of our LTRH ribbons to your leash so our employees can easily identify that your animal is a service animal and that you have registered it with the front desk.

We have the right to ask you to remove your service animal from the premises if: (1) the animal is out of control and the handler does not take effective action to control it or (2) the animal is not housebroken. If a service animal becomes aggressive or destructive, we have the right to ask that the service animal is removed from the premises. In this case, you are still welcome to stay without your service animal, and a list of boarding facilities will be provided. Guests are financially responsible for any damages caused by their service animal.

Service animals are to be with their handler at all times and are not to be left in the room unattended. If a service animal is found unattended in the room, we will issue a warning. If the service animal continues to be left in the room unattended, we have the right to ask that the animal is removed from the premises.

Service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work, or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. In those cases, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls.
