The city of Bozeman makes an excellent launching pad for a Montana adventure. You’re right next to Yellowstone National Park, and lots of hiking, biking, fishing or climbing, as well as skiing in the winter. All this outdoor fun means your dog may want to come along—and there are plenty of hotels that welcome your pup. Here are the best dog-friendly hotels in Bozeman.

New favorite hotel.” The hotel has lots of style too.
