Pet-Friendly Guide to Santa Maria

At Holiday Inn Santa Maria, we love cute puppers and are always excited to recommend our favorite dog-friendly spots along the Central Coast. Check out our Pet Friendly Guide to Santa Maria and feel free to ask the front desk about other great dog parks, restaurants, and cafes!

Santa Maria Dog Parks

For Santa Maria’s ultimate dog park experience, head down to Woof-Pac Park. Your pooch will be able to run free with other good doggos in a grassy, 3-acre, fenced off park! If you’re looking for something closer to the hotel, Preisker Park, Santa Maria’s largest park, offers train, a pond, and a creek for a scenic, leashed walk.

Dog-Friendly Restaurants

You’ll have no trouble finding great, dog-friendly patios during your stay in Santa Maria! For a healthy meal made from locally-sourced ingredients, don’t miss Moxie’s Cafe. If you’re in the mood for excellent authentic Mexican, bring your pup to Maya Mexican Kitchen! Margaritas and Nana’s Mole are a must!

Bring Your Pup to Pismo Beach!

Does your pupper love the water? Take the drive out to Pismo Beach for an afternoon of fun and sun on Pismo Beach’s dog-friendly oceanfront! After an exciting day of beach time, you’ll find plenty of dog friendly patios to enjoy relaxing meal before returning to Santa Maria.

Pet Supply Stores

Life happens, especially when traveling with your furry friend. If you forgot your pooch’s favorite toy or need to pick up more food, you’ll find plenty of great pet supply stores in Santa Maria. PetSmart on Bradley always does the trick, but the boutique That’s FETCH! and local chain Lemos Feed are also great options.
