Pet-Friendly Biloxi Hotels

by Cicely A. Richard

Biloxi, Mississippi, offers 24 hours of entertainment for adults and children, including casino resorts, historic museums and fishing expeditions. The city does not offer a wide selection of accommodations for visitors who bring pets with them. Nearby communities, though, provide additional pet-friendly hotels for vacationers who want to enjoy the Gulf of Mexico’s quartz sand. The Gulf Coast Veterinary Emergency Hospital, located within 15 miles of pet-friendly hotels, care for pets injured on vacation.
