Best Friends Roadhouse and Mercantile

3 Star Hotel

Pets are welcome and expected at this Kanab hotel! Your southern Utah vacation experience just got better: Welcome to the Best Friends Roadhouse & Mercantile, the latest (and greatest) lodging option among Kanab’s fast-growing hotel and motel offerings.



Located in the heart of Kanab, Utah, just five miles south of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, the Best Friends Roadhouse and Mercantile is an in-town extension of the warmth and hospitality you’ve grown to expect from Best Friends. The Roadhouse features 40 rooms as well as a variety of dog- and cat-friendly amenities and services, such as built-in cubbies for snuggling, dog washing stations, and a fenced dog park area with a splash zone – all with no additional pet fees. It’s an animal lover’s dream come true! Plus all proceeds from The Roadhouse go to support Best Friends’ mission of ending the killing of dogs and cats in our nation’s shelters by 2025.

Did you know that most national parks do not allow pets on the trails? That shouldn’t stop you and your best friends from traveling with you. Enjoy the national parks and leave your pets in your room. Set up a dog walker for your dogs while you are away for an additional charge. If you are traveling without your pet and want to engage in the full pet-centric experience, you can host a sleepover with an adoptable cat, dog or bunny from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.

We can’t wait to welcome you and your best friends to the Best Friends Roadhouse and Mercantile!
