Undemanding tykes will gets their giggles flowing with the Rube Goldberg-style contraptions invented for the dogs.

...unapologetically geared towards younger viewers...

All that matters is that the loose ends of this sweet, kids-outsmart-the-adults fable are ultimately tied together nicely in a fashion certain to satisfy the average five year-old by the time the closing credits roll.

Not bad. It is funny and touching at times, even though the premise is pretty close to impossible.

You'll admire the doggie tricks and tolerate the rest, which is both the best and worst thing that can be said about it.

In Thor Freudenthal's heartwarming wag based on Lois Duncan's book, the strays aren't your usual mangy curs but well-groomed pedigreed show dogs who're aw-shucks cute.

So, never work with children and animals, eh?

Cinema em Cena

Até mesmo Cheadle e Kudrow, dois intérpretes normalmente confiáveis, parecem estar no piloto automático nesta produção que tem, como único atrativo, os truques de seu elenco de quatro patas.

The dogs are never quite as entertaining as they should be for the kids in the audience, and the hypercutesiness and speechifying at the end will lead to much tightening of adult sphincters.

Accompanying adults will be disappointed to see the talents of Lisa Kudrow wasted.

Anodyne family fare, Hotel is awash with all-American sentimentality but the many cute canines might just make it bearable for younger viewers.

Daily Record [UK]

Everyone needs love and a home, whether kids or animals, is the cheesy but entirely heartfelt message of this fairly predictable and old-fashioned kids' movie.

Cath Clarke
Guardian

The schmaltz is laid on thick, but kids love this sort of stuff and, refreshingly, the dog bits are done the old-fashioned, fun way: with animal trainers rather than CGI.

Despite all these reservations, many children will enjoy this picture, and it's the best-crafted, most entertaining Hollywood product of a very bad week.

Kids could do worse than check in at the two- star Hotel For Dogs this half-term.

Mark Adams
Sunday Mirror [UK]

It is a nice blend of slapstick fun, a little family pathos and a whole bunch of dogs of all shapes and sizes and is likely to be a popular draw for harassed parents looking for a little respite from the youngsters.

Inventive and endearing in places but ultimately an unsatisfying mix of slow plotting and superficial characterisation.

True, there's only the merest suggestion of an education system for these juveniles, but credibility's secondary when you've got lots of dogs doing cute stuff.

All the innocence of the Beethoven film series but with more dogs.
